Is there a sticker for homesteaders? [closed]

+9 votes

I have one documented homesteader Daniel Leaming and expect to have more in the future.  I found the homesteaders by county categories for Nebraska, but is there a sticker I could use, as well?

The template originally created as a Project Box for Homesteaders is now a sticker. See
Thanks so much Ellen!

Check out the Homesteaders Project, a sub-project of the Westward Ho! project.  smiley

Thank you, Ellen.  The template there looks like a project box, rather than a sticker.  Do you happen to know which it is?
I have one on my grandfathers profile - definitely a project box, going to check.....
Nope, not fixed so it is a project box - we can see if they will come up with a sticker or want to be co- managers on the profiles - I have held off adding more of my homesteader people as I do not want more suggestions

Thanks, Navarro. I just removed a project box (Westward Ho) from the profile to satisfy the "Suggestions" file, so I don't want to repeat the exercise.
Yeah I want to add the rest of my Homesteaders once they get a sticker, they have helpful sources on the project page though
Y'all could use the occupations sticker with the westward-ho image.
Thanks for the suggestion, Melanie, but I think I'll just have to wait - sigh - until someone comes up with a specific sticker for homesteaders.
Thanks again, Navarro.  I saw that great page, with all the sources - plus the link to BLM (which I'm always forgetting how to find).
You are sure welcome!  I forget too - it is facinating, my family had two sets of homesteads - North Dakota and Montana
Mine were in Nebraska and South Dakota - possibly also in Oregon and Washington, but I'm less certain of those.

I think I'll just have to wait - sigh - until someone comes up with a specific sticker for homesteaders.

Perhaps, then, if nobody else has, you should initiate the process for requesting one. 

That's certainly something to consider, Melanie.  I'll look into it.  Thanks for the suggestion.
