Beginning with this Challenge, the Connectors WILL be using the Challenge Tracker. You can use an Answer or the Tracker for your connection, but not both for the same connection. So let's begin another month of connecting the unconnected across WikiTree. We'll get the project page updated soon with last month's tallies, but for now, it's time to start connecting!
Oct/Nov’s top connector was Heidi van Os de Man with 62 connections.
Thanks to all of you who participated the Oct/Nov Connectors Challenge. If you haven't checked out the Connectors Chat page, you should! There is a lot of chatter there about what everyone is working on.
Now on to the Connectors Challenge Rules:
See last month's challenge as an example. Ask questions in the comments section here. Thank you!

1) Got William Jencks [Jencks-63] in China List done done last night.
& created his mother Caroline (Baldwin) Jencks https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Baldwin-9509
& created her father Daniel Baldwin [https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Baldwin-9510
& linked him to his existing father Theophilus Baldwin III.
Bob it looks like there is an error in this ...
QUOTE> Oct/Nov’s top connector was G. Redmond with 91 connections.
My connections in the 90s was in Long September.
In Oct-Nov I only made connections in the 60s, so if someone had more than that, then they would be the winner for last month.
I have been going over ALL my merges to ensure they went through & I am currently working on a big connection for Nov-Dec :)
I liked this challenge & saw more such challenges on a connectors chat page that I found ... & I will try them out :)
But I couln't find where you wrote about my big connection. So could you please provide a link to where you wrote about it ? Thanks Carol :)
Here's the link to Connectors Chat, and here's the link to the Unconnected-by-Locations page.
I updated the main table on Connectors Chat, and the tables for Austria and Italy on the Locations page. There are plenty there to choose from if you feel like attempting another challenging connection.And if you succeed, then just update the end column with your name and date. The tables are maintained by Greg Slade, using information supplied by Aleš.
Happy to be here, Working on understanding all the steps. I'm in for the Nov/Dec Connectors Challenge.
Tracker in use for Sourcerers Challenge already, so looking forward to using it here. Right now starting with unconnected Bartlett 18cen,
I must say, this is Mind Expanding, tracking all those connections mentally.
Thank you for the great Connectors Challenge Rules write-up, it does help.
I was looking for Haakon VII of Norway who becamse the first King of Norway on 18 November 1905 when I found Charles Haakon UNKNOWN (1872 - 1957) - unconnected. I found it hard to believe that royalty was not connected, then I found Christian Frederik Carl Georg Valdemar Axel (Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg) of Norway (1872 - 1957), connected as I expected. I just finished merge suggestions for this family group, so I added one of them for this challenge.
I have a few connections to document, so I'm in again.
I've added a few profiles to the Balmer family who emigrated from England to Canada. Philip Balmer married Mary Elizabeth Barisdale in Ontario in 1882, and her parents were named as Robert and Margaret. I think Mary might be a sister of your Rebecca, but I can't find a record of her marriage to William Saunders, which should confirm this. Robert Barisdale died in 1871, (before the census was taken) and his wife Margaret is shown with their 5 daughters living in Toronto. I've found the marriage details for 4 of the daughters, but not your Rebecca. I really thought this was going to help you, and now it's come to a dead end. Can anyone else help here please?
I'm in for this month - more connections than I thought:
2. Got on the trusted list for Brigitte Bardot, connected her to husband Roger Vadim (see above) - Connected !
Manaud de Montesquiou and descendants: this may not count. This group used to be connected through the fictitious ancestry of Philibert Couillaud; now that's been fixed, the branch needed to be reconnected. From Manaud de Montesquiou to Marie de Montesquiou-Fezensac (his first connected descendant): added the 9 generations to bridge the gap. (all sourced) (REconnected !)
3. Gilles Hocquart; intendant of New France; (something good came out of reconnecting the Montesquious): From Jeanne Marie Hocquart (wife of Anne-Pierre de Montesquiou) to Jean Hyacinthe Hocquart (her father: Armorial d'Hozier, Gazette de France), to Jean Hyacinthe Hocquart (his father: death recorded by Chastellux; also his son's fichier Origine); to Gilles Hocquart (his son: baptism record and fichier Origine) - Connected !
4. Linked Jane Birkin to her husband composer John Barry - Connected !
I'm back! Made my first report connection of the month while importing data from my Gedcom.
