Hi Amy, thanks for checking in!

It seems most of my Scotland effort has been be flying solo. I'm not using Google or Discord, email works best for me.

I've been using to get sources for Forbes, Douglas, Stewart, Sutherland and Cumming family names (to name a few). I think I've used up all my credits.

I am continuing to work on Argyll in Scotland, seeing how far I can go back with families. Also hoping to add more families associated with Campbeltown Distilleries. I prefer Google Groups. I just can’t get the hang of Discord. (Why you never heard from me on Crawford name study -I think that’s what they use).
Scotland project got it right with Discord! Turned out to be the BEST realtime communication method I've yet to see from any WikiTree project to date.

... APPLAUSE:)...

This year I'm going to think about what happened around the time of the English Civil War and how it affected Northumberland allied families. And I'm interested in the Grays. Some antiquarians thought that after arriving with the Conqueror, one line went to Scotland and then the Northumb. sprang from it. I'm curious to see if there's anything in that theory.

I am trying to resolve a family surname from the 1700's due to a pending merge proposal. I am trying to determine the proper WIkiTree naming convention, at birth, to improve overall success of the tree.

I will admit that the name I included has a typo and should actually be Saulnier-Beausoleil. (I left out the L in Saulnier.)

The name, as it appears in official records is: Saulnier dit Beausoleil. I am not familiar enough with the French to determine how to proceed. In looking down the descendants of this line, some chose to use only Saulnier and some chose to go with Beausoleil, as my family did. (Some changed to a completely unrelated anglican name, too.)

This is a link to a record that has the name of marriage record in question: Goulet-938.jpg

Your help in bringing clarity to this will be greatly appreciated.


Hi Amy :)

It's that time of the year again: check-in time! As England Project Leaders, we like to check in with you every six months or so to see how things are progressing. Back in May, we didn't ask for a response due to the rapid emergence of Covid-19 because we understood that people's lives were changing rapidly. While we are still living in a Covid world, we do need to hear back from you this time around

First of all, how are you doing? What are you currently working on? Are you happy with the team(s) you're in, or would you like to change things up?

Secondly, we're looking for some feedback on the Google Group and our Discord server. Do you use either or both of these? If you don't use either, why not? Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve participation and collaboration, either generally or for you personally?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Amy, Joan & Lizzie.
