Hi R,

I’ve not heard back from you so presume you don’t want to continue in the Canada Project at this time so have gone ahead and removed your badge. If that changes anytime you would be most welcome to re-join in the future.

Susie :-)

Hi R,

I haven’t yet heard back from you to say whether or not you’d like to continue in the Canada Project. Please can you let me know if you’d like to stay, what team(s) you’d like to be in, and let me know your e-mail address so I can add you to the project Google Group? If I haven’t heard back from you by this time next week I’ll assume you no longer want to be in the project and go ahead and remove you. You would, of course, be most welcome to re-join at any time.

Many thanks,

Hi R,

Greg Lavoie, Dave Rutherford and I have put a lot of work into restructuring the Canada Project. Have a look at the new project page.

You'll see that we've changed the project name to the Canada Project and the badge will be changed shortly. We've done this in order to provide lots of ways for people to contribute to Canadian Profiles. We've also moved towards a team approach with top level teams being lead by Project Coordinators and sub-teams being lead by Team Leaders.

Would you like to continue in the Canada Project, and if so, which team(s) would you like to be on?

Let me know if you have any questions. Once I hear back from you I'll add you to the Google group and get you set up in your team(s).

Hello R Holmes,

I have ancestors from Acadia and Quebec with British Isles heritage. Have you done any y-dna testing? I would be interest to know if we share the same y-dna haplogroup. Let me know if you are interested in testing. I am also a member of the Holmes One Name study here on Wiki.

Thanks, Ryan Holmes

Hello R,

I noticed you have changed privacy settings for some of your ancestors. Please read the Privacy Help Page. Ancestors from even just a couple generations back will be shared by potentially hundreds of descendants. So, they should be set to a Privacy level that allows for collaboration.

Hi R.,

I see you are working on merges. Please review our Matching and Merging FAQ to understand your responsibilities in doing merges.

During a merge, the text from the merged-away profile is appended to the end of the text of the merged-into profile. After a merge, you will need to clean up the text by removing duplicate information and consolidating what is left leaving the profile with a single Biography section and a single Sources section.

The Help page on Biographies has a lot of great information on what to include and what to omit in a Biography.

Please also review all other family members for potential duplicates and review any conflicts in parents.

If you have any questions, just let me know.

Anyone looking for info on the family tree of Amedee Adelard Desmarais and his wife Honorine Valerie Lebeau or his son Adelard Desmarais who married Annette Gagnon, has come to the right place, please check out the tree starting at "Anonymous Desmarais" It goes back to colonial days and the Von Marets or Des Marets family goes back to Royalty, as do many other lines in the tree. Also the trees of Oliver Gagnon and his wife Albertine Lagasse who were the parents of Annette Gagnon, although not finished still hold a generations of information also leading to royalty.

Please hit the thank you button and like the page on google. If you have any info on this tree it would be appreciated.

Does anyone know of the Atchison also Aitcheson family of Blantyre, South Lanarkshire Scotland.

Particularly Daniel Atchison and his wife Janet Blackwood born sometime in the 1860s having a son named John and moving to New England, RI and MA.

Hi R, and welcome to WikiTree.

You tagged your research interest in Scotland. I wanted to let you know that we have two linked Projects you might be interested in Scotland Project and Scottish Clans Project. If you would like to join either or both of these projects once you have settled into WikiTree just let me know.

Good luck with your research. Maria

I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Participation in a project is strongly encouraged for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles. Be sure to also check out our Volunteer Hub to see our projects that really need new members!

Let me know, and I can help you figure out if there's a project that might interest you. Welcome aboard, we are glad to have you!
