Hi Andrea,

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,


Leader, Global Cemeteries

Hi Andrea,

I would like to include Susannah Martin in the Quaker Project. She and her husband, William Adams were original members of the Deep Creek Monthly Meeting in Yadkin/Surry County, North Carolina. They also attended other MMs: Chester, PA; Cane Creek, NC; Deep River, NC. I have looked through the help pages on categorization and the Quaker Project page, but it is not at all clear to me how to include her in this category. Would you give me the correct format or edit her profile yourself? Thank you!

Hi Andrea, you posted a message back on Dec 6 2015 and I finally found it. Lately, I've been busy sourcing and entering a huge number of names to be exported into WikiTree. Yes, I have come across your name and those orphaned files. I've claimed them when they match and I may have merged a few others we had in common. And, I found a couple mistakes of my own. Hopefully, all is well now. I spent a lot of time going through the Hayhursts and Edgells.
