Table of Known Ancestors

Recently, I came across a wiki-tool called a Table of Known Ancestors and I decided to add the results to my profile.

  • Maternal relationship is confirmed by an AncestryDNA test match between Simon Ross and his second cousin Living Taylor. The Most Recent Common Ancestors of these two relatives are their great-grandparents and grandparents, respectively, Percival Charles Powell and Florence Jane (Crampton) Powell. Their predicted relationship from AncestryDNA is 1st to 2nd Cousins, based on sharing 360 cM across 24 segments, with extremely high confidence. They are known to be 2nd cousins in real life.
  • Paternal relationship is confirmed by a GEDmatch test match between Simon Ross GEDmatch FL9451826 and his third cousin Nancy Bullen GEDmatch M965554. Their MRCA is their 2nd-great grandmother Mary Ann (Snow) Dillon and possibly their 2nd great grandfather Thomas Dillon, however, for the latter, it is likely least one of Simon or Nancy is not a descendant. The estimated number of generations to MRCA = 3.3, based on sharing 140.8 cM across 5 segments.

Hi Simon,

I haven’t heard back from you about the break up of the United Kingdom Project. I hope all is well with you. I assume you don’t wish to join any of the country-level projects at present, and will go ahead and remove the United Kingdom badge. If you wish to join England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland in the future, you would be most welcome to do so via the respective G2G sign-up post.

Many thanks for all your contributions,

Susie :-)

Hi Simon,

We realise the time has come to dissolve the UK Project in favour of the individual country projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

We are checking in with all UK badge holders to find out which country project(s) you would like to be in so you can collaborate with other members, have the opportunity to select which team(s) you would like to join, and so we can ensure you have all the correct badges.

Please respond by PM to let us know which country project(s) you would like to be in. Please don’t assume we know. We are effectively starting from scratch to make sure no one falls through the cracks.

Once you have done this, the Coordinator for Membership in the relevant country project(s) will be in touch to help get you situated.

Many thanks,

I will do what I can to support what I think you are saying regards "last names". It makes no sense to place a personal name or a use-name in the last name field.

Hi Simon - Sorry to be late, I got your March message about the Ross name project. I'll be happy to join, if it helps.

Our surname transitioned from "Wrose" to "Ross" in the mid-1600s/early 1700s in Bramley (near Leeds) England. It's described by Mary Ross Whitman's genealogy "The Family Line of John Ross."

Pp 2-3: "Joshua Wrose (Ross) ... of Bramley, later of Farsley. Born 1630; died Jan. 16, 1719; bu. at Calverley in the same vault with his father. His name is there spelled Ross, ... while the father’s name is spelled Wrose, ..."

The earliest one I see on WikiTree is this John Ross

I could/should add the others.

Hi Simon, I received your message about the Free Settlers project and don't have any concern about your comments. I plead some degree of ignorance. If you look back at the change history I think you'll see that the tags were added by Christine Pike, not me. I will keep watch for these in the future, regards, Steve.

You could try getting in touch with Karen Tobo who has done a lot of work with language categories and promoting the template
