THANX, Richard - that's right up my alley.  I'll get to work on him.

I recently took on 3 other profiles, all of which already had a lot of info but needed "eye candy".  If you want to see them, they're Rowe-6635, Britt-1460, and Risner-247.

Question - I found birth certificate and 1900 census, both of which show his first name as Gordon and middle initial T, yet it appears from everything else that his name was Theodore Gordon Ellyson, not the reverse.  Should we change formal first name and middle name, then put Theodore Gordon in preferred first name or should we just explain it in the bio and not mess with the name data fields?

OK - I'm done.  I'll leave it to others to add categories, but please do *NOT* add templates that will automatically add in stickers - they will only ruin the profile if they just start at the top and march down the right side.

In the process, I created a space page for all the images.  Richard, if you send me your email address, I'll make you manager of it and remove myself.

Wow Gaile - GREAT timing. I just dropped in and added several categories to get things started. Probably more that could be added, but its a start.

Nice bio!
THANX, Scott.  While you're at it, could you please look at the image in the sources section - there are 4 frames in the one image.  The 2 left ones came from one place and the 2 right ones came from another place.  Note the identical information in the text pages from the different places, except for the name of the Bureau of Navigation Chief at the bottom.  Also note the very different penmanship - clearly they are 2 different documents, yet both claim to be the same one.  I don't know what to make of it!

"OUTSTANDING JOB" Gaile. This is one of the best profiles I have ever seen. I added a little thank you at the bottom of the profile and took myself off as manager to let people know that this is all your work. Notables Project WikiTree is the sole manager now. You could add them to your picture page if you would like.

Profile of the month people, please take a look at this one.
