What We Do: Connect Profiles to Our Shared Tree
WikiTree's mission is to connect the human family on one tree that we all share. The Germany Project would love to see all German profiles connected to the larger tree. This team focuses on linking to our main Global Family Tree all the loose German branches and profiles around WikiTree.
For more information on making connections on WikiTree, see Help:Unconnected, which has step-by-step instructions on how to connect the unconnected.
This team works off lists (links below) which include unconnected profiles of people who were born or died in Germany.

How to Participate
- Click on a link to one of the unconnected profile lists below (the main list, by century, or by region). Those links will take you to a WikiTree+ search page.
- The pages are set up to be sorted by birth date; however, you can edit the search parameters to sort by name (first or last), birth or death location, or date of death.
- Click on "Get Profiles" in the blue box in the left column and you'll get a list of unconnected profiles.
- Choose a profile and try to connect it to our global tree.
LISTS OF UNCONNECTED PROFILES
- Click this link: MAIN UNCONNECTED PROFILES LIST, then click the blue "Get Profiles" box in the left column to get a list of unconnected profiles. NOTE: There are over 90,000 total unconnected German profiles, so you'll probably want to break the list down by century or region, below.
- The list above, broken apart by century, is as follows:
- Unconnected profiles can also be seen on our main Regions Team page, where they are separated by region in the table.
- If you're familiar with using WikiTree+, you can narrow the search to a specific last name, place of interest, etc. See the WikiTree+ Help page for tips on how to search WikiTree+.
