WikiProject: Wikipedians for Local History


Anyone who is interested in contributing, please sign up on the members page.

This is a Wikipedia:WikiProject to co-ordinate the efforts of people interested in local history, biography of faintly notable people, and genealogy.  Editors using claims of non-notability or non-verifiability or lack of reliable sources, tend to zealously cause pages of local historical interest to get deleted.  This project was started on July 20, 2006 to combat that.

Too often old editors attempt to bamboozle new editors by redefining notability as they want.  Notability is a *guideline* only.  It is not consensus.  In particular note this entry under the notability of people:
  • Persons achieving renown or notoriety for their involvement in newsworthy events
