Hi Linda,

It has been a couple of weeks since we contacted you about your participation in the Southern Colonies Project. As we haven't heard from you, we are following up to make sure you wish to remain a member.

We understand that interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent their ancestors. If this is the case for you, please let us know.

If we do not hear back from you within the week, we will assume you have moved on to other things for the moment and remove you from the project. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.

Hi Linda,

On behalf of the US Southern Colonies Project leaders, I am doing a six-month check-in with members to see what aspects of the project interest them most.

1) We would like to learn the number of contributions you have made in the last two months (May and April) to Southern Colonies?

2) We would like to know if you have joined other Southern Colonies Subprojects, such as Southern Pioneers Project. Or have you worked on other subprojects?

3) Your activity in Southern Pioneers Project.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Linda,

I missed your adding the Barnes tag to your profile. If I can be of assistance, please contact me. If you trace your roots to my Irish immigrant, Brinsley (Barnes-1145)or Solomon by all means let’s connect. I operate a website devoted to Brinsley and Solomon Sr. (Barnes-368) both of whom migrated to what became Wilkes County, NC in 1777. Solomon arrived in what was then Rowan County in about 1771. Brinsley arrived in Wilkes about 1784. At the time this was Indian Territory. Solomon’s roots are not known for sure. Some contend that he was English other say Irish. The website also discusses their descendants who migrated to Kentucky, Indiana and Missouri. Embark with me on an adventure to discover unknown fact about the Barnes’s, our Irish family who has been in America since 1734. Discover the stories about Brinsley our Ole Irish Immigrant, Deaf John, Handsome Jim, The Union sympathizing preacher Uncle Sol, or Jehu who was murdered by his brother. Meet these ancestors by clicking on the next link but read the rest of the message before doing…/ Chose an adventure by clicking on one of the stories. A new story is announced every three or four month. The photo gallery contains pictures of our family. Browse around and learn about our annual reunion or ask a question on the forum. To be notified every time a new adventure is added to our website, fill out the form at

Hi Linda! Jillaine just posted to your G2G question about a Virginia project. I could be your "figurehead" leader if you wanted to do, say, a Virginia Colony Project. (It already has a category :D - Category:Virginia_Colony). Let me know, or post to G2G. Cheers, Liz

You're welcome! I got sidetracked with the register (I'd been looking through it for Harris information, but Martin Martin was too good not to try to find in WikiTree!). I'll quit soon, but - yup, a mess! Good luck, and glad I could help. Cheers, Liz
