DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Doug or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
  • Doug McCallum: Family Tree DNA Y-DNA Test 111 markers, haplogroup R-FT87684, FTDNA kit #122713, MitoYDNA ID T10492 [compare]
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • Doug McCallum: Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test Full Sequence, haplogroup H1-T152C, FTDNA kit #122713, MitoYDNA ID T10484 [compare]
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Doug:

Hi,

I sent you a check-in message several days ago about the 1776 Project to ask you about your past and continued involvement but have not yet heard back from you. Do you still want to be in the project?

If I don’t hear from you in a week or so, I’ll assume that you’ve moved on to other things, but you’re most welcome to re-join the project at any time.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Best wishes,

Betty -- 1776 Project Leader

Thanks for checking, Betty. I don't remember if I have made changes on Wikitree or not. I am currently working on some Loyalist ancestors so have been going over my 1776 timeframe ancestors.

Greetings from the 1776 Project . . .

We're doing our semi-annual check-in to ask whether you have made contributions to the project in the last six months?

Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the 1776 Project that you respond to this check-in. Please post your response as a reply to this message on your page, for convenience of record keeping.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Hello Doug,

I was intrigued by your presentation. I too have been doing genealogy for 30 years, it's about time I stopped "doing genealogy" and became a genealogist. I am Italian by birth, born in a bilingual, mixed family and still have strong ties to northern Germany (currently in Berlin for a few weeks). I'm a professional translator and interpreter as well as a Wikipedia contributor and am envisaging helping with my skills when I'm more familiar with the WikiTree platform.

What is the first step to becoming a genealogist?

I'm also looking for a mentor as I move my first steps in WikiTree. Specifically, I need to correct about 17 mistakes in 20 entries (mainly duplicates) and I don't know where to start from. Would you be willing to be my mentor or do you already have too much... around your ears?

Hello fellow Co-Leader!

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!

Sincerely, Amy Gilpin on behalf of the Scotland Project Leaders

We are also asking all project members to join the project's Google Group for project communications.

If you are interested in remaining with the Project, please reply to this comment or send me a message, request to join the Google Group, and let us know what team you would like to participate on.

We really appreciate your contributions on WikiTree, and thank you for all your hard work. If you have any questions, please ask. We would also love to hear any feedback you may have for the project.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Just noticed that you have a stamp for being a descendant of Roger Conant. I too have him as an ancestor.
Question: How does one correct a surname? Dougal-37 is an error. When I came upon this person - the info was sketchy and didn't match any sources that were included or the many I found. Part of the problem was the similarity in her maiden surname and her first marriage. I finally found accurate records - but meanwhile, the name Dougal, for which there was absolutely no sources was imbedded.

As I started to enter her father, I realized that I'd better get the problem corrected first. Thanks for any help you can give me. Thanks, Sherry

We want to thank you very much for your participation in this weekend's Clean-a-thon! Your 48 contributions helped bring our team to almost 7000 corrections made, which is an amazing number for a small team. As a token of thanks for helping our team, please feel free to add this participation sticker to your profile (as always, below the Biography line). You'll need to add curly brackets/braces { like these, but doubled } around the following template:
Clean-a-Thon|team=Team Twisted Thistles|year=2021|suggestions=48

If you enjoyed working to make repairs like these, please consider joining the Data Doctors Project, a group of members who work on these improvements on an ongoing basis.

Hi, Doug of the Garden!

Thank you for your participation in October 2020’s 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.

Hi, Doug

The Ambassadors project has been reorganizing and is looking for those who have a membership at a genealogical society, to help in spreading the word about WikiTree.

We're working on ways to improve how WikiTree connects and interacts with genealogical and local history societies. This is the kind of thing we want to do:

  • Liaise with societies: set up your local society with a free-space page and some WikiTree materials as part of a package.
  • Use social media to promote what societies are offering on WikiTree.
  • Encourage bloggers to blog about societies and the resources available to them on WikiTree.

Are you interested in participating in some way? Do you have some ideas to share?

Hi Doug, I noticed your comment on Nicholas Coady (Coady-75) I posted this below in the comments, would love to have your opinion on this.

Supposed daughter of Nicholas (Anastasia) came up in my DNA. I descend from the Coady's of Outer Cove, on John Coady/Coody's (Coady-312) marriage record, it lists a "John Dienn/Deenn" as a father, giving me the impression John was adopted, he must of been born sometime prior to 1808, 18 years before his marriage, this makes me wonder if Nicholas was his father, but died, and someone adopted John.

Hello Doug! Thanks for your comment on Remember the Children page, depending on where in the world and at what time it might very well be that children who died under the age of 18 had managed to both get married and have children, so only mark these as unmarried and childless if you have information to back this up. Of course if a child died before puberty it is safe to say they had no children but say a royal child could have been married are 12 or 14 so unfortunately there is no way of being certain of these things unless you have sources to back it up. We will improve the information on the page.
