Hi Lori,

I left a message for you about a week ago to let you know about the restructuring of the Wales Project into new teams and to ask for your team(s) selection and e-mail address so I can add you to the project’s Google group. I’ve not yet heard back from you, so hope you are well, and that everything is ok in your part of the world.

Understanding that we are living in unusual times, I will hang on for another week to make sure that you do indeed want to stay in the project, after which, if I don’t hear from you, I’ll go ahead and remove you. You would, of course, be most welcome to rejoin at any time.

Best wishes,

Susie :-)

Hi Susan, I thought about this for a while. I am just too busy. I just did two DNA tests and right now leaning the ins and outs, connecting matches, and researching my tree is an all consuming endeavor for me right now. That being said, Wales is where a large amount of my matches are coming from on my father's side. I have been busy sorting out Davis, Williams, Thomas and Jones families in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania and in Glamorganshire, Monmouthshire and surrounding communities. I'm back in the early 1800's which is as far as I have gotten. I need to study the area and learn about the families there. I can try to step in when time allows. Since those are the areas of my focus, I can best serve there. I will look through the project now, and get back to you. My best email to use is: since I can connect to Google Groups there.

The Glamorgan Team would be the best for me to Join. I have direct ancestors from there as well as ancestors in extended families. I will make it a point to check in daily. Lori

Hi Lori,

As you will have seen, we have been doing some restructuring in the Wales Project and are now organising ourselves into different teams. Please have a look at the new project pages, and let me know which team(s) you would like to be in.

Please can you also send me your e-mail address? I can then make sure you are introduced to your Team Leaders, are in the Google Group, and receive an invitation to join our Discord server.

Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the Wales Project that you respond to these check-ins.

Many thanks,

Susie, Wales Project Co-Leader

Lori (my response:) Thanks for the information!! I've noticed I was in the dark about just what was going on, though I ran into "free-space" pages fairly frequently. I'll use your definition as I go along now, so really! mine is a big THANKS. You've contributed and that helps me be at work, but improved.

THE ORIGINAL MESSAGE TO Lori, Need a definition here: What is a free space page, and what are its legitimate uses? If you want the whole crowd of us who agree, then satisfy the basic need for definitions. It's a basic of debate and certainly many others don't agree with you, with us.

I'll sign it only if you define your terms. Yes it is a BASIC REQUIREMENT when people differ.

Hi Lori,

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,

Hi Lori,

I have added you to the google group, so you should have access. Let me know how you go.

I want to give you the correct answer so I am going to think about your question and get back to you soon.

Thank you for sharing your ancestors story. It is fascinating! And you are lucky that you have living relatives that have so many great memories and stories to share with you. It is great they have you contacted relatives aswell. Good job!

I want to look into the difference between high and low german now too, I might post in the google group and see if anyone can shed some light on it for us :)

Thanks Lori, for your interest in helping out the German Roots project. What information do you know about your grandfather at the moment?

Hi Lori,

As long as the profiles have at least one source which comes from Quaker Records, feel free to add the project to the Trusted Lists of the profile.

Thanks for asking,

Hi Lori, thanks for your note.

To add the monthly meetings to the profiles, use the Categories button, then type the name of the meeting. If you don't find the meeting you are looking for, please let me know.

Here is a link to the Quakers Project profile page instructions to associate a profile with a project.

There is a Free-Space page for the book you are using as a source. It has a link to the digital image and provides a sample citation that, if used, will link those profiles to the free-space page.

Hope this helps,

How's everything going?

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.
