Current Priorities and Projects on WikiTree
My general research focus is colonial Maryland families, with a focus, of course, on the ones I descend from. My ideal is to develop detailed, well-sourced profiles.
I'm also a sucker for any potential lines back to Charlemagne. I've now disproved more than 3 lines back to Charlemagne.
Magna Carta Project. I value the rigor of the Magna Carta project and appreciate the chance to document early English nobility.
Welsh Ancestry reaching back from Sampson Waring of Shrewsbury, Shropshire.
Bealls of Maryland, focusing at the moment on Alexander Beall, b. 1621 and Margaret Ramsey.
Warings of Shrewsbury, focusing at the moment on Richard Waryng, b. 1547
Widmerpoles of Windmerpool, Nottinghamshire, England.
As a lifelong genealogist, I've developed "databases" of a pre-1800 information on a number of Maryland families. These databases are in MS Word files. They arrange bits and groups of bits of information according to the actual or guessed birth date of an individual, so that contemporaries are grouped together. There are footnotes giving source wherever possible. These databases aren't perfect, of course, but they often contain more information than one can find elsewhere in one place. I'm glad to share these databases with anyone who agrees not to post them intact on the internet -- they contain some coding (such as G in front of a date to indicate it's an educated guess) that would not make sense out of context! But I'd be delighted if anything I've done contributes to enhancing the profiles you work on for WikiTree. So just send me a note! Here are the family names for which I have databases. The focus is on Maryland families before 1800.
My father's family came from upper Montgomery County, Maryland, and many trace back to colonial Maryland. My mother's family came from upper New York State and trace back to New England. My sister is a member of the DAR and other lineage societies. I have joined First Families of Maryland.
Dennis Barton is my fourth cousin, with Peter Beyer, born 1760 in the Duchy of Wurttemburg, Holy Roman Empire, as our common ancestor. Peter Beyer migrated to Browningsville, Maryland, where the farm he started is still owned by his Walker descendants.

Hi Jack, I am with the Thomas Name Study. I noticed that you have added notes to the profiles of some of the Thomas family of West River, Anne Arundel, Maryland. Thank you so much for this! I am currently looking at Philip Thomas b 1693/94 son of Samuel Thomas and Mary Hutchins. I plan to link him up to his parents. However my question is that attached to Philip as a grandson is Evan Thomas b 1738. From an Archives of Maryland Online source, he is actually a nephew rather than a grandson. Do you have any record of which is his correct father? Kind regards.
research does not always give the full date of this
particular profile, in this case just the year. This does vary from profile to profile. Some profiles
do give the full date of marriage, it does vary a lot.
Jack, that would be fine with me, but wouldn't it make more sense to use the earlier (161) as the father and (737) as the son? They are actually very distant relatives of my Buck line, and I don't have much info on them at all.
