The Latin American Roots Project is organized into a number of different teams, all working towards the project goals. Please see the list of the teams below, and who to contact if you have any questions:


Latin American Orphaned Profiles Team

The Orphaned Profiles Team consists of WikiTreers at all levels and is a great starting team for members coming into the Latin American Roots Project.

Members work on orphaned profiles (profiles without a profile manager), doing whatever is needed on that particular profile: sourcing, researching, gathering census data, tidying up the text in the biography box and removing unnecessary GEDCOM clutter, etc.

Latin American Location Teams

The Location Teams consist of WikiTreers at all levels who are interested in working in one or more specific locations. Here you can develop regional Space pages, find resources, or just add profiles for people that lived there.

Profile Improvers Team (PIP)

The goal of the Latin American Roots Project is to raise Latin American profiles to the highest standard possible and make Latin American profiles the best that they can be. The PIP Team is on the front line of this effort. Whether it be through sourcing, profiling, connecting or "data-doctoring," profilers are making contributions to improve Latin American profiles all the time. In addition to this, the Latin American Roots Project manages a number of profiles where extra focus is given. Further still are the PPPs (Project Protected Profiles). The criteria for these is that the profiles must be at least 200 years old or notable, and must be contentious or duplicated. Please see Karen Tobo for details. A list of the team can be found below:

Hi, I'm new to the Latin America project. Which team needs the most work? Or just assign me to whatever team is a high priority for the group.

Are you good at profile improvement, Beverly? Any one of those roles would be great!

I'm getting better with practice. Stick me on sourcing and data doctoring.
