Hello Grace,

My name is Sarah and I’m the Project Coordinator for the Scotland Project. As you may have heard, we have merged the Scottish Clans project into the Scotland Project. I am contacting you today to find out if you are interested in continuing with us under this new format. If you would like to go forward on the Scottish Clans Team, please reply and let me know which clans you have been working on or would like to work on. I look forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,

Sarah Mason, Scotland PC

Hello Sarah, my husband of 52 years passed away recently and I'm keeping up with my profiles on WikiTree right now, but I won't be able to continue with the Scotland Project. Thank you, Grace

Hello, Grace,

We are sorry to lose you as a member of the Military and War Project, but we understand that life gets busy and interests shift. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin the project in the future if you wish.

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.

Hello, Grace,

It has been a couple of weeks since we contacted you about your participation in the Military and War Project and we are following up to make sure you wish to remain a member.

We understand that interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to the branches they are currently building. If this is the case for you, please let us know.

If we do not hear back from you within the week, we will assume you have moved on to other things for the moment and remove you from the project. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.

Hello, Grace,

On behalf of the Military and War Project Leaders, we are doing a six-month check-in with members.

First, we want to thank you for your past participation in the project. We appreciate your desire to honor your ancestors for their service to their countries, or even for your service, wherever in the world. We hope that your membership has enhanced your WikiTree experience.

Please let me know, by commenting on my profile or sending a private message, if you are still active in the project, and if so, in a general sense how you may have contributed to the main project or any sub-projects within the last couple months.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

I also notice Margo (Hendron) Wahlberg does not match the Lively family at all. We are descended from Rosanna (Cash) Bicknell who married William Clark Bicknell. Mom shows up as a DNA match for all the Cash family members except Mary Ann Cash Lively.
Grace - I think it is interesting that your DNA matches Mary Ann Cash Lively - Cash-229 and my mother Margo (Hendron) Wahlberg matches Mary L Cash Lively - Cash-12774. I think Larry Maggard may have mixed up Mary L Cash and Mary Ann Cash a bit.
Grace - I sort of straightened out the Cash family. You will see several merges that need to be completed but it will all sort out after you and the other people involved put the merges through.
For each parent marked as 'confirmed with DNA,' please ensure that DNA matching information for at least two testers is cited under Sources including where the DNA was matched, the amount of shared DNA, and the predicted relationship.

'Confirmed with DNA' should not be set before the necessary DNA confirmation statement has been added to the child's profile.

You can see what is required under the DNA Confirmation topic of WikiTree's Help pages.

Thank you.
