Followed Tags
John is a Wiki Genealogist following these tags:
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, any problems with the proposed merge of Malet-2 and Malet-128? Let me know of any concerns, but I see 128 is now disconnected from everyone perhaps in preparation? I can work on editing the finished product because I am working on this profile among others.

I see... I thought it would be all right when i saw the fiction book cover already on Katherine's page, and since book covers are commonly reproduced; I had wanted to add non-fiction. I guess your eagle eye has its work cut out on Wikitree, with so many uncredited, or otherwise unauthorized copyright infringements unchecked, ie: (copyright: Y. Drolet, uncredited, other than dead link to website; [(Copyright © 1997-2018 The Aerodrome)];

RE: Frances Rainsford, she was Joseph Grimaldi's second wife and not a mistress. I don't know why you'd suppose she was a mistress, as his first wife was guillotined. Anyway, see Dictionary of National Biography, in the entry for Marcus Rainsford: " His sister Frances (d. 1 809) married, first , in 1 774, Major-general Wellbore Ellis Doyle (rf. 1797); and, secondly, Count Joseph Grimaldi, brother of the Prince of Monaco."

Thank you for the merge John. I'm building this tree on behalf of a friend in Croydon Vic, who would be your second cousin once removed.

Hi John, re: Chandos-14:

Well, we'll need something to distinguish which is which.

We know that this Roberts' father held property in Gloucestershire in 1113. It seems you're suggesting the Robert that Orderic calls castellan of Gisors abt. 10 yrs later, was possibly a different person?

I have asked about accessing the Keats-Rohan Domesday book, but never got an answer?

I have found out through that Eleanor of Aquitaine is my 23rd ggrandmother and Katherine Swynford and John of Gaunt are also my ggrandparents Henry (Hotspur) Percy is also one of my ggrandparents. I'm very interested in finding out more about them. Also Prince William and Duke Harry are my 8th cousins and Princess Diana was my 7th cousin once removed. I haven't been able to be as active on Wikitree as I want to be because of an illness. I'm fascinated by all of this and would love to help in any way that I can. I'm 24 degrees from Queen Victoria but I'm not exactly sure what that means. I thank anyone who can help me understand exactly what this means. Thanks again.

Hi. Can you have a look at Dag? Couldn't discover which project protected him but seems likely euroaristo. Dag of Westmare was a petty kinglet whose only claim to fame was that his daughter Liv (Hlif) married a King. In Ynglinga Saga he has no parents or wife. Had a bit of a conversation on G2G which shows what I suggest. If that is done it probably won't be necessary to keep him protected. His daughter is also protected. Her name isn't Liv but she's married to the same King. Don't know what to do about her yet, just trying to get all the Dag of Westmares merged at the moment. C

I probably won't be the one to propose the merges for the Ratclyff/Radcliffe line. I just found them in search, but there's too many spelling alternatives ... so I just added matches, just in case there's more duplicates.

As for greying out... you only saw a small bit of the convo. Diane and I weren't focused on visibility (and you know I'm the one who's the stickler when it comes to UX/UI ... and my eyes might be worse than yours:) ... The grey was to sift the mass of kids who died young and focus on the ones who lived. It was for a hunt to track down some info. The Metcalfe project is ongoing BTW ...:)
