Biography of Carolyn Murray

Carolyn Murray is a Project Member of the Southern Pioneers Project.

I am the daughter of James Arlander Murray and Slena Mae Peebles. My family lines include: Murray, Vandiver, Isbell, Birdwell, Lucas, Looney, Boone, Allen, Yocum, Peebles, Casey, Duckett, Lucas, Linam, Tolbert, Terry, Menefee and all their collateral lines.

I have been a family historian since childhood. Genealogy is my way of preserving the family history and passing those memories down for future generations. My family is so small now, that I can only hope that one or two others might take up the pursuit of primary sources of our family for the future.

I have had a blog referencing my hometown and its treasured past for a long time now; been a contributor to Find-A-Grave for over eight years at present; and have done innumerable family trees for those on a gratis basis. And now, joining the WikiTree group my quest for accurate data from primary sources to enhance my family lines.

I have honed my research skills and have been working at a seasoned professional level for many years now. My goal is to continue to work on all my branches discovering new finds, and correcting errors in fact whenever I locate them. Primary sources are the gold standard for work in genealogy. May we all soldier on. Sourcing is often blocked by loss of primary records at courthouses that were burned during the Civil War, loss of family bible records, etc. DNA has been a big boost to family historians now for a few years.

Please note:

If I should be unable to contribute to my family history at any point, due to death or disability, then I designate either of my two children, my grandchild, or any other near relative, should my closest relatives not be able or choose not to take over my profiles. and continue the research forward on WikiTree. 30 Dec 2017

I’ve not heard back from you regarding the 1776 Project check-in so have gone ahead and removed you from the project for now.

If you’d like to rejoin at any stage you would be most welcome to do so by answering the G2G sign-up post here

Many thanks,

Betty -- 1776 Project Leader

Hi,

I sent you a check-in message several days ago about the 1776 Project to ask you about your past and continued involvement but have not yet heard back from you. Do you still want to be in the project?

If I don’t hear from you in a week or so, I’ll assume that you’ve moved on to other things, but you’re most welcome to re-join the project at any time.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Best wishes,

Betty -- 1776 Project Leader

Greetings from the 1776 Project . . .

We're doing our semi-annual check-in to ask whether you have made contributions to the project in the last six months?

Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the 1776 Project that you respond to this check-in. Please post your response as a reply to this message on your page, for convenience of record keeping.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Hello,

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.

If we don't hear back from you we will assume that you no longer wish to participate in the project and if so, you could rejoin at any time as is convenient for you.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!

I sent you a check-in message a week ago about 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 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’re most welcome to re-join the project at any time.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Best wishes,

Hi Carolyn! You missed the check-in notice, since you're not a member of the Project's Discussion Group ... not sure why you're not, since one of the requirements of the project when it was re-launched in May 2020 was that all members join that Google Group.

Anyway, you're listed as a member of the project's Bio Builders Team, so all you need do to stay a project member is reply to this post that you're still interested. I'd like to ask that you also send me a private message so that I can add you to the Discussion Group.

Thanks!

I would like to continue with this group. There have been so much and many challenges since my husband's death, just now getting somewhat back to my new normal. Thank you.

Hi Carolyn,

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,

Hi Carolyn,

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

UNAVOIDABLE TEMPORARY ABSENCE!!

Unfortunately, my husband and I are in the hospital and rehab. Hopefully I will be able to respond in WikiTree again when we are released to go back home.

Hi Carolyn, I just wanted to say "Congratulations" on becoming one of the newest Red Badged "Generous Genealogist". Your dedication to Wikitree has been an asset and great help to us.

Hi Carolyn,

Notables are not automatically PPP Project Protected - someone has to select that for them on an individual basis. - As far as General Casey goes, he does qualify as a Notable and if you like, I will PPP the profile. - Thanks.
