Hi Sheila,

It is once again time for our annual Ireland Project check-in. Please respond within the next three weeks to let us know:

  1. If you would like to continue as an Ireland Project member. If your answer is yes, please tell us if you are happy with your current team, or if you would prefer to join a different one. If you are currently participating in more than one team we would appreciate you ranking them in their order of importance to you, from highest priority to lowest. This information will be helpful as we consider possible future changes to our team structure.
  2. In the past, the project has had a very minimal membership requirement (one contribution per year) for badged members to meet. Do you believe this is adequate, or should this requirement be increased? What do you believe would be a reasonable commitment to expect from all project members?
  3. How active have you been in the Ireland Project over the past year? Please choose one of the following options: a) I normally spend 1-5 hours per month helping achieve my team’s goals. b) I normally spend 6-10 hours per month helping achieve my team’s goals. c) I spend over 10 hours per month helping achieve my team’s goals. d) I am not able to contribute every month but have spent approximately ________ hours during the past year improving Irish profiles.
  4. Please provide feedback on any things you’d like to see the project do more of in the future.

You can respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. If we don’t hear from you within the next three weeks we’ll assume your interests have changed or you no longer are able to participate in the Ireland Project at this time, and your badge will be removed. If your circumstances change later you will be welcome to reapply for membership.

Many thanks for all that so many of you have contributed to the project in the past year, and very special thanks to those who answered the project’s call and gave generously of their time to be part of Team Seanchaithe during the most recent connect-a-thon. We are looking forward to hearing from you.

Hello Jen,

My apologies... I've been completely avoiding my computer these days.

1. I don't know what team I'm on. I would continue (because I haven't been doing anything) but I supposed maybe I should just leave since I'm not doing anything. 2. I think that's fine. I suppose I should get one thing done per year at least! (I'm hoping the research bug bites me again soon!) 3. d. in the past year, I've maybe done a couple of hours in wikitree 4. Is there a link to tell me more about the Ireland Project, what you want done, etc.? Never mind, I just googled it... I'll read it now

All the best, Sheila

Hi Sheila,

It’s time for our annual Ireland Project check-in! Please respond within the next two weeks to let me know:

  • If you are happy with the team you’re on or if you’d like to make a change. It is now required that all members with an Ireland project badge work on at least one of the project’s team(s), so if you’ve not yet signed up please do so in your reply to this check-in.
  • What you think the project is doing well, and what (if any) changes you would like to see us make? Are there any teams you would like to become more active in?
  • Would you be interested in helping to work on an Ireland Project newsletter?
  • Please give us some 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 for us to ensure you receive project communications? If you would like to join us on either one, just let us know in your response and we will get you signed up.

Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. If we don’t hear from you within two weeks, we will assume you are no longer interested in participating in the Ireland Project, and your badge will be removed. If you wish to reapply for membership later, we will be happy to have you back. Many thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Hello Jen,

Thanks for the check up. I haven't been doing much genealogy during the pandemic. I hope the bug bites me again soon!

I think I'm on a Kerry Team, but I also wouldn't mind being on a Cork Team. Those are the two counties that most of my ancestors are from, but I've also worked on other Counties including those in N. Ireland (using PRONI).

I guess, as something that might be helpful to me, would be pretty regular reminders of where to find profiles that need to be worked on. Sometimes I stumble upon the page, but most of the time, I don't know where it is.

I am involved in another newsletter so I don't think I want to take on another. Thank you.

I've never heard of google group or discord. I've never used either. Do I have to choose one? If Yes, then I guess google group because at least I've heard of google!

Thanks again. Please let me know if there's anything else I should do.

Cheers, Sheila

This FAQ sheet provides instructions on how to find profiles that your team needs to work on, and also gives instructions about Discord: If you would like to be added to the project's google group, please pm me with your email address and I'll send you an invitation. Thanks, Jen

Hi Sheila!

Welcome to the County Kerry Sub-Project!

As you may have heard, WikiTree is having a source-a-thon Oct 4 - Oct 7. Whether or not you decide to participate in it is up to you. If you want to help the county Kerry project, it would be great if you could put the unsourced Kerry category on any Kerry profiles you come across that need sources. Thank you!

Hi Sheila

The Ireland Project (previously the Irish Roots Project) has now changed its structure into Teams. We require everyone with the Ireland Badge to be a member of at least one Team or Sub-Team and our google group.

See for details.

The Teams are :-

1 Categories Team
2 Counties Team
3 Managed Profiles Team
4 Membership Team
5 Profile Improvement Team
6 Topics Team
7 Diaspora

Can you let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project and which team(s) you’d like to join. Please also let me know your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group or confirm you are already a member of the google group.

Many thanks,

Amy Gilpin Ireland Project Coordinator

Hi Sheila,

I've added a few photos and a sticker to William Armstrong's profile. Such a wonderful artist! If you're not a fan of stickers, please feel free to delete. Cheers, Laurie

I love the pictures of your Annie. I see the family resemblance to my grandfather and my cousins.

If one does not know the village or town, just the category brackets Category: County Kerry brackets will suffice.

My best

Hi. You've relieved me of the need to investigate Hugh Davidson. I have been looking for Esther Garbett's elusive cousin, Elizabeth Davidson born London 1822 for some time. (1851 Census). The only possibility I've found is Elizabeth daughter of Alexander Gray Davidson, baptised Chelsea. Do you know if Hugh's brother, Alexander, had a second name Gray? I note that his grandmother was a Grey. I feel it is right but really need more evidence. Regards, Cass
