Midred Bernadette (Cooney) Diem = my grandmother on my dad's side

Martin Cooney b 1860 = my great grandfather John Cooney & Martha (O'Neil) Cooney = my 2nd great grandfather & grandmother. You asked a long time ago how I was related to the Cooney family.

Hi Deidre

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 :-)

Hi Deirdre,

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,

Hi Deirdre,

I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! This certification requires participation in a project related to the profiles you wish to edit. It looks like you have joined the Irish Roots Project, so you're all set!

Let me know if I can help you find anything else you might need. Welcome aboard!

Welcome, Deirdre. I hope you will join the Global Cemetery project. Please take a look to see how you can contribute. I'll be happy to help, if you have any questions about it.
What were your great grandfather Wilder's first name and birth year? These clues would help determine if you might be related to me through my Wilders. Mine go first to my grandmother (Mildred Wilder Ames) to her father (Edward Baker Wilder) to his parents (Marshall Pinkney Wilder and Julia Baker Wilder). I am happy to help if we connect but keep in mind that there were two main lines from early settlement years - Edward Wilder and Thomas Wilder. Mine is the Thomas Wilder line.

Welcome to Wikitree Deidre!

The initial email from us has helpful links that get you started on WikiTree, which is not like any genealogy site you’ve ever used.

WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all work together as a BIG collaborative team!

What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree? When you confirm your email address, you’ll have an opportunity to Volunteer and tell us about your genealogical interests.

  • Once you choose to Volunteer, one of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way!

Welcome to the Family, we’re really glad you’re here.

Deborah, Greeter (from USA)
