My Dad named me after his hero, General Douglas MacArthur : General Douglas MacArthur
I guess I owe my interest in genealogy to being an incorrigible child. I'm told I "mouthed off" a lot to my Mom. After getting my mouth washed out with soap, or whatever the appropriate punishment was, I would normally get banished to my room for a few days. With nothing else to do, I started reading all the history books my parents had put in my room. Considering my track record for banishment, it did not take long for me to develop an intense interest in history. It was not long after, that I started asking my parents about our history. To my amazement, neither of them knew much at all about their family beyond their grandparents. My Mom would say that her father simply said that they were "Jersey Dutch". My Dad told me his mother came from England and not much else. About ten years ago, my Mom's brother, equally frustrated, completed a lengthy and very professional, well sourced genealogical study for that side of the family. This inspired me to do the same on my father's side of the family, as well as, my beloved wife's family. The results have been interesting and surprising at times. Equally surprising, in a pleasant way, is meeting so many kind and generous people during my quest for genealogical enlightenment.
I have a BS in Biology (minors in History & English) & a MBA, all from the University of Richmond and have worked as a professional landscape designer Lockwood_Fine_Outdoor_Design for many years before adding genealogy to my list of interests. In addition, I am crazy about cats, a trait passed on by my father.
Researching and documenting family genealogy has become a passion . I am a member of the Association_of_Professional_Genealogists and find great pleasure in helping others find their history. To use a business analogy, genealogy is the ultimate micro-economic perspective of history. Most of my ancestors came to the U.S. from England, Scotland, the Netherlands, Germany, France and Norway (DNA tests say I'm 100% European with origins around northwest coastal Europe, Scandinavia, France, the German/French Alps & the British Isles. My ancestors that came to America in the 17th century were primarily Dutch or English. The English were part of the Puritan Great Migration & initially settled on Shelter & Gardiner's Island, part of Long Island, while the Dutch settled in New Amsterdam & vicinity. Later they all settled in Trenton and Bergen County, NJ; as well as, Sussex County, Delaware, Rockland, Suffolk & King's County, NY, Eastern Massachusetts, Hartford and Fairfield Counties, CT.
The prominent names associated with them are:
- Ackerman, Andrew, Armitage/Armytage
- Banta, Benjamin, Blauvelt, Bottomley, Bourne, Bowers, Buys
- Chappell, Clarke, Clayton, Conklin, Cooper, Corne, Culpeper
- Davies, Darlington, Demarest, Denton, Dunkerley
- Fairburne, Federlichner
- Ganung, Gardiner, Granger, Gibson, Grindrod, Groetel
- Hallock, Hoerr, Hocking, Horton, Howell
- Lawry, Laut/Lauth, Lister, Litchult, Lockwood, Luce
- Mabie/ Mabille, Mellor
- Parkin, Parschall, Philip, Polhemus, Post
- Rae, Ramsden, Rayner, Richards, Rudlun/Redner, Ryker
- Schardein, Stanier/Stanyer, Stephens, Shaw, Shuart, Stapleton, Straut
- Taylor, Terry, Thorp, Tredwen, Trewyn, Truan, Turse/Toers/Tuers
- Van Oostrum
- Wannamacher, Wood, Woodhead, Wortendyke, Wycoffe, Wyld
- Zabriskie/ Sobieski, and others.
I am also interested in my beloved wife's genealogy ( & as it turns out 10th cousin - who knew?). Her ancestors are primarily from Sulzburg, Germany, England, Scotland, Ireland, Sweden & Finland. They initially settled in Broome County, NY, Eastern, PA & Southern, NJ.
The prominent names are:
- Barnes, Bowen, Braddock, Bradway, Burdsall, Butterworth, Brach, Braithwaite
- Chase, Clement, Connolly
- Dennis, Dunn
- Ellis, Elton
- Faust, Fithian, Fogg, Foster, Fowler
- Gibbon, Garrison, Groetel
- Haines, Hall, Hancock, Hogan, Horton, Hoyt, Hunt
- Kabisser, Klorer
- Leeds, Lefevre, Lippincott, Lockwood
- Mason, Merrit, Morris, Murphy
- Pitt, Pledger, Potts, Powers
- Redstreake, Rogers, Ryan
- Schiffhauer, Scwheinhardt, Schwere, Seeley, Seifert, Selby, Sinnickson, Somers, Stokes, Swayze
- Townsend, Trimble, Troxell
- Ware, Weed, Wheaton, Wood, Woodruff, Wunder & others
They concentrated in Salem, Cumberland, Burlington & Camden counties New Jersey, Binghamton NY, eastern Massachusetts, Hartford CT and Bethlehem PA. Many of them were Quakers.
The English & French side of her family is fairly easy to trace to the eighth century with connections to Charlemagne & the house of Plantagenet. She is also related to most US presidents. The German side of her family has been difficult, but has been documented to the 15th century with origins in the Swiss/German Alps. Her Swedish/Finnish line can be traced to the the 17th century.
As an aside, I was absolutely thunderstruck when I saw that Wikitree has a category for B 29 bombers in World War II. Specifically, there is an article within the category for the B 29 bomber, the City of Trenton[]. This is the plane my Dad flew in during the war, as the tail gunner, earning the Distinguished Flying Cross. I still can not believe it. An article that allows me to contribute my memories of my hero!

I must give special thanks to Peter_Lockwood, (most likely related - connection TBD), founder & administrator of the Lockwood One Name Study registered with the Guild of One Name Studies, for his invaluable research & support. I also owe much thanks to my cousins Brian Slattery & Elizabeth Bowers for their much needed help with our Lockwood & Bowers paternal family genealogy & my uncle, James Turse http://familytree.turse.org/, for his incredible research on our maternal (Turse/Toers/Tuers) Dutch family line. Cousin Brian Stanton, http://www.weareallkin.info/index.php, also deserves great credit for his thorough research into the Conklin part of our maternal family tree, as does cousin Fred Bressette for his research into the Lockwood/Midwood line of our family.

In the event of my untimely demise I want to be sure that none of my hard work on WikiTree ends up having to be deleted. While I fully intend to be around to manage all my profiles for a good while, in the event of my sudden death, I hereby give permission for all of my private profiles to be transferred to any of my family members or my uncle Jim Turse and his family.
ONS Redirects: they create a link between the space page for the ONS and the surname search page so that the ONS appears on the search page. Only leaders can create redirects. In this case, what I did was type http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Condit in the address bar.
It comes back and says the page doesn't exist. Then I hit the create or edit tab and in the box I enter REDIRECT# Space:Condit_Name_Study and hit save. That's all there is to it and this guy is all set! ;-)
Back in February, I went through the entire list of over 1000 ONS studies and created redirects for all those that had space pages because you can't do it if they only have a category page. I asked a bunch of the members who didn't have space pages if they could create them for their study so I could do the redirect but most members didn't do it and didn't respond back
Note: You just mixed it up a bit. I just did the Stover one for you. You can correct the Shotwell one by going to the Project page there and changing it to #REDIRECT Space:Shotwell Name Study with the space in between the two and everything.

I was wondering if you could do the redirection from Project:Thomas to Space:Thomas_Name_Study. I gather from one of the questions on G2G that that will get rid of the comment on the Thomas genealogists page that no-one has set up a Thomas name study yet. Hope I have read that right. If not, please advise. Thank you!
