Deutschland Portal - Deutsche/German German translation version.

German Roots Portal in English. A project for anyone with German Heritage and roots. Focused on pre-1871.

German Roots Project

The German Roots project aims to:

• Link together existing German Roots 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!

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

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!
