Hi Donald,

Per your question to my comment on John Miner-12, Anderson's Great Migration series shows this as a baptism date, as does Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988 for John Minor, Records Of The First Church In Charlestown, Massachusetts, 1632-1789. Sharon

Hi Donald, thank you for your interest in the Collaborative Profile of the Week. For two years, as a group we improved one profile a week. This, however, is no longer an active project/challenge. We did create some great examples of profiles

Hello Donald!

I am working with the DNA Project. I Noticed you have something a bit amiss in your GEDmatch numbers. Would you verify them please? Your FTDNA GEDmatch number would begin with the letter T and Ancestry tests would begin with an A.

Once you find the right number(s) you can update your GEDmatch ID number(s) by clicking on the My WikiTree Menu at the top right of your profile page, then click on DNA confirmation.

Then click on the DNA test tab at the top of that page, then click the edit or enter more detail button on the right. Thanks! Emma :-)

Welcome to the DNA Project:

Please make sure each bit of DNA test information is added to the actual test participant's profile, not someone else's like your own. To make cousin connections, WikiTree needs to see the FamilyTree tab. Check that your Privacy on your profile is set to "Private with Public Family Tree" as a minimum. (Living minors should have an Unlisted privacy level.)

If you have not already done so, please set your preferences for your Tags Followed to include DNA and other terms of interest to you:

As you add your family lines and connect to the big WikiTree, you may find new cousins. Use the Relationship calculator to see if you are related to me, Cooper-1 with

Hello Donald, I saw that you have rejected the merger of Bowsher-12 and Boucher-140.

I proposed the merge on Bowsher-12 and Boucher-140 because they refer to the same individual that is the subject of Frank Burkhardt's "The Boucher Family". For some reason, the uploaded of Bowsher-12 had (previous to uploading) mistakenly confused Bowsher-12 with another unknown individual giving some really outlandish vital dates. These dates make him 100 years younger than his spouse and 60 years younger than his child and are an obvious error. I could have edited the dates of Bowsher-12 to be more clear a match, but thought this an unnecessary step. The spouses of the two are also duplicates which need to be merged.

Eureka !

Thank you Donald Gradeless for sharing and your superb editing of the "" resource.

I have for years collected these documents from many scattered sources. It is magnificent to have this scholarly, professional and highly detailed format collected and organized for effective research. I'm certain that you have read Margaret Kimball Brown 's book, "History As They Lived It, A Social History of Prairie du Rocher, Illinois" that contains references of the good nature and allied military relationship between Jean Baptiste Barbeau and George Rogers Clark.

I appreciate your professional service and your sharing of this excellent work.

In Regard The Best To You and Yours ... JSGB ( Baraboo de Barbeau dit Boisdore)
