Yes, We've Got Stickers!

Welsh flag
Liz (Noland) Shifflett has Welsh ancestors.
I LOVE the stickers (seriously - don't believe me? click here). Here's one. And I have a couple from the Magna Carta Project (see below, following the test stickers). And a selection of Member stickers. And stickers from Project Challenges. And even more stickers!

Project Logo
Liz was a valued member of the Greeters Project who has moved to Emeritus status.
I posted this sticker with a bit of sadness. I'd joined the Greeters Project on 8 January 2013. But things change & now I'm a Greeter Emeritus. They are the Greatest Group!
Descendant of King Stephen also (24x-gr-grand).
Descendant of Mary Tanner, my 9x gr-grand and the 8th great-grand of Elvis Presley (my 9th cousin, once removed).
Descendant of Richard de Clare, Surety Baron. Here is the trail.
Charlemagne, King of the Franks
Descendant of Charlemagne (per WikITree; see below for more ancestors).
And some test stickers (the first three are the Relationship Sticker, then five using the Connection Sticker; the others are based on the Descendant sticker). They were tests for the new (July 2021) Relationship Sticker and Connection Sticker.

For more Heritage stickers, see this page. It covers the new stickers and many more.

Daughters of the American Revolution
Liz (Noland) Shifflett is a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
... One of the stickers covered by the page just mentioned is the Society Member sticker, used here to display my membership in the DAR. For the version that goes on the Patriot Ancestor's profile, see this template page. See this G2G post for more information.

Project Member

In addition to tending your own branches of the WikiTree, you can contribute through various projects, such as the Project Member badge I have for the Magna Carta Project. (As of 1 June 2020, my badges are no longer displayed here, so I removed most of the "About the Badges" section, leaving only the Project Member section, which included ... wait for it ... More Stickers! To see my badges, [click here].)
Magna Carta project logo
Liz is Team Leader of the Project's AM Team (Admin-Maintenance).
Magna Carta project logo
Liz is on the Magna Carta Project leadership team.

AND... some projects have both project badge and a members sticker, based on the new[ish] {{Member}} sticker - like US Southern Colonies Project does. (It also has Team Stickers, based on the {{Recognition Sticker}}.)
Liz (Noland) Shifflett is a member of the US Southern Colonies Project.

Liz is a member of the Colony of Virginia Team.
Liz (Noland) Shifflett is a member of the Peyton Name Study Project.
Liz (Noland) Shifflett is a member of the Noland Name Study Project.

Projects also have Member stickers for subprojects, which do not have their own project badge for members to display. For example, the One Name Studies has a project badge, but the individual names studied do not, but now they can have a sticker!

Cousin Connections

As my line ends with me, I'm pleased to provide what I know for my cousins (however distant :) and their descendants. In addition to profiles of our ancestors, I've added some pages with additional information:


Liz Shifflett,[1][2] daughter of Henry Peyton Noland[3] and his wife Sarah Elizabeth Brien, is working on tracing (rather, proving) her lineage beyond Edward Spencer Martin and to Pearce Noland ("the immigrant"), as well as her Neal and Bell ancestors (of Tennessee) and the Watkins and Briens who settled in Mississippi in the 1800s.

Raised in Alexandria, Virginia, Liz moved south (a bit) and lives in Woodbridge, Virginia. She's a graduate of T.C. Williams high school (Alexandria) and began her career with the Federal Government while a senior there. She's now retired from her last Federal position: an editor for the NASA Office of Inspector General in Washington, D.C.[4]

Thoughts from Liz

I think about the lifetime of my Grandmother Elizabeth sometimes, being born in 1896 with horse and buggy the common conveyance and growing to drive her own car and fly to Israel and elsewhere. Before she died in 1989, man had walked on the moon and Space Shuttles were traveling to low Earth orbit and back.

Then today, as I finished watching the transit of Venus thanks to the Internet (not to mention the Solar Dynamics Observatory and NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center), I recalled the early days of the Internet, when I watched a grand slam by the Orioles - depicted by little animated stick figures moving around a diamond on a green screen.

Grandmother not only was born to horses and lived to see spaceflight, she was born to books and saw the advent of radio and television. I used to think, "What wonders will I see before I die?" And then I realized: I just watched the transit of Venus over a computer in my own home. I receive e-mails with images of the Earth from space, distant planets, the Milky Way, and more from the ISS, Hubble, Cassini, and other spacecraft. I think I'm seeing them![5]

August 2013 Notice about E-mails

Something wasn't working right with e-mails to me through WikiTree from July 29 or 30 through August 3. If you sent me a private message and I didn't respond, it's because I didn't receive it. Sorry! Please re-send, as I think I've fixed the problem. You can also contact me by using the public bulletin board posting feature at right (or, if you're not a WikiTree member, post a comment or answer to my G2G post about this). Thanks!

April 2014 Notice about E-mails

The same problem that I encountered last August arose again (although I caught it faster this time). I think the problem started sometime late Saturday, April 26 (after ET 10:30 pm), and I fixed it Monday the 28th about 11 am. If you sent me a private message, trusted list request, or merge proposal and I didn't reply or take action, please re-send! Thanks! Note to WikiTree:

Digital Afterlife: In the event of my death, I would like all of the profiles for people not living that I manage alone to be changed to Open. Also, if any project pages are still just in my name, they need to be turned over to the appropriate project. Space pages that I have created can all be changed to Open. If I missed anything (and for the Red/still living profiles on my Watchlist), I ask that they be managed by Team Wiki or a WikiTree Leader at the discretion of WikiTree. Thanks! Elizabeth L.N.

  10. gr-gr-gr-granddaughter of Elisha Brien, born in Virginia, married (2) in Tennessee in 1818; Elisha's father John changed his name from Bryan to Brien (his father was William Bryan, my 5x-gr-grand)

  13. The mother of Fannie Dixon (my 3x-gr-grand) was for sure a Harrington (Harrington-1539), and I'm fairly confident of the Harrington line for a few more generations. But it gets a bit squirrely around Thomas Sr (Harrington-428), my 7x-gr-grand.
  14. Sarah (Hollingsworth-1343) may be the answer to family rumor of a Dixon-Hollingsworth connection (to Dixon-1980).

  18. John Henry Neal, born 1812 in Virginia, is my 3x-gr-grandfather on mom's side, and a brick wall
  19. pretty solid, albeit circumstantial, back to Philip Noland and his wife, and his dad/granddad (but not at all their added wives/ancestors)

Hi Liz!

Thank you for your participation on Team Virginia in the April 2022 Connect-A-Thon. You helped bring Team Virginia to an amazing 1st place finish. We could not have done it without you! This year's Thon members added over 84,000k new Profiles to the Global Shared Tree!! You did it! You made your goal! (no pressure, of course)

Liz (Noland) Shifflett participated with The Virginia Connectors during the 2022 Connect-a-Thon, and has added 50 connections.

Hi, Liz! I don't know if I ever mentioned this (or if you discovered it on your own) but we are 11th cousins! We are both related to Elizabeth (Soane) Duke

Dolly Parton is also a descendant of the same person, so that must make her your cousin, too! Not only that, but you and I supposedly share 54 ancestors!

posted by Mary Leachman
Too cool! Thanks for sharing! (Especially about Dolly Parton - one of my favorite singers... and person!)

Off to go explore the 54 shared ancestors (my connection to Soane-27 hits a questionable patch, in my opinion, at the Petersons).

Cheers cousin!

This is your check in message, altho I have already marked you active..

This is the semi-annual polling for the US Southern Colonies Project. This check-in with members is to see if you have been active in the last six months in this project and do you want to remain a member of Southern Colonies.?

Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the US Southern Colonies Project that you respond to these check-ins.

I look forward to hearing from you.. Many thanks,

Hi Liz you have so many stickers it's amazing! How do you do it? I was wondering how you add descendant stickers eg. European Royals

Best, David

posted by David Mortimer
Thanks! I'm addicted :D

Most of them are based on the Descendant sticker - see Template:Descendant - but the "test" ones are based on the new Template: Relationship Sticker and Template: Connection Sticker.

For more, see Space: Relationship Stickers.

I'm confuzzled. You're telling me that I have too many stickers?
posted by Mary Leachman
on your ancestors' profiles, yes. From Help: Stickers - specifically Maximum number per profile:

There should be no more than five Profile Stickers on one profile. Three is better.

If more than five Profile Stickers are applicable, contributors to the profile need to decide which five represent the most important things to highlight about the person's life.

This limit does not apply to members' own account profiles. The number of Stickers a member can use on their own profile is entirely up to the member.

Thanks Liz, but I don't need to be added to those profiles. I was just ruling out any connections to my own Sannicandro branches and the birth place for Michele was ambiguous. I'm certain now that there are no connections. Nick

I've had a closer look and think we should have a category for it though I'm not sure what. Clearly it was not a company in the usual sense but a missionary society. It had a lot of interesting people part of it. Can I leave it to you? I'm still somewhat baffled by the inner workings of the categorization project.

Hi, Liz. Regarding Robert Clayton and his New England Company, it is listed on his HOP article. It wasn't quite an ordinary company so far as I could tell but was set up with the purpose of converting the heathen in New England and might or might not still exist today. Didn't find out exactly yesterday. If we don't want to explore it, I'm happy enough to see it gone. C
posted by C. Mackinnon
Thanks! I missed it in his HOP bio (I searched for "Company" not "Co"). I had deleted it because the category didn't exist (Category: New England Company turned up as a "wanted cat"... should the category be created instead?).

Could Anne "Elizabeth" Bolling and Elizabeth Anne Bolling be the same person?
posted by Craig Fortune
not sure, but I think that if there are two Elizabeth Munfords (one widow Munford, one maiden name), that would explain why the family is in a bit of disarray here in WikiTree. A few years ago, I did a ton of work to sort out the multi-generational John Banister profiles here, but they're not as I recall having left them (and here I thought that I'd left enough sourced text that they'd be ok).

Anyway, I think maybe we also had a bad merge of a couple generations of John Banisters, which would explain why there were several suggestions in the family profiles related to mother/child date warnings when I checked suggestions for of Munford-60.

Lots more research needed to sort these out. I'll pick these up again on the weekend or next week - after taxes are done!

Cheers, Liz

Hi Liz,

Instead of removing 1776, could you please change it up a sticker? I see there are already 2 stickers. I think Notables could be changed to a category since the other sticker indicates he is notable in his historical importance. If you don’t agree, then leave it as it is.

and you can have up to 5 stickers, although WikiTree guidelines says 3 is better.

Following the information I posted regarding the daughter of Peter Erondell, I thought I should check the registers just incase there was a death for her and in so doing, I found the following information regarding the family of Peter Erondell which may be useful to you. All St Mildred Poultry (taken from original parish register) baptism 1600 Dec 7th - Elizabeth the daughter of Peter Erondell, borne the 29th November baptism 1603 Apr 17th - John the son of Peter Erondell, borne the 14th of the same burial 1606 Aug 13th - the daughter of Peter Erondell buried in the churchyard, dead borne burial 1606 Sep 4th - Elizabeth Erondell buried in the new churchyard burial 1607 Sep 6th - Maysodde the wife of Peter Erondell, buried in the south isle (sic) of the church baptism 1609 Dec 21st - Elizabeth daughter of Peter Erondell. borne 14th baptism 1611/2 Feb 9th - Joane daughter of Peter Erondell borne 5th baptism 1613 Sep 12th - Richard the son of Peter Erondell, born 7th baptism 1614/5 Jan 11th - Margaret the daughter of Peter Erondell, borne the 5th baptism 1616 Nov 8th - Sara the daughter of Peter Erondell and Dorothee uxor (wife), borne 2nd

I did check for marriages but there were none at St Mildred Poultry. Regards

Thank you so much! Very helpful! I had thought it likely that the 1600 Elizabeth had died young & this confirms it. It also looks like Peter might have had three wives - maybe he married where they grew up.

Appreciate the help!!

Cheers, Liz

Hi Liz, These 2 profiles, Louisa Lydia Barwell (1838-1923) and Robert Molesworth (1806-1890) both have the error "Born after Template time frame" related to the Magna Carta Project sticker. It looks like both were added by you in Oct 2020. Not familiar with the MC stickers, I'm hoping you can help with correcting the error, many thanks.

Kind Regards, Margaret

Hi! Thanks for pointing these out. I marked both errors as false, but I'm not sure that's a permanent solution for template timeframe errors. Discussion with Andrew Lancaster, one of the managers of the Barwell profile, led to removing the sticker. I'm working on a different solution for the Molesworth profile.

Cheers, Liz

Thanks for your help Liz! Cheers, Margaret
Meant to follow up on the Molesworth profile - I changed the project sticker to a tailored descendant sticker. The Descendant sticker doesn't have a timeframe restriction.

OK, thank you for the Hicks Baltimore family page.. I had seen it or at least added the marriage image. Trying to stay focused on the Register and just adding that but now you GOT ME! I have to get the parents in there or we can not LINK the kids

P.S. Hicks caught my eye because I've spent WAY too much time on Hicks lately ... started with needing to sort out two pairs of James Hicks m Judith Collier (aunt/niece & turns out that most Hicks researchers say they married father/son). If you find yourself in amongst Virginia Hicks, let me know (earliest of the group I've been working on is Robert Hicks-5684, who was probably born about 1635 and turns up in Virginia land records in 1654).

I'm so distantly related (according to WikiTree's Relationship Finder) that DNA would not be useful.

Hi Liz!

Hi Liz,

Would you please link Schuffert-25 to his mother, Conrad-14? I can't do it because of project protection. Thank you! E. McCraw.

posted by E. McCraw
Hi! Could you post the request on Conrad-14's profile? One of the profile managers should be able to attach him. Or you could post to G2G. Having read through the various biographies, I've concluded that I am not familiar enough with this family to say whether or not Schuffert-25 should be attached as son of Conrad-14 & Schuffert-6. The bio for Mary Clare (Conrad) Schuffert lists her children, and her son John is listed with a wife other than Catherine Hill (who is listed as Schuffert-25's wife); another son, George, is listed as born 1754 (which is the birth date for Schuffert-25). says that everything's been sorted by Schuffert-25 bio, but I still got lost. The will transcription supports a son John, but Sr/Jr does not necessarily identify father & son. Sr & Jr was used at the time in official records to distinguish men of the same name in the same area - not necessarily father/son or even uncle/nephew.

Sorry, but I just don't feel qualified to override the PPP that the US Southern Colonies Project added to the profile. (Posting a comment on Conrad-14 will send it to other leaders of the project, who may feel differently.)

Thanks! Liz

edit - corrected the WikiTree ID for Schuffert-25

You mentioned on notes on leadership page "rehoming" of the earlier US Southern Colonies Space pages. Let me know if I can help there. I know we had a hierarchy at that time. Many I think had Jilliane'sname on them, so guess by now you have adopted them.

posted by Mary Richardson
Thanks Mary! Let me figure out where I was on those. I know that I contacted the Louisiana/Acadian projects about the French one (haven't heard back yet). I'm also working on gathering them under a project category so we can track them better, since Jillaine was adamantly opposed to having them remain as project-managed pages (so yes, I've asked to be added as a manager on the ones I found... I think I found them all).

The ones for Maryland, Virginia, Georgia & Carolina/NC/SC are the ones to be renamed ... History - see the list below the table at

Hi, Liz!

Thank you for your participation in October’s 2020 Source-a-thon. Your contributions helped us to clear over 57,000 profiles that needed sourcing. This makes our Shared Tree all that much better.

Keep up the great work!

Liz, thank you for the work you did on Hugh Harry's profile, especially disconnecting him from a Brinton mother. (I just noticed this today.) This makes my line back then so much more accurate.
posted by Pip Sheppard
Thank you for all your hard work. I am rather new o Wikitree and appreciate all the hard work of those who had a lot of my ancestors up and ready to connect. Still trying to figure out some lineage brick walls. Still working on improving my sourcing, which is I am more conscious of nowadays. Which is fine, I find that a good challenge. I still have some branches, twigs to work on. Would love to work further on particular projects that interest me, when I can find more time that is. {Covid kinda making that a bit more tricky with kids in the mix ;) Looking forward to things settling down there. And getting back to normal there.} Genealogy is my big passion. Wish I had more time for it. Anyway thanks for your all your work! :)

Hi, Liz! I'm adding census categories as usual and I have a question hopefully to avoid you some extra work! Thank you always for your work on this.

How do I designate that it's a container category? I tried searching WikiTree for help on this but I must be using the wrong search terms or something. I feel like I've seen a Template that gets added to pages like this. Thank you for your assistance!

Hi Liz, Re Robert Green-4383.

I removed the 'See also' you had added (DAR/GRS with Robert's DAR ID# AO47306). I'm a DAR member; I think that including his DAR ID# is what the below quote from their site states should not be done. "The databases contain DAR proprietary information which should under no circumstances be redistributed to others; assembled or collected for purposes other than DAR membership or for citation in genealogical scholarship; or reproduced, published, or posted in any form whatsoever."

Thanks for your work on his profile.

Hi Liz,

Working on the George Reade-10 Magna Carta trail to Lacy-284, and looking at the G2G question "How should the relationship finder work?" The posted trail from (Tailbois-7, Tailbois-8, to Talboys_of_Kyme-1 seems have been changed to ...

1. Mildred is the daughter of George Reade-10 Esq. [confident] Reade-10
2. George is the son of Mildred (Windebank) Reade [confident] Windebank-2
3. Mildred is the daughter of Frances (Dymoke) Windebanke [confident] Dymoke-8
4. Frances is the daughter of Anne (Tailboys) Carr [confident] Tailboys-43
5. Anne is the daughter of George Tailboys [confident] Tailboys-41
6. George is the son of Robert Tailboys [confident] Tailboys-39
7. Robert is the son of Elizabeth (Bonville) Tailboys [confident] Bonville-28

Should this question be amended to show the change. Might save someone else time trying to figure out the changed trail.

Thanks Liz Bettye Holland-3338

I'm not sure what you're asking. I think probably the best would be to delete from Reade-10 the reference to the 2015 G2G discussion.
posted by Liz (Noland) Shifflett
Thanks Liz, sounds like the best thing to do is like you said, delete Reade-10 reference to the question. I will be happy to do this only thing I never have deleted a reference to a G2G question. Would you mind doing the favor?

Thank you! Bettye

Done :D

I also redid the Magna Carta Project section a bit.

Thank you, Liz. I bought a book that has some pedigrees, and I was checking out the pedigree of John of Gaunt (Plantagenet-66) to see how the book lines up with WikiTree. Pedigree for John Plantagenet-66 to George Reade-10 turned out spot on, with the exception of the misstep of the G2G post, that threw me off.

Thank you, Liz, I appreciate the work you do!


Happy New Year Liz, hopefully it will be an interesting one !

Looks like the mgr. on DeLancaster-11 is m.i.a., so you'll probably need to complete this one.


I added you to John de Braose' trusted list and in the process was invited to add you to any OR ALL of the 4300 other profiles on my trusted list. This might have been more than you bargained for...

It did seem that kindness would compel me to forego this opportunity...
