If you are happy with the team you’re on or if you’d like to make a change. It is now required that all members with an Ireland project badge work on at least one of the project’s team(s), so if you’ve not yet signed up please do so in your reply to this check-in.

  • What you think the project is doing well, and what (if any) changes you would like to see us make? Are there any teams you would like to become more active in?
  • Would you be interested in helping to work on an Ireland Project newsletter?
  • Please give us some feedback on the use of google group and discord. Do you use one or both of these? If you don’t use either of them, what is the best way for us to ensure you receive project communications? If you would like to join us on either one, just let us know in your response and we will get you signed up.

Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. If we don’t hear from you within two weeks, we will assume you are no longer interested in participating in the Ireland Project, and your badge will be removed.

Hi Billie!

It's time for our annual Scotland Project check-in!

This year we are hoping to learn what our membership would like to accomplish over the next 12 months. In case you aren't aware, this year is WikiTree's ""Year of Connections"" and the Project's leadership would like to contribute to this in as many ways as possible.

We would appreciate it if you would share your thoughts and ideas with us on how we can accomplish this goal. We would also appreciate it if you would provide some feedback on our existing goals, including:

  • If you have not yet signed up to help on one of the project's teams, which team(s) would you be interested in joining?
  • How often should we provide a Project Newsletter?
  • Have you participated in the Tartan Trail? If not, is this something you'd be interested in doing?
  • Do you have a question(s) that we could add to a Frequently Asked Questions page?
  • Any suggestions or ideas you have on ways to improve the Scotland Project in general

We continue to communicate with our Project members via Google Group (official) and Discord (unofficial), as well as G2G. You may also reach out to any of the Project leaders via WikiTree's internal messaging system at any time.

Thank you for all you do to help the Scotland Project become a knowledge hub for Scottish genealogical research! We wish you all the best in 2022!

Re: Margaret Alkire Life

No I am not related to her. She is an in-law to the fellow who lived in my house 1919 - 1940, https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Hardman-1108. Hardman was my grandfather's best friend, and after he died, my grandparents bought his farm from his estate, thus I live in his house. My surviving relatives had all kinds of stories about Hardman. So I did my best to see if any were true. Turns out most weren't. I also filled in his family tree as a winter project a couple of years ago. I really don't know anything more than already written about the Alkires. Good luck -Jon

Hi Billie,

We're sad to inform you that the Black Sheep Project is being dissolved. All BSP's subprojects will be moved in pieces under the Notables Project as categories and perhaps as Teams, depending on interest. Witch Trials will become a subproject of Notables.

Your BSP project member badge will soon be removed. If you'd like to join the Notables project, please let one of us know and we'll get you a Notables badge.

Please email either of us if you have any questions and if you'd like to join the Notables project.

Greetings BIllie

This is in response to your G2G post about joining the Magna Carta Project, We would be happy to have you join us at one of the two membership levels we offer. The two levels are "Badged" and "Affiliate". While members at both levels participate in improving the profiles and lineages of Magna Carta surety barons and their descendants from Richardson documented "Gateway Ancestors" to their surety baron ancestors, the participation requirements differ between the two membership levels. The level you choose to participate at would depend on your interest, your experience, and amount of time you wish to devote to this interesting area of genealogy.

For more information. please take a look at the following project pages.

Once you decide on the level you want to participate at let me know and I will get you started.

Hello Billie,

My name is Sarah and I’m the Project Coordinator for the Scotland Project. As you may have heard, we have merged the Scottish Clans project into the Scotland Project. I am contacting you today to find out if you are interested in continuing with us under this new format. If you would like to go forward on the Scottish Clans Team, please reply and let me know which clans you have been working on or would like to work on. I look forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,

Sarah Mason, Scotland PC

Hi Billie

cannot find the parents of Sophorous or any spellings.

1880 census shows a S D Gross. with a wife Lavinia

  • "United States Census, 1880," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MW6N-TLZ : 16 July 2017), S D Gross, Pittsburgh, Allegheny, Pennsylvania, United States; citing enumeration district ED 104, sheet 118A, NARA microfilm publication T9 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.), FHL microfilm 1,255,091.

The Daniel Gross in FamilySearch.org seem to have died 1 year before your date of death plus they do not have children listed named Soupharous or any near spellings.

I rarely luse Ancestry.com.

Hi Billie.. Your question about Sophorous Gross. Your best source is the top source from Fold 3. It says

Branch=Army, Units= 18th Pennsylvania Cavalry, Company I

Be sure to type in Union Civil War (Union)

I am putting the sticker for you, if you do not mind.. Then you can see how it is done..

This is the page of directions: Civil War

PS It is best to read this link from your personal page.

Hi Billie,

I only made the category. We don’t make templates for individual states under each name Study. You are welcome to use the Callahan Name Study template under the Biography heading and include the category for Pennsylvania.

Thanks!
