Surnames/tags: Bahai Baha'i_Faith Bahá'í
The purpose of this project is to provide a collaborative environment for WikiTree members researching genealogies of members of the Baha'i Faith.
The goals of this project include:
- Improving existing profiles of Baha'is, including biographies, family connections, sources, and categories
- Identifing and adding new profiles for Baha'is, with attention to proper sourcing, biographies, and family connections
- Creating and managing pages for key sources for biographical and genealogical information about Baha'is
- Working with the categorization project to maintain and appropriately develop subcategories for the Baha'i Faith
- Working with the technical experts on WikiTree concerning issues arising from use of multiple scripts (notably the right-to-left Arabic script used in Arabic, Persian, etc.)
Approach to adding & improving profiles
What we're hoping to achieve with each profile is in line with the basics of Wikitree:
- Making sure the person has at least the basic information: exact birth & death dates, places, etc.;
- Completing a basic biography including a mention of the person's work with the Baha'i Faith;
- Connecting that person to other family members on WikiTree; and
- Incorporating sources for the above information and relationships.
It is important to remember that everything is a work-in-progress. Oftentimes we don't have/can't find all of the information right away. So, we add what we have (i.e., "start with what you know"), and if more info comes to light later on, OR, if someone else comes by who can add more, then we add it. The great thing about WikiTree is that it's a collaborative effort. We don't all need to be professional genealogists to help one another. We also don't need to be great writers or even great researchers. We just do what we can and work together to build our collective history.
