Great cook. Lousy housekeeper. Crazy cat lady. Kind to all living things except large spiders.

That being said, my interest in genealogy all started over 30 years ago when I looked at my "baby book" that my mother had kept. There was a small family tree that only went back to my grandparents, and I found it to be very sad. There had to be more. And there was!

After floundering for many years, I joined Wikitree. It was mainly out of boredom, but most of all frustration with the unsourced "trees" on the online genealogy site I had subscribed to. It was the best thing I ever did, and many brick walls have been torn down.

I have learned a LOT since then. Most notably? Sourcing Sourcing SOURCING! Like so many others, I learned the hard way that online trees and/or FindaGrave memorials (those with no information whatsoever) should never be used as primary sources, especially on pre-1800 profiles! Proper sources for Birth, Marriage, and Death are the only things that will separate fact from fiction.

I have mostly German and Irish ancestry (so far), and I love meeting new cousins!

Currently working on: Unknowns, missing birth locations, and playing connect-the-dots with my German families.

Wales Project Semi-Annual Check-In

Thank you for being a member of the Wales Project. You may recall membership requires at least one contribution to project goals during each 6 month period. A contribution includes creation of and modification to Wales related profiles.

Have you been able to contribute?

It is recognized some members are active. Thank you for your work. (There is no viable method to determine which members have been active in the Wales Project.)

Do you desire to stay on your current project team(s)? Which teams are you most active in? Are there other teams you would like to join or become more active in?

Also, do you have any feedback on what the project is doing well and anything we could do better in the future?

Hi Stuart!

Yes, I have been plucking away at the Universal mining disaster, as well as trying to get profiles from the Cardiff Blitz connected. For now, I am happy to stay in Glamorgan.

I am fairly new to the project and am still learning my way around, but so far I like what I see.

Right now I mainly do connecting, but hoping to do more in the coming year.

Cheers, Fran :)

Thanks Fran for responding and for your contributions towards the Wales Project goals.

I will contact you separately about the wonderful Cardiff Blitz page. As a lifelong student of WWII it was only recently I became aware of the bombing of Cardiff.

Hi Frances,

I'm contacting you regarding your "Blum" family interest. I have had a look at your tree, and your Blum family does not appear to have any connections with mine, but thought I'd message you anyway. Long time search for the Dutch/German ancestors of my Great x 2 Grandfather Peter Blum, who migrated from Rotterdam, Netherlands to Melbourne, Australia in 1857.

The United Kingdom Project has not been active since 2018 and we are now completely closing it down. We are removing all UK project badges. If you still have an interest in the UK and have not already joined another project, then you will need to join the England, Ireland, Scotland or Wales Project by answering one or more of their G2G posts. If your interest is in the British Isles and British Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories, then please contact me directly.

Hi Fran,

I hope you're ok. I miss you!!! Thank you so much for all your contributions to WikiTree in the last six months, and especially to the Wales Project. It’s been wonderful to have you as part of the team as we work together to increase the quality and quantity of Welsh Profiles.

You don’t seem to have selected which team(s) you would like to be on. Please have a look at the project page: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Wales and let me know your choices so I can introduce you to your Team Leader(s). Do you have any questions? What can we do to support you? Do you want to continue in the Wales Project moving forwards?

Please can you also private message me your e-mail so I can add you to the Google group (for my new e-mail account).

I look forward to hearing back from you with all the above.

Thanks once again,

Hi Frances

Wishing you a Happy and prosperous New Year. Thank you for all the work you have done to improve the English profiles on wikitree.

Just checking in with you to ask if you wish to remain a member of the England Data Doctor Team. Appreciate it if you could let me know

Janet and Derrick

England Data Doctor Team Leaders  

Hi Janet,

Yes, you can keep me on. I have recently taken an interest in error 205. Very challenging! Thanks :)

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: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Template:Mining_Disasters

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

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 ;)

Thanks!

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) https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Noel-2367. 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?

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.
