I currently live in Singapore although have lived around the world at some point in my life. I was born in Scotland to Scottish ancestors and have a keen interest in genealogy and history in general. I study family history from the perspective of the stories; the reasons why people took the decisions they did and undertook the journeys they made. I also look to find those that time has forgotten; those men and women that lived their lives, loved and laughed, just as we do today but are now lost.
My focus is on the families of Straitons, and its many variants, originating in Scotland under King David I in the early 12th Century. The history of many of the main line family was published under the guise of "Stratons of Lauriston" but I have explored many of the offshoots and over time will publish them here.
I have a keen history bent and search for gaps and holes. I head up the Scots in Foreign Service Project which is looking to fill gaps in our understanding of those Scots that fought abroad until about 1700 and also the Scots Abroad Project that is looking to find the migration patterns of our Scottish ancestors before the American, and later, migrations.

Is the template for the Category "Scots Abroad" suppose to be added to profiles of "Scots Abroad"?
Or is the template only intended for the profiles of the members who participate in the project?

Did you ever hear back from the profile manager for the duplicate King George IV? In the G2G post you said you'd give him a week to respond; that was March 20. https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/364795/apparent-duplicate-of-king-george-iv Thanks!

I posted on G2G about a duplicate profile I found for King George IV. I'm assuming this is something that happens occasionally so y'all will know what to do with it! I tagged it with euroaristo but I think a lot of the people commenting are from outside of the project trying to be helpful, so I've decided to post on your page directly. Here's the link: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/364795/apparent-duplicate-of-king-george-iv?show=364882#a364882
