Hi Ben,

We're contacting you for the annual Australia Project membership checkin. We really appreciate your involvement in the Project in the last year. Thank you so much for all your help to improve Australian profiles on WikiTree.

Please could you reply to this message, or send me a private message to let us know if you'd like to stay on in the Project, and if you'd like to make any changes to the teams that you belong to. The teams are listed on Australia Project Teams.

If you've moved on to other things for the moment, that's absolutely fine. We'd appreciate if you'd let us know so that we can remove you from the membership list.

We're always happy to receive any ideas or suggestions that you have to make our project even better.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

The Australia Project Leadership Team ~ Gillian, Margaret and Veronica

Thank you Margaret. Yes, please keep me on the Australia Project, focusing on Victoria. I'm not on as much because of life, but every so often I work on it some more. Thank you again. Ben.

Good morning,

I see you've been adding Find A Grave memorials sources to profiles. That's excellent! WikiTree Plus can do a lot of neat things when it can see a Find A Grave memorial number in a source, such as hinting additional relationships, letting us know we may have typo'd a birth/death date, or indicating that we may have accidentally cited a different family member's memorial.

Some of the ones you've added cite an index of Find A Grave memorials, like Ancestry's index or FamilySearch's index, and not the source citation from the bottom of the memorial itself. Unfortunately these indexes include neither the URL nor memorial number in their citation so WikiTree Plus can't work its magic. This tends to happen more frequently when importing GEDCOM files.

Help:Find A Grave#Links in source citations has a great guide on how to cite the original Find A Grave memorial, and it's really easy too -- just paste it right over! :) There's an extra step if you'd like a little pizzaz in how it's linked (see above article), but the additional features unlock with or without that last step.

Wishing all the best to you and yours,


Edit: typo

Hello Ben,

It's time for the annual Australia Project membership checkin. Thank you so much for contributing to the project and Australian profiles on WikiTree during the last year. We really appreciate you!

If you would like to stay in the project, please reply to this message or send me a private message to let us know that you would like to stay on. Alternatively, if your WikiTree and research interests have moved away from Australia, please let us know and we can remove you from the membership list for the moment. You will, of course, be very welcome to rejoin the project down the track whenever you want to.

We are also keen to know if you want to make any changes to the team or teams that you want to focus on. Take a look on Australia Project Teams to see what teams there are to choose from. If you want to discuss this, or have any questions or suggestions about the Australia Project we'd love to hear your ideas.

Thanks for taking the time to get back to us!

Thank you Gillian. I'm still slowly working my way through improving profiles, generally connected within my CC7. Managed to get past the 2000 mark, and recently somebody closeby has been adding numbers too, which is helping my number. Someone paid for me to get a DNA test done, which I am waiting for the results, and it has given me a temporary account on Ancestry, so for a couple of months, I am working as quick as possible, to download as many sources as I can get, before my time runs out. Then it'll be back here, to add all these sources that I didn't have before. So, yes. Please keep me on the Australia project, with my main focus on Victoria, though I often stray into neighbouring states. If I could add a suggestion. Could we please put a notice out to all those people following the tag Victoria, to instead switch to Victoria_Australia, to differentiate with those following the name Victoria, or following another Victoria. Thank you for the continued team work. Ben.

Hi Ben,

Great to hear from you! It sounds like you've been really busy. I'm so glad that you're staying with us. Thanks again for your hard work.

Thanks also for the suggestion about the tags. I understand where you're coming from - it can be hard to filter the G2G posts down. Have you had a lot of problem with Victoria as a tag?


posted by Gillian Thomas
Gillian. Haven't really had many problems with the Victoria tag. It is rarely an issue. But, because the other tag exists (Victoria_Australia), it would seem to me, to make sense to use the second tag, if only everyone would be consistent about it. I had more problems when I tried to follow England, or English, or whatever it was. I got so many notifications everyday, for people commenting on the surname, that I stopped following it. Besides which, it has been easier to stick with family research in Australia, because stepping back to the old country, takes a lot of extra work. Ben.

In what to most seems to be uncertain times, these times have not been uncertain to those who are students of the Bible. This Corona virus is not to be mistaken as a sign of the times, however, the way governments of the world have responded to this virus, makes it obvious that the fulfilment of Biblical prophecies is coming upon us quickly. My expectation is that the true church will be removed off the world by God, so that punishment of the world can quickly follow. How long it takes to begin, I don't know, but it will last for seven years, and then the world will be brought to it's final war, in a day. If you read this before the church is removed, you need to trust in Jesus for your salvation. If you read this after we are removed, you need to start reading the end of the Bible, from James to Revelation. You need to start looking for instruction from the two witnesses in Jerusalem, and reach out to the Jewish witness who start preaching Jesus. Do not take the mark of beast in Revelation 13. When the Prince to come sets up his statue in the Jewish temple, your fate will be sealed, it will be too late. Look up my Facebook profile, if you want to find more details, but most importantly, start digging into your Bible.

My current speculation is that the rapture of the church could occur at pentecost 4/5th Jun 2022, and tribulation may begin 26th Sept 2022. I am not a prophet, this is speculation. Educated perhaps. If this occurs, you can see that this message was posted before the 9th April 2022. This first paragraph was posted, earlier than that, but hidden from those not on the trusted list. Aliens do not exist, but satan and demons do. Don't believe the lies, grab a Bible and start focusing on the end of Ezekiel, Joel, Zechariah, and the last 8 books in the New Testament.

There is further speculation that a rapture event may happen at the Feast of Trumpets, which is later in the year, in September, before the start of the new Shemah cycle on 26th. We will see. When it comes down to it, how well do we actually know how accurately years were kept track of, particularly B.C., but with current world events, it certainly looks like the time is extremely close.

To my children, if you are left behind. We loved you, though you rejected us. We loved you enough to not compromise on truth. If you read this after we are gone. Do not take the jab. I would much rather have my head taken off, and know that I didn't reject God, than take the coming mandate, and be rejected by God in eternity. Don't be deceived.

So many things are lining up for Feast of Trumpets. Queen's death and Charles coronation, announcement of a one world religion, including places of worship being constructed for joint worship of combined religions in the new one world religion, announcement of a cashless currency taking over, the announcement of red heffers being ready for sacrifice. It is quite possible, that at the end of the blowing of trumpets for the feast this coming weekend, 24-26 September 2022, the rapture of the true church could quite conceivably occur.

Why there seems to be so much? The history of sin on earth will be approximately 6000 years old in about 7 years. It is speculated that God may use a 7000 year time table for dealing with sin. Israel became a nation 75years ago, which would seem to be an indication that things need to wrap up quickly. Passages in Daniel and Revelation seem to point to Prince Charles coat-of-arms, which would make the death of the Queen, curious timing. The apparent Shemitah year which would seem to have some truth, because of 9/11 and the financial collapse of 2008. A gathering of world religions earlier this month, declaring a New World Religion is being implemented. The push for a cashless society in congress the other day. The practise of forced vaccination over the last two years, to psychologically prepare people for the Mark of the Beast. The red heifers arriving in Israel this week, and being available as of the Feast of Trumpets, for sacrifice, to prepare the priests for a new temple. Israeli Prime Minister calling for peace talks in the UN a few days ago. Feast of Trumpets ceremony over the next couple of days, where a last trump is blown, or anticipated. Lots and lots of things seem to be pointing to something. Lastly, lots of people coming out with fake news, and lots of speculation, could either be to discredit a real event coming, or to stop people listening to fantatical Christians again. I believe the rapture will precede the tribulation. All this seems to point to something, but curiously, none of it is hard facts, unless something actually happens.

Update: With hours to go now, there is lots of reasons why the timing could be off. But, whether now or not. Eventually it will happen. We'll see. Feast of Trumpets 2023 is looking more likely, with many new things lining up.

A day with the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as a day. So we see that God's program is probably 7000years. Take 1000 years off for the Millenium, and 7 years for the tribulation. We currently seem to be at year 5992/3, plus 2000 years since Christ died and rose. Plus all these things shall finish in the generation of people who came into the land of Israel in 1948, of which it is now 74years. Everything has continued to escalate around the world. Keep looking at events in Israel, and with their neighbours, and Russia and Iran, Date calculations may have been incorrect for one reason or another, but things still must be close. It really can't go much longer.

September 1st, 2023 UPDATE: Things are looking a lot more inline for Feast of Trumpets, September 15-17, 2023. UN is passingh a new 7 year treaty, called the 2030 Agenda, being pushed by K.Charles3 & Pope, on 18-19 Sept. There are signs suggesting that Revelation 12 is being currently fulfilled in the stars. There is a stronger push toward the days of Noah, and days of Lot. Wars and rumours of wars. There has been an increase in earthquakes and natural disasters, not to mention the C-19, which there are talks about coming back around October. Not to mention the increased talk of aliens (which are really just demons). If these things come to pass, grab a Bible from wherever you can get one. The gospel won't be the same as before. Concerntrate on James through Revelation in the Bible. Should also see Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38-39 come into alignment. Revelation 13-14 is something to more particularly pay attention to. Do not take the mark of the beast, and expect to be beheaded for the priviledge. Follow the true witnesses. This will be a time of great deception.

Dear Ben,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing its first annual check-in with our project members. Please review the following and let us know if you are content where we have placed you or would like to be more involved.

We are in the process of transitioning to a team structure. There will be three participant PIP Teams to start -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. There is also the Voyage Team which guides new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team.

You're currently identified as a member of the Biography Team Level 1, working on profiles from your own watchlist and whatever else you find. Biography Teams Levels 2 and 3 will work on designated profiles for notables (Level 3) and everyday people (Level 2). Please let us know if you would like to help with a higher-level Bio Team or one of the other Teams.

We would also like to invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. If you request to join our GoogleGroup, please be sure to include your Wiki ID. Neither is required; we also use the Profile_Improvement tag in G2G for Project announcements.

We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project and WikiTree. The Project’s mission is to:

Make profiles beautiful! We clean up messy biography sections and sources, and try to set standards for attractive, useful, and well-written biographies, starting with those we manage.

We know you’re working on profiles *smile* We would like to hear about successes you’ve had toward the Project’s goals. We would also appreciate any feedback you might have to help us improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or privately via private message to either of us.

Hi Ben,

The Australia Project leadership team are carrying out our annual check-in to see how you are going in the project. We'd really like to thank you for all your work on Australian profiles over the past year! We think we've made great progress in 2020/21 with your assistance.

Please could you reply to this message, to let us know if you would like to stay on in the project and if you are happy with your current role and team involvement. If you would like to do something additional or different, take a look on the Australia Project page to see what other options there are.

It would also be great to get any feedback or suggestions that you have to improve the project.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards

Margaret Haining Membership Coordinator

Thank you Margaret. I would be pleased to continue on as I have been. I have been struggling with current events, to get a lot done, I am continuing to plod along with improvements to Australian profiles.

Actually. I was wondering the other day. As far as Victoria is concerned, would it be unreasonable to make a request to Ales, to include all the townships from the Victorian BDM Abbreviations page. Also further to that, whether it would be possible for Victorian profiles, to automatically have those townships come up as Suggested locations, if we typed in those "Abbreviations, Victoria". It would make it easier for us Victorian's, on the occasions when we don't know where the abbreviations are pointing to.

posted by Ben Molesworth
Thank you for responding to the check-in message, and for your ongoing contributions to WikiTree and the Australia Project, they are much appreciated!

Are you talking about the drop-down location search when you add a place of birth, death, marriage? If so, they come from Family Search, I believe, not from the WT system. Or do you mean something different?

Regards, Margaret

When we attempt to type in a location, for Location of Birth, or Marriage or Death, it comes up with an auto complete list of locations, which we can click on, to auto complete the location. This also seems to pull locations in line with the location systems which Ales has in place.

I think firstly, the Victorian BDM Abbreviation page, could help Ales to have a complete list of town locations, available for the auto-complete fields. But also I was thinking, before I became aware of the Abbreviation page, I often didn't know what an abbreviation stood for, and so just left the place, as the abbreviation, as given in the Vic BDM site. Perhaps we could get the Victorian locations entered from the Abbreviation page, and maybe, if we type in the location, (looking for an auto-complete response) as the abbreviations given, that WT could be arranged to recognise the ABB, Victoria, and auto offer the complete Town name, based on the list of abbreviations.

I hope that is a little clearer. I'm not sure if Ales is even aware of that Abbreviations site, or if adding towns like that, is something that is handled by you on the Australian pages.

posted by Ben Molesworth
The auto complete list that comes up when entering data into the BDM location fields comes from Family search,

The listings Ales uses for the Data Doctor suggestions are different, he keeps listings of acceptable values that won't create an error, eg. a location xxxx, Victoria or xxxx, Colony of Victoria, or xxxx, Victoria, Australia would all be ok, but xxxx, Vic, Australia would attract an error (suggestion).

There was talk in the google group a while back of getting FS to add the Australian locations with colony instead of state before 1900, (I know that's not what you're suggesting) similar to how the uk ones are done, but no-one volunteered to take it on. I'm not sure what the process would be with FS, you can add a new place, but again, that's not what you are saying.

Maybe worth you raising it in the google group?

Cheers Margaret

Hi Ben and Margaret,

Sorry to chime in here, was just reading about this area of place names and I am not a great subscriber to the FS suggestions at times as there are often incorrect. Ben has a valid point with the Victorian place names. The Vic BDM abbreviations place names is a good resource, but also that often does not have all the correct information either or sometimes does not have the abbreviation. I totally agree with the idea of 'Colony' names etc, especially with those of convict origins where they were transported to Norfolk Island, New South Wales Colony - as this is never an option, it needs to be typed. That also goes along with Tasmania being Van Diemen's Land first. That would be great if it was available as an auto suggestion too. The other thing I was thinking about was when you have an actual address of a birth or death it being able to accept the house number, street, suburb etc. ie. put in 5 Smith Street, Collingwood, Victoria, Australia and it would still auto generate the suburb, State, Country as normal but also accept the address. Just a thought!. Thanks for all the work you do. Ben is my inspiration cousin! Keryn

posted by Keryn Keane
Some great thoughts though Keryn. I'm not sure if Margaret is the right person for it, but she is certainly extremely knowledgeable, and a great help. It may even be worth mentioning that point in a G2G at some stage. It's probably been mentioned before. I know I've seen it raised before.
posted by Ben Molesworth
Ben and Keryn, the drop down suggestions and location field names have been discussed in G2G at different times, there are many differing opinions and preferences. I'm planning to do a post about location field names in the project google group this week, so watch out for that.

Cheers, Margaret

Regarding Emily Bourman-41. I grew up near Mintaro. It should be possible to answer the G2G Bourman Australia brick wall question. I make note that Mintaro sat on one of the main routes to export copper ore from the Burra Mine. I suspect that Fred Bourman was one of the many drivers of bullock drays that carried ore before the steam trains reached Burra in 1870.

I am amused by the high capability of Wikitree users that have responded to Gary Bourman's question with a lot of good information.

posted by Steve Thomas
Hi Ben, I think the best suggestion for your category request is to use this form, and include the link to your G2G post. It goes to the Categorization Project leader, who will give you an answer. I'm happy to do all the routine Aussie ones, but I'm not sure where this would fit into the existing structure.

Cheers, Margaret

Thank you Margaret. I agree. I just wasn't sure where to send it, considering I wasn't sure who should handle it either. Thank you for the link, and for your help.

Hi Ben, which category did you want the name changed? Category: St Arnaud, Victoria is already spelt with the "St"

Cheers, Margaret

Hmm. Thank you Margaret. I was sure it was coming up as Saint yesterday. But it is certainly St today. Thank you for the great job you are doing. I'm hoping that it is helpful, my trying to find as many details as I can, when putting in a cemetery request. If it helps speed up your job. Thank you again.
posted by Ben Molesworth
All good, what you are doing with the category requests is great, thank you. Cheers, Margaret :)
Ben, awarding you another Family Star. It's such a great collaboration we have going. I'm so lucky to have found a cousin on Wikitree that is like minded and resourceful and a keen eye for accuracy. Onward and updward! Kez.
posted by Keryn Keane
I didn't know you could award the Family Star a second time. Thank you for that. You've been doing a fantastic job though too Keryn. You've been making the profiles look much much better.
posted by Ben Molesworth
Well blow me down if you can't add the Family Star again...Oh well...It's added again in the Virtual universe!. At least we know you're a family Star multiple times. As far as the profiles formatting, you know that's just me as a stickler for correctness...:)
posted by Keryn Keane
Just a quick request, if a cemetery category (or any category) doesn't already exist, ie. you get that banner message when you save your edit, don't add it to the profile, unless you are going to complete the category creation. It gives you a "red" category on the profile, and adds to the category error list. Much easier to just add the request to our page, as you have been doing. I've fixed up Skipton cemetery so it's all good now.

Thanks heaps, cheers, Margaret

Hi! Just a reminder to change {{Sandbox Liz4 to {{Relationship Sticker & {{Sandbox Liz5 Sticker to {{Connection

I still have coding that works to show Relationship & Connection in my Sandbox pages, but I won't for much longer & it is different than the coding in the live pages. When I was testing the changes, I opened my profile page in one tab and edited it in another. By comparing a preview of the edited page to the live page in the other tab, I could see what changed. See examples on Template: Relationship Sticker & Template: Connection Sticker to get the coding to change the image (or change to an image of your choosing... image=).

Cheers, Liz

P.S. No, I don't know that you're using the old template on your page because I can see your page. I can see that you are because the "pages using the template" link from Liz4/Liz5 says you are. Liz5's also says it's being used on Russell-3909, Molesworth-181, Molesworth-182, Molesworth-183, & Molesworth-447.

Thanks for the heads-up on the two wives of Henry Alexander Beale. ie. Alice Myrtle x 2.

Alice Myrtle was married again after Henry died. She married Jim Ross and it was a childless marriage. I really had no need to include it in the tree so I removed her as a wife. I hope that was OK. Cheers... Graeme

Hi Benjamin,

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,
