👪 Campbell's Autobiography 👪

Cape Reinga looking out to Aupouri Peninsula, Northland, New Zealand

My name is Campbell Braddock and I was born in Northland which is in New Zealand. My Dad named me after a Vet named Campbell who came from Oamaru. In 2001 my family and I left the warm North Island and moved to Central Otago where it snowed the night before Christmas (New Zealand Summertime), my parents were dairy farmers, and they didn't like the mixed climate and isolation, long hot droughts in summer then freezing cold snow and ice in the winter, so we moved one more time to South Canterbury, this is where I went to primary school and spent five years of my life, I have many hobbies that I love! including genealogy and painting, but painting came first, since I was 4 years old around about 2003 my parents and teachers noticed that I had a natural talent of creativeness, this is very common in our family, with Graham Braddock my first cousin once removed, a very well-known retired professional christen artist in New Zealand who can paint, my sister and father can also draw really well but they never show their drawings off. In 2007 my mother cheated and left with a farm worker to Australia, the next two years we lived on a farm in Waitaki North Otago when dad fell sick with Hernia followed by Angina pectoris we finally moved to Oamaru where my high school is based.

Oamaru Victorian Building

Oamaru is the heart of Whitestone Waitaki. The town's renowned Whitestone Victorian architecture, little Blue Penguins and rich history are only surpassed by the warm southern welcome you will receive in the beautiful town of Oamaru. With one of the country’s oldest public gardens, two penguin colonies, numerous golf courses and many walking and cycling trails, there are plenty of opportunities to experience the best of Oamaru. I am very lucky to live here and call this place home.
visit Explore Waitaki Website for more information.

I was aged 13 when I first created my first Family Tree on paper, all the information was from my dad and auntie's memories. there were family secrets that they didn't want me to find out about. it turned out that they weren't that serious. I wanted to dig deeper, but no one wanted to give me information. so I kept on asking. dad told me childhood stories but I wasn't interested in that because I was a nieve 13-year-old, all I wanted to know is my ancestors. I stopped asking and couple years went by. On 21st March 2015, I was searching for a Jonas A Braddock on google and came across a WikiTree profile managed by Alison O'Sullivan, I private messaged her and created my WikiTree profile. I connected my family to that Jonas A Braddock (1905). one day later Alison message me back and said that I had the wrong connection, and sent me all the information she had on the Braddock family including NewsPaper articles. I was over the moon!

Aged 16 my auntie sent a copy of a Williams/Leman Tree that came from a distance cousin, It was said that we were descendants of King Charles II, but I or other could not back that up. however, there was an old English newspaper, that said a Dutch woman claims to be the great-granddaughter of King Charles II, that woman was my 3x great grandmother (Esther Priscilla Augusta Parker).

I went to one of the best boys boarding school in New Zealand,Waitaki Boys' High School was my secondary school that I studied at. I graduated on 3rd November 2016 with University entrance NCEA Level 3.

I like making Facebook pages for everything, including my Art. the Campbell Braddock Artist page has some artworks that I've completed. please like :-)

I recently had an Ancestry DNA test done, I was surprised that I had 33% Eastern European, I dug a little deeper and found that many Midlands had Eastern European, but my percentage was still very high, it was like my one of my grandparents were 100% eastern European and there is still 6% left over. another surprise was, I didn't have any Jewish, but I am still related to my family that is, my 3x great grandfather was Jacob Lion Leman, he was 100% European Jewish, calculated from other descendants, so I should have a trace of 3%. Everything else seemed normal, 11% Scandinavian looks right. I only have 5% Irish, my 2x grant grandmother was born in Belfast, so that result for that was also low. I have 13400 DNA matches on Ancestry, most DNA relations don't have family Trees.

🌟WikiTree Profiles I'm Proud of🌟

These profiles are the profiles that I like, some of them are not finished, however, I would like to show them off to you. The top profile is my profile, purely because this is the only place where I can be creative on WikiTree and show off my coding skills. Graham Braddock is my Great-Uncle that died in World War II, I have spent so many hours working on his page so I put a green padlock on the profile. Jonas Braddock is my great-Grandfather, just over one year ago I knew nothing about him and now... have a read of his biography

📐Braddock Name Study📌

The Braddock Name Study was created by me on 25th June 2015, This name study isn't the oldest or largest name study around, however, it is very informative, orginised and provides useful and interesting information about the Braddock Surname. From the very start, my main goal was to "Connect all Braddock's". Many Braddock ancestors from America were connected and placed in Clan 5, I can't connect all Braddock families together, but I put each family into clans that are categorised, at the moment there are 17 Clans from across the world. Each Braddock approved profile will have the Template, basic biography, location categories and sources, extra additions that I add to some profiles are the Quick information Table and timelines. in March 2015 their was 123 profiles, now in September 2017 there are over 850, made up of mosty America, New Zealand and Australia profiles. The goal is to have a WikiTree ID of Braddock-1000 by the end of 2017. and have The Best Online Braddock Tree.

The Braddock List is a Google Sheet that keeps track of all Braddock Profiles and it's variants on WikiTree, this list includes Births/Deaths dates and locations, Braddock Approved profiles, Location categories, if a profile is sourced or not, the real number of profiles and clans. This list has private information and will NOT be shared to others.
