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 Ginny,

Hope you are well.

I sent you a check-in message a week ago about the Military and War Project to ask you about your continued involvement but have not yet heard back from you. Do you still want to be in the project? If I don’t hear from you by the same time next week I’ll assume that you’ve moved on to other things but you’re most welcome to re-join the project at any time.

Best wishes,

Mary~ Project Coordinator, Military and War Project

Mary, I replied and you replied back to me. I am including those two messages below! Thanks for checking so I am not dropped from the project.

Hi Mary, I hope this counts for being active in the Military and War Project. Anytime I find information that a person participated in a war - usually Civil War, I add the information to the profile along with the sticker.

Thanks for the check-in! Ginny

From you, Mary:

Thanks for the check in, Ginny. You are right on target for active. Those are plusses for any war, including Military and War which covers so many wars. Mary

Thanks for the welcome! It is a bit frustrating at first. I have done mot of my work on MyHeritage.com, but this may prove more avenues to search my wife's side of the family. And mine also. I will go back into it later on.

Hi Virginia, I just wanted to thank you for all the work you've done to improve the US Civil War Between the States Project. I'm doing a check-in with all project members and wanted to verify that you're still interested in being a member of the project. Also, any suggestions for the Project would be welcome. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi P,

Thank you for the message. I appreciate having the US Civil War project and I have enjoyed the very small part I have taken in the project. For right now, I would like to be removed from the project as I have some other areas I plan to concentrate on this next year. I will still place the appropriate stickers, etc. when I find profiles where they are needed.

Thank you for all you do for this project and I will consider rejoining in the future.

Virginia (Ginny) Fields

Hi Virginia, hope to see you again in the future. Thank you for responding so quickly. Pam

That you Virginia for your welcome post. Presently, I am trying to determine how to upload my GEDcom in Wiki-tree and to upgrade my status.
