Thank you LaMyra for participating in the US Civil War Challenge. You completed 307 profiles during the January Connect-a-Thon. There were 27 of us who signed up for the Challenge, completing 6,480 profiles.
The US Civil War February Challenge will be to create profiles for those soldiers who died during the Battle of Shiloh on the 7th and 8th of April 1862. If you're interested in joining another challenge, check out the US Civil War Challenge Page on February 1st.
Thank you again. Pam
Here's the link to the G2G question: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/1506578/us-civil-war-january-2023-challenge
I Hope you'll join the fun.
We had eight+ members who participated in connecting 45 Generals, only three of the Generals still show they didn't connect beyond the 1st level of family. Norman Jones won the first Project Challenge Badge, his choice for the October challenge is connecting more Generals. Thank you again LaMyra for joining the September Challenge, I hope to see you in the October Challenge. Pam Kreutzer, US Civil War Project Leader
Thanks for your help, regards, Margaret, Categorization project volunteer.

It is time for the semi-annual check in for June, 2022 with members of the US Southern Colonies Project. Have you been active during the last six months? Note that it is a requirement to respond to the US Southern Colonies Check-ins. Please respond to this message by clicking the reply button below this message, to post your answer. I look forward to hearing from you..
Mary~ Project Coordinator, Membership, US Southern Colonies
Since you asked what you could do for the project, I looked at your contributions. Profile such as this https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Morton-1188 need the Southern Colonies sticker on the biography. You post the sticker below the Biography header, then SAVE. Here is the page for stickers https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Template:US_Southern_Colonist_Sticker
You might also check the unsourced profiles for Southern Colonies, to research and add sources to any profile.
umm, silly question I'm not good yet at the profile numbers and don't even know mine. SAD, lol Could you tell me where i can print the numbers with the names to have for reference??? Thank you, Jackie Brumble Mills
It's not very printer-friendly, but the only way I can think of is to use Wikitree Plus to generate a report. Wikitree + is different from Wikitree and it is what people use for getting reports for Data-doctoring, error suggestions and the marathon events. But you can use it for personal reports too.
So, try this: https://wikitree.sdms.si/default.htm?report=srch2&WikiTreeID=Brumble-81&Generations=8&OnlyBlood=1
Then you can edit the parameters on the left to change the starting person, the # of generations you are looking at or limit it to just direct ancestors. You are Brumble-81. There's not a lot of Brumbles.
This is the semi-annual polling for the US Southern Colonies Project. This check-in with members is to see if you have been active in the last six months in this project and want to remain a member of US SC?
Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the US Southern Colonies Project that you respond to these check-ins.
I look forward to hearing from you.. Many thanks,
Mary, Project Coordinator, - Membership US Southern Colonies Project

Yes, I'm still here and still active.
Thanks for taking responsibility for Orphaned Profiles. It looks like you are already doing the things recommended by the After Adopting Orphans FAQ. We really appreciate you becoming the caretaker of profiles!
Since Eowyn provided the major links in her email, I'm dropping by with the other main one you'll need. This will take you to the state links for the suggestions that need to be fixed. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:DBE_Errors_By#East_North_Central Click on the state you want to work on and it will bring up a huge chart of suggestions. If you have any question about how things work or if there's any issues, drop a note in the Team chat or PM me. And the most important thing is...have fun!
Go Team MO!!

Prudence Parker was born in 1606 in Plymouth, England. <ref>This year of birth is just a guess to assist in differentiating him from others of different eras. The place is a guess as well based on the fact that William was in Plymouth for his adulthood.</ref>
Was there a source you were going to add to confirm the 1606 year and location? If not it should say "about" as it did.

My name is Sarah and I’m the new Project Leader for The Native Americans Project. This is your project check-in letter. I would love to hear back from you about your current Native American research interests and project related activity.
Sarah Mason, NA Project Leader
I currently am adding profiles for the passed signers of the Cherokee Speakers Roll and other notable Cherokees as I see them announced and do try to trace them back as far as I can, but I do hope that other descendants, relatives or project members will recognize where they belong and help. I also add other NAs I find interesting when their death makes the news. I have worked on Brian Moss, killed in 9/11 and Agnes Pilgrim, co-founder of the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. There was a gg-grandaunt that married a Wyandotte, so I've done a fair amount of work on them too.
A while back, I started going through the Principle Chief free space page with the goal of making sure they all had linked profiles. I left a few of the oldest ones undone as I thought they may already have profiles under some strange version of their name that I couldn't recognize, so Kathie may want to review that page. I think there are still two or three that need profiles or linked. The page itself could stand a review, I think. I'm not sure that everyone there belongs there. There may need to be some other pages created for deputy chiefs, old settler chiefs, military 'chiefs', etc. Wikitree gets a bit too unwieldy for me with all its categories, projects, pages, and stickers. Anyway, as a result of this, Chief Thompson has become a pet interest.
Thank you for your participation in October’s 2020 Source-a-thon. Your contributions helped us to clear over 57,000 profiles that needed sourcing. This makes our Shared Tree all that much better.
Keep up the great work!

I see that you have a number of Blythe profiles with the Trail of Tears category connected. There has been a recent update to that category making it a "High Level" category and creating a Cherokee Trail of Tears subcategory. Please consider updating these profiles by replacing Category:Trail_of_Tears with Category:Cherokee_Trail_of_Tears.
There are lots of Meltons and Arnolds in the SW AR in Columbia and Lafayette Cos.
