What is allowed in the Portrait field?
If taken by the sole merit of the term "Portrait", only pictures or artist made portraits should be posted, and nothing else.
That not being the case, as everything under the sun seems to be posted in the portrait field, is there any consensus what is best in that field?
As an example, if I have a photograph of my ancestor, I definitely will plug that in. Lacking that, if I can next find a contemporary made portrait by a paint artist, I'll go with that. Then next is a sculpture/bust of the person (contemporary). Lacking these, if I can find a picture of their headstone, this is my next choice. Lacking all theses, I'll next go with photo of their name from some document that mentions them. Then lacking all these, I'll plug in a map for where they came from.
I cannot find any guidiance of any preferential order on the FS site.
Many of the portraits I see out there are not relevant to genealogy. Flowers, buildings, maps and flags. Or much lesser degree than headstones and documents.
Are there any “portrait” substitutes that I missed? Any consensus of an order of genealogical presidence for them?
