Best Regards, Betty

Hi Beryl, thanks for trying to correct the place names on South African profiles. Referring to the corrections made on this profile, Cape Winelands, Western Cape, South Africa did not exist. 'Cape Winelands' is a [fictional] place created by Geni, 'Western Cape' is the current province for the region, and 'South Africa' did not exist before 1900. So when there is a data base error alert, the correct place names can be found here. Kind regards, Philip van der Walt

Thanks for all the Essex parish register info on the Freeborns. Sheer luck that I happened to look at the Freeborns and Weavers right after you added those.

Nancy, I've been chasing the Cornells in Saffron Walden today.

Do you need anyone else in Maldon?

Hi Beryl!

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!

Hi Brad, yes, I want to stay as a PGM team member. I am always interested, I search the available parish registers on from time to time. If only every county was available we could probably id the origins of more PGMs. I've been busy on the 1776 project recently so have not spent too much time on PGM. Thank you for all your efforts, they are noticed and appreciated.

Thanks Beryl for your update on Perlina Green. I am a decendant and currently live in the area where she lived. I was also married in Cincinnati 180 years (to within one day) of her wedding day!

Beryl, Thank you for adding the information about Sgt. Jacob Royall, who died at Valley Forge, to his daughter Rebecca Royal Parker's profile. Jacob is my 5th great grandfather through his daughter Mary. You and I are cousins on both my father's and mother's side.  :)

Thank you for adding information re: Daniel York with 1st Regiment, Ulster County militia, and sharing additional family names. His younger brother, Johannes, is my 6th great grandfather. The York family (with name variants) has been difficult to trace beyond the elder Daniel York (or Jurk?) 1691-??. Good to get the names out there in WikiTree!

Thank you for your research on John Newgate and his wives. It's so much clearer than trying to plow through!
Beryl, Thank you for adding to the profile of Joseph Horton

I am checking in on behalf of the 1776 Project to announce the new project membership requirements and to verify that you are still interested in being a member of the project. All project members are being asked to join one of the project teams and also to make at least one project contribution every 6 months. We are also asking all project members to join the project's Google Group for project communications.

If you are interested in remaining with the Project, please reply to this comment or send me a message, request to join the Google Group, and let us know what team you would like to participate on.

We really appreciate your contributions on WikiTree, and thank you for all your hard work. If you have any questions, please ask. We would also love to hear any feedback you may have for the project.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

I am still very involved with 1776. I've been reviewing the error list ( an doing some corrections to the 1776 stickers. In some cases I find I'm doing additional research on the patriot.

What project can I fit into? I'm mostly doing New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania patriots.

posted by Beryl Meehan
I've added you to the stickers team!

First and foremost, I appreciate all of the work you have done on this site! It is extremely helpful, as it is a pool of information that we can pass down to our children.

But I do have a question. I do believe that SILAS RAWSON (1739-1819) had a son named CALVIN RAWSON (1777-1857), which is my 4th GGGF. Is there a reason he is not posted as SILAS not having CALVIN? Or perhaps it is operator error in my navigation?

I am performing active research on this "branch," and am trying to bounce all information off of as many platforms as possible; meaning that I am trying to verify my found information with other sources. I just wanted to make sure that my information is correct. However, if it is not, I would like to know as well.

Any input woud be appreciated, and again, thank you so much for posting!

Thank you.

Hi Beryl,

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.

Regards Joan

Thank you for adding the DAR source for Philip Walter. I had forgotten he was in the American Revolution.

Hi Beryl! Thanks for catching this match. It appears that I created the second profile. I don't know why I didn't see the original one created by Corey. Thanks for your suggestions. Cindy
posted by Cindy (Brown) Murphy
I agree Beryl - It looks like those are Jane Cheney's parents, but that whole family line needs a lot of work. There's hardly a single primary source between them!
posted by Jo Fitz-Henry
Hi Beryl,

What is your source for the children you added to Richard Withington? It seems to be missing a few...?

posted by S (Hill) Willson
I have added Savage. The profile already notes that some of the children on FAG.

I see a pedigree file at familysearch has additional children but I do not know they are sourced (or accepted by other researchers), looking at Richard's will notes.

Beryl, thanks for your heads up on surname Scott. I found profile for daut. Elizabeth Scott-39085 also; however after digging around for about an hour, I have not found a profile for immigrant Robert Scott. subscription. He has a sketch in GMB.

Unless I hear back from you in the next few minutes, I'm going ahead and create a profile for him... and link daughters. however, very unusual he doesn't already have a profile??? Did you happen to find one for him?

Thanks, Cheryl for adding the father. I just came upon the profile in looking at Scotts. No connection to me.
posted by Beryl Meehan
you're welcome, Beryl. I made a new profile for the wife, Elizabeth Unknown also.

She married (2nd) a John Sweet who is in the GMD on p. 325 - probably John Sweet migrated in 1638 to Boston. I can't find a profile for him either. seems weird. I assumed we had profiles already created for these people!

Beryl ---

I just noticed your editing last week of information in the life of Timothy Woodruff Jr. (abt.1716-1798). It's interesting to find others with information about one's own ancestors, and this is one of mine. He's my 7th or 8th great-grandfather. Regards, James Wright Erickson - 532

Hi Beryl I see you posted an addition to the family of William D Hagerman (his daughter Elizabeth's son Seely) my Grandfather John J Hagerman (1799) is often added to his children and there is no reason I know of to do that. I don't connect through DNA directly to them my closest Y DNA connections are Abraham Hagaman's family in NJ which of course makes possible links to Frans Hagaman or I have wondered about Joseph Hageman died i 1799 that seems to have had his daughter live with ? William in OVid... and maybe a son some document point out a John (maybe C) and Martha Hagaman with children in Carmel< NY and a john present for the birth of a son right day wrong year in Seneca county but David... Our John named his oldest John Clark then followed other naming rules which point at a John and Martha as his parents...There is no reason to think he was John Vj those qoutes occue when his name was spelled joh V j Hagerman where someone replaced the N with a V

Hi Beryl,

We're sad to inform you that the Black Sheep Project is being dissolved. All BSP's subprojects will be moved in pieces under the Notables Project as categories and perhaps as Teams, depending on interest. Witch Trials will become a subproject of Notables.

Your BSP project member badge will soon be removed. If you'd like to join the Notables project, please let one of us know and we'll get you a Notables badge.

Please email either of us if you have any questions and if you'd like to join the Notables project.

Thanks, Susan McNamee & Traci Thiessen ~co-leaders, Black Sheep Project

Please do add me to the Notables Project and give me the new "Notables" Badge. Thanks!!

I just added the Notables Project member badge to your profile. Make sure to add Notables to the G2G tags you follow.

Thanks, Traci

Beryl -- I'm taking a little tme to research the Woodruff line, and found that you had done some important inserting - seeing the copy of the will of Timothy Woodruff Sr. It seems like time to offer a "Thank you".

It's been quite a while since I have done much looking/sourcing/... in WikiTree, and the chance to respond to "Pre-1700 Self-Certification". Time to "go for it". Thanks for your being there.
