The goals of the Wales Project is to gather together members with like interests of Wales and Welsh History, and to collaborate and Improve profiles within those interests. Our final goal is to make all Welsh Profiles the best they can be; well sourced and well written. Project members can take primary responsibility for a specific Welsh surname through the One Name Studies Project and work on merging duplicates, cleaning up profiles, adding sources, and removing incorrect information.

Here are some specific goals we're working towards:

  • All Welsh profiles duplicates merged into the lowest profile ID number.
  • All relevant categories are added
  • Parents are correct and documented
  • Unsourced Welsh profiles to be sourced.
  • Work on cleaning up profiles that sit in the Wales Project Maintenance Categories and DB Errors list.
  • Biography is cleaned up, free of any GEDCOM junk, unsourced family trees, and ideally has a well written biography.
  • Stickers are added to profiles where appropriate.
