This half month’s Bio Builders Challenge theme is people who died in January. (See Anniversaries for those on your own Watchlist.) Beginning February 1st, the Bio Builders will be going back to a first of the month Challenge
Thank you for your support.
Here's our checklist:
You can see some ideas on where to find some of this information on the Biography Builders space page.
Use "comments" below to ask questions.
NOTE: Biography Builders will not show on the tracker. Please add a list to your answer.
Like it says in the subject: Last half of January. Then it says in the body of the question that it will be going back to the first of the month.
Just love this comment from a graduate of the England Project Orphan Trail training programme and though I would share with you all
"...crafting a biography with enough colour that someone will enjoy reading it and picking away at knots and tangles till I make some progress" "Quote by Stephen Trueblood 2019"

I'll see if I can get at least one done - starting with Annis Higley Hodges my 5GGrandmother who apparently didn't approve of the marriage of her son to my 4GGrandmother. Even she deserves a decent profile.
I'm in for this one.
If I forget to update this post at the end of the challenge, please check my challenge log: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Rosser-226%2C_Challenge_Log#Jan_2019
Scan-a-thon interrupted momentum this month but I managed a few:
I got wrapped up in other profiles, but finally found one that fits both the first part of this months challenge and this part of this months challenge.
Thomas Chandler Curtis, wrote bio, fixed citations to inline citations, added military and probate info & citations, etc.
