Communication Preferences: I am interested in communicating private message with cousins and anyone else with an interest in genealogy. Here is my family tree.
I love making connections on WikiTree, so you may find me working on your family line. I probably am not related, but doing some random acts of kindness in connecting your branch to the big tree!

I am often working on administrative tasks, as part of my Team role. If you have a question, please ask! I am happy to explain what's happening or help out.

In the time I have left, I am trying to figure out more about my elusive Brown family. We don't connect to any other Browns. There is family lore regarding a name change, but everything I've found for sources seems to indicate it's just that-lore. I'll keep trying, and maybe one of these days I'll find my English and Scottish cousins :-)

Weekends are family time at our house, so I may be late in replying Fri-Sun.

Received your comment about Cooper-3555 and Cooper-178,

I'll have to investigate (if and when I find some free time for that). I'm uncertain as to what triggered your message.

I don't immediately recognize the surname Cooper and was not aware (or do not remember) that I was the profile manager for anyone surnamed Cooper.

But it's not impossible. I had a lot of "cousins" that I know very little about, from way back in the 1800s.

PS -- I tried to send this as a private message, but could not get that screen to scoll down toe a Send of Post "button" -- possible incompatibility between WikiTree and the FIreFox browser I'm using.

Dear Abby,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing a check-in with project members. Please review the following and let us know if you are content where we have placed you or would like to be more involved.

The Project operates in a team structure. There are currently three participant PIP Teams -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. There is also the Voyage Team which guides new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team.

You’re currently identified as a member of the Unknowns Team. Are you working on a particular group of unknowns? Are you happy with the Team you are on? If you are interested in working with a different Team, please let us know.

If you have not already done so, we invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. (You will need your Wiki ID for both). Neither is required; we also use the Profile_Improvement tag in G2G for Project announcements.

We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project meet its goals. We would like to hear about the successes you’ve had and would also appreciate any feedback you have to help improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or via private message to one of us.

Sincerely, Debi Hoag and Kay Knight, Co-Leaders, Profile Improvement Project Robin Shaules, Project Coordinator, Profile Improvement Project

Hi Kay,

I'm the Team liaison for the Unknowns project; I do the deleting when the free-space page indicates they need to happen. I'm perfectly content to remain there as such.

Cheers, Abby

Thank you and thank you for all the help. I made a note that you are the liaison.

Hi Abby,

I was wondering what you thought about creating a PGM Featured Connections category. We only have 4 right now, but it would be nice to be represented on the page: See

But you manage those categories so I understand if maybe you want to limit them.

posted by M Cole
It's a great idea, M! Go ahead and make it happen. Thank you!

Why did you remove me as manager for Burton-15660?

See the living Notables guidelines here:

Specifically; Trusted List access As Project-Protected Profiles, Living Notables are managed by Project Accounts.

Project Accounts manage Living Notable Profiles on behalf of the notable person. The person's profile may contain information or family connections that are not public. Therefore, Trusted List access is generally limited to immediate family members, which we identify for these purposes as a spouse, child, grandchild, parent, grandparent, sibling, niece, nephew, aunt, uncle, or 1st cousin,

If a person's family relationship to a notable is not well-established through public sources, we cannot allow Trusted List access.

In addition to the Project Account, projects may add individual project members to the Trusted List or as co-managers. These project members act on behalf of the project. This practice is at the discretion of the project leaders.

Hi Abby

It's time for a One Name Studies Project check-in!

Could you please advise me which One Name Studies you're still actively coordinating, i.e. maintaining the main study page and associated research pages, and replying to queries/comments from members.

You can respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. I look forward to hearing from you!

If I don’t receive your response within the next three weeks, I’ll assume that your interests have changed or you are no longer able to coordinate any One Name Studies, and you'll be removed from the project.

Hi Jacqueline,

I work on Brown and Kleinhampl name studies, as I'm able.

Thanks! Abby

Thank you for your contributions to our 5th place finish in the 2023 Source-a-thon! We couldn't have done it without your participation. I hope to see you back for the next 'thon"!
Hi Abby;

I saw that you updated the biography for my great grandfather, Friedrich Eichhorn. You list his full name as Alfred Friedrich Franz and give his age as about 20 years when he married Annette Lukowitsch in 1902. Can I ask, what is the source of this information?

Mike Eichhorn

posted by Mike Eichhorn
Hi Mike,

All I updated was the category he was listed in due to his inclusion in one of our Connection Features. You'll have to ask some of the others who worked on his profile for their sources, though I think they should be linked there, since it was a WikiTree Challenge profile.

Cheers, Abby

I saw that you categorized my father. I very much appreciate it.

Thank you for reshowing the page, Abby.

Hi Abby! I was looking for images for Westward Ho subprojects and was sidetracked by the wonderful recipes and pictures you had posted in Abby's Tools. But... Where's the recipe for Blueberry Pie?! (I know why the image is there though LOL.)

Anyway, I created a new space page for images such as yours (and have added them to it) - see Space: Ancestral Recipes. I'm working on stickers for a couple of projects just now, but if you have a Blueberry Pie recipe you'd care to post, let me know! (If not, I'm thinking of a G2G post soliciting recipes and also advertising the new page.)

Thanks for the yummy recipes!

Cheers, Liz

And... I have since found the profile page for your Grandma Johnson & the page of recipes. Wonderful profile and LOVE the Space: Dorathe Cooked! Thanks so much for sharing.

Dear Abby,

Will you post a Military and War badge for this man. He has all of the minimum contributions as well as pre-1700 certified. I am running out of leaders.

Dear Abby,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing its first annual check-in with our project members. We are in the process of transitioning to a team structure. There will be three participant PIP Teams to start -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. Thanks so much for all that you do to help the Unknowns Team. There is also the Voyage Team who guide new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team.

For those of you who joined the Project before the Voyage started in late 2018, we would like to invite you to consider a "fast track" Voyage, especially if you plan to join the Biography Team. If you’re interested, choose a profile that you have completed to the best of your ability and compare it to the Voyage Biography Standards. If you’re at Level 2 or better, include a link to the profile in your response to this check-in for a “fast track” review.

We would also like to invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. (When you request to join our GoogleGroup, please be sure to include your Wiki ID). You will find more information on the GoogleGroup.

We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project and WikiTree. The Project’s mission is to:

Make profiles beautiful! We clean up messy biography sections and sources, and try to set standards for attractive, useful, and well-written biographies, starting with those we manage.

We know you’re working on profiles *smile* We would like to hear about successes you’ve had toward the Project’s goals. We would also appreciate any feedback you might have to help us improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or privately via private message to either of us.

Hi Debi,

I'd like to stay a member, though, I definitely don't give as much time as I'd like to improving profiles :-) That said with the time I spend on Team projects, I can't commit to a team, so if it's best to remove me from the project, I completely understand. Otherwise, here's a profile for you:

Cheers, Abby

posted by Abby (Brown) Glann
Thanks, Aby. We consider you a part of the Unknowns Team and I've added you to Bio Team Level 1 which is all about working on profiles from your own Watchlist and whatever else you find. Here's a corrected link to the GoogleGroup in case you are interested in joining. Debi

Hi Abby! I think our autosomal DNA connection must be on the Bunnell/Bonnell line, a descendant of William: In looking at your list of surnames Bonnell is the only one that I also see on my wikitwig. Kitty
