This Team covers the any Disaster that involve and form of Transport.

We also provide resources and assistance to those working on Disaster related profiles.

What we do

  • We are responsible for improving the free space pages and profiles of people involved in Transport Disasters. This includes sourcing, connecting, merging duplicates, correcting database errors, and writing biographies. We clean up Disaster related profiles and untangle family errors.
  • We create profiles for those who lost their lives and others involved in the disasters and connect them to our global tree.
  • We oversee of the related categories to ensure that our information is up to date and is consistent with the other Disaster Teams. This includes the revision of our categories, adding correct categories and deleting incorrect or unnecessary categories as needed. It also includes monitoring to ensure that all profiles are placed into the most accurate sub-category possible and not into any of the parent categories.
  • We maintain a list of resources, by adding new information, checking hyperlinks are not broken and removing information that is no longer relevant.
  • We create free space pages related disasters that involve Ships, Planes, and Trains other forms of transport, making them relevant to genealogy, by naming significant people involved, and providing sources for the information provided.
  • When we can, we help and advise others who are working on disaster related profiles. This includes answering questions asked on G2G.
