I like the collaborative nature of Wikitree. Its good fun and there are great people here! Every profile I own I create manually as I have found using GEDCOMs created errors, messy profiles and duplicates.
My number one brickwall to bust through is the parentage of my ancestor William Green. The only hope for solving these mysteries is DNA. I am researching the early inhabitants of NSW by the surnames of Green and Dillon in the meantime since I am hoping to narrow the possibilities. If you happen to be interested in early Australian convict and settler families by the surname DILLON and its variants, you have come to the right place!! :-)
If you are looking at this profile because you are interested in the Pogson, Freeman and Milward families of St Kitts & Nevis, please get in touch. I have done a lot of research about them. Another dear wish would be to find a DNA connection to these families - at the moment I am reliant on genealogical records.
I am descended from families who lived in the area of Watten, Bower and Lyth in Caithness. I'm thinking about a mini-place study for this area to try to untangle the different families who lived there.
Finally, I am doing a one name study of the surname HOOLIHAN in an effort to find out more about my Irish ancestors - another well of mystery.
I have had good success with autosomal DNA - my descendancy from Thomas Reeder; John Munro and Annie McDonald; from Robert Jeffery and Sarah Craze; from Thomas Coath and Elizabeth Parkin; and from William Green and Catherine Garvey have been satisfactorily confirmed with multiple third, fourth and fifth cousin matches.
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Family Tree DNA.

I see there are two Lambeth, London categories. One has only one profile under it. (Category: Lambeth, Greater London, England)
I presume that the correct one is Lambeth, London? thanks Lianne

Yes, I,m still interested in Irish_roots. Lots of good stuff there and maybe I can help out in my own little way. I also found https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/wikitree-irish-roots-project but couldn't log in Rich
