Hi László!

Some time ago, you have expressed your interest in Project Belgium. The project has recently been promoted from a free-space project to a more official project (actually a sub-project of Europe)! You can find the (revamped) project page here.

That means among other things that you can now receive a project badge (of the Europe Project) indicating your involvement, that we can more easily create stickers, that we will be able to discuss and "officially" establish guidelines and standards relating to Belgian profiles, and that we will have a project account for important Belgian profiles.

If you're still interested, could you (re)confirm your interest to become a member of Project Belgium by answering this g2g post? I will then make sure you receive the (Europe) badge!

Best regards,

László, We now have a "sticker" (tag) for members of the Hungary Project.

Even if you cannot complete a Pre-1500 merge, you need to approve it. Otherwise, we have to wait the 30 days for the default approval.
posted by Robin Lee
I posted these G2G messages according to the instruction I get after the approval (clicking "merge"). The message says "Pre-1500 Certification is required to complete this merge. Consider using this button to ask "Can a Pre-1500 Certified member merge A into B?" in our G2G forum. Thank you!"

Can you go to the profiles you manage and hit the merge button? I am trying to figure out if this is a bug in the system.

Thanks László for the comment about the death date of Otto III, Duke of Bavaria & King of Hungary, but the English version of Wikipedia is incorrect. The date he died of 9 September which is already on the WikiTree profile is the same as the German Wikipedia page, two biographies uses as sources on that page, and Medieval Lands, which cites two primary sources. The suggestions report related to WikiData can be useful but it is always a good idea to double-check with other sources before making any changes.

Hi László,

I've been working on the Pope's project and you are Profile Manager for Pope Honorius IV ( Giacomo Savelli ). There is an issue with his sister being 75 years younger than him. See the research note I've added to his profile. If you could resolve that issue it would be appreciated. If you need help updating the profile etc please let me know. I will need the sourced changes so I can update the profile. Regards Deborah

Hi László,

John contacted me today, it seems the Euroaristo Project is still working out things a bit, they are going to work with several different Project accounts, so each sub-project probably will have it's own account.

If you are managing profiles that are Euro Aristocrats and candidates for project management I think contacting or sending a list of them to John is the most easy thing to do, Ales is helping all projects to get this organized and he sometimes can add the project accounts as co-manager to lists of profiles automatically so that would make things more easy eeh :)

Greets and have a wonderful weekend,

Bea :)

Thanks László! My Hungarian is pretty nonexistent. I've fixed the accents on Szilvester Pál's page.
