Hi Stanley. I see you have started up a new page for Baraboo the city. I am reworking my Sauk County page to link to it and I should really get on splitting a lot of content out. I already have a large section on Baraboo notables for example, and would I be able to move that information over to your page then?
posted by Steven Greenwood
Greetings Steven. The Sauk County page is brilliant work, an excellent body of information and an authoritative achievement. Your professional content rich research work and all its encompassing historical representations are exactly what Baraboo City place needs !.. I have additional "Baraboo Name Theories !" C'est Bon Magnifique! Mr. Greenwood !!

Dear Stanley,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing a check-in with project members. Please review the following and respond to let us know that you are content with your current team or if you would like to be more involved.

The Project operates in a team structure. There are currently three participant PIP Teams -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. There is also the Voyage Team which guides new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team.

There are currently three different Biography Teams - The Biography Team, the Abandoned Team, and the Popular Team.

You're currently identified as a member of the Biography Team. The Biography Team works on profiles from their watchlist and other profiles that interest them.

Are you happy with the Team you are on? If you are interested in working with a different Team, please let us know.

If you have not already done so, we invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. (You will need your Wiki ID for both). Neither is required; we also use the Profile_Improvement tag in G2G for Project announcements.

We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project meet its goals. We would like to hear about the successes you’ve had and would also appreciate any feedback you have to help improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or via private message to one of us.

Greetings Kay, Debi, Robin and PIP Team ! .. I'm happy to be apart of the Biography Teams. I will continue to edit, develop and create profiles from my watch list and other family trees utilizing a combination of Standard 2 and Standard 3 guidelines. I'll continue to actively participate in profile editing, clean up and sourcing for a variety of DB suggestions. I'll work as a Toddling Tortoise adding profiles during thons to level two & three standards. This year I'm learning to provide more narratives that are profile specific without cookie cutting. Thank you for your WikiTree service, leadership and superb commitments. C'est Bon Magnifique !

Good Day Mary Richardson .. Yes, I'm active on the Military & War Project Team. In 2023 I added profiles and sources for military veterans, added military categories to profiles and finished my ancestral veterans profiles for the Spanish American War and French and Indian War. I continue to update and add profiles and sources for my ancestors for WWI , WWII and Korean War. I completed several goals in 2023. Is there a sub project that you recommend that I could further help in 2024 ?

Thank you for your work. C'est Bon Magnifique WikiTreer !

Hi Stanley, I am upset with your recent so-called corrections on Cape Colony profiles. Please follow the WikiTree guidelines for using their conventions instead of ours. Now you have created unwanted corrections because you are working on profiles of projects which you have no knowledge of. Please fix the place names back. If you don't know, here are the place name you should be using https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:South_African_Roots/Sources2
posted by Louis Heyman
Hi Louis .. Hmmm ..Thank you for helping me learn something new. I followed the drop down menus for location names after finding A DB suggestion. The drop down menus are not always the best choice as I have experienced before with other locations. Again thank you for updating me and providing the project reference.

I'm happy to correct the profiles and or return them back to the format before my inaccurate use of the WikiTree drop down location menu.

I should have checked first !

Hi Louis .. I've corrected the locations on three profiles by returning them back to the original descriptions. Thank you for your collaboration. Lesson learned.

C'est Bon

P.S. The location tables and index found at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:South_African_Roots/Sources2 are Excellent ! and Wow ! much more complicated than can ever be represented in a quick drop menu ! th'xs ..

I should have check the project page First !

edited by Stanley Baraboo
Thank you for the corrections. The drop down list is an API from FamilySearch that WikiTree uses. Familysearch indexes records by country as such they have no incentive to use the correct place names as are required by WikiTree. I know, it doesn't make sence to me either.

Thanks so much for being part of the Toddlin' Tortoises Team for the April 2023 Source-a-Thon. Every source or citation verifying the information on a profile, helps make for a healthier Tree!

Thank You again Brian Zalewski .. I corrected the profiles and added the information as a comment on Andrew John DeBroux 's profile page. Nice work Brian !

P.S. another coincidence is that Andrew also has this daughter: Catherine DeBroux: BIRTH: 19 Dec 1921 Phlox, Langlade County, Wisconsin, USA: DEATH: 19 Dec 1921; Phlox, Langlade County, Wisconsin, USA. Same years ! I love genealogy ! ..

Per your updates to Mary DeBroux (1921-1921), I think you updated the wrong profile. The Mary you edited was the stillborn daughter of Leon & Mildred DeBroux, but the data you added was for a stillborn daughter of Andrew & Appolonia DeBroux from 1924. Surprisingly, they have the same name and birth date, but different years, so I can see how that could happen. Just letting you know. Thanks!

Thank You Mary Richardson for your leadership on numerous projects !

Working with the WikiTree Military and War Project team is a continuous pleasure and privilege for me . I remain busy adding categorizations, profiles and updating with current formats. My focus the last six months that continues for the next six months is to finish updating and adding new information to the veterans in my family tree. To date that has included family members of the United States, British, Canadian and French Military Wars. The American Wars alone spans eight wars. In my experience at WiKiTree; The team of Military and War Project are members who serve to represent the best quality of excellence and outmost dedication to genealogy and historical fortifications.

C'est Bon Magnifique !

Good Dayy !

Thank you Mary Richardson, SJ Baty and Betty (Skelton) Norman for your superb project leadership !

In concert with our 1776 project goals, I've continued to research and manage profiles of the American Revolution especially those French soldiers who served on American soil in the colonies, the French Militia who served with the Spanish forces from Louisiana and the French Militia from the Illinois Territory during the western campaigns. Initially, I've had success with the Barbeau family soldiers both in the colonies and the Louisiana theaters of action. This year, in addition I plan to research and connect profiles of French Canadians who were supportive and add more profiles of militia from the Prairie du Rocher, Illinois Territory. Historically the 1776 Project is one of my favorite researches.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve. Baraboo et Barbeau dit Boisdore

Greetings Laurie,

Thank you for your leadership and excellent work. This year for me continues to be a busy genealogy investment year in regard to Canadian families. I have the following Quebec and Ontario Canadian family tree goals; to update sources, improve profile formats, edit categorizations, and add family members while focusing on all the Barbeau family members. In addition I'll continue to work with Canadian military profiles, Canadian Metis profiles and other work you assign.

It is a privilege to be part of the Canadian Project Team.

Dear Gerald,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing its first annual check-in with our project members. We are in the process of transitioning to a team structure. There will be three participant PIP Teams to start -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. There is also the Voyage Team who guide new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team. Please let us know which team(s) you would like to participate in.

For those of you who joined the Project before the Voyage started in late 2018, we would like to invite you to consider a "fast track" Voyage, especially if you plan to join the Biography Team. If you’re interested, choose a profile that you have completed to the best of your ability and compare it to the Voyage Biography Standards. If you’re at Level 2 or better, include a link to the profile in your response to this check-in for a “fast track” review.

We would also like to invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. (When you request to join our GoogleGroup, please be sure to include your Wiki ID). You will find more information on the GoogleGroup.

We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project and WikiTree. The Project’s mission is to:

Make profiles beautiful! We clean up messy biography sections and sources, and try to set standards for attractive, useful, and well-written biographies, starting with those we manage.

We know you’re working on profiles *smile* We would like to hear about successes you’ve had toward the Project’s goals. We would also appreciate any feedback you might have to help us improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or privately via private message to either of us.

Further to a previous conversation re John Barbot 1655 to 1712. I went through the St Martin de Ré registers last year and the name was Barbot. The family tended to use Barbott in England. I was going to post a photo of his father's death entry, but I don't know how to post photos. The entry was interesting as it gave his father's age. This is the link to the registers. https://www.familysearch.org/search/image/index?owc=9WLY-W38%3A1067483304%2C1067487002%3Fcc%3D1582585

Hi, Gerald

The Ambassadors project has been reorganizing and is looking for those who have a membership at a genealogical society, to help in spreading the word about WikiTree.

We're working on ways to improve how WikiTree connects and interacts with genealogical and local history societies. This is the kind of thing we want to do:

  • Liaise with societies: set up your local society with a free-space page and some WikiTree materials as part of a package.
  • Use social media to promote what societies are offering on WikiTree.
  • Encourage bloggers to blog about societies and the resources available to them on WikiTree.

Are you interested in participating in some way? Do you have some ideas to share?
