Welcome to WikiProject Franco-Americans. Several Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of Franco-Americans and the organization of information and articles on this topic. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.


  • Provide guidance to Wikipedians wishing to improve articles related to Franco-Americans.
  • Help coordinate efforts aiming to improve and augment the coverage of Franco-American topics.
  • Maintain a sensible categorization of Wikipedia articles related to Franco-Americans.
  • Maintain the Portal:Franco-Americans


  • This project will encompass all aspects of the experience of Franco-Americans in the United States, including culture, history, politics, business, sports, etc. It will cover everything from the first Huguenot refugees of the 17th century to the most recent immigrants from everywhere within the French-speaking world.
