William , I received a message asking that I add the Virginia Project to the trusted list of the Jamestowe Project. I have no clue why I would get this message. Then it appears the Virginia Project wants access to a great many of my watchlist. I don't understand what is being asked of me. Thank You.

William you are a star - your research helped with my tree considerably. We are 8th cousins - through Richard Withers Simpson II (1692 - 1762) [Simpson-796]

Hi William! I enjoyed reading your blog interview. I ran the relationship feature: we're distantly related! 17th cousins twice removed through Robert Darcy (Darcy-1). Thought it was interesting!

Congrats William for your selection as Member of the Week and the very nice interview and photo. THANKS MUCH for your fantastic organization of sources for my John Adams, being new I'll try to emulate that! I'm going to follow you and learn a great deal from you on Wikitree. We are cousins, via the Trigg/Burk ancestry! And you are the famous Trigg ancestry! I'm the Burk/Priddy ancestry. Small world! Trigg County, KY (close to home) named after these ancestors!

Hi William, I hope one day we could do that with triangulation. I was never able to find distant cousins to test with on the Clarke line to confirm Common Ancestors. I would be interested however.
