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!
- 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.
- Please see our list of goals for a basic overview of ways you can help.
- Add profiles for outlaws, checking for existing profiles to avoid duplication. If any duplicate profiles exist, request merges, starting with the oldest generation.
- If profiles were loaded by GEDCOM, use WikiTree Styles and Standards to clean up residue and broken links.
- Search out original rather than derivative documentation and add sources.
- Write comprehensive, well-sourced biographies.
- Add the Outlaws template to the profiles that require project management and/or any relevant categories.
- Contact a project leader to request PPP status for those profiles that meet the criteria for project protection. This will protect them from an incorrect merge.
- Make sure profiles of all family members are correct and documented.
- Profiles need to be linked to the greater WikiTree. Try to find the connection.
- Please add the applicable category to the template that best describes your outlaw. The project box should be applied only to profiles managed by the project. If the project does not yet manage the profile, contact a project leader to add the project as co-manager. Copy/paste the following:
||... ... ... was an outlaw.|
