Hi Dave,

These are unprecedented and difficult times, and we understand as Project Leaders that your situation may have changed somewhat in the last few months. What we are all able to/ wish to contribute on Wikitree has changed. Please let me know if you are happy with your current role and team choice or if you wish to do something additional or different. Thank you again on behalf of all the project leaders for everything you do.


Hi there, Dave!

Thanks so very much for your participation in the spring Clean-a-thon! Every suggestion you cleared (over 600!) made our Tree that much better. The WikiTree community appreciates YOU!

Hi Dave

I am a Welburn descendant of Joseph Welburn 1834/1916 via I hate to say this his Mistress Sarah Peacock Sollitt. Sarah was born 1847 in Bugthorpe and died 1916 Guisborough. Sarah married a William Sollitt and they also lived at Fridaythorpe though I think Sarah may have met Joseph much younger, one of her aunts or uncles married a Welburn and they may have met at family dos. So Sarah and William had 7 children William, Elizabeth Hannah Maria, Margaret and Mary Ann , William the husband died in 1875 so Sarah ended up having children with Joseph, Harriet 1878 and Louisa 1880. Though I think Sarah ran off and ended up in the work house, Joseph went after her and took her out and helped Sarah start a business in taking people's washing in. The other three children were Ernest 1883, Ada 1887, and Herbert 1890. DNA supports this with my father on My heritage and ancestry, I was told by a family member in Yorkshire but at that time we had no proof until a few days ago. So you have a new branch, I'm not too sure if you want to know the other part because of the fact we're from an affair. Look forward to hearing from you. My father is on ancestry Ivanstebbings92

Hi Dave,

On behalf of the England Leaders, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your contributions towards the project in the past six months as a Team Member for Yorkshire. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.

Are you happy to stay in your current team and the project as a whole? Are there any other teams you'd like to join? What are we doing well, and what would you like to see us doing differently moving forwards?

Please respond to this message via e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,

Susie, England Project Leader :-)

Hi Dave,

I have more Welburns to enter. My Stepfather is Keith G Welburn a descendant of Thomas Welburn who had 3 sons that married 3 Darlison daughters. They have a Welburn/Darlison reunion every year and my mother has a notebook where they kept track of all the births and deaths that had taken place in the previous years. They also had a handwritten story about the journey that Thomas had made to get to Michigan after he came to America. He had apparently worked on the Erie Canal as it was being dug. I'll have to ask about it again. Keith turned 90 this year and is always interested in what I find about the Welburn family

David I have merged the 2 Jane Roslings but not cleaned up the profile yet. I have Cox family elsewhere in the tree and he is related via this line to the Gadsbys. Lots of the family in this area become interconnected with the marriages to others in the neighbouring villages.
