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,

Hi Benjamin, I've just made some changes to Affleck-248 (Harriet Affleck/Bridges/Molesworth). The records I've found say her first marriage was to John Thomas Bridges instead of ST Bridges as it currently stands (eg, Is ST Bridges a different person or should it be changed to John Thomas?

FYI, concerning the Iwardby question, these days Wikitree automatically places links to any G2G discussions about a profile, in the top right corner so we don't need to post a separate message about it on the profile any more.

Thank you for the merge suggestion. I've initiated it, as it does appear that we each have part of the history, and it is therefore a duplicate.
