Thank you for showing up for Team Roses once again during turmoil for you! Here's wishing next year will be a bed of roses (no pun intended). It's always a delight to work beside you and clean up and grow our Tree. Together we cleaned up 17,685 errors. Nice work! <3
Thanks, Emma. Congrats to you too. You did an amazing number of corrections. At first I didn't see you in our team's tracking and was a bit concerned about you, but then you came out of nowhere and far surpassed us all (except Morgan).
I'm not a morning person so I've decided not to wake up early enough to be up when these thons start anymore. It just starts me off badly. However, that also means I work well into the night with no problem :-)
Hi again, Carolyn!

Thanks so very much for your participation in the spring Clean-a-thon! Every suggestion you cleared (over 700!) made our Tree that much better. The WikiTree community appreciates YOU!

Carolyn, you are just wonderful! Thanks for writing the biographies for those profiles I created. I was eventually going back to them, but falling down rabbit holes held me up. Hose bios you did were great! And I truly appreciate it!

Kind regards,

Pip Sheppard

posted by Pip Sheppard
Thanks, Pip. Glad you approve of them. I was a little hesitant to work on them when I realized they were only a few months old. I can do some more of them if you want, or leave them for you. I just found the Needs Biography profiles. I really enjoy fleshing them out, but I realize my writing style may not be everyone's cup of tea. Thank you for the positive response.
No, go right ahead! I’m just so glad those profiles have someone who knows how to write a real bio and not just a table of contents type bio. You are perfect!

Hi,

The Global Cemeteries Project is currently undergoing our member check-in and wanted to verify that you are still active and interested in being a member of the project. Are you currently assigned to or working with one of our Cemetery Teams? If not, is there a particular Team or area you are interested in participating with? I would be delighted to help you get setup in one or more of our collaborative teams!

We use Google Groups for internal project collaboration, so if you are not yet setup for access feel free to submit a join request and we will get that approved as quick as possible. We also ask that members check their follwed tags to make sure you are following the correct project tag (CEMETERIES) so you don't miss any disucssions in G2G.

Last, but not least, we would like to thank you for all of your contributions to WikiTree and let you konw that any ideas or suggestions for improvement you may have for the Global Cemeteries Project would greatly appreciated!

I look forward to hearing form you soon!

Hi, Steve. I have not been truly active except to add cemetery categories on profiles when I find them. I kind a got burned out doing cemeteries when I first started. I think I set up 8 or 9, took photos and uploaded to profiles I wrote on the deceased, etc. Now I am into data errors, sourcing and writing biographies.

Good luck to the cemetery teams and project members.

Thanks for checking in Carolyn! And a huge thank you for your amazing contributions to our goals!

I'll go ahead and remove the badge for now, but please feel free to join back up in the future if you are ready to work on more cemeteries!

Very interesting -- we have no paper trail, yet we share a whopping 76.6 cMs, according to Gedmatch. I see that your Luther Stewart has no known father -- Scott co. MS is right next door to Smith co. MS, where my grandfather's family was from. You match my close relative Lucy Scott (her grandfather is my great-grandfather) with 381 cMs! I have a feeling your Luther's biological father was a very close relative of ours...
