Hi Bertram< Thank you for inquiring about getting a American Revolution Sticker for Joell Warner. I'm his 5th great grandson. I'm interested in this process for that sticker as I have other ancestors that were American Revolution Veterans and not all have stickers.

Hi Bertram,

We're so happy to see you are still active on WikiTree and caring about the Dutch profiles. The Dutch Roots Project is looking forward to give the project a new fresh start to put the Dutch in a more prominent place on the WikiTree map. The project is currently managing over 50,000 profiles and the total number of Dutch profiles on WikiTree exceeds 500,000! Within the project we are monitoring the quality of the Dutch profiles and assisting other WikiTreers in producing those profiles. We would love to pick up some other tasks but to do so we need more volunteers. This is why we check in with the members of the DRP to see if you would like to help us expand.

1) Would you like to do some volunteer work for the Dutch Roots Project? 2) If yes, what kind of work would you prefer to do within the Dutch Roots Project? E.g. translating, sourcing, or something else you want to work on?

We hope for a positive reaction but please don't feel obliged to volunteer. We just want to have a group of persons we can ask to help us with certain activities

Kind regards,

Margreet, on behalf of the Dutch Roots Project

Hi Bertram!

Like all WikiTree projects we check in with team members twice per year and it's that time again. Please respond within the next two weeks to let me know:

  1. If you'd like to continue as a PGM project team member. I've noticed that you haven't posted any edits or comments in the last 6 months to PGM profiles so it might be a good time to re-evaluate your likely participation level in the future.
  2. If you're happy with the team you're on (Research and/or Profile Improvement) or if you'd like to make a change
  3. Optionally, what you like since the reboot back in May or what you think could be improved. This could be something about Discord, or Google Groups, or managed profile spreadsheets, or challenge participation or really anything. If you like everything the way it is, you can let me know that too :)

If you'd like to tell me about a particular project or family you're working on, I'd love to hear about that as well.

Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks!

Brad Stauf, PGM membership coordinator

Hi Bertram,

Removing PPP from all not notable post 1811 profiles managed by the Netherlands project

As a first step in our quest for a more managable list of project managed profiles. We are going to review all post 1811 Project Protected Profiles. Every profile from this period which is not a notable profile will lose it's PPP-status.

Our reason for this measure is to get a list which conforms to the WikiTree rules for PPP's (wikitree uses a 200 years limit) We use 1811 becausee it is the start of the civil registration.

Hi/Hoi Bertram!

We hebben je deze keer echt nodig! Als je tijd hebt, help dan alsjeblieft.

WT organiseert dit jaar wekelijkse challenges onder de naam: “Year of Accuracy” We hebben er al veel aan gewerkt maar volgende week wordt een bijzondere.

Of je het nu leuk vindt of niet, we hebben deze week jouw hulp nodig om te laten zien waartoe wij als DRP in staat zijn - vanaf woensdag 9 juni en het is gedurende een week erna, start waarschijnlijk laat voor ons Nederlanders (na middernacht) - de uitdaging is om bakstenen muren neer te halen voor de Nederlandse genealoog Yvette Hoitink.

Ze deed geweldig onderzoek naar haar familie. Deze uitdaging gaat over laten zien dat het beter kan!

We hebben natuurlijk al DRP-leden die meedoen aan de challenge, maar de meeste deelnemers zijn Amerikanen. Ze hebben hulp nodig bij vertalingen, het vinden van betrouwbare bronnen, Nederlandse naamgevingsconventies (omdat we vóór 1811 in profielen zullen duiken en waarschijnlijk patroniemen moeten gebruiken en nooit tussennamen) en het toevoegen van biografieën. We zijn er zeker van dat buitenlanders hulp nodig hebben. En leer veel door deze uitdaging, maar ze hebben wat hulp van ons nodig.

Alsjeblieft, je hulp wordt zeer op prijs gesteld.

Om mee te doen: Schrijf je in HIER.

We really need you this time! If you have time, please help.

WT is organizing weekly challenges this year under the name: “Year of Accuracy” We worked on many before but next week will be special.

If you like it or not, we need your help this week just to show what we as DRP are capable of - starting on Wednesday the 9th of June and it is during a week after, starts probably late for us Dutch (after midnight) - the challenge is to bring down brick walls for Dutch genealogist Yvette Hoitink.

She did great research on her family. This challenge is about showing we can do better!

We have, of course, already DRP members joining the challenge, but most participants are Americans. They will need help on translations, finding reliable sources, Dutch Naming Conventions (as we will dive into profiles before 1811 and probably need to use patronymics and never use Middle Names) and adding biographies. We are sure foreigners need help. And learn lots because of this challenge but they need some help from us.

Please, your help is much appreciated.

Help!

Eef, Bea en/and Astrid.

Hello Bertram,

Thanks for creating pre-1700 profiles like Berber Sibles (abt.1625-), Sible Diurres (abt.1660-), Sime Diurres (abt.1585-abt.1640), Antie Dircks (abt.1605-1649), Trijn Dircks (abt.1605-), Jantsen Dircks (abt.1610-), Seerp Dircks (abt.1560-), Lyudts Hayes (abt.1560-), Eelke Seerps (abt.1590-), Sijtske Seerps (abt.1590-), and Sybe Seerps (abt.1595-).

However, in the case of all these (unlike others you created), the only source provided is genealogieonline.nl which is a tree and not a source in and of itself. Please work with the Dutch Roots project you assigned it to to find a reliable source.

If you have questions or need help with any of this, please let me know.

Thanks.

-William

Hi Bertram, In regards to your query about the Curtis Name Study, we are now categorizing them by their location. If they lived there, they should have the category, if they married there, they should have the category...etc. (i.e. born, married, died, lived there for any period of time).

I created the category for you
