Use the following template:
The goal of this project is to create genealogies and biographies for those families that settled the tract of land that became known as Germanna.
Project Leader: Laurie Kelley.
Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.
- To merge all duplicates into the final lowest profile ID number.
- Final ID locked, marked as project protected (must be done by one of the Leaders), if the profile meets those requirements.
- Germanna 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.
- Children are linked if able.
- Link Profile to Global Family Reunion
- Create a Cemetery Category, if known
- Create City freepages and link profiles to city and region categories
- Provide gravestone picture if possible
