Saturday afternoon, 27 July 2019, Modesto, CA

TO: David Loring, et al - FROM: Raymond "Ray" Harter direct email: hartermccolm@gmail.com I opened my WikiTree and was pleased to be informed I may join the Irish or Irish Counties group(s). However, I am not sure how to notify the group of my desire to join? I am not the best computer savvy individual; however, I was prompted to visit your page? I would like to "join" and be a "member" of the group. Thank you, Ray Harter

Hi David

On behalf of the Categorization Project Leaders, we are doing a six-month check-in with members. Please let me know if you are still active, and if so, in which ways you have contributed to the project, or a sub-project, within the last two months.

All of us at WikiTree would like to thank you for your contributions and hope that you are enjoying exploring your roots.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi David,

We realise the time has come to dissolve the UK Project in favour of the individual country projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

We are checking in with all UK badge holders to find out which country project(s) you would like to be in so you can collaborate with other members, have the opportunity to select which team(s) you would like to join, and so we can ensure you have all the correct badges.

Please respond by PM to let us know which country project(s) you would like to be in. Please don’t assume we know. We are effectively starting from scratch to make sure no one falls through the cracks.

Once you have done this, the Coordinator for Membership in the relevant country project(s) will be in touch to help get you situated.

Many thanks,
