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,

I’m Susie the new leader of the England Project. We are contacting all existing members of the project to find out how you are currently involved, and how you would like to be involved moving forward. Please have a look at the England Project page for more information, and then contact either myself or Gillian to let us know what you’d like to do, or if you have any questions. We can then list your interests, help you join the team in the Google group forum for England, and give you any help you might need to get going. If we don’t hear back from you we’ll assume you no longer want to be a part of the England Project at this time.

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you,

Susie :-)

John, about Marguerite d'Orgemont. De Chesne's notes are pretty extensive (his information on her burial is the same, but he adds that she was buried beside her mother "Jaqueline Paynel").

I've been checking a book on the history of the château de Chantilly, there is a picture of the armorial d'Orgemont. This names the mother Jacqueline. Doesn't help, it's 19th century. Full legend: Armoiries des d'Orgemont seigneurs de Chantilly, in: Aimé Champollion-Figeac, Cartulaire des Seigneurs et de la Seigneurie de Chantilly de 1111 à 1830. 1846. Book is "le Château de Chantilly" by Jean-Pierre Babelon.

I had thought you might have missed my notes left in June and July regarding Marguerite d'Orgemont. I look forward to the differing information you wrote of being shared through her line.

Thanks for that, John. I know I have to fix these things up. I was trying to establish a line first, then work on the bios. Hope I can fix it up soon.

Hi John,

Finding that the parentage (and family name, consequently) of Wartislaw IX of Pomerania is quite uncertain, I have project-protected the profile. (It's one of the profiles created yesterday to fix a conflation).
