Biography

Introduction

"All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust."—J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

I'm Amy, a sixteen-year-old student with a passion for genetics and genealogy. As of June 2019, I am as active as I can be on WikiTree. Alongside my personal projects, I am one of the Leaders of the England Project and the Project Coordinator for the Counties Team, where I am also the Team Leader for Warwickshire. I am also one of the Leaders of the European Aristocrats project. Aside from my leadership responsibilities, I am a WikiTree Ranger and a Mentor. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns—even if I cannot answer you with confidence, I will do my best to put you in contact with people that can.

Early Life

Amy Utting is 73% English, Welsh, and Northwestern European.

I was born in Hastings, New Zealand in July 2002. My parents are Cameron and Erin Utting (née James), who are an electrician and an accounts assistant respectively.[1] As both of my parents were born and raised in Auckland, we relocated up to Auckland in July 2003 and we've lived here ever since. As an introvert, my hobbies tend to stray towards things which don't involve a lot of socialising, which means that I can be awkward at times (my apologies if I am!). Some of these hobbies include history, mythology, genetics, languages, and politics. I was raised in a multi-religious household (Cathlocism and Wicca), which I personally think gives me a unique perspective.

Since 2012, I have suffered from repeated knee dislocations. I have dislocated my right knee thrice, and my left knee once. I had ligament reconstruction surgery on my right knee in 2015. In terms of mental health, I have been diagnosed with both Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). My OCD means that I do get quite pedantic about categorisation, which I suppose comes in handy in some ways.

Journey into Genealogy

English flag
Amy Utting has English ancestors.
Amy Utting has Irish ancestors.

In 2014, after my grandfather (Allen James) passed away, I joined my family in sorting through the belongings left in his retirement home. This is where I found the Kilgour Family Book (written and published by my second cousin, Kathryn), which details the history of my grandmothers side of the family. This book is what sparked my interest in genealogy and my family history. I am limited in my resources, but I try my best to add as accurate information as I can. My family holds many mysteries, and I hope to have them unravelled eventually.

Research Statistics

This is a table of my ancestor research statistics. Note that not only is the table still in progress, but many of my more recent ancestors are harder to "Genealogically Define" due to restrictions on vital records being available if they are dated within the last 100 years, and neither of my parents and both of my grandmothers are still currently living.

Also, the numbers represented may not match the numbers on WikiTree. Some attached parents are "X Unknown", while others might have several generations of ancestors however there is some speculation in regards to parentage. I have only included numbers accurate to what I know to be fairly certain information.

The percentages have been rounded for readability. All of the percentages in the columns following On WikiTree are out of the number of profiles in said On WikiTree column.

Project Involvement

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.

Improved Profiles

This is a table of profiles that I've written biographies for that I'm particularly proud of. I hope that this will expand and grow as my experience expands and grows.

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. — Amy Utting 02:30, 29 February 2020 (UTC)

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

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... ;)

Hi Amy

Can you help please. I have entered my uncle Charles Gordon Darnell - and as a male. The Biography under the entry comes out saying "she...". How do I get the system to recognise this is a male. Was happy to take his wife etc.

Many thanks
