Louisiana Profile Improvement Team

The purpose of the Profile Improvement Team is to offer the ability to focus on a particular aspect of work on profiles across the State of Louisiana. By dividing tasks by the type of work to be done, project members can work efficiently within their areas of expertise and preference. Team members are encouraged to join the Profile Improvement Project on WikiTree, or one of its sub-projects or related projects.

The primary goal of the Louisiana Profile Improvement Team is to make Louisiana profiles free of technical errors, with accurate and reliably sourced information, and well written narrative biographies. We want them to be useful as well as interesting to genealogists and other visitors.


If you enjoy improving profiles, regardless of where in the state they are located, there are plenty of opportunities!

Team Coordinator:
To volunteer for a team, contact a project leader about the teams that interest you most!
  • Louisiana Arborists Team - Focus on finding and merging duplicate Louisiana profiles, working according to standards set by the Arborists Project. Where questions or conflicts exist, these members also help to properly resolve issues before merging.
    • Team Leader:
  • Louisiana Data Doctors Team - Work on cleaning and correcting technical errors, mistakes, and inconsistencies revealed in Suggestion lists generated by the Data Doctors Project. This can also be done in conjunction with the weekly Data Doctors challenges.
    • Team Leader:
  • Louisiana Sourcerers Team - Add and improve sources on Unsourced or under-sourced profiles, using special maintenance categories. Our minimum goal is to include sources to support every family connection - parents, spouses, and children - as well as sources to support each birth, marriage, death or burial. There is also a need to help us identify unsourced Louisiana profiles, to make it easier for volunteers to find them.
    • Team Leader:
  • Louisiana BioBuilders Team - Write narrative biographies based on sourced data in the profile, and convert sources into in-line citations according to WikiTree recommended styles and standards. This work will focus on well-sourced, project-managed profiles that are ready to be organized into a written narrative. It can also include orphaned profiles, as well as non-project-managed profiles that have been identified by their contributors using the "Louisiana, Needs Biography" category.
    • Team Leader:
  • Louisiana Connectors Team - Work on connecting our loose branches to the main global family tree, using tools and processes developed by the Connectors Project. The more connected we are, the easier it will be for other WikiTree members to link to their Louisiana relatives.
    • Team Leader:
  • Louisiana Gedcom Team - Clean up badly formatted and poorly sourced profiles that were the result of GEDCOM imports, especially from the earlier days of WikiTree before improvements were made to the process. We also add maintenance categories where needed to draw the attention of other volunteers who wish to help make improvements.
