Born in Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia.

Brought up on the south coast of New South Wales in Bomaderry, in the Shoalhaven area.

!970-1972: 3 years General Nursing training, at St George Hospital, Kogarah, in Sydney. (Hospital based training before Nursing was a university degree).

1989-1994: Bachelor of Business (Accounting) degree, studied externally, part time at the University of Southern Queensland, in Toowoomba, Queensland.

1990-2009: Owner/operator of two tax preparation franchises, consisting of 6 offices on the Sunshine coast in Queensland, registered tax agent.

Lived in Queensland now since 1975, my husband, 4 children, and 3 of my 6 grandchildren are all Queenslanders, I'm in the minority at State of Origin time, fortunately I'm not a football fan!

Retired registered tax agent, now able to spend more time on my long term hobby of family history.

Gradually adding my previous research after uploading a Gedcom file.

As a member of the Data Doctors and Categorisation Projects, I'm concentrating on improving Australian profiles and categories..

Hi Margaret,

I cannot merge all of the profiles that you have sent me, as Ivan Shaw has them all as living and set as private. I have requested Ivan to correct the above problems, but he is not contacting me back. Can you please help? Thank you Bev

Hi Margaret, You need to request Ivan Shaw to open the profiles of Isabella's parents -Charles Henry Knight 1830-1877, and Matilda Louisa Gordon 1832-1931, have birth dates more than 150 years ago, so their privacy status should be set to OPEN. I didn't create them.

Hi Margaret,

I am very unfamiliar with the WikiTree system but have slowly started copying my stuff over from Mundia & Ancestry where they are happy to have my info and share it to paying people but give me nothing in return for the almost 300 people I'd detailed.

I've got Thomas Shepheard set to Public so everyone can see it. I don't understand why I need to set it to Open which gives anyone the ability to change data which may not be a good thing.

Please explain as I do not yet understand the WikiTree system. Cheers David
