So where are we on this Project? I don't see any posts since the Big Crash, lol! Should we still consider this an active Project?
I am still committed to the Alden-mess, I think that one's going to be long-term. Other than that, please point me in the direction you would have me go - after spending the last six weeks away, I'm loaded and ready to GO! ;)
Would you consider taking on the Mayflower passengers? There were only 21 of them they're amazingly popular for some reason. Should be plenty helpful information in the project
Erica "the Disconnectrix" Howton Sure, I'm a sucker for lost causes! lol I've been absolutely stunned at the number of merges that happen with the John and Priscilla Alden profiles, wowie.
Do I need to check with the various curators, or should I just dive in? I don't want to step on toes...
I've been busy for the most part elsewhere but I did add six profiles (Holmes, Eastman, Huxley, Harvey, Luther, Gates) to the project so I figure I "owe" to the project a time commitment of six profiles to cleanup:)
I'm not sure if I'll take on those particular six or if I'll pick six that have been ignored in the project for a longer period of time.
Erica "the Disconnectrix" Howton Oh, 'joy in the morning' is right! That's FANTASTIC!
Erica "the Disconnectrix" Howton "who is Charlesmange?" :)
I think that we can relate to John and Priscilla, so we get our tree to them, then say "who cares"...
At least I did that before Geni, and actually still do to some extent. Would much rather work on my personal tree in the last 5-6 generations rather than my 21st grandparents.
I'm stuck on the migrant generations. I keep expecting to move forward or backwards in history but here I am on Pilgrims. Again.
Dont you love iPad typos, I sure do. I was referring to Mangy Charles, AKA Chuckles, AKA Charlesmagne. He's the gold standard for measuring tree correctness, as most of the Western World can claim a descent, mathematically.
Ah...I thought you meant Charlemagne!
I, too, am stuck on migrant generations, but not the same one's as you. My gg grandfather and three of his brothers came to the states in the late 1850's, and two joined the Civil War. We have solid leads on two of the brothers descendants (my cousin-grandparents), some what solid on a third, and almost non-existent info on the fourth, but HAVE found family left in their home town in France!!!

Isaac Allerton, "Mayflower" Passenger is D-O-N-E!!! What a job, ye gads. Please make any corrections you see fit and then lock that sucker as fast as you can cause I never want to have to deal with him again! lolol
'Scuse my whining, please! I was just taken aback at the mess, wowie!
Learned a lot, though... ;)
Here's a funny one for you - Isaac Allerton's About Me says he was one of the 'under-takers of the Plymouth Colony's London debt' because he was one of the relatively wealthy colonists who decided to pay off the debt owed in London (so that they would then get any profits from the colony). So guess what I found under his occupation?
Someone had listed him as an 'undertaker'... /lol
