I know that there is a Mayflower Descendants group, and assume they are using some sort of category to flag at least Mayflower passengers. Is there a similar category to flag those who came over in the subsequent "Great Migration" to New England?  (I paged through the list of categories through "G" and didn't see one.)

Here's how WeRelate handles that time period and category:

Since I'm working on a lot of those individuals, I'd like to be using the appropriate category. Thanks.

Is there a way to search for categories other than scrolling and paging through the long list at http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:Categories ?

Thanks again!

I don't know if there's a Great Migration category; I wasn't able to find one either, so probably not. Feel free to create one! :) Just go to the URL you'd like the category to have, ie. http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Great Migration and edit the page. I imagine it would go in http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Immigration or one of its subcategories.

The easiest way to find a category is to browse the hierarchy: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Categories shows the top-level categories and a few of their subcategories. From there you can drill down to what you're looking for. Currently, some areas are better organised than others. Project:Categorization is working on that. We've done some great stuff with the regional categories.
