Hi, Kathleen!

Thank you for your participation in October 2020’s Source-a-thon. Your contributions helped us to clear over 57,000 profiles that needed sourcing. This makes our Shared Tree all that much better.

Keep up the great work!

Hello Kathleen,

The Australia Project leadership team are carrying out a check-in to see how you are going in the project and especially to thank you for all your work on Australian profiles on WikiTree. We really value your participation.

Please could you get back to me by private message to let me know if you are happy with your current role and team involvement within the project or if you would like to do something additional or different. Currently we have you down as the Team Leader of the Profile Improvers team. If you would like a change, you can check on the Australia Project page to see what other options there are.

It would also be great to hear any feedback and any suggestions that you have to improve the project. On a practical note, if you are a member of the google group, are you receiving messages ok?

I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

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

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 :-)

Leader, Global Cemeteries Project

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.

Happy New Year
