I have completed reviewing the 1678 Census for reference entries on profiles of all persons listed! It took a bit longer than I thought it would, and required some attention to detail, but it's finished and I'm proud of it!  :)

Congratulations Julia on a job well done. We really appreciate your hard work, your perseverance and your attention to detail. Do you have another project in mind concerning Acadians?
posted by Gisèle Cormier
Not immediately. I want to get back to working on my own tree, for a bit. But I'll be available in the future.

Julia, I was seeing you go through those profiles, and am very grateful to you for the careful attention to detail and excellent citation entries. And you should be proud of your work. To me, that was a particularly difficult one because of its structure. I updated our census page - take a look

Hi! I'm new to the project. I started by doing a biography of a profile ( I wasn't sure if that was satisfactory enough to remove the "needs a biography" tag. Thanks.

If it's okay, I'll do them all in a minute or so; it's a script that does it. Really easy ;P

posted by Ken Tremblay
HI, Ken, that is very cool! Nicely laid out. At first I though you might be using the Bio Builder, but I see the format is somewhat different. Did you write that script yourself? One question, we don't normally put siblings in the biography. Could that section be skipped?

Best, Cindy

posted by Cindy (Bourque) Cooper
I like the layout but I would delete the redundant gedcom entries if it were me doing it. If there is something new, then weave it into your new biography. Like after a merge, we want only one biography and it should be in the same style throughout. Thanks! Share your script?
posted by Jacqueline Girouard
I don't even know what gedcom entries are. Sorry. I have about a year of experience, but I don't know much lingo. (See reply above for the script availability)
posted by Ken Tremblay
I didn't do it, it's available to anyone who wants to download it. It's a Google Chrome add-on that a wikitreer scripted. It also translates in French and highlights the profile's picture in green if the person is an ancestor of yours (both suggested by me) and it gets info automatically from other sites, among other cool stuff.

It's called Auto WikiTree Tables.

I can't really modify it to sratch the siblings, but I can certainly easily erase them afterwards. It takes a second.

So, should I remove them from the "Needs a biography" after? I'm waiting before doing the other ones. I don't want to come back to each one of them after.


posted by Ken Tremblay
Hi, Ken, I would just delete those siblings after then. What Jackie mentions are the entries that say = Marriage = then marriage info underneath. They often have = Name = and other events. I usually look at those and erase them if they are supported in the biography and if they don't have sources. If they do have a source, then I leave them so the source will be linked to the info. Or if you have a little extra time, I will check that source and sometimes move the inline reference to the fact in the newly created biography. This is a simple biography with no ged stuff. In the case of Arseneau-22, all those GED's are supported by the same souce - a good one - Stephen White. You could just leave that in the sources section and delete all the GED entries. Actually I will do it so you can see what I mean. A little touching up after the app does the main work. I also removed the tildes as a year entry with no other specific date is already an estimate. What do you think about doing that? Cindy

posted by Cindy (Bourque) Cooper
Oops! While preparing an answer for Ken, and before seeing your comment , I edited the Arseneau profile. You can add the final touch, Cindy. I also removed the category Acadia needs biography and you can do the same Ken when you create one. For more information on editing GEDCOM created biographies: . Thanks for your help Ken and for introducing us to Auto WikiTree Tables. I've installed it.
posted by Gisèle Cormier
LOL I saw that. You did fine and we can leave Ken with that as a good example. Thanks Ken - I hope we didn't have too many cooks in the kitchen! Cindy

I created a FB group for the descendants of Joseph Gueguen, his wives and children and siblings. There is over 340 distant (some close) cousins in the group.

Hi there,

I just sort of dove in and uploaded a tree from my deceased friend. Her mother did all the research. It seems to be impacted the Robichaud family tree the most. Before I do anymore damage, can I hand the reins over to someone else? I don't want to be the profile manager as I have no knowledge of Acadian or French Canadian family history. I downloaded the gedcom and have been trying to merge and correct (gulp!).

Elizabeth, are you having trouble with some particular aspect of it? What profiles are impacted?
posted by Cindy (Bourque) Cooper
I have dates where the owner of the Robichaud family tree doesn't but I can't verify the dates are accurate. The owner is Bobby Robichaud. I didn't want to continue because of that. I don't know how reliable the research is because it isn't mine. I just didn't want the research to go to waste.
I am a co-manager of Montet-21 and the following error is generated for it: "935 Unpaired Project Account and ProjectBox". I did not add the project boxes and I don't know anything about them; therefore I am unable to correct the error. Thanks.

HI, Orin, the Acadians project is correctly on the profile, so it is the Louisiana Family project that would need to be added. I forwarded it to Joyce Rivet who project manager for that project. Thanks for letting us know.
posted by Cindy (Bourque) Cooper
Hi Orin, Usually for profiles that were involved in the forced migration of Acadians to Louisiana, both the Acadians and Louisiana projects are added as co-managers. This step for the Louisiana project was only half-done on Montet-21, which I have now corrected. Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention!
Ales will run the program to assign them very soon and then the errors will get better until more profiles are made! I'll do it if it's just a few, but there are too many to do manually right now. For any people who see these errors on their suggestions list, you can pass over them because the project will have them taken care of periodically.
