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

I don't recall pasting any badges in the past six months so I guess not. Work full time and can't do this every day.

Thanks, and we do appreciate your contributions to 1776 Project, whenever you have the time.

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.

Hi Raymond, It looks like you may have some outstanding merges that need attention. You can find them by following the link at the top of this page under >My Wikitree>Watchlist, then hit the button that says Pending Merges. If you need help, just ask.

Thanks for helping with Wikitree

Hi! Your comments on Gateway Ancestors (to Surety Barons) managed by the Magna Carta Project were archived. While it's likely that they are Gateways to Charlemagne, the project does not generally post connections on its managed profiles that the project has not reviewed and verified in WikiTree.

The Special:Relationship trail returned in WikiTree may not be the same as that recorded by the Charlemagne organization (the cited https://www.charlemagne.org/Gateway.html) and even then, lineage societies are considered great for leads but not considered a reliable source, as noted on the Pre-1700 Resource Page: "As with any source independent validation is recommended."

Cheers, Liz

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!

Descendant of Roger Mortimer. 26th gg. who was the ancestor of Maude Mortimer Malet, my 28th gg through my Richards line. which makes Roger my 31st through her. But he is my 26th gg through my Bartlett line. Had to use the connection finder to get that as the relationship finder can find nothing. 30 generations is too small. we need a 50 generation path finder.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Hi Raymond, Concerning the Father of Benjamin Nichols, the name is unknown. It is not Johannes (John) Nicol who settled in PA though. This much we know for sure.
again R-CTS1751 is my y-dna but of course you may have googled it by now.

Hello Raymond

Noticed your post, "comment from Raymond Nichols was posted on the WikiTree profile of Elizabeth Brent".

Glad to have you as a Magna Carta member and I see that you are the Gateway Guardian of Col John Washington. I want to find out how you are enjoying membership in the Magna Carta Project and if you have any suggestions for how we can make the project even better. Let me hear from you when you have time.

By the way looks like we may be cousins through William Aldridge. I just ran our ID's through relationship finder to see what would pop up.

Best regards, David Douglas, Co-Leader Magna Carta Project

Hi Ray,

Please be careful when suggesting sources just because the name is the same. For example, there are 5 Drucilla Griffin profiles, and they are 5 completely different women.

I plan to upgrade during their fall sale. At least one of the William b.1580 trees in group 1 seems valid so the project leader considers this to be the group for william's line.

Not sure about the privacy tab thing so please add to trusted list of Samuel Farnsworth-354/

Clicked on the privacy tab on the profile but just explained it. Little confused, Sharon

posted by Sharon (Hardman) West
Groups 1 and 3 differ by 4 STR markers in just the Y-12 set alone (DYS390, DYS392, DYS458, DYS449). There are useful charts to help interpret this, such as the one below:


According to this one, three differences mean that individuals in those groups are probably not related in “recent or distant genealogical times”. These are probabilistic results, and additional testing is always encouraged, but in this case I doubt that it would change the basic conclusion that individuals in these two groups are “genetically distant”.

Here is the link to the Hancock surname project at FtDNA:


I'm not sure, but I think recent privacy changes make some of the lines may only appear if you are a member of FtDNA.

Good morning! Thank you for your comment: "well my Morgan cousin, despite all the green, gedmatch said we have no dna matches, but the tree disagrees. happy hunting." This relative occured before 1700 which makes a dilute gedmatch. Try setting cm size sensitivity to 4 and you will spot a nearly 5cm match. This makes sense for a distant relative so far away.  :) Blessings!! Cindy
