I am an 8th Generation Appalachian American.

I am as wonderful and diverse as my Appalachian Heritage. As you explore my branches of the tree you will see that my roots are grounded very deep in the Appalachian soil of Kentucky and that those who did brave to venture out of Appalachia it was not for long and most returned home even it if was just to be laid to rest in a family cemetery close to where they breathed their first breath.

Pamela (Dale) Fraley's DNA Confirmations

We Are The Chosen

In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again.

To tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.

Doing Genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before.

We are the storytellers of the tribe.

Trusted List Transfers

Due to my Cemetery Projects, I tend to manage Profiles that I have no personal family line to. I love to turn over the Profile responsibilities to those that have personal interest & knowledge of an Ancestor.

Hi Pam, thank you for your enthusiasm for Appalachia, in particular your contributions to northern Appalachian profiles. As I imagine you know, northern Appalachia often gets short shrift, ignored and erased, sometimes by those in southern and deep Appalachia who are ignorant of Appalachian hill culture to the north, that indeed much of Appalachia in West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee was peopled by migrants from central and western Pennsylvania. Congrats also on the phenomenal connection count.

That said please do take some care when adding stickers and categories to profiles at the periphery. I noticed you added a sticker to the profile for my 3rd g-grandfather George Washington Teeter who lived all his life in Lansing, New York. It’s a real stretch to call Lansing Appalachia. Tompkins county is an Appalachian border county. Much of the towns of Newfield, Danby, Caroline and even Dryden are in the Appalachian foothills, but Lansing is solidly in the Finger Lakes, a flatter glacial terrain that is geographically, geologically and culturally distinct. A town like Ithaca (encircling the city) is truly at the border, encompassing the edge of the Appalachian foothills and the southern extent of Cayuga Lake, where these regions blend together.

Thanks Nathan,

We use the guidelines set up by the Appalachian Regional Commission. It seems in almost every state there is debate by someone about their area not being Appalachian. If you feel that the ARC is incorrect please feel free to remove his sticker and any categories. We respect everyone’s opinion and how they choose to represent their ancestors. Have a blessed day Dear.

posted by Pam (Dale) Fraley
Thanks Pam. I've removed a number of these stickers applied to related family group including the Hagins who lived in Lansing.

I don't think that the Appalachian Regional Commission has "guidelines" anywhere that state that the entirety of every county in their service area is "Appalachian." If there are such guidelines please point me to them.

I'm not arguing that there aren't parts of every ARC county that are Appalachian. I'm saying that there are parts of ARC border counties that are pretty clearly not Appalachian and this label should not be applied to all of border counties indiscriminately. Some counties are large, some are small, some encompass multiple geographic regions.

I don't have a problem with you adding this sticker to counties that are clearly within Appalachia, but adding the sticker and categories, with nothing else, to profiles in border counties that have no clear connection, geographical or otherwise, does not improve these profiles. By many measures Atlanta is more "Appalachia" than Lansing, but it is not an "ARC County," and I think we would probably agree that adding the sticker to every Atlanta profile would not be an improvement.

Hi Pam,

This category, https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Mount_Sinai_Methodist_Cemetery%2C_Piedmont%2C_South_Carolina has 15 links to it that need to be deleted before the category can be deleted, see the "What Links Here" link.

Many thanks, regards, Margaret, Categorization Project.

Hi Margaret

Im confused. When I go through the link there isn't anything in the category that I can see. I moved the profiles before asking for the deletion.

posted by Pam (Dale) Fraley
Hi Pam,

Yes, Natalie has corrected the links and the category has been deleted. You removed the category from the profiles but not the links to the category in the text of the profiles and space pages.

Have a look at this profile change, https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Elrod-1632&diff=163499757&oldid=163380550, as well as the change on this space page https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Pam%27s_Cemetery_List&diff=prev&oldid=163499658 and this one, https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Space:Mount_Siniai_A.M.E._Church%2C_Piedmont%2C_South_Carolina&diff=163499683&oldid=163205814

When you want to change a category that has profiles and links on profiles/pages to the category, it is better to use the Rename Category rather than Delete Category, as Editbot will change the category on links but does not delete links to a category in the text of a profile or page, as that could mean there could be gaps in the text. Alternatively, if there are no profiles, any links should be corrected before sending for deletion.

You can check if a category has any profiles or pages with links to it, by checking the "What links here" link at the bottom right hand side of any category page.

Regards, Margaret

Thank you! I see now. I was trying to save edit bot from having to do it. I will be more careful moving forward.

Dear Pam,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing its first annual check-in with our project members. Please review the following and let us know if you are content where we have placed you or would like to be more involved.

We are in the process of transitioning to a team structure. There will be three participant PIP Teams to start -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. There is also the Voyage Team who guide new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team. You're currently identified as a member of the Biography Team Level 1, working on profiles from your own watchlist and whatever else you find. Biography Teams Levels 2 and 3 will work on designated profiles for notables (Level 3) and everyday people (Level 2). Please let us know if you would like to help with another Team.

We would also like to invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. (When you request to join our GoogleGroup, please be sure to include your Wiki ID). Neither is required; we also use Profile_Improvement in G2G for Project announcements. You will find more information on the GoogleGroup. https://groups.google.com/d/forum/wtprofileimprovement

We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project and WikiTree. The Project’s mission is to:

Make profiles beautiful! We clean up messy biography sections and sources, and try to set standards for attractive, useful, and well-written biographies, starting with those we manage.

We know you’re working on profiles *smile* We would like to hear about successes you’ve had toward the Project’s goals. We would also appreciate any feedback you might have to help us improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or privately via private message to either of us.

Hi Pam,

We'd love to have you on Bio Team Level 2 with us. There are instructions on how to find the profiles we would like to have help with on that page. Please let us know if you have any questions about how to work those profiles.

Please note that the headings between Biography and Sources should have three equal signs on each side rather than two. See Additional Sections portion of the Biographies Help page for more information on that.

Profiles being worked on by Bio Team Level 3 will require extraordinary attention to details such as grammar and punctuation. Many of us use the Grammarly extension to attain that high standard. Each of the samples you provided had more than the Level 3 error limit. If you would like to bump up to Level 3, give the extension a try on a couple of those profiles and re-submit them.

Please let us know if you have any suggestions for how to improve the project.

Hi Pam, you recently created 6 location categories that don't have a parent category, see this list. Please add the relevant County, State parent category. All categories must have at least one parent category, or they are not part of the category structure.

Thanks, Margaret, Categorization Project volunteer.

I reviewed the list and they have parent categories. I don’t understand why they weren’t saving that field. I had the CIB completely filled out before saving. I’ve created way more than 6 cemeteries this week-end. Thanks for letting me know.
posted by Pam (Dale) Fraley
The location categories still don't have a parent category, see for example this one https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Elm_Springs%2C_South_Dakota it should have a parent category of Meade County, South Dakota
Thank you for the example. With it I was able to understand that my issue was with the city/town information box and not the CIB. I cleared the list. Have a blessed Sunday!
