More Genealogy Tools
Apparently my attempts didn't work. (Typical of my endeavors). I can e-mail others, and do fair at adding sources to "unsourced profiles". That is my hobby to try to stave off Alzheimers.
Thank you so much for your picture and sticker. I can't tell you how much I appreciated it... You are very generous indeed.
I am happy to share what little things I can create with anyone who appreciates them, and who will use them. :) Let me know if you have any trouble adding the image to profiles.
Thanks for the work you accomplished during our Connect-A-Thon 2020. It is amazing how many more profiles were created and added to our Shared Tree over the weekend. I hope you’ll join us for the Source-a-thon this fall.

PS: Thanks again for help on reading that death certificate.
Thank you for finding my 4th cousin even if she does not want to speak to me Iat least I know she is there
than you for helping me so much and finding so many of my family I don't know hoe you manage all this I give up at times especially with my Syme family as there are so many and I cannot make out which is mine thank you again. Keep safe
Thank you for your comments, however I am not sure how to take them, in the context of how they were written. In 1917, without electricity, the only way to preserve a body would be to put it in ice, and as far as I know deceased persons were buried as soon as possible. That is why I changed the data field to certain. It is very unlikely that he was transported very far. Back then it took a day to go from Ayr to Townsville. My grandmother told me so. I am sorry if that upset you. I also added your ancestors Findagrave memorial because I found it. I am also sorry if it is not what you liked. As I live here in Ayr, I take a particular interest in the Ayr, Ravenswood, Charters Towers and Townsville district, because of my research. Please see Wikipedia for when Electricity arrived in the area. Unless, of course an enterprising member of the district built his own small plant. I do believe a small electricity supply arrived in Ayr about that same time to drive the local cinema. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_electricity_supply_in_Queensland
As for "Dolly", someone has obviously placed a memorial at the base of the stone and it wasn't me. There also is a missing/broken Headstone beside your gr. grandfather's memorial. Do you know who it belongs to ?
Ayr equals other family members - off the top of my head Aunty Daisy and family, but couldn't tell you how many.
Broken stone -- I would have to go through Mum's notes, but it's not my baby cousin's memorial. Trying to think of who-all else is buried there that might have a separate stone. Uncle Henry has his own memorial (buried with his mother).
Thanks for your interest, and apologies if my posting style made it appear I was "upset".
I know the feeling about not many relatives with an interest in the family tree. I also noticed your connections with the McConnachie's and the Darwen's here in Ayr. My father and his parents were close friends with the McConnachie family here. Sadly, I cannot ask them for further details. Also, my mother spoke of growing up with several "Darwen" girls, but I would need to check which sister, as one family did have quite a few girls. It would be the one the same age or close to. At almost 84, my mother's memory may not be as it was. I do remember "Olive" being mentioned. Do you know that we have a Burial Register search page?
I'm now getting a feeling of deja vu about you knowing, or knowing of, "my" McConnachies. Have we, maybe, discussed them before? (I was contacted by a descendant of Adam McConnachie, but he was more in Bris than up north. Up north was Alexander (Uncle Alec/Alex). It has been years since I was that far north. Time before last when I was Home, we only went as far north as Rocky. Last time we didn't get more north than Deception Bay/Caboolture.
I will have to go through Mother's notes again, to see what else she has on "my" side's connection to the Darwen family. So much cannot be used, as the people are still living.

I left a message for you about a week ago to let you know about the restructuring of the Wales Project into new teams and to ask for your team(s) selection and e-mail address so I can add you to the project’s Google group. I’ve not yet heard back from you with your team(s) selection, so hope you are well, and that everything is ok in your part of the world.
Understanding that we are living in unusual times, I will hang on for another week to make sure that you do indeed want to stay in the project, after which, if I don’t hear from you, I’ll go ahead and remove you. You would, of course, be most welcome to rejoin at any time.
Your England Leaders are completing the six monthly check in with all team members. Thank you for all your work on English Profiles and in particular your work in Data Doctors Team.
These are unprecedented and difficult times, and we understand as Project Leaders that your situation may have changed somewhat in the last few months. What we are all able to/ wish to contribute on Wikitree has changed. Please let me know if you are happy with your current role and team choice, or if you wish to do something additional or different. Thank you again on behalf of all the Project Leaders for everything you do.
As you will have seen, we have been doing some restructuring in the Wales Project and are now organising ourselves into different teams. Please have a look at the new project pages, and let me know 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, are in the Google Group, and receive an invitation to join our Discord server.
Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the Wales Project that you respond to these check-ins.
Susie, Wales Project Co-Leader

Also, I added the polio source.
Just a note about the name 'Beulah', not the ship but the house of a member of the Hume family at Appin which is still there. It's a Hebrew word, refers to Israel.
Would love to have the image you created on the Australian Sources and Citations page, please go ahead and add it. Sorry it has taken so long to respond.
On behalf of the England Leaders, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your contributions towards the project in the past six months as a Team Member for Data Doctors. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.
Are you happy to stay in your current team and the project as a whole? Are there any other teams you'd like to join? What are we doing well, and what would you like to see us doing differently moving forwards?
Please respond to this message via e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.
Susie, England Project Leader :-)
Thanks for your message on the Gam profiles. Please accept my apology if I caused offence by adding the missing siblings profiles.
You may note that I came to the family as a consequence of an identified duplicate. Missing children, in my experience can be a common cause of duplicates so I was simply trying to minimise their likelihood given another managers involvement.
In terms of the alternative name spelling in the Other Last Name field, the addition of names as registered is addressed in the Style Guide. In my experience this too minimises potential duplication.
