This is a proposal for a new WMF sister project.
Status of the proposal
Statusunder discussion
Technical requirements
Development wiki

A place where individuals can submit their family trees and have them sewn into the whole. Ultimately creating a universal tree. In every family there is always that one genealogy buff who compiles the family tree for the whole family, it would be almost trivial to implement a project that would make all that valuable information public and easily accessible. Imagine the implications for disease research!

  • Symbol oppose vote oversat.svg Strong oppose Absolutely not... this is ridiculously unavailing. And i think that this project should not be an open proposal anymore, the content has not being updated since 2014 and the user seems to be uninterested Arep Ticous 06:42, 5 May 2020 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote oversat.svg Strong oppose Same reasons as above. There's already plenty of websites doing that, and i don't believe it fits into a Wikimedia project. --Monirec (talk) 17:39, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
