 Presidents & Officers

Found under View > "Presidents, Politicians, & Other Officers", this page compiles lists of US Presidents, First Ladies, Vice Presidents, Cabinet members, Senators, Respresentatives, Supreme Court Justices, Ambassadors, Monarchs, and other office holders, for each showing their birth date, dates in office, birthplace, and optionally, personal and tombstone photos.

A sub-menu off of that links to similar pages for:
  • mayors
  • military officers
  • leaders of colleges, universities, and other organizations
  • listing people by educational institution.  Many are politicians as they have more documentation, but it is not limited to these.

Each of these pages has several different features:
  • Each person may customize the choices and order of the columns that appear here. See more information.
  • A drop-down list will show all of the different offices or roles for the selected page, showing the number of people found for that office or role.
  • If it has been defined, a link will take you to another website which will document the full list of people for the give list you see.  If it has not been defined, a place will offer you the chance to submit a webpage for this list.
  • A list of people who are identified for this office or role.  Clicking their name will take you to their page, which will also show the list of offices and roles they had.

To add a person to an office or role, add an event with type "office".

Political Appointees
When entering a political or judicial office for someone, there's an optional field for "Appointed By". This lists all Presidents and Governors. So for example, US Supreme Court justices are appointed by presidents, and some state supreme court justices are appointed by governors. In some states they are elected, not appointed. It could also apply to legislators, where a governor appoints someone to fill a vacated seat.

This shows up in 2 places, both in the "Associates" section of a person's page: On the appointees's page, there's a link to the person who appointed. On the page for the president or governor, there's a link "Political Appointees" which expands to show the full list, linking to each person. For some it can be long, and so this is collapsed by default.
