My research interests include families of the Shoalhaven region of NSW, Australian librarians, and random interesting people I come across in Trove Newspapers. I'm gradually adding my extended family to Wikitree as I locate confirming references.

Hi Kath,

On behalf of the Australia Project leadership team, we're carrying out a Project Members Check-in to see if you are still interested in being involved as an active member of the project.

We have you in as the leader of the Profile improvers Team, so just a checkin to confirm you are still active in that team.

A list of teams is on the Australia Project page. Please respond by private message.

We really appreciate your enthusiasm in working on Australian profiles on WikiTree, and thank you for all the work you have been doing. We look forward to hearing back from you and that you will decide to be part of the project as we move forward with the new teams for the project.

Kind Regards

Hello, Kathleen,

Thank you so much for responding to our check-in for the Integrators Project.

The project is sorry to lose you, but we understand that interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to the branches they are currently building. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

If you are a member of the Integrators Google Group and changed your email address please send it to me in a private message so I can remove you from the Google group.

Hi Kathleen,

I sent you a message a week ago about the new-look Global Cemeteries Project but have not yet heard back from you. If you would like to continue in the project, please can you PM me your team(s) selections and your e-mail address for the Google group.

If I don’t hear back from you by this time next week I’ll assume you no longer wish to be in the project at this time.

Many thanks,

Susie :-)

Hi Kathleen,

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,

wrt Thomas Moon- I have a family that sailed to Australia in the Cornwall, so I was adding the category. I checked out the others from Kent in the category, and saw your note about a missing baptism. Found it right away in Find My Past, and once I knew I was looking for 1808 instead of 1802, it was easy to find in Family Search.

Being dissenters might account for the delay in baptism.
