Communication Preferences: I am interested in communicating private message with anyone who shares the same ancestors. Here is my family tree. Ancestors ancestors
I am the Franklin Y DNA Project Administrator, as well as administrator of a few other DNA projects, including the Sullivan's Hollow, MS project.

I've been researching my family history for 40 years so I've accumulated a LOT of records, photos, etc and am slowly adding them to awesome WikiTree as I have time. If you have old family photos you are certain are our ancestors (not just downloaded off trees where I have encountered my ancestors photos that have been uploaded to the wrong people unfortunately), I would love to see them added to WikiTree.  :) thx!

Dear Lisa,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing its first annual check-in with our project members. Please review the following and let us know if you are content where we have placed you or would like to be more involved.

We are in the process of transitioning to a team structure. There will be three participant PIP Teams to start -- 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.

You're currently identified as a member of the Biography Team Level 1, working on profiles from your own watchlist, from projects in which you are involved, and whatever else you find. Biography Teams Levels 2 and 3 will work on designated profiles for notables (Level 3) and everyday people (Level 2). Please let us know if you would like to help with a higher-level Bio Team or one of the other Teams.

You joined the Project before the Voyage started in late 2018. We would like to invite you to consider a "fast track" Voyage, especially if you would like to work at a higher level on the Biography Team. If you’re interested, choose a profile from your own watchlist that you have completed to the best of your ability and compare it to the Voyage Biography Standards. If your profile is at Level 2 or better, include a link to the profile in your response to this check-in for a “fast track” review.

We would also like to invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. If you request to join our GoogleGroup, please be sure to include your Wiki ID. 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 and WikiTree. The Project’s mission is to:

Make profiles beautiful! We clean up messy biography sections and sources, and try to set standards for attractive, useful, and well-written biographies, starting with those we manage.

We know you’re working on profiles *smile* We would like to hear about successes you’ve had toward the Project’s goals. We would also appreciate any feedback you might have to help us improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or privately via private message to either of us.

Good morning Debbi,

Thanks for the update. I already consistently work at Level 2 as can be seen in any newly added, or worked profile by me. Indeed likely, from reviewing the data on the standards page, Level 3 is met. Here's one I did last month as an FYI: Again, a review of any done by me recently will show consistent use of this format and inline sourcing.

Thanks, Lisa, for getting back to us. I've set up a task to review Franklin-14615 for a Fast Track of the Voyage. From my brief look, I agree that you are working at Level 2-3. You may prefer to stay on Bio Team Level 1 as that Team is self-directed. Members of Levels 2 and 3 are provided lists of profiles that need to be improved.

I did see a few things that we teach the Voyagers that I want to share with you. I'll send you a private message with those suggestions and the list of soft skills that we make sure Voyagers know. I'm sure that they will be familiar to you.

Thank you for what you added to Horatio Franklin on my Tree. This is my wall. I cannot find anything on parentage to move back any further in this line. I have read the book on Woodstock where he is mentioned as a tavern keeper but that is all that is there really. I have also read there were records destroyed in CT in fires and raids. Still looking. I do not think we are the same Franklin line, but if you see anything on this family, sure would appreciate the info.
wow!! is all I can say.. I would give you an award.. but you have most of them.. your amazing!! Thanks

Hi Lisa, Thank you for the help with the Roy Renfroe side of my tree. Any tips or help you can give me to find out more info would be great. I'm an extreme novice and most of what I have is verbally handed down.
