Hi Margaret,

Thanks for repairing the ship names 'Cesar Godeffroy' and 'Peter Godeffroy', built in the Godeffroy shipyard at the Reiherstieg wharf. I'm sure I created one of the original errors (Peter Goddefroy) while I was renaming the voyages categories to '......., Arrived ......'

I've seen other ships with variable spelling. One is the 'Skjold', which arrived at SA in 1841 and is spelt 'Skiold' in NZ. Another example is the 'Iserbrook' which was also built by Joh. Ces. Godeffroy & Sohn.

Regards, Steve.

Hi Steve, I've got a category request for the 1856 arrival of the "Johann Cesar" which I'll be doing shortly, as well as correcting "Caesar" in the parent ship. What's your opinion on "Johan" or "Johann", given that Wikipedia uses both in their article, although "Johan" seems to be used the most?? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johann_Cesar_VI._Godeffroy

Regards, Margaret

Thanks Margaret,

Johann Cesar.

I'm confident holding onto the 'nn' in Johann, but I've seen Cesar spelt Caeser a number of times as well. e.g. http://www.theshipslist.com/ships/australia/johanncaesar1855.shtml.

The ship's list copies the following information: "The Hamburg bark JOHANN CESAR was built at Reiherstieg, Hamburg, by Joh[ann] Ces[ar] Godeffroy & Sohn, Hamburg, for its own account, in 1851/52; Bielbrief [certificate of registry] 3 September 1852. 182 Commerzlasten/390 tons; 37,9 x 8,1 x 5,12 meters (length x beam x depth of hold)."

Another reference lists the following voyages from Hamburg: 1852/1853 - Sydney/Batavia/Semarang 1853/1854 - Melbourne/Valparaiso/Huasco, Chile/Herradura, Chile/Islay, Peru 1854/1855 - Adelaide/Valparaiso/Caldera, Chile/Islay 1855/1857 - Moreton Bay/intermediate ports/Calcutta 1857/1858 - Sunderland/Totoral, Chile/Valparaiso 1858/1859 - Cape of Good Hope/East London/Bombay/Cochin, India 1859/1860 - Cardiff/intermediate ports/Kronstadt 1860/1861 - Cape of Good Hope/Antwerp 1861/1863 - Nikolajewsk, Amur/intermediate ports/London 1863/1865 - Moreton Bay/intermediate ports/Caldera, Chile/Valparaiso 1865/1867 - Moreton Bay/intermediate ports/Le Havre

Hi Margaret, thanks for adding navigation tabs to Space:Prussian_Settlement_in_Australia_-_German_Australians.

I've been experimenting in Space:County_Cavan_Team. Regards, Steve.

posted by Steve Thomas
Yes, we are adding them to all the project pages and team pages, so people can easily move to find other resources.

Cheers, Margaret

Hi Steve, that one was one of the old migration categories superseded by the new structure, it only had a handful of profiles. I think there was one other of yours that didn't have a lower level category as well, it looks like from his wife's profile that she was widow when she emigrated, so he might not have made it here? Always interesting how we found Wikitree, similar to me, I found the profile of my GG-grandfather on here in a google search, created by Kath Cobcroft, who turned out to be my third cousin. Regards, Margaret

Hi Margaret, I have been working today and yesterday on a Bussorah Merchant 1883 voyage page, I just had a message that you had started the same, but I see it is now orphaned. Would you like me to incorporate what you had done already and add you to the trusted list?

Were any of you family on that ship? I'll make sure I add their profiles. Of course I hope to add ALL the profiles.... but its going to take a while!

https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Space:Bussorah_Merchant_1853&public=1

Hi Leisa, my history with the category is I did the renaming for it, back in March when we were converting all the categories to the new format, (I imagine you got my message about all that). Anyway, there was excess information on the category page which belonged on a FSP, which I created, linked it to the category, then orphaned it. So, no, I have no actual connection to the voyage.

What I'll do, is move anything you haven't got to your page, and then get rid of that old one, and link your page in the category info box. I did just notice your inline references weren't showing on the page, so I've added a Sources heading and references tag so you can see them.

One of the links on the old page is the passenger list from NSW archives which could be helpful for you. I'll just add them to the page and let you re-arrange where you want them, I don't think there is much you don't have.

Good luck with it all! Regards Margaret

Hi, Margaret!

Thank you for your participation in October 2020’s Source-a-thon. Your contributions helped us to clear over 57,000 profiles that needed sourcing. This makes our Shared Tree all that much better.

Keep up the great work!

HI Margaret,

Just checking my feed and getting used to Wikitree still - I wanted to personally acknowledge your help with my family tree and the convicts and so forth. Much appreciated - thankyou:)

Hi Margaret,

Van Diemen's Land has been added to the migration structure. The resulting fit with Colonial Australia 1788-1900 looks good to me.

Can you now add "Migrants from County Down to Van Diemen's Land" for https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Hatch-1570? I am following the biography which says that Robert was born in Newry, County Down and migrated to Hobart, Van Diemen's Land.

In passing, I'll note another small problem. Like Belfast, the town of Newry straddles 2 Irish Counties (Antrim and Down). In the small number of cases where I couldn't identify which of the 2 counties someone emigrated from I've listed both. Regards, Steve.

Hi Steve, that one all done, the higher level categories also couldn't have the CIB, now we know that, I'll know what to do if we need to add VDL for Scotland and England. You're doing an awesome job with Ireland, thanks heaps. Cheers, Margaret

Hi Steve, I thought some VDL ones would surface sometime. I'm getting an error with it at the moment, just waiting for some clarification from Categorization project. I also added a new ship category for Bridget. Cheers, Margaret

Hi Steve, those 2 both done, cheers Margaret
Considering his extensive work and travel history, John Holland VC (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Holland-10148) stretched the definition of "Migrants from entity XXX to entity YYY". There's a whole series of countries: Ireland, England, Argentina, Wales, Kenya, India and finally Australia where his journey could have been broken apart. I've ended up ignoring the intermediate stops and replaced "Migrants from Ireland to Australia" with "Migrants from County Kildare to Tasmania". I'm stressing this point where some addition to the Migration guidelines might make the it clearer how to use the guidelines consistently. Still a work in progress.

Hi Margaret,

I would like to be part of the Assisted and Bounty Ships and Born in the Colony teams. Many thanks, Nan

Thanks Nan, I've just accepted your google group join request, so you are all joined up!

Hello Margaret.

I am interested in joining the team relating to convicts and free settlers. I have relatives in both, as does my son's maternal line, which is very complex and full of interesting characters. I believe both groups are led by Veronica Williams. I'm hoping this is a further step in getting my Australia Project Badge. Regards, Chris Norris.

Hi i am trying to work out if we can get the HMT Dunera

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMT_Dunera as a category. About 700 to 900 of the internees stayed in Australia after the war, more went back to England and some to the USA and some back to Europe

It does not quite fit into https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Australia%2C_Project_Guidelines_-_Categorization_of_Ships_and_Voyages_to_Australia as this seems to cover convicts and immigrants

posted by Will Palmer
Hi Will, just read your G2G post, and saw Natalie had added a ship category, I've gone an extra step and created a category for that particular voyage https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:HMT_Dunera%2C_Arrived_6_Sep_1940 what an awful time they had, I hope you'll add some more of their profiles.

As we only put minimal information on the category page, you might consider doing a free space page with more info on the ship and that voyage in particular, and link it to the category.

Regards, Margaret

Hello, Margaret!

Thanks for 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. I hope you’ll join us for the Source-a-thon this fall.

Kind regards,

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.

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.
