Mission

The US History Project aims to build profiles and free-space pages for those places and people who have explored, settled, founded, and built the US, both as a geographic area prior to nationhood, and as an established nation.

Goals

The mission of the US History project is to create, source, connect, and improve profiles and free-space pages related to the people and places in the building of the USA. It also serves as an umbrella under which many sub-projects can be started to cover events and places throughout the country's history. Our goals include:

  1. All duplicates merged into lowest number, using G2G to discuss LNAB issues as they arise. Be sure to tag the discussion with the surname(s) of the profiles involved as well as states that may be involved and with "us_history".
  2. PPP added to final profile, if it meets Project Protection Guidelines. A Leader can help with this.
  3. Appropriate categories added, discussing with the Categorization Project as necessary for creation of categories without precedent.
  4. Project templates added, if the person needs to be PPP'd or managed by the project.
  5. Biography cleaned up and written, using the WikiTree Style Guide (can work with Profile Improvement Project for help).
  6. Attached family meets these goals, even if they are not part of the project (templates excluded).
  7. Attached to the main WikiTree family tree (ask the Connectors Project for help).
  8. Free-Space pages built to represent important events and linked with associated state pages.
  9. Nothing created without respected sources added-no Ancestry trees!

Project To-Do List

We use maintenance categories to develop lists of what needs done. Each state and specific sub-project has its own category for what needs done. Here is the link to the main project category, with the states as sub-categories.

Template

This template is for use on profiles that are part of a sub-project of the main project United States History. They should only be used on profiles that are of importance to the project or need to be PPP'd and managed by the project. They are not for every single person from that region. A recognition template might be used in that circumstance.

Currently accepted values for the sub-project parameter are:

  • any US State

Sample usage: {{US History|sub-project=Iowa}}
