Project: Profile Improvement/Unknowns


Unknowns Project

Welcome to the Unknowns Project! This is a sub-project of the Profile Improvement Project.


Our mission is to research and find the names of all the Unknowns on WikiTree, whether it is their last name, first name, or full name that is not known, we hope to give them back their identity.

To-Do or Task List

To participate in the project, we have a list of tasks that we need accomplished. To see details about the task, volunteer, participate in the discussion, or ask questions about it, click on the link, which will take you to the G2G thread about the task. Be sure to post on that thread if you complete the task so we can take it off the list!

We use [[Category:Unknowns]] as our work list.

  • If you spot a profile with Unknown as one of the names, put it in the category so it can be worked on.
  • Pick a name from the category and start working on that person. Be sure to start a G2G thread about that profile so you have help from the community and post it back here in the list until you get your mystery solved.
