Hello,

I just discovered this project today and am very excited to help contribute. I have recently written an article on Betsy Ross and am working on articles on Catherine Littlefield Greene, Susan Livingston Symms and Catherine Livingston Ridley. It's interesting that when researching these early American women, with the exception of Betsy Ross, that the only mention of these women in in articles about their husbands, fathers and children.

I'd like to add my research to this project to help others but where should I do that?

Welcome, Elizabeth! What a fabulous offer, please help!

The best way is to locate the profiles of those who interest you on Geni, add them to the project, and build better overviews (and family trees). For instance if someone is well known like Betsey Ross, there might be a Wikipedia copy & paste. We can archive that on the profile and build better Master Profiles.

We can also upload images and links to the "project" gallery. I find this particularly helpful for several people who might be associated; a document stored in the project can be "tagged" to any profile as a source, and to enrich it as a multi media, multi dimensional experience.

Now specifically to upload documents to the project repository, it works very much the same way as on profiles. Here's a walkthrough:

Go to http://www.geni.com/projects/Early-American-Heroines/1234
Select Photos & Documents http://www.geni.com/projects/Early-American-Heroines/media/1234
Select Add Documents (plus sign link)

This opens up the document upload dialogue for the project

http://www.geni.com/documents/upload/project-1234

4 tabs - I usually use the 3rd one, Enter the web address (http://www ...)

This takes a "snapshot" of the internet page and saves it on the Geni server

I've also sent you a request to collaborate on the project, which gives you edit rights to the project overview, and the ability to request adding a profile to the project. If there are any difficulties adding a profile post the link and a curator can do it for you.

By the way, I just did a path search for you, Erica and turns out, you are my 11th cousin once removed =)
