In my younger years (approx. 7-14 yrs old), with my mother and one brother, we showed, bred, and sold guinea pigs; winning trophies and ribbons within Ontario, Canada.

I have a degree in Interior Design and in the process of getting a MA in Management.

Officially/seriously started ancestry and genealogy research--for my family and others--in mid to late December 2016, with the interest in doing so for about 10 years prior at minimum.

Majority of my work goes into WikiTree, Ancestry (not paying), Family Search, Find A Grave, and BillionGraves.

Project starter on WikiTree for Canadian Corps Cyclist Battalion on 10 Feb 2017. Co-managed with Casey Anderson who originally started the project outside this website. (Credit goes to Terry Wright for creating the free space profile!)

Project starter for the Tuck Name Study on March 29, 2017.

Canadian Corps Cyclist Battalion


The Canadian government may be honouring the Canadian Corps Cyclist Battalion unit from WWI in 2018, and we're trying to find as many descendants of those men as possible, as they would likely be interested to learn about these honours.

We currently have a few Canadian Expeditionary Force Divisional Cyclist documents from 1915 that list those who were apart of the Battalion.

1) Divisional Cyclist Company[1] 2) 2nd Divisional Cyclist Corps[2] 3) Divisional Cyclists 1st, 2nd and 3rd Reinforcing Drafts[3]

We are using them as part of the foundation for our research to add them to this site and to be able to also locate their living family members. These family members can contact any of the project managers, our Facebook group (Canadian Corps Cyclist Battalion Descendants' Reunion), or can send an email ( to connect with other descendants, etc.

We'll add who we currently know and as many as possible along the way, and hope we can get some help from the community as well for our project. Thank you!

Hello, Emily,

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, Emily,

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 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 a general sense how you may have contributed to the main project or any sub-projects within the last couple months.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi Emily,

I've not heard back from you about the Global Cemeteries Project so assume you do not wish to continue in the project at this time. Thank you for all the contributions you have made; we are sorry to see you go. You are most welcome to rejoin at any time via the G2G sign up post.

Leader, Global Cemeteries Project

Hi Emily,

I sent you a message a week ago about the new-look Global Cemeteries Project but have not yet heard back from you. If you would like to continue in the project, please can you PM me your team(s) selections and your e-mail address for the Google group.

If I don’t hear back from you by this time next week I’ll assume you no longer wish to be in the project at this time.

Many thanks,

Susie :-)

Leader, Global Cemeteries Project

Hi Emily,

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,


Leader, Global Cemeteries

Hi Emily,

Thank you for your message telling me what team(s) you’d like to be on with Canada. I’ve made a note of them. Please can you send me your e-mail address by return so that I can get you added to the Google Group?

Many thanks,


Hi Emily,

I haven’t yet heard back from you to say whether or not you’d like to continue in the Canada Project. Please can you let me know if you’d like to stay, what team(s) you’d like to be in, and let me know your e-mail address so I can add you to the project Google Group? If I haven’t heard back from you by this time next week I’ll assume you no longer want to be in the project and go ahead and remove you. You would, of course, be most welcome to re-join at any time.

Many thanks,


Hi Emily,

Greg Lavoie, Dave Rutherford and I have put a lot of work into restructuring the Canada Project. Have a look at the new project page.

You'll see that we've changed the project name to the Canada Project and the badge will be changed shortly. We've done this in order to provide lots of ways for people to contribute to Canadian Profiles. We've also moved towards a team approach with top level teams being lead by Project Coordinators and sub-teams being lead by Team Leaders.

Would you like to continue in the Canada Project, and if so, which team(s) would you like to be on?

Let me know if you have any questions. Once I hear back from you I'll add you to the Google group and get you set up in your team(s).


Emily, great job on the Croatian Project page. Can you email an image of your choice that would be suitable to make a template design?

Abby will make the template for the project.
