I have just sent you a private message. Please let me know of you have received it.
I sent you a check-in message ten days ago about the 1776 Project to ask you about your past and continued involvement but have not yet heard back from you. Do you still want to be in the project?
If I don’t hear from you by the same time next week I’ll assume that you’ve moved on to other things but you’re most welcome to re-join the project at any time.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Mary~ Project Coordinator, 1776 Project
We're doing our semi-annual check-in with members to see if you have been active in the last six months? Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the 1776 Project that you respond to these check-ins.

I have been working on Richard Preece-70 GEDcom generated profile. I have identified records for his birth, marriage and death. I have run into a glitch that I need help with. I was trying to verify his marriage record on Free BMD. I located the record that coincides with FS source on Evoy Flavell-31; however, I cannot locate the record for her on Free BMD or on England PRO.
I decide to search using the Volume and Page search fields to see who else was on that page. This is what I found:
Surname First name(s) District Vol Page Quarter
PREECE Richard William Dudley 6c 41 Dec 1858
Harel Eva Dudley 6c 41 Dec 1858
Hasel Eva Dudley 6c 41 Dec 1858
Eva Flavel is the name on the FS marriage record. Is it possible/probable that transcribers misread the Fl as an H? Her father’s profile is Flavell-32 and grandfather is Flavill/Flavell-33.
Any help/guidance will be appreciated.
Take care and stay safe!
Richard became a widower at 27 so in all probability he remarried. I have a good candidate but can't prove it. Here's what I have
Marriages Mar 1874
Preece Richard Dudley 6c 83
Wilding Jane Dudley 6c 83
Name: Richard Preece
Spouse's Name: Jane Wilking or Davies
Spouse's Sex: Female
Marriage Date: 9 Feb 1874
Marriage Place: Saint Thomas's Church, Dudley, Worcestershire, England, United Kingdom
Marriage Place (Original): Saint Thomas, Dudley, Worcester, England
This is the same place he married his first wife. Opinion?
I would to thank you for all your contributions towards the goals of the England Project during the past six months. We have achieved a huge amount during this period and we couldn't have done it without you and our other project members.
As the England Project Leaders, we are completing our six monthly check-in with all project members.
Are you happy to stay in your current project teams? Which teams are you most active in? Are there other teams you would like to join or become more active in?
Also, do you have any feedback on what the project is doing well and anything we could do better in the future?
Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message. I look forward to hearing from you.

As far as the EP at large, I suppose my schtick at the moment is making sure people remove the GEDcom text when they work on/complete a profile on the GEDcom reports. I recently spent around 20 or so hours (not all at once ;P ) reviewing the English profiles on the Barron GEDcom report. Approximately 20 to 30 percent of the profiles on the report had been sourced and/or completed but were still on the report because the "this profile was created xx date as part of the Barron GEDcom upload" text was not removed. And that's just one GEDcom report; if I remember right, there are over 200 GEDcoms on the Wikitree GEDcom report list.
I am glad that everything is going well and I look forward to you getting OT3 and becoming a Trailblazer. Have a word with Joan about your ‘schtick’ a 6 monthly reminder on Google Groups might be a good way at reinforcing good practice.
I saw you added the England Project Needs Biography category to a couple of profiles, and I just wanted to let you know that we are in the process of migrating all the individual profiles out of that category and into their respective county profiles; they all should have their own now, so if you can nest profiles that need biographies in the correct county needs biography category, that would be incredibly helpful.

Thank you for joining the Mighty Oaks for the Clean-A-Thon and congratulations on your work during the CAT what an amazing result for the Mighty Oaks we added 32,841 . Altogether the teams fixed a grand total of 233,558 profiles suggestions. We hope you had fun while cleaning the tree.
See you later in the year for the Connect-A-Thon

Co-Leaders for the Mighty Oaks
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?
Joan, Amy & Lizzie.
I really enjoyed the October challenge-and being able to talk with other team members on Discord was a great help. They give a lot of suppport in addition to research assistance.
I would like to stay on the GEDcom team, and will focus more on completing OT2 the next few weeks. I would like to join the connections team at some point. I haven't decided what county team I would like to join; as I have so many English ancestors from all over England, I'm having a hard time picking one county.
We would love to have you join us in the Mighty Oaks for the fifth Source-A-Thon

Thanks for all the work you accomplished during our Connect-A-Thon 2020. It is amazing how many more profiles were created and added to our Shared Tree. You have every right to be pleased with your efforts!

Your England Leaders are completing the six monthly check in with all team members. Thank you for your work on English Profiles and your participation in the Orphan Trail.
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.
Take are and stay safe!
It looks like you may have some outstanding merges that need attention. You can find them by following the link at the top of this page under >My Wikitree>Watchlist, then hit the button that says Pending Merges
Thanks for helping with Wikitree
Thanks for the thanks--but especially for even noticing the profiles on that distant branch!
You deleted the FindAGrave source for Simkins-285, but without any explanation. I looked at it and it looks to be consistent with the other information in the profile, and contributes as a source with visual verification of the gravestone. So I have restored it for now -- could you explain why you deleted it and we can consider whether it is appropriate to remove it.
I'm a volunteer mentor, and would like to offer you some help in getting back to work on WikiTree. I enjoy working with our newer members and hope I can give you some pointers to help with creating great profiles in your tree that you'll be proud of.
Get in touch with me and we'll get to work right away.
The Ireland Project (previously the Irish Roots Project) has now changed its structure into Teams. We require everyone with the Ireland Badge to be a member of at least one Team or Sub-Team and our google group.
See https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Ireland for details.
The Teams are :-
Can you let me know if youd like to stay on in the new project and which team(s) youd like to join. Please also let me know your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the projects Google Group or confirm you are already a member of the google group.
I'm looking forward to working with you on your profiles!
Natalie ~ WikiTree Mentor
Can you please contact me? Seems like my messages/emails don't reach you.
Welcome to Wikitree. I saw your name in a recent wikitree feed showing that you had German Roots, too.
When, I ran your name in the Relationship finder in the tools menu & found something that may be of interest to you:
We share a common German ancestor: Philip (Hohenstaufen-1) Schwaben (1177 - 1208) wikitree Id: Hohenstaufen-1. He's your 26th g-grandfather and my 24th. We also share more than 32 other ancestors.
Be sure to try the relationship finder when you visit my profile page & explore all the new branches of your ancestry. You can verify each person and their relationship when you can click on the links to their profiles.
Always make sure to select "SEARCH 30 GENERATIONS" when you use the generation finder. We share more than 30 ancestors. Have fun, cousin!
Congratulations on being Pre-1700 certified.
Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many decendants,coordination is essential. Thanks for joining the QUAKERS and IRISH_ROOTS ProjectS.
Butch - Pre-1700 Greeter
Could you please be careful when creating pre 1700 profiles as they may already exist. I have started the merge process for the Poyntz duplicate profiles.
Also, using created trees are not acceptable sources. Even if they do have sources attached they are often incorrect and you need to check each one to confirm it relates to the right person.
If you are interested in early English profiles you should look at the England Project who can help with researching and sources for these profiles.
Please note that Find A Grave memorials are generally not accepted sources for pre-1700 profiles. (See pre-1700 self-certification quiz, question 7). Also, it would have been necessary to communicate with the European Aristocrats project before creating profiles such as Brabantine_de_Nassau-1 as they would have known that a profile already existed. They can also advise you about how to fill the name fields.
It would be good to add the "quakers" tag to your list of followed tags in order to be alerted to G2G conversations on the topic. Thank you!
Because Pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects coordinating them is essential. Please ensure location data matches date of profile and avoid abbreviations. Add citations & links for sources enable verification of data please. From the wiki ID go to Research to find sources to add.
Thanks for joining some projects, great to see your enthusiasm. You might like to add some of the location tags for the areas are interested in. For help with tags, click editing your tags to edit, please delete old tag, Thank you
Any questions just ask
