Hello Ms. Gadsby. I just have one question:

Is it OK to use information from myheritage.com? Their Mansbridge details that I'm already famiiar with are correct but I don't know if they are considered a trusted source. Many thanks if you are able to reply. Paul Mansbridge.

Many thanks. Paul (Anonymous) Mansbridge.

Hi Hilary,

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.

Thanks for making me feel welcome to the community Hilary, have a good one!

Hi Hilary,

Thank you for the information about how to compare the GEDCOM and Wikitree. I seems so complex. But with time it will become easier. Thank you very much. Hazel

Hello Hilary

Your England Leaders are completing the six monthly check in with all team members. Thank you for your work on English Profiles and your work with so many parts of the England Project, including PC for Helpdesk and Regional Coordinator for the South East counties.

These are unprecedented and difficult times, and we understand as Project Leaders that your situation may have changed somewhat in the last few months. What we are all able to/ wish to contribute on Wikitree has changed. Please let me know if you are happy with your current role and team choice, or if you wish to do something additional or different. Thank you again on behalf of all the Project Leaders for everything you do.

Hi Hilary, I have another problem.

In editing Johansson 6665, I can't get a response when I click onto gender or language. Do I need to put my tongue in a special place or is there a more logical solution. Bob Loov

posted by Robert Loov
I am not entirely certain what the problem is with the profile.

The language is set as Swedish and the gender is female,

I am interested in joining your Buckle one name study group.

I see that you come from the Hampshire branch. I come from the Berkshire branch. The only other branch I know of in England , apart from Yorkshire, is Suffolk.

I have been doing quite a bit of work trying to connect up the Berkshire branch members.

Hello Hilary!

Re your Gadsby name study: have you done anything on the Gadsbys of Snelston, Derbyshire? I am sure Gadsby-254 is a conflation of at least two different people. One of them is the father of Gadsby-461, which is where I'm coming from. Neilson-1115 doesn't seem to be active .... :( Stephen

Hi Hilary, I have come across a few Ozias Kemps in my research. You may note that the Kemp line you have connected Terry Pratchett to is one of the larger Kemp lines I have researched and is quite famous in Hitchin-Kemp's book.

Thank you Hilary for welcoming me.
I am trying to add my mother to my tree and entered all the proper info. It won't allow it and shows this error. Error: Invalid data. The following must be corrected:

This person has data indicating they are both living (Active WikiTree User) and not living (Death Date 1979-03-06, Death Date 'non-living', Death Place Montreal, Quebec, Canada). My mother passed in 1979, I was there and have her death certificate. What do I need to do to enter the proper info?

posted by Robby MacDonald
As I mentioned we both have large family trees and it would be better to have to separate accounts. Which when the DNA was downloaded it was two separate accounts. Now I am only finding one account.
