Hi ! My Wiki ID is Oltmann-8. I am the Profile Manager for my family's Blacksher/Blackshaw genealogy and their Scottish Gaelic ancestors born in Chester, England, including two ancestor profiles I wish to add to complete the family lineage as listed in "Visitations of Cheshire, 1613" "Harlean MS 1535" Pedigree by Norroy King of Arms, and also listed in "Blacksheariana", copyright 1954, by Perry Lynnfield Blackshear, Sr. I posted an answer to the England Project so that I can add the two ancestors, whose names are: "Robart Blackshaw, of Withington, born about 1530, married about 1555, son of; John Blackshaw, of Withington, community of Chester, England, born about 1505, married about 1529" as quoted from both resources listed. John Blackshaw, born about 1505, is the direct ancestor of my husband who is still living--we've been married 34 years & have one wonderful son; we collaborate & do research together. I do extensive research; gather, buy, and read resource books & materials, type, and teach--because that is my expertise. Our goal is to link John Blackshaw to his Gaelic & other ancestors in Scotland, ever exploring fascinating ancestors from the Medieval Era and antiquity, including the name "Blackshaw" found at Caerlaverock Castle in Scotland, part of whose estate is currently owned by the Maxwells. I am so excited to finally communicate with you, Maria Maxwell. I know there is a connection & I think I've found the link after years of personal, intensive & immersive research. I'm not searching for glory or fame, only to know the truth and be able to pass along this knowledge to my only son before my day arrives to meet the face of God. I would be happy to share what I've already learned & intend on adding all of my resources and biographies of our families--one at a time. Blackshaw/Blacksher ancestors were travelers for sure: From Ireland to Scotland, marrying daughters of French Knights in Chester, England; to New Jersey, USA; to Delaware, to North Carolina, to Tennessee, to Missouri; and during WWII as an M.P. (Military Policeman) to Normandy, France, and Belgium--being awarded directly by the Prince Regent himself; and afterwards--across the nation to Washington state--where we currently live today. Considering following in their footsteps--Nova Scotia looks like a fascinating place to live !
