What is the best way to commemorate victims of 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic?
Is adding profiles to the following category remains the preferred way?
The category is not extensive for a relatively recent genealogical event that claimed about as many victims as WWII.
For example, exactly 100 years ago on September 27, 1918 city of Boston barred all public gatherings for the following ten days in an effort to prevent further spread of the Flu.
I keep coming across people and whole families who perished in this pandemic. Whole family trees got mutilated or seized to exist by this event.
My father had an uncle who died as a toddler in Copenhagen in 1918 from this Flu. This might have been the reason why the grandparents of my dad then returned back to Latvia instead of trying to persevere and make it to America. Decades later that decision costs many lives in my family due to Holocaust. But on another hand it led to my existence.
So, is categorization still the best way to get such affected profiles organized? Perhaps the category just needs some clean up and review, or is there a better way now (tags, something else)?
