Corinne's current to-do list
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.
Thank you for joining the Mighty Oaks for the Clean-A-Thon and congratulations on your work during the CAT what an amazing result for the Mighty Oaks we added 32,841 . Altogether the teams fixed a grand total of 233,558 profiles suggestions. We hope you had fun while cleaning the tree.
See you later in the year for the Connect-A-Thon
Janet & Joan
Co-Leaders for the Mighty Oaks
Just a note to say thank you for the all the sources you have added to my wife's profiles this morning. I have only just finished transferring it from Ancestry and there is a lot of work to do in checking and filling out the profiles, so this has lessened my task quite a bit. I'd give you another badge if you didn't have them all already.
Thank you so much for all your contributions to WikiTree in the last six months, and especially to the Wales Project. It’s been wonderful to have you as part of the team as we work together to increase the quality and quantity of Welsh Profiles.
I have you down as being on the Bio Builders. Is this right? How are things going? Do you have any questions? What can we do to support you? Would you like to change any of your teams? Do you want to continue in the Wales Project moving forwards?
I look forward to hearing back from you with all the above and hope to see you on Discord soon.
Thanks once again,
Olivia, Project Coordinator for Wales :-)
Re your recent edit and lack of records:
John Mallett was a soldier and posted overseas in 1854. James may well have been born overseas. Possibly married in Canada where his Regiment was posted until 1847, daughter born in 1848, Preston.
I've attached the following note to James profile
NOTE 2, ADDED BY Burgess-6632 14 Feb 2021.
John Mallett was a private in the 89th Regiment, and residing at Barracks Fulwood at the time of the christening of his daughter Charlotte on 18 June 1848.<ref>OPC Lancashire, baptism record of Charlotte Mallett</ref>
This may explain the lack of source records, including census records.
In 1854 the Regiment sailed for Gibralter, then the Crimea, 1855 save a move to South Africa, 1857 to India, returned to England in 1865.
Charlotte married James McDonald in Everton, Lancashire in 1869, <ref>Marraige record, record search on MyHeritage </ref>no records for her as Charlotte McDonald, [searches on FamilySearch, MyHeritage, assumption she married a soldier who was posted overseas. The Regiment was in India in 1870, then Burma, returning to India in 1880.<ref>Wikipedia</ref>
It's that time of the year again: check-in time! As England Project Leaders, we like to check in with you every six months or so to see how things are progressing. Back in May, we didn't ask for a response due to the rapid emergence of Covid-19 because we understood that people's lives were changing rapidly. While we are still living in a Covid world, we do need to hear back from you this time around.
First of all, how are you doing? What are you currently working on? Are you happy with the team(s) you're in, or would you like to change things up?
Secondly, we're looking for some feedback on the Google Group and our Discord server. Do you use either or both of these? If you don't use either, why not? Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve participation and collaboration, either generally or for you personally?
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Amy, Joan & Lizzie.

Congrats on the Super Star Badge!
Your England Leaders are completing the six monthly check in with all team members. Thank you for all your work on English Profiles and in particular your work in Lancashire Team.
These are unprecedented and difficult times, and we understand as Project Leaders that your situation may have changed somewhat in the last few months. What we are all able to/ wish to contribute on Wikitree has changed. Please let me know if you are happy with your current role and team choice, or if you wish to do something additional or different. Thank you again on behalf of all the Project Leaders for everything you do.
As you will have seen, we have been doing some restructuring in the Wales Project and are now organising ourselves into different teams. Please have a look at the new project pages, and let me know which team(s) you would like to be in.
Please can you also send me your e-mail address? I can then make sure you are introduced to your Team Leaders, are in the Google Group, and receive an invitation to join our Discord server.
Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the Wales Project that you respond to these check-ins.
Susie, Wales Project Co-Leader
The Global Cemeteries Project is currently undergoing our member check-in and wanted to verify that you are still active and interested in being a member of the project. Are you currently assigned to or working with one of our Cemetery Teams? If not, is there a particular Team or area you are interested in participating with? I would be delighted to help you get setup in one or more of our collaborative teams!
We use Google Groups for internal project collaboration, so if you are not yet setup for access feel free to submit a join request and we will get that approved as quick as possible. We also ask that members check their follwed tags to make sure you are following the correct project tag (CEMETERIES) so you don't miss any disucssions in G2G.
Last, but not least, we would like to thank you for all of your contributions to WikiTree and let you konw that any ideas or suggestions for improvement you may have for the Global Cemeteries Project would greatly appreciated!
I look forward to hearing form you soon!

I am just checking in with you as a member of the Lancashire Team. We are entering the last 8 days of the England regional go Green Challenge reducing the suggestions, unsourced and unconnected numbers. On the 13th the Northern Region were in the lead for the challenge with drop of 16,728!
As your regional cheer leader - I am encouraging everyone to go go go
Good luck Janet :)
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 Leader for Lancashire. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.
Are you happy to stay in your current team and the project as a whole? Are there any other teams you'd like to join? What are we doing well, and what would you like to see us doing differently moving forwards?
Please respond to this message via e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.
Susie, England Project Leader :-)
I have merged them. Do you have copy of the burial documents at all? If so I would love to have them. I am not surprised that she ended up in an asylum, Obed Farr (GG grandfather) was a musician who seems to have traveled the country.

Kind regards, Carole
Thank you for your time and energy in creating over 1000 (actually, over 1800!) contributions to WikiTree for the month of July 2019. Your efforts are appreciated!

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 dont 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.
Very well done on your making 1,000 or more contributions to WikiTree in June 2019! We commend and appreciate all of your time and effort in helping to grow and perfect our Shared Tree. Keep up the great work!
Pip Sheppard ~ WikiTree Appreciation Team

On behalf of the England Project Leaders we're carrying out a check-in to see how all the members are doing and taking the opportunity to thank you for all your hard work over the past six months. We have been so impressed with the way everyone has rallied together and gone the extra mile to make this one of the most dedicated, productive and friendly communities on WikiTree. What are you enjoying most about being in the project? What would you like to see improved or changed? Would you like to continue in the project moving forwards?
We're looking forward to hearing back from you,
Susie, Gillian, Wendy and Amy
