I was born and grew up in Sydney, Australia. I have been doing family history now for nearly 20 years. All my family lines migrated to Australia (mainly Sydney) from the British Isles (England, Scotland, and Ireland) between 1835 and 1870. I have 1 convict in my tree and an ancestor from Unst in the Shetland Islands. Many of my ancestors came to Australia as "Assisted Immigrants", courageously grasping the opportunity for a better life. One line of my family was in Barbados during the 17th century and early 18th century. They were all adventurers.
Nearly all my family lived close to the sea, and that must be why I love the water. My Thomas family lived in Falmouth and St Mawes in Cornwall, which is almost as beautiful as Sydney with its harbour. My husband and I have a yacht which we live on when we aren't working.
I have travelled over to the UK twice now to do more research and to visit the places where my family came from. I spent time in the National Archives at Kew, and various County Record Offices. But most of my research has been done on the internet. Hooray for the internet!
I still have some intractable dead ends. I love collaborating with others to try to break through my own and others mysteries.

The only profile I manage that I need to keep at Protected Status is https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Pippin-265. There is a controversy about the spelling of LNAB (explained in his biography).
During his lifetime his legal papers used Pippin - some of his descendants now use Pippen (including mine). I asked for Protection on the profile of Pippin-265 to keep the spelling as it was during his lifetime.
Thanks for your hard work on Wikitree, I really appreciate all of it.

If families are imported / duplicated a lot sometimes this is the only way (so adding the UnverifiedFamily template with links to the profiles involved) to prevent members are adding or importing them all over again.
Looking at the 'sources' (or the lack of sources for the parents) I personally think it's ok to remove the parents now, if you keep the template or perhaps just a note with links to the previous attached parents in and a post or note at their profiles with a link to their by some supposed daughter's profile also, everyone can see the profiles for the previous 'supposed' parents/daughter are/is already present but no longer attached because there just are no sources that prove the relationship.
Greets and have a wonderful day !
ps: I removed the parents and added links and posts to the profiles involved now:)
