The template is {{United States|sub-project=Vermont}} which will give you:

... ... ... is a part of Vermont history.
Join: Vermont Project
Discuss: Vermont

This above template is for use only on profiles that are important to the project (typically people significant to Vermont history) or that need to be project protected and managed by the project.

It is not for every single person from Vermont. The Vermont Sticker can be used for profiles of people who will not be managed by the project. Usage examples:

Deceased persons, default version: {{Vermont Sticker}}
... ... ... was a Vermonter.
Living Persons {Vermont Sticker|living=y}}
... ... ... is a Vermonter.
Custom text is also possible. For example:
{{Vermont Sticker|living=y|a native of the Green Mountain State.}}
... ... ... is a native of the Green Mountain State..


The overall goals of the United States Project are to create and develop profiles on WikiTree for those who lived in Vermont and the other states in the union. To meet these goals:

  1. Add Vermont-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. Write comprehensive, well-sourced biographies.
  5. Make sure profiles of all family members are correct and documented.
  6. Profiles need to be linked to the greater WikiTree. Try to find the connection.

List of Things To Do

  1. Need space pages created and developed for Vermont counties and towns, and need the county pages linked to this page. Would you like to lead a county project?
  2. If you have any Vermont state resources that you are willing to do lookups, please add them to the Vermont Resources Page.
  3. If you live in Vermont, please consider adding Catalog: Vermont Research Assistance to your Wikitree profile page.

Ongoing List of Things to Do

  1. Cemeteries in Vermont need to be photographed and the categories added to profiles on WikiTree. See the Vermont Cemeteries Project
  2. Expand the short descriptions and add links to additional resources on the category pages for your favorite Vermont towns (find the town categories under the county categories in Category: Vermont.
  3. Work on Vermont's unconnected and unsourced profiles.
  4. Create new profiles for people of Vermont who are documented in a family member's profile, but might not have their own profiles yet. See Needs Profiles Created
  5. Work on Suggestions for profiles from Vermont, as reported by the Data Doctors Project.
  6. Add profiles for the men who died in World War I, serving from Vermont in the Great War project and for the Roll of Honor project.
  7. Add the relevant town categories (or county categories if no towns can be identified) to the profiles of individual people who are currently categorized in Category:Vermont.
