Background and General Interests

I presently live on the Olympic Peninsula in the State of Washington, USA, and can be reached there (pacific standard time zone) when I am not time-traveling to medieval Scotland and Ireland in search of primary sources for WikiTree profiles. My home is in a small coastal town known for its legendary wooden boat builders, funky artists, and breath-taking mountain views.

In my spare time I love hiking in the woods and on the beach; traveling to sacred places all over the world; growing lots of lavender and rosemary around my small cottage; reading; listening to music; baking pies; and staring at the flames in my fireplace.

Married to a man who for the last twenty years of his career was a college president, so I have spent a lot of my life living on campuses: engaged in discussions on a wide range of topics, meeting interesting people, and forming friendships with persons from around the globe. Genealogy has been a life-long interest, but it hasn't been until retirement that I have been able to actively pursue it.


Current ethnicity estimate from Ancestry:

  • 43% England & Northwestern Europe
  • 41% Scotland
  • 9% Germanic Europe
  • 4% Sweden & Denmark

Hi Jen,

On behalf of the England Project, I would like to thank you for all your contributions towards the project's goals over the past year. Every English profile we improve helps!

The England Project Leaders are currently doing our six-monthly check-in with all project members.

Are you happy to with your current project team choices? Are there other teams you would like to join or become more active in?

We also welcome any feedback on things you would like to see the project do more of in the future.

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

Many thanks!

Joan, England Project Leader

Hi, Jen. I have no idea how to participate in this group. I joined and am still interested but don't know how it works, what it does or how to participate.
Oh Jen thank you so much for messaging me! I am interested yes yes yes in the Ireland project. I cannot write more now because I'm beginning my work stretch for the next 6 days (I'm a nurse and its my long stretch). But please know that I will be writing more next week. I have "Wikitree" plastered all over my calendar on my first day off. thanks again!

Hi Jen,

I have not been involved with the Ireland Project yet. I may want to join in the future as I begin to work on my mother's tree more deeply. Thanks for checking in.

Hi Jen, at present I am in two groups, the main one is the Donegal group, who do not not have had a project.

The second one - ireland - was just a catchment group for me from the Donegal group. I do and have helped numerous people with their trees and descendants and ancestors, as I have over 36,000 people on a linked Donegal tree - which is strictly private, I have had issues with copies taken by complete strangers and appearing on various Websites with INCORRECT information. I am not interested in badges or thank yous, I simply help if I can. I do take exception that you have emailed re my name being withdrawn from the groups, especially when the donegal group does not and has never had a project, perhaps a little more research on your part might help. If it makes you feel better go ahead, it still will not stop me helping out.

Hi Jen,

I have not been involved with the Irish Project this past year. You might want to take me off until I can get back to it.

Thanks so much for your email and all the work you are doing for the Irish Project!!

If you're a member of the Google Group,* then you've heard that the Magna Carta Project has retired the Gateway Guardian initiative. Would you delete or replace your Gateway Guardian sticker please?

WikiTree has two relatively new stickers - Template:Relationship_Sticker and Template:Connection Sticker - that you might want to use if you're related to or connected to the Gateway. There's also the Template:Descendant sticker that you can use. To see tailored coding for these stickers (e.g., with the Magna Carta Project logo), please see Space: Magna Carta Stickers#sticker.

Thanks! Liz

* If you're not and would like to be, please send a request to!forum/wikitreemagnacarta (be sure to include your WikiTree ID; the Google Group is no longer "Project members only", but it is restricted to WikiTree members).

Hello fellow Co-Leader

It's time for our annual Scotland Project check-in!

This year we are hoping to learn what our membership would like to accomplish over the next 12 months. In case you aren't aware, this year is WikiTree's ""Year of Connections"" and the Project's leadership would like to contribute to this in as many ways as possible.

We would appreciate it if you would share your thoughts and ideas with us on how we can accomplish this goal. We would also appreciate it if you would provide some feedback on our existing goals, including:

  • If you have not yet signed up to help on one of the project's teams, which team(s) would you be interested in joining?
  • How often should we provide a Project Newsletter?
  • Have you participated in the Tartan Trail? If not, is this something you'd be interested in doing?
  • Do you have a question(s) that we could add to a Frequently Asked Questions page?
  • Any suggestions or ideas you have on ways to improve the Scotland Project in general

We continue to communicate with our Project members via Google Group (official) and Discord (unofficial), as well as G2G. You may also reach out to any of the Project leaders via WikiTree's internal messaging system at any time.

Thank you for all you do to help the Scotland Project become a knowledge hub for Scottish genealogical research! We wish you all the best in 2022!

Sincerely, Amy Gilpin on behalf of the Scotland Project Leaders

Hi Jen!

Thanks for contributing to Puritan Great Migration profiles over the last six months. Every little bit helps, so please keep those edits coming!

Like all WikiTree projects we check in with team members twice per year and it's that time again. Please respond within the next two weeks to let me know:

  1. If you'd like to continue as a PGM project team member
  2. If you're happy with the team you're on (Research and/or Profile Improvement) or if you'd like to make a change
  3. Optionally, what you like since the reboot back in May or what you think could be improved. This could be something about Discord, or Google Groups, or managed profile spreadsheets, or challenge participation or really anything. If you like everything the way it is, you can let me know that too :)

If you'd like to tell me about a particular project or family you're working on, I'd love to hear about that as well.

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

Many thanks!

Hi Jen!

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!

Hi Jen,

I am researching Robert Blott who Died in Boston, MA in 1665. You have his father as Robert also and there is a reference to father Robert’s will. In a post about the will you indicated that Robert had a brother Thomas. I was wondering if the will indicated where this brother Thomas was from. I am hoping it might be Thomas Blott from Branwell All Saints, Northampton Thank you Bob Cronin

posted by Robert Cronin
Hi Robert,

It appears the TAG article which is cited does not provide a transcription of the will of Robert Blott (father of the emigrant) but gives FHL film #088.020, item 1, as the place where the will can be found. Without looking at it, there is no way to know if it contains information which would further identify Thomas. However, Northampton is almost thirty miles from where the family lived which was a considerable distance in that time. You'll need to find a reliable source which connects your Thomas with this family. Jen

We want to thank you very much for your participation in this weekend's Clean-a-thon! Your 1126 contributions helped bring our team to almost 7000 corrections made, which is an amazing number for a small team. As a token of thanks for helping our team, please feel free to add this participation sticker to your profile (as always, below the Biography line). You'll need to add curly brackets/braces { like these, but doubled } around the following template:
Clean-a-Thon|team=Team Twisted Thistles|year=2021|suggestions=1126

If you enjoyed working to make repairs like these, please consider joining the Data Doctors Project, a group of members who work on these improvements on an ongoing basis.

Hi Jen!

Thank you for the great work you are doing here and for your contribution in helping me find some of my Scottish ancestors. I am brand spanking new to wikitree and hoped that it would be possible to get a "sticker" so I can link myself to Janet Douglas. If not of course I understand. Any tips on how to keep track of or save those matches I find?

Blessed Be!!!

Hi Jen,

Thank you so much for all your contributions to WikiTree in the last six months, and especially to the Wales Project. It’s been wonderful to have you as part of the team as we work together to increase the quality and quantity of Welsh Profiles.

You don’t seem to have selected which team(s) you would like to be on. Please have a look at the project page: and let me know your choices so I can introduce you to your Team Leader(s). Do you have any questions? What can we do to support you? Do you want to continue in the Wales Project moving forwards?

Please can you also private message me your e-mail so I can add you to the Google group.

I see you’re not currently on the Discord server. You’d be very welcome to join us where we have live text and voice conversations which really helps with collaboration. Just let me know and I can send you an invitation.

I look forward to hearing back from you with all the above.

Thanks once again,

Olivia, Project Coordinator for Wales :-)

It’s time for a Project check-in!

Scotland Project Leaders check in with you at least once a year to see how you are doing. With the changes happening around the world, we understand that life is hectic right now.

What are you planning to work on for the Scotland Project this year? Are you happy with the team(s) you part of, or would you like to make some changes?

This time round, we’re also looking for feedback on the use of Google Group and Discord. Do you use one or both of these? If you don’t use either of them, what is the best way to ensure you receive Project communications? If you would like to join us on Google Group or Discord, let us know in your response.

Hi Jen,

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.

Your England Leaders are completing the six monthly check in with all team members. Thank you for your work on English Profiles and your work in the Yorkshire and Managed Profiles teams.

These are unprecedented and difficult times, and we understand as Project Leaders that your situation may have changed somewhat in the last few months.

Please let me know if you are happy with your current role and team choice, or if you wish to do something additional or different. Thank you again on behalf of all the Project Leaders for everything you do.

Hi Jen,

On behalf of the England Leaders, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your contributions towards the project in the past six months as a Team Member for Yorkshire and Managed Profiles. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.

Are you happy to stay in your current teams and the project as a whole? Are there any other teams you'd like to join? What are we doing well, and what would you like to see us doing differently moving forwards?

Jen, If you want to update Rebecca Tracy, go for it! If you'd like to work on the profile for Rebecca who used to be Ruth, before she's merged, I'll have zero objection. When she gets merged then all your nice work will get moved over. A few sources were mentioned on the husband's profile that might help.
posted by Bobbie (Madison) Hall
Hi Jen, I adopted the "Ruth" wife, and made her into another Rebecca in hopes that the PMs of the real Rebecca will more quickly accept the merge. But, it appears that none of them are particularly active, so we may need to wait out the 30 days. As they say: "patience, grasshopper"  ;) Thanks for posting your comment on William's profile, as that more likely to be noticed. Good work!

Hi Jen,

I'm a big Ancestry user also and I find it a drag to go and find Family Search records so that others (without an Ancestry subscription) can see the source docs.

Ancestry lets you share the record so that everyone can see it. If it is a record, click the "share" button. I usually select Twitter and a popup box appears. Close this box and a second box appears. Grab this link and put it in your source. If looking at an image, click the tool icon (hammer and a wrench) and click the share button and follow the same procedure.

I put one on this profile as an example:

William Akins (1806)

Of course, its totaly optional but some day, if you let your subscription lapse, you'll thank yourself for it ;-)
