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

My grandfather instilled in me the love for family history. He always said it was important to know where we came from because like the saying, Without the Past, There is No Future.

My family is one of the oldest families on the Gulf Coast. They came in 1699 from Canada with D'Iberville. We have a rich and fantastic heritage here on the Coast. One worth remembering and sharing.

I have dedicated well over 25 years in researching the families of the Coast including, Saucier, Ladner, Morin/Moran, Cuevas, Nicaise/Necaise, Dedeaux, Dubuisson, and many others.

Looking up my brick walls I decided to work on Curren Fondren, my 8th ggf and a relative of yours I think. We may be cousins. Anyway, I found almost nothing.

In my personal data base I have referenced "Saucier, Wayne, The Saucier Family (Ancestry.com. Updated: 2004-12-08 )" no doubt your family. I couldn't find Fondren on the present Saucier family online. I was wondering if any new information has come to light about our Curren?

Anything would be appreciated.

Hi Michelle, a couple of weeks ago I sent out a check-in for the US Civil War Project, this is just a quick reminder to let me know if you intend to remain in the Project. Hope to hear from you soon. I'll assume your not interested if I don't hear back from you by the end of February. Thank you.

Hi Michelle, I just wanted to thank you for all the work you've done to improve the US Civil War Between the States Project. I'm doing a check-in with all project members and wanted to verify that you're still interested in being a member of the project. Also, any suggestions for the Project would be welcome. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi Michelle, I sent you a private message about the Dedeaux family but was not logged into Wikitree properly. I wanted to make sure you knew that it wasn't spam.

Best regards, Nate

Hi Michelle. I am still alive, but have not had much spare time recently. I hope to spend a little time between now and the end of the year adding to profiles in my tree. Thank you for all you do. Michelle Willer
Hi Michelle. I would like to remain in the Connectors Project! My level of activity on WikiTree waxes and wanes these days, but when I am on the site I do still work on connecting the global tree. Most often my work is centred around connecting profiles created by the Global Cemeteries Project, and I also sometimes like to work on the Unconnected Trees.

Thanks for checking in!

Hi, Michelle,

I'm still in, but I'm currently working on my third genealogy course in the American Genealogical Series through the National Genealogical Society. Thanks for checking in, though. :)

Hi Michelle,

I'm somewhat active, checking in every month or so but not doing any maintenance. I do plan on being more active soon, as I'm writing a book inspired by my ancestors, and I'm sure I'll be adding to my research here as I go.

Thanks for checking in! Rose Nunez Smith

Hi , I received your message about being active still and I am not at this time. So feel welcome to cut me wherever is needed. Unfortunately , I am unable to keep up with the ins and outs of WikiTree procedures and changes. Perhaps I will have time in the future to freely give. At the present I am active and focusing my free time with the Alzheimer's Association. Thank you for touching base with me.

Keep on WikiTreeing!!

Hi Michelle

It has been a couple of weeks since we contacted you about your participation in the Louisiana Families Project and as we haven't heard from you, we are following up to make sure you wish to remain a member.

We understand that interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to the branches they are currently building. If this is the case for you, please let us know.

If we do not hear back from you within the week, we will assume you have moved on to other things for the moment and remove you from the project. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.

Karen ~ Volunteer Coordinator

Hi Michelle,

I sent you a PM a few weeks ago but didn't receive a reply so here's the answer. I am very much still active as you can see from my Club 100 and 1000 badges that I’ve acquired every month since I joined over six years ago. I’ve currently been working mostly on cleaning up my “Suggestions” but am still doing merges, creating cemeteries and adding small towns, working on doing some connections, searching out and adding sources to mine and helping do the same for others, as well as adding new profiles and helping other members with their research from time to time. I’ve made over 67,000 contributions and although I don’t know how to check I have probably created over a thousand profiles… and yes, I’m having a blast! Thanks for asking, your 17th cousin once removed, - Dave
