Goals

This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about one surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect. Any variant of Driggers may be added to the study.


Task List

  1. Add the category to each profile of your Dr*g*rs family.
    You can add the category code [[Category:Driggers Name Study]] or
    the One Name Study template {{One Name Study|name=Driggers}} (which will add the category automatically).
  2. Once you have added your profiles to the project, please check the name index for duplicates.
    You might find the profiles easier to review in a table format.
    If you get an SDMS Server error, click OK, then look for the blue "Get Profiles" button in the left column and click it.
  3. Check for unconnected Driggers and see if you can find the missing link
  4. You can help with Unsourced Driggers (see our Sourcing Help section)
  5. If you see a Dr*g*rs profile that says No Profile Manager, add the category
  6. You could check to see if other categories could be added
    Look at the last column of the profile index table to see which categories are already on the profile.
    The secret to category success is look at the links on the page to see which is most accurate and click it.
    Repeat that process on each category page until there isn't a link to a better category.
    At the top of your last page, copy the heading "Category:name of category"
    Go back to the profile, type [[, paste the category name you copied, and type ]]
    1. Cemeteries
    2. Regions
    3. Military
    4. Other Categories
  7. If you run across privacy protected profiles, you could copy and paste this message in comments, just add your name at the end:

Sourcing Help

I am not the greatest at sourcing so this will be a learning experience for me also.

Should the category be added to women who marry in to the Driggers family? There may be profiles for women whose maiden name is unknown.

Hi Melissa, I added the Driggers family that I am aware of to the study. Thanks for starting this!

I've added the category to all the descendants of William Dreigers (Driggers) which are open or on which I have trusted list access.

I've sent a private message to the PM of Joshua Driggers's children's profiles, explaining the ONS and asking him to consider adding the category.

Do you have a next step for the study? Is there anything I can do to help. This is direct line for me, so I have great interest.

Hi! I've added some text to Category:Driggers Name Study and a redirect from the Driggers surname page. And you've done a G2G post. That's all I know to do. Maybe others in G2G could suggest more.

Cheers, Liz
