Agenda - Vision - Goals

Many years ago I read a note in someone’s genealogy file that their goal was to "find all of the ancestors of their grandchildren and all of their descendants". Unfortunately I did not write down the person's name, it was a long time ago, today I would add it to their biography with a date and source note. However, I have thought for a long time that it was a reasonable way to define the scope of my research. Many years ago I also realized it was not possible. I only manage about 55,000 family names and it is not nearly enough. Now, I have found Wikitree and realize that maybe it is possible, if everyone works for the best possible system.

Profile - Bio - Intro

Phil Smith

I live in Silicon Valley, grew up and was educated in California. I am retired. I am too lazy to enter a proper biography so I attached an old resume.

I have worked on genealogy since the early 1970's when I inherited my grandfather's Herman Willis Smith notes and diaries. Currently I am working on family lines for both my immediate family and many others who have asked me to look into someone.

When I was still working one of the suggestions for job interview questions was "If you had to describe yourself with one word what would that be?" I was ready with an answer: Polly-dimensional. To which I expected the reply - "But that is not a word."; and I would have said, "Exactly". Of course I was never asked - so I had to write it here.

An old resume is included - if you are really bored and have nothing else to read.

OK - working on a biography -

Early Life

I, Philip Wayne Smith, son of Philip G. and Myrtle Edrie (Roach) Smith, was born on 11 January 1947 in Riverside, Riverside County, California. My father was a printer and printed a birth announcement card.

Birth Announcement Card.

I appeared on the census of 17 May 1950 in the home of my parents at 839 N. Main St., Riverside, Riverside County, California. My grandmother was living with us. My paternal grandparents were listed next to us.[1]

Early Education

I attended Fremont Elementary in Riverside, Central Jr. High, and Riverside Polytechnic. I was in the ROTC for two years at Poly, the honor Day Ceremonies on 10 May 1963 show that I received a Bronze Metal - Professor of Military Science - interesting I do not remember it and can only guess it was for academic performance, I was not very good at anything else in ROTC.


I learned to cook when I was very young. My mother starting working with my father and told my sister and I that we were to cook dinner. She wrote out detailed instructions - what to fix, how to fix it and what time to do each thing. I was cooking dinner for the family of 6 when I was 11 years old. Mary and I were to trade off, one doing dishes the other cooking. She hated it, and her cooking reflected her feelings. I was hungry and so I cooked. Since then, if I can find a recipe, I can cook it.

My grandmother, Edrie, raised chickens and thought it was important that I learn how to kill and clean them, so it was also something I did at about the same age. I still have the the butcher knife she bought for me to kill chickens.

I was told by my brother that he and my sisters would talk me into making biscuits. I don't remember them doing so, but I know I made biscuits. They were good, and still are when I make them, but not quite as good as my grandmother's.

First Jobs

Paperboy of the Week.

The first job I had was a paper route, it was a bicycle route and I had about 75 customers, that took the afternoon paper. At that time almost everyone took the paper and as the most of the homes were in a tract I was able to complete the route in less than an hour. I later became the station manger for 15 carriers and then moved to the mail room at the Press-Enterprise, Riverside, California. The mail room is where the newspapers are bundled and loaded on trucks for distribution. I was there, working at night, for two years while I was in Junior College.

When I moved to San Jose, California to go to school I worked at a number of different jobs. One was as a meter reader and maintenance man at the water company in Niles, California.


Registered for the draft on January 12, 1965. Received notice to report on May 20, 1969, and was given an extension to June to finish the semester at San Jose State. Inducted US Army, June 18, 1969. Completed basic training at Fort Ord, Monterey, California. Completed MP training at Fort Gordon, Georgia, January 1970. Service in Co. B, 504 MP Battalion of the 18th Military Police Brigade in the Republic of Vietnam, February 13, 1970 to February 11, 1971. Promoted to SP5 December 23, 1970 with a 94B20 MOS. (Cook)

Spent most of my tour managing a mess hall in DaNang as a first cook, the only training I received was by another cook who spent two weeks teaching me the job before he was transferred. Supervised a staff of 50 Vietnamese and 4 soldiers. Prepared and served meals for about 1,000. The mess hall served US Army and US Marine units as well as the prison at DaNang. I was told by a visiting Major, who was responsible for bring supplies into Vietnam, that the meal he had just eaten at at our mess hall was the best he had eaten in Vietnam. We were serving liver and onions.

Discharged February 11, 1971.


I was told much later by my daughter, Erin, that perhaps I should have continued in school as it was something I really enjoyed. Perhaps she was correct. When I returned from Vietnam I returned to school at San Jose State and finished my degree. I realized that the job market required graduate school and I applied to the Social Science department at San Jose and the Statistics department at California State at Hayward. I was accepted at both. I talked to the department heads and asked them the same question. "What is the job market like?" At San Jose I was told, well most of the students are already teaching. At Hayward, Dr. Park, told me "I can get a job for all of my graduates." I took statistics, and Dr. Park was not only a great teacher he was right.

After college I worked for Health Application Systems and then the California Trucking Association. While working full time at the Trucking Association I returned to school at the Haas School of Business, Berkeley, California.

In 1981 I went to work for Viking Freight System, Inc., Santa Clara, California. I was there until 1997.

Books and Authors

I had a difficult time learning to read - I remember with a great deal of pain a first grade teacher correcting me over and over in front of a reading class as I could not seem to be able to remember the difference in various words - I think that "they", "those" and "them" were a special problem. By the third grade something happened and I was reading sixth grade books, those are the ones I used for book reports, there were a large number of other books that I suspected would not meet with approval and I was reading them as well. In high school I took a speed reading course. I was reading at over 5,000 words a minute, when tested. I did not actually read that fast most of the time, but when I need to work my way through a large about of material I am able to do it quickly. I read everything - these authors and books are some of my favorites. - In no particular order.:

  1. Robert A. Heinlein - everything - Glory Road and The Moon is a Harsh Mistress should be read by everyone.
  2. Carl von Clausewitz - On War
  3. Sun-Tzu - The Art of Warfare
  4. Robert B. Parker - all of his are fun
  5. Robert Ruark - Something of Value
  6. Charles M. Doughty - Travels in Arabia Deserta - the most difficult book I have read and worth it.
  7. John Steinbeck - everything
  8. William H. Prescot - History of the Conquest of Mexico and History of the Conquest of Peru - this should be read before reading
  9. Hugh Thomas - Conquest, Montezuma, Cortez, and the Fall of Old Mexico
  10. T. E. Lawrence - Seven Pillars of Wisdom - should read before reading:
  11. Jeremy Wilson - Lawrence of Arabia - the Authorized Biography of T. E. Lawrence.
  12. Leon Trotsky - My Life
  13. Rudyard Kipling - Kim and and all those wonderful poems.
  14. Nevil Shute - Chequer Board and most everything else, his early books seem the best.
  15. Farley Mowat - And No Birds Sang, the most powerful book I have read about WWII.


In January of 2007 a large number of cousins and family members set up a surprise birthday party for my 60th birthday.


I have done cross stitch since I was quite young, my grandmother, Edrie, probably taught me though I do not remember her doing so. The earliest cross stitch I have is a table cloth that she started and I finished probably by the time I was 13 or 14. Later my sister, Mary, made a lace boarder for it. In 2021 I gave the table cloth to Jennifer (Smith) Avedissian. Photos of the table cloth with the lace border are in Mary's images.

Table Cloth - 1 of 3
I was very sick with pneumonia when I was in the 8th grade. While I was in the hospital and later I completed a large pattern of ducks. When I was in China I found a set of cross stitch kits and have completed many. In 2019 during the Covis-19 pandemic I started another kit. It took two years - it is 23 by 46 inches. This image is what the completed kit looked like without a frame.
Koi and Flowers - Phil Smith - 29 Sep. 2021

In Junior High School I took wood shop for one third of year. All of the boys took woodshop, metal shop and drafting. Girls took home economics classes. In Viet Nam there was a small library and I started reading about wood working and started a subscription to a wood working magazine. I continued the subscription when I returned home. I found that I like designing and then building furniture. One table I did was from pine that my grandfather brought from Arkansas to California when he moved about 1946. The lumber was in storage in his attic. I finally worked out a plan to use all of the pine and built this entry table in the late 1990's.

Greetings, Philip, or should I say Cousin Philip (9th, once removed)! I am responding to your request to merge some Duty's...(somehow that just does not sound right)

While I can see that you are quite diligent in your research, I can find no background (sources) on our friend Duty-135 you have some info I don't see--it looks to me to be completely unsourced? Thanks so much! (Re: merge of Duty-432/Duty-135) I will continue to poke around a bit, although it's not much fun from my phone...

Phillip, hello. Regarding the Amy Whitney and Amy Payson recent merge request. Thanks for recently providing the Savory/Calnek source on a LNAB of Whitney. I'm completing the requested merge.

Amy Payson-271 and spouse David Randall-5236 Amy Whitney-980 and spouse David Randall-995

Thank you for the work you posted on Aurora Spencer and Julia Whitney. You cleared the confusion that i was in. Much appreciated!

We are actually 17th Cousins through Robert Darcy (1391-1448).

Thanks for merging Frances Sumerall. We have interesting connections. I lived in Silicon Valley (Mountain View) working for NASA Ames (Moffett Field) as a Rocket Scientist. My surname should also be "Smith." A child was sired by Christopher Smith and Elizabeth Mauldin in 1760. Since Elizabeth never married, she gave the kid "Mauldin" for last name. Christopher Smith happened to be her sister's husband. Check out my tree at Mauldin-688.

Melinda Cheatham Bolchoz, thankyou, Phillip it's nice to have someone who is gifted in this ❤ My info is full of holes and I appreciate your contribution..You r my first response, exciting
Hi, Philip,

I noticed that you changed the birth and death dates on Borgersdatter-5. Do you happen to have sources that you can add to support those estimated dates?

Thanks, Laura

Hi Philip.

Nice Wikitree page. We're 7th cousins through David Britain Dodge.

Farley Mowat's Wikitree ID is Mowat-164 in case you'd like to link him in your favorite book list.

Dear Philip,

Thank you so much for your help with Sibyl North and others! What a lovely surprise. I’m quite the newbie, so your expertise is most welcome.

Can you possibly help me understand how it is that the recent merger affecting my 6th Great grand Aunt Euphemia (Radley) Badgely--( Radley-265 and Radley-74) was completed by you without my being first consulted as one of the profile managers involved? I am not necessarily objecting to the merger, just noting what appears to be an important glitch in the system. Best. Mike Bissell [Bissell-517]

Phillip Smith can you help me with John Young. My tree is reflecting the wrong John young. Don't know why or how my tree was altered. Please let me know if you can help. Kind regards

I don't know the John Young you want to fix. He is not related to me. My John McCullough Young was born 1739, had one wife, Mary Polly Cotter. He died 1824. He was born in South Carolina, not Ireland

Philip, thank you very much for straightening out the two Jeremiah Crandalls: i appreciate it very much. It had bothered me for a long time. I adopted the profile of Jeremiah Crandall, son of Eber and Mary, as soon as i saw that it had been oprhaned. Thanks again for your great work here!
Philip, the Appreciation Team thanks for you for efforts toward making our Shared Tree the best it can be with your 1000+ contributions during August 2019. You are an important part of what we are all about!

Thanks for suggesting the merger for Anne Quarles Matthews, my Calhoun-2608 with Calhoun-193. I think there are serious problems with Calhoun-193, some of which I detail in a Note at my Calhoun-2608. I had worked on it long and hard to the point of being very frustrated. If you don't mind I am going to do an Unmerged match at this time. I will also do the same with her husband, Isaac Matthews. I intended to look at it closer, within a few years, maybe, after retiring, including a trip to the areas in Virginia and South Carolina where they lived. Thanks again.

Thanks Philip,

For your note to merge Shuck 317 into it was a duplicate. It took me a while but I think I got the confusion figured out...and now they are one! Regards, Joyce Ferguson, aka Jakeway-65

Dear, Philip, thanks for proposing the merge of Sims-5125 and Sims-64.

The bio of -5125 is definitely NOT the individual of profile -64, but let's merge anyway to simplify the tree.

Actually, I had created -5125, feeling cocky I could corroborate and document a different line of the Sims family but hit an immediate brick wall and later learned that such an individual may not have existed, based on subsequent DNA confirmations from that line of Sims family!

I've since become much more conservative in profile creation, and was embarrassed to have created this profile.

So I'll delete the bio and sources, and let's merge. Problem solved! :)

Best, Mark
