I'm Darrell, both a WikiTree volunteer and a Wikipedian. I have been doing genealogical research now for over 25 years using sources from many different nations including the United States, Canada, the UK, Norway, Sweden, France and Germany. My expertise lies within research using records from United States, Canada and Norway, all of which I have used far too many times to count.
My Acadian born ancestors who escaped the Grand Derangement to Quebec were Marie-Joseph (Girouard) Chamberlan and Marie-Anne (Girouard) Nuirat.
A big THANK YOU to Clifford L. Stott and his extensive research into the lines of my ancestor, Richard Samborne. His work has given me my 5th Gateway Ancestor who descends from Magna Carta barons Robert de Vere and Saher de Quincy! Bravo! Clifford L. Stott, FASG, "The English Ancestry and Royal Descent of John, Stephen, and William Sanborn/Samborne of Hampton, New Hampshire," The American Genealogist, 92 (2021/2022):1-16 (to be continued), at 7.
Proper sourcing is a very important thing for me, and the most difficult thing to contemplate is that an ancestor whose line you have considered to be correct for so many years has actually been wrong. Genealogy is not a static pursuit but a dynamic one- one source unearthed, one DNA test or one fresh look could turn ones ancestry on its ear. NEVER be afraid of a challenged profile- it keeps us all on our toes.
Here are my contributions from Wikipedia over the last 14+ years: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Monsieurdl

I've unlinked Jane Trenchard from Thomas Trenchard and Ann de la Lynde (you linked her yesterday). I've written a research note on her profile with some sources .Basically Jane was the daughter of Thomas Trenchard of Lytchett and his wife Hawise de la Lynde d of George de la Lynde and not the daughter of Thomas Trenchard of Hurdhull and Wolveton and his wife Ann de la Lynde the daughter of Thomas de la Lynde. ( the Trenchards were a big family with several branches and lots of interconnections. They split into two branches although Janes nephew George eventually sold Lytchett to his cousin Sir George d 1630 of the Wolveton branch

Thanks for all the data you have contributed to WIKITree.
We are related through both of your paternal grandparents, as well as your maternal grandfather.
Thank you!!! I see exactly the connections you are talking about. My maternal grandfather is where 60% of my UK and gateway ancestry comes from (3 out of 4), and so I've taken on one of them, Charles Barnes, and of course we intersect there at Sir Richard Empson and although it is not a part of that in progress badged trail, I'll be getting there probably in early November I expect.
On my father's side it is really deep with Quebecois ancestry so it really is not a surprise there at all. Here it is exactly as I expected... missing profiles after the early 19th century, which requires more work because PRDH is limited in scope.
Thanks again, and if you need anything let me know!

Thanks for taking responsibility for Orphaned Profiles. This is a courtesy email to share the After Adopting Orphans FAQ which explains the special attention adopted profiles will sometimes need from their profile managers. One quick way to find the profiles you adopted is by searching your Contributions List for the word "adopted" and "manager." You can find a quick link to your Contributions List in the My WikiTree dropdown menu.
If you will be working with any profiles needing GEDCOM cleanup, the AGC tool can help with formatting so that you can concentrate on the research. You can read more about it in the WikiTree AGC FAQ.
Let me know if you have any questions,
