There is nothing I enjoy more than hunting down more members of my family tree, except, perhaps, helping others hunt down their own mysteries.

I was a fairly early user of WikiTree and have enjoyed the journey. Chris Whitten, the owner/operator of WikiTree has created a wonderful tool and made it free for all who share the journey. WikiTree is about sharing! We are all part of one great big family tree, but many wish to focus a little more narrowly (it can get quite overwhelming).

If you enjoy the journey and also like helping others, there are many ways you can do it on WikiTree. First, you must love sharing information (subject to any privacy concerns). You must also agree to WikiTree's Honour code. This is mainly about collaboration and respect for others.

There are also many projects by WikiTree members on various subjects. Some of these members give selflessly of themselves in an constant attempt to improve the quality of information that is on WikiTree. Volunteering is a way of life for many! If you like helping people, look into the various projects and see if one matches an interest of yours.

Project Co-ordinator, that is, as a long trusted member of the WikiTree community I have been given additional powers to help others. This in mainly in the area of opening the Privacy levels of profiles which are over 200 years old to the most open level, which is what is required for such profiles on WikiTree.

I can also be of assistance in helping with merges where a profile manager may be un-responsive. Every avenue must be exhausted before this occurs.

If I can be of assistance to any WikiTreer, drop me a line.

My personal interests include: Photography, astronomy, walking, bushwalking, cycle touring, ten pin bowling, arts and crafts, movies and cinema, theatre, science fiction, history, genealogy, technology, environment, social issues.

My main family tree interests are: Oxley (from Kent, England 1839 to Australia), Standen (from Kent, England, 1841), Hayes, Wall, Bech (from Korsor, Denmark).

Hi Paul, I'm curious as to why you disowned Henry Lascelles 1817-1889?....Are you related to the family, or are they just profiles you created? I adopted him anyway, being he was my grandfather x5, brothers, son..... Thanks :)

Hi Paul

I, too, am very new here. I have added the the convict tag and appear to have added the category so now I'm up to the point of asking you for the badge to be awarded, please. I will be adding my tree slowly rather than as a gedcom upload so the actual VDL convicts and early settlers won't appear for a little while. Thanks.

Hi Paul

I'd like to join the Australian projects for free settlers and FTDNA tests. I have just joined wikitree, so apologise if this is the wrong way to join projects- I have a lot to learn! I have added a tag to my profile, but not sure where I was meant to put- Category:Australian Convicts and First Settlers Project. I am descended from an Irish girl, called Ellen Fallon, who arrived in NSW aboard the 'Herald' in 1845. Also, an Englishman called George Smith, who was a sailor. At best he jumped ship, (so never officially 'arrived') or he was a convict. Probably in Melbourne from 1846/7 (the goldfields were calling to him!). I have the shipping records for the Fallons and my FTDNA file is 452841. Regards Fiona

Hey Paul,

A new profile has just been added that absolutely must be connected to your Margaret A. Bowd & Tristram James Bowd. The new profile is for a Tristram Joseph Stewart b.1885 in Wiseman's Ferry, NSW. His Mother was a Margaret Amelia Bowd, but obviously not the same as your Margaret A. as she was only 1 yr old at the time of his birth. Is it possible for you to add any detail/source data to your early Bowd entries so as to make it easier to find the connection with the Bowd/Stewart Family?
