This profile is part of the Germanna, Virginia One Place Study.

The goal of this project is to create genealogies and biographies for those families that settled the tract of land that became known as Germanna.

Project Leader: Laurie Kelley.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • To merge all duplicates into the final lowest profile ID number.
  • Final ID locked, marked as project protected (must be done by one of the Leaders), if the profile meets those requirements.
  • Germanna template included on the page.
  • All relevant categories are added.
  • Parents are correct and documented.
  • Biography is cleaned up, free of any GEDCOM junk, Ancestry trees, etc., and ideally has an actual written biography.
  • Children are linked if able.
  • Link Profile to Global Family Reunion
  • Create a Cemetery Category, if known
  • Create City freepages and link profiles to city and region categories
  • Provide gravestone picture if possible

ps - I had edited the template to include Colony to double check whether the category already existed or not. It doesn't.

Hi Laurie! I've been meaning to do some research on the wanted category of Germanna, Virginia & just now did so. I thought that perhaps Germanna, Virginia Colony would be a better choice, since your OPS is focusing on the families who settled the area in the 1700s. BUT. Since you intend to include descendants and you wanted just one category, Germanna, Virginia is better. You could also go with two categories, one pre-USA (Germanna, Virginia Colony) and one post-USA (Germanna, Virginia).

Let me know your thoughts. If just Germanna, Virginia, I can go ahead and create that category for you. If both or Germanna, Virginia Colony, I can check with my Southern Colony/Virginia contact (one of the US Southern Colonies project leaders - Paula J) & set that up too.

Hi Laurie,

I've added your project to a better category so people can find you. Sounds like it would fit well in our One Place Studies Project. Thanks for starting it!
