Biography

Amanda Myers is a member of the Australia Project.

Born in the 1960s, I am our family historian. I trained as a computer programmer in the 1980s but went to work for a government department.

I started tracing my Family History when my beloved grandmother died in 1988. Listening to my grandfather reminisce I decided to write down as much as I could. My grandparents had raised me in my early life and it became my solice. Then it occurred to me just how little I knew of my dad's side. He died when I was very young and so it continues......

Amanda participated in the England v Australia Ashes Challenge.

Lifetime member of Genealogical Society of Victoria

Hi Amanda

It's very honourable of you to clean up profiles as requested. You may know of Michele Bergin on Wiki Tree. She did much work on the site and has since pulled back or out. It turned out that Michele and I are both related to this family and it was she who filled me in in their movements around the globe! Honestly all I received in a message was the change from Hampshire to Essex had been made, perhaps logically, but unfortunately incorrectly in this case. I do not doubt your intentions to tidy up the profile were good.

Hi Amanda

I am having to go through biography alterations that you have made to profiles that I am either the profile manager of, or on the trusted list of. Profiles that have been carefully put together by 3 family members to those profiles and are not that historic. Eg. Emily Clarke (1867-1957) (whose mother was Irish and not from Essex. Emily Clarke was born in Guernsey which is not in Essex. Laura Clarke Julia Clarke (who only died in 1948) and we documented the profiles correctly. You have said that 3 of these individuals emigrated from Essex to India. As already on the profile, it could be seen that Laura Cotter was actually born in India. Julia Clark (as already documented) was born in Hampshire and it was correct for me to record that she emigrated from there. None of them ever set foot in Essex. Ever. These people were from an army family that moved around a great deal. Could I suggest that it is always a good idea to contact the Profile Manager or Trusted List person before you make these kinds of changes. You gave no sources and did not check the profile details. Thank you. All the best.

Hi Shoshanah

As the changes page on these profiles prove I have never stated that any of these individuals emigrated from Essex to India but from Essex to New South Wales.

The following is what has already been explained to you in a private message on the 8 Oct 2020

"I'm sorry that you feel that way. I volunteered to help move 3000 profiles to their correct categories.
The migration place refers to the last place the family lived before they immigrated to Australia. That was in Chelmsford, Essex where younger brother (at the time) David Henry CLARKE was born 1876, prior to the family's move and therefore the place I used.
CLARKE, DAVID HENRY WALSH GRO Reference: 1876 J Quarter in CHELMSFORD Volume 04A Page 246 https://www.gro.gov.uk/
The passenger list including the family http://indexes.records.nsw.gov.au/ebook/list.aspx?series=NRS5316&item=4_4800&ship=Nineveh also states David was born in Essex.
I do not make assumptions and I check my facts.
As for the source information I provided the voyage source on Julia CLARKE's profile which you deleted. If Julia's biography remains empty it is only a matter of time before the profile ends up on an error report and someone else corrects it."

As can be seen I did provide sources both above and on the profiles which you have chosen to ignore.

Thanks! Great job! We had another month of over 10,000 profiles sourced!

Hi, concerning this edit, quite a few sources a named. I am assuming your addition of a template has some more specific target in mind such as making all the sourcing in-line, or naming a source for specific information? This template does not seem the best way to explain that though?

Thanks Amanda. I'm very confident to make changes to Crimeen-2.

P.S. I like the way you've presented the sources. They look very clear to me.

Thanks again Amanda for adding sources to Crimeen-2.

I'd like to change the research note from 'Mary is not on Famine Orphan Girl Database' to 'Mary is on the ..... Database with surname Crummin'.

Hi Amanda;

I am about 95% sure that McDougall-641 and McDougall-1874 are the same person. The name McDonald I think is the name of Jane Mackey's husband prior to her marriage to Dugald McDougall
