Thanks for the suggestion on James Skelly-435. I added James Skelly next to Drumadoney in Kinallen.

Hi Tony, thanks for your interest in the profiles of my great-grandfather Robert Kennedy and my 2nd ggrandparents William and Mary Kennedy.

While I welcome any contributions to these open profiles, I'm curious if/what connection you have to them or if none how you came across them?

In particular I did note that you removed County Antrim from William and Mary, do you have any sources or information to suggest that either is not from County Antrim or that they are from elsewhere?

Also, while this is a potentially divisive issue, given that they are Ulster Scots and I am researching recent Scottish connections, I'm not sure how they identified or if Ireland_Native/Irish_Clans templates are most appropriate for them.

Hi Tony.

Pleased to meet you. I see you took over Alan Harbinson's profile and Uploads. He and I had talked, quite some time ago, and were fairly certain there was a familial connection, but never found one. I just thought I would introduce myself, incase there is a breakthrough. YIS. Tim.

You may have been hard at work getting connected to family members who are already here and adding those who were missing. You probably have at least a few profiles that you manage now.

There's a fast and easy way to access those profiles using the Watchlist. So, this week we're going to look at How to Manage Your Watchlist.

Please let one of us know if you have questions! Just ask.
