Biography

"All Hobbits [WikiTreers] were, in any case, clannish and reckoned up their relationships with great care. They drew long and elaborate family-trees with innumerable branches. In dealing with Hobbits it is important to remember who is related to whom, and in what degree. It would be impossible in this book to set out a family-tree that included even the more important members of the more important families at the time which these tales tell of. [EuroAristo?] The genealogical trees at the end of the Red Book of Westmarch are a small book in themselves, and all but Hobbits would find them exceedingly dull. Hobbits delighted in such things, if they were accurate: The liked to have books filled with things they already knew, set out fair and square with no contradictions." Tolkien, J.R.R., The Lord of the Rings (New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1994) p. 7.

Scottish flag
Pip Sheppard has Scottish Ancestors.

Using my ggg-grandparents' surnames (or the paper trail), I'm about 59% Scottish, 20% English, 6% German, 6% Welsh, 3% Cornish, 3% French, and 3% I just can't narrow down (Radden/Rodden), though see below. Most of my Scottish ancestry passed through Ulster before arriving in America and settling in the Blessed Realm. Scotland's influence was and is present in my life. Three of The Seven Sisters (Presbyterian churches in my home county) were founded by some of my Ulster-Scot ancestors.

This is pretty cool. Signers of the Declaration of Abroath from whom I'm directly descended:

Malise Strathearn | Walter Stewart | John (Stewart) Menteith | Alexander (Fraser) Fraser of Touchfraser and Cowie | Alexander Seton | James Douglas

DNA

My Y-DNA Terminal SNP is R-CTS13034. My original subclade was R-M239. L21_M529_S145 (R1b1a1a2a1a2c1) fits my paper trail: Brittany, Ireland, Scotland, Wales (except for Brittany).

My mitoDNA haplogroup is H2a2a1c.

Identified Ancestors

Grandparents - 100%
G-Grandparents - 100%
2x-Grandparents - 100%
3x-Grandparents - 100%
4x-Grandparents - 77% (and progressively worse after this!)

My pedigree collapse is dropping. In September 2019 it was 20.82. By June 2020, it had dropped to 14.42. As of March 2021, it stands at 13.82.

Breakthroughs

  • Biggest breakthrough of 2018: My Cornish ancestral lines. Thank you, WikiTree!
  • Biggest breakthroughs of 2019: the parents of my ancestor, William Lawing (Lewin) and the parents of Robert Smith.
  • Biggest breakthrough of 2020: none!

Here's to 2021 and another great year for discoveries!

Closest presidential cousin

Richard Nixon is a cousin - yes, THE Richard Nixon, and he is my closest presidential cousin (we are 7th cousins). We are descended from the same Quaker ancestor here in the States, Hugh Harry.

England Project's Orphan Trail

England Orphan Team
Pip Sheppard has completed the England Project's Orphan Trail.
In 2019, I completed the England Project's Orphan Trail! Mentors Ros and Lizzie got me through (talk about patience!), and I learned so much from them, not only about English sources, but about making a profile what it should be: well sourced with a good, narrative bio and inline citations.

Scotland Project's Tartan Trail

Scotland's Tartan Trail
Pip Sheppard is a graduate of the Scotland Tartan Trail II.
Scotland's Tartan Trail
Pip Sheppard is a graduate of the Scotland Tartan Trail III.
I completed Level Two and Three of the Tartan Trail under the guidance of Jackie in March of 2021. Jackie was a super guide: very knowledgeable and VERY patient! I learned so much under her guidance. My hat is off to her! As good as my experience was, I would recommend anyone with Scottish Roots to join the project and walk the Tartan Trail!

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Pip or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
  • Pip Sheppard: Family Tree DNA Y-DNA Test 838 markers, haplogroup R-CTS13034, FTDNA kit #770555, MitoYDNA ID T13649 [compare]
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • Pip Sheppard: Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test Full Sequence, haplogroup H2a2a1c, FTDNA kit #770555, MitoYDNA ID T13649 [compare]
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Pip:

Hi Pip!

As you have a Volga German Project member badge, I wanted to let you know that the Volga German Project will now operate as a Team under the Germany Project. To continue your participation in the Volga German Team, you'll need to join the Germany Project. No other changes are being made at this time - this is simply an administrative change.

Can I add you as a member of the Germany Project? I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks, Traci ~co-leader Germany Project

Hi Pip,

Just started here on the wiki tree. I have lots of information on my iPad app “Family Tree”. I was wondering if it was possible to merge that data with the wiki data other than manually.

Hello Pip!

I’m conducting the 6-month check in for the US Black Heritage Project. Because we are growing so fast, it’s not always possible for me to see what everyone’s working on.

I’d love to hear what you’ve been working on and if you are still happy being a part of the PIP team (perfectly named for you!). Members can change teams at any time. If you need something to work on, we now have a master task list here: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:US_Black_Heritage_Project_Tasklist

We now have a project badge! Hooray! As soon as I hear back from you that you’d like to continue with the project, I will add the badge to your profile.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Emma :-)

I'm still here! When I get finished with my PIP Voyage, I'm going to start a a page for all of the black and mulatto designated families and individuals that appear in the 1890 census for part of River Bend, Gaston County, North Carolina. Yes, that was the 1890 census. :-)
posted by Pip Sheppard
That will be awesome and will help add more connections. I love those rare and mysterious 1890 census records as much as I love the oops slave schedules where the enumerator put first names! :-) Emma

Hi, Ron,

On, this is kind of query you need to ask on our G2G Forum. (You’ll find the link in the drop down menu under “My WikiTree” on your profile.) I’ve had particular success asking for assistance there from our community. I believe you will, too!

Kind regards,

Thank you Pip for welcoming me as a new member. I am still trying to get the tree set up and finding my way around the site. I am hoping someone on here might have heard something about my parental grandfather Jack Pugh. Before he is 17 years of age and showing up in Texas he doesn't exist. I have added on my tree the parents names he used on his SS application. He ran away around the age of 13 is what I remember being told. We know from DNA we are Pugh's. I just want to find his family or something about him before the age of 17. Thanks to everyone for maybe helping me solve this 20 year mystery.
Hi, Annette! I think this would be best on our G2G Forum. Would you like me to post it there? (You can as easily: just clink on the “move to G2G” link and it’ll be ready to post.)

Kind regards,

Thankyou Pip. Still trying to navigate, but will becable to have a good look tonight. I am looking for my brothers and sisters, we were all separated when my father passed away in 1954. I have only met 2 siblings and I have 8 of them. I have been searching since 2016 on Ancestry with no information anywhere. So I am hoping there may be some relatives using this site.
Pip, thanks for the welcome and info on what you can help on. I have been researching my family lines for over 40 years. I kind of got burned out a couple of years ago. I was working as a family consultant at the Family History Center at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints here in Ft. Worth, Texas area, for 4 years every Saturday for 4 hours. I need jump back in to finish as much as I can before I get any older. Let me know if I can help you in any way. Linda

Linda, you are just the kind of genealogist we need here on WikiTree, and we are so glad you've joined. I, too, feel a little under the gun, so to speak, trying to get my family on WikiTree. I started when I was 11 and knew nothing about research or sources.

Pip, how did you come to be called Pip? It's a great name. I love it.

Years ago, I tried to name our daughter Philippa (so as to get to "Pippa" and "Pip" around the house) but, my wife wasn't having it. Eventually, I bought a dog and named him Pippin. When he's really naughty (chewing on the Christmas decorations etc) we can remonstrate with PEREGRINE TOOK YOU FOOL OF A TOOK! -- good times.

Cheers,

Yep, it’s a Tolkien inspired name. I wish I had named by daughter Philippa and called her Pippa. Thought of it too late!

Hi Pip,

It's that time of the year again: check-in time! As England Project Leaders, we like to check in with you every six months or so to see how things are progressing. Back in May, we didn't ask for a response due to the rapid emergence of Covid-19 because we understood that people's lives were changing rapidly. While we are still living in a Covid world, we do need to hear back from you this time around

First of all, how are you doing? What are you currently working on? Are you happy with the team(s) you're in, or would you like to change things up?

Secondly, we're looking for some feedback on the Google Group and our Discord server. Do you use either or both of these? If you don't use either, why not? Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve participation and collaboration, either generally or for you personally?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Lizzie, Amy, Joan

Hi, Pip  ;-)

The Ambassadors project has been reorganizing and is looking for those who have a membership at a genealogical society, to help in spreading the word about WikiTree.

We're working on ways to improve how WikiTree connects and interacts with genealogical and local history societies. This is the kind of thing we want to do:

  • Liaise with societies: set up your local society with a free-space page and some WikiTree materials as part of a package.
  • Use social media to promote what societies are offering on WikiTree.
  • Encourage bloggers to blog about societies and the resources available to them on WikiTree.

Are you interested in participating in some way? Do you have some ideas to share?

posted by Heather Mahaney
Hi Heather!

Yes, you can. All you will need to do is to download a gedcom from Ancestry (instructions are on that site). Then you will need to upload that same gedcom on WikiTree. Now, it may take a full day to process your gedcom, but you will receive an email when it's ready.

Then, you will need to go through the GEDcompare process to make sure that there are no matches before you start adding your profiles from the gedcom. Here's the link to this process:

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:GEDCOMpare

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any further assistance.

Hi Pip,

As you will have seen, we have been doing some restructuring in the US Southern Colonies Project and are now organising ourselves into different teams. We have also changed the criteria for membership. Please have a look at the new project pages, and let me know whether you would like to remain in the project and, if so, which team(s) you would like to be in.

Please can you also send me your e-mail address. I can then make sure you are introduced to your Team Leaders and are in the Google Group.

Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the US Southern Colonies Project that you respond to these check-ins. We’re really excited for the future of the project and hope that you decide to be a part of it with us moving forwards.

Many thanks,
