I do speak and read French, though it has been some time. That said, if someone needs help with French, I'm more than willing to try. I'm getting better at reading Elizabethan English, I'm quite good with Middle English, I know no Latin... I'm quite good at reading different forms/styles of Cursive writing (well penmanship styles do change from one era to the next!).

At present, I'm trying to do wikitree community work while also putting up new profiles of all of my ancestors, and I'm doing this profile by profile rather than uploading some file, for I wish to review all of the information so I'm less likely to replicate mistakes I may have made months ago. I understand a great deal more about the research process now than I first did, particularly when you have little to go on, which with certain ancestors is--alas--very much true.

I've lived in various parts of the US, in England, France, and in North Africa, West Africa, and the Middle East. I've travelled in Canada, Belgium, Italy, etc.

I have never been to Scotland, and I would love to go there, for I'm part Scottish!

I speak no German, but I have German ancestry, and this is proving to be a challenge, though I just joined the German group, and on the 5th of Feb. of 2020, I discovered that a profile that needed some sourcing actually is the profile of my third great-uncle! It was only when I looked through the notes I've taken that I realized the connection. It's amazing how all of this works.

I live in DC. I love Paris.

Cheers and all that!

Hi again

Would you consider adding our template to your biography? The link will explain how to determine which codes to use. It really helps to know the languages of WikiTree members.

Once you have the codes for the languages you speak / read, copy the code, then edit your own profile. Scroll down until you get to your biography section and post the template under the Biography heading.  Add your language codes where the question marks are in the template and then save. This will place a box on your profile, which lets others know which languages you are comfortable with and what level of proficiency you have. Occasionally assistance is needed to help others who need help with translating pages or documents. This page may also be of interest Resources   Janet~Wikitree Messenger

I would most certainly add the language templates to my bio, though really my best language apart from English (and Elizabethan English) is French. I do speak Arabic, but I do not read it. But to return to the templates: I attempted to utilize the links on this site, and via the email that was sent to me, and each time was sent to a page and told the links were broken. I went to the indexed help pages to try to find them there, but could not find anything. That said, I'm new to this site, and am still familiarizing myself with the many tools, and relearning some basic html, so I may have missed something. Is there a specific G2 thread that addresses the issue?

Thank you! It's going to take me a while to figure out how to do this because I am very much of the computer illiterati (there's a Scottish poem I like that uses a similar term: "po-faced literati..." (pock-faced literary fellows--poor translation on my part), but a gem of a poem. The entire poem deals with the issue of language/dialect (but this site is not devoted to literature, so shall stop--> to my point), and html is one (language), and I do not understand this language.

So the plan: I shall go to the help forums and see if someone is having the same problem, and if someone knows how to talk to or lead those of us who are computer illiterate to sites that enable one to understand how to implant that badge on one's site as well as how to integrate the language variables, I'll get it done sooner rather than later. That said, I think it's important for me to learn how to do this and other html things one should know if one wishes to give her best to the overall success of this magnificent project!
