Hello John,

I’m Natalie, leader of the Categorization Project. Please have a look at the revamped Categorization Project page, specifically about the new team approach. Members will be now be part of the Maintenance Team. Project Liaisons and leaders will be involved in the Vision and Collaboration team. Please contact me within the next week to let me know if you would like to remain an active member of the project. If I don’t hear back from you I will assume you no longer want to be a part of the Categorization Project. Thanks, Natalie

Thanks you for looking at the proposed merge, John. I have come across quite a lot of profiles where there has been similar information although slight differences, but they have been the same person. You know you family better than I do. That is why the profile manager needs to approve a merge. Its so we do not get it wrong. I hope you did not mind me bringing it to your attention.

Hi John

As Susie mentioned in our newsletter, one of us would check in to see how you are doing, so here I am :)

Firstly on behalf of us all, I would like to say a big thank you for all the hard work you are putting into the Project. Your work on Berkshire is greatly appreciated. We would love your feedback and input on what you would like to see happening within the project as we move forward.

Do you have anything special you would like to see in the project, or have ideas for things we can add into the project?

Please feel free to post your thoughts in our Google Group, or you can send me a PM, either will be great.

Thank You
