[Category:Australian Convicts and First Settlers Project]

My family has been tracing our Family Tree for many years officially since the 1960s. Our known family history is from Cornwall, Devon, Various Scottish and Irish places, Montenegro and Hungary. And our ancestors travelled to Australia to find their fortune mostly around the 1850s, Some as self funded and some as assisted immigrants. We have only been able to find one convict ancestor who was sent out in the very early ships to Australia.

We are mostly from Victoria and New South Wales but there are some connections in Western Australia.

Hi Caryn, If you want others to be able to see how they are related to Olive and Sasha, you will need to change their privacy levels from 'private' to at lease 'private with a public family tree' as Kitty suggested below.

Welcome to the DNA Project:

Please make sure each bit of DNA test information is added to the actual test participant's profile, not someone else's like your own. To make cousin connections, WikiTree needs to see the FamilyTree tab. Check that your Privacy on your profile is set to "Private with Public Family Tree" as a minimum. (Living minors should have an Unlisted privacy level.)

If you have not already done so, please set your preferences for your Tags Followed to include DNA and other terms of interest to you:

As you add your family lines and connect to the big WikiTree, you may find new cousins. Use the Relationship calculator to see if you are related to me, Cooper-1 with

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.
