WikiTree Day Attendee: 2022

--- if I haven't replied to your email, send me another one! ---

Hello WikiTree cousins and friends!

I am a project coordinator for USBH's Heritage Exchange program and the Jewish Roots Project.

I also chip in for the Cemeteries Project, Data Doctors, and Wikitree Challenges for 2022.

My family is primarily from the American South, as well as a bit of New York and Vermont. Roots extend back to England, Scotland, and other nearby countries, according to DNA, and some paper trails which I’m slowly working on. I’m on AncestryDNA as emartzen, check to see if we're kin there, too!

Notes

  • I do some of my work in honor of Dave Ebaugh, a truly Wonderful WikiTreer and person. I hope to complete his to-do lists for the US Black Heritage Project, of which he was an early member.
  • I am learning Hebrew, but do not know much beyond letters and names. I intend to become conversant. I know enough Korean to add dates, names and fix place names; I am not continuing to study Korean at this time. French…. I learned it for many years, lived in Paris briefly, and was near-fluent… now I’d say I’m conversant. I need to brush up, don’t want to lose what I have!

DNA

Just for fun, from Ancestry.com .... update from Summer 2022....

Scotland: 51%
England & NW Europe: 36%
Sweden & Denmark: 6%
Wales: 5%
Ireland: 2%

(from 2021 to 2022 update- "lost" 8% Germanic Europe and 1% Nigeria)

Community analysis by Ancestry.com:

  • Early Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and East Texas Settlers
    • Southwestern MS, LA & Deep East Texas
  • Western Gulf States Settlers
    • East Louisiana and West Mississippi, Delta Regions
    • Franklin & Lincoln County, Mississippi area settlers

I am so glad that you will be working with me on PATH. However, I live on the Georgia coast and Ian is heading my way. Hopefully I can get work a little on this tomorrow but not sure. It is to hit us on Friday and we have to get ready tomorrow. Hopefully we will not evacuate. If you are from Texas you are very familiar with hurricanes and what they might entail, like power outages. Anyway, I am very committed to the training and will get back in touch asap.

I started but I started on the wrong profile. I changed some stuff on yours to mine. When I realized I tried to fix it but not sure I did.

Hi, you indicated that I made a mistake of Moll Clack-3541. I'm not sure what the mistake is. I have done many profiles in this category and may have made the same mistake in them as well. Thanks.

Nice dog, by the way.

Hi Claudia, there was no mistake, you did great! You added the category, which tells the USBH checklist team that there is a new profile to check out. We then replace that general category with more specific categories, like Needs Connection or Needs Slave Owned, etc.
Oh, thanks about the pup! We are now both a few years older, but both still here :)
Thanks for all your hard work during the June challenge!

Hello I was wondering if you can take a look at me 2nd Great Grandmother's Profile Turner-37921 and let me know how I can improve it , or if I'm missing key point, and what needs to be added or removed. Thanks in advance.

Also I want to thanks you for all the hard work you're doing. You've definitely make a huge impact of Wikitree for people of color.

Hi, How’s it goin’? Im just doing a weekly check-in with my teammates for the Indexers group.

I’ve done a few updates and added a few links to the page and We were approved as an actual project under the US Projects list.

I was wondering if you are tracking your numbers? I’d love to be able to add your numbers to the teampage. Oh we have a cool sticker now that links the page to your profile.

Dear Elaine,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing its first annual check-in with our project members. We are in the process of transitioning to a team structure. There will be three participant PIP Teams to start -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. There is also the Voyage Team who guide new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team. Please let us know which team(s) you would like to participate in.

We would also like to invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. (When you request to join our GoogleGroup, please be sure to include your Wiki ID). You will find more information on the GoogleGroup.

We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project and WikiTree. The Project’s mission is to:

Make profiles beautiful! We clean up messy biography sections and sources, and try to set standards for attractive, useful, and well-written biographies, starting with those we manage.

We know you’re working on profiles *smile* We would like to hear about successes you’ve had toward the Project’s goals. We would also appreciate any feedback you might have to help us improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or privately via private message to either of us.

Sincerely,

Debi Hoag and Robin Shaules Co-Leaders, Profile Improvement Project

Hi,

The Germany Project Leaders are doing their semi-annual check-in with all project members and we want to verify that you’re still interested in being a member of the Project. Please respond by private message and let me know.

REMINDERS: (1) We use Google Groups for project collaboration and you aren’t yet a member of the group, please submit a join request here (make sure to add your name/WikiTree ID to the request). (2) I see you've added German_Roots (our old project name) to your G2G tags, you should also add GERMANY to your followed G2G tags so you don't miss any discussions in G2G (see: Help:Tags#How_to_follow_tags Help:Tags).

Are you currently working with one of our Sub-projects or Teams? If not, take a look at our main Project page for a full list. We recently launched a new Profile Improvement Team and are seeking new team members. Let me know if you’re interested.

We really appreciate your contributions on WikiTree, and thank you for all your hard work. If you have any questions, please ask. We would also love to hear any feedback you may have for the project.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

I added a the father for Betsy Weatherall (Jones-38771), wife of John Weatherall and added a link to her profile for Rev Pension with family information in it. Also tagged her in an image of an article regarding the Jones family. Hope you don't mind. If you think this is incorrect I will remove the references.

Thanks! Tammy
