Earliest ancestor found Ropsley, Lincolnshire, England. Many were Wheelwrights. My gg grandmother, Catherine Bird emigrated to New Zealand in 1863. DNA and paper trail confirmed descendants of Catherine.
Traced my Flemings back to Penninghame, Wigtownshire, Scotland. Andrew Fleming born abt 1810 married Ellen/Helen Douglas Finlay and migrated to Australia in 1848. Son William Finlay Fleming > Donald Fleming > Archibald William Finlay Fleming > Amelia Joan Fleming is my mother
So far we have traced back to my 5 x great grandfather, James Forsyth who married Elizabeth Watson at Ellon, Aberdeenshire, Scotland in 1780. Many generations were Meal Millers. James' great grandson and wife emigrated to New Zealand where my great grandmother was born. Her son, my grandfather emigrated to Australia in mid 1930s
Because of the unusual name of Handscum/Anscum used down through generations a researcher in England kindly obtained parish records for me back to my 6 x great grandparents Thomas Hart and Mary Handskum who married in 1791 at Hollywell-cum-Needingworth, Huntingdonshire, England
Cornelius Kelly born about 1807, probably Tipperary, Ireland. Lived Newpark and Dualla. Married Mary Moloughney in 1834 at Dualla. They had 6 children between 1834 and 1846. Five were known to have emigrated to Australia and New Zealand. Cornelius possibly died around 1851.
4th great grandparents Joseph Pike and Elizabeth Cartwright married in 1806 Co. Kildare, Ireland. Their son John emigrated to Australia in 1840.

It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Kerryn:

I noticed you uploaded or plan to upload a GEDCOM. Our process here is a little different than what you might find on other sites because of our goal of growing one worldwide tree with a single profile for each individual. Here's is the link:
Feel free to message me if you have any questions!
TIP: If your ancestor was born over two hundred years ago, there's a very good chance she/he already has a profile on wikitree. Before creating a new profile, use the "search function" up on top to see if your ancestor is already here.
To help you find your way, the help pages and search features can be accessed through the links on the upper right hand corner of almost any page. Feel free to post a question in the G2G Forum or on a relevant profile page.
