Hi Jenny, I have posted a comment on the page for Lilla Mary Shrimpton formerly Grainger. Although no relation to me whatsoever, I did stumble across her whilst looking for someone else. Anyway, it is just another small piece for your 'jigsaw'. Best wishes, Mike

Hi Jenny,

The Australia Project leadership team are carrying out our annual check-in to see how you are going in the project. We'd really like to thank you for all your work on Australian profiles over the past year! We think we've made great progress in 2020/21 with your assistance.

Please could you reply to this message, to let us know if you would like to stay on in the project and if you are happy with your current role and team involvement. If you would like to do something additional or different, take a look on the Australia Project page to see what other options there are.

It would also be great to get any feedback or suggestions that you have to improve the project.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards

Margaret Haining Membership Coordinator

Hi Jenny,

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 Assisted and Bounty Immigrants 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 Jenny,

Thank you for the complement. Occasionally I take the time away from genealogy and ancestors to work on just a county history.

It is refreshing to just investigate the history of the formation, and all.

Hello, Jenny,

Thank you so much for responding to our check-in for the Miltary and War Project.

We are sorry to hear that you are not currently active, but we understand that life happens and interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to the branches they are currently building. 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.

Hello, Jenny,

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 Military and War Project. We appreciate your desire to honor your ancestors for their service to their countries, or even for your own service, wherever in the world. We hope that your membership has enhanced your WikiTree experience.

Please let me know if you are still active. and if so, in which ways you have contributed to the main project or a sub-project within the last two months.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

You were already member of The Great War project.

I did award you the Military and War project badge as it is the umbrella project for all the wars.

Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the projects and the guidelines we have in place.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz, Edie!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, coordinating with others is essential. I see you have already joined a project Anzacs which is great!!

Would you be also interested in Australia Project, leaders Paul Bech and Irene Dillon

If you have other questions, just ask on my page. I am here to help.

Regarding your question posted on Cox-5316, DNA Connections populate automatically and the profiles who are listed as having DNA Connections do not receive messages posted on those pages. Only the profile manager will receive those messages. Also, WikiTreers research whatever they want to and don't always pay attention to ancestors they may have DNA connections to. You can research these profiles, if you want to. I hope this helps.

Wish you a Happy New Year. May 2018 bring you all you need to be happy.

Congratulation for adding your contributions in December. Whatever the quantity of your contributions, they all count. As we always say "Quality is better than quantity" to make a great family tree.

Thank you for being a Wikitreer,

Jenny, welcome. What country are you in, I'm in Australia. Also I'm new to Wikitree. My Bell's were Melbourne based and I think the source of my information was a relative called Beryl Auty, I suspect long gone now. There has been a lot of strangeness and division in the family over the years. I met very few of my grandmother's family. I suspect they disapproved of her.
