Why hello there! First of all, I am VERY sorry for how bad I am at keeping this up! I have health issues and was able to do a lot of work around it, but I got to a point where I just wasn't able to keep up anymore. I had been working on a grand plan/project to make a profile for everyone in the 1850 census in Knox County and actually got pretty far if I do say so myself, but then not being able to keep up turned into a sort of mess and going forward I'm going to be more selective with adopting profiles and might remove myself as manager from a lot of these profiles that I am not directly connected to.

I'm not sure how much time I'll be able to spend working on here and after what happened, I'm hesitant to commit to much. I've been having some emails get lost in my spam folder or I forget to reply to them, so I apologize if I missed you and thank you in advance for your patience! I'll try to do better with merges and hopefully being more selective with being a manager will cut back with me needing to do that.

Please note that if I make a profile, that doesn't mean that I know a lot (or anything) about that person and am a lot of the time making a place for a person with more information to be able to fill it out. I want to "populate" Wiki Tree so when ancestors or more closely related people find it, they have it set up already and maybe I'll have found something they didn't already have? I remember when I first started here and I plugged in a few people I had on my family tree and what a blessing it was to find all the other connections I had and was able to find how I was related to other people I wouldn't have known about. I LOVE how Wiki Tree works!

What I'm doing now

I recently had my DNA tested for fun and entered that into Wiki Tree's system. I don't know too much about what I found and am still playing around with it, but if you know more and there's something you would like to know more about, please do let me know :) I have been working on my Knox County connections since that part of the family has more brick walls than my other lines. When I thought about getting back to work here, I have thought about branching out more and working on other lines. Again, I don't know how reliable I can be so I'm sorry again if I'm not able to keep up! Also, I'm not an expert and I am so sorry that I probably don't have answers to your questions! I'm learning along with you all :)

I am sorry for not replying sooner and also for the frustration I am causing you. When I created the profiles, I set the security to "open" so that anyone could edit them. I see that you and others have done work since then so I'm not sure what there is for me to unlock? My health is always in flux so I knew there probably would be a time when I would not be able to keep working the way I was.

Again, I apologize for being unresponsive and not more active. I wasn't taken away by choice and I still have plans to do more work. I need a light at the end of the tunnel and something to work for. Right now my biggest obstacle is that my eyes were damaged and I am trying different treatments in hopes of being able to look at a screen for more than a few minutes. I'm not looking for pity, I just want you to know that I haven't been blowing you off. I really do want to help you and it makes me very upset to know that I have caused you this frustration.

I did something where I think I added you to the trusted list for the people you requested, did I do that correctly? Do you need me to do more?

First of all, I am so sorry that I didn't reply sooner; I could have sworn I did, however I did get to a point where my eyes were just not having any more on that day! So I wanted to give a big belated "thank you" for this very kind comment and also your prayers! Also, thank you so much for being so patient with me!

When I was looking around on that day I was trying to update myself on WikiTree and all the things that have changed since I was really active. A lot has changed indeed! All of this made me more excited about coming back and doing more but alas, I guess that will have to be put on hold for now. It would be lovely if WikiTree came up with a nighttime mode. Anyway, just warning you that I might have trouble understanding some new features right away and again I want to assure you that I'm not intentionally making things more difficult.

Happy hunting and blessings from one B to another ;)

It's been a week since I first contacted you about the Categorization project. If I don't hear from you by August 14, I will assume that you don't wish to be part of the project any longer and will remove the badge. I thank you and look forward to hearing from you.

Natalie, Categorization

Hey! I would be happy for any help on Lonas/Yoast etc. I imported an early version of my mother's research (Helen Sharpe - She did a great deal of the find a grave memorials), and have since updated my computer and can't access her newer records until the Reunion software catches up with my Mac! So YES! Any help you can offer would be great and vise versa.
Hey! Stop by The Tennessee Project. I could use your skills in Knox County, as a county manager. Let me know if you're interested!!!!
