Hi Rae,

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

To your comment on Elizabeth (Robinson) Tufts: Yes and maybe. Mitford is the district, used on the census and on birth, marriage and death records. Shipdham is a parish within the district of Mitford. From the parish register she was buried in the parish of Shipdham, and from the death record she died in the district of Mitford. She probably died in Shipdham, but I have not yet found any evidence to confirm it.

To your comment on my page: Elizabeth was my 3rd great grandmother. So for my first time on Wikitree I can say hello cousin.

Hi Rae,

I haven’t yet heard back from you to say whether or not you’d like to continue in the Canada Project. Please can you let me know if you’d like to stay, what team(s) you’d like to be in, and let me know your e-mail address so I can add you to the project Google Group? If I haven’t heard back from you by this time next week I’ll assume you no longer want to be in the project and go ahead and remove you. You would, of course, be most welcome to re-join at any time.

Many thanks,

Hi Rae,

Greg Lavoie, Dave Rutherford and I have put a lot of work into restructuring the Canada Project. Have a look at the new project page.

You'll see that we've changed the project name to the Canada Project and the badge will be changed shortly. We've done this in order to provide lots of ways for people to contribute to Canadian Profiles. We've also moved towards a team approach with top level teams being lead by Project Coordinators and sub-teams being lead by Team Leaders.

Would you like to continue in the Canada Project, and if so, which team(s) would you like to be on?

Let me know if you have any questions. Once I hear back from you I'll add you to the Google group and get you set up in your team(s).

Hi Rae,

Same here, summer and my husband has/had some health problems, so I'm a bit less active at the moment, but Astrid is right if a person was born in the Netherlands but died in New Netherland we can add Dutch Roots to the trusted list and the needs Birth category if a profile still needs Dutch records, and NNS will be added as manager + the profile will receive the NNS template. This because now a Projectbox (template) + project account always go together, and we don't want profiles to end up with a ton of templates an project accounts (managers), so we chose to let just one project manage and add their template and the other project can be added to the trusted list and add just the needs category or categories of that project (Dutch Roots). If a person was born + died in the Netherlands Dutch Roots we will manage them and if someone was born in the Netherlands and emigrated to the New Netherland and died there NNS will.

Hope you have a wonderful summer ?

Greets from the Netherlands where temperatures are quite extreme (tropical) now,

Bea :)

Hi Rae,

I am so sorry I am reacting so slow. I was away for a week.

Hmm........ Your question is: does Aeltje (Helchey) Hendricks belongs to the DRP? Rigth?

I just took a short look at the profile. Aeltjes maiden last name Helchey does not sound very Dutch. Never heard or saw it before, but that doesn't mean it is not possible as I am not knowing all Dutch last names. But it looks very un-Dutch. Her birthplace: the United Provinces of the Netherlands indicates she was born in The Netherlands. But where in The Netherlands? Probably not findable/sourceable.

If she was born in The Netherlands she fits at the DRP of course. But she is in the New Netherlands Settlers Project, so taken good care of. I am not sure but I think there is a "new"agreement to keep a profile to just or the New Settlers or just to the DRP. Bea is better informed at this than me so I will share your question with her if that is okay with you (me learning from her and of your question!)

I see a lot of leads at the internet but no reliable sources at my quick checking.

Her current name is set to her husbands patronym which is doubtfully her current last name as the Dutch women kept their own - most of the time.

I will keep you informed!

Sweet regards Rae!
