Hi, How’s it goin’? Im just doing a weekly check-in with my teammates for the Indexers group.

I’ve done a few updates and added a few links to the page and We were approved as an actual project under the US Projects list.

I was wondering if you are tracking your numbers? I’d love to be able to add your numbers to the teampage. Oh we have a cool sticker now that links the page to your profile.

Susan is a volunteer with the 1950 Census Indexers Group.

Thanks Pam!

I haven't done any indexing at the archives. I have reviewed names on FamilySearch. My current total is 344 Names corrected. I'm not sure if that is what you are looking for.

I'll check out the Archives next.

Thanks, Susan

I updated your numbers. Message me as often as you want. I update the page every night around 12 with the newest totals.

Hi Susan,

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!

Happy Sunday!!

Sandy and I have been getting ready for take off!!! She set us up a Discord Channel so we can communicate with each other about our Project and I have been trying to recruit more people and updating our page.

I added a link to a spreadsheet that we can use to track our progress. I am also going to add a shareable one for those who want to make it a joint effort.

Here is the link to our Discord channel

Let me know if you want added to the group spreadsheet.

Blessed Be!!!

Hi Susan! Just wanted to let you know that I fixed up the parents of Ebenezer Smith Phelps (1792-1882) per the information cited in his profile - it looks like he was accidentally attached as the son of his grandparents. I also found a couple of probable dupes for his grandparents and will propose those merges.

Kind regards,

Vicky Majewski

Hi Susan!

Thanks for contributing to Puritan Great Migration profiles over the last six months. Every little bit helps, so please keep those edits coming!

Like all WikiTree projects we check in with team members twice per year and it's that time again. Please respond within the next two weeks to let me know:

  1. If you'd like to continue as a PGM project team member
  2. If you're happy with the team you're on (Research and/or Profile Improvement) or if you'd like to make a change
  3. Optionally, what you like since the reboot back in May or what you think could be improved. This could be something about Discord, or Google Groups, or managed profile spreadsheets, or challenge participation or really anything. If you like everything the way it is, you can let me know that too :)

If you'd like to tell me about a particular project or family you're working on, I'd love to hear about that as well.

Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks!

What is the date for consideration as early settler of New York?
The Dutch established New Amsterdam in 1626 and then the English took over in 1664. The New Netherlands Project, I believe goes from around 1609 through 1664.

Hi - I must be missing something since McIlwain-162 has one source, which is a reference to a GRONI death record from 1932, which is not accessible to the public without purchasing the certificate - are there marriage records you are referring to with different religions noted (i.e. for their marriage)? If so it would be great if you could add the source. The father of McElwain-223 is McElwane-2, who is a farmer and flax scutcher and not a labourer, so again I might be missing something - but it would be much appreciated if any proof of them being different people could be added to the respective profiles. Thanks, Jason
posted by Jason Cottrell
I purchased the marriage record from GRONI. I uploaded the image from the marriage record on the page for McIlwain-162.

I see that on the Census, the father of McElwain-223 is listed as a farmer. However, on the birth records on Irish Genealogy, he was listed as a labourer.

This is the link to the image of the marriage record which lists both McIlwain-162 and his father as farmers. McIlwain-162.jpg

posted by Susan McNamee
Fantastic, thank you so much - a thousand apologies if I missed the cert when looking! I identified James' birth registration and the family in the 1911 census and added those sources also.
posted by Jason Cottrell
No worries! I'm so glad you were able to find his birth information and 1911 Census information. That's excellent!
posted by Susan McNamee
Hi Susan - can you let me know the basis for "Susan McNamee rejected a match of McIlwain-162 and McElwain-223" just so I can add it to my profile - thanks!
posted by Jason Cottrell
Hi Jason - I based it on the occupation of the father listed on the marriage record and the birth record. McIlwain-162 lists his father as a farmer. McElwain-223 lists his father as labourer. They were also married in the Presbyterian Church (McIlwain-162) and the 1911 Census on McElwain-223 lists them as being Roman Catholic. If you don't agree with this, I can defintely set them back up as an unmerged match and note both profiles with this information. Thanks!

Hi, Susan!

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!

Susan, I had a WikiTree account in years ago that I abandoned & canceled. I've started that tree here again recently and notice that in adding people to the new tree there are suggestions that I merge duplicate-named people. That causes me to wonder if I am creating these situations because the galactic WikiTree would have retained individuals who I had added via my old tree four or five years ago. Recent examples are my paternal grandmother <Liebau-1> and <Liebau-25>. Certainly, another person could be working on the same ancestors as I am and that's the reason for what appears to be duplicated individuals. I've not yet gotten my head totally around the "one big tree" idea at WikiTree, so if you have ideas or other references I can look at I'll appreciate your counsel.
