Although no direct ancestors were members of the original ANZACs, there were a number of family members you fought in WW1. My father and other family members were also involved in WWII.
I was born in Australia, as were my parents, and 3 of my grandparents, but only 2 of my great grandparents. Different ancestors originally emigrated to New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia
New exciting mini-project of 5 generations of descendants of William the Conqueror and his wife Matilda
My maternal grandfather was born in Sydney, Australia, but both his parents were born in Cornwall in England and I have probably had the greatest success searching my Cornish ancestors.
Interested in cleaning up errors in profiles, particularly European Aristocrats
My known ancestry post about 1500 is almost totally English, principally Northumberland/Durham, Norfolk, Cornwall, Kent/Greater London
I've been interested in the genealogy of European Royal and noble families for over 40 years, and am currently the leader of the EuroAristo project
I've just started a Hawke One Name Study, focusing on Hawke's who originated from Cornwall, England
Developing an interest in medieval history, particularly of Europe, and also an understanding of the sources for this period.
Another county of England, where I have been able to trace some of my maternal ancestors
As part of the EuroAristo project and medieval history I have an interest in profiles from the pre-1500 period
I'm a Librarian by profession and finding sources and referencing them appropriately is a part of what I do.
Although most of my known ancestry is English, there are meant to be elements from Wales, Scotland and Ireland, but they are proving very elusive.

Hi John,

Regarding the proposed merge of DeChoiseul-Satinville-1 and De Choiseul-Stainville-2, I'm sorry, I've probably been too hasty in suggesting a LNAB. There's actually actually a whole line of various Choiseul profiles running the gamut of possible LNABs (none of them exactly follows recommendations). I'll try and reference them with decent secondary sources and that could give a clearer idea. Right now I believe just "Choiseul" would be the best option to keep them together.

Here is an example of a profile where I have run into problems.

I suspect that it will be resolved as I look through the books and sources. Any help would be appreciated.

There is a whole list of books I am using under research links on the Clan Douglas page. I am starting at the top and going through them all one by one. Eventually, each person will have many books and other sources attached to them, and any contradictory information with be compared. This is only the beginning, and undoubtedly there will be many issues to sort out as I continue.

Hi John,

Could you please look into the merge between Hohenzollern-116 and Brandenburg-Bayreuth-2 ? I can't decide which LNAB to use - it's clear enough Hohenzollern is the house name, but the rest of this person's family has Brandenburg, she is the only one with Brandenburg-Bayreuth. There's a set of Wettins to merge. Thanks for your help.

John, thanks for your comment on my error correcting of pre-1500 profiles. This is my first time volunteering to work on generic errors - and most profiles I am leaving with new sources and clearer relationships. Some, however, are unsourced, old (usually a pre 2012-GEDCOM) and really sloppy. As I am currenlty working 12th and 13th century profiles, if the person was not royal, then any 'marriage' or 'death' date is probably made up anyway. I am trying to leave a clear line of descent (which really is all that would have been recorded at the time). I leave a note for the PM, and I am sure if there is a sourced date, they can put it back in. Regards John
