Hi Nat! I made this workhouse category. Could you review it? I wasn't sure if I should append Oulton to the category name.

It's probably fine. The workhouse categories seem to be named in three different ways,

Hi Natalie, thanks for your work on the categories for my father, Lon West. Just curious, as I am not that familiar with the various WW2 designations, why was the category "Eighth Air Force, United States Army Air Forces, World War II" deleted? Is it because it is more broad and overlapping of "303rd Bombardment Group (Heavy), United States Army Air Forces, World War II" ?? And what is the significance of the addition of the word "Heavy" there ? Thank you! Jane West
posted by J. West
I added Heavy because that was the official designation and it is consistent with the rest of the categorization of those Bombardment groups. I deleted 8th AF because we use the lowest level unit category to group the profiles. 8th AF should be used for those on staff of the 8th AF or IF that is the only information known about the person's military service.

Thanks for asking! Nat

Is the a badge for a purple heart? I am working on two veterans in the same family who won the purple heart, one was posthum. They are Lucassen-179 and 171. I have added the American Flag image as I always do for veterans but can't remember how to get to the others since it's been so long. I am a member of the Military and War.

There is a medal sticker you can use for purple heart. Just add the additional { } around the template so there are two.:

{Medal|medal=Purple Heart|image=Kerr-2334-6.jpg} The category for purple heart will automatically be added to the profile.

Thanks for adding the ship category to the Craig profile. I've done a bit of research on the ship and while that class of steamship had major issues, it was still used for years. In particular the Penobscot lasted into non-military use. I have a feeling I could find more AA persons who served on her.

Hey Natalie, I wasn't sure about this related to the military and war project so I thought I would ask the question first. I've done a bunch of research on the Upper Canada rebellion in 1837/38 related to the Canadian service members in my family related to various sources.

It says Military and War manages the category, so do I need to be in the military and war project if I want to add servicemen to it? I added the first one, Philip VanKoughnet, as I was working on the biography today. But I have others :-)

Second question is, do all service members who fought in the war get tagged with the same category? I have ancestors who fought for Canada and ancestors who fought on the American side as well.

And last question is, is it possible to get one of those nifty service boxes for the rebellion, like the war of 1812 one? It seems like a fun way to call attention to a war service everyone forgets about.

Thanks! Concetta

No, you do not need to be a member of the project in order to add the category to profiles.

I am not familiar with the Upper Canada Rebellion but usually in a war there are categories for each "side" of the conflict. I'll take a look at the category this evening and see what I can add.

We do not have a sticker for that war, as far as I know. I will take a look though.

Hi Beryl, I'm not really sure what you are asking about. William Prescott has a category for the 7th already.

Nat

posted by Natalie (Durbin) Trott
It is one of the Regiments - the 7th MA that is needed in this list

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Battle_of_Bunker_Hill

Wm Prescott was the commander of the 7th and I added the category to his profile just yesterday so that he appears within the list of those who fought at Bunker Hill. Some of his men even died there.

https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=william+prescott%27s+regiment+at+bunker+hill ...Prescott was then chosen to lead 1,200 men onto the Charlestown peninsula and erect defenses on Bunker Hill on the night of June 16, 1775. ... Prescott received a colonel's commission, and his unit became the 7th Continental Regiment. The regiment saw service in the 1776 defense of New York.

posted by Beryl Meehan
I'm not touching it. The unit you added (7th) isn't Prescott's and I found this at wikipedia:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/7th_Continental_Regiment. So, something isn't right. I edited Precott's sticker to add 7th Continental, but then changed it back. Maybe you should talk to the 1776 project about the category.

Hi Natalie, I'm not a Durbin but found this interesting will of an unmarried Margaret Durbin who names a number of people who are haphazardly attached here and there on line. Before I try to shovel out the manure, do you have an opinion? Please have a look: https://www.wikitree.com/photo/jpg/Durbin-1046

It looks to me more likely that she is the sister of Thomas and Honor Erbaugh Durbin, so her sister Ann married a Hayden and her sister Honora (LNU?) had a daughter Honoria who married an Eck.

Hi Natalie,

Edit-Bit has changed the category name for 2 of my family from 'Seventh-day Adventist' to 'Seventh-Day Adventist'.

I am not sure why. As far as I can see, the 'Seventh-day' is the standard spelling, and certainly was at the time my relatives were involved. Looking at Google I found the description for 'Seventh Day Adventist Reform Movement: a small offshoot with an unknown number of members from the Seventh-day Adventist Church."

Do you know why the category name was changed? Thanks, Steve Thomas.

posted by Steve Thomas
edited by Steve Thomas
Changed it to fit the category name rules. It might be a moot point, as the denominations categories may be saying "bye bye" in the future, with the reorganizing of religion categories.

I moved it because DoD is a top level category and I was clearing those, as was explained in the explanation box. DoD is divided into subcategories and the profile should be categorized into an appropriate subcategory.

Valerie, 

Yes there are two categories, one is the "main" category for the Squadron, and one is the "War" category for those who served in that unit during WWII. It's a more precise category.  This will allow the unit to work with M&W stickers. 

The situation is "corrected" at this point in time and needs no further attention.  -N.

Dear Natalie,

thanks for editing Meszecsov-6 and Minda-6. I understood what you did there, but I'm not sure it fits to my intentions:

  • Meszecsov-6: I'm pretty convinced that it's the same person, but there is a bit of uncertainty. Now to me it more looks like "somebody mixed up two people, please split this profile"
  • Minda-6: Nice category, didn't know about it. My intention was to state, that the death currently is still unsourced, though.

She died in childbirth in January 1828 after just eighteen months of marriage. She is buried in the churchyard at the Little Pigeon Church, which today is in Lincoln State Park." Note: cited as Rev.
