Susie is a Project Coach for WikiTree. Please see an up-to-date list of all the projects she is working with and don't hesitate to contact her if you would like your project to be added to the list for the future.
Susie was born Suzanne Elizabeth MacLeod, daughter of Emily MacLeod in Islington, London, England on 12 November 1972, a Sunday.
|Go Windsor Warriors!|
She was adopted two weeks after she was born and grew up in Hertfordshire where she went to school. From there she went on to Watford Grammar School for Girls. She studied her A-Levels at Oaklands College, St Albans, and then went on to gain a BA (Hons) in Humanities, majoring in English Literature and minoring in History and American Studies, from the University of Leicester in 1995.
Upon graduating, Susie worked in publishing and Public Relations before taking up a call to Christian ministry. She earned a Masters of Divinity from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia, graduating in the summer of 2002. Susie went on to work in churches in North Carolina until her ordination and instillation as Associate Pastor for Discipleship and Spiritual Growth at First Presbyterian Church, Lumberton, North Carolina in January of 2005.
In October of that year she received a call to be Solo Pastor of Burnt Presbyterian Church, Winchester, Virginia. Unbeknownst to her this church was founded by her Great x 4 Grandfather, Henry Martin White and was also the location of his last ever sermon on 22 November 1910, just a week before he died.
Regrettably, as a result of complications from medication given during a bout of viral pneumonia, Susie had to retire from full time ministry in 2007 and return to England
She still continues to serve in the local church where she can, is a committed member of the Women's Institute, a keen crafter, baker, and country walker, and an avid genealogist. She loves being in the collaborative family that is Wikitree amongst all of the "gengeeks" and is taking baby steps towards a Masters in Genealogy, Palaeography, and Heraldic studies from the University of Strathclyde through distance learning.Most recently, Susie has taken on the role of Project Coach at WikiTree, advising on how to structure and lead projects so that they thrive and grow.

In the event of my passing into the next phase of lifes' journey, or that I have become unable through physical or mental illness, to continue my labour of love on my branches, I place the profiles I manage into the caring hands of the Wikitree Admin. If any member(s) of my family have the desire to continue what I have started, I ask that they be allowed to manage those profiles and have the guidance to continue in the proper manner. Any locked profiles that I manage I believe to contain only information that can be found on the internet, so they may be dealt with as privacy would allow.

I'm still quite a novice with Wiki Tree, and am endeavouring to trace back the origins of the Flack family. At the moment I am interested to know the parents of Isabella Flack B1893. She married Thomas Merritt(3076) 19/12/1925 and passed away in Queensland Australia in 1969. The reference given was QLD Death Reg 1969/C4565. If you are not the right person to help with this, would you kindly direct me to the correct channel. Many thanks, Barbara-Flack1074

I’ve not heard back from you so presume you don’t want to continue in the Canada Project at this time so have gone ahead and removed your badge. If that changes anytime you would be most welcome to re-join in the future.
Actually, I am interested in John Diefenbaker's genealogy, and especially relations on his mother's side. A lot of it is found at John George DIEFENBAKER on Tall Trees & Deep Roots. I'm chipping at adding it to John George Bannerman Diefenbaker etc.. on Wikitree
