It’s time for a Project check-in!

Scotland Project Leaders check in with you at least once a year to see how you are doing. With the changes happening around the world, we understand that life is hectic right now.

What are you planning to work on for the Scotland Project this year? Are you happy with the team(s) you part of, or would you like to make some changes?

This time round, we’re also looking for feedback on the use of Google Group and Discord. Do you use one or both of these? If you don’t use either of them, what is the best way to ensure you receive Project communications? If you would like to join us on Google Group or Discord, let us know in your response.

Hello William,

My name is Sarah and I’m the Project Coordinator for the Scotland Project. As you may have heard, we have merged the Scottish Clans project into the Scotland Project. I am contacting you today to find out if you are interested in continuing with us under this new format. If you would like to go forward on the Scottish Clans Team, please reply and let me know which clans you have been working on or would like to work on. I look forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,

Sarah Mason, Scotland PC

Thank you for your messages about Pinkeny-2. I am aware of the Racineshistoire website which makes attractive pedigrees, but it never shows its evidence, and where I have looked into cases it is often wrong. Of course it is no surprise to have mistakes, but if there is no explanation of the sources, it is impossible to use this as an authority.

Do you know any of the medieval evidence which might support any additions or changes to what we have?

re: question about Lt. on Adam Mott-30 According to Mott History from Ancestors & descendants of Sarah Eleanor Ladue by Grant Rideout, 1930; p 122, Adam was commissioned as Lt of Hempstead Militia by Gov. Nicholls on 22 April 1665. Adam is the 3rd ggf of Platt Mott, my step 2nd ggf (Wikitree-550). I've more research which has not been added to wikitree if you'd like to contact me. Hope this helps!

So the unknown unknown was not from my import. The benefit is that his wife has a death date. I'm guessing someone found a Mrs. Coggins wife of John Coggins died in 1692. Assuming it is accurate, it's just a piece to a very distant puzzle!

yes, the web browser could have been the problem, William. Anyway, all's ok now. Have a good evening and thanks for your comments..
William, when I first saw the "background" picture, it was across the entire front of the profile. Perhaps it was at the exact time as you were uploading it? I'm not sure. It's good now though, in the background as you intended.

Hi William,

Could you please come back to the two profiles you just created Browne-3859 and Tyrwhitt-112. The only sources they have right now is an unsourced Rootsweb profile. Per Help:Pre-1700, "You must never create a pre-1700 profile without citing an original or reliable source." Rootsweb does not appear to meet this criteria. See also Research Before Editing.

Thanks  !
