Hey Melanie, the infant and children mortality categories were on the page originally, to promote adding them. But it was moved to the RtC categories page for discussion, as there has been a lot of back and forth about these categories. I will make sure all this will be moved to the main page once things are decided on, but you probably know how it goes with collaboration, it takes forever to get anything done.

Not sure. I rec'd an earlier WikiTree Newsletter, this month. It had your name and a connection down through MURRAY. I can't find the newsletter again, but it was from me to you, more than 10 degrees. Other name; ENGEL, If I ever find it again, I'll get back to you.

Hi Melanie

On behalf of the Australia Project leadership team, we're carrying out a Project Members Check-in to see if you are still interested in being involved as an active member of the project. In particular, we are ready to launch our new teams for the project. Please could you let me know what team/s you would like to contribute to. A list of teams is on the Australia Project page. Please respond by private message.

We really appreciate your enthusiasm in working on Australian profiles on WikiTree, and thank you for all the work you have been doing. We look forward to hearing back from you and that you will decide to be part of the project as we move forward with the new teams for the project. Regards, Gillian

Thanks Melanie...makes sense now that I found the 'more comments' button at the bottom of the page! (really missing my laptop - wikitreeing via smartphone is a pain).

Leave it with me, I'm sure we can fit them in somehow.

Great interview Melanie!

It seems that wherever I'm led on my Wikitree travels, you've already 'signed the guestbook' - now I understand why!

Thanks for everything you do.
