I am a Millennial genealogist and have researched rigorously for nearly a decade. In terms of my roots, I'm a classic American mutt with branches stretching back to too many countries to count. I love history and enjoy not only researching my family, but also the lives of those who interacted with them.

Hi Wes,

I am letting go of the profile you requested to be added to. (Trusted List.)

Hi Wes.

Are any of the books that you are using as sources for Pre-1700 profiles available to view anywhere? Just using book titles that you have in your possession is not acceptable sourcing. If they are available online, a link to the actual records so others doing research can view them, would be ideal. I see that you are part of the Germany Project, you could ask for sourcing assistance there.

The G2G forum is also a great place to ask for help or advice.

Thanks!

John

Hello John,

I have been creating profiles based on published Parish/Church books and family lists that are described by the Germany Project link below.

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Germany_Project_Resources

Some of the associated primary-source documents are available online, and I think it's a great idea to include those on the profiles. I often circle back and discuss these records (see Müller-9666 as an example). While the majority of the books I am working through are standard publications, there are some instances where there is limited sourcing information (such as unspecified authorship in some family lists/notes). Sourcing is certainly important, and it never hurts to be reminded. Thank you.

Hello Wes, I have been researching my grandfather "Fred Oster" for over 10 years now. I have him working with a Wesley Miller in NY state in the early to mid 1900's. First in Buffalo then in Li NY. Do you have any family from this time period/area ?

I sent a personal email to you regarding the Bible I found in my Mother's possessions - something she purchased at a sale in Austin, MN decades ago. the Bible belonged to Seneca and Elisabeth Stockdale. I would like to return this precious heirloom to it's family where it belongs. Thank you!

Dominikus,

Could you please give me an update on how the Floyd One Name Study is progressing. Thx, Ron Floyd Floyd-1923

posted by Ron Floyd
Hello Ron,

Nothing major to report over the past quarter, as I've been busy with some personal obligations. Still continuing the general goal of categorization of Floyd profiles for future regional-team development and upkeep. A researcher outside of WT has expressed an interest in collaborating, but I'm still determining where their primary interests lie. Thank you for your recent surge in sourcing Floyd profiles, and thanks for reaching out.

Dear Germany Project member,

it's annual check-in time 2023. If you still wish to remain a member of the Germany Project, please reply to this post, by stating this intention. If we don’t hear from you in the next 30 days, your membership badge will be removed. In this case please don't be offended ... you're welcome to rejoin at any time. Please also note, that in order to receive help, with researching your German ancestors, membership is not mandatory. Just ask your questions in the G2G forum and tag them with Germany in order for knowledgeable people to see them.

If you wish to remain a member, we would like to learn more about your perception of the Germany Project in order to achieve a future development according to our members needs and wishes. For this, we created a survey, which we kindly ask you to fill-in.

In case you want to communicate, discuss and receive help about WikiTree in German, you might want to check out the WikiTree category at Compgen’s Discourse as well as the German Discord server Ahnenforschung.

Of course there’s still the official WikiTree Discord server, where we usually talk English. Feel free to learn more about Discord and the server at Help:Discord.

Kind regards from Black Forest

Hello Flo,

I would like to remain in the Germany Project and have completed the survey.

Thank you for your efforts.

It's time for the One Place Studies Project Check-In!

We've put together a survey for you to fill out to check in with you, it will only take a moment as there are only a few questions. Filling out the survey lets us know you are still interested in coordinating your study and provides an opportunity for you to share any suggestions you may have for the project.

If you have decided to step away from your study, please reply to this comment to that effect.

Hello Wes!

I’m conducting the 6-month check in for the US Black Heritage Project. Because we are growing so fast, it’s not always possible for me to see what everyone’s working on.

I’d love to hear what you’ve been working on and if you are still happy being a part of the Heritage Exchange team. Members can change teams at any time.

Emma

Hi,

It’s Germany Project check-in time again! Please respond within the next 2 weeks and let me know if you’re still interested in participating with the Project. Remember, the only requirements for membership in the Germany Project are (1) that you work on at least one German profile every 6 months and (2) that you respond to this check-in.

Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. In your response, we welcome any feedback you may want to give on the project (what you like about it, what you’d like to see us do, what we could change, etc.)

If you ever have any questions, please ask. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Hi Wes,

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!

Sincerely,

Jen Hutton, on behalf of the Ireland Project

Hello, I am at this point desperately trying to connect to my missing sibling. My dad was dating a lady that he knew from High school. He ended up taking a job out of state in Utah. He had no idea that she was carrying child when he left. They lost contact after he left for Utah. The lady attempted to look him up but they were in the wrong place(s) at different times. Please help me find him/her. Their name is unisex and it doesn't state whether they are male or female but We Are connected through D.N.A. on 23andMe.

Hi Dominikus,

I've not heard back from your regarding the England Project check-in. I've sent two messages to you previously. I hope you are ok.

One of the requirements for England Project membership is that you respond to the check-ins. Requirements can be found on the England Project page. I've gone ahead and removed you from the project. We are sorry to see you go but you would be most welcome to rejoin via the G2G sign up post at any time.

Best wishes,

Susie, England Project Leader :-)

Hi Dominikus,

I sent you a message a while ago on behalf of the England Project Leaders and have yet to heard back from you. I hope you are well.

One of the requirements of membership in the England Project is that you respond to the six-monthly check-ins.

If I don’t hear from you in the next week or so I’ll assume you no longer wish to be in the project and go ahead and remove you. You would, of course, be most welcome to rejoin at any time via the G2G sign-up post.

Best wishes,

Susie :-)

On behalf of the England Leaders, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your contributions towards the project in the past six months as a Team Member for Norfolk. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.

Please respond to this message via e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.

Welcome to the County Kerry Sub-Project!

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:County_Kerry

As you may have heard, WikiTree is having a source-a-thon Oct 4 - Oct 7. Whether or not you decide to participate in it is up to you. If you want to help the county Kerry project, it would be great if you could put the unsourced Kerry category on any Kerry profiles you come across that need sources. Thank you!

Hi Dominikus

Apologies it appears the project has an updated link and tag

Thanks Dominikus for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz

Because Pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within a project coordinating them is essential. Please ensure location data matches dates of profile, avoid abbreviations, add sources with citations & links for sources to support the data. From wiki ID go to Research to find sources

The US History Project would be of interest. Adding the tag US_History will connect you

Explore Pre-1700 Projects list to find one that fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or topic please read the goals & tasks of the project
