Project: Spies and Traitors

Categories: Spies and Traitors Project | Spies and Traitors

The Spies and Traitors Project is a sub-project of the Black Sheep Project

Welcome to the Spies and Traitors Project!

This project is to highlight the profiles of those who lived a secret life as a spy.
They spied for their country as a patriot or against their country as a traitor.

A spy is a person who secretly collects and reports information on the activities, movements, and plans of an enemy or competitor.
A traitor is a person who betrays a friend, country or principle.


How to Join

The Spies and Traitors Project is a sub-project of black_sheep.gif

To see our current members, check out the badge feed.

The leader of the Spies and Traitors Project is Dean Anderson.

You don't have to be related to a spy or traitor to be a member of this project. Anyone with an interest 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 the spies_and_traitors tag to your list of followed tags on G2G.
  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 Spies and Traitors, 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 Spies and Traitors template to the profiles along with any relevant categories.
  6. Contact Abby 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.
