Pip won the October 2018 Integrators Challenge!
Pip Sheppard participated with Super Southern Sweepers during the 2019 Scan-a-Thon, scanning and uploading ? items to profiles.

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. A little bit further out, but the same line as Nixon, is George H W Bush.

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!

Pip, thanks for welcome. Just getting started. I thought I replied yesterday. I am trying to go back another generation on my g grandfather Edward Melia. His first son was an Edward, so following Irish naming rules his father may be Edward. My Edward was born unknown county in Ireland about 1838, came in 1860s without family I think, then clear records in NY. I struck out on other main sites. Can wikitree help?

Thanks Pip..

I have been trying to upload the GEDCOM file unsuccessfully - too big apparently - but I've emailed info@wikitree.com to see what they suggest. I'm SO hoping someone is related via my DNA. My Gr Grandfather Jones and Gr Grandmother Persse seems to have utterly disappeared into the clouds of the past. Thanks for contacting me Cherie Kravec nee Jones.
