Duncan Information - 2020 Scotlalnd Project Clan Duncan

Biography

I am currently researching my Couron family (Canadian Ancestors to US). Have a good deal of "Caron" information (Quebec area - 1800 to 1850 primary - with some earlier entries) that can be shared. Other research families:
2nd Generation - Duncan; Edwards

National Flower of Scotland
Duncan Tartan

3rd Generation - Couron; Rogers
4th Generation - Duval; Clark; Stewart (Stuart); Woolery
5th Generation - Capron; Winters; Nance; Denny; Goyet; Weaver; Ballard; Langlois; Cantin

Duncan Specific

I am also a Duncan Researcher and have access to a lot of pre-1850 U.S. Duncan info. If you should need any help here, please feel free to contact me direct. Many of the early US Duncan's have already been entered, but some still need cleanup The Duncan's are covered under the Scottish Clans Project -- Duncan Clan (if you are interested in participating in this, the link is below)

Here is what has been done so far – (currently working 1700 profiles – pre 1700 is pretty much completed)

Goals For each person:
All duplicates merged into the final profile ID; Final ID locked, marking the profile as project protected (must be done by one of the Leaders); Scottish
Clan template included on the page. All relevant categories are added; Parents are correct and documented; Biography is cleaned up, free of any GEDCOM junk, Ancestry trees, etc., [currently being moved to "Acknowledgement" Section Pending Final how to handle] and ideally has an actual written biography

Hi Sandy,

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

Thanks Jen. I am fine where I am. Continuing to Improve and clean up "old" items.

I do not use any "social media" groups so best way to ensure project communications is direct email, profile post, G2G etc with direct link. Regards, Sandy

Thanks for responding to the check-in. Please pm me with your email address, if you would like to receive direct communications. We will try to oblige, but sending out individual emails (when we have about 400 members) become fairly onerous. Thanks!

Hello Sandy! I hope this finds you well.

It's time for our annual Scotland Project check-in!

This year we are hoping to learn what our membership would like to accomplish over the next 12 months. In case you aren't aware, this year is WikiTree's "Year of Connections" and the Project's leadership would like to contribute to this in as many ways as possible.

We would appreciate it if you would share your thoughts and ideas with us on how we can accomplish this goal. We would also appreciate it if you would provide some feedback on our existing goals, including:

  • If you have not yet signed up to help on one of the project's teams, which team(s) would you be interested in joining?
  • How often should we provide a Project Newsletter?
  • Have you participated in the Tartan Trail? If not, is this something you'd be interested in doing?
  • Do you have a question(s) that we could add to a Frequently Asked Questions page?
  • Any suggestions or ideas you have on ways to improve the Scotland Project in general

We continue to communicate with our Project members via Google Group (official) and Discord (unofficial), as well as G2G. You may also reach out to any of the Project leaders via WikiTree's internal messaging system at any time.

Thank you for all you do to help the Scotland Project become a knowledge hub for Scottish genealogical research! We wish you all the best in 2022!

Thanks for your note Amy Re annual Scotland Project check-in. I am still good where I am. This year's projects include (but not limited to) working on some old data - trying to clean up a lot of "suggestions', locate/merge dups, connect orphans etc., and crosses over to several project areas (Scotland, Ireland, UK, Wales and US). Mostly concentrating on families of Collins, Edwards, Duncan, etc.

I don't have any Specific suggestions; although maybe some better overall search criteria (with expanded search fields and report displays that could help in overall merges, etc. Maybe could be handled via WikiTree X as a "special report (i.e, customized report writer that could transfer info to Xcel and use the built in field sorts ). I don't find any instructions on how I could write this myself; so if you know of something like this, please point me in the right direction. Regards, Sandy

Sandy:

I approved the merge of Collins-4357 and Collins-1848 which you proposed. Whatever changes you need to make, please do, so that the one profile will be clean.

Thanks for all you do.

Hi Sandy:

Thank you for proposing a merge of Collins-1484 and Collins-1817. I posted a comment on Collins-1817 as I had a few questions about the info in that profile. Birth years versus marriage years. A second marriage even though a death date of first wife is about 23 years later. Also, after doing some checking, the death year on both profiles seems very off. Some family trees and a memorial at Find A Grave differ. How long do you think I should wait for a reply before I complete my part of the merge?

Thanks for your help with this.

Hello

It’s time for a Project check-in!

Scotland Project Leaders check in with you at least once a year to see how you are doing. With the changes happening around the world, we understand that life is hectic right now.

What are you planning to work on for the Scotland Project this year? Are you happy with the team(s) you part of, or would you like to make some changes?

This time round, we’re also looking for 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 to ensure you receive Project communications? If you would like to join us on Google Group or Discord, let us know in your response.

I almost never use Google Groups. (very flakey connections). Email is best; (Project digests via Wiki) Pvt message/profile posts are also good for speedy response. Mostly I work direct with various Managers. Regards, Sandy

Thanks for checking in, Sandy :) We appreciate all the hard work you put into helping Scotland Project!

Hi Sandy,

It's that time of the year again: check-in time! As England Project Leaders, we like to check in with you every six months or so to see how things are progressing. Back in May, we didn't ask for a response due to the rapid emergence of Covid-19 because we understood that people's lives were changing rapidly. While we are still living in a Covid world, we do need to hear back from you this time around.

First of all, how are you doing? What are you currently working on? Are you happy with the team(s) you're in, or would you like to change things up?

Secondly, we're looking for some feedback on the Google Group and our Discord server. Do you use either or both of these? If you don't use either, why not? Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve participation and collaboration, either generally or for you personally?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Joan, Amy & Lizzie.

Thanks for your message. I am doing fine and good where I am. Currently working on some old Mulkey and Scanland data - trying to clean up a lot of mis-information, locate dups, connect orphans etc.,

I almost never use Google Groups. I have very flakey connections. Mostly I work direct with various Managers. Regards, Sandy

Edwards, William - A2404; born 1615, died 1673, Surry Co.: 1652-53, 1658 (Burgess).

+ Edwards, William - A2405; died 1698, James City Co.: 1693 (Burgess)

Hi Sandy, How are you? I am doing the application for Edwards William married Janet Reese, there seems to be some confusion,, I believe it is A2505 "if you can share your thoughts it would be nice" Thank you

Hi Janice. Thanks for your note -- I think the profile you want is actually William (Burgess of Surry) m. Dorothy https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Edwards-3764

vs the William m Jonet Reese https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Edwards-1874 Hopton Castle folks - (Presumed father of Thomas Nathaniel; Son of Joshua Edwards and Margaret (Babbs))

See also (research) info at Contemporary Williams --

(also some G2G info re Joshua and Edwards Heirs - let me know if I can provide helps or clarification on anything. Regards, Sandy

posted by Sandy Edwards
Edwards William married Janet Reese, this is my correct ancestry, not Dorothy (as wife)

Thomas Nathanial Who married Elizabeth Hall was the brother of William Edwards II,(my direct) Son of Janet Reese and William Edwards I

I believe Jamestown recorded this as A2505 (but I wanted to get it straight) any other comments are appreciated.

Hello Sandy

Your England Leaders are completing the six monthly check in with all team members. Thank you for your work on English Profiles and your work in the Sourcerers and Biobuilders teams.

These are unprecedented and difficult times, and we understand as Project Leaders that your situation may have changed somewhat in the last few months. What we are all able to/ wish to contribute on Wikitree has changed. Please let me know if you are happy with your current role and team choice, or if you wish to do something additional or different. Thank you again on behalf of all the Project Leaders for everything you do.

Jo

Thank you Jo. Yes, I am fine to continue where I am. The majority of my input is now concentrated on the suggestions report and am attempting to clear various db errors (time permitting). I do anticipate some cross over with the Wales project.

Hello Sandy

As you may have heard, we have merged the Scottish Clans project into the Scotland Project. I am contacting you today to find out if you are interested in continuing with us under this new format. If you would like to go forward on the Scottish Clans Team, please reply and let me know which clans you have been working on or would like to work on. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Amy Gilpin Scotland Co-Leader

Hi Amy - thought I already answered this, but maybe not - Currently am Duncan Clan Manager - See my email of Feb 19 at 12:43 (You, Mark, Sarah). Have you all reached a final decision re Armigerous Clan and Categories, etc.
posted by Sandy Edwards
I must have been missed adding it to the spreadsheet. My apologies. Yes, we're going with the category Scottish Families, and it will be part of the Clans Teams. I'll be working at getting Team pages set up in the next few days. Thanks for being patient with us while we get things transitioned.

Thank you for the information Sandy. The Duncan side of the family is one I have had a lot of trouble with over the years. I am sure all the information that's now at my fingertips will be a huge help!

Hi Sandy,

On behalf of the England Leaders, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your contributions towards the project in the past six months as a Team Member for Sourcerers and Bio Builders. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.

Are you happy to stay in your current teams and the project as a whole? Are there any other teams you'd like to join? What are we doing well, and what would you like to see us doing differently moving forwards?

Please respond to this message via e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,

Susie, England Project Leader :-)

Feel free to merge whomever on William Morgan

posted by Brenda Goins
Thank-you! It is a relief to see Duncans corrected with explanations as I am starting to track two in different time periods. You have saved me some time in the sorting. One line is theory/fact on ancestry for adopted grandmother, the other "supposedly" tracing back to James of revolutionary time, ending up in Georgia. The other has 9 hits DNA wise. In the early stages of research.

Hi Sandy,

Congratulations on making more than 100 contributions to WikiTree for the month of August!

We all appreciate your efforts to make our Shared Tree the best it can be.

Keep up the great work and THANK YOU!!

Shannon WikiTree Appreciation Team

Hi ,

On behalf of the Connectors Project Leaders, we are doing a six-month check-in with members. Please let us know if you are still active. If you are active, please let us know in which ways you are currently contributing to the project.

All of us at WikiTree would like to thank you for your contributions and hope that you are enjoying exploring your roots.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Michelle ~ Volunteer Coordinator

Hi Sandy,

We realise the time has come to dissolve the UK Project in favour of the individual country projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

We are checking in with all UK badge holders to find out which country project(s) you would like to be in so you can collaborate with other members, have the opportunity to select which team(s) you would like to join, and so we can ensure you have all the correct badges.

Please respond by PM to let us know which country project(s) you would like to be in. Please don’t assume we know. We are effectively starting from scratch to make sure no one falls through the cracks.

Once you have done this, the Coordinator for Membership in the relevant country project(s) will be in touch to help get you situated.

Many thanks,

Susie

Thanks, Sandy, for finding duplicates in the Duncan profiles I added last year. Sorry that I missed the matches if they came up then. Glad to share information and sources! Jane

Sandy, Thanks for pointing out Duncan-4186 as the father of Duncan-11762. I will try to combine info from Duncan-4186 with what I did last week, and then we can consider the best way to merge the two Nathaniels if that meets with your approval.
