Hi Kirsty,

Greetings and Happy New Year from Sydney.

In 2015 you connected Walter Grieve Laidlaw (abt.1815-1893) as son of William Laidlaw (1756-1825) and Mary (Blake) Laidlaw (abt.1776-1855). I can't find any sources for this. Can you remember any links?

Best wishes

Hi Kirsty

Under Hilda's name you have put the biography for Hazel. Not sure if you meant to do that. My mother was an Ormsby. That family's history is fascinating right back to the vikings. Regards Mark

Hi Kirsty, Thanks for adding the cemetery category requests to our page, they will all get created as we get through them. Could I get you to check more with the category picker to see if a category already exists. I'm finding quite a few of them already exist, perhaps with a slightly different name, but with the same Find a Grave number. Find a Grave doesn't always use the same name. eg, There was a request for Cobar General Cemetery, but Cobar Cemetery already existed (same FAG number shown on the category page). Same for Robertson Cemetery in NSW.

If one comes up in the category list with similar name, just add it and then go to the category page and check if the FAG number is the same as what you have.

It will be great to get so many new ones added, thanks for doing all the research, but I don't want to add any duplicate ones.

Cheers, Margaret

How can i search categories? Happy to do what works best to help!
When in a profile in edit mode, see the row of icons above the edit box, the one second from the right (next to the big C!), with the boxes like a heirarchy, click on that, it brings up a search box, type in say, Robertson cemetery, it will come up with choices. Then you can select one if it fits, and the category gets added to the edit box. Even if it's not exactly the same name but close, add it, then you can go to the category from the profile page after saving, and check the FAG number on the existing one, see if it's the same.

I hope that makes sense, this help page might explain it better!

Let me know if that all makes sense! Cheers, Margaret

Hi Kirsty, could you please not keeping adding cemetery categories without parent categories and with spelling errors and duplication of existing categories. Please read this help page, Cemetery Categorization on the correct way to name and create cemetery categories. Please add any category creation requests to this page, Categories Waiting to be Added or Renamed. It is easier for us to add the categories correctly in the first instance, than having to correct them and rename duplicates.

Thanks for your assistance, Margaret Haining, Categorization and Australia Projects.

Hi, Kirsty!

Thank you for adding your DNA to WikiTree. Getting the Best from DNA will tell you more about how DNA kits are used on WikiTree.

I hope this helps! If you have any questions or problems, let me know.

Take care,

Laura ~ WikiTree Greeter

Hi Kirsty, just to let you know the cemetery categories you've added yesterday and today, were incorrect, some of them were named incorrectly and have been re-named, and none of them had any parent categories, so they appeared on the category error lists. This is how they should be created, Gunning General Cemetery

The easiest way to add Australian categories, including cemeteries, is to add the requests to our Australia project category request page, and we will add them for you.

Kind Regards, Margaret Haining, Categories team leader, Australia Project.

Hi Kirsty,

Many thanks indeed for suggesting the merge of the two profiles for Caroline Frances Ann Lediard who died at Mandurah, Western Australia on 2 November 1863. I have completed the merge and added some further biographical details with more information to come.

Kind regards ..... Peter Mitchell

Hi Kirsty, do you have any further reference as to what "The Generations Of The Stephen Chambers Family" is - a book you cited on McKinley-879?

Kirsty: Hello, trust you are coping with 'the pandemic'.

I have recently adopted a profile (Laird-1936, my wife's Great-grandfather) which you created in mid-2018. Thank you for starting the ball rolling. I would very much appreciate your advising me, if possible, of any sources you have found for dates, places and details, if any, for birth and/or baptism/christening of James Keith Laird I regret to say that I've been mostly unsuccessful in locating such source information and trust that you please may be able to help. My thanks in advance for any/all assistance you are able to provide. Stay well, stay safe. Best regards.....Phil (Grace-883)

Hi Kirsty, the Charles Lewis ( you have put on this tree is not the correct person for the children you have added to him....Our Charles Lewis was born in England and had one child in England with his wife Mary Jane before coming to New Zealand where the rest were born in South Canterbury. So you also have the wrong parents for this person.

Hi Kirsty

You received a message a couple of weeks ago about the new-look Global Cemeteries Project but we 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,

Hi Kirsty,

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 Kirsty,

I’ve not heard back from you so presume you don’t want to continue in the Canada Project at this time so have gone ahead and removed your badge. If that changes anytime you would be most welcome to re-join in the future.

Hi Kirsty, I wondered if I could please have a typo corrected on Frank Samuel Farmers record -

His mother's surname is showing as Lyvret - this should be spelt as Syvret - are you able to please change so that family members can trace her?. Thank you so much. Regards Meg Twist

Hi Kirsty,

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,
