Hi Keith!

It's time for our annual Scotland Project check-in!

This year we are hoping to learn what our membership would like to accomplish over the next 12 months. In case you aren't aware, this year is WikiTree's ""Year of Connections"" and the Project's leadership would like to contribute to this in as many ways as possible.

We would appreciate it if you would share your thoughts and ideas with us on how we can accomplish this goal. We would also appreciate it if you would provide some feedback on our existing goals, including:

  • If you have not yet signed up to help on one of the project's teams, which team(s) would you be interested in joining?
  • How often should we provide a Project Newsletter?
  • Have you participated in the Tartan Trail? If not, is this something you'd be interested in doing?
  • Do you have a question(s) that we could add to a Frequently Asked Questions page?
  • Any suggestions or ideas you have on ways to improve the Scotland Project in general

We continue to communicate with our Project members via Google Group (official) and Discord (unofficial), as well as G2G. You may also reach out to any of the Project leaders via WikiTree's internal messaging system at any time.

Thank you for all you do to help the Scotland Project become a knowledge hub for Scottish genealogical research! We wish you all the best in 2022!

Sincerely, Amy Gilpin on behalf of the Scotland Project Leaders

Welcome to WikiTree and DNA.

When you have your part of our one big tree fleshed out and you are ready to supplement it with DNA matches, please check out the DNA Help category page to see all the DNA help that is available, and the How to Get Started page in particular.

When you are ready to start confirming that your DNA matches correspond with your genealogy sources, be sure to follow the guidance at the DNA Confirmation help page. Also try out the DNA Confirmation Citation Maker, it can simplify the job.

Keith - I noticed some time ago on FTDNA that you and I are a "0 distance" match for mitochondrial DNA. (In fact, your name is the first one listed in my "match" list). I never followed up on it because your earliest known ancestor in your female line (Susannah Cady) is not related to me (I tried wikitree's "relationship finder" and came up empty, and your maternal line stops with her mother. But on a lark, today, I tried the relationship finder to see whether I am connected to YOU. And, what a surprise!, I discovered that although you and I are not closely related, we have a whopping 237 common ancestors! I was especially intrigued to see that we share Thomasine Frost and Edmund Rice (Thomasine is your 10th GGrandmother; my 11th). So this is especially exciting to me because I can trace my maternal lineage directly to Thomasine Frost with "fairly good" confidence except for one "iffy" generation, around generation #8. Unfortunately, the lineages that wikitree "pops up" first for each of us to Thomasine Frost are not straight maternal lines, but I know that there is one for me (again with the uncertainty in the middle). Is there one for you too? If so this would be pretty firm genetic evidence that we both do indeed descend from Thomasine Frost and Edmund Rice (as well as their ancestors, including Thomasine's grandmother, Joanna Strutt), and it would help me to be less uncertain about that "iffy" generation in my maternal line to Thomasine. I hope we can confirm that!!
posted by Barbara Bond
Oh phooey, I just explored more, and it doesn't look like any of the four connections for you to Thomasine Frost are on a direct maternal line. But given that we share mtDNA, there must be a shared ancient grandmother out there somewhere!

Hi Traci,

Yes, I am still interested in being a member of the Project. I have been busy lately working on another site learning as much as I can about genetics, and now I am back with only WikiTree to work on. I will start first by visiting the Project page and go from there. On a side note, I just want to say thank you for teaching me so much just by watching you work on other projects. If I am ever half as good as you are on WikiTree, I will be proud of myself. Your work is impeccable and amazingly professional. Thank you, Traci, Keith

Thanks for responding, Keith. You're too kind! :-) We're glad you're staying with us!

I encourage you to join our Google Group - you can send a join request here: The Google Group is where our project communicates and you can ask questions about German genealogy there. It's a really helpful group. :-)

Best regards, Traci

Hi Keith,

I wrote to you recently as part of the England Project's six-monthly check-in with our project members. I have not heard back from you. I hope you are well.

If you could please drop me a quick note to confirm whether you are still interested in the project and wish to remain an active member, that would be very helpful.

If we do not hear from you within the next 2 weeks, we will assume you are no longer active in the England Project and remove you from our list of project members. You would be most welcome to re-apply to join the project at a later time by signing-up on the project’s G2G welcome post.

Many thanks!

Hi Keith,

I would like to thank you for all your contributions towards the goals of the England Project during the past six months. We've achieved a huge amount during this period and we couldn't have done it without you and our other project members.

As the England Project Leaders, we are completing our six monthly check-in with all project members.

Are you happy to stay in your current project teams? Which teams are you most active in? Are there other teams you would like to join or become more active in?

Also, do you have any feedback on what the project is doing well and anything we could do better in the future?

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

Many thanks!

Good evening,

Are you still actively researching the Calverts, Glasfords, and connected family? I would like to clean up their profiles and add sources, but I thought I would check with you first.

All the best, Jason

The Germany Project Leaders are doing their semi-annual check-in with all project members and we want to verify that you’re still interested in being a member of the Project. Please respond by private message and let me know.

REMINDERS: (1) We use Google Groups for project collaboration and you aren’t yet a member of the group, please submit a join request here (make sure to add your name/WikiTree ID to the request). (2) I see you've added German_Roots (our old project name) to your G2G tags, you should also add GERMANY to your followed G2G tags so you don't miss any discussions in G2G (see: Help:Tags#How_to_follow_tags Help:Tags).

Are you currently working with one of our Sub-projects or Teams? If not, take a look at our main Project page for a full list. We recently launched a new Profile Improvement Team and are seeking new team members. Let me know if you’re interested.

We really appreciate your contributions on WikiTree, and thank you for all your hard work. If you have any questions, please ask. We would also love to hear any feedback you may have for the project.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

It’s time for a Project check-in!

Scotland Project Leaders check in with you at least once a year to see how you are doing. With the changes happening around the world, we understand that life is hectic right now.

What are you planning to work on for the Scotland Project this year? Are you happy with the team(s) you part of, or would you like to make some changes?

This time round, we’re also looking for feedback on the use of Google Group and Discord. Do you use one or both of these? If you don’t use either of them, what is the best way to ensure you receive Project communications? If you would like to join us on Google Group or Discord, let us know in your response.

Hi Keith,

It's that time of the year again: check-in time! As England Project Leaders, we like to check in with you every six months or so to see how things are progressing. Back in May, we didn't ask for a response due to the rapid emergence of Covid-19 because we understood that people's lives were changing rapidly. While we are still living in a Covid world, we do need to hear back from you this time around

First of all, how are you doing? What are you currently working on? Are you happy with the team(s) you're in, or would you like to change things up?

Secondly, we're looking for some feedback on the Google Group and our Discord server. Do you use either or both of these? If you don't use either, why not? Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve participation and collaboration, either generally or for you personally?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Lizzie, Amy, Joan

Hi Keith,

Your England Leaders are completing the six monthly check in with all team members. I wanted to thank you for your work on English Profiles and particularly your work in the sourcerers team.

These are unprecedented and difficult times, and we understand as Project Leaders that your situation may have changed somewhat in the last few months. What we are all able to/ wish to contribute on Wikitree has changed. Please let me know if you are happy with your current role and team choice or if you wish to do something additional or different. Thank you again on behalf of all the project leaders for everything you do.


Hi Joan,

I want to continue to work on English profiles and keep improving how each one that needs help receives just that. Most of my Family Ancestors are from England, starting with my Great Grandfather, and I love researching every one of them for sources. Keith

Hi Keith,

On behalf of the England Leaders, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your contributions towards the project in the past six months as a Team Member for Sourcerers. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.

Are you happy to stay in your current teams and the project as a whole? Are there any other teams you'd like to join? What are we doing well, and what would you like to see us doing differently moving forwards?

Hi Keith,

We realise the time has come to dissolve the UK Project in favour of the individual country projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

We are checking in with all UK badge holders to find out which country project(s) you would like to be in so you can collaborate with other members, have the opportunity to select which team(s) you would like to join, and so we can ensure you have all the correct badges.

Please respond by PM to let us know which country project(s) you would like to be in. Please don’t assume we know. We are effectively starting from scratch to make sure no one falls through the cracks.

Once you have done this, the Coordinator for Membership in the relevant country project(s) will be in touch to help get you situated.

Many thanks,
