Should all entries in The Great Migration Begins be so noted?

I've just found this book on Ancestry, and find that I have more than a few connections.  Should I tag each person in the book with the Category?  I don't believe we should use HSA for each, only the major players.

Got it, just the emigrants themselves.

One could argue that the GM immigrants should be HSA, especially those with descendants to protect them from bing merged out-- only after discovering the lowest-numbered one of course.

I also read this question to be asking if those who have an entry in any of the Great Migration series (by Robert Charles Anderson) should have a category. They do this over at WeRelate. See Great Migration Study Project

Currently there are two categories related to these immigrants, although WeRelate does not distinguish them for purposes of the project above.

1. Mayflower (Pilgrim separatists); wikitree Categories here include:

    a. Mayflower (passengers only)

    b. Mayflower_Project (passengers and their descendants for many generations)

2. Puritan Great Migration (Puritans who fled or were kicked out of England before the English Civil War); wikitree category Puritan_Great_Migration

AND there are also currently two series by RCA:

1. Great Migration BEGINS (1620-1633) - includes both Mayflower Pilgrims and the later Puritans

2. Great Migration (1634-1635) - mostly Puritans (as the Pilgrim emigration had ended by this time) and other non-aligned emigrants

So... how best should we be categorizing the appropriate profile pages?

Just a quick note: The categories for the Mayflower are Category:Mayflower Passengers and Category:Mayflower Families. Category:Mayflower Project is for the people working on the Mayflower Project.
