John Parkinson was born in Lismore, New South Wales, Australia, on 25th May 1972 to David Parkinson (fishmonger) and Jacquelyne Lee (primary school teacher). He spent his early childhood in the small fishing village of Evans Head, New South Wales; a coastal resort town surrounded by national parks. He spent the years 1984-89 at the boarding school, Farrer Memorial Agricultural High School, Tamworth, New South Wales; despite having no background or interest in agriculture. It was merely due to the school's selective status. John attended the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia from 1990-1994 and graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Science. Until late 1997 he practised dentistry in Northern New South Wales and South East Queensland. In November 1997 he migrated to the United Kingdom, and first held a position as a dentist in Abingdon, Oxfordshire until May 1998. at that period he relocated to Shrewsbury, Shropshire; and practised dentistry in Shropshire and Powys until June 2013.

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with John or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
  • John Parkinson: Family Tree DNA Y-DNA Test 111 markers, haplogroup I-M253, FTDNA kit #B49825
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • John Parkinson: Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test HVR1 and HVR2, haplogroup U3a1c, FTDNA kit #B49825
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with John:

John, I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Participation in a project is strongly encouraged for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles. You appear to have several interests. Why don't you stop by the Project List ( to see how you can participate? Let me know if you need help with anything. We are glad to have you on board!

The help pages give lots of information about the process, best to start with 'Before you import a GEDCOM'.
