Hi Dale, I just wanted to say "Congratulations" on becoming one of the newest Blue Badged "Generous Genealogist". Thank you for adopting various profiles created a few years back. Also what an awesome job you did on your profile and tags!
Thank you for self-certifying for the Pre-1700 badge! Participation in a Pre-1700 Project is strongly encouraged for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles. Collaboration is essential because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants.
It looks like England Project would be a good fit with the tag you entered. Adding the tag England will help you get updates about activity for that project.
Do you have any questions? Let me know. I'm happy to help! :-)
Hi Dale, I just wanted to say "Congratulations" on becoming one of the newest Red Badged "Generous Genealogist", You also did a great job on your tags and profile.
