Poem by David Draper
Melissa Jamison, a wikitreer so fine

Her passion for genealogy simply shines

With every edit, she adds to our history

A special treasure, a true legacy

Her research skills are truly top-notch

A detective of sorts, she never botches

Her dedication to accuracy is clear

In her hands, our family trees steer

Melissa, a Wonderful Wikitreer indeed

Her contributions to the community we need

A gem among gems, a rare find

In the world of genealogy, she truly shines.

Surnames
  • Most of my research has been in the southern states, mostly in Georgia and South Carolina. Some of my earlier ancestors came from Pennsylvania and Kansas in the United States. Over seas, I find them in England, and Scotland

Melissa--check Shellie Shuman age at death--age you have does not match with DOB and year of death.

Thanks, Dr Nicky Shuman

The dates added to the date fields seem to be correct. I changed the dates in the biography, they seemed to be a little off, but should be correct now. Born in 1894, died in 1980. 85 yrs old at death. Seem correct to you?

We've put together a survey for you to fill out to check in with you, it will only take a moment as there are only a few questions. Filling out the survey lets us know you are still interested in coordinating your study and provides an opportunity for you to share any suggestions you may have for the project.

If you have decided to step away from your study, please reply to this comment to that effect.

Make profiles beautiful! We clean up messy biography sections and sources, and try to set standards for attractive, useful, and well-written biographies, starting with those we manage.

We know you’re working on profiles *smile* We would like to hear about successes you’ve had toward the Project’s goals. We would also appreciate any feedback you might have to help us improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or privately via private message to either of us.

Hi Melissa,

I wrote to you recently as part of the England Project's six-monthly check-in with our project members. I have not heard back from you. I hope you are well.

If you could please drop me a quick note to confirm whether you are still interested in the project and wish to remain an active member, that would be very helpful.

If we do not hear from you within the next 2 weeks, we will assume you are no longer active in the England Project and remove you from our list of project members. You would be most welcome to re-apply to join the project at a later time by signing-up on the project’s G2G welcome post.

Many thanks!

Hi Melissa,

We're sad to inform you that the Black Sheep Project is being dissolved. All BSP's subprojects will be moved in pieces under the Notables Project as categories and perhaps as Teams, depending on interest. Witch Trials will become a subproject of Notables.

Your BSP project member badge will soon be removed. If you'd like to join the Notables project, please let one of us know and we'll get you a Notables badge.

Please email either of us if you have any questions and if you'd like to join the Notables project.

Thanks, Susan McNamee & Traci Thiessen ~co-leaders, Black Sheep Project

Hello Melissa, I saw your post on the Cook Name Study page. The project is inactive at the moment and needs a new leader. Would you be interested in leading it? Let me know and I'd be happy to add you as manager for the page.
Hi Sarah, I just started a name study for my maiden name about 2 weeks ago. I'm still learning, but I guess I can try the Cook Project. It's a larger name than my "Mutimer." I hate for it to be inactive, so I would be happy to try and keep it up to date.
Thanks for helping me im starting to correctly source so they get off my back. Thx again 1 love

Not sure I want a con artist relative!! lol Anyway, just a heads up, EditBot came in the next day and changed 'Black Sheep|Con Artist' to the plural 'Black Sheep|Con Artists' ... oooh, and after saving this with the opening and closing {}'s, it looks like both work???

And, extra special thanks to all the research work you did!

Hello, Melissa,

It has been a couple of weeks since we contacted you about your participation in the Military and War Project and we are following up to make sure you wish to remain a member.

We understand that interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to the branches they are currently building. If this is the case for you, please let us know.

If we do not hear back from you within the week, we will assume you have moved on to other things for the moment and remove you from the project. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.
