Librarian in Canberra, Australia. Gradually adding my family to Wikitree as I locate confirming references.

As a cataloguer, I particularly like adding categories to link profiles together e.g. people who came out on the same ship or who lived in the same small town.

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,


Leader, Global Cemeteries

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.

Appreciated the tidy up of John McEwin. Have adopted the reference you tidied up as a template, as I've used that book quite often.

Hi, Kathleen. I live not far from Wickham so thought I could take some pics for you when I'm there. However I couldn't find George St on the map. If you can add any more details to the profiles I'll see if I can get anything. Also often in Alverstoke. Regards, C
