Other interests are the Popes Project where I'm contributing to a standardised approach to the biographical information.
I’m interested in sorting out the Shipping category as it is very disjointed. I’ve created a Free Space for discussion on how the categorisation for shipping can be improved.
In the event of my untimely demise I want to be sure that none of my hard work on WikiTree ends up being deleted. While I fully intend on being around to manage all my profiles for the next 30 years or so, in the event of my sudden death I hereby give permission for all of my private profiles to be transferred to any of the following slightly-active WikiTreers in my family, whether or not they are currently on the trusted lists:
If none of my family wish to take over my profiles, I give permission for the WikiTree leaders to become profile manager for these profiles.

Please add pre-1500 to your followed tags and make sure you have continued close work with the appropriate projects. They can help you avoid naming issues and have a lot of experience with the validity of some sources for medieval persons.
