Retired from CN after 40 years, I'm now very involved in the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. I'm the RASC Past President; Editor of the RASC Observer's Handbook; Production Manager of the RASC Journal; Proofreader of the Observer's Calendar. Plus I write a newspaper article describing the skies for the upcoming month, distributed to about 20 weekly newspapers in southeastern Saskatchewan. For 10 years I co-wrote a monthly Edgar Events newsletter, ending at issue #116 (http://www.edgargen.ca/james.htm#Edgar%20Events). In 2016, an asteroid was named (22421) Jamesedgar. My hobbies include astronomy, woodworking, photography, writing, and genealogy. And, kids and grandkids, of course.

Greg Lavoie, Dave Rutherford and I have put a lot of work into restructuring the Canada Project. Have a look at the new project page.
You'll see that we've changed the project name to the Canada Project and the badge will be changed shortly. We've done this in order to provide lots of ways for people to contribute to Canadian Profiles. We've also moved towards a team approach with top level teams being lead by Project Coordinators and sub-teams being lead by Team Leaders.
Would you like to continue in the Canada Project, and if so, which team(s) would you like to be on?
Let me know if you have any questions. Once I hear back from you I'll add you to the Google group and get you set up in your team(s).

Thanks for having a big heart and adopting the Orphaned Profiles. This After Adopting Orphans FAQ explains the special attention those profiles need.
You might be interested in some of the tips and tricks that we have included in the How-Tos that we share with new members these days. They were created long after you became a member so you never received them.
If you have WikiTree questions, I am here to help.
P.S. If links do not work in an email from WikiTree, try them from the comment section on your profile page.

I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Also noticed you made 2317 contributions to Wikitree, thank you! Here at WikiTree we like to have our members involved with others; collaboration is key!
Thank you for choosing to join the Scottish Clans Projects. I know that the leaders will appreciate any help you can give. Here is a list of our other WikiTree projects you might like to check out as well: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Projects
Why don't you also stop by the One Name Studies project, to see if there's already a name study for (surname) going on? The current leaders for that are Doug Lockwood and Alison Andrus. They would be happy to get you started.

Have fun! As you add family profiles, you can use the green tabs near the top of each profile to find out what info will be visible to others - just toggle between private and public views.
Ask for help if you need it. Most WikiTree members are eager to offer guidance to a fellow genealogist. If you need additional help, our Mentors Project is a friendly bunch of volunteers who will be glad to assist you with WikiTree-specific problems.
P.S. Here's my favorite WikiTree page about sources.

There will be an opportunity to post your GEDmatch ID and other DNA info on your profile.
Once you post other family profiles, your info will show up on several generations of connected profiles as well.
