George Jacob Donner

+7 votes
My great-great-great grandfather George Jacob Donner was a survivor of the Donner Party.  I just finished building out his biography.  I added him to "Trail and Wagon Trains" and the the "Donner Party" project.  I wanted to share with the Westward Ho project so they can be aware that I tagged him the the project boxes (I am a project member).

Thanks a lot, Carol!  Now I shall have to burn most of my 2,000 profiles.  Or maybe I need to find some famous people in my tree.

Carol, that is a wonderful, well-researched profile.  I drive over Donner summit twice a week, but not in the winter!!!  I know the area and monument well.
Thanks Jo!  I was lucky on this one due to the infamous "Donner Party" and the wealth of information that I had to use.  Many times there just isn't enough information on an ancestor to build upon.  I have not yet been to Donner Lake but it is on my bucket list.  Thanks for your reply and kind words.
The lake is heavenly.  Bring oxygen.

Caryl, you’ve created an excellent profile. It should be used as an example of others to follow, including me (especially me?). Great job.

I don't know about all that Pip.  You are very kind. Thanks!
Well, I just compare that profile you created and look at some of mine, and, well,  I've got my work cut out for me. Really, I’m not just blowing smoke. It was that good.
