This page was created to enable as many people as possible to collaborate on various "merge projects", throughout the so-called "big-tree" (and on other trees if required). This page is the "entry point" to all such projects.

It is highly suggested that we create a '''separate page''' for each "merge project".

So keeping them separate will make people's life easier. Project pages are described below.

A list of links to profiles that are central to the project (the start of a royal line for instance), and various important points within it, to make getting around that part of the tree easier. It would be most useful, of course, to include a list of duplicate copies of the starting profiles. Also, including each person's birth and death years, will make using the search funcions to find more duplicates, that much easier.

Another thing that would be a good idea to note, are any '''naming conventions''' you are trying to establish in this part of the tree. For example: in the Biblical lines alternate names (spellings or actual names) are seperated by / marks, the "English" spellings first and then the Hebrew.

Geni has implemented the vastly better Projects, which are integrated directly into the site, and give project members various tools to make the work easier. New projects are constantly being added, and some of them have done amazing work. The current list of projects can be found here:
Genealogy Projects

In order to get started with your project (or join one), you should have to have a reasonable understanding of the following concepts. So follow the links to references about them.

History

If you are still here, the rest of this page is a lesson in Geni history...

Once upon a time, long long ago, around March of the year 2009, before Geni even implemented Collaborators, we tried to use this Wiki to coordinate our work, through the projects listed below. This didn't really work, because the Wiki didn't get enough traffic, and the projects themselves were hard work.

Previous Merge Projects

The following is a list of these older incarnation of "projects", in semi-chronological order. Many of these have been replaced with newer projects. Links to these will be also listed where known. Not all new projects are an exact match of the older project's scope. Some of the new projects have other projects that are related to them, listed on the project page. If no new project exists, mostly likely this work has been stopped. Feel free to take over.
