Biography

Illuminated Book
Amelia Utting Successfully completed the England Project's pre-1500 Prep.
Amelia has participated in 26 out of 52 weeks during the 2019 52 Ancestors Challenge.

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 stayed ever since. Some of my hobbies outside of the world of genealogy include history, mythology, languages, reading, writing, and embroidery.

In January 2021, I legally changed my first and middle names from Amy Rose to Amelia Rosemarie. Beginning in March of that year, I will be persuing both a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts with a double major in Psychology and Classical Studies & Ancient History, simultaenously, at the University of Auckland.

I am currently reading Bridget Collins' The Betrayals (as of 09 Jan) and listening to my playlist of classical music.

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

Project Logo
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.

Improved Profiles

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)

Kia ora, Amelia

I’m wondering how changes to the New Zealand Project are coming along too. It’s been ten months since any members were added. Is there going to be any opportunity to provide input into the structure? Richard and I cobbled together something just before the last project checkin, but nothing has happened since then. My current concern is the opening of living notables which may happen soon if G2G is anything to go by. I presume NZ will have a few particularly JA, the current PM, who looks as if she will qualify.

Hi Amelia

Thank you for joining the Mighty Oaks for the Clean-A-Thon and congratulations on your work during the CAT what an amazing result for the Mighty Oaks we fixed  32,841 suggestions. 

Altogether the teams fixed a grand total of 233,558 profile suggestions.  We hope you had fun while cleaning the tree. 

For the template to add to your profile go to https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Template:Clean-a-Thon  you will need to amend it to this year. See the Mighty Oaks page

See you later in the year for the Connect-A-Thon

Hi Amelia,

Thank you so much for all your contributions to WikiTree in the last six months, and especially to the Wales Project. It’s been wonderful to have you as part of the team as we work together to increase the quality and quantity of Welsh Profiles.

You don’t seem to have selected which team(s) you would like to be on. Please have a look at the project page: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Wales and let me know your choices so I can introduce you to your Team Leader(s). Do you have any questions? What can we do to support you? Do you want to continue in the Wales Project moving forwards?

Please can you also private message me your e-mail so I can add you to the Google group.

I look forward to hearing back from you with all the above.

Thanks once again,

Olivia, Project Coordinator for Wales :-)

Hi Olivia :)

I thought I'd mentioned it to Lizzie - it must not have been recorded somewhere. I'd like to hide away in Monmouthshire please :D

Any news on the NZ Project and if it is going to be reactivated? And if so, what will be the parameters?
Hi Lianne,

The project is still operating, just not currently accepting new members. Due to several disruptions (such as a global pandemic :D) I'm still in the midst of tracking down all of the relevant FSPs that need project management and adjusting the current project structure, but it is certainly still in the works! May I ask what you mean by parameters?

Regards, Amelia

posted by Amelia Utting
Parameters, just curious if this is going to change. The boundaries, scope of the current Project (as noted on the current page).

On another note (though possibly related): I recently added a profile for a Maori woman of local note (circa 1805 to 1885) and noticed there wasn't a lot of recognition for Maori contributions to NZ history and society. The only category available is for Maori iwi, and I just wonder if there's scope to not just have categories for colonists (which seems very colonial!) but more inclusive categories that don't just refer to pakeha way of doing things. I don't have any suggestions per se, but think consideration should be given to this. How do we acknowledge mana of the individuals whose profiles have been added to WikiTree?

What I found extremely difficult was to work out what iwi to place this profile in, and I frankly gave up, as I do not have the knowledge to do this.

Hi Lianne,

While the current project page will be rewritten once the changes have been made (to reflect them), I can say that the project's scope will always be to focus on any and all profiles within New Zealand, if that makes sense.

I can't detail the changes in their entirety, but I do definitely want to work on New Zealand's current categories and also include a greater focus on Maori profiles and genealogy. I also lack the knowledge to uncover which iwi someone might belong to, however, so I can't help much on a personal level in that respect. Of course, one large challenge with Maori genealogy overall is that as a culture which places a large focus on oral history, it may be difficult to provide sources within WikiTree's guidelines for some Maori ancestral lines. Once the changes have mostly been put into effect and the structure of the project is clearer, I'm definitely hoping to coordinate with both the WT Team and potentially some local historians in order to figure out the best way to approach this.

Regards, Amelia

Kia Ora Amy

Do you know whom I would contact to get Hawkes Bay in the drop down location menu selector changed to Hawke’s Bay with an apostrophe? It creates error suggestions and I have quite a number to fix. I’m also wondering if it would be worth asking for the Editbot to do a blanket fix on existing profiles. What do you think?

Fiona

posted by Fiona McMichael
Kia ora Fiona,

I honestly don't know how the location selector is run, but I'd say the best bet would be Ales Trtnik. I definitely think that suggesting Editbot be used would be an immense help - and take a load off of your shoulders!

Here is the question and replies from Ales on G2G in case you missed it. https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/1135803/how-get-location-picker-fixed-global-error-corrected-editbot I’m not sure where to go from here and I’m hoping for some more input from Kiwis.

Hello Amy,

The Appreciation Team Leaders are completing the six-month check in with all team members. Thank you for all your work thanking and appreciating WikiTree members.

I see you aren’t signed up for a task on our team Task List. Please let me know what you’re working on, so we can add it to the list. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Appreciation_Team:_List_of_Tasks. Or let me know if the Appreciation Team is no longer something you can keep up with.

Thank you again on behalf of all the Project Leaders for everything you do.

Hi Janet,

Would I be able to join the team despite being unsure whether I'll be able to sign up for the Thon? As a former Warrior, haha. I haven't put my name down for the Thon yet just because I'm unsure whether I'll be able to participate, as its only a few days before my birthday and my parents (unlike myself) are very enthusiastic about it.

posted by Amelia Utting
Hi Amy

yes you can join us we have a few folk that can only do a day or two, so no worries.

Birthdays just blend in after xx number of years, although having said that my mother in law is really looking forward to her 94th, especially as her wine stock is down!

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
