Wiki Stats - End June 2017

The total number of pages in the Wiki (as at 1 July 2017) now stands at 6950 (previously 6894, 6857, 6832) an increase of 56 pages during the month.     Of these 1336 pages (was 1336, 1332, 1328) begin with a number and are most probably a date related gleaning.     We currently have 2874 wiki pages categorised as "People", of which 2450 begin with the letter "R".

Most of the new pages created in June were as a direct consequence of Beverly's article "Early Reeves' Families in Colonial America that we first mentioned last month. FamilyOf pages have now been added for the vast majority of the patriachs Beverly mentioned. The significant exception is location 15, where five of the seven individuals named have no confirmed family or Person Pages do not exist in TRP for any of their descendants.

TRP Users

We ended June 2017 with 285 user accounts registered in TRP, one less than at the end of May. Whilst we've had a number of individual complete our "Join Us" form during the month, nobody has yet completed the next step in registration. During the month, as part of the occasional housekeeping we undertake, one user account which had been created but then never activated was removed.

Reeves DNA Project Update

In April we welcomed six new members to the project; Becky Perkins, Toby Reeves, Glenda McNamara, Raymond McNamara, Karl Rainhold and Virginia Beach Hulviej. The month of May was less busy with just one new member; Rebecca McBurney. During June we saw four request for membership, two of which have been accepted, but the requesters have not yet activated their membership and one has yet to respond to our request for clarification of their Reeves interest.

During the quarter we’ve seen no Y-DNA results for new members. In the last few days of June we have seen notifications for several DNA Group 10 members with a strong match to an individual who is not yet part our project. We hope he’ll want to join us and share information about his family.

Whilst there might not be much to report by way of new DNA results, it good to see the Activity Feed hasn’t been inactive.
