Hi Marie,

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,

Yes I was having trouble getting it said and you have cleaned it up very nicely. The biggest clue for John's status is that on his death certificate L S Ward is said to be his son-in-law and the obit on the findagrave memorial that names Margaret Ward as his daughter. Am pursuing a census for them. Sharon

I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Participation in a project is strongly encouraged for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles. Be sure to also check out our Volunteer Hub to see our projects that really need new members!

Let me know, and I can help you figure out if there's a project that might interest you. Welcome aboard, we are glad to have you! Join the Scottish_Clans Project to collaborate. Ask a question or post a message for the group using the "Ask Question" button here. It will post a message in the G2G forum with the SCOTTISH_CLANS tag so that those following the tag will see it.
