Revision as of 20:26, 2 November 2011

Welcome to the Germany barn raising page! A wiki barn raising is a short, focused community effort to create or revise content relating to a specific locality or topic. The following tasks need to be accomplished during the Germany barn raising beginning in March 2009. Please volunteer to complete one or more tasks by adding your name to this list. Before you can add your name to the list below, you must register.. After you have registered and confirmed your e-mail address:

  1. Log in to the Wiki
  2. Navigate to the Germany Barn Raising page
  3. On the Germany Barn Raising page, click the "Edit" page option located in the page options box to the right. This will open the "Editing" window.
  4. Locate the task you wish to work on in the tables below, then input three tildes (~~~) in the 'sign up...' column (the third column) across from the task description. This will automatically insert a link to your user page and allow you to "sign up" for a task. More than one user may sign up for a task, and should collaborate together to avoid repetitive or conflicting information.
  5. Scroll down to the bottom of the editing page until you can see the "Save page" button.
  6. Click on the "Save page" button to save your changes.

More than one person may sign up to work on a given task. That way, those that sign up for a task can also communicate with each other on what they are doing.

Simple tasks

Potentially, a large number of volunteers in the community may feel unqualified to write a 'how to' article on a subject of interest, but they are available to do simple tasks that support the writing of articles. This is the place to list and/or volunteer for those tasks!  If you're a writer, here's where you can get some help. If you're a volunteer or community member, here's where you can give some!

Add links from topics and counties to their corresponding wiki pages. This will help users and leaders keep tabs on progress as the Germany Barn Raising unfolds.      
Add Germany News & Events to the Portal page The German genealogical community needs volunteers to find genealogical news and events that relate to Germany and link to them from the News and Events section of the Germany Portal. For ideas on where to find news items, see Finding Genealogy News and Events within the United States.

 

  
Add to the Did You Know section of the Germany Portal page. The Did You Know section of the Germany Portal is meant to lead users to the best, latest wiki articles and Web sites for England research. This list changes continually like the Did You Know section on WikiPedia's home page.    
Link to data sets in record search. Go here for a description of the project.


Link from Germany pages to the major data sites and online databases



Link wiki to digitized books in the BYU Family History Archive.
Go here for a description of the project.


Copy and paste record content bullet lists from SourceGuide
RG and SG contain bullet lists which mention the types of information that can be gleaned from each type of U.S. records. Example: The What you are looking for section of the Research Guidance page "Federal Population Schedule 1820-1920."


Need someone to act as German events reporter (also have him/her do the Did You Know section of the Germany Portal)
To help authors do this task more easily, Fran Jensen created Finding Genealogy News and Events within the United States. This can also apply to other countries like Germany
