Hi Frances,

It's that time of the year again: check-in time! As England Project Leaders, we like to check in with you every six months or so to see how things are progressing. Back in May, we didn't ask for a response due to the rapid emergence of Covid-19 because we understood that people's lives were changing rapidly. While we are still living in a Covid world, we do need to hear back from you this time around

First of all, how are you doing? What are you currently working on? Are you happy with the team(s) you're in, or would you like to change things up?

Secondly, we're looking for some feedback on the Google Group and our Discord server. Do you use either or both of these? If you don't use either, why not? Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve participation and collaboration, either generally or for you personally?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Lizzie, Amy, Joan

England Project Leaders

Well hello Elizabeth!

I will answer in order:

1. I am very well, and thank you asking.

2. I am currently working on connecting, gedcoms, mining disasters, unknowns, and whatever else I may happen across. But mainly connecting.

3. I seem to be in between roles atm but very happy with what I am doing. Although I think I need to be on the Cornwall team instead of Wales. I love working on Cornwall profiles. I do not like Wales.

4. I use both the GG and Discord regularly.

5. I am full of suggestions for participation! :

*We need more challenges. Or maybe little mini-Thons (Barron-a-Thon, Unknown-a-Thon, etc etc)? The Halloween challenge really brought people together and it would be great to keep that momentum going. Maybe not always on that level, since Ian had to put sooooo much work into that one!

*Discord. We have a lot of members in Discord who don't use the GG, and they miss out on a lot. Can we have a channel on Discord (similar to the G2G channel) that would highlight some of the GG posts? Only the important things, such as challenges, new appointments, etc. There are also a lot of channels on Discord that are rarely used. Maybe consolidate the regional channels into a single Counties channel, since everyone strays outside of their counties from time to time? Thinking out loud here.

*Profile Improvements. I would love to see an "Unknowns" team since it's part of our stats. Or a team to add missing locations, or a team to mark things "unsourced". They could all tie in with the Gedcom team somehow? Thinking out louder.

6. You didn't ask but I think the England Project is definitely headed in the right direction. We have wonderful leadership and the possibilities of what can be achieved are endless.

Putting my pom-poms down for now,

Fran, head cheerleader and token Yank

Frances, I need a little help with a mining disaster sticker. The profiles for the 10 miners killed in the Eureka Pit have this sticker:
Mining Emblem
Frances (McHugh) Weidman was killed in the Eureka Pit Copper Mine Dynamite Explosion on 7-Jul-1912

It was good for a while, now it generates "896 Unknown parameter in template" and I don't know what the error is and how to fix it.

Hi Jo,

Yes, there has been a problem with a lot of stickers lately! I just asked one of the leaders and she said that some of them have an extra line that links to a flag. That line should be removed. Also, the word "Worldwide" needs to be removed.

I also just stumbled across this page:

Hope this helps but if you have any problems, please let me know :)


Hi, Frances!

Thank you for your participation in October’s 2020 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.

Keep up the great work!

Hi Fran,

Your England Leaders are completing the six monthly check in with all team members. I wanted to thank you for your work on English Profiles and particularly your work as Membership PC and all you do for England Project teams.

These are unprecedented and difficult times, and we understand as Project Leaders that your situation may have changed somewhat in the last few months. What we are all able to/ wish to contribute on Wikitree has changed. Please let me know if you are happy with your current role and team choice or if you wish to do something additional or different. Thank you again on behalf of all the project leaders for everything you do.


Hi Joan,

Totally happy with what I am doing, especially mining disasters at the moment. Once things get back to normal, I will probably join another county or two ;)

Thanks, Fran :)

Hi there, Frances!

Thanks so very much for your participation in the spring Clean-a-thon! Every suggestion you cleared (over 700!) made our Tree that much better. The WikiTree community appreciates YOU!

The Global Cemeteries Project is currently undergoing our member check-in and wanted to verify that you are still active and interested in being a member of the project. Are you currently assigned to or working with one of our Cemetery Teams? If not, is there a particular Team or area you are interested in participating with? I would be delighted to help you get setup in one or more of our collaborative teams!

We use Google Groups for internal project collaboration, so if you are not yet setup for access feel free to submit a join request and we will get that approved as quick as possible. We also ask that members check their follwed tags to make sure you are following the correct project tag (CEMETERIES) so you don't miss any disucssions in G2G.

Last, but not least, we would like to thank you for all of your contributions to WikiTree and let you konw that any ideas or suggestions for improvement you may have for the Global Cemeteries Project would greatly appreciated!

I look forward to hearing form you soon!

Hi Steve!

I am active on the Illinois cemeteries team; just waiting for warmer weather to go out and take pics.

I'm already in the GG and following the tag so I think I'm covered ;)


Fran :)

Thanks for checking in, and thank you for you all of your contributions!

Hi Fran, Sort of a newbie here. I would like to add an English Notable: Blanche Elizabeth Mary (Noel) Murphy Lady (1845 - 1881) Not quite sure how to post the announcement.

Thanks! Also, I would like to join the Norfolk Team. I am on the Rutland team now and working on a few of their un-sourced profiles.

I have a question about profiles- I have posted quite a few sources for Lady Blanche Murphy and still see the yellow block saying the profile is un-sourced. Why is it that wiki does not see the sources listed?

posted by Ellen (Newell) McGrath
Thanks for giving me the LNAB of Susan Semper nee Sorfleet. I was a bit slow to respond, but very grateful anyway!

Incidentally, thanks also for your link-up from Francis Semper to his father Robert Semper. This is the first link-up anybody has made to my stuff on WikiTree.

Hi Frances, 

Wondered as the Windsor Warriors are not participating if you would like to join the Sandringham Strollers for the Scan-A-Thon on the January 10, at 8 AM (ET) and runs until Monday, January 13, 2020

If you would like to join us please register Here 

Look forward to working with you during this fun event.

Thankyou Frances. You spotted a double-up in my entries. That could possibly have caused me and others a bit of confusion. It's good to know people are together in trying to be as accurate as possible in their search for family history.

Kind regards. Dave I

Hi Frances,

You added a "Do not edit" message to the profile for Henry Deadfield a few months ago - is this still needed? I'd like to add some sources.
