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. If no new project exists, mostly likely this work has been stopped. Feel free to take over.
