Hi Kay, I am trying to contact GEDI project manager and I found your name. If you are not the correct person to contact, please forward my inquiry. I just proposed a merge on a profile, and this is the 3rd merge, with profiles generated from GEDcom files. I have done a lot of work on GEDI files and am wondering if there is a way to check if these profiles are duplicates, especially the pre 1900 profiles?

Looking forward to your response Elaine Walling-681

Elaine, I sent you a message on Discord since Kay is away with limited internet.

Linda Peterson (Carruth-363)

Thank you for answering so quickly. Sadly I have never gotten Discord to work.
would you say these are a match?

Susanna Brown (Brown-11817) and Privacy Level 60 Susanna Brown (Brown-8379) if so please complete the merge (for me). thank you

posted by Beryl Meehan
Beryl,

As far as I can tell these look like a match. Since 8379 is privacy protected we'll have to contact the PM to merge them (and the husband). And both Susanna should probably be LNAB of Unknown.

posted by Kay (Sands) Knight
I've had no response to my merge proposal. Noticing (now) one is protected perhaps that indicates a living person and thus these maybe are not a match. Perhaps we should reject...do that if you agree...

Thanks for the BioCheck app. I found 5 profiles in my watchlist that had missing references tags.

Dear Kay,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing its first annual check-in with our project members. Please review the following and let us know if you are content where we have placed you or would like to be more involved.

We are in the process of transitioning to a team structure. There will be three participant PIP Teams to start -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. There is also the Voyage Team who guide new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team. You're currently identified as a member of the Biography Team Level 1, working on profiles from your own watchlist and whatever else you find. Biography Teams Levels 2 and 3 will work on designated profiles for notables (Level 3) and everyday people (Level 2). Please let us know if you would like to help with another Team.

We would also like to invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. (When you request to join our GoogleGroup, please be sure to include your Wiki ID). Neither is required; we also use the Profile_Improvement tag in G2G for Project announcements. You will find more information on the GoogleGroup.

We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project and WikiTree. The Project’s mission is to:

Make profiles beautiful! We clean up messy biography sections and sources, and try to set standards for attractive, useful, and well-written biographies, starting with those we manage.

We know you’re working on profiles *smile* We would like to hear about successes you’ve had toward the Project’s goals. We would also appreciate any feedback you might have to help us improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or privately via private message to either of us.

Kay, we would like to especially thank you for all the great work you do to get the GEDCOMs cleaned up.

Sincerely,

Debi Hoag and Robin Shaules Co-Leaders, Profile Improvement Project
