Hi. I'm from New Zealand and keen to talk to anyone about any genealogical topic.

The main areas I'm working on at the moment are:

I'm a member of The Kiwi Crew, and the County Londonderry team. Let me know if you'd like townland or cemetery categories created in Northern Ireland.

Re Eliza Irwin's son Adam Wright - the marriage of Adam and Jennie Crooks 1919 is correct ...Elizas mother Elizabeth was born Irwin too ; her father was Adam Irwin . Elizabeths husband James Irwin's father was Also called Adam Irwin one lived in Claggan and one lived very close by in Lisbuoy. In the marriage record for Elizabeth and James at 1st Cookstown Presbyterian church, on 18.12.1850, there is an adjacent entry for her brother David who got married on the same day. david then acted as Elizabeths witness. Both Adam Irwins show clearly here
I notice that James and Georgina McIlroy were twins, both 11 mo on 1861 Scotland census. Any advice on enlarging the passenger list? I can read the names only because I already know what the parents and 7 children were called.

Hi Susan. In the web browser if you click on the image of the passenger list then a page will load that contains the name transcription at the bottom, and you can zoom in on the book (using mouse scroll wheel, or the + / - buttons on the screen at the far left).

BTW it would be good to comment on the page of the people in question rather than on my personal page , I figured it out this time but might have been a different story for someone called John Smith :)

Hi Matt,

I hope you discover as much about your family as I have about mine over the years.

I am leaving this helpful link for you to study as it helps all members. How-to pages with members. It has some quick tips on working with both the Wiki pages and our other members.

Getting the Best from DNA will tell you more about how DNA kits are used on WikiTree.

The GEDCOMpare process guide has tips on how to use the data in your file most efficiently.

If you have questions about how WikiTree works, let me know. To contact me, log into WikiTree, and go to your profile. Use the ‘Reply’ link below my comment so that I will be notified. You can also click my name to send a private message, or post a comment, on my profile page.

Hi Matt,

McNabb is one of my family names, too. The most recent is Margaret McNabb (McNabb-872), my 3x great-grandmother. I don't know if we're even distant kin, but I thought I'd just stop in to say, "Hi."

Replying again now that I have some more genealogy experience :) I see your guy John is just listed as "Ireland". There weren't a whole lot of Irish McNabbs according to John Grenham, mine are from Tyrone (the bit with the two blue circles).

Have you uploaded your DNA to any other site? Unfortunately doesn't allow uploads so I can't come to you but you can come to me as it were (GEDmatch preferably; or MyHeritage).

It IS odd that John was from Ireland. Sounds like politics, religion, or the military to me. I'd need to find a historian who specialized in Scotland/Ireland and/or military history in that era. I know my way around English medieval lit, so this time/place is way out of my area of expertise.

The DNA WAS from Ancestry. I believe my Ancestry family tree is visible - it's under Claire Chapel, my maiden name. Don't go looking for accuracy beyond about five or six generations on my Ancestry family tree. When I started on Ancestry, I thought that every clue they offered was worthwhile. I learned differently to my chagrin.

Well, as we keep adding in family members, maybe a link will surface.

Until then, happy tree climbing, Cousin Matt! If you get stuck, I'm generally around.
