Pip won the October 2018 Integrators Challenge!

Going back six generations, I'm between 50-60% Scottish by surnames (though see below). Most of my Scottish ancestry passed through Ulster before arriving in America.

As of October 2018 I have a 15.91% pedigree collapse.

My haplogroup is R-M269, the dominant subclade of R1b. The "refined" DNA estimate from Ancestry indicates the following:

England, Wales & Northwestern Europe 69% (Increased by 33%)
Ireland and Scotland 21% (Decreased by 3%)
Norway 6% (Refined from: Scandinavia 8%)
Sweden 4% (Refined from: Scandinavia 8%)

Biggest breakthrough of the year (2018)? My Cornish ancestral lines. Thank you, WIkiTree!

Richard Nixon is a cousin - yes, THE Richard Nixon, and my closest presidential cousin. We are descended from the same Quaker ancestor here in the States.

This year (2018), I participated my first Source-a-Thon, and it was a blast as well as a learning experience. Gillian and Janet and the Sandringham Strollers were a super team to work with. I'm looking forward to the next one!

Hello, Pip! Thank you for the welcome. I tried the link in your message, but it leads to an error page (I clicked it while on the website, not from an email).

I already have a question, no surprise! How do I link my uploaded gedcom to my wiki personal family tree?

Cheers, Karen

Hello Everyone, especially Pip Shepard if your still online.

I’m new to Wikitree, so please be patient with me. I am very excited to be here though. I had no idea that Wikitree Volunteer system worked like it does, or I would have joined a couple of years ago! I belong to My Heritage, and I try messaging people, but they just don’t seem very interested, or it’s their wife’s side of the family so they don’t really care. Lol. This is something that everyone can really benefit from. Now I need to upload my file...

The message you just sent had a "how to" link. The link said the page does not exist.

This page does not exist.

I'm just beginning to navigate and have questions about how to merge the GEDCOM tree that I just uploaded with my profile tree that only consists of me. Do I have to manually enter all 3,000 members from my gedcom to my profile or is there an easier way? Will names of living people be private?

It seems like our conversation would be more fluid in a private message system instead of individual posts on each other's profiles.

I clearly have a lot more to learn.

Thanks for your help.

Cheers, Jennifer

Hi, Pip. I see we are 11th cousins once removed. I checked after seeing you, too, are related to Richard Nixon. The system seems to think I am related to 19 presidents but I haven't yet vetted those lines...too busy uncovering direct ancestors like the Ricks line.

Hi Pip

I noticed you chose our Integrators Challenge this month and added 27 entries according to tracker, awesome!!

Could you do us a favor though, and go here where you signed up officially: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/694448/wikitreers-join-the-integrators-challenge-for-october-2018 and tell us what question you worked on to get the additional profiles set up. That way you will get full credit and perhaps win for the month of Oct.

And if you can please add your name and WikiTree ID to the participant's page for us here: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Integrators_Challenge

Thank you and Good Luck!! Dorothy ~ Integrators Project Coordinator

Greetings: Family Search has been great in locating the past members of the family, would be nice to have a way to import the data.

The question I have is about gedcom and 23 and me, what am I to expect to see from 23 and me and the tree? Gedcom uses a new link to process the new data from 23 and me so the url does not find the ID.

I am still in the process of expanding the tree and have invited others to fill in the holes plus add images to the file. Next step is to add a little bio. Made a trip to two cemeteries last week to learn a little more information. Thanks John Hammes
