Project: Outlaws

Categories: Outlaws | Outlaws Project

The Outlaw Project is a sub-project of the Black Sheep Project

Welcome to the Outlaws Project!

An outlaw is a lawless person or habitual criminal, one who is a fugitive from the law. They may have committed any manner of crime.

Mission: This project is to highlight the profiles of those people who became outlaws.

You don't have to be related to an outlaw to join the project. Anyone that has an interest in developing profiles for outlaws is welcome! If you would like to participate, please do the following

  1. Answer our G2G joining post to join and receive a badge
  2. Add OUTLAWS tag to your G2G tag feed.
  3. Initiate a Trusted List request to be added to our Project Member Page and edit the page by adding your name to the projects you are working on. We use this page to keep up with what is happening on the project.
  4. Please see our list of goals for a basic overview of ways you can help.


  1. Add profiles for outlaws, checking for existing profiles to avoid duplication. If any duplicate profiles exist, request merges, starting with the oldest generation.
  2. If profiles were loaded by GEDCOM, use WikiTree Styles and Standards to clean up residue and broken links.
  3. Search out original rather than derivative documentation and add sources.
  4. Write comprehensive, well-sourced biographies.
  5. Add the Outlaws template to the profiles along with any relevant categories.
  6. Contact Carrie to request PPP status for those profiles that meet the criteria for project protection. This will protect them from an incorrect merge.
  7. Make sure profiles of all family members are correct and documented.
  8. Profiles need to be linked to the greater WikiTree. Try to find the connection.
