Most of the profiles you have marked as "confirmed with DNA" do not have proper confirmation statements to support the claim of being confirmed.

You can find the requirements for DNA confirmation as well as examples here: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Confirmed_with_DNA

If you are unable to supply the required statements for DNA confirmation, please choose a parental relationship status other than "confirmed with DNA" for those profiles.

Thanks for your efforts.

John Kingman, a Coordinator with the DNA project.

We're 15th cousins through Richard Rich and as you look back a few steps, we're connected through John (Montagu) de Montagu KG, your 19th great grandfather. That makes 334 common ancestors with our know posted family profiles, so far.

Welcome, and thanks for joining the Magna Carta project as an affiliate.

Project affiliates are encouraged to join the Google Group - from that page, send a request to join with your WikiTree ID (so we know who it is).

Give me a holler if you have any questions, or you can post in G2G (Magna_Carta) or to the Google Group.

Hi James,

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 US History Project would be a good fit with the tag you entered. Adding the tag United_States_History will help you get updates about activity for that project.

Do you have any questions? Let me know. I'm happy to help! :-)

Regarding your comment, Boatman- 477 and Boatman -478 are the same, you are corrected, but we always merge into the lowest ID which is Boatman-197. Those merges should be done.

Boatman-450 and Briggs-6903 do not represent the same person because: James. Please do not propose merges with your own profile. Each person gets a profile. Jane (Boatman) English is not you; therefore, she should not be in a proposed merge with you. Cheers, Liz

Hi James!

Please see Help:Merging for information about merging profiles. It is only appropriate to merge duplicate profiles - that is, profiles that are intended to represent the same person. I have removed the merge you proposed for your profile and that of Jane Boatman.
