Free to good home: Lieutenant Governors of British Columbia [closed]

It might be argued that I'm not the most disciplined genealogist on the planet. Come to think of it, I'm probably not the most disciplined genealogist on my block. When I want a break from beating my head against the wall with my own family, or the Sourcerers Challenge or the Connectors Challenge, I'm prone to have these little attacks of "Oh. Here's an interesting person or group. I should work up profiles for them!" But I've already got irons in too many fires, so I can't really do justice to the people I put up. Fortunately, every once in a while, I clue into that, and look for people who might be interested in those same people, and might do them justice.

Most recently, I realised that almost none of BC's Lieutenant Governors had profiles on WikiTree, so I've been going through and adding succession boxes to those who do have profiles, and adding very simple profiles for those who don't. But these people need to be under the watchful eye of some project or other. Presumably Canadian History, or possibly a sub-project on BC History, or possibly Canadian Politics or something.

So if anyone is looking for a project to take on, here are the people for whom I created profiles. (There are other Lieutenant Governors whose profiles are unowned, so you could adopt them too if you want, but these are the profiles I need to unload from my watchlist. And, yes, there are a bunch more to do. I'm only up to 1914.)

Several of the Canadian provinces have sub-projects to the Canadian History Project (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Manitoba, Alberta) ... I think that these profiles need to organized into a similar sub-project for British Columbia.  To that end, I'll do some front end creation work to get that sub-project started ... give me a couple of days :)

Or a bit longer ... forgot that I need a leader to create the project first ... duh!
Okay, I've linked to a couple more existing profiles, and added Nichol-713, which brings us up to 1926.
