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)

Hiya Graeme. Thanks for your formatting edits on a couple of my profiles e.g. Just wondering how you managed to add a status indicator of "guess"? I can only see options for "uncertain" and "certain"!
posted by Caleb (Anderson) Day
Hi Caleb - I marked the location as 'uncertain' - it is the reporting of the change that wikitree is showing as 'guess' (but only on the change description)

Thank you Graeme for being such a vital member of our Mew Zealand Project, no one else knows their way around the shipping records like you do and you are always ready to sort out the data problems we create for ourselves.

Tha k you for helping me merge!

Hi Graeme. Thanks for your corrections to Mary and Dennis Corkery. I have found their names on the Gertrude emigration list and it states the names of the children that sailed over with them, and then the immigration lists the children ages but not their names. Julia's name is not on the list. I have found that she sailed aboard the Mariner in 1849. I am trying to locate her between discharge from the Workhouse in 1841 and boarding the Mariner in 1847. Have you any tips that you could give me in trying to locate her during this period.

Hi Graeme,

Was asked to merge Murphy-13543 with Murphy-24877 which I hope I have done correctly just now. Was interested in what your link would be to Denis Murphy. I have been for a number of years looking into his history and when it comes to his direct family link to Ireland/England I hit a brick wall. Would be most interested if you have any other leads.

Kind Regards. Marcia

Hi Marcia

Sorry to say that I have no personal link to Denis or his family or any further details on them - The Merge request was prompted by the weekly database checks for possible errors and omissions. GraemeO Wikitree Data Doctor Based in NZ

Hi Graeme, I'm new to searching for family links but was interested when your name came up as connected to Herbert Spencer Kyle. He is my great grandfathers brother and I sometimes visit his grave and tidy it up when I am walking in the area. Ellen Ann Kyle, nee James, is buried near him, am I right in thinking she was his mother. Hope to hear back from you. [email address removed]
posted by Liz Huston
Yes Liz - all records indicate that Ellen Ann Kyle was Herbert's Mother

Hi Graeme,

Thank you for completing a significant portion of the McKirdy family tree. I am just beginning to find my way around the Wikitree website so your assistance in filling in many of the gaps is greatly appreciated.

Cheers, Greg McKirdy

Thank you for adding the place of Death on Alfred James Frances Varney. I was hoping you have some information on his father Alfred Frances Varney he was 25 years old when Alfred James was born. He married Phillis Barbara Varney. Kathy

Hi Kathy

Thanks but alll I did was remove the cemetery, he was buried in, from his place of death as part of the clean up of the database - I have no further details on his family than you have already added to their profiles. Graeme O
