Categories: Halifax, Nova Scotia.
My major genealogical research interests are in Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland. I'm helping to coordinate the Atlantic Canada Team of volunteers as part of the Canada Project. This means you might encounter me setting up new categories for things like communities, and religions for Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador.
The Canada Project is here to help you find resources, research assistance, and to start grouping profiles together using accurate historical categories (groupings) for places (like communities, cemeteries, and churches) and events (like immigration, or disasters). This way, the whole community can benefit from the good work all the volunteers have been doing.
If you're not sure what any of this means, or if you're not sure what (or if) you want to contribute to these projects, I'd still encourage you to add nova_scotia, prince_edward_island, newfoundland, or new_brunswick to your followed tags. This will help you see what's going on in the G2G question, answer and discussion board with researchers in your area, and might give you some ideas about how you want to contribute.
If you have any other questions, please contact me!
Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1976; with a mix of Nova Scotian and Newfoundlander ancestry that goes back a number of generations. A 23andMe test indicates my ancestry is primarily western European---British, German, and French, with a little bit of Native American and African. Grew up, mostly, in Hants County. Spent several years in Japan, and then in Melbourne, and Brisbane, Australia. Now living in Los Angeles, California.

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. I am asking members if they want to remain in the project, and since you've been active, I'm assuming you do. If that's incorrect, let me know, Brad! Thanks, Natalie

Let's say there are three profiles for Joe Schmoe:
Schmoe-1 Schmoe-2 Schmoe-3.
You must merge Schmoe-3 into Schmoe-1 and merge Schmoe-2 into Schmoe-1.
Do not merge Schmoe-3 into Schmoe-2 and then merge Schmoe-2 into Schmoe-1.
