I have been interested in my family history since high school but did not begin researching until after college. My research was sporadic for a long time as it had to fit between family activities of three children. For the past twenty or so years of the forty of my research life, I have made it my main avocation. Finding the missing pieces of the family puzzle and the supporting documents is truly fun for me.

Digital Afterlife

Some may think it is morbid to publish thoughts on one's own demise. Since I, as most genealogists, have been searching for and researching the lives of dead people for decades, it is natural for me to think about my limited future. Thank goodness, at this time, I am still advancing in age but futures are all uncertain.

In the event of my sudden and reluctant demise, I want my work on WIkiTree to live on; therefore, I hereby give permission for all of my private profiles to be transferred to any of the following WikiTree members whether or not they are on the Trust Lists:

Hi Virginia,

As you will have seen, we have been doing some restructuring in the US Southern Colonies Project and are now organising ourselves into different teams. We have also changed the criteria for membership. Please have a look at the new project pages, and let me know whether you would like to remain in the project and, if so, which team(s) you would like to be in.

Please can you also send me your e-mail address. I can then make sure you are introduced to your Team Leaders and are in the Google Group.

Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the US Southern Colonies Project that you respond to these check-ins. We’re really excited for the future of the project and hope that you decide to be a part of it with us moving forwards.

Many thanks,

Susie, US Southern Colonies Project Co-Leader
