Thank you for adding the stickers and tags to Janet Cowan Kennedy. I hope this will generate more information about her and her ancestry as she is a brick wall for our line. I am pretty new to Wikitree and have not yet attempted categories, which is my next goal. I appreciate your input!

Hi Malcolm, Thanks for your patience on the Ontario categories. I'm the Ontario Project coordinator and just recently joined the Categorization Project. You could ask Natalie, that project's leader, about U.S. categories. Cheers, Laurie

Hi! I saw your comment on Space:Flags. The image that you provided the link for is already available. It's the one marked Hong Kong (1876-1910) on this page. (The url for the image you posted had 1941 and 1945 in the name.)

Cheers, Liz
