How to Join


For a list of members with the badge, see the badge feed.

Project Leaders: Maggie N

Project Coordinator for Romanian Roots -

  1. Maggie N to join and for the project badge.
  2. Add SLAVIC_ROOTS and ROMANIAN_ROOTS to your G2G tag feed.

Project Goals

  1. Add related profiles, 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. Add template to the profiles along with any relevant categories.
  5. Contact (leader name) to request PPP status for those profiles that meet the criteria for project protection. This will protect them from an incorrect merge.
  6. Profiles of family members are correct and documented.
  7. Profiles are linked to the greater WikiTree. Try to find the connection.
  8. Work on sources for unsourced profiles
  9. Work with the Global Cemeteries Project to ensure cemeteries in these countries/areas are photographed and records added to WikiTree.


  • Maggie - categorize regions for profiles that were born, married or died in Romania.

To-Do List

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  1. Identify profiles and tag them with appropriate categories
  2. Spread the word to others with Romanian heritage or interest in the area
  3. Identify people who can help with documents or direct research
  4. Establish project pages for other categories under the Romania umbrella

    • For those that migrated from Romania to another country, you can also use the Migrating Ancestor Template: (Canada used as example below).
    {{Migrating Ancestor
    |origin = Romania
    |destination = Canada
    |origin-flag = European_Flags-19.png
    |destination-flag = Flags-1.png
    Gives you this:
    Flag of Romania
    ... ... ... migrated from Romania to Canada.

    • Free Space page for Romania Project. Will list sources on this page. Romanian Free Space
    • To add the profile to a specific city/town/area in Romania, please add it to the proper category ([[:Category:|Romania see the list here]]) - if it does not exist, please contact Summer O to create it. (These are currently in the process of being created).
