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
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,

Re- the Armagnac merge - I'm pretty sure it was set up to merge into Armagnac and not Armanhac (looks like a Portuguese version of the name, which would explain it, as Luiz Sergio completed that merge). I am on the trusted list so will be able to change it if necessary (in a few hours when I have slept). I've learned something today as it turns out, the Wikipedia page on the province of Armagnac actually has Armanhac as the original gascon form (that still doesn't make d'Armanhac acceptable).

Was in the beautiful New Forest today and managed to get a decent photo of Rufus Stone. Although it is unlikely that it really marks the spot, the picture shows what a good place it was for hunting. Is the pic wanted for Wikitree do you think? If so how do I do it as I am not pre-1500 certified?

Just a heads-up about a pending merge for Maria von Ostfriesland. I'm holding off on the merge as Maria's LNAB should apparently be changed to Cirksena before merging. Thanks ! Isabelle

Hi John, concerning Phillip de Gai, if we remove him as a son of Robert I guess we need to add a new Phillip. RA and MEDLANDS both mention a son named Phillip.

John, a few of your profiles are on the latest DB Error report. Gascona-9, -21, and De Gascoyne De Bigorre-1 have Error 741-Separators in Middle Name, plus date errors (birth 742-0-00, death 819-00-00). WikiTree places these profiles in the Pre-1500 because of these dates, which means only Pre-1500 qualified can edit them.

Hi John! Could you add me to the EuroAristo project & send me an invitation to the project's Google Group? Thanks!

Hi John,

Just wondering if you know why I/We would be removed as PM's and "replaced" with Magna Carta &/or EuroAristo Project's? ie: FitzGerold-13 and several other of the FitzGerold line, I've seen these projects "added" as PM's in the past, but don't understand being removed from same, especially with no discussion or conversation whatsoever.

Thanks for any help you may be able to suggest.

Why are you removing profile managers?

It would be nice to ask, are we following Protocol? Are we following the honor code?
