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! 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?

Hi John, no problem, if I need to reconnect with William's descendants, I can make the request then. We all make mistakes, no big deal.

Hi John,

As a new geneticist/ genetic researcher, I feel as if many of your comments come off as rude or as if you are preventing me from accessing particular information. Maybe this document about my family will allow you to understand better. I don't know if we are related or if you don't consider a certain line of the family to be "family" and I understand - that is personal and an individuals choice. On a free open space web database where cyberpolitics and biopolitics are occurring, the more one criticizes instead of helping, the less one receives in return. Instead of saying my stuff is wrong why not say "I believe you are mistaken and I could help you do better, or let me refer you to people who could help you do better, thanks!" It would come off as a lot more friendly. I don't want any issues, I simply wanted to let you know how some of your short comments- I know you want to get straight to the point (this happens to me as well, we are all guilty of it but we should call one another out)- may come off to others online.

Sincerely, C.D. Political Science, B.S. Advertising / Public Relations B.S.

Hi could you please take over the managment of and any pre-1500 family members of her. I don't have the pre-1500 badge and don't have the time to get it. If needed I can help you with the pointers were to find the correct data or sources on those profiles. My father has the level and time on other project to get that badge. But he is old and has no interest to be active member on this project. My main project is and this just a project I'm just helping. If needed I can also give you the wikidata numbers of those profiles.

Hi John,

I have tested my DNA with multiple companies. I figured out I have a fan chart inheritance by looking at my results/researching it online. On Ancestry I had a family member who is a sister of my father go all the way back to Wessex/Charles V.

I got my pre-1500 badge and started working on French royals just before 1500, targeting the children of Louis XI, Charles VIII, Louis XII, and Fran├žois I's immediate family (I've only had a look at his sister so far). I've already found three garbage-y profiles UNKNOWN-100736, D'_Alencon-2, and UNKNOWN-100821 and I think I know how to dispose of them. I just hope I'm not going about it the wrong way. Isabelle.

Hello John,

May I be awarded the euroaristo badge, I have joined the group and will continue sourcing (including updating & referencing memorials), cleaning up, adding categories to profiles, and improving profiles of my family lines and relatives (including de Vere) as I cross them. I have read the naming convention styles & standards. Thank you and Happy Easter!
