Hi Kirk,

It is once again time for our annual Scotland Project check-in. Please respond within the next three weeks to let us know:

•If you would like to continue as a project member •If you are happy with your current teams or would you like to join a different team •How much time per month (on average) you spend working on Scottish profiles •Anything you’d like the Scotland Project to do more of in the future

You can respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. If we don’t hear from you within the next three weeks we’ll assume your interests have changed or you are no longer able to participate in the Scotland Project at this time, and your badge will be removed. If your circumstances change later you will be welcome to reapply for membership.

On behalf of the Scotland Project, I would like to thank you for your commitment to the project's goals. Every single contribution you make helps improve Scottish profiles!

Sheena - Scotland Project Membership Coordinator

Hi Kirk

I haven't heard back from you regarding the Scotland Project check-in. I hope you are well and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi Kirk!

It's time for our annual Scotland Project check-in!

This year we are hoping to learn what our membership would like to accomplish over the next 12 months. In case you aren't aware, this year is WikiTree's ""Year of Connections"" and the Project's leadership would like to contribute to this in as many ways as possible.

We would appreciate it if you would share your thoughts and ideas with us on how we can accomplish this goal. We would also appreciate it if you would provide some feedback on our existing goals, including:

  • If you have not yet signed up to help on one of the project's teams, which team(s) would you be interested in joining?
  • How often should we provide a Project Newsletter?
  • Have you participated in the Tartan Trail? If not, is this something you'd be interested in doing?
  • Do you have a question(s) that we could add to a Frequently Asked Questions page?
  • Any suggestions or ideas you have on ways to improve the Scotland Project in general

We continue to communicate with our Project members via Google Group (official) and Discord (unofficial), as well as G2G. You may also reach out to any of the Project leaders via WikiTree's internal messaging system at any time.

Thank you for all you do to help the Scotland Project become a knowledge hub for Scottish genealogical research! We wish you all the best in 2022!

Sincerely, Amy Gilpin on behalf of the Scotland Project Leaders

Just checking in to make sure you are doing OK, have not seen you working anything on WikiTree recently, let me know if I can help.

Hi! I just adopted a space page that I think was created from information that had been on the category page of the same name (which you created). Whether or not it's your work, let me know if you'd like to take over as manager:

(It seems there's also a space-page project, if you were interested: Regicides of King Charles I.)

Cheers, Liz

Hi Liz - go ahead and manage the space, thanks!

It’s time for a Project check-in!

Scotland Project Leaders check in with you at least once a year to see how you are doing. With the changes happening around the world, we understand that life is hectic right now.

What are you planning to work on for the Scotland Project this year? Are you happy with the team(s) you part of, or would you like to make some changes?

This time round, we’re also looking for feedback on the use of Google Group and Discord. Do you use one or both of these? If you don’t use either of them, what is the best way to ensure you receive Project communications? If you would like to join us on Google Group or Discord, let us know in your response.

Hi, I notice you have just removed Isabel St. Leger from parents John St. Leger and Margery Donet. John and Margery did indeed have a daughter Isabel who married Sir Thomas Melbourne. Source for Isabel is Stemmata de Leodegaria, British Library. Compiled by Rev. Edward F. St. Leger of Kirby-in-Lindsay, Lincolnshire, 1867.

Regards Rose St.Leger-May

posted by Anonymous Russell
That source I cannot find anywhere but a different Stemmata (Stemmata Robertson et Durdin) has that pedigree.

However, she's not mentioned in his will so my guess is if she existed and married Sir Thomas Melbourne (who I can't verify exists), she prob. died before her father w/o any issue.

We also have our team Chat page posted here.

Hope to see you there!

Hello Kirk,

My name is Sarah and I’m the Project Coordinator for the Scotland Project. As you may have heard, we have merged the Scottish Clans project into the Scotland Project. I am contacting you today to find out if you are interested in continuing with us under this new format. If you would like to go forward on the Scottish Clans Team, please reply and let me know which clans you have been working on or would like to work on. I look forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,

Sarah Mason, Scotland PC

Hi - I'm not really working on specific clans actually. Most of the time I end up editing profiles who are both British Aristocrats and Clan members - it makes sense in most cases to document the clan so I use the project template. I'll keep doing this w/ the Scotland project. Thanks for reaching out!

Hello Kirk I saw a question you had posted about the surname Pake and wondered if we might be related. My grandfathers name was Lawrence Amos Pake and I have been enjoying researching the name.

Where is the information of Salisbury being a herder Wales?

I find that information for William Salisbury in Massachusetts as a herder and a “3rd rate citizen” but took that to mean he did not pay his own passage and had no lands granted to him from the crown and was not a part of the Plymouth colony population.

Thank you so much as I can’t find it on my own. Patti Hewlett Salsbury Family Line

P.S. The Magna Carta Project co-manages Olive's profile with the PGM Project, which takes precedence over the Magna Carta Project. You'll want to coordinate with that project before making any edits. (We co-manage many Gateway Ancestors' profiles with the PGM Project, which generally covers the Gateway and a generation or two of the Gateway's descendants, while the Magna Carta Project covers the Gateway's trail to a Surety Baron).

Cheers, Liz

posted by Liz (Noland) Shifflett
Hi Kirk! I'll add the Magna Carta Project section to Olive's profile to note that you are the profile's Gateway Guardian. Here's the coding for a sticker that you can add to your profile (copy/paste from the e-mail version of this post). Feel free to change the display of your name to suit. Thanks!

Hi Kirk, You asked why the s was dropped from the Clement surname, it wasn't, it is a common error to add the s to Clement, I had 7 sports trophies with the Clements spelling. I am a direct descendent of Gregory Clement. If you read the death warrant for Charles the 1st of England you will see that Gregory spelled it as Clement.

Hi Kirk,

I’m working with Eowyn to check-in with everyone holding the Project Coordinator badge to make sure we have the most up-to-date information. As a Project Coordinator badge holder, please can you let me know which project(s) you are currently coordinating and if you have a specific role as coordinator in those projects?

Many thanks,

Sorry Kirk, Even though I am the manager for Fulk FitzWarine I now have to have a Pre-1500 certificate that I don't have. Someone else made the mess with the last name and I'm not able to correct it nor am I able to add you.
posted by Kathy (Brown) Lamm
Kirk, you've added info to Thomas Estcourt,, but you haven't cited a source.
Thank you for catching the error on Williamina Wemyss Moore's heritage. I've found that it appears she's quite possibly the daughter of David Wemyss, 4th Earl of Wemyss and Lady Anne Wemyss. I have conflicting sources, of course, so my lineage might just end up at a dead end here, who knows?

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,

Guy Constantineau - Wikitree leader
