I was born in Auckland on 10 Aug 1952, first child of Lorraine Hahn and Edgar James Hylton. I lived there until I was 12 where I attended Kelston Primary and Avondale Intermediate in Auckland, New Zealand. When the family moved to Hamilton, I attended Hamilton Girls High School which I did not enjoy. I had several close friends from Auckland who are still friends today (2021) - Annette Miller, Jenny McKenzie and Robyn Bunce. We had a brilliant childhood as often children of the fifties in New Zealand did with lots of outdoor play and not a care in the world. In 1970 I started nursing at Waikato Hospital, Hamilton when you learnt 'on the job' and worked 6 days a week. I didn't care what I got paid, I just loved it. It was my only career although when the girls were young, I stopped briefly to waitress at the local hotel in Otorohanga in the evenings. I was a registered nurse for 48 years but retired in 2017 to enjoy more free time and my grandsons, whom I look after when required. I married Greg Hunt in 1975 in Hamilton. We lived the first two years of our marriage in Palmerston North and had many good friends. We then moved to Otorohanga and Greg began working for his father. I never thought we would stay there but we lived there for 39 years, firstly, in our first built home that my brother, Jeff, built, then at a lifestyle block along the same road - Old Te Kuiti Road, Otorohanga, for another 10 years before we built a new home with our daughter, Loren, and son in law at Pokuru. I love gardening, crafts, art and am a committed, active Christian in my church and in my community. I am living through the Covid pandemic from 2019.

Genealogy Research

I have researched several lines of family since the 1980's. I had to leave it while raising children but now back into it developing genealogy/heritage pages of all my information for the next generations. I am hoping they will appreciate the work that has gone into it and keep the albums!! My list of names is as follows : Alden, Hunt, Hahn, Sinclair, Earl, Nielson (Nilson, Nielson) - who knows! (Norway), George (Wales), Shepherd and Nightingale ( Kent), Davidson, Duncan, Urquhart, Coventry.

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Denise or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Denise:

It’s time for a Project check-in!

Scotland Project Leaders check in with you at least once a year to see how you are doing. With the changes happening around the world, we understand that life is hectic right now.

What are you planning to work on for the Scotland Project this year? Are you happy with the team(s) you part of, or would you like to make some changes?

This time round, we’re also looking for feedback on the use of Google Group and Discord. Do you use one or both of these? If you don’t use either of them, what is the best way to ensure you receive Project communications? If you would like to join us on Google Group or Discord, let us know in your response.

Hi Denise

Thank you for adding your DNA Test information to your profile on WikiTree. Your information will be propagated to the profiles of your parents and your ancestors within about 24 hours of being added. It will also propagate to the profiles of the descendants of your ancestors, so they may see your information under the heading "DNA Connections" just as you can see theirs.

Getting started with DNA outlines how to proceed to use your DNA test information on WikiTree and DNA is a link to a collection of links about WikiTree's many features involving DNA.

The DNA Connections list on your profile will provide a visual way for you to find potential relatives on WikiTree who have also added their DNA test information. Using DNA tools at sites like, if you find a relative that matches your DNA sufficiently and you have genealogical sources for the intermediate relationships, you can mark the specific parental relationships back to the most recent ancestor that you both share as "confirmed with DNA." For details, guidance, and examples of how to properly document DNA confirmations, see DNA confirmation.

To find other potential relatives, continue adding sourced profiles for other lines until you can connect on all branches. The more branches you are able to add the greater the likelihood of finding potential cousins to match with. The process of identifying which branch elements of DNA relate to will better enable you to find matches that relate to the particular branches you are researching.

Have fun!

Hi Denise

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Pre-1700 ancestors can be shared by many descendants, so collaboration is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.

The England and Scotland Projects may fit your research focus. If not, use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find other possibilities. Review the project page to learn about resources and guidelines as well as how to collaborate with the project members.

Thank you for volunteering. You are now a full member of WikiTree.

Start with the New Member How-To Pages - they are really useful as you add profiles and learn your way around: 

Let me know if you require assistance. I am happy to help. After adding my own family and ancestors I have found many cousins and distant ancestors here on WikiTree.
