Secret Santa
Carol gifted some WikiTree kindness during the 2018 Secret Santa Swap!

I was inspired by a TV program to start looking at my family history in 1979. My grandfather visited me shortly after this (a rare occurrence as he lived in Lancashire and I was in Kent), and I innocently asked questions about his parents and upbringing. The questions were answered hesitantly and rather vaguely, he seemed very uncomfortable and the subject was quickly dropped.

After investing in my first few BMD certificates, and going down a few blind alleys, I made the discovery that my grandfather's parents had never married, a fact that he obviously knew and was very sensitive about. And the few answers that he'd supplied to my questions were an incredible work of fiction. By then I was well and truly hooked into discovering the truth, but I never mentioned any of my findings to my grandfather. He did however send me a photo of his father, for which I was extremely grateful.

Hi Carol

Well, it was a fun weekend, we hope you enjoyed yourself. Thank you for joining us. It is appreciated. The combined score for our teams was a fab 9,296 up 419 on last year, well done. The total overall figure was 56,972 profiles sourced.

Thanks again for this weekend, we look forward to working with you again

hi carol,

thank you for what you have been doing with my family, i do realise that i am not the best typist. regards brenda

Hi! Thanks for the changes to William Billingsley's profile (I wasn't sure what "Com Salop, Shrops" actually meant). I can see "Shrops" = Shropshire, but curious why you deleted "Salop" and left "Com". What does "Com" mean?

Hi! I noticed your recent edit to Bruce-2698. I had adopted the profile because WikiTree showed him to be a lineal ancestor, which it no longer does, so I've "unadopted" him. Thought I would let you know in case you were interested in adopting the profile.

Cheers, Liz

Hi Liz,

I've been amending all profiles with Rutlandshire to say Rutland, so won't be adopting Bernard Bruce, but thanks for letting me know. Am hoping this exercise will help with connecting as all the profiles will now be in the same county.

Best wishes, Carol

Hi Carol!

I would like to thank you for all your contributions towards the goals of the England Project during the past six months. We've achieved a huge amount during this period and we couldn't have done it without you and our other project members.

As the England Project Leaders, we are completing our six monthly check-in with all project members.

Are you happy to stay in your current project team/s? Which team/s are you most active in? Are there other teams you would like to join or become more active in?

Also, do you have any feedback on what the project is doing well and anything we could do better in the future?

Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks!

Ian, England Project Leader

Hi Carol

Received your request to merge Mary Ann, I’m just starting with Wiki Tree so I may be wrong. Shouldn’t Mary Ann’s current last name be Jackson not Owen. Rebecca

Hi Carol

Wishing you a Happy and prosperous New Year. Thank you for all the work you have done to improve the English profiles on wikitree.

Just checking in with you to ask if you wish to remain a member of the England Data Doctor Team. Appreciate it if you could let me know

Hi Carol,

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,

Amy, Joan & Lizzie.
