Hey y'all, I have started a McCune Surname Project to see if we can link the various McCune's on WikiTree together at some point. Volunteers are totally welcome to come help out as it is quite a large project. You do not have to have the McCune or variant name in your tree to help out, we need help with everything including sourcing, biography writing, and extending the present tree lines of the various families. Please help us if you can.

I have also volunteered to be the coordinator for the Price Surname Project If you are interested in the Price surname or have time to help out please hop on over and give us a hand.

As if I did not already have plenty to do I decided to take on another name study. Any help that anyone can give me would be much appreciated, thank you. By clicking on the name you can be taken to the McMurray Name Study.

Hi Paula, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a marvelous New Year.

The Annual US Civil War January Challenge is to connect US Civil War Soldiers for the January Connect-a-Thon. This year will be a twist of what I usually do. Instead of you choosing a "Surname Letter", you will be choosing from a block of soldiers whom I've already screened that show they have family to connect. Each soldier has a connection to one or more of his immediate family--parents, siblings, spouses, children, on their profile. Whether you work on one soldier or your whole block of soldiers, it's one step closer in our goal to connect each of our US Civil War Soldiers. The goal is to make sure all these soldiers are connected at least by one or two degrees. You can sign up now by clicking this link: US Civil War Sign-up Chart
