Many thanks for this Margaret, and Haining is in my family tree as the daughter of Jim Haining in Sydney was the key that brought my mother and father together, quite serendipitously. So much to be thankful for.

Thanks Margaret for the change of names for the Ship Categories. Next time I will have a go at fixing myself, and hope I don't muck it up!

Great interview Margaret, I was hoping to find we were distant cousins but alas, no luck :-(

Perhaps as we expand our trees further into English history we will find a distant connection ;-)

I noticed that many of your answers in the interview mirrored mine: the need to educate WikiTreers about sourcing & collaborating.

for now I'll think of you as an adopted cousin,

best regards,

Hi Margaret,

It's a bit late in the day but I wanted to tell you I LOVED your Meet Our Members interview. You are a wonderful person and a great WikiTreer. I'm so very impressed with your work on Australian categories!


Gday Margaret, like Mark Dorney below, and I suspect through the same bloke, we're connected, and at 16 apart, which is closer than I am with Mark, I suspect, anyways all the best


Hi Margaret

We're just 14 degrees separated AND every link is within Australia, which is kind of cool.

Cheers Mark Dorney
