Carol Ann and I are, both ill. She is 78; I am 76. Both us appreciate all that you have done . Green Berry is Carol Ann's waldrop ancestor.
posted by Howard Waldrop
I am so very sorry you are both ill! You will both be in my prayers. Green is a great place to start. There is much to be done on this line. I am afraid that works keeps me tied up more than I would like. It gives me a great deal of satisfaction to work on the Waldrop line so I will give it as much time as I possibly can. Thanks for entrusting me with this!

You need a program like Ancestral Quest or Family tree maker for the GEDCOM. Get a program such Ancestral Quest ( if memory serves , Ancestral quest has a FREE basic program)

This is the link to the line of Green Berry. Also, I emailed you a "paper copy" ( off line)

I am confident that Carol Ann and i will be ok.

Hi Paula,

It’s time for our annual Ireland Project check-in! Please respond within the next two weeks to let me know:

  • If you are happy with the team you’re on or if you’d like to make a change. It is now required that all members with an Ireland project badge work on at least one of the project’s team(s), so if you’ve not yet signed up please do so in your reply to this check-in.
  • What you think the project is doing well, and what (if any) changes you would like to see us make? Are there any teams you would like to become more active in?
  • Would you be interested in helping to work on an Ireland Project newsletter?
  • Please give us some 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 for us to ensure you receive project communications? If you would like to join us on either one, Just let us know in your response and we will get you signed up.

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 Ireland 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!

Sincerely, Jen Hutton, on behalf of the Ireland Project

Hi Paula,

I hope you are keeping well. I am working on the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA) female pilots. Please can you set up an ATA space page for me linked to Women in WWII.

Unlike the Women Airforce Service Pilots, this was a civilian group attached to the Royal Air Force, do you know which sticker I should use for those that died on active service?

Thank you.

Hi Paula,I am trying to write nicer biographies for my grandfather and great grandfather for Memorial Day. I have just done my first sticker, WWII, and the flag isn't showing up. Can you give me any tips? The profile is Edward Chaillet II and here is what I entered...
Image:United States of America
Corporal Paula J served in the United States Army in World War II
Service started: 14 Nov 1941
Unit(s): Battery "D", 1st Battalion; Battery "C", 549th Antiaircraft Artillery Automatic Weapons Battalion
Service ended: 25 Nov 1945
I tried it with and without the last "image=United States of America" but can't think of something else that is in the wrong spot or has bad spacing and hope that you might see right away what is amiss. Thank you for your time and expertise.

Hi Paula! I know you're really active, but... I'm trying to get the membership lists for US Southern Colonies Project squared away and I have a lot of "unmatched" info for you, and I also don't have a record of your ever responding to the project's checkins (I've only been involved in the January 2021 checkin... I just double-checked and if you responded, I either missed it or mis-filed it). So... two things: US Southern Colonies Project has two participation requirements: (1) respond the the 6-month checkins & (2) join a team.

If you'll reply to this comment, that'll take care of (1). And you are a member of a team, but I need to clarify which one(s). This is what my records show:

You are

  • a member of the Province of South Carolina Team (you're on the trusted list & listed as a member on the page, with your interest areas, added by Mary in November 2020, as "ancestors in South Carolina and Georgia"
  • not a member of the Georgia Team. Should you be?
  • listed in the Project Members table as being on the Jamestown, Carolina & SC teams - you're all set for the SC Team but not the Jamestown or Carolina teams. Do you want to be on either/both/neither? (You're currently on the trusted lists for both the Jamestown Team & the Carolina Team, but not listed as a member on the page.)

Thanks!!

P.S. Also, just to clarify - folks who are members of the Southern Pioneers Project should have the United States Project badge, not be awarded the US Southern Colonies Project badge. Anyone wanting to be a badged member of the US Southern Colonies Project who isn't should answer the project's G2G welcome post (see the link on the project page, under "How to Join").

edit - forgot to add (1712-1776) to the SC Team name

Hi Paula,

I would like to Join the Roll of Honor project, please. I have added the tag to my profile, however, there is not a new thread on G2G to post an answer to. I have several members of my family (from both sides) that have earned some of the highest Military Awards given, including Silver Stars, Bronze Stars, Meritorious Service Medals, Distinguished Flying Crosses, Purple Hearts, and Air Medals.

I would also like to join The Forgotten Ones sub-project, please. I have at least 2 members of my mother's side that are currently listed on the Tablets of the Missing at the American Cemetery & Mausoleum in Manila, Philippines.

Hello Paula, I would like join Spencer project.

My maternal grandmother was Mabel May Spencer, daughter of Howard Orson, son of Orson Spencer. My sis in law Kathleen Black is writing a book about Orson, she has been gathering info for years, including a mission to the Nauvoo temple where she worked in the records room. Fascinating stuff! I am fairly new here, but have trees on Family Search and Ancestry.

Hi Paula,

Welcome to the US Southern Colonies Province of Carolina Team. I am excited to have you join this team. Here is the page where I jotted down goals and tasks if you will check them out. These will change as the project advances. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:US_Southern_Colonies_Province_of_Carolina_Team As we add space pages for Resources for Province of Carolina, we will attach them to this Team page for navigation.

After checking it over, and looking for what interests you most, just message me and I will be checking on you.

Please add a bit about your ancestors beside your name too what I attempted to add... After you have read the goals, let me know what you feel you want to do, you can just suggest ideas to me. It will be great working with you. Again thanks for joining us for this project and this team.

Hi Paula,

I need your assistance in getting the U.S. History Project badge. My efforts have been in vain. See https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/1054298/family-history-please-united-states-project-still-working

Also, I posted a message in the Comments section of https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Notables_of_Texas#comments for Mary. Their has been no response.

Mary does a lot of good work. However, several of the Texas Project pages need some work. Some are open, but some are locked for some reason. Texas is a big state and the Texas Project is necessarily very large. I am a 5th generation Texan.

If you need an additional coordinator to help Mary, let me know. I have been a coordinator on the Wales Project since 2017. You may discuss my work with Susie MacLeod.

Hi Paula,

As you may have seen, we have been doing some restructuring in the US Southern Colonies Project and are now organising ourselves into different teams. We have also changed the criteria for membership. Please have a look at the new project pages, and let me know whether you would like to remain in the project and, if so, 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 and are in the Google Group.

Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the US Southern Colonies Project that you respond to these check-ins. We’re really excited for the future of the project and hope that you decide to be a part of it with us moving forwards.

Many thanks,

Susie, US Southern Colonies Project Co-Leader
