Welcome to the Nuns in Australia project.

Project Goals

The main aim of this project is to honor the work and dedication of Australian nuns.

Specifically this is achieved by creating Wikitree profiles for each of them and categorising them in a way that makes it easy to view them all in the one place.

Until such times as more women have profiles, we will use available sources to compile as extensive a list as possible.
Return to the main Nuns in Australia Project page for a list of Locality-based Free-Space Profiles.
Locailities which are not listed can be found on the Everywhere Else Free-Space Profile.

Project Structure

Task 1: Create new Wikitree profiles for Australian Nuns

Task 2: Add the project category to existing profiles of Australian Nuns. (see below)

Task 3: Assemble a comprehensive list of Nuns sorting them by their Order.

Tasks 1 and 2 can be undertaken by an individual without joining the project.

Please feel free to create a Wikitree profile for any of the Nuns that are listed in the last section if none exists.

Add the project tags
$Category:Brassil-22 Nuns in Australia$ and
$Space:Nuns in Australia$
(replacing the $ with double square brackets) to any profiles that you might already manage.

Task 3 requires a prospective project member to formally join the project, as only people who are on the project's Trusted List can edit the text on this page.
