John, thank you for merging the two Atkinsons, good job! I ask wiki to show a relation, as I knew we are related through the Mooneyham/Atkinson/ Wingate line, but they came up with we are 16th cousins related on my mother's side, too! I guess we are double cousins, unless I'm mixed up! I sent you a private message..Kathy Wingate

Hi John,

Your Watchlist has 39434 profiles. This is very large. Our systems are designed to handle 5,000. Contributing to more than 5,000 profiles is great (the community thanks you for it!) but don't feel you have to keep so many on your Watchlist. Despite the terminology, there is no shame in "orphaning" Open profiles. :-) This invites others to share responsibility. Since you have more than 10,000, Bulk Trusted List changes tool may not work for you. If so, please contact [email address removed] for help reducing your Watchlist. Also, you may want to spend some time on the unsourced profiles that you manage.

Right you are, John! Clara nee Giles was my great aunt--I didn't realize she lived until 1991.

Thank you, Tim Giles

hey John, you thanked me for connecting Mary Elizabeth Oxner Counts to Conrad & Barbara Benger Ochsner but I am not sure that is a good connection. I have some census info that I will dig up to see if CONRAD & BARBARA OCHSNER had a child named Mary Elizabeth. I will leave it as is & I'll let you know :)

Thank you for all your work on the Singleton family of Sumter, SC. I really enjoy seeing this family tree grow and sharing it. I'm always looking for photos to add because they add so much to a person's profile.

Thanks, Russell Singleton

Hi john,

My name is Albert Bruns. I believe that Hiram logan who is supposed to be the half brother of my great great grandfather george william logan is not part of that family. This branch has been thoroughly researched and tested.If one of Hiram’s male Logan descendants has been test for y dna we could clear this up quickly. His birthdate seems to indicate that his father was 11 years old at Hiram’s birth. Let me know what you think. In at least one source it says he was born iin Ireland which doesn’t make sense.

Hi! My name is Candace Engman. I ‘accidentally’ fell upon this site & started viewing a list of ‘Engman’s’ & I noticed my Great Grandfather’s name in the list. So I clicked on it & sure enough, I knew it was him because of the info attached to his name…

Claus is my Great Grandfather! My Grandfather is Claus’ son Herald Engman…. My father is Darrell Wayne Engman. PLEASE EMAIL ME!! Also, I am trying to reach, John Britton Boney, who I saw was the Manager of my Great Grandfather’s info on this website. Thanks!!

Hi! I created a profile for David Sloan's father Robert (I couldn't resist - it was the easiest way to add the sources for him). It is now an orphaned profile, if you were interested in adopting it...

Cheers, Liz

John, I had already created a new profile for Margaret Newbold. We need to merge Newbold-933 and Newbold-932 now. Thanks, Mary

Hello John

I am managing a name study here on Wikitree for the Britton surname. My particular interest is for those originally from Fermanagh, Ireland.

Here’s the name study page - Brittton Name Study Category Page. As you add ancestors to Wikitree please add the relevant category so they appear on these pages too!

If you have DNA tested and your Britton ancestors came from Ireland we would love you to join us at FTDNA in our ‘Brittons of Ireland’ project. Even if you have tested at another DNA site, its free to transfer your data to FTDNA! I hope you join us! Brittons of Ireland - DNA project support page

Hi John, Since you knew these people at one time, would you like me to transfer the children of STA and Roxie to you? I would be appreciative if you can improve them. Most of my work has been on the parental generations and prior. Just send me "trusted list" requests for each child you wish and I'll accept it and get it transferred to you.  ??? Hope this is acceptable and thanks for sharing!
