Thanks for the information about WikiData (although I don't really understand it). Are they any other categories Tisa might fit into?

Whenever I adopted Phoebe I just clicked the "adopted this profile" link at the bottom of her page. I didn't go to the link you posted. I adopted 3 profiles that I'm 80% sure that I'm related to. Still need to do a lot of research though. Thanks again for all your help. :-)

Hi Natalie, Merry Christmas! Thanks for adding Phoebe Lalonde and her obituary. It's amazing how many little tidbits you can find out about a person on an obituary. Since I adopted her should I get a Big Heart badge?

Hi Natalie I corrected the FAG database error- 587 Link to non existing find a grave ID, on Richard Zimmerman's profile on the 22nd by first searching for his memorial , adding the new citation at the bottom of his memorial, which just takes you to the search page of FAG so I added the short URl that goes directly to his FindAGrave memorial in the new citation on the 22nd, but after I read the Data Doctors thread on yahoo thought I would recheck the ones I edited. I see you removed that and added the citation that goes to the FindAGrave search page in place of it?

Thank you,

Thanks for the welcome. As stated, the quiz itself is a learning experience. I especially appreciate its stress on not trusting secondary and tertiary sources, even if they are published. (This also applies to the 1800s and 1900s and 2000s.) Often, however, this is all that exists, so we face the choice of including someone whose information is tainted, or to exclude them altogether. One woman I found would have been a great entry into the recent "Strangest Names" contest: Thankful Mix (1695-bef 1745). Instead of making changes myself, I will suggest additions to her list of children to the genealogist who originally posted Thankful.

And ... I am "thankful" to you for your support.

Thanks for the pre-1700 badge, Natalie! I thought I knew most of the answers, but I learned a great deal. Much appreciated, and the quiz is part & parcel one of the things I like most about WikiTree and its thoughtful policies.

Best, Holly

Hi Natalie,

thanks for your message! I'm having a bit of trouble deciding what to do. There's currently only one of my ancestors born pre-1700 that I would like to add. The Donauschwaben subproject of the German Roots Project would be the perfect fit - but it doesn't have a Project Page yet. Should I contact its coordinator, or should I join the German Roots project?
