I am just wondering how you get the little flag on your profile that says: Russ Gunther has German ancestry. I see things on a lot of peoples profiles, but I just haven't figured out how to add things like that. Can you please explain? Thank you, -Noah

I hope you are doing well. I noticed where you mentioned we are 25th cousins. LOL. Actually I have my doubts about the accuracy of that line (Warner-Sotherton). I really wish it were true though. It would open up a very historical genealogy trail. I need to see more evidence. Kind regards, James

I've dropped a message about how to find and sign the Honor Code in the Public Comments on both Barry and Bonni's profiles. Bonni hadn't received the new member How To pages either so I added a PS with that information.
Since both of their accounts were confirmed by you before they Volunteered, they are out of the loop as far as the follow up messages usually posted by the Greeters Project. The only way people are in included in our on-boarding process is for them to volunteer prior to being confirmed.
If you expect to be confirming more members in the future, would you consider joining the Greeters Project and learning the complete on-boarding process. We could train you and then let your status be reserve standby.
