Thank you for replying to the Great War Project July 2022 check in (subproject of the Military and War Project), Roy, since your grandfather served in that war. I have marked you as active.

Hi Again Roy--

I sent you a check-in message two weeks ago about the Great War Project July check in (subproject of Military and War Project). The message asked you about your continued involvement, I have not yet heard back from you. Do you still want to be in the Great War project? If I do not hear from you by the same time next week, I will assume that you've moved on to other things. You are most welcome to re-join the project at any answering the g2g posting Here.

Best wishes,

Mary~ Project Coordinator, Military and War Project

I am still interested in the Great War (WW I) since my Grandfather served in France during that conflict.

I've only added several lines of Stetsons, including several Civil War and Revolutionary War Vets.

Hi Roy.

I received a private message here on Wiki Tree from a Leslie Kearns. She has information that her ancestor, a Leah H. Kearns married an Oliver Stetson on 10 Sept 1805. She is looking for information on that Oliver Stetson. I can't find anything in my line and files. Would you be able to help her? She is on Wikit Tree and also at [email address removed] Thanks for any feedback you can provide David Stetson Gifford

posted by David Gifford
I'll see if I can help her - but I'd need a birth date because there are several Oliver Stetsons in the 1800's.

The Stetson Books don't have a Leah H. Kearns in the first 3 volumes - and she is not in Volume 4 or 5 either.

The only thing the LDS has on Leah is her marriage to Oliver, nothing else.

Hello! I'm really new here, if you can show me how to do merging (for Stetson)I will be forever thankful ☺️
posted by Elizabeth Stetson
Go down to the bottom of the page for Marshall Stetson Jr, and you will see the merge section, compare the two profiles and then merge them (its in green on the top of the page where the two profiles are side by side).

Once Cheryl approves of the merger, you willsee the parents of Marshall fill in and you'll see all of the ancestors too.

As you add new family members, make sure you check the potential matches as you put them in, it will save you a lot of data entry, and will fill in the tree pretty fast.

FWIW - I'm a full member of the Stetson Kindred of America and on the Board of Directors. I used DNA to prove that my G-G-Grandmother was actually a Stetson and not adopted into the family.

If I can help you work through WT's quirks, so much the better - I'm sure you have a lot of source documents to add to the mix.

Hello Roy!

It's time for our annual Scotland Project check-in!

This year we are hoping to learn what our membership would like to accomplish over the next 12 months. In case you aren't aware, this year is WikiTree's "Year of Connections" and the Project's leadership would like to contribute to this in as many ways as possible.

We would appreciate it if you would share your thoughts and ideas with us on how we can accomplish this goal. We would also appreciate it if you would provide some feedback on our existing goals, including:

  • If you have not yet signed up to help on one of the project's teams, which team(s) would you be interested in joining?
  • How often should we provide a Project Newsletter?
  • Have you participated in the Tartan Trail? If not, is this something you'd be interested in doing?
  • Do you have a question(s) that we could add to a Frequently Asked Questions page?
  • Any suggestions or ideas you have on ways to improve the Scotland Project in general

We continue to communicate with our Project members via Google Group (official) and Discord (unofficial), as well as G2G. You may also reach out to any of the Project leaders via WikiTree's internal messaging system at any time.

Thank you for all you do to help the Scotland Project become a knowledge hub for Scottish genealogical research! We wish you all the best in 2022!

I certainly would like to connect my Lamberton family from Ayrshire to the greater Lamberton list but I think I'm the only one working that surname in the Ayrshire group, so it hard to collaborate when you're working by yourself.

To make things more difficult, I am neck deep in building out the various branches of the Stetson family (one of my Mother's line) and tend to get sucked into working on those Profiles instead of my more immediate family.

It is my belief that I will somehow have to get to Ayrshire to really dig into my Lamberton roots, altho I plan to try to find my G-Grandfather's trips back and forth before he settled in New York City. My yDNA tests show Lamrocks who have roots where he was living as a child, but there are times I wonder if his Obituary is true.

FWIW - I find all the "welcome to" and "congratulations on the Tartan Trail" e-mail a bit much. I know we are supposed to be friendly and all, but 10-15 congratulations every time someone moves up a rung can overload an e-mail system quickly. (I have the same complaint about the Data Doctor threads as well.)

But keep up the good work - at some point my off WikiTree Lamberton group will have a breakthrough and then I'll have more to add. Right now I'm mired in New England and Upstate New York, Chasing Stetsons about the north woods.

It’s time for a Project check-in!

Scotland Project Leaders check in with you at least once a year to see how you are doing. With the changes happening around the world, we understand that life is hectic right now.

What are you planning to work on for the Scotland Project this year? Are you happy with the team(s) you part of, or would you like to make some changes?

This time round, we’re also looking for feedback on the use of Google Group and Discord. Do you use one or both of these? If you don’t use either of them, what is the best way to ensure you receive Project communications? If you would like to join us on Google Group or Discord, let us know in your response.

posted by Amy (Crawford) Gilpin
I am on the Google Group, but my family is from Ayrshire and there isn't much there about the SW Lands.


posted by Roy Lamberton
Thanks for checking in Roy! Are you on our Ayrshire team? I can't remember off the top of my head. I am also on that team, as my Crawfords are from there. Please feel free to reach out to the team leader if you need anything.
posted by Amy (Crawford) Gilpin
Not sure how much research your team is doing that overlaps with mine - it seems that the entire Scotland Project revolves around completing the "Tartan Trail" and trading congratulations when someone finishes a leg. Maybe I'm missing something here, but more feedback on tracking families in the various shires would be more useful (to me.) More detailed help on using the Scotland's People site, adding more individuals to the tree, working with the Masonic Lodge (Kilwinning) or clarifying Find A Grave data, would help those of us who have hit a wall, move forward.

Doing more with DNA, particularly yDNA and auDNA would be good as well, but I know we need a lot more of our fellow Scotts to step up and get some of the testing done.


posted by Roy Lamberton
Thanks for your feedback, Roy. Please do feel free to use the Google Group to ask questions about the families you are researching, or asking for specific help with other areas you mention. The Project tries to address all suggestions/questions put forward.

I work on the source-a-thon but as a member of the Nor'Easters since most of the profiles I manage are from that area. My g-grandmother was a Stetson, and I keep busy maintaining those family profiles.

Hi Roy!

Thanks so very much for your participation in the spring Clean-a-thon! Every suggestion you cleared (over 700!) made our Tree that much better. The WikiTree community appreciates YOU!

Roy, Please review two James Fales. There appears to be a mixup between the Fales-53 and Fales-54. Fales-53 (married to Anne Brock) is the one who died in 1708 in Dedham. James-54 (married to Anne Wolnough) did not come to America.
If they are not locked, go ahead and add information that corrects the confusion.,

I'm a little surprised that they are consecutively numbered - but then I am not on either Profile as a PM, and I don't think I've edited anything on them outside of maybe the Clean A Thon....

posted by Roy Lamberton
edited by Roy Lamberton
I think when originally entered, they were correctly shown as father and son, but when someone merged the Fales-53 with Fales-161 (? I forgot the other number at the moment) that made the dates wonky. I will try to fix so it makes more sense. One difficulty, is that there is not any real proof that these two are actually father and son. It is an assumption that has been perpetrated, and too many believe it to be true, without documentation, so it continues...
Roy, making more than one thousand contributions in September added so much to the breadth and depth of our Shared Tree. The Appreciation Team thanks YOU!

Hi Roy,

We realise the time has come to dissolve the UK Project in favour of the individual country projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

We are checking in with all UK badge holders to find out which country project(s) you would like to be in so you can collaborate with other members, have the opportunity to select which team(s) you would like to join, and so we can ensure you have all the correct badges.

Please respond by PM to let us know which country project(s) you would like to be in. Please don’t assume we know. We are effectively starting from scratch to make sure no one falls through the cracks.

Once you have done this, the Coordinator for Membership in the relevant country project(s) will be in touch to help get you situated.

Many thanks,

Fixed John Truant's DOB to what's given in Marshfield VR book that's on gravestone.

However, I have to check Find a Grave as it looks like it may give a DOB of 1697.

Also, hopefully figured out the sons Samuel and John whose births were recorded twice.

Meanwhile, have to look more closely at the pic of Silence Trouant'gravestone. Don't think her death was 1718, but rather 1748.
