I havent heard back from you about the break up of the United Kingdom Project. I hope all is well with you. I assume you dont wish to join any of the country-level projects at present, and will go ahead and remove the United Kingdom badge. If you wish to join England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland in the future, you would be most welcome to do so via the respective G2G sign-up post.
Many thanks for all your contributions,
We realise the time has come to dissolve the UK Project in favour of the individual country projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
We are checking in with all UK badge holders to find out which country project(s) you would like to be in so you can collaborate with other members, have the opportunity to select which team(s) you would like to join, and so we can ensure you have all the correct badges.
Please respond by PM to let us know which country project(s) you would like to be in. Please dont assume we know. We are effectively starting from scratch to make sure no one falls through the cracks.
Once you have done this, the Coordinator for Membership in the relevant country project(s) will be in touch to help get you situated.
Thanks for your hard work.
I have recently joined Wikitree but I am an
experienced family historian and my professional career was as a history master.
One of my main interests is in the ACKLAMS, especially the ancestors of my grandfather John ACKLAM (ACKLAM-15)
leading back to ACKLAM-1 John Acklam of Wharram Grange, his grandfather and further to a long line of Acklams/Ackloms in Bewholme and Bonwick. I can see that you have done a good job on tidying up and expanding on their biographies, but I can also recognise bits of my own work in the Beverley Archives put onto other websites.
Collaboration at its best. Can you please put me on the trusted list for ACKLAM--1 and others you control. I shall be hesitant particularly until I understand the Source system.
Im Susie the new leader of the England Project. We are contacting all existing members of the project to find out how you are currently involved, and how you would like to be involved moving forward. Please have a look at the England Project page for more information, and then contact either myself or Gillian to let us know what youd like to do, or if you have any questions. We can then list your interests, help you join the team in the Google group forum for England, and give you any help you might need to get going. If we dont hear back from you well assume you no longer want to be a part of the England Project at this time.
Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you,
A very warm welcome to the United Kingdom Project including the England Project and Wales Project. I've added the UK badge to your profile and your name to each of the member interests pages.
Thanks for joining and good luck with your research.
If youre new or feeling lost in the forest, heres our new "how to" pages: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:New_Member_How-To . Check out one at a time and come back later to read up on the next one at your own pace.
I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Also noticed you made 366 contributions to Wikitree, thank you! Here at WikiTree we like to have our members involved with others; collaboration is key!
Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Here is a list of our WikiTree projects you might like to check out: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Projects
Why don't you also stop by the One Name Studies project, to see if there's already a name study for (surname) going on? The current leaders for that are Doug Lockwood and Alison Andrus.
