The following sketch is written by Barry's Dad, so that his Bio will have content. Of course, this is the doting Dad's view of Barry's world. Now that I've convinced him to engage with genealogy and WikiTree, he will likely revise this after his own self-image. But I hope he saves this as an addendum.
After a degree and research program in chemical physics (honored as a Goldwater Scholar), Barry got a PhD, in mathematics. Barry is now a number theorist and Associate Professor of Mathematics with a love of teaching. He helps undergrads write math research papers and get them published. Beyond teaching, Barry translates math papers from Russian, German, and French as required by his research, and gives math talks at conferences and colloquia.
Barry married his college sweetheart. They have a daughter, and live in a tiny town in a bucolic setting, a house on a hill with a view of a horse farm. The family walks through a corn field to reach a local produce market (and neighboring brew pub).
Barry plays piano and is an occasional drummer. He is trained in ballroom dancing, and helps with the cooking. He is a California dude who has retired his surfboard and relocated 2,600 miles to the east. He still rides a skateboard.

You should be able to work on John Groton. If you show documentation Proving his name should be spelled differently. I will be glad to show it as an alternative spelling.

I think we need to separate your project page about your Rhode Island Census of 1774 project from the page that is linked as a source citation.
It appears to me that all of the pages that link to that page are profiles that use it as a source citation. Is that correct? If so, we can create a new page for the project without much fuss.

I’m the new Project Coordinator for the England Project. I am contacting you, as there have been some recent changes to the project which we are keen to bring to your attention. Please look at the England Project page for more information on the changes and the ways members are able to actively contribute moving forward. Once you have considered how you would like to participate, please contact either myself or Susie to let us know. We can then list your involvement, help you join the Google group forum for England, and give you any other help you may need to get going. If we don’t hear back from you we’ll assume you do not wish to be a part of the England Project for the time being. We really hope you will join the team! Gillian
