Hi! I’m very new to this so I may be totally wrong. My great grandfather’s obituary lists his parents as Lizare Croteau and Marie Gingras Croteau, and you’re managing a Marie that might match up date and country-wise. Any chance it’s the same Marie?

Hi Sarah, I haven't heard from you in a while. I hope you are doing okay. Send me a PM when you can. Emma
can we add a Cemetery Project to the US Black Heritage Project like the news about the Columbian Harmony Cemetery, Washington, District of Columbia. Thank you Carole (not a Member, just a concerned person)

This is a great idea Carole! I will pass it along!
Hello Sarah, hope all is well with you. I was updating my profile for Mary Mae Cupp, Cupp- 747, a 3rd cousin 2XR of mine. I also updated her husbands, Harley Jay Van Meter, Van_Meter-749, you are the profile manager for him. I added more Family Search source citations I found, and also wrote him an in-line biography. Thank-you

Hi, Sarah! Why was the US Black Heritage designation removed from Carter-33202? Thanks!

Hi K, the
US Black Heritage Project
Sarah (Murtaugh) Heiney is a part of Black history.
Join: US Black Heritage Project
Discuss: black_heritage
box is for profiles that are managed by the Project. (It actually adds a category to the profile that says the profile is Project-Managed.) If the Project is not the manager (in this case, the profile was orphaned) then it shouldn't have the box.
Please see - I'm a member of the US Black Heritage Project and these profiles should be project-managed. All are profiles of the 1936-1938 Federal Writers Project capturing the narratives of former slaves, and are just awaiting project members to take an interest and continue the work.

Hi Sarah,

I'm sorry for posting here, you can delete . I've been trying to get the US History Project Badge. I've posted where I was told to post. Everyone seems to send me somewhere else to post. James Paxton G2G6 send me the following message. I would appreciate any help you can give me.

Welcome Dan!

You might add "Maine" as one of your followed tags so you can be alerted about new posts about the state of Maine.

You might also want to contact either Sarah Heiney or Ellen Smith, Leaders of the U.S. History Project for a US History Project badge.(The Maine Project is part of the U.S. History Project).

(by the way, one of my distant cousins, Mary Todd (b. 1832) married Gilman Junkins of Kittery, Maine).

Hello, Sarah,

On behalf of the Military and War Project Leaders, we are doing a six-month check-in with members.

First, we want to thank you for your past participation in the project. We appreciate your desire to honor your ancestors for their service to their countries, or even for your service, wherever in the world. We hope that your membership has enhanced your WikiTree experience.

Please let me know, by commenting on my profile or sending a private message, if you are still active in the project, and if so, in a general sense how you may have contributed to the main project or any sub-projects within the last couple months.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
