Hey Bob when you merged Thomas Bridges Barker, you switched the birth year from 1820 to 1829. Our tree shows 1820. Can you confirm the source of that birth year?

As a Longstreet with roots in New Jersey, I'm interested in any of the work you are doing there (for example I suspect that lineage crosses mine somewhere along the line and I'd like to collaborate. (great grandfather).

Jamie ... I was just helping out a new WikiTree person ... Sue Jewett (Jewett-6558). Her information was pretty much just word of mouth so I helped her with sources and a few more profiles. Sue and I are connected by John Light Jewett (Jewett-1899). She may have more interest in the Longstreet line. I did a relationship search with Longstreet-33 and we are related but it had to go back to like 1240 ... yikes!

This is Chris from the Italy Project. As part of the annual project check-in, can you fill in the project survey? This will let us know that you are still interested in the project and which teams you'd like to participate in.

Thanks and have a great day!

Hey Bob! I'm trying to link the chain of Premiers and Prime Ministers of Newfoundland (the categories, the space pages, and profile pages) with navigational aids, without breaking your careful formatting. The work you've done is excellent, hopefully I've not messing anything up.

Thanks Bob, I was just doing some housework. The wikitree program has a section for suggestions that their little "bot" runs around and identifies as possible issues. Didn't do much.


Ciao! I created a thread for the Italy project teams here:

I hope you check it out. If I have you down for a team, let me know. If you still haven't decided, feel free to comment. Thanks!

Ciao! This is just a general check-in for members of the Italy project. I am checking to see who is still interested in being a member of the project as we go through some much needed restructuring. I was also wondering what teams you would like to be on. We’ve created teams for each part of Italy. North, South, Islands etc. They will be explained further in an upcoming g2g post. Stay tuned. For now, please let me know if you are still interested in the project and if you’d like to be a member of a team.

Chris ... yep, I'm still interested in the project ... I've been a little lax over the years!! Interested in Northern Italy where my Grandfather was born ... Domososolla ... they lived a bit further North in Premia.
posted by Bob Jewett
That's so cool. Literally and figuratively. =) I'll put you down for the northern teams. Just keep an eye out for the g2g post.

Hi Bob: Susannah Jewett was my 5th great grandmother. I have been working on this tree since Feb. We are having trouble connecting Isaac to a wife.
Hi Bob,

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 :-)
