Debi Matlack is a rare creature, a native-born Floridian. This means that the concept of snow and ice and mountains sounds good on paper, but is best experienced vicariously, through print and visual media rather than personal experience.

She lives in Florida with her parents and husband and cats. Her main ambition is to be successful as a writer. Proceeds will be used to support her and her family in a manner to which they would like to become accustomed. Achieving this goal is highly unlikely.

I am checking in on behalf of the 1776 Project to announce the new project membership requirements and to verify that you are still interested in being a member of the project. All project members are being asked to join one of the project teams and also to make at least one project contribution every 6 months. We are also asking all project members to join the project's Google Group for project communications.

If you are interested in remaining with the Project, please reply to this comment or send me a message, request to join the Google Group, and let us know what team you would like to participate on.

We really appreciate your contributions on WikiTree, and thank you for all your hard work. If you have any questions, please ask. We would also love to hear any feedback you may have for the project.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Thank you for entering William Attriss Nail, he is my great grandfather. There is a bridge named after him near Reidsville, GA. He owned property there and he gave the state some land to build the bridge over the Ohoopee River. I have the pdf document from the Georgia Department of Transportation from 1973 (can be found online as well) which provides some detail about his life and the bridge. Is it possible to upload this document on his profile?

Kind regards, Wes Nail

Nice to 'meet' you! I think .pdf documents can be uploaded under the 'Images' tool on the profile. I orphaned the profile since he isn't a blood relative (he was brother-in-law to a first cousin twice removed) so you could adopt it and make yourself profile manager if you like. You could also use a snipping tool or convert the pdf to an image, since .pdf files on WikiTree have to be opened to be viewed. If you want, you could email it to me and I could upload it, I add images all the time to my profiles. I'd be happy to do it and flesh out his biography with the details from the document. I'm a writer by inclination, if not traded, and it's good for me to practice once in a while.

Hi Debi,

Thanks for reaching out. I uploaded a snipped image of the bridge designation. I would like to adopt it and become the profile manager. How does that work?

Kind regards, Wes

posted by W Nail
I just checked and you already are the profile manager. If you have any further questions or need any help, feel free to ask me. If I don't know how to do something, I'm sure we can find someone who does.

Debi ~ This is why I had not yet approved the merge of my Daniel Shepherd [Shepherd-4374] with Daniel Shepard [Shepherd-1640]. I wrote an extended comment giving my reasons for this which you may have not noticed.

I have been waiting for the removal of Daniel Shepard as a child of Ralph Shepard and Thankslord Perkins ("Profiles Protected") because there is no credible proof of this relationship. These parents are also attached to three other children for which there is NO evidence: John, Walter and Mary. Some of the sources attached to the Ralph and Thankslord Shepard family do not even specify to which life event they apply. A conscientious researcher might expect that "Protected Profiles" would contain the best proofs of scholarship and warn against such unwarranted conflations.

I'm not sure why my comments continue to be ignored because to my knowledge no one has yet provided credible documentation or compelling circumstantial evidence for attaching children named Daniel, John, Walter and Mary to Ralph and Thankslord (Perkins) Shepherd.

My apologies for merging these profiles. I compared, saw matching details and went from there.

Hi, Debi

This is to check in with you about the Ambassadors Project. There has been some revamping and reorganizing done. You have the badge, but I don’t show you as having access to the project google group.

Please send me a private message with what teams you would like to be on, as well as the email you want to use for the google group. If you use a different email address for trusted list access on WikiTree, please note that as well.

Please review the project page to learn more about the different teams:

I look forward to hearing back from you!

Hi Debi,

I sent you a message a week ago to let you know about the exciting changes in the US Southern Colonies Project to ask you about your continued involvement but have no yet heard back from you. Do you still want to be in the project? If so, which team(s) would you like to be on and please can you private message me with your e-mail address so I can get you added to the project’s Google Group?

If I don’t hear from you by the same time next week I’ll assume that you’ve moved on to other things but you’d be most welcome to re-join the project at any time.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Best wishes,

Susie - US Southern Colonies Co-Leader

Hi Debi,

As you may have seen, we have been doing some restructuring in the US Southern Colonies Project and are now organising ourselves into different teams. We have also changed the criteria for membership. Please have a look at the new project pages, and let me know whether you would like to remain in the project and, if so, 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 and are in the Google Group.

Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the US Southern Colonies Project that you respond to these check-ins. We’re really excited for the future of the project and hope that you decide to be a part of it with us moving forwards.

Many thanks,

Susie, US Southern Colonies Project Co-Leader

Hello - James is my 6th GGF so I will do some more deep diving on him and see what else I can find.. I do know he had the two wives. I have marriage records for them. So do I just hold off on completing the merge until we get more answers? Linda
