Hello Des Conners

I am writing about your recent marking many of the status indicators for this profile: Jolliffe-2 as "certain" - this is a profile without any recognized pre-1700 sources and you do not add any sources nor do you explain what makes this information "certain" - we treat pre-1700 profiles very, very carefully nowadays. Please can you return to Jolliffe-2 and add some valid sources so your "certain" designations are validated ?? Thank you for your contributions to our One World Tree! Chet Snow - A WikiTree Leader

Hi Des!

I clicked on the Washington tag and saw where you said you are related to President George Washington. So am I. So, my curiosity was piqued, so I clicked on the relationship finder, had to do the 30 generations options...and, WikiTree says you and I are 15th Cousins. :)

Hi Amanda, I have been studying family history for decades, but only recently found the Washington connection.

George is my 9th cousin's great grandson. Robert Washington born Lancashire, England 1296-1348 is my direct ancestor. Nice to meet you. Most of my American cousins are Holmans and Harrisons. My Grandad John Walsh lived for a while in Massachusetts as a boy, but his family returned to Ireland and then England. I see you have Tennessee relatives. I have a lot of distant cousins who lived there. One of them is Thomas Jefferson buddy Holman born Tennessee 1882 and died 1955. He is on Wikitree. His Dad was a Civil War Vet.
