Hello Liz,  I'd like to work on the Biography of Sir William West (#14), and check it against the Project Checklist.  Is this OK?  Bud (Warder-49)
yeppers :D

Hello Liz,  Two solid days and 37 profile changes later, I think that the William West profile is ready for your review.  I've checked for duplicate profiles, and could not find any with any information that could help my William West profile.  Most were in terrible shape.  The suggestions did not include any for William West.  I did a major re-write of the Biography using only Richardson's Royal Ancestry, which was so complete, there was no need for any other Source.  I've got all the RA volumes, which was money well spent.  Let me know if I need do anything else.  THanks again for your help!!  Bud
I'm done.  Bud

Hello Liz,

I'd also like to review the profile of Thomas Lunsford II (Lunsford-515).  OK?

Great! Go for it!
Bud let me know he'd finished with this profile also (private message, 20 December).
Hello Liz,  Yes, I completed both West and Lunsford reviews.  You should also see progress soon on the Wodhull-44 problem on the Elkington MCSB trail.  My Edward III trail through Edward Baker didn't work, as there is not verifying written documentation available to be found.  I'm trying a y-dna hunch.  I love your Challenges.  Bud
