Once upon a time, long long ago, around March of the year 2009, even before Geni 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. But NOW...

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, you should have to have a reasonable understanding of the following concepts. So follow the links to references about them.
