Dear Loretta,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing its first annual check-in with our project members. Please review the following and let us know if you are content where we have placed you or would like to be more involved.

We are in the process of transitioning to a team structure. There will be three participant PIP Teams to start -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. There is also the Voyage Team which guides new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team.

You're currently identified as a member of the Biography Team Level 1, working on profiles from your own watchlist and whatever else you find. Biography Teams Levels 2 and 3 will work on designated profiles for notables (Level 3) and everyday people (Level 2). Please let us know if you would like to help with a higher-level Bio Team or one of the other Teams.

We would also like to invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. If you request to join our GoogleGroup, please be sure to include your Wiki ID. Neither is required; we also use the Profile_Improvement tag in G2G for Project announcements.

We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project and WikiTree. The Project’s mission is to:

Make profiles beautiful! We clean up messy biography sections and sources, and try to set standards for attractive, useful, and well-written biographies, starting with those we manage.

We know you’re working on profiles *smile* We would like to hear about successes you’ve had toward the Project’s goals. We would also appreciate any feedback you might have to help us improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or privately via private message to either of us.

Loretta, please don't add claims about Cornblossom and her supposed family to wikitree. We soundly debunked this three years ago after extensive research. You can read our analysis here:


It is unfortunate that Butch Walker included that myth in his otherwise good bio of Doublehead.

Thank you for the information on Cornblossom, I had no idea. I will remove immediately. Thank you again.

Hi, Cuz!

Thank you for your participation in October’s 2020 Source-a-thon. Your contributions helped us to clear over 57,000 profiles that needed sourcing. This makes our Shared Tree all that much better.

Keep up the great work!

I noticed you edited the profile for Judith Guevarra, one of my wife's ancestors I just recently found. Thank you for this. Do you have any additional information on her?

Peter, I am working towards that goal. Give me a couple of weeks. :) The Source-a-thon is coming up the first weekend in Oct. Several wikitreer's will be sourcing profiles maybe something will show up then. :) If you would like to sign up please go to this link https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/1097927/have-you-registered-for-the-2020-source-a-thon-yet?start=240#a_list_title I am the Co-Captian of the Southern Super Sweepers and we would be happy to have you on our team.

Hello, I want to thank you for looking at the Jack family information, I really appreciate it. I have a lot of documentation that I have collected over the years with documents, legal, wills, and mostly the JV Thompson Journals all 27 volumes. The problem is I don't how to site sources on here, and the Jack family has been a very hard family to verify due to such large families dating back to Scotland. Every generation and every brother and sisters usually have the same names. There are so many James, Johns, Matthews, Andrew William, with so many dates, it's just too hard to track it all. But I'm am working on them. Maybe if someone could help me write sources I would really appreciate it. Don't mean to be such a big problem. Thanks again.

All WikiTreers have gone through the same thing. I will send you some information that should help you. I will continue to work on the Jack Profiles. Hope this helps!

I did not address the documents you have accumulated. If you want to share those documents on WikiTree, Scan them and attach to correct profile.

Hello, Cousin Loretta!

Thanks for the work you accomplished during our Connect-A-Thon 2020. It is amazing how many more profiles were created and added to our Shared Tree over the weekend. I hope you’ll join us for the Source-a-thon this fall.

Kind regards,

Hi there, Cousin Loretta!

Thanks so very much for your participation in the spring Clean-a-thon! Every suggestion you cleared (over 500!) made our Tree that much better. The WikiTree community appreciates YOU!

Yes, I have an Ancestry test. As far as I'm concerned, Jonathan b1760 was my earliest Barnard ancestor (my mother's maiden name). I don't pay much attention to this. (My brain is full). I don't know if I'd find any common connections with you even if I knew where to look.
posted by Douglas Beezley
Thank you for your reminder about sources. I have probably adopted more profiles than I can comfortably take care of properly. Even though they are in my lineage, they're also in someone else's who might take better care of them.

I am not adding anyone and will concentrate on going through those already in my care.

Hi Lorette: A note of appreciation for your hard work and contributions to the Fall "Source A Ton" this past weekend. In all you worked on getting our membership list up to date and functioning. You encouraged the team to do the best they can. I know you wish you could have done more profiles but family does take priority. And the weather didn't help either. Anyway,Thank you so much for all you did do representing the Super Sweepers as co-captain. I enjoyed working with you. Keep up the outstanding job in all you do on WikiTree.

Hi Loretta! Just a short note of thanks, and appreciation, for your help during the "connect a thon" this last weekend!! The Super Sweepers made it to tenth place and that was a hard achievement based on the competition going on. Thank you for encouraging the team, offering advice and just hanging in there with us through it all. Just know I am grateful for team members like yourself and your dedication to WikiTree.

Loretta, I accidentally stepped on a profile you had done. I added a source to remove all doubt on the name and gave it a false suggestion. Oops. Hope adding the WWII draft makes up for the faux pas.
