Hi Doug,

Thanks for your contributions to Puritan Great Migration (PGM) project profiles.

Like all WikiTree projects we check in with team members periodically to find out about their continued interest in the project. Would you please respond by February 12, 2024, to let us know about your interest:

1. Would you like to continue as a PGM project team member?;

2. Do you have any suggestions for PGM Project priorities in the next year (optional)?;

3. Do you have interest in taking a more active role within the PGM project, and if so, what you might be interested in doing (optional)?

Please respond to this comment on your profile, or if you'd like, send a private message to either Bobbie (Madison) Hallor S (Hill) Willson.

Thanks for all you do for PGM and WikiTree!

Regards,

Bobbie and Sharon, Co-Leaders, Puritan Great Migration Project

I definitely want to continue.

I think resolving some of the PGM adjacent profiles should be a priority. I don't have a lot of extra time but would be willing to spend some on the PGM adjacent cases.

Many thanks, Doug. We're happy to have you stay with PGM!

I do want to stay involved. I'm still slowly adding WWI soldiers from New Brunswick, Canada, who were KIA. Will eventually add beyond the KIA.
posted by Doug McCallum UE
Thanks for checking in. You have a lot of other activities as well as the KIA WWI soldiers of Canada. I marked you active.

Hi Doug, this category sent to be renamed has a number of links on profiles from a template, that will need to be changed manually. There is also a couple of living profiles that Editbot won't be able to access, that will need to be changed manually.

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Clan_Young

Thanks, regards Margaret, Categorization Project

Thanks for the heads up. I'll do the manual part.
posted by Doug McCallum UE
Hi Doug, do you still coordinate "the Category Doctors"? If so do you know when they are likely to appoint a new Project Leader to the "Categorization Project".

It seems they stopped taking new members and shut it down as far back as 2021.

As an ex-submariner, I would have liked to have joined, as I'm interested in adding missing Ship, Submarine and Shore Establishments to the British Royal Navy category.

Best wishes for the holiday season. Bob.

Hi Doug, did you know you have a red category from one of the clan stickers? https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/McCallum-175#categories Regards, Margaret :)
Category:Clan Donnachaidh ...should have an "h" at the end of it.

I have been doing some England location cleanup - looking for towns that lack a country as recognized in wikitree+ (which can mean the absence of a comma or an abbreviation that is not recognized). Today I did a search for Carleton and there are a whole lot, mostly Canadian. It looks like a lot of New Brunswick, some Ontario, some Quebec. I wanted to let the Canada project know about this and it looks like you specialize in New Brunswick so I am contacting you. I just fixed the ones I could ID as England (which means after the weekly data dump), but this search should be pretty close, in case you folks want to do some location cleanup (to ensure these profiles are in all your reports etc) https://plus.wikitree.com/default.htm?report=srch1&Query=birthlocation%3DCarleton+open+birthcountry%3Dunknowncountry+not+manager%3Dcartmell-134&MaxProfiles=5000&Format=&SortOrder=BiLoc&PageSize=50

Thank you for replying to the Great War Project July 2022 check in (subproject of the Military and War Project), Doug. I have marked you as active. I had another project member asking how she could track the profiles other than a list on her page. I gave her the Great War category list.. But since you answered quickly with the comment that you update them periodically, do you use the watchlist?

I'm still interested. Time to add a few more soldiers from New Brunswick, Canada who died in the war. I do periodic updates.

Hi Doug

I think there is a flaw in the Merge system. I am trying to merge Mounger -723 and Mounger -696, First ; The system cannot locate either one. Then I went to profile page and system could not find other profile. I know for sure they are same person, for I was working with Wendy . Please help Lang at Howse 124
