Hi WikiTreers!

Here are a few things happening around the community this week:

And in other news:

  • In case you missed it, Cindy Lesure was invited and accepted a Leadership role this month. Along with Carole Partridge, Debi Hoag, and Project Coordinator Vicky Majewsky, Cindy is part of what we’ve been calling the “Fantastic Four” who are currently managing the various moving parts of our “new member” process, i.e., Greeters and Messengers. They’re doing a great job of staying on top of everything that needs to happen to welcome our guests and new members and make sure their questions and concerns are answered.

  • The Switzerland Project has now become a full-fledged project with Keith Hathaway and Paula Johnson leading with Mark Geesey acting as Project Coordinator.

  • Leader Jackie Girouard is working on the Louisiana Project and doing a bit of reorganizing with administrative support from Liz Shifflett. Jackie’s goal is to make the Louisiana Project structure look a bit more like the structure of other state projects.

  • Guy Constantineau and Isabelle Rassinot are working together to translate key portions of WikiTree to French, and they are presenting it in a new portal: Portail Francophone.

Onward and upward!

Every week you can find two new connections in our Connection Finder.

Each Tuesday, we showcase a WikiTreer in a Meet our Members feature on our blog and they also get spotlighted in the Connection Finder for that week.

This week it’s Jeanie Roberts.

Jeanie joined our community in May of 2014.  She’s a great asset to our Puritan Great Migration project and is the Project Coordinator for our Native Americans project.” She admires her Puritan ancestors for “their bravery in crossing a very large ocean in a very small boat for a destination for which they knew very little, to create a new life for themselves and their children.” Check your connection.

We also highlight what we call an Example Profile of the Week. These profiles are top-notch and meet the styles and standards criteria that the community has agreed upon. The notable whose profile is used as an example is also featured in the Connection Finder for that week.

Spotlighted this week is Captain Myles Standish (ca. 1584-1656), military leader of the Plymouth Colony, from the Mayflower Project.  See how you are connected.

And of course you can always see your connection to our current connection anchors, Queen Elizabeth II and AJ Jacobs.

Follow the tag connection_finder for weekly updates on connections.
