Hi Dana!

Thanks for contributing to Puritan Great Migration profiles over the last six months. Every little bit helps, so please keep those edits coming!

Like all WikiTree projects we check in with team members twice per year and it's that time again. Please respond within the next two weeks to let me know:

  1. If you'd like to continue as a PGM project team member
  2. If you're happy with the team you're on (Research and/or Profile Improvement) or if you'd like to make a change
  3. Optionally, what you like since the reboot back in May or what you think could be improved. This could be something about Discord, or Google Groups, or managed profile spreadsheets, or challenge participation or really anything. If you like everything the way it is, you can let me know that too :)

If you'd like to tell me about a particular project or family you're working on, I'd love to hear about that as well.

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

Many thanks!

Brad Stauf, PGM membership coordinator

Hi Dana,

I'm wondering why you removed county categories from the profile of Lydia Chapin? Just curious.

Also, I had to change back the edits you made to some inline citations, since the <ref name=. . . </ref needs to be exactly the same as the original and you made them different.

But thanks for your efforts and all your work here at WT,,, it's not like I never make mistakes... so no problem.

Hey Dana, I saw your edits to removing an”unnecessary county category.” Is that a data doctors thing? I use county categories a lot, especially in deed research and it’s super helpful. Are we not allowed to use counties on individual profiles anymore?

I've been using these tags on all profiles and they haven't shown up on any error reports. Whereas some of my other profiles have had some error reports regarding certain tags so I think they are ok for now. I think the reason they do this is so they can break down towns vs counties in recordkeeping.
