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.)


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

Paula, I reached out to Mary Richardson as well to ask if someone from Team South Carolina would be willing to help us dig in to this South Carolina family? It's part of the WikiTree Challenge ending Wednesday and we're trying to decide if we have enough info to declare this Joachim Hudson profile to be conflated and in need of splitting:

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

We have a large membership for Province of Carolina Team. As previously discussed in the leadership Team, I have split the Province of Carolina Team into the following :

B) This Province of Carolina Team

C) this Province of North Carolina Team

Of note there is A Quality Assurance subteam listed on the Province of Carolina Team page which you may be interested in also.

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. 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

Also, I posted a message in the Comments section of 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

Thank you, Paula, for letting the Quakers Project adopt Elizabeth (Johnston) Keith.

The Global Cemeteries Project is currently undergoing our member check-in and wanted to verify that you are still active and interested in being a member of the project. Are you currently assigned to or working with one of our Cemetery Teams? If not, is there a particular Team or area you are interested in participating with? I would be delighted to help you get setup in one or more of our collaborative teams!

We use Google Groups for internal project collaboration, so if you are not yet setup for access feel free to submit a join request and we will get that approved as quick as possible. We also ask that members check their followed tags to make sure you are following the correct project tag (CEMETERIES) so you don't miss any discussions in G2G.

Last, but not least, we would like to thank you for all of your contributions to WikiTree and let you know that any ideas or suggestions for improvement you may have for the Global Cemeteries Project would greatly appreciated!

I look forward to hearing form you soon!

Hi Paula, On my suggestions (for quite awhile) is a PPP #921 for Drury Roach-1009 from 1995. Not sure why he was given a PPP but his father James Roach-1020 is probably more in need of PPP that Drury. James Roach has a cult following that believe they know who his father is, and would like to link them - have held them at bay so far. The best Roach genealogists cannot find documentation for a father clue on James. DNA research of documented Roach descendants, does suggest that William and James Roach-1020, are closely related, but not close enough to be father son. Maybe William did have a son James but it was not Roach-1020. And I suppose that faulty family trees can tweak DNA results, but until someone can prove who James' father is, I am in the father unknown camp. Thanks in advance, if you can get this #921 off my suggestions and wipe my slate clean. . .Patt
