Welcome to the Germany Project Portal

Willkommen auf dem Deutschland Portal

The German Roots/Deutschland Portal is a part of the Germany Project and our mission is to make all things Germany and German Roots related more accessable for all. We hope that this will help facilitate collaboration among members, particularly between people living in Germany and researchers with German Roots from around the entire world.

Similarly, the Germany Project is focused on improving and adding profiles for people who considered themselves German and the ancestors of those people.

German Roots


Germany Project

The Germany project aims to:

  • Link together existing Germany projects
  • Encourage new projects to be created
  • Encourage collaboration between Germany based users and people from around the world with German roots
  • Promote and facilitate German genealogical research

Please join us!

Germany Project is a project focused on profiles with a German connection and also making WikiTree more user friendly through the Germany Portal

Requirements to Join

Anyone who has signed the honor code can join this project. There is no obligation on how much time to spend working on this project. All and any contributions are appreciated. Joining at least one team is expected.

Project Goals

  1. Add 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. Add sticker to the profiles along with any relevant categories.
  5. Contact one of the project Leaders to request PPP status for those profiles that meet the criteria for project protection. This will protect them from an incorrect merge.
  6. Profiles of family members are correct and documented.
  7. Profiles are linked to the greater WikiTree. Try to find the connection.
  8. Work on sources for unsourced profiles
  9. Work with the Global Cemeteries Project to ensure cemeteries in Germany are photographed and records added to WikiTree.
  10. Collaborate and work together to make German genealogy research easier for all.
  11. Create a supportive, active and encouraging place for each other to navigate our German Roots together!

  • Zusammenarbeit zwischen Nutzern in Deutschland und Nutzern aus aller Welt mit deutschen Wurzeln zu stärken
  • Ahnenforschung in Deutschland voranzubringen und zu erleichtern

Das deutschsprachige Projekt konzentriert sich auf Profile mit einer Verbindung nach Deutschland und möchte WikiTree durch das deutschsprachige Portal benutzerfreundlicher für deutschsprachige Nutzer machen.

Ziele des Projekts

1. Hinzufügen von dazugehörigen Profilen, Prüfung, ob Profile schon auf WikiTree bestehen, damit keine doppelten Profile gemacht werden

2. Nutzen von WikiTree Styles and Standards, um nach dem Hochladen von GEDCOMs Profile von unlesbaren Daten zu reinigen

3. Finden von Originaldokumenten anstatt von abgeleiteten Dokumenten

4. Hinzufügen von Stickern und relevanten Kategorien an die Profile

5. Kontaktieren von den Projektleitern, um Projektschutz für Profile zu erreichen, die die Kriterien für den Projektschutz erfüllen. Dies wird verhindern, dass sie mit einem falschen Profil zusammengelegt werden

6. Profile von Familienmitgliedern sind korrekt und belegt

7. Verbinden von Profilen mit dem großen WikiTree-Stammbaum. Versuchen, die Verbindung zum großen Stammbaum zu finden

8. Finden von Belegen für Profile ohne Quellen

9. Zusammenarbeit mit dem Global Cemeteries Project , um sicherzustellen, dass Friedhöfe fotografiert werden und die Aufzeichnungen zu WikiTree hinzugefügt werden

10. Zusammenarbeit, damit Ahnenforschung in Deutschland für alle leichter wird

11. Schaffung einer unterstützenden, aktiven und ermutigenden Umgebung, damit wir alle unsere deutschen Wurzeln finden können

--- Any improvements you can make to the profiles of the Germany Project are welcome, but here are some specific tasks we're working on:

  • For each person:
    • All duplicates merged into the final lowest profile ID number.
    • 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.
    • Children are linked if able
    • Connected to Global Family Tree
    • Create Cemetery Category if known
    • Create City freepages and link profiles to city and region categories
    • provide gravestone picture if possible
  • Monitor G2G for posts using the Germany tag
    • Answer questions
    • Encourage members to become involved in the project
  • For historically significant German ancestors:
    • Final ID locked, marking the profile as project protected (must be done by one of the Project Leaders), if the profile meets those requirements
    • {{German Roots}} template at the top of the page.
    • German Roots project account is set as a manager of the profile.
  • For descendants of German ancestors and all others who are not "historically significant":
    • {{German Roots Sticker}} template may be applied to profiles.
