I see when I look at the ancestor list that only 5 of my many ancestors who were soldiers or patriots in the American Revolution have stickers. How can I get stickers for the rest?

Hi Martha, when you need help with something like a particular war, or other catagory, please place tags on your question, this helps to bring your question to those in the categories and projects that work in/on these things, so, the Amercan Revolution, is part of the Military and War Category, and is a project "The American Revolution" -1776 Revolutionary War- https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:1776

and I got here by going  to find at the top right side of the page, scroll down to  "projects" & click

then click

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Projects

then click

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Projects#Military_and_War

contact one of the project leaders for help with this, and read thru the requirements for the stickers, as there are source requirements necessary for them to meet "sticker level-identifier"

also when you create a question or post on G2g if you at the end add "tag" words, it will help bring in anyone on about any topic you may need help in, from Wars, to places, Dna, sources, etc.  scroll thru when you have time and look at different questions you will be able to see how the tags work.

hope this all helps, welcome to the tree

If you want a 1776 Sticker, just add it to the profiles that they should be on.

1776 Sticker Help Page.  1776 has recently been changed to 1776 Sticker, with only the Rank and Unit that the person served with.  Unit can also be Civil Service, etc, so review the page.  The unit will become the Category for the profile, so use the Category builder to create the required unit, if you can figure it out.  Rank is highest rank achieved.  All of the information from the person should be included in the biography. 

The sticker goes anywhere after the Biography header, either right after it or down in the Biography where you are discussing his Military service.
