Adding non-related profiles to Geni.com using US Census-based data to grow our Big Tree

« Back to Projects Dashboard

In the project entitled "Let's build up the Jewish Genealogy Portal" <http://www.geni.com/discussions/115323?msg=863235>, we have been discussing the possibility of adding Jewish profiles, in mass, by using US census data. There are a number of issues that may have to be overcome to utilize this data in the most efficient way.

Since this is a general problem, not at all restricted to Jewish folks, I've decided to open up this as a separate project to discuss the issues and come up with a generic solution that may be applied to many situations.
