Igo Name Study

How you can help

Any research on the Igo surname is welcome and valuable, please add your name, focus of research and contact info below.

If you wish to help with the existing research plan, please jump right in using the Igo Name Study Maintenance Categories, which identify the work needed on existing profiles here at Wikitree.

  • If you identify a profile that needs something, please add the appropriate category from the link above (descriptions of the category and the tasks it identifies are included)
  • Once the work has been completed, simply delete the Maintenance Category for that task from the profile.
  • If you feel a new category is needed, please contact Jon Crawford with the information so that it can be added to the Igo Name Study categories
