* WikiPick of the Day!*

Today's Pick is John Chapman, also known as Johnny Appleseed, who became an American legend while still alive due to his kind ways, his leadership in conservation, and the symbolic importance he gave to apples.  His WikiTree profile is also an outstanding example of how marvelous these profiles can be when members collaborate together!

WikiTree profile: Johnny Chapman

Interesting things about this profile:

I made the entire profile on an iPhone

Terri Rick proofed it and made it even better!

Terry Wright said "How about some red and green?"

I asked Eric Daly, "Can you do Red Delicious and Granny Smith Green?"

What do you think? Didn't he get it just right?

Collaborating on a WikiTree profile is so much fun!!

As I sang the Disney "Johnny Appleseed Grace" (quietly in Dunkin Donuts) just last week, I was thinking about him. I'm glad he's a wiki pick of the day. Thank you for bringing John Chapman to our attention.

PS: The accoustics, in the corner of the "sunroom" at the local DD, are great, so songs frequently come floating out of my mouth if I'm in there by myself.

Anne, thanks for sharing!  That 's so fun that you sing while at the local DD.
Anne,

I think every kid in America learned that song! I find myself singing it all the time too, more now than ever since I made the profile!
