Google Community  

By the way, the leaders of this project are doing all the work in setting it up. Members only need add their profiles when they fit one of the sub-projects!  We will be available to help you with that if needed. We want this to be a fun project!

PJ has been updated for Oklahoma Land Rush, Native Americans, and Trails and Wagon Trains.

The sub-project images might need to be resized to make the template look better, but that should be an easy change for any leader to make.

Thank you Rob the template looks really good ,I have changed the size of some of the images,we are still trying to work out what images we would like for the template but you have made it really easy to change those Terry smiley

How about an immigrants to the west project? Kansas and Nebraska had Germans and Austrians and Hungarians move there to farm in the late 1800s.

Of course, that is the great thing about the Western Ho! Project. There is room for endless subprojects!

But let me make certain I understand because technically every one is an immigrant in this project. I think you mean first generation immigrants from other countries that landed by boat and then hit the trail, right?

I can think of several profiles immediately that fit that description! What would you like to call it? Any ideas?
Yes, my westerners were born in Europe. They took a train in the 1880s out to Kansas and built soddies for homes. Maybe call it Immigrant Pioneers?Thanks,Sharon Troy-204

I like that name! Immigrant Pioneers it is! We will get it up tomorrow.
