Hello Patricia and...I am new to gathering information about my family and have some questions. A major concern in linking family members. For example, I know about multiple marriages with multiple children. However, it seems very linear to complete individual profiles when people are clearly in a group. For example, do I include a son with is father, his mother, and the stepmother who raised him in separate profiles with overlapping information? Forces hopping around individuals to provide complete information. I would prefer writing a summary of a family to attach.

Additionally, there lots of people searching a shared family. I have received the names of individuals that kinda clutter my list. I enjoy looking for a profiles, but find it rude...if I even knew how...to remove names limited to a shared last name.

I appreciate Patricia especially and others who help with my efforts. Susan

Hi Susan, There is only one profile for each person on WikiTree so you should link the profile to the correct birth parent and include information about the family in the Biography section on the profiles.

Thank you Patricia for your purpose of merging.

Other : you search from where comes the name ROCHE (RoaCH). It sound French. Do you have any link with this (my) country ?

posted by Thiery Badoc
You're welcome Thiery. We have not found records, proving where our Roach ancestors came from. They migrated to America from somewhere, back in 1700's possibly from either Ireland, England and France. We may never know for sure.

Hi, Patricia

The Ambassadors project has been reorganizing and is looking for those who have a membership at a genealogical society, to help in spreading the word about WikiTree.

We're working on ways to improve how WikiTree connects and interacts with genealogical and local history societies. This is the kind of thing we want to do:

  • Liaise with societies: set up your local society with a free-space page and some WikiTree materials as part of a package.
  • Use social media to promote what societies are offering on WikiTree.
  • Encourage bloggers to blog about societies and the resources available to them on WikiTree.

Are you interested in participating in some way? Do you have some ideas to share?

Azure Rae ~ co-Leader of Ambassadors Project

Hi Azure, Before the Covid closing of our genealogy society research center, I was a frequent volunteer and user of their materials, always making sure that the other researchers there, were aware of WikiTree. I did WikiTree profiles for residents in one of the local cemeteries, for them to reference, but with them being closed, there is very little I can currently do. There has been no interest among them, as we are all old, and most are longtime loyal Ancestry users. The meeting programs are done via Zoom and the research center doors are locked.

Hi

Thanks for spotting the double entry of Ellen Morgan's profile, I've merged these. The software glitch that causes this is frustrating, but lately has been uncommon.

Hi Patricia, you suggested a merge of Isabella Drydens. I am new to Wiki tree and a newbie to the whole family tree thing... I am wondering who she is to you and how to square the discrepancy between birth dates? Thank you! Jane
posted by Jane Renton
Hi Jane, I am not related to Isabella, just working on a list of duplicate profiles in need of mergeing. You are the profile manager of both profiles for Isabella, so a check of your sources for each date will help sort that out, and you can select the correct date when merging them.

Thank you Patricia, I don't know what I was doing doubling up on Lily, Lillie Lane. I am usually looking for the double when putting up a person. Must be the lockdown sending me crazy - not really, love all the spare time to do the family tree. Not enough hours in the day for me at the moment. Thanks once again. Stay safe and be happy. Joan ps love your background.

Even with our best efforts, that duplicate profile can be elusive. Indeed, WikiTree is serving as a distraction, while staying home so much.

The background image is from a collection that member, Debbie Black made, for us to use. They are here https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Simple_Backgrounds
