From separate family histories left by my grandmother and grandfather, who came from early Kansas and Oklahoma pioneers, with much collaboration I've traced my history through early colonial immigrants, and English and European nobility, back 1800 years.

Mayflower Ancestor - Richard Warren

  1. Bob is the son of Richard Fields 1936-1967 Enid, Garfield, OK

Dear Bob,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing a check-in with project members. Please review the following and respond to let us know that you are content with your current team or if you would like to be more involved.

The Project operates in a team structure. There are currently three participant PIP Teams -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. There is also the Voyage Team which guides new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team.

There are currently three different Biography Teams - The Biography Team, the Abandoned Team, and the Popular Team.

You're currently identified as a member of the Biography Team. The Biography Team works on profiles from their watchlist and other profiles that interest them.

Are you happy with the Team you are on? If you are interested in working with a different Team, please let us know.

If you have not already done so, we invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. (You will need your Wiki ID for both). Neither is required; we also use the Profile_Improvement tag in G2G for Project announcements.

We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project meet its goals. We would like to hear about the successes you’ve had and would also appreciate any feedback you have to help improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or via private message to one of us.

Hi Bob! Would you please check your pending access requests as Profile Manager? I have a few requests I made on Oct 24, they are for my ancestors. Thanks, Deb G.
Hi Bob!

Like all WikiTree projects we check in with team members twice per year and it's that time again. Please respond within the next two weeks to let me know:

  1. If you'd like to continue as a PGM project team member. I've noticed that you haven't posted any edits or comments in the last 6 months to PGM profiles so it might be a good time to re-evaluate your likely participation level in the future.
  2. If you're happy with the team you're on (Research and/or Profile Improvement) or if you'd like to make a change
  3. Optionally, what you like since the reboot back in May or what you think could be improved. This could be something about Discord, or Google Groups, or managed profile spreadsheets, or challenge participation or really anything. If you like everything the way it is, you can let me know that too :)

If you'd like to tell me about a particular project or family you're working on, I'd love to hear about that as well.

Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks!

Hi Bob, As a member of the Mayflower Project, it is now a requirement to add mayflower to your followed tags.

How to add to your followed tags: On this page. Towards the top, look for the word "following" and a bunch of green "tags" At the end of the green "tags", look for the word "edit" and click. The edit page is fairly self-explanatory. The place to add new followed tags is towards the bottom "Add New Tags" Add the word mayflower and then a comment (such as who your Mayflower ancestor is) and click on Enter New TAG

Hi, Bob. I'm not in the Notables project, but I just found out that Russell Johnson (of Gilligan's Island fame) doesn't have a profile manager. Is that something for you guys? I asked about it in G2G but wanted to make sure y'all saw it. Thanks!

Hello, Bob,

We are sorry to lose you as a member of the Categorization Project, but we understand that life gets busy and interests shift. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin the project in the future if you wish.

Hi Bob

It has been a couple of weeks since we contacted you about your participation in the Categorization Project and as we haven't heard from you, we are following up to make sure you wish to remain a member.

We understand that interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to the branches they are currently building. If this is the case for you, please let us know.

If we do not hear back from you within the week, we will assume you have moved on to other things for the moment and remove you from the project. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.

the profile Meigs-227, which I adopted as previously orphaned, carries a Notables project box which is throwing the suggestions complaint. I assume the notables project has no interest in him, so I would remove the box on cleanup weekend if there is no other suggestion. Just this week went to VMI museum, the people there were familiar with his son and grandson (who was killed nearby). I thought we might be related through the Fields name, as I have a Field line with a common Field ancestor to one of my late wife's Fields lines (her Fields grandmother has both lines). Not, according to Relationship Finder. Thanks, Tim
