Hello Chris - about sending a Trusted List request. You already sent me a message about your email address on 19 April. All I needed was your email address so I could set you as manager.

If you need to know where the link is, it's on your Jephson Name Study on the right hand side under the 'Collaboration' heading. It's in the first paragraph. :)

Oops - that's not quite right. To start a Name Study, you need to sign up on G2G here and I create it for you. You might like to go to the Project page at the link I gave you.

Following up on your query about 'should you start a Jephson Name Study': well, I am rather biased, but I would say go for it! You may find some connections/other researchers, you may not. But having a Name Study is bound to end up focussing you on your Jephsons.

Hello Chris

What you would do is run a Jephson Name Study.  This would create a category for you to put on the relevant profiles (and thus include them in the Study).

To find out a bit more about what a Name Study is, please go to the project page:

and get back to me with what you think. You have some time to do this, as one of the prerequisites of having a Name Study is that you have been on WikiTree for 30 days.

You also asked about "The Jephsons of Mallow, An Anglo-Irish Miscellany". The book was published privately in 1964 in Dublin, so it is not available electronically as far as I am aware and it is unlikely to be available in more than one or two libraries in Ireland, I am afraid, But, if anyone has any questions on the Irish branch of the Jephson family, I am happy to dig into the book and revert with whatever there might be there. Hope this helps. Best. Chris
