I've been a WikiTree member since February 3, 2013. I'm a member of a number of Projects which reflect my interests--feel free to contact me in connection with any of them!

Major Roles in Major Projects

Team Leader

I'm Team Leader for the Province of Maryland Team of the Southern ColoniesProject and welcome new team members.

Project Coordinator

  1. Disproven Existence Project I'm Project Coordinator and resident early medieval/pre-medieval expert as well as Maryland liaison. I coordinate efforts to evaluate simple Disproven profiles (with the research box) or Uncertain profiles/groups and the various steps to get them added to the project (or by another interested project).
  2. Medieval Project I'm Project Coordinator for the Ancient Royals subproject covering profiles of persons born prior to 742. I'm working with John Atkinson, the project Leader, to find ways we can add manpower to developing these very early profiles.
  3. Maryland Project. As Project Coordinator I lead this subproject of the United States Project. I have been working on my Maryland roots for many decades and maintain a significant personal library of Maryland resources
  4. Indonesia. Having spent part of my growing up years in Indonesia, I founded this project which is now a full-fledged project with a Leader. As Project Coordinator I help volunteers with bilingual and trilingual profiles and categorization.

Minor Roles or Minor Projects

  1. Wales Project I work extensively with profiles of pre-1500 Welsh nobility.
  2. Ranger Project. As a member of the "Saturday Shamrock" team I take my public service turn helping monitor potential harm to our site.
  3. Categorization Project. As a former Project Coordinator for this project, I continue to be liaison for some of the other projects I'm involved in.
  4. Magna Carta Project. I highly value the rigor of the Magna Carta project which has affected everything I do on WikiTree. I appreciate the chance to document early English nobility and am "Gateway Guardian" for Giles Brent. As a former Project Coordinator and emeritus member of this project, I hope to find time to do another Magna Carta trail some time in the future.
  5. England Project I help with very early profiles and have a special interest in Marcher counties like Shropshire and Cheshire because of their proximity to Wales.
  6. Early Scandinavia Project I joined this project because of ancestors in extraterritorial Scandinavian entities like the Kingdom of Dublin
  7. Asia Project. I helped found this minor project at present which does not have a Leader, but hopes to become an umbrella project related to various Asia Projects such as Indonesia and India.
  8. Profile Improvement Project I joined the Profile Improvement Project because of my interest in well researched profiles.
  9. King Arthur Legends Project I helped found this small project which engages others in linking together real and legendary people associated with King Arthur.
  10. One Place Studies. I really haven't done anything with this, but I have a particular interest in Llangollen, Wales and Damascus, Maryland.

Personal Projects

  1. Sampson Waring Ancestors Project. I've created a "personal project" for this that others are welcome to join: Sampson Waring Ancestors Project (August 15, 2018). This project traces the ancestry of Sampson Waring, born in Shrewsbury in 1616, back to his possible Norman and extensive Welsh nobility roots. (So far, nobody has!)
  2. I am tracking my own other ancestral lines at Space: Jack Day's Ahnentafels.

Genealogy Publications

  • The Story of the Maryland Walker Family, 1957 (15 pages, mimeographed). Produced when I was 15 years old, and I was thrilled when the Library of Congress, New York Public Library, and Montgomery County (Maryland) Historical Society accepted copies of it for their collections.
  • James Day of Browningsville and His Descendants: A Maryland Family. Columbia, Maryland, 1976. Softcover. Out of print, but several hundred copies in circulation. Over 2000 descendants of James Day, my great-great grandfather who guarded British prisoners of war in Frederick, Maryland during the American Revolution.
  • Three Sisters Went West: An Essay. Looking at the human story behind the dry facts.

Available Databases

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.

Cousins on WikiTree

I've re-arranged the list of my cousins on WikiTree in order of their closeness!

4th Cousins

  • 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.

Hello Jack!

I’m conducting the 6-month check in for the US Black Heritage Project. Because we are growing so fast, it’s not always possible for me to see what everyone’s working on.

I’d love to hear what you’ve been working on and if you are still happy being a part of the Slavery Team. Members can change teams at any time. If you need something to work on, we now have a master task list here:

We now have a project badge! Hooray! As soon as I hear back from you that you’d like to continue with the project, I will add the badge to your profile.

I look forward to hearing from you,


Thank you Jack for helping me (novice) with cleaning up my Blizzards. It is looking good, thanks to you.

Hi Jack! I just noticed that you've added the Magna Carta Project's Affiliate sticker to your profile. Does that mean you want to turn in your Magna Carta Project badge? The project has two membership levels: affiliate and badged (pick one, not both). Let me know.


posted by Liz (Noland) Shifflett
Oh, I didn’t see the project badge and thought it had gone away and wanted to make sure I was still on as an affiliate! I’m happy to stay a badged member, although my time on Wikitree as a whole just took a hit – at the age of 79 I took on quarter-time responsibility for a church congregation, so I’m slowing down a bit. But I value the MC project, which was my entry into more serious responsibility on WikiTree. I’ll take the affiliate sticker off! Jack
posted by Jack Day
Thanks Jack! We've had so many wonderful project members and leaders over the years that when we added participation requirements in 2017 we "grandfathered" existing badge-holders. As a result, the majority of our members are inactive now, but their contributions - including yours - got us to where we are today! Thank you for your continuing interest in the Magna Carta Project :D

Cheers, Liz

Hi Jack,

Thank you so much for all your contributions to WikiTree in the last six months, and especially to the Wales Project. It’s been wonderful to have you as part of the team as we work together to increase the quality and quantity of Welsh Profiles.

I have you down as being on the Managed Profiles Team. Is this right? How are things going? Do you have any questions? What can we do to support you? Would you like to change any of your teams? Do you want to continue in the Wales Project moving forwards?

Hope to see you on Discord soon.

I look forward to hearing back from you with all the above.

Thanks once again,

Olivia, Project Coordinator for Wales :-)

Hi Jack,

It's that time of the year again: check-in time! As England Project Leaders, we like to check in with you every six months or so to see how things are progressing. Back in May, we didn't ask for a response due to the rapid emergence of Covid-19 because we understood that people's lives were changing rapidly. While we are still living in a Covid world, we do need to hear back from you this time around.

First of all, how are you doing? What are you currently working on? Are you happy with the team(s) you're in, or would you like to change things up?

Secondly, we're looking for some feedback on the Google Group and our Discord server. Do you use either or both of these? If you don't use either, why not? Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve participation and collaboration, either generally or for you personally?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Joan, Amy & Lizzie.

Hi Jack -- Am I remembering correctly that you once posted an idea in G2G about how to put Maryland land tracts on WikiTree and reference them in the owners' profiles? I have a vague recollection of such a post, and I'm 99% sure it was yours, but I can't remember whether you were suggesting categories or free spaces or something completely different. (I'm currently reading a Frederick County will that references a piece of land called "Mistake Rectified", which makes me wonder what the story behind that one is!)
posted by Sharon Casteel
Yes, I create clearly labelled categories for them, i.e. Something Land Tract or Something Else Plantation. Consistent with WikiTree policies, if there's significant descriptive material about the place, it gets an accompanying free-space profile. Because people associated with a land tract are often in the same family, it becomes a handy way of finding, linking and grouping family members. It's important to label them as a land tract, plantation, grant, etc so that they don't become part of the hierarchy of place names, i.e. town, county, state, etc.

Hi, Jack. Thank you for reminding me that Maryland, even though the profile box does not give us that choice, needs to be typed in Province of Maryland (1634-1776) sometimes I am away from doing those years and then when I go back I forget. sure would be nice if "Province of Maryland (1634-1776)" could be added as a choice. thank you
posted by Carole Taylor
The profile box list is borrowed or leased from Family Search, so it's not easy to amend, but we did get them to remove "British Colonial America" from the options! But it's nice to be able to type in Province of Maryland, because that makes it stand out that (1) this was a colonial profile and (2) it's been worked on by someone who is aware of what the documents stated in that time period!

Hi I need some help with this profile. I found marriage record on the Maryland.Gov but it limited information. I put few sources I found and need to have some help. Putting how the marriage should go in profile I just put it in for basics. Can you help me please.

Hi Jack!

I need help. I haven't been able to make much of a dent in the hundreds of people profiles in Category: Virginia Colony (which should be top level - no people profiles), so I'm asking you & Lynden to help.

Could you please go to Category: Virginia Colony & for any profiles showing a "B..." county in the list of profiles, could you edit those profiles to not have Category: Virginia Colony but the appropriate County category instead? (And since they are pre-USA, they should only have "Category: A... County, Virginia Colony" not the corresponding Virginia category also. If they aren't pre-USA, they shouldn't be in "Category Virginia Colony.)

The B... County, Virginia Colony categories are

  • Bedford County, Virginia Colony
  • Berkeley County, Virginia Colony
  • Botetourt County, Virginia Colony
  • Brunswick County, Virginia Colony


P.S. Let me know if this is not something you can help with.

Hi Jack, I live in Worcester County, Maryland and have ancestors that arrived in Colonial, VA and then migrated to what was then Somerset County, MD and also Sussex County, DE. George Truitt was the immigrant ancestor of note and his offspring are largely buried in Salisbury, MD at the Parson's Cemetery. I also have an immigrant ancestor, Charles Godfrey, who came here as a servant at 15 years if age although I have almost no other information on him. How do I become a part of the Maryland/Colonial America projects? I would be happy to help others who are looking in this area as well. It seems that in my retirement I unwittingly chose to live in the very area my earliest ancestors helped to settle and there is evidence of them everywhere I go!

Hi, Jack

The Ambassadors project has been reorganizing and is looking for those who have a membership at a genealogical society, to help in spreading the word about WikiTree.

We're working on ways to improve how WikiTree connects and interacts with genealogical and local history societies. This is the kind of thing we want to do:

  • Liaise with societies: set up your local society with a free-space page and some WikiTree materials as part of a package.
  • Use social media to promote what societies are offering on WikiTree.
  • Encourage bloggers to blog about societies and the resources available to them on WikiTree.

Are you interested in participating in some way? Do you have some ideas to share?

Hello, Jack!

Thanks for all the work you accomplished during our Connect-A-Thon 2020. It is amazing how many more profiles were created and added to our Shared Tree over the weekend. We are proud of your efforts.

posted by Pip Sheppard
Pip, I should replace the photo, I'm a bit older, now! But I like the photo. It was 2003, if I recall, and it was a rally outside Congress for health insurance for all. I was on staff at the United Methodist General Board of Church and Society at the time.

Thanks Jack for improving the death place of John Smith (Smith-22641). I see that you're a Beall descendant, so wonder if you also have a connection to John of Mattapany Smith or were being a helpful wikitreer with the change. I'm also a Beall descendant, so hello cousin :D Thanks again!
posted by Beth (Brown) Golden
Beth, I have a great-grandmother who was a Beall, but DNA has established that our "up-county" Bealls are a different family than the main group of "down-county" Maryland Bealls. But I've worked on Bealls for so long that I generally take all the colonial Maryland Bealls I find under my wing!

So we're not blood cousins, oh well. Regardless, I appreciate your assistance with the colonial MD Bealls!

Well, we actually are. I just checked. 19th cousins via our connections across the pond. But not through the Bealls!

Jack, thank you for intervening in the Lee-3470 matter. I thought my role had been to merge an empty Lee-27963 into Lee-3470. When I process a merger request, I always try to determine that the persons match up, and that the life facts line up. With these profiles, only the 1678 death date was off on Lee-27963, and it was before some of the known children were born, so I accepted the 1736 death date on Lee-3470. I did not add the family tree to the profile. I only moved the reference to it into the Sources section. I am skeptical of unsourced family trees and never rely on any from However, as part of a GEDCOM cleanup in a merger, I will list all sources, including family trees, as a courtesy to past contributors, if a suitable substitute has not been offered, and I do search for other sources to validate the story related in profile.

I offer my assistance if needed. David

posted by David Richards
Thanks, David. I'm trying to ascertain now if I can find any additional information on the various Thomases and their Elizabeths, which will determine how to proceed! If you think of it, come back to these profiles in a month or two and see if whatever I've done actually makes sense!

Hi Jack,

Your England Leaders are completing the six monthly check in with all team members. I wanted to thank you for your work on English Profiles. These are unprecedented and difficult times, and we understand as Project Leaders that your situation may have changed somewhat in the last few months. What we are all able to/ wish to contribute on Wikitree has changed. Please let me know if you are happy with your current role and team choice or if you wish to do something additional or different. Thank you again on behalf of all the project leaders for everything you do!

Hi Jack

As you will have seen, we have been doing some restructuring in the Wales Project and are now organising ourselves into different teams. Please have a look at the new project pages, and let me know which team(s) you would like to be in.

Please can you also send me your e-mail address? I can then make sure you are introduced to your Team Leaders, are in the Google Group, and receive an invitation to join our Discord server.

Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the Wales Project that you respond to these check-ins.

Many thanks,

Hi again Jack, from a 20th cousin,

I just have a question about Henry Longe. I see from the Changes page that you changed the status of his parents to Uncertain. Is he still a "Sir"? If not, could you or James Allen kindly remove that prefix? It's a little confusing.

Thanks cousin, dusty

posted by Dusty Boren
edited by Dusty Boren
Dusty, I think I changed the parent status to uncertain because there are no reliable sources for that information , and parent status is a key thing people are interested in with respect to their genealogies/family trees. As for the "Sir", that's reported in some of the same sources, but it didn't seem to be that important. He could have been Sir by heredity or by being specifically honored. The key thing for the profile is to find more reliable information; then such questions go away.

Hello Jack, I'm not on WikiTree often so I just saw a comment you left for me re: Mary (Beall) McPherson. I have spent a lot of time in Sinking Creek, VA. talking to "cousins" and folks that are familiar with our McPherson/Beall ancestors and of course I enjoyed our "Gathering" we had in May 2019 when we placed a monument to both Alexander and Mary. It was a wonderful event.

I would be interested in learning about and participating in your Beall research if you are interested. (FYI Mary Beall McPherson was my 5th ggm).

Hi Jack,

On Collineau de Montaguerre, you left a note about her mega-spouses. She is found as ancestress for oodles of French immigrants to New France on certain trees on the net, none sourced. There are multiple G2G discussions linked to the profile that explain how her existence was disproven. Not much more can be done. The purported spouses are all tagged with uncertain existence and categorized with the appropriate categories. No children are linked. The spouses remain linked to show just how wildly improbable she is.

Hi Jack,

Thanks for the Trevor merger. I'm removing myself as a Profile Manager because I have too many profiles. Best Wishes, dusty

Hi Jack,

On behalf of the England Leaders, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your contributions towards the project in the past six months as a Team Member for Sourcerers, Shropshire and Pre-1500 Prep. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.

Are you happy to stay in your current teams and the project as a whole? Are there any other teams you'd like to join? What are we doing well, and what would you like to see us doing differently moving forwards?

Please respond to this message via e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,

Susie, England Project Leader :-)

Thanks for the message Jack.

Jack, not the first time I've lost work because you notice me editing and started editing at the same time?

Hello, Jack, you asked about the Emison book on the Gassaway/Shipley lines, and the source attached to profiles listed FHL digitized microfilm version, so I attached the appropriate URL link for viewing. The other Gassaway book by the Rutherfords, several years ago the link was digitized and the book was viewable, but when at the FHL centers. Thanks for your message, Jack.

Hello Jack. Thank you for your interest in the DEAN family. I certainly grant your request for trusted access to Lydia Dean. ( Many years ago I received a message to the effect that "Lydia Dean was dau. of Thomas Dean, who was brother to Hannah Dean, mother of Thomas Morey's first wife, Mehetable Hodges." This was ferreted out of a series of land sales by George Hall, after 1726. He was appointed guardian of his children, who as minors, inherited large tracts of land (being a portion of the Taunton North purchase), lying in Norton, then Easton, from their grandmother, Katharine Dean, and aunt, Hannah Dean. In trying to go forward with this information I was unable to sort out the descents and relationships of/ between Thomas Dean & Hannah Dean because Hannah Dean has a different parent here on WikiTree than Thomas Dean.
