Philip Gale participated with Legacy Heirs during the 2019 Source-a-Thon, adding some sources to profiles.

I was born in 1959 in London, England. I went to Hull University but have otherwise always lived in London. I married in 1989 and have two great children. My son completed his degree and is now working in recruitment. My daughter has completed her Musical Theatre training and is now auditioning and working.

My main hobby is genealogy and I spend a lot of my spare time researching my family tree and sometimes helping others. These days it is much easier because of the ever increasing online records. I find that cemetery records can be particularly useful and also touching since they represent the last physical existence of the deceased.

My father's family came over to London's East End at the very start of the 20th Century from Russia/Poland.

My mother came to England from Vienna, Austria on the brink of WW2. I have found branches of my mother's family all over the world. In Europe, many were lost in the holocaust. In the U.S., I have discovered links back to the American Civil War.

Hi Philip,

I haven’t heard back from you about the break up of the United Kingdom Project. I hope all is well with you. I assume you don’t wish to join any of the country-level projects at present, and will go ahead and remove the United Kingdom badge. If you wish to join England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland in the future, you would be most welcome to do so via the respective G2G sign-up post.

Many thanks for all your contributions,

Susie :-)

Hello, Philip,

On behalf of the Military and War Project Leaders, we are doing a six-month check-in with members.

First, we want to thank you for your past participation in the project. We appreciate your desire to honor your ancestors for their service to their countries, or even for your service, wherever in the world. We hope that your membership has enhanced your WikiTree experience.

Please let me know, by commenting on my profile or sending a private message, if you are still active in the project, and if so, in a general sense how you may have contributed to the main project or any sub-projects within the last couple months.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Deb ~ Volunteer Coordinator

Hi Philip,

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,
