I have spent a long time researching family history, I have an extensive collection of extracts from Dorset records especially to do with the Kingsbury family. The extracts have been recorded by my parents, sister, myself and more recently by my daughter. My Dad was born in Lincolnshire and always called himself a 'yellowbelly' particularly interested in Tebb and Twells/Twelves families mostly in Holland and Kesteven areas.

This wikitable is an example of a table of known ancestors. It shows how much of a person's ancestry is known for ten generations. The idea was introduced in the G2G forums by Peter Roberts in this discussion.


A new version was created with some small changes in the table entries, but mostly the width of the headings and text entries is adjusted so the table will always fit in the available space on a WikiTree profile (it shouldn't ever spill over the right margin of the column).

Hi Heather,

I see that you have been managing Mogg-64 for a while, and that this is flagged as being "under construction". I'm working on clearing some of the Data Doctor suggestions at the moment that affect this profile. Would you mind doing them, or alternatively remove the "under construction" template if it is no longer relevant?

Kind Regards John

Hi, Heather. Some considerable time ago you left a source on the profile of Admiral Sir Charles Bullen which implied that he died at Norwich. He was a resident of South Stoneham in Hampshire where he was buried on the 7th of the month and where his death was registered. Can you provide the full content of the source to help me make sense of the information, please?

Hi,

I took this reference from family search. I see that this is a reference to a Find My Past newspaper site. "British Newspaper Archive, Family Notices," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QPCN-B5VT : 17 April 2019), Charles Bullen, Sir G C B K C H Admiral Of The Blue, Norwich, Norfolk, England, United Kingdom; records extracted FamilySearch and images digitized by FindMyPast; citing Norwich, Norfolk, England, United Kingdom, 9 Jul 1853, The British Newspaper Archive, Ireland; FHL microfilm .

As there are a number of references on Find My Past, I have been unable to detect the exact article. Sorry I cannot be of more help.;

Hi Heather,

I would like to thank you for all your contributions towards the goals of the England Project. We've achieved a huge amount during this period and we couldn't have done it without you and our other project members.

Also, do you have any feedback on what the project is doing well and anything we could do better in the future?

Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message. I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Heather,

It's that time of the year again: check-in time! As England Project Leaders, we like to check in with you every six months or so to see how things are progressing. Back in May, we didn't ask for a response due to the rapid emergence of Covid-19 because we understood that people's lives were changing rapidly. While we are still living in a Covid world, we do need to hear back from you this time around.

First of all, how are you doing? What are you currently working on? Are you happy with the team(s) you're in, or would you like to change things up?

Secondly, we're looking for some feedback on the Google Group and our Discord server. Do you use either or both of these? If you don't use either, why not? Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve participation and collaboration, either generally or for you personally?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Joan, Amy & Lizzie.

Hi Joan,

I am currently hopping around my family tree as I am sometimes finding it hard to concentrate. I think I have had long covid but not so badly as a lot of people. I have been lucky that I have been able to continue working.

I became a Trailblazer this summer and that has given me something to focus on as i really enjoy helping people. It has been good to speak to other wiki treers in this way. I often read messages in google groups and Discord. I sometimes enter in the chats, when I have something to say.

I enjoy taking part in the challenges and Thons where I can. I would like to do more with the Dorset team as this is the reason I joined Wikitree in 2019.

I would just like to say that this is such a friendly bunch of people and that it is wonderful how we can all collaborate to improve our knowledge without feeling that we are treading on each other's toes.

Hi, Heather!

Thank you for your participation in October 2020’s Source-a-thon. Your contributions helped us to clear over 57,000 profiles that needed sourcing. This makes our Shared Tree all that much better.

Keep up the great work!

Hi Heather,

Your England Leaders are completing the six monthly check in with all team members. I wanted to thank you for your work on English Profiles.

Hi Amy,

Thank you for your message. I have just become a Trailblazer which is reminding me to look at some of my own family profiles and see that my great grandparents need a lot of work!!

I would be happy to add Leicestershire and Somerset and Devon to Lincolnshire and Dorset if needed as i mainly look at those counties on our weekend a thon's Slightly less with Somerset but lived there for 40 years and although live in Devon, I go to Somerset about twice a week. I intend to visit Somerset Archives as soon as i can.

I have really enjoyed being a member of the England Project and have found many friends on Discord

Thanks for you all being so friendly.

Heather

Hi Heather,

I'm glad that you're enjoying the project! You aren't "needed" to join any team you don't want to! I work in plenty of counties (my Place Study is in Gloucestershire) without being part of the county teams themselves. It's up to you what you want to do :)
