I'm chaotic and my interests are called in many directions - hence the creation of numerous profiles of no relation to myself. However, I do tend to reply to e-mail regularly {Note: this has not been the case much since pandemic started, for reasonable reasons}. For the most part, if I am not related, all the information that I am aware of is either in the profile or the sources listed there. Still, I welcome the query.

Please set the Private son you have listed on Winslett-13 and any of his deceased descendants as Open so other Winslett descendants can collaborate and also so that we do not create duplicates.

DK Clews and Alton Fish are both descendants of Elizabeth (Barre) Cornwall (abt.1414-1468).

17th cousins once removed, funny we have never met. :)

posted by Alton Fish
Always willing to rectify that, cousin.

Did you notice that the connection is branched? We've connected through TWO lines, but both lead back to ol' Lizzy there.

I was doing some Data Doctor Project work today and came across all the USS Thresher work that you did recently. Wow! That deserves a huge thank you. Well done! It was inspiring to look through some of the profiles and learn about the USS Thresher and the accident that led to the loss of the boat. It was so interesting, I'm going to pick up one of the people you haven't included yet and take a deep dive on one person for a profile. I'll send you a private message with what I've done. Thanks for inspiring me to do this.

I'm always glad to have provided inspiration - but don't deserve such praise. That said, the information was there, with photos (which I didn't get permission to post, hence the link included under images). The most challenging part of it was adding all the categories, especially for those who had served on several other subs or on ships. In most cases I had to research and create those categories as well. Thankfully, there were several great sites dedicated to ships, submarines, and the military in general... including pages created or hosted BY the military and their archives.

Hi DK,

I noticed that you were currently following the CEMETERIES tag, but were not yet a member of the Cemeteries Global Cemeteries Project.If you are interested in more details about the project, or are just ready to sign up, please head on over to our G2G Welcome Post for more information.

I look forward to seeing you around the tree!

Thank you, Steve. I used to be a part of the project but in the end, partly because I live in Asia and cannot contribute "cemeterily" from here and partly since I have little spare time, I continue to follow the cemetery tag and to occasionally add profiles from cemeteries that I have photographed / profiled / taken an interest in or that I created findagrave profiles for but am not active in the Global Cemeteries project because I feel that I cannot contribute much.

Thanks again. DK

The England Project has noticed that Sterling Moss has passed away. We would like to help you to protect his profile and ensure that he has a proper biography that honours his life.

Hi DJ just wanted to let you know I'll be working on Maurice Ernest Gibb's profile for the England Project.  :)

Hi DK and thank you. My immigrant ancestor is Elder John Crandall, married to Mary Opp. Their fourth son Joseph born about 1661 continues the line with his son John born about 1682. That is the short answer. I'm not sure about Pastor Crandall. Sincerely R.

Hi DK, I'm following up to see if you received the trusted list requests to add the England Project account to Oliver Sacks, Bob Hoskins, Reginald Whistler and Richard Shepherd. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to discuss, otherwise, I'd appreciate your attention to this task, and the addition of the England Project WikiTree as account manager after you've added to the trusted list. Many thanks. Gillian

You received a message a couple of weeks ago about the new-look Global Cemeteries Project but we have not yet heard back from you. If you would like to continue in the project, please can you PM me your team(s) selections and your e-mail address for the Google group.

If I don’t hear back from you by this time next week I’ll assume you no longer wish to be in the project at this time.

Many thanks,

Darren :-)

Project Coordinator for Membership Global Cemeteries Project

posted by Darren Kellett
Hi DK,

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,


Leader, Global Cemeteries

Re: Peyton Polley

It's doubtful you'll be able to reconcile his birth date because slaves did not have birth records. They relied on their parents telling them when they were born and there is always discrepancies. In the census, the dates can sometimes be decades off. I estimated the dates based on the multiple census' I found and I did find a death record. These two Peyton Polleys are the same person.

Hi DK - you have done a gorgeous job on Thomas Garrett! Would you like to be the manager? let me know - I can orphan him then you can take over or request to join trusted list x
Sorry there was a misspelling in the merge I suggested. it should have been McLaughlin-4267 and McLaughlan-93 (this one being Mary Ellen McLaughlan) - not McLaughlin-93 (being Stephen). I mentioned Rene and Dorothy Irene as part of the reason that indicates they are the same person.

Hi DK.

All the celebrities from Who Do You Think You Are are going to become part of a new project, the "Genealogy in the Media" project. Would you like to become a member of that project so you can work on those profiles yourself? We'd love to have you as part of the team.
