Hi! I've been adding the Virginia Project as manager for profiles of Virginians that need a manager, even if they're pre-USA. But I think that maybe US Southern Colonies might want to reconsider & change their sticker back to a project box for this one... or if the Pocahontas project has a project box/project account maybe it would be best even if he was spouse of? NA Project? Or Virginia (or Southern Colonies) & NA projects?

Cheers, Liz

I concur that US Southern Colonies seems best suited to manage this profile of an immigrant settler.

Liz, newbie question, what would the benefit of have him under a project be?

Hi Rose!

His profile is PPP (project-protected profile), so it must be a project-managed profile. See details at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Project-Managed_Profiles  The guidelines were recently clarified that, basically, if a project box is displayed, then the corresponding project account must be a manager. And the requirement that a project box is displayed if a profile is PPP has been in place for a few years.

To use the Magna Carta Project as an example, the benefit is that all the project's members/affiliates receiving e-mails from the project's "Profile Alerts" google group help watch over the profiles that the project manages or monitors (either by having WikiTree-36 as manager or on the trusted list).

The benefits work both ways - the profile benefits from having a project looking after it, but WikiTree members also benefit because they can join the project and watch over dozens/hundreds/maybe more profiles without adding them to their watchlist. I try to keep my watchlist to under 2,000 (1,000 is better, but it's been a while) and also restricted to primarily lineal ancestors. But I keep an eye on thousands of project-managed profiles through the google groups tied to the project accounts.
Thanks for the answer,

The problem I have wiki tree help is trying to find the help. When you do a search, it takes you outside of wiki tree to google search. I wish there was a word/name search within wiki tree. For a newbie you don’t have the vocabulary yet to use the top-level index to find what you need.

The help index page has a search box (it does use Google, but is programmed to return just Help pages... after the Google-sponsored ad pages, of course), but I know what you mean. Pages listed at Category:Glossaries might help some.
