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 there, John!

I have family stories that say we are descended or related to Mary Queen of Scots. Our family is the Willis's or as spelled in the 1500's, Wyllys. I have found with my own research that we are related to Margaret Gascoigne but the search ends there. I need some guidance please

Hi John, I'm talking Ales. Thanks for your comments. Re Euro Aristo, I was just following instructions from Steven. Re the references tag, I am aware of this and will be fixing it. Thank you. I would also let you know that I have ceased to participate from the thon and am withdrawing. Susie

Thank you for your message and the link, it is a learning curve and a conflict of guidance

However that still does not negate the fact you ignored the DO NOT EDIT template and did not contact me, who made the changes first, before reverting them and explaining why the edits needed to change back. Causing me to lose the work I had added by a conflict in editing.

There are over 90 suggestion in relation to nicknames including titles in Surrey alone and having spend several hours today revising a lot of these the data in the link is in conflict with Data Doctor suggestion lists.

I saw your comment on this profile. I found the Ragman Rolls on a different sight. Till I was researching my 18 great grandpa here didn’t even know about them. So neat !!!! Thanks for post on grandpa profile.


Many thanks for your help with my Talmash research. Much appreciated.

Hi John,

Thanks for proposing a merge between Pallars-3 and Pallars-1. If you are pre-1500 certified you'll be able to merge them. I can't do the merge because I'm not certified for that. You're welcome to !

Hi John

A little oversight on my part sorry.

I posted this when you were away, you might want to weigh in: Thank you.

John, that can NOT be the reason for the merge rejection? The G2G comment is about the parentage of a Renaud (although the sources quoted seem to be about something else) but concerning that question Wikitree has continued showing both these Renauds with the SAME parents. They are full brothers on Wikitree = SAME parents. BUT, one has Maud as wife, and the other has HER children. Maud is being kept separate from her children. Best would be that we do not use profile management in this way anyway, surely? Best way to communicate any issue is probably not to lay personal claim to profiles? I will also comment on the old G2G item.

John can you please explain the rejected merge below. What is the modern evidence you mentioned on the profile and why is the merge being blocked?
posted by Andrew Lancaster
John there is a rejected merge for Courtenay-435 and Courtenay-57, currently full brothers. You have left a message saying that "modern scholarship" thinks they are two different "French" and "English" people. But there is no reference to what this is about and nothing has been added to any of these articles to distinguish them. This causes a big problem for trying to fix up the very complex family. His son to another wife married her sister, and the Courtenays then had a double claim on the barony of Okehampton, but currently we have one Renaud marrying one sister, and his brother Renaud is father of the Renaud marrying the other sister. I can't find any source which does not demand that we merge those two brothers, but in any case please we can't leave it like this?

Hi John,

I noticed that one of my husband's supposed distant ancestors, Gerard Camville, was orphaned, despite being Project Protected. I'm guessing at one time the EuroAristo project or one of its variants Project locked him but never got added as manager. I adopted the profile as a placeholder so it could find its way into the right hands. A Euroaristo project member just commented on the profile so maybe this is a good time to ask--would one of the EuroAristo projects like to take over as profile manager for him? I'm happy to add whichever project account wants custody. -Sarah

Thanks, John, for your message on my profile page about the Basset thesis that has recently become available. I glanced at it a few days ago. It does not help with the branch of Bassets associated with Sapcote, Leicestershire but it does deal with the family of Alan Basset the Illustrious Man of the Magna Carta, the branch I am working on at the moment.
