Thanks Gary for keeping me in check. I've been concentrating on getting as many names into WikiTree while I have the spare time. The auto-correct had picked up a previous (correct) entry post 1800s and auto completed the United Kingdom on hitting enter.

Thanks again

Hi Amy,

Thanks for checking in. I've been spending quite a bit of time working on my family tree adding relatives, sources and biographies which is a huge task that doesn't leave me much time to contribute to the Norfolk Team, but I'm happy there to contribute when I can.

All the best, Gary

Hi Gary,

On behalf of the England Leaders, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your contributions towards the project in the past six months as a Team Member for Norfolk. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.

Please respond to this message via e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,

As for deleting information from a profile because the source information is not perfect, just minimal but good enough, does not serve the aims of Wikitree. Add to, improve, but do not delete the work others do, I only have time for hundreds of entries a month not your thousands. Collaborate with other users, do not dictate to them or treat their contributions as invaluable. Dealing with other users in a disrespectful or condescending manner only serves to drive off previously keen participants in the Wikitree project. I hope that this info helps you to improve your interpersonal skills. Stephen

Hello Gary, thank you for taking the time to add a few extra sources to some of the profiles that I have been working on. The profiles that you have amended are some that I have not touched for a while. The quality of the information that I add has been improving as I gain experience, I have been working on Wikitree for less than three years now. The source information was not in the ‘one click and it takes you there’ form but still website name, person’s name, type of event, date and place should be enough for even the less experienced genealogist to find. That it was an open and free for all to use website is also a benefit. A source with lots of detail and a hyperlink to take you there is of only limited use if all that you can see at the end is a login request.

Hi Gary

We sent you a message about a week ago about the England Project but have not yet heard back from you. If we don't hear from you by this time next week we'll assume you no longer wish to be in the project.

Many thanks,

Susie, Gillian, Wendy and Amy

Hi Gary

On behalf of the England Project Leaders we're carrying out a check-in to see how all the members are doing and taking the opportunity to thank you for all your hard work over the past six months. We have been so impressed with the way everyone has rallied together and gone the extra mile to make this one of the most dedicated, productive and friendly communities on WikiTree. What are you enjoying most about being in the project? What would you like to see improved or changed? Would you like to continue in the project moving forwards?

We're looking forward to hearing back from you,

Susie, Gillian, Wendy and Amy
