The goal of this project is to ... Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • Make Profiles which include BIOGRAPHIES for the Nurses AND their families, as we find them
    • cancelled
  • ADD them to the Category: Nurses
  • add as many sources to the bio as possible
  • LINK them to their Ancestors and their Descendants if any
Right now this project just has one member,
  1. me. I am Carole Taylor.
  2. Hyla Jenks

WE have to put a HOLD on ours because there are others working on the same nurse sources, so we do not want to step on toes............... again.
