The Connect-a-Thon was fun, we hope you enjoyed yourself and are recovering. Thank you for helping, it is appreciated.

Our teams did really well. Our big Mighty Oaks Team came first overall, and our Little Mighty Oak Branches Team was in the top 5 on the Normalised Score. The combined score of our two teams was 11,109. A total of was 95,575 new profiles added by all during the thon.

The next Thon, towards the end of the year will be a Source-a-Thon, And watch G2G for the WikiTree Games sometime in August.

Thanks again for a great weekend, we look forward to working with you again soon.

Hi Dave

We are delighted to announce a new Profile Improvements Team namely the England Tangled Families Team which will be formed by merging the Arborists, Gedcoms and Unknown Teams,

As we know tangled families are created from old GEDCOM’s which cover many generations resulting in the need to merge profiles and having to disconnect others together with finding unknown spouses and family members.

The merging of the existing three teams into one exciting new team will hopefully reduce duplications and definitely will increase collaboration between you our experienced and dedicated members.

Team Leader for the England Tangled Families Team will be Fran Weidman who has agreed to manage the team bringing her excellent knowledge and experience from creating and managing the Unknowns Team together with Fran’s five year membership of the England Project.

Currently as a member of one or more of the named teams we are asking you to join our new amalgamated Tangled Families Team and letting us know by contacting Joan Williams or Malc Rowlands through Discord Messaging, England Project Google Group or Private WT Message if you want to join our new team.

Kind regards

Joan and Malc

Hi Dave,

We all did a great job this weekend, thank you, a job well done. The grand total for the event was 76,995 profiles created. The Mighty Oaks contributed 6,258 of those.

If you open up your contribution list you can review your work and possibly do some tidying up, before you orphan the profiles ;)

Thanks again for this weekend, you rock!


Joan, Janet, Maddy and Fran

Dear Dave,

Thanks for your many minor corrections to profiles in my watchlist. I am slow in getting round to these minor improvements because the watchlist is approaching 5000 profiles. You are stimulating me to make other improvements.

You are clearly fairly familiar with East Yorkshire geography, and i have rarely if ever needed to adust your changes.

The obvious traps are confusions between;

  • The two Gartons, Garton on the Wolds and Garton cum Grimston aka Garton in Holderness
  • The two Frodinghams, North Frodingham and the distant South Frodingham aka Frothingham
  • The two Shiptons, Shipton north of York and Shipton cum Thorpe, today Shiptonthorpe.
  • Several Thorpes, the most prominent being Thorpe by Shipton and Thorpe by Lockington.
  • Three Aldbros, with various spellings, two north of York near the A1 and Aldbrough in Holderness near the North Sea coast.

No doubt you can tell me of other potential confusions.

Best Wishes, Dave Horsley

Dave thank you so much for adding Harriet to the children of Mary and Samuel Needham! I know I'm super behind on adding all of their sources and children so I was so pleased to see someone else also taking an interest in the family. Would love to chat if you're connected to the family as much of my tree is on Ancestry (and hopefully soon on the Needham One Name Study). Concetta

Hi Amy/Amelia/Who you are now.

Thanks for the comment. Yes i am happy with being in the England Project. A great gang of folk. I am currently co-leader of the Yorkshire County Team, and also part of the Derbyshire Team. Sounds confusing, but we share common borders and the little devils will cross border just to make tracking them down a bit harder. Having said that, they also cross borders into Lancashire, Leicestershire, Cheshire, and many other counties. I am quite happy to stick where I am, and just keep plodding away at those records, wherever they might lead.

Kindest regards Dave.

Hi the connection finder says iam 37 degrees from you what dose that actually mean ? I carnt seam to understand certain things about dna
posted by [Living Walker]
Hi Kayleigh, The connection finder is not really about DNA. On WikiTree we aim to connect everyone to just 1 tree, rather than loads of individual trees, that mesh here and there. If you click on the connection link, it will show you the route through individual families, either through birth or marriage or siblings, how we are connected. It does not mean we are actually related, just that we are connected. It can be quite interesting to follow the route. Our connection goes all the way to Utah in America, and back again to the UK.

I hope this helps Dave

Thank you for joining the Mighty Oaks for the Clean-A-Thon and congratulations on your work during the CAT what an amazing result for the Mighty Oaks we added 32,841 . Altogether the teams fixed a grand total of 233,558 profiles suggestions. We hope you had fun while cleaning the tree.

Hi Dave,

It's that time of the year again: check-in time! As England Project Leaders, we like to check in with you every six months or so to see how things are progressing. Back in May, we didn't ask for a response due to the rapid emergence of Covid-19 because we understood that people's lives were changing rapidly. While we are still living in a Covid world, we do need to hear back from you this time around

First of all, how are you doing? What are you currently working on? Are you happy with the team(s) you're in, or would you like to change things up?

Secondly, we're looking for some feedback on the Google Group and our Discord server. Do you use either or both of these? If you don't use either, why not? Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve participation and collaboration, either generally or for you personally?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Lizzie, Amy, Joan

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,

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
