Greg was featured in a Meet Our Members Post on the WikiTree Blog!



A New Hampshire native, I was born and raised on the West Side of Manchester. I moved away for a time during my college years, first attending and graduating from University of Rochester with a Bachelor of Arts in Financial Economics and Political Science. I then attended the McCombs Schools of Business at The University of Texas at Austin, where I earned a Master in Professional Accounting degree. I am currently a licensed Certified Public Accountant and work in the accounting/finance sector.

I've had an interest in my family tree for many years. My family had constructed a rudimentary tree when I was young that included most of my great-great grandparents. I began researching more earnestly in June 2015, shortly after my grandmother, Irene (Labrecque) Cuvellier, passed away.

A review of my ancestors during the past several centuries demonstrates that most of my direct ancestors were commoners. One has to go back to the 17th century in order to find nobility among my direct ancestors, and further still to the 13th century to find purported royal ancestors. Results from Y chromosomal testing confirm my lineage genetically along the direct paternal line going back to the early 17th century.[1]

The table below provides information on my progress in identifying my direct ancestors. The oldest generation comprising a full set of my direct ancestors is my 4th great-grandparents, which I completed in May 2017.

I have a dozen pending merges where I got a notice that lack of response was due to people who had been inactive long enough to have their profiles detached. An additional delay of 30 days minimum was put on those merges, although only a minority are "before 1700, " and no approval is still pending. A mentor who asked me to submit a merge was able to over-ride the delay on another pre-1700 which I submitted at her request.

I also have been blocked from viewing the orphaned profiles lists, but I don't really care about that, as long as I can adopt or propose merges on individual profiles which are more meaningful to me.

In a merge which I submitted, I was asked to contact the originator of a profile "source" URL which was blocked both by requiring a membership and by the writer setting it private. I did contact that person and got a response along the lines of "how can anyone expect me to allow my source to be quoted?" When the 30 days expired, I was permitted to complete the merge and delete the useless source URL, which probably didn't cover anything beyond public sources.

As to references, several profiles, including the parents aunts and uncles of my namesake, depend heavily on NEHGS articles without even giving adequate titles, so it would take a search effort by a fully paid member to find them. The NEHGS screen shots are protected by copyright and Windows IP facilities. and could be photographed only by a separate camera. In my mind, this is another even more unsatisfactory way of sourcing profiles. I haven't checked whether linux screen shots are protected, but clearly it's their intention to consider any copy a violation of copyright.

I would welcome a pointer to an official wikitree method for citing references such as this. A URL obtained under a paid membership will not work unless logged into a paid-up account. With an unpaid membership you get only the VR of the marriage which is quoted already. If you paste the string I placed in the references into a search engine, you get several more complete descriptions of the well-known Mayflower society references, but nothing specific for this profile. Your criticism would apply more strongly to other profiles which require paying a fee to see the source. Quoting a URL requiring payment isn't much better than the multitude of profiles containing dead URL links which only rarely get an unsourced tag added. Is there is a wikitree policy supporting toll sources?

I'm sorry I blundered with the FS comparison of Wood--100, and I should have paid more attention to the date of the profile so as to leave it alone. Normally I post public comments if I would like to make "significant" changes. I agree, FS has shown some totally wrong suggestions.

Greg, Susie removed me of the Canadian project although I replied I would like to continue to stay in the project. It seems I'm not the only one who has this problem with her. Susie says I didn't reply. I don't know what the problem is.

I copied the message I sent her back now when I saw she removed me from the project.

"Susie, I replied back! And I replied that I would like to continue to be in the project. In the Source-A-Thon I sourced Canadian profiles. I will copy this message now also to Greg. I want to stay in the project!"

Thanks for solving that Jelena

Greg, would you or one of the other Quebecois Project members be willing to welcome Nathalie Fortin in French. She has been a member of WikiTree for a couple of weeks. Thanks, Debi

Hi Greg,

Did you remove yourself from G. Simenon's trusted list? I can't remember having done such a thing (if I did, it was an error). I have set the profile to Public. He was a notable, after all. Isabelle
