Mission

Project Sweden aims to provide mutual support and resources for WikiTreers working on and improving profiles with a connection to Sweden. A substantial number of WikiTreers have ancestors who migrated from Sweden. There is also a growing number of Swedish participants in WikiTree.

How to Join

Project participants need to be members of WikiTree. If you are not yet a WikiTree member, see Help: How to Use WikiTree to get started.

Goals

The goals of Project Sweden are:

  • to improve Swedish profiles by
    • including quality sources
    • writing and cleaning up biographies
    • elimination of duplicates
    • error correction
  • to help with g2G questions related to Sweden
  • to monitor the Swedish category system and keep it navigable and useful

Resources

There are several subcategories in Category: Sweden that contain resources for working on Swedish genealogy in WikiTree.

Categories

Since the Swedish parishes are so important for genealogy in Sweden it is very helpful to categorize your profiles by parish. There are currently well over 2000 categories for parishes in Sweden - almost a full set. When you put a category like [[Category: Leksand (W)]] on one of your profiles the profile will appear on the category page together with others who were born, lived or died there. Two or three location categories on a profile is usually enough.

Because there are many cases where more than one Swedish parish has the same name, the parish categories are named with the parish name plus the county code in parenthesis. The county code is there instead of the name of the county to make the category name shorter.

When a parish category is getting filled up - nearing 200 categorized profiles - you may want to create subcategories for villages, hamlets or farms. These should be of the form [[Category: Altsarbyn, Rättvik (W)]], i.e. Village, Parish, (County code). If it is necessary, subcategorization could proceed another level, with different farms as subcategories of a village, but the general rule is to avoid creating extra layers of navigation.

Parishes are grouped by county - Leksand and Rättvik are both Parishes in Dalarna. The county category - in this case Dalarna County - is a toplevel category that should not be put on a profile that has a parish category.

Templates

  • Sweden Project Box - should only be used on profiles managed by Project Sweden.
  • Swedish profiles that are not managed by the project can have a Sweden Sticker
  • Swedish Profession Templates - these templates can be added to people with specific titles or trades. The text in the template can be written so a link can take you to the specific category of the event, group or parish. There are no templates for farmers or crofters since there were so many of them.

Uppdrag

Sverigeprojektet är till för att koordinera arbetet med profiler, kategorier och sidor med anknytning till Sverige och ge ömsesidigt stöd till släktforskare med intresse för Sverige. Det är naturligtvis särskilt värdefullt för emigrant-ättlingar att kunna få hjälp av släktforskare med erfarenhet av Sverige och tillgång till svenska källor. Det kan också finnas behov för oss svenkspråkiga att få kommunicera på vårt eget språk.

Resurser

På kategori-sidan för finns en del resurser för att skapa svenska profiler i WikiTree, bland annat svenska flaggor och emblem

Mallar (templates)

  • Sweden Template - skall endast användas på profiler som har Project Sweden som manager.
  • Svenska profiler som inte har projektet som manager kan istället ha en Sweden Sticker
  • Mallar för yrken i Sverige - dessa mallar kan läggas till på profiler med specifika titlar eller yrken. Texten i mallen kan skrivas så att en länk tar dig till en specifik kategori för händelsen, grupp eller församling. Det fins inga mallar för bönder eller torpare eftersom det fanns så många av dem.
