This may not be exactly what is being discussed, but there is a Community Trees project on the familysearch.org website.

 (S.E. MO) and was thinking I would incorporate a town genealogy. I realize this is a big undertaking but our community is much intertwined covering several towns and county lines. Of course this would be more skeletal initially but my ultimate result would be to have a recording of our black history.

I have considered doing something similar for the Norwegian families who settled in my southern Minnesota county but have never taken the plunge! I will be interested in seeing if others have done such a large genealogy and how they approached it.
