What code would I need to show the Nova Scotia flag on a Migrating Ancestor to Nova Scotia sticker? I experimented with Nova Scotia-1.png but that wasn't it.

Thank you, Cindy (Acadian Project co-leader)

There is a great biography of Alexander Keith. Keith-4498. He is listed as a NS Notable.
Would some kindly add Project Protection to Portia White as I just completed her biography under Notables. Thank you, Susan
Thank you for the heads up, Susan. I'm not sure Portia White's profile needs formal protection just yet, but I want to underline how much we appreciate your contributions!

Hi, Laurie, here's category that actually looks right, datewise, so I'm not sure why we are getting an error message.
posted by Cindy (Bourque) Cooper
The category starts in 1867 per the project guidelines. We have an error on An Acadian who was born in 1733 and the town actually started in 1713. Do you want to expand your timeframe or should I take it off the Lecrois-6 and a couple of others? Thanks, Cindy

Thanks for adding me to the team. Sorry it took so long to wake up. I just noticed that George Lawrence Price is on your list of Notable Nova Scotians without profiles. I created just prior to the anniversary of his death.

Edit: He's added to the Notable Nova Scotians category so I've removed him from this list.

Also is says that Nova Scotia Project oversees New Brunswick families too? Or is that a typo and it is seen in another sub project?

What category do we use for profiles that are pre confederation?
