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!

Hi WikiTreers!

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

  • 378 WikiTreers made 1,000 or more edits and additions in July. 2,370 made 100 or more. Of course, quality counts more than quantity. But quantity is easier to count. 🙂 Thanks to members like you, our shared tree is growing and improving rapidly.
  • Data Doctors Winner badgeChallenge of the Week: Neaten names. Data analysis has uncovered thousands of profiles with special characters or words in name fields that probably don’t belong there. Join our Data Doctor Challenge to investigate and correct as many as possible by Monday. The winner gets a badge and we all get a neater, cleaner tree.
  • Member of the Week: Ellen Smith, an insightful, generous genealogist who helps moderate our G2G forum. “It’s been wonderful to experience how collaborative genealogy in WikiTree makes all of us better genealogists,” she says in her blog interview. “Collaboration on our shared ancestors encourages us to share information and to hold each other to high standards.” Check your connection.
