Hi Susan,

It’s time for our annual Ireland Project check-in! Please respond within the next two weeks to let me know:

  • If you are happy with the team you’re on or if you’d like to make a change. It is now required that all members with an Ireland project badge work on at least one of the project’s team(s), so if you’ve not yet signed up please do so in your reply to this check-in.
  • What you think the project is doing well, and what (if any) changes you would like to see us make? Are there any teams you would like to become more active in?
  • Would you be interested in helping to work on an Ireland Project newsletter?
  • Please give us some feedback on the use of google group and discord. Do you use one or both of these? If you don’t use either of them, what is the best way for us to ensure you receive project communications? If you would like to join us on either one, Just let us know in your response and we will get you signed up.

Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. If we don’t hear from you within two weeks, we will assume you are no longer interested in participating in the Ireland Project, and your badge will be removed. If you wish to reapply for membership later, we will be happy to have you back. Many thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely, Jen Hutton, on behalf of the Ireland Project

Dear Susan,

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 the Profile_Improvement tag in G2G for Project announcements. You will find more information on the GoogleGroup.

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, Debi.

I am happy to be on the Biography Team and working to improve the profiles I manage. If I move forward, the next step would be to work on other profiles that need cleaning up and sources converted to inline.

I tend to improve profiles I manage as they come up on the birthday list, and then to add family members at that time, either going forward or backward, or both. I tend to use a narrative style biography, particularly if the bio is relatively short. I'm happy quietly working away and also happy to help out where I may be needed.

Thanks, Susan,

We're happy to have you work in Bio Team Level 1 or 2. You've been doing great Level 1 work and are welcome to continue there. The Level 2 page would be where the cleanup and inline citations lists would be found, as you are inclined to work on those.

Please let us know if you have any suggestions for how to improve the project and the pages/lists we have available.

Hi Susan,

I would to thank you for all your contributions towards the goals of the England Project during the past six months. We have achieved a huge amount during this period and we couldn't have done it without you and our other project members.

As the England Project Leaders, we are completing our six monthly check-in with all project members. Are you happy to stay in your current project teams? Which teams are you most active in? Are there other teams you would like to join or become more active in?

Also, do you have any feedback on what the project is doing well and anything we could do better in the future? Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks!

Hello Cousin! Here is our matching relation: This makes John the ninth great grandfather of Susan and This makes John the tenth great grandfather of Sarah. Susan and Sarah are 10th cousins once removed. It is so nice to be working together on the current Missouri challenge.

What do you know about that! Hi, cousin! <3
posted by Susan DeFoe
Hello cousin! Do you also live in Missouri or Arkansas? I just recently discovered my Missouri/Arkansas relatives. Took me many years to open up my last brick wall and that's when I discovered all my cousins here.
posted by Sarah (Shaw) Saenz
Hi, cousin! No, I was born in Tennessee and the paternal side is originally Sumner County and then everyone moved to Wayne County, Tennessee with some overlapping into Arkansas, and some in Lawrence County, Tennessee. I haven't lived in Tennessee in a very long time but I love putting together the pieces. The population was so sparse in Tennessee in the early and mid-1800s that everyone married family, making sorting out the relationships extra fun. Good to meet you!

Hi hun,

I appreciate the help on the Defoe profiles. I just have not gotten back to them. I entered them when I could not give them full attention. I will be going back in and editing, sourcing better and more, as well as formatting the biographies. Thank you for the time you have put in to them.

Glad to help. They came up in my anniversary list so I spent some time on them. I haven't searched the connection but I'm sure there's a connection in there somewhere. :-)
