Project: Wild Wild West

Categories: Wild Wild West Project | Wild Wild West

The Wild Wild West Project is a Sub-Project of the Westward Ho Project



Welcome to the Wild Wild West! Project


This project is for those who have WikiTree profiles of notable people from the period of US Western Expansion between 1800 and 1925. This includes anyone that would be listed in Wikipedia or known in popular culture. These individuals are often referred to as legends. Check out the Wild Wild West Space Page to see some examples. This is a very fun project!


A project coordinator is needed to lead this project.

Any improvements you can make to the profiles of the Wild Wild West are welcome, but here are some specific goals we're working towards:

  • For each person:
    • All duplicates merged into the final lowest profile ID number.
    • Final ID locked, marking the profile as project protected (must be done by one of the Project Leaders)
    • Template included on the page
    • All relevant categories are added
    • Parents are correct and documented
    • Biography is cleaned up, free of any GEDCOM junk, Ancestry trees, etc., and ideally has an actual written biography.
