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.

I was not given a option to choose a match for the Lady Agnes Mackenzie that I created

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 ...:)

Re marriage - I tried to figure out where quote in Wikipedia article came from - could you take a look & see if you can decide?

Hi John concerning Wykeham-1 I am wondering if there are several people combined there, meaning that we have to split and merge, so to speak. Have a look at the sources. It seems the wife of Champnais had Perot and Wickham as possible maiden names, but not Long. Not sure I follow it all though. This source maybe helps:

What would you suggest I do with Mary Vivian? The only Mary Vivian I can find a baptism for in this time frame in Cornwall is the one I have from Newlyn East. Could she possibly be living with her extended family in Wendron when she meets her future husband. Then I would have the wrong father but the John she is linked to as father might be an uncle etc instead.

The only marriages for John Vivian/VYVIAN I can find are 1575 to Philipp Brabann in Newlyn East; 1587 to Catherine Congan in St Austell, and 1592 to Jane Nankeville in St Columba Minor.

See the comments I’ve put on Mary’s profile.

Thanks for your comments on John Vivian. I’m making sure I only include Vivian’s of Wendron in this family. See comments under his father’s profile.

Hi John, we have some folks wanting us to merge out Wulfrun. I remember that part of the tree being a nightmare a few years back and there must have been some reason we didn't merge out (besides the problems with son Wulfric's various constructions but I think that played a part in it ... Remember the Leofric trainwreck?:D). Can you do a once over and check her LNAB, etc... before it goes ahead. There's also a G2G discussion going here:

Hi John. When you get a moment could you deal with LNAB for Princess_of_the_Holy_Roman_Empire-16 and her siblings? I've Added sources and a bit of a bio to some of them.

Hi. Sorted out Frances Ellis. Some mistake! Can you add the complete peerage source? I haven't seen it and don't add what I haven't seen. Cheers, C
