Listing titles for historical figures

Is there a video somewhere that shows you how to list titles for characters in the 1632 universe? Like Gustavus Adolphus being the Emperor of the United States of Europe.

Cover Art - "1635: Music and Murder"

i don't suppose anybody would happen to now the source of the painting used for the cover of "1635: Music and Murder"?

I've tried my utmost find out what it is, to no avail.

It looks like one of a series of paintings in the "Vanitas" genre of the 16th & 17th centuries and beyond, but i can't find this specific one (it's not exactly a small genre - there are hundreds of paintings if this subject/genre).

Should there be a category for colleges?

Hello! I just created a page for the University of Jena when I realized that there wasn't a category for colleges, universities or other schools. Grantville High is listed under 1632 institutions, but what of schools that exist in real life (or up-time)? And the 1632 series mentions quite a few schools. Please let me know what you think.

Where's the nearest Freedom Arches?

I don't suppose anyone out there has kept track of the locations that the Freedom Arches has sprouted up? I'm looking for one as close to France as possible. Something in the back of my brain suggests that one may have actually opened in France, but I can't come up with a reference and that's a lot of reading to go back and look for it. :D

Bits and Pieces

Since I have some extra free time this month I'm going to spend some of it helping out on this Wiki. I've been on a big Eric Flint kick lately so I'm having a lot of with all things 1632. I'm going to focus mostly on places. I think the details on the Ring of Fire world outside of Europe could use a little fleshing out. Of course, our knowledge of those places is limited so I'll have to go slow on it. But I created an article on Cambodia which we saw in "All of God's Children in the Burning East" so I think that's a good start.

I'm considering making an article about Australia or Mexico next. Again, not really places touched on but I think giving wiki users more of an idea of what's going on in the wider world would help them understand eve…

Is This Gretchen Richter?

I have been making a serious effort to add pictures to the historical and paticularly fictional characters when I can honestly identify a specific person from others.

For example I was able to identify Anne Jefferson from the covers of the Grantville Gazette.

So a question came to mind when I was analyzing 1636: The Saxon Uprising's cover. On the cover there are three people; one guy when grey uniform, one brown haired women, and a clearly visible blond hair female that dosen't quite seem to match Anne Jefferon. In fact she seems to more fit the description of Gretchen Richter from 1632. So the question I have is, do any of you

think that this female is Gretchen Richter or someone else? I admit I haven't had time to read The Saxon Uprising s…
