Hi Gary

Thanks for your message about Sarah Bays. I’m not locked into either of them, 1749 or 1750. I’m happy to revisit the sources. Did you have any particular reason for favouring one over the other? Rory

Hi Gary

Just checking in to see if you are ok :)

It has been 3 weeks since I posted a message on your profile and I have not had any feedback from you.

If I don't hear from you by the weekend, I will presume you no longer wish to be involved in the England Project.

I will then go ahead and remove you from the project and remove the badge.

Hope to hear from you soon :)

Hi Gary,

Congratulations on being Pre-1700 certified!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, coordination is essential. Thanks for joining the ENGLAND Project.
