So in the last few weeks, I've been inundated with thousands of emails from potential cousins interested in coming to the Global Family Reunion. As you can imagine, I was a tad overwhelmed. So I've brought on an excellent genealogist named Eowyn Langholf to help me wade through the emails and organize them and put them on a spreadsheet.
She's got her own Geni account at http://www.geni.com/people/Eowyn-Langholf-GFR-Cousin-Coordinator/60...
She'll be helping with research on Geni as well. She's great to work with -- full of ideas and enthusiasm. Welcome to the team Eowyn!
I've initiated the merge on the profiles, but since they're currently in isolated trees (not yet part of the WFT), you'll have to accept the requests - perhaps from multiple accounts. If you want to delete any of those trees due to not knowing the account info, I can pass that along to customer service.

Welcome cousin Eowyn!
Eowyn's 22nd cousin 3x removed :)
11th cousin twice removed (for now) -- welcome! :)
Eowyn, let us know whatever help you might need (if any!) getting used to the nuances of Geni. :) If you follow a bunch of curators, you'll pretty much always see one of us in the "on-line now" box and can poke us for help.
I recently started collaborating with another Geni user here in Hobart. Funnily enough she actually works on the floor below me! We are going to get together and brainstorm some ideas on how to drum up some more attention and look at organising some sort of event/gathering (depending on interest) to view the webcast since neither of us are likely going to be able to make it in person.
