Biography

Illuminated Book
Amelia Utting Successfully completed the England Project's pre-1500 Prep.
Project Logo
Amelia has been a member of the England Project for over 1,000 days.

I was born in Hastings, New Zealand, in July 2002.[1] Both of my parents (Cameron and Erin Utting, née James) were from Auckland, and we moved back in July 2003, where we've lived ever since. Some of my hobbies outside of the world of genealogy include history, mythology, languages, reading, writing, and embroidery.

As of March 2021, I am attending the University of Auckland and pursuing a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Classical Studies & Ancient History.

I am currently reading J.R.R Tolkien's The Fall of Númenor and listening to my playlist of classical music.

Amelia participated in the England Project’s Pub Crawl.

As well as researching my own family, I dedicate a fair amount of time to helping others—both with navigating WikiTree, and navigating their family histories.

I am an active member of the England, European Aristocrats, France, Ireland, and New Zealand projects.

In order to help WikiTree run smoothly, I am also a member of the Categorisation, Connectors, Data Doctors, Roll of Honour, Notables, and Unknowns projects.

Everyone who works on these projects and helps to contribute to WikiTree's fantastic collaborative environment are amazing people, and I consider it an honour to work alongside them.


Digital Afterlife

In the event of my passing or inability to continue my work on the branches of our tree through physical or mental illness, I place the profiles I manage into the hands of the WikiTree Admin. If any member(s) of my family have the desire to continue my work and contribute to the health of our tree, I ask that they be allowed to manage those profiles and have the guidance to continue in the proper manner. — Utting-102 00:02, 6 February 2022 (UTC)

Hi Amelia,

Thank you for all the work that you have done for the Scotland Project. As you have not responded to our recent check in messages I presume that you wish to leave the project.

If you'd like to re-join us in the future, you can do so by replying to our current G2G Welcome post which is linked from the project page at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Scotland

All the best Sheena

Hi Sheena,

I'm very sorry I didn't reply sooner – your message came right as I was beginning to tackle my final assignments at uni for the semester before exam revision kicked in. I'd definitely be interested in remaining with the project :)

Regards, Amelia

If you are currently participating in more than one team we would appreciate you ranking them in their order of importance to you, from highest priority to lowest. This information will be helpful as we consider possible future changes to our team structure.
  2. In the past, the project has had a very minimal membership requirement (one contribution per year) for badged members to meet. Do you believe this is adequate, or should this requirement be increased? What do you believe would be a reasonable commitment to expect from all project members?

Please choose one of the following options: a) I normally spend 1-5 hours per month helping achieve my team’s goals. b) I normally spend 6-10 hours per month helping achieve my team’s goals. c) I spend over 10 hours per month helping achieve my team’s goals. d) I am not able to contribute every month but have spent approximately ________ hours during the past year improving Irish profiles.

Many thanks for all that so many of you have contributed to the project in the past year, and very special thanks to those who answered the project’s call and gave generously of their time to be part of Team Seanchaithe during the most recent connect-a-thon.

Hi Amelia

We are delighted to announce a new Profile Improvements Team namely the England Tangled Families Team which will be formed by merging the Arborists, Gedcoms and Unknown Teams,

As we know tangled families are created from old GEDCOM’s which cover many generations resulting in the need to merge profiles and having to disconnect others together with finding unknown spouses and family members.

The merging of the existing three teams into one exciting new team will hopefully reduce duplications and definitely will increase collaboration between you our experienced and dedicated members.

Team Leader for the England Tangled Families Team will be Fran Weidman who has agreed to manage the team bringing her excellent knowledge and experience from creating and managing the Unknowns Team together with Fran’s five year membership of the England Project.

Currently as a member of one or more of the named teams we are asking you to join our new amalgamated Tangled Families Team and letting us know by contacting Joan Williams or Malc Rowlands through Discord Messaging, England Project Google Group or Private WT Message if you want to join our new team.

Kind regards

Joan and Malc

It's time for the One Place Studies Project Check-In!

We've put together a survey for you to fill out to check in with you, it will only take a moment as there are only a few questions. Filling out the survey lets us know you are still interested in coordinating your study and provides an opportunity for you to share any suggestions you may have for the project.

If you have decided to step away from your study, please reply to this comment to that effect.

Hi Amy, I'm happy with what I'm doing on the project. Thanks! :)
Hi Amy,

Thank you for your message, yes I am very happy to stay with the project and happy with the teams that I am on xxx

Hi Amy,

I hope you don't mind that I've joined you to work on E. J. Arbuthnot in the boat race challenge - I've created a profile for him; hopefully it won't be too difficult to connect him up as his father was a Baronet

Best wishes John

Wow. Just wow! That's all I can say. Thank you for your massive contributions to growing our shared tree. Emma :-)
Hi Amy, thanks for your comment on my profile page. Just wanted to let you know that I am working away behind the scenes, enjoying wikitree and adding to profiles all over the place. When I first graduated fomthe orphan trail I remember gettting an email f I’m someone asking whether I’d be willing to fill in a survey to see where I wanted to be placed in the England project, but I never heard from the, again after I replied and I expect it was just an oversight. I keep an eye out and enjoy reading everyone’s comments, and am still willing to volunteer where I’m needed. Maddy x

Re: My involvement with Ruth (Batten) Oliver:

At a guess, it was one of those "rabbit-hole-chasing" type days. I have OLIVERs in my own paternal ancestry, so I expect I did some wandering among the databases! It was Dec 17 - I've slept since then! so cannot exactly remember... ;)

Amy, thanks for the help with the Cary/Carey profiles, we are a MESS as is, without getting any help, LOL! There are a few generations that truly need some Genealogical society to take on and help while some of us direct descendants are still around regards, Mark

Thank you Amy, I sure appreciate your work. I see no connection to Catherine other than the royal family of Spain stayed there and I assume with other members of that family which I am looking for. I am looking for info. on the Lord of Fuencastin.
