Followed Tags
Katie is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
Many of my Ancestors on both sides of the family lived and were born in Canada.
The best confirmation of information comes from Graveyards and Written Documents.
Gallagher is my husband's great grandmother's maiden name.
My husband's great grandmother married a Griffin.
My maiden name seems to be the hardest because Johnson is a very common name, especially coming from Sweden in the 1800's.
As an educator, I have always had great respect for those that served our country. Those that were forced into the Vietnam War and came home with stories of a hellish war, and were never respected or honored, I have always had a hole in my heart.

Being part of this project will help me heal a little bit more with each Veteran that is brought to the forefront.

Although I'm not quite sure why, I have always had a fascination of looking at old Cemeteries.
Concentrating on Notables from South Carolina and New Hampshire.
Researching the Olmstead Family Tree has always been on my bucket list!
Plante, Richard, Olmstead, Johnson. Little by little, step by step, I am adding to one or more of these names as often as possible. Sometimes it's looking for a source, other times it is reviewing and correcting information.
My grandfather was Simeon Plante. His family immigrated from Canada in the early 1900's. It is important to me that my relatives learn more about their family tree.
My mother's maiden name is Plante.
My mother's maiden name was Richard. She was Alice Plante Johnson. Her mother was Rose Anna Richard. Rose was my Memere, my grandmother.

Her great, great grandfather was Michel Richard from France.

As a member of Military and War, Vietnam has always been an interest to me. Currently working on adding Vietnam Veterans from the Vietnam Veterans Wall of Faces (226 from New Hampshire alone), all of these projects can easily overlap each other.
The time to recognize and appreciate those that fought in the Vietnam War is way overdo. If I can add one more Veteran to the Purple Heart National Hall of Fame, add even one more to Wiki Tree, Military and War and Vietnam Veteran to this project, I will feel a bit better with each and everyone that I can add.
My parents and most of their siblings were at the age of service for World War II.

Hi Katie,

Your list of men killed in Vietnam had become very long. So I put it into kind of columns.

Plus some at the bottom do not have their WikiTree numbers, thus are red...

Hello, Katie,

It has been a couple of weeks since we contacted you about your participation in the Military and War Project and we are following up to make sure you wish to remain a member.

We understand that interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to the branches they are currently building. If this is the case for you, please let us know.

If we do not hear back from you within the week, we will assume you have moved on to other things for the moment and remove you from the project. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.

Hello, Katie,

On behalf of the Military and War Project Leaders, we are doing a six-month check-in with members.

First, we want to thank you for your past participation in the Military and War Project. We appreciate your desire to honor your ancestors for their service to their countries, or even for your service, wherever in the world. We hope that your membership has enhanced your WikiTree experience.

Please let me know, by commenting on my profile or sending a private message, if you are still active in the project, and if so, in which ways you have contributed to the main project or a sub-project within the last two months.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi Catherine,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential. You can learn about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.

The Quebecois Project may fit your research focus. Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find other possibilities. Review the project page to learn about resources and guidelines as well as how to collaborate with the project members.

Have questions? Click my name, then ask in the comments on my profile.

Hi Catherine

As you have been a member of WikiTree for a few weeks now I thought I would check in to see how you are getting on with the site.

Has the New Member How-To  been helpful or left you with any questions?

I am here to help with any problems or queries you may have. Just click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page or send me a private message.

Sometimes links don't work in emails.  If that's happened to you, check the public comments on your profile. The links will work from there.
