Greg is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
Interested in how categories could be used to leverage search
I have recently come to find out that I am not a descendant of Peregrine White, as my family had believed for generations (DNA has disproved parentage of one of my ancestors), but I am still very interested in the era and the people.
Interested in the Popes and historical figures in general.
My surname, ironically the line I have done the least research on as of yet, but would like to know more.
I am related to the White family through my mother. For generations we were thought to have been descended from Peregrine White, of the Mayflower. However DNA has disproven our connection. I am very interested in finding accurate family information and perhaps discovering the correct parentage of my ancestor.

Hi Greg,

Happy to help with the popes project. Data cleansing is in my blood so I'll work through systematically. It used to be my livelihood until I retired so I have built up a number of techniques for ensuring data quality.

I see from your profile you recently married so congratulations and Best wishes.

Nice work on the profile of Jonathan White (White-2097). Thanks.

I did a bit of sourcing on your tree. I also discovered the maiden name of Both Don Allen Henry's Mother and wife.

His wife maiden name is Pirl His mothers maiden name is Heimebaugh

In each case put in the appropriate source and left notes.

for Malin-400 and Malin-207, the reason the wife/kids are not there is that when i started to add her (Catherine Kate Elsey) she showed as already existing and had spouse John Malin (Malin-207)

i was working down from the parents (his mother amy anne mcdonald is a cousin), and i have the same children for this couple that you have for them, the birth date is off because i have no good source for him and just use about 1810.

it makes no sense for me to create the wife and children to show a match to your records, just so we have to merge them all.

You said "The other William White (White-2029) matches the vitals more closely to the sources I have access to. "

Please post your sources, If you need to copy them from

Please do not use 1.) it is not a source, 2.) they cannot be viewed by everybody. Thank You.

Greg, Welcome to the Mayflower Project.

Alexander White is a controversial ancestor. Work on his profile will require extra coordination - both in g2g and in the message section of the profile. I am very glad you joined.

Hi Gregory,

I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! This certification requires participation in a project related to the profiles you wish to edit. I see you are interested in Mayflower history . Why don't you stop by the Mayflower project, (currently led/coordinated by Becky S.), to see how you can participate? I'll let the leaders know you are newly certified!

Let me know if you need help with anything. We are glad to have you on board!

Hi Greg,

I feel for you. I've had family myths about heroic ancestors destroyed by research. Anyhow, you are now a confirmed member of WikiTree! Thank you for volunteering, and I wish you luck connecting to your Shipleys and Whites, who have their own secret adventurous history.

Have fun and ask for help if you need it! WikiTree members are always eager to offer guidance to a fellow genealogist. 

If you need additional help, our Mentors Project is a friendly bunch of volunteers who will be glad to assist you with WikiTree-specific problems.

See you in the branches --

Hi Gregory,

A warm welcome to the WikiTree family! The initial email from us has helpful links that will get you started on WikiTree, which is not like any genealogy site you’ve ever used and it is FREE. WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all work together as a BIG collaborative team!

What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree? When you confirm your email address, you’ll have an opportunity to volunteer and tell us about your genealogical interests.

Once you volunteer, one of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way!

We’re really glad you’re here. More importantly, have fun growing your family tree and connecting to persons with the same interest.

Ludwig :)
