Isabelle was featured in a Meet Our Members Post on the WikiTree Blog!

I was born and raised in a small village ouside the suburbs of Paris, France. My father is from the same village; his mother was Swiss-born. My mother, on the other hand, is a true Fleming from Lille, with lots of Belgian ancestors.

My family tree was started more than 30 years ago with data from my great-grandparents "livret de famille" - the small booklet the mayor gives you when you get married, which is an official document. I thought my great-great-grandma had an interesting name and that's how I caught the bug.

I found a Quaker wife in family tree. They have her name as Elizabeth unknown I did find books where she listed as Elizabeth Wingfield there mentioned in profile to Quaker records. Is there anyway to see if the Quakers can verify her Birth names. I sure this good reference or source for her. But thought let the Quaker project know what I found see if they can find anything. I am currently trying to contact the Wingfield family society to see if they have anything on her as well. I hope this helps with this profile.

Hi Isabelle,

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 Arborists, Categories and Middlesex Teams.

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.

Thank you Isabelle for adding the right category box on my latest new profile family starting with Carrie Selk! I am writing an article about her for my genealogy column in our local weekly newspaper! Looks much better now that you have put your touch on her! Many thanks to you Isabelle!!
Salut isabelle,

tu peux regarder ce G2G svp?

La source qu'elle cite en réaction à la première réponse qu'elle a reçue semble une traduction d'un livre de noblesse, ne sais pas lequel.

Bonjour Isabelle,

je m'apprête à traduire la page du projet Québécois, et voulais savoir où je devrais la relier dans le Portail Francophone avant de commencer. Suggestions?

A priori, aucune idée... Il faut que je regarde.
Very impressive Isabelle! Where do you find the time? Scott

Hello Isabelle,

As one of the co-leaders of the European Aristocrats project, I'm messaging to inform you that we are removing the "House Assignments" from our project structure. You are absolutely still welcome to work on the profiles from the families that you chose, we are simply removing the official House Assignments as, for the most part, people choose to work on whichever profiles interest them. We're glad to have you in the project and we hope that you continue to work with us!

On a personal note, thank you so much for your incredible and dedicated work on the French nobility and aristocracy! We value you greatly; you're simply marvelous :)

Regards, Amy Utting

Sorry to be so long in answering your request. I would like to remain a member of the France Project tho I have not been very active lately, at anything. Hope to get restarted and do more this coming year. If you want to remove me until I become active and rejoin I will certainly understand.

Thanks, Lynne

Re: Bruno d'Harcort

Everything I can find on him gives the family name as d'Harcort.

Hello Isabelle, I haven't contributed much to the French project, and don't expect to do much in the near future. I'm always glad to receive news of new profiles, and may decide to re-join in the future. But for now am still mostly involved with the American Midwest. Thanks for reaching out. Constance

Hello Isabelle,

Just a quick note to introduce myself as your new Team leader for Greater London and Middlesex. I have been a Wikitree member for over two years but have been tracing my tree for over 30 years and many lines are from Middlesex and go back pre-1500. I look forward to working with you all to try and reduce the unsourced and unconnected and find more resources. Please don't hesitate to ask for assistance, I'll always try and help. Thank you for your help so far. Valerie Crowley. Team Leader

Hi Isabelle,

Yes, I am planning to remain a member of the France project. I have also sent a response to the requested questionnaire.

Hello Isabelle,

Could you revisit this notional family group and disconnect the unsupported relationships? It appears highly problematic.

Thanks in advance.

Bonjour, Isabelle. I checked and the people at the center of 16th century imposture case of Martin Guerre do not appear to be on Wikitree. I'm speaking of course of Martin Guerre himself, his wife Bertrande, and Arnaud du Tilh, the "new" Martin. Any chance of the French Roots project adding them? You are much more qualified than I.
