Hi James,

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,


Leader, Global Cemeteries

James, could you please address the question I posted on Heromansen-1?

Hi James, you posted on Mary Ester (Unknown?) Applegate's profile a while back. She's attached as a daughter of Hendrick Coleman. I'm not seeing any records for that relationship. She is not in his will. Do you have any records for her being a Coleman? Thank you!

I removed the NNS project from that Speck profile. It showed her as the wife of a Settler, but with no sources or details. Good catch!

Thank you James for helping to clean up my family tree by proposing a merge. I really appreciate it. I have had several errors corrected by the great group of volunteers here at wikitree which is what makes this site as good as it is and a pleasure to be a part of.

Hi, James --

You're welcome, and the removal of the Unsourced template was just an oversight on my part. It's gone now. :-)

Thanks for the note!

HI James, so sorry I didn't put it in my note on what I updated and why. My bad.

That link doesn't appear to work any longer, Since they had adequate sources otherwise it slipped my mind to add in the comments.

Hi, James. Thanks for proposing the merge of Blançon-1 and Blanchan-3. Merges like that one sometimes get held up while waiting for a determination of the appropriate LNAB (which might even be another variant spelling). If you have the time, you could expedite the process by looking up her church records (baptism, marriage, and her children's baptisms; since she was in Kingston, they should not be hard to find) and documenting the text of the records in the profile. The LNAB is the father's last name from her baptism record, if that name is not a patronymic, but if the last name there is a patronymic, then the LNAB is the last name recorded for her in the earliest record that gives her a last name of her own. Church records should also show whether she ever used her husband's last name.
