Next week, the featured example profiles in the Connection Finder will be military heroes in honor of Armistice Day (also referred to as Remembrance Day and Veterans Day). Our featured profile will be the first woman to be named a Major Superintendent in the US Army, Col. Julia Stimson.
We're looking for profiles of people who were military heroes from around the world. Here are a few ideas of what we're looking for and some we're getting started on:
Can you help with these profiles, or expand their families? Adding relatives in any direction helps with connections. Every missing relative you add will make our connections to them closer.
Who else should we feature? Do they need a profile?
All profiles we feature need a good biography and a connection to the big tree. We also want each one to have an image, and the image needs to have proper source attribution explaining why it's in the public domain or why we have the right to display it.
We can't feature everyone mentioned (we only have room for eight per week), but if we don't feature a profile you work on, we may use it sometime in the future. And, of course, all contributions help improve our shared tree.
We'll make a final decision on which ones to feature early next week.
Please reply here with what you're working on so that we don't duplicate our efforts. Thank you!
