Hi! I was going through template errors & has one but has a hold request on the profile.

It currently has the template coding {Appalachia Sticker | Odessa E. (McDougle) Vreeland}

The name is not necessary and is causing a database error. Correct would be {Appalachia Sticker}

The stickers are using double braces front and back for the two options (notice they look the same, but the second won't cause a database error).

Robin (Dodge) Shaules was an Appalachian.
Robin (Dodge) Shaules was an Appalachian.

For information about parameters supported by the sticker, please see

Dear Robin,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing a check-in with project members. Thank you for all you do with all of the project.

The Project operates in a team structure. There are currently three participant PIP Teams -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. There is also the Voyage Team which guides new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team. There are currently three different Biography Teams - The Biography Team, the Abandoned Team, and the Popular Team. You are currently identified as a member of the Voyage, Maintenance Category, and Unknowns Teams, as well as the Popular TEam.

If you have not already done so, we invite you to join the email GoogleGroup. We use the WikiTree Discord server #profile-improvement channel for our project. Neither is required; we also use the Profile_Improvement tag in G2G for Project announcements.

We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project meet its goals. We would like to hear about the successes you’ve had and would also appreciate any feedback you have to help improve the Project.

Hi Robin,

It's good to connect again! I am glad to be in the project. My question is, though, I live in CA (Santa Clara county) and actually have gone to several local cemeteries before (volunteering with FAG or something) and am happy to help with them. I have family interest in the Birch Lake Cemetery in Cass County, Michigan though. How can I notate this on the members list?

Thank you for the join too!!!

Best, Bob

Hi Bob,

Yes, I see you out in WikiTree land a lot and of course on the Tree Nuts.  It's good to hear from you.  I hope all is well.

I will add you to the California list and show Santa Clara County on the Cemeterist roster.  Give me a minute or two and you can have a look (  I'll add Cass County in as well.  Please let me know if there are any other areas you would like to be added to.

Best, Robin

Hi Robin, I goofed, last year, when setting up a cemetery for Carr township, Jackson Co, Indiana and not sure how to fix it. Carr township should not have Jackson County included. When I attempt to add another cemetery to Carr township it wants me to include the Jackson County in the category title and the location line in the Category info box. What happens if I remove the Jackson County from the spots that it should not be. How to fix please. thanks Patt

Thank you bringing me on board, Akatarawa Cemetery is actually in Akatarawa. Upper Hutt is the nearest city to this Cemetery.
Robin, thanks for your work on the Oregon Eakin clan. My mother-in-law is Laura Eakin-390 who left me many records from her Eakin family. Best wishes! Jane
posted by Jane (Snell) Copes
Hello Jane, I've enjoyed the work on the Oregon Eakin's. I came upon them in the round-about way that genealogy takes us. My g-g grandmother's sister Catherine McEldowney married Stewart Bates Eakin. If you haven't seen it you might find the diaries of the Eakin trek to Oregon interesting. It can be found on and is titled "A Long and wearisome journey: the Eakin family diaries, 1866". Regards, Robin

Life is getting back to normal, such as life can... Subsequent to the death of my wife of 59 years, I became [what's the right word...enamored seems to work] with my high school sweat heart, who happens to live in Holland. (See the managers of my profile.) I spend about half my time in Holland one month at a time. If you study my "contributions" you'll see they are sporadic. That's the way it's going to be from now on, I won't engage in any 'community' work, just what I can find and contribute. This is in response to a message from Debi McGee Hoag about joining some project or other. I have a project, it's adding people to WikiTree, That's enough for me.

Keep up the good work...

Hello Tom, and thank you for your note. I'm sorry for your loss, but it does sound as if your life is proceeding in a good direction. Thank you for all the work you have done on WikiTree and continuing to contribute to the big Project... adding people to WikiTree.

Robin! Thanks for your message. After reviewing my Notables page etc., I think I better just stay where I am and clean up my profiles...I have so many and I have kinda let some of them sit while I do other things. So, I will tackle that project first before I do anything else. I am very thankful for the work you and Debi do in order for us to create better profiles! Here's one of my latest profiles I am working on. Ross-24219

Robin! Thanks for your email. Level two is fine for me. I spent a few months with the BioBuilders group but because I had so many other profiles that needed updating (PIP Standards) I took a break from Biobuilders (they have different topics each month). Presently, I am going through all of my Notables, LDS and family profiles and bringing them up to standards. (also attempting to keep my suggestions window cleaned up.) However, I would like to learn about the requirements for Level 3. Like I mentioned before, I know that Ancestry has changed some of their sharing options. Thanks for all of your efforts and I will be waiting for your direction. Have a great day! Scott

Hi Robin

Regarding the new PIP project I would like to join the Biography Team (level one) I have requested to join the Google group but was unsuccessful in joining the chat Discord channel....... sorry it seems to be in a loop Please advise / Is anything else required from me?

Sincerely, Ronel Olivier

Hello Ronel,

Thanks for joining us on the PIP Biography Teaml Level 1. We are in the process of assigning everyone to their requested teams.

We had some issues with our GoogleGroup, but those have now been resolved. If you are interested in joining us there, please use this link:


Please take a moment and open the google page, click on "my membership settings" in the lower-left corner and check your DISPLAY name....this will assure that the left hand column states your name rather than your email address (which is already in the middle column)? This is a private group, so we hope you're willing to make this change so that it's easier for everyone to know who's making a comment or contributing and get to know you better.

Are you still having trouble with Discord?

Thanks again for joining us. I'm looking forward to getting to know you. Best, Robin

Dear Robin,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing its first annual check-in with our project members. We are in the process of transitioning to a team structure.

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). 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.

You finally did it!!!! Congrats on attaining Astronaut... not public on G2G yet but wanted to wish you my very very happy congratulations !!!! Well done indeed.
Thank you, my dear friend!! Your congratulations mean a lot! It's been fun getting here, and you have been my cheering section along the way. Most of all, thank you for being my friend.

Hi, Robin! Good to meet you. I've seen your posts before in different groups. The connection finder shows that, with 2 in-law connections, we are distant cousins-in-law. (Through your several-greats uncle on your mother's side Ben Frazier's wife, and my bunch of great's grandmother on my mother's side Rachel (Unknown) Prickett Beezley's 2nd husband.) The relationship finder finds that we are also blood relatives: 14th cousins once removed, through your mother's side and my father's side, as we both descended from Phyllis Ripple. Welcome to my family. I live in Albion, Mendocino county, CA, also in the redwoods.

Hi Alison! It's good to meet you and we're almost neighbors as well as being cousins, in a round-about way. Thanks for the family welcome. Same to you! You're not too far from us, relatively speaking. In fact I think you're the closest I've found geographically in WikiTree to date. My husband and I camped not far from you some years ago at MacKerricher State Park. My husband was surfing in those days and he went surfing at the river mouth (I forget which river) in Mendocino. It's beautiful there. We moved here from Monterey about 2 1/2 years ago and we really like it. We'll probably stay put for the duration. I hope our paths continue to cross in the future. Thanks for getting in touch.

The river would be Big River. Lots of surfers surf there. Not many

rocks, so pretty safe. I will let you know if I'm up that way (like after the pandemic is over), in case we want our paths to literally cross. My husband has some Dodge ancestry. I haven't checked to see if it's the same as yours. They are the Dodges of New Shoreham, RI.

The Global Cemeteries Project is currently undergoing our member check-in and wanted to verify that you are still active and interested in being a member of the project. Are you currently assigned to or working with one of our Cemetery Teams? If not, is there a particular Team or area you are interested in participating with? I would be delighted to help you get setup in one or more of our collaborative teams!

We use Google Groups for internal project collaboration, so if you are not yet setup for access feel free to submit a join request and we will get that approved as quick as possible. We also ask that members check their followed tags to make sure you are following the correct project tag (CEMETERIES) so you don't miss any discussions in G2G.

Last, but not least, we would like to thank you for all of your contributions to WikiTree and let you know that any ideas or suggestions for improvement you may have for the Global Cemeteries Project would greatly appreciated!

I look forward to hearing form you soon!
