The Slavic Roots Project is a "Top Level" project that encompasses sub-projects for profiles of those with Polish, Russian, Czech, Ukrainian, Slovak, and other Slavic ancestry. It serves a central directory of all that is going on in the sub-projects.

Project Leaders: Maggie N, Michael Maranda, Summer Orman

  1. Post an answer here on our G2G "How to to join" thread:
  2. Add SLAVIC_ROOTS to your G2G tag feed.
  3. Request to join our Google discussion group.

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.

To-Do List

  1. Identify profiles and tag them with appropriate categories
  2. Spread the word to others with Slavic 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 Slavic umbrella

  • Romanian Roots Project Page This project is presently under our umbrella but that may change. Romanians are not categorized among the Slavic peoples, but there is Slavic cultural influence and there may be some genetic influence as some Slavic populations were assimilated.
