Your project page has been added to the Trails and Wagon Trains project page under the heading Oregon Trail.
For tips, a wonderful example of how these pages can look can be seen on the page done for The Donner Party.
I would call your space page, The Great Emigration of 1843. It's already categorized under Oregon Trail, which is categorized under Trails and Wagon Trains, so the category hierarchy is all set up.
1000 profiles are quite a few to group together under one category. Usually, categories lose their usefulness after a few hundred, but in this case, you might find it helpful. If you would like your project to have it's own category, you can nestle Great Emigration of 1843 under Oregon Trail and use that on your profiles. Even though the title is a bit ambiguous, researchers will figure out it's significance quickly if you add a short definition at the top of the category page. You can create the category, or I can do it for you, if you like!
