I sent you a check-in message several days ago about the 1776 Project to ask you about your past and continued involvement but have not yet heard back from you. Do you still want to be in the project?

If I don’t hear from you in a week or so, I’ll assume that you’ve moved on to other things, but you’re most welcome to re-join the project at any time.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Best wishes,

Betty -- 1776 Project Leader

posted by Betty (Skelton) Norman

It's time for a 1776 Project check-in! Please respond within the next two weeks to let me know if you want to continue as a member of the project. We'd like to know:

  • If you are on the right team or if you'd like to make a change. It's a requirement that every 1776 Project member is a part of one of the project's teams, so if you're not assigned to a team, let us know which team you'd like to join.
  • What you think the project is doing well, and what changes you'd like to see us make?

Please 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 two weeks, we will assume you are no longer interested in participating in the 1776 Project, and your badge will be removed. If you wish to reapply for membership later, we will be happy to have you back.

Many thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Betty,

Sorry for not responding earlier.

I am afraid I don't have time for this project in light of the other projects I am leading.

Best regards, S

posted by S (Hill) Willson
Thank you for the response and for your contributions while with the 1776 Project. I understand the demands for your time, but if you'd like to come back one day, perhaps in a leadership role here.... you have only to say the word!

Very Best Regards,

Peter Baron - bio addition - Could you clarify what you mean by no sources? There appear to be sources listed on the page, but as I don't have access and didn't add them, I'm wondering what the issue is.

Hi S!

Thanks for contributing to Puritan Great Migration profiles over the last six months. Every little bit helps, so please keep those edits coming!

Like all WikiTree projects we check in with team members twice per year and it's that time again. Please respond within the next two weeks to let me know:

  1. If you'd like to continue as a PGM project team member
  2. If you're happy with the team you're on (Research and/or Profile Improvement) or if you'd like to make a change
  3. Optionally, what you like since the reboot back in May or what you think could be improved. This could be something about Discord, or Google Groups, or managed profile spreadsheets, or challenge participation or really anything. If you like everything the way it is, you can let me know that too :)

If you'd like to tell me about a particular project or family you're working on, I'd love to hear about that as well.

Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks!

S: I can't begin to thank you enough for all the help you've given me in straightening out the profiles for George Lowell and his wife (6th GGrandparents to me). You went WAY above and beyond anything I'd expect. THANK YOU.

You’re very welcome Barbara. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions on finding info.

I adopted Samuel Sawyer (abt.1637-) as I noticed it claimed to be a closer relative than may be the truth. and I didn't easily find sources. I see now that I already had "cousin" Samuel Sawyer (1646-1718) on my personal tree as my 1C8R through John Sawyer (1648-1722). Thanks for reminding me to look at this. Sawyer-115 is an ancestor of my step-grandmother, who is also twice my 2nd cousin twice removed.

I am checking in on behalf of the 1776 Project to announce the new project membership requirements and to verify that you are still interested in being a member of the project. All project members are being asked to join one of the project teams and also to make at least one project contribution every 6 months. We are also asking all project members to join the project's Google Group for project communications.

If you are interested in remaining with the Project, please reply to this comment or send me a message, request to join the Google Group, and let us know what team you would like to participate on.

We really appreciate your contributions on WikiTree, and thank you for all your hard work. If you have any questions, please ask. We would also love to hear any feedback you may have for the project.

If we don't hear back from you we will assume that you no longer wish to participate in the project and if so, you could rejoin at any time as is convenient for you.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Hi SJ,

I don't know how much time I'll have to work on 1776 due to PGM commitments, but I'll sign up for the Research team. Thanks, S

Great! We'll get you added to the team list.

Thanks for discovering Alexander Creighton was shown as "Still Living." I don't know how that happened. I usually check the circle that says "Exact/Certain."

Do you know why it shows Sarah Burt's husband (Alexander) as "Unknown" on her profile. I have entered all of Alexander's information that I have and it should show him on her profile.


Joe Morgan - Piedmont, OK

posted by Joe Morgan
He appears now with his name on Sarah's profile. It was probably just a timing thing; not all changes on WikiTree are reflected instantaneously.

Thank you for fixing his profile. S

posted by S (Hill) Willson
The William Barnes merger you proposed is definitely needed! I was so busy trying to correct his profile that I didn't think of looking for another possible profile for him. Thanks!
posted by Darrell Larocque
Thank you for helping to clean up the recent Van Orden mess. Emma :-)

May I ask about your interest in the following profile and how you know the merge does not represent the same person?


Thanks, David

Hi Sharon, I see you closed the PGM Beyond group. I had wanted to join, looks like there are only 3 members. I’ve been working mostly with that type of profile who went to New York, since I have several on my tree. If it’s permanently closed I’ll just continue with NY based profiles when I find them.

We want to thank you very much for your participation in this weekend's Clean-a-thon! Your 814 contributions helped bring our team to almost 7000 corrections made, which is an amazing number for a small team. As a token of thanks for helping our team, please feel free to add this participation sticker to your profile (as always, below the Biography line). You'll need to add curly brackets/braces { like these, but doubled } around the following template:
Clean-a-Thon|team=Team Twisted Thistles|year=2021|suggestions=814

If you enjoyed working to make repairs like these, please consider joining the Data Doctors Project, a group of members who work on these improvements on an ongoing basis.

Thank you for correcting the birth place of Tristram Fall (abt.1770-abt.1845). It was a great catch; and I appreciate your time on this profile. I'd love to know how spotted the error. Would you beg willing to email me? I'd love to learn something new. Also, if you are welling to share, are we related; and if so how? Thanks, again. Pam Pamela (Hutchins) Belanger
Pam - Tristram showed up on a list of profiles from throughout WikiTree that had USA in the birthplace before it was the USA. There is a way you can run an inquiry to find errors and suggestions for your own profiles, where you could find more suggestions to fix. You can find it from the My WikiTree menu, and select Suggestions. Click on Suggestions and it will open another page where you will see for all the profiles you manage, the suggestions of things to fix. I have found it to be very helpful. Feel free to ask further questions, if it is unclear. It doesn't look like I am related to Tristram, by the way :)
posted by S (Hill) Willson
Thank You for your great and prompt response. It was very instructional. I will checkout my suggestions; although I dread to think what I might find there. Pam
Congrats on the shiny new blue badge ;-)

Hi, cousin S.

You are on the trusted list for Mary Platts Eckles (Platts-5). I am descended from her brother Samuel (Platts-77) and Sarah (Unknown-263624).

Thank you for the email you sent to me. The reason for the differences in the dates is because the dates I added are estimated. Most additions are from a family Bible and are either hard to read or information is lacking. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello S Willson, I wish to thank you for your work on PGM Beyond New England profiles. Also I would be interested in knowing if you would like to remain on the PGM Beyond New England list.

Regarding the merge request between May-308 and Mayo-1142: You asked for a quality source between the Newbury Joseph Mayo who married Sarah Short and the Newbury Joseph Mayo who married widow Jane Lunt: if you look to the Will of Joseph Mayo-308 you can see that his wife JANE is recorded.  :-)

"On January 7, 1714, Joseph Mayo of Newbury, cordwainer, appeared before a justice of the peace in Essex, to give his authorization for a grant deed in which Joseph Mayo sold land to Joseph Greenleaf. The deed was recorded November 8, 1715. His wife, Jane, also appeared before the same justice of the peace and voluntarily gave up her right of dower or thirds."

Hello! Here ya go.

Hi, I saw your post on the page of Elizabeth (Furness)(Browning) Palmer. She is named as the spouse of Daniel Browning in his will (which also names her parents, Rev. Ralph Furness and Rebecca (born Blennerhassett).) Extracted English parish records also show the marriage-I've since added the source to both Daniel and Elizabeth's pages.
