  • First-hand information. Entered by Graeme Olney


I have been working on my Wife's and my Family trees for a few years now. I got my start on mine from the work my Brother had already done and the start on my Wife's from a hand draw tree that her Father had done. I have since gone on to mainly extend my Wife's tree out into the many branches of the Corney family across the Globe. Olney-518 13:01, 6 January 2016 (EST)

Hi Graeme,

Thank you for creating the profiles of my 5th great grandmother, Jane Edge (b. 1775) and her first husband, Joseph Bate (1775 - 1808) on WikiTree.

It was a fortuitous case of serendipity that led to my discovery of these profiles. Whilst casually reviewing my "Wiki Genealogy Feed", I noticed that you had created the profile, Tranter-455, which is a surname that I follow. This led my curiosity to your own profile and ancestors, whereupon I began to discover many familiar surnames and locations connected to the Tranter surname in my own family and, lo and behold, my own 5th great grandmother (despite finding no connection to the original Tranter-455)!
