Dear WTers, I am still quietly working on my existing profiles, but please PM me for any queries in case I miss them here on my profile page. Thank you!

Ko Takutimu te maunga

Ko Aparima te awa

Ko Murihiku toku whenua

Ko Aotearoa toku turangawaewae

I was born in Invercargill, Southland, New Zealand, and have lived in Clyde, Central Otago, Timaru and Christchurch, Canterbury, and California. I'm now living in Zurich, Switzerland.

I come from a pretty homogenous assemblage of immigrants: farming Scots from the Borderlands, Cornish miners, Sorbian Prussians, and a smidgeon of French. People from all of these backgrounds found their way to New Zealand Aotearoa for a new beginning. Learning their stories helps me to weave together my own whakapapa and understand what made them leave family behind to settle on a small island on the other side of the world.

Hi Tracey,

The Australia Project leadership team are carrying out a check-in to see how you are going in the project and especially to thank you for all your work on Australian profiles on WikiTree. We really value your participation.

Please could you get back to me by private message to let me know if you are happy with your current role and team involvement within the project or if you would like to do something additional or different. Currently you are on the Prussian Settlement team. If you would like a change, you can check on the Australia Project page to see what other options there are.

It would also be great to hear any feedback and any suggestions that you have to improve the project. On a practical note, if you are a member of the google group, are you receiving messages ok? Also do you have Australia as one of the tags you are following on the G2G? Don't forget to add it in if you don't have that tag yet.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards

Margaret Haining Membership Coordinator

Hi Tracey. I have linked parents to your Johannes Gottfried August Gregurke but have doubts about the estimated birth year - the marriage record says he was 46 (which makes his birth around 1885) and a birth record says 10-Apr-1878. Do you have a source for 1895?

Thanks, Scott

Hi Tracy,

I'm just following up on my earlier message on your profile regarding the Prussian Settlement Project.

Could you let me know if you are still interested in working on Prussian Settlement in Australia? If so, I'll join you up to the Australia Project as well. Thanks for all your wonderful work on WikiTree for Australia.

Kind Regards, Margaret Haining, Membership Coordinator.

Hello, Tracy

As part of a revitalization effort for the New Zealand Project, we are checking-in with members to see if they are planning to remain active and make project-specific contributions in the upcoming months.

If you have other obligations at the moment and would like to be removed from the project at this time, you will always be welcome to rejoin if you find yourself with more time and interest later.

All of us at WikiTree would like to thank you for your contributions and hope that you are enjoying exploring your roots.

Please respond by commenting on my profile or sending a private message. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi Tracy,

I am currently doing check-ins for the Australia project, and noticed that you have been contributing to the Prussian Settlement project, but are not a member of the Australia Project. Are you still interested in working on Prussian Settlement in Australia? If so, I'll join you up to the Australia Project as well. Thanks for all your wonderful work on WikiTree for Australia.

Kind Regards, Margaret Haining, Membership Coordinator.

Hi Tracy,

I've just joined the Ireland Project and saw your name. Can you offer any tips for someone trying to check out whether their family was a beneficiary of Ulster plantation?

Hi Tracy,

Thanks for choosing to remain in the Ireland Project. The Ireland Project (previously the Irish Roots Project) has now changed its structure into Teams. We require everyone with the Ireland Badge to be a member of at least one Team or Sub-Team and our google group. See for details. The Teams are :-

1. Categories Team
2. Counties Team
3. Managed Profiles Team
4. Membership Team
5. Profile Improvement Team
6. Topics Team
7. Diaspora

? Can you let me know which team(s) you’d like to join.

Many thanks,

Hi Tracy,

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,



Thank you so much for responding to our check-in. We are delighted that you wish to continue contributing to the Connectors Project. Below is a quick checklist for active members. The project leaders would like you to make sure you have done the following: 1) Checked the Project Page for ways to contribute. 2) Added Connectors to the tags you follow.

Thank you! Michelle~ Volunteer Coordinator
