Hi Mel,

I sent you a message a week ago to let you know about the exciting changes in the US Southern Colonies Project to ask you about your continued involvement but have no yet heard back from you. Do you still want to be in the project? If so, which team(s) would you like to be on and please can you private message me with your e-mail address so I can get you added to the project’s Google Group?

If I don’t hear from you by the same time next week I’ll assume that you’ve moved on to other things but you’d be most welcome to re-join the project at any time.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Best wishes,

Susie - US Southern Colonies Co-Leader

Sorry for being so late with my reply.

At this time in life I find I do not have the time to help out on a regular basis.

I hope this finds you and yours done my well

Hi Mel,

As you may have seen, we have been doing some restructuring in the US Southern Colonies Project and are now organising ourselves into different teams.

Please can you also send me your e-mail address. I can then make sure you are introduced to your Team Leaders and are in the Google Group.

Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the US Southern Colonies Project that you respond to these check-ins. We’re really excited for the future of the project and hope that you decide to be a part of it with us moving forwards.

Many thanks,

Hi Mel,

It has been a couple of weeks since we contacted you about your participation in the Southern Colonies Project. As we haven't heard from you, we are following up to make sure you wish to remain a member.

We understand that interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to their ancestors. If this is the case for you, please let us know.

If we do not hear back from you within the week, we will assume you have moved on to other things for the moment and remove you from the project. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.

Mel,

Have contacted William Foster Jr if a subcategory for early West Virginia settlers late 1700's to 1863 regarding location of birth/death/marriage/other events in their lives. Some came to one area and even though the name changed they seemed to have lived in various counties but in reality it was because the name changed with creation of the 55. Some from parts of one. This will help in data area and in bio (West) Virginia of the state location. Started a conversation under Genealogy help on G2G forum. Added source for list of counties and formaton info. Sharon
