How do I join the Huguenot Migration Project?

+5 votes
I am very interested in the Huguenot migration and settlement. I live near Manikintowne (now Manakin), Virginia, and plan to use their library once it it open again (after the Covid Virus). My aunt was an active member of the Huguenot Society and I am planning to join ASAP. My Huguenot family names are Guerrant, Trabue, L'Orange, and DuTois, to name a few. I have traced them to France. I am very interest in this lineage and history. I would very much like to be a part of the project and assist in the research.  (I have had difficulty trying to post this question to the proper web site area.)

Thanks for your quick response, Marion. I had read that page and did add the tag, etc. What I think I missed was the comment section under Chet's invitation. I have now re-read it and responded. Thanks again.

Welcome fellow Huguenot descendant!

Your ability to research right there in a Huguenot stronghold will be much appreciated!

Thanks for joining us!

Looking forward to being part of the project. Thank you!
I am not sure if I am a member of the Huguenot Migration Project yet. I wrote a note under the request (above) with a request to join. Also, I put a "Huguenot" tag on my profile, typed the brackets above Biography, and tagged names of my Huguenot lineage. What else do I need to do? Maybe it takes a while to process. Will I get a reply and a badge? Thanks.
Hi Carol,

I saw your comment on the "Join the Huguenot Migration Project" G2G post.  It may be adequate to use the comment section to join the project, but the "Answer" button gets a better response, and is the formal way to join.  When you use "Answer" then that whole section is devoted to your answer!  Comments tend to start running together... But Chet may see your comment and assign your badge regardless!  Anyway, consider yourself a part of the project even before you get a badge!

I looked at your profile page, and I did see your Huguenot tag, (the green box that shows you are following Huguenot related posts), but I did not see your Huguenot Descendant sticker.  Edit your own profile to place it right under your Biography heading.  It should look like this:

== Biography ==

{{Huguenot Descendant}}

(Except without that much space between the == Biography == and the {{Huguenot Descendant}}.)

Be sure to holler if you have more questions!  (I knew I could say "holler" since you have roots in Virginia!)
Hello, Bartley, Thanks for your reply. Per your note, I have added {{Huguenot Descendant}} with names to my biography. I will post under the answer now. I appreciate your help. Carol
