Robin, do you happen to speak any other languages? Would you check out our languages template and add it to your biography? For example you might add

{{ Languages | en | ro-2 | he-1 }}

to the top of your biography if you speak English natively, intermediate Rumanian and basic Hebrew, or you could use de-4 to specify near-native German or ru-2 for intermediate Russian, and so forth up to ten languages.

It really helps to know who speaks all the different languages used on WikiTree! If there is a language you speak that is missing from our categories, I would be happy to add it. If you only speak English, you're very welcome to use this text to make that clear:

{{ Languages | en }}

I have to admit, the relationship finder is one of my favorite WikiTree features! We are indeed 20th cousins through John FitzAlan, but who knows, we might find a closer relationship later. I had a 21st cousin on WikiTree who I later found out is an 8th cousin after we connected one of our lines together.

I have added you to my Wiki Cousins Page.

Hi Robin,

I'm from Tustin/Santa Ana area. I love what you did with the Los Angeles Page, writing a brief history of each place and creating and linking profiles for the prominent figures. I'll volunteer to write brief histories for Tustin, Santa Ana, and Irvine and create profiles for Columbus Tustin, William Spurgeon (Santa Ana) and James Irvine and some of their families :)

If you would like to have your totals kept individually on the Sprint Tracking Sheet (, be sure to add an answer (not a comment) to the current Saturday Sourcing Sprint G2G thread ( Team membership is not required.

No pressure, every profile with a source makes our WikiTree better. Your work will be included in the Unregistered total at the bottom if you do not register.
