|OMG, It Does Happen!|
Lines borrowed from others:
My mother and uncle (her brother) started researching our family history, and since her passing, I have picked up the mantle, and am pursuing it! My goal is to leave something here on WikiTree, built on facts and good sources, that my grandchildren can rely on and enjoy!
I am a descendant of two different Maupin 3g grandfathers, which spurred my interest in their line. So, I am coordinating the Maupin Name Study, click here to check it out! The ancestor of most (if not all) Maupins in America is Gabriel Maupin who left France because of religious persecution, thus he is classified as a Huguenot.
|Rhoda Maupin's Photo Album|
A significant addition to that project is: 3G Grandma Rhoda (Holt) Maupin's Photo Album. I am honored to have inherited this late nineteenth century photo album and am working to identify as many of the photos as possible, and to integrate the contents into our genealogical understanding of her family and times. It may be found as part of the Maupin Name Study under the heading: Maupin Treasures.
A somewhat whimsical side project is to keep track of the number of Maupin cousins who married. It is more common than one would think!
As they are discovered, they are logged on this page of Maupin Cousins Who Married.
I have noticed that some of my distant DNA cousins are black! I would love to find out how we are related! But, African-American genealogy can be especially challenging for many reasons. So, I am helping the US Black Heritage project add profiles of black Americans into WikiTree. Many of those I work on are members of my wife's family.
As a sub-project of the Black Heritage Project, I am working to complete the addition of all 100 Voices from Digital Harrisburg to WikiTree!

I am descended from 18 of the Jamestown Society Qualifying Ancestors, including:
My sixth great grandmother, Mary (Osborne) King, is a product of the "Great Puritan Migration." All four of her great grandfathers immigrated from England between 1621 and 1640:
So far, it seems I am not descended from any Mayflower passenger. However I am related to:

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing its first annual check-in with our project members. Please review the following and let us know if you are content where we have placed you or would like to be more involved.
We are in the process of transitioning to a team structure. There will be three participant PIP Teams to start -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. There is also the Voyage Team which guides new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team.
You're currently identified as a member of the Biography Team Level 1, working on profiles from your own watchlist and whatever else you find. Biography Teams Levels 2 and 3 will work on designated profiles for notables (Level 3) and everyday people (Level 2). Please let us know if you would like to help with a higher-level Bio Team or one of the other Teams.
We would also like to invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. If you request to join our GoogleGroup, please be sure to include your Wiki ID. Neither is required; we also use the Profile_Improvement tag in G2G for Project announcements.
We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project and WikiTree. The Project’s mission is to:
We know you’re working on profiles *smile* We would like to hear about successes you’ve had toward the Project’s goals. We would also appreciate any feedback you might have to help us improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or privately via private message to either of us.

Thank you for your participation in October 2020’s Source-a-thon. Your contributions helped us to clear over 57,000 profiles that needed sourcing. This makes our Shared Tree all that much better.
Keep up the great work!

As you have been a member of WikiTree for a few weeks now I thought I would check in to see how you are getting on with the site.
Has the New Member How-To been helpful or left you with any questions?
I am here to help with any problems or queries you may have. Just click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page or send me a private message.
Sometimes links don't work in emails. If that's happened to you, check the public comments on your profile. The links will work from there.

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!
Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.
Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or special event. Read the goals and tasks of the project and join if it is a good fit.
Let me know if you have trouble finding projects which fit your focus. Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.
