As a member of the US Black Heritage project I have added the African-American Sticker. To honor the heritage of the African American family, please use the African-American Sticker. This may help to differentiate between people of the same name who live in the same location. This sticker is for profiles of people who lived in the USA only. This sticker is the only standard way for the US Black Heritage Project to count the number of project profiles, so is very important to tracking our progress. We ask that you use it on all profiles for Black Americans.

In addition I have made some format changes to comply with WikiTree Standards. All profiles must have a Biography section and a Sources section.

If you have questions or need assistance, please feel free to reach out to the US Black Heritage Project via the G2G Forum. We will be happy to help! Regards, Denise Jarrett
