"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 November 2018, 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

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. 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.

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, French Roots, Irish Roots, 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 improved 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. — Utting-102 05:46, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

Hi Amy, for the familial category I renamed it to include your Wiki ID. For some reason, it was the only category in your personal structure that did not start with your Wiki ID!

Hi Amy, you are doing a fantastic job and inspire me with your youthful vigor. I noticed the Russian Romanov children all have rather boring bios and was hoping you might tackle that someday. Keep up the great work, we need more like you.

Thank you so much for cleaning up several profiles for which I’m the profile manager (Data Error 835). I imported a large GEDCOM file from Ancestry a couple of years ago and a few hundred new profiles were created in the process, most of which had no source documentation other than the reference to my file. I’ve since managed to clean a lot of these up but it’s still a work in progress, and your help is greatly appreciated!!

Hi Amy,

Thanks for the heads-up about "Frank Arthur" Williams. You are correct, there is no evidence that could distinguish them. I merged the two profiles.

Hi Amy

Please go ahead with the Merge of the two Walter (George) Walkers. I am not connected to these Walkers so hopefully Paul Walker is in their bloodline and is best qualified to do the merge if you are unable.

Excellent work! I see you are quite a young genealogist - I didn't start until I was quite middle-aged as I really wasn't interested!

Best wishes

Kay [Margaret Kable] Walker

I was born in Wellington, NZ and now live in Adelaide, South Australia
