Hi Lisa,

I haven’t heard back from you about the break up of the United Kingdom Project. I hope all is well with you. I assume you don’t wish to join any of the country-level projects at present, and will go ahead and remove the United Kingdom badge. If you wish to join England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland in the future, you would be most welcome to do so via the respective G2G sign-up post.

Many thanks for all your contributions,

Susie :-)

Hi Lisa,

Thank you for your comment about Comfort Vanderbilt/Beall. Most genealogies show her maiden name as Vanderbilt, but none have documentation to back this up. I spent years along with another Vanderbilt researcher trying to find any documentation and no such given name appears anywhere in the various Vanderbilt lines. As a matter of fact, in the mid 1700s all the given names for this family were still in Dutch, not English. That was the first clue that there was something not quite right. Then old family papers sometimes name her as Beall, so this is what I have in my tree for the moment. At least until proven otherwise. Karen Nichols-Rexwall

Hi Lisa,

We realise the time has come to dissolve the UK Project in favour of the individual country projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

We are checking in with all UK badge holders to find out which country project(s) you would like to be in so you can collaborate with other members, have the opportunity to select which team(s) you would like to join, and so we can ensure you have all the correct badges.

Please respond by PM to let us know which country project(s) you would like to be in. Please don’t assume we know. We are effectively starting from scratch to make sure no one falls through the cracks.

Once you have done this, the Coordinator for Membership in the relevant country project(s) will be in touch to help get you situated.

Many thanks,

Hi! Thank you for your kind words regarding William Phelps of Crewkerne. You mentioned that you are DNA tested descendant (through a male first cousin) of William b. 1660 England who went to Maryland. You must be a descendant of Walter Phelps of Anne Arundel Co., Maryland? Did you have your Phelps relative tested for his yDNA to confirm the correct Phelps line? Also, please join the FB group called Phelps Genealogy in America. I agree there have been so many misunderstandings on these lines and there are so many Phelps genealogies but they are not all related. The yDNA testing has been extremely instrumental in sorting out the various Phelps lines in USA. Warm regards. Dorothy
