Bio

Raewyn Vincent participated with The Mighty Oaks=2020 during the Source-a-Thon, adding 247 sources to profiles.

I was born at the now non-existent Essex hospital in Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand. When I was younger, my mother would say that I was born next to the bun factory (there was a bread factory in the same street. It was Essex bakery). Essex hospital was a small hospital for maternity and was in Essex Street not far from the central city.

I presently reside in Kansas with my family, having left Christchurch a year before the first major Christchurch earthquake.

History

Every life has its own story. When I'm older, I will share mine. But for now, I look to the past to see what I can find out about some of the traits I have inherited and what contributes in the making of me.

Family Research

My interest in family research came about as a result of a family tree that was given to my father. He looked at it and I looked at it and while I didn't pay a lot of attention at the time, it did pique my interest and I "snagged it". (My father has never complained, so I'm lucky there!) I wanted to know the origins of the Vincent name. Was it French, Italian? Where did my father's family come from? I have yet to find the answers for my specific line, but in the meantime I am looking elsewhere in other parts of the family, because one never knows which family member decides to take interest in their heritage. And that leads into the next part.

Thanks

I have to give credit to my second cousin Richard L. Vincent of New Zealand for all of his research prior to the advent of home Internet access! Family genealogy research was much more difficult, especially when trying to trace family from one side of the globe to the other before personal computers and online databases. It is he whom sparked my interest in genealogy at all and I am grateful for this. His line of research also involved some rumour we somehow had a relationship to the Vincents of Stoke D'Abernon. A family rumour, which may be little more than that, but some rumours have turned out to be true. Unfortunately, the likelihood is if we were somehow related to them, we may have been the result of some form of illegitimacy. Unless I could get my father's DNA compared to someone of that line, or further information comes to light about Henry Vincent I don't think we'll ever be able to confirm or deny it.

Family Names

These are names that are in my family by blood or marriage and I am interested in or actively researching.

  • Burrell
  • Carrick - very active. Jan 2020. 1756 Will transcription in progress.
  • Edwards
  • Hughes
  • Thomson
  • Meredith
  • Rodmell
  • Serjantson Name study
  • Sharpe / Sharp
  • Sinclair
  • Stewart
  • Vincent

Digital After Life

Being that we know not the hour, nor day, if something should happen to me this day, or any day, where I am no longer capable to communicate, or that my breath has ceased, I entrust my account and 'personal' tree to a family member who can prove they are such and intend to continue it. Alternatively, leaders of the England or New Zealand project to take care of what I started. This work was started before I was born and it is by no means complete and it should be available for those who hold an interest in their origins.

Hello

It’s time for a Project check-in!

Scotland Project Leaders check in with you at least once a year to see how you are doing. With the changes happening around the world, we understand that life is hectic right now.

What are you planning to work on for the Scotland Project this year? Are you happy with the team(s) you part of, or would you like to make some changes?

This time round, we’re also looking for feedback on the use of Google Group and Discord. Do you use one or both of these? If you don’t use either of them, what is the best way to ensure you receive Project communications? If you would like to join us on Google Group or Discord, let us know in your response.

Hi Amy,

I think I'm going to drop out. I will still contribute from time to time as my paths cross into Scotland, but as as with Wales, I'm not really doing a heck of a lot really. I have a major focus in England and so far my research has been more fruitful there. Not to mention, I'm putting a considerable amount of time and energy int Middlesex and Greater London - sorely needed unfortunately. Everyone thinks everyone came from London, England.

Thank you though! I wish the project well.

Kind regards,

Raewyn.

Thanks for checking in! We are sorry to see you go, but understand that research interests change over time. Should you wish to join again in the future, know you're always welcome!

Hey Raewyn! Thanks for picking up that duplicated Vincent-4372 James Robert Vincent. Funny, even after you pointed it out, it took me a second to understand what was going on. These families, with the same names repeated across generations, really make my head hurt.

Hi Brad,

Thanks for your comments. I was going through a few of my family names to see if I could find ways to link families etc. I'm at a dead-end in my Vincent line for now, but every now and then I have a look :) Mine also has repeating names and I'm not even sure where mine originates from. For now, it's Staffordshire, but I have my doubts.

Kind regards, Raewyn.

Hi Raewyn,

It's that time of the year again: check-in time! As England Project Leaders, we like to check in with you every six months or so to see how things are progressing. Back in May, we didn't ask for a response due to the rapid emergence of Covid-19 because we understood that people's lives were changing rapidly. While we are still living in a Covid world, we do need to hear back from you this time around

First of all, how are you doing? What are you currently working on? Are you happy with the team(s) you're in, or would you like to change things up?

Secondly, we're looking for some feedback on the Google Group and our Discord server. Do you use either or both of these? If you don't use either, why not? Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve participation and collaboration, either generally or for you personally?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Lizzie, Amy, Joan

England Project Leaders

Hey Lizzie, Amy, Joanie

I'm quarantining until I know my results (but I haven't been an irresponsible twit, so maybe it's something else and I just made my husband who works 7 days a week take time off).

Yep, active in the EP and interested as usual. Still working in Middlesex/Greater London on various database suggestions, trying to keep the Unknowns in East England spiraling out of control (I do periodic checks and see what I can figure out but am not an active member of the Unknown Project - it just makes for a change up in routine and sometimes helps others break down brick walls) and adding sources to unsourced profiles. I update the stats each week in EE and have done so for over a year. I continue to hope it helps those who are active, see where they're needed most and also to give them encouragement for when the figures go down.

I would like to see everyone in the England Project look at their suggestion list at least once every six months and see what suggestions they could personally reduce. I would also like to see that EP members aren't creating profiles without sources. I have come across some that are from well-known members and I don't understand it (It's not the result of a father being created as a result of a sibling profile created). If it's from a Connect-a-thon - going forward, please, I'd request people stop creating profiles without sources (not naming names) - we signed an honor code. I don't know how many people are actually active in Greater London/Middlesex, but it's a massive area to work on and I envy the dedication and team of Bedfordshire and how they maintain their county. I'm sure there are other teams out there that are equally dedicated. The less I have to do, the more I will focus on my own stuff and be able to work on other groups in the England Project (;like Lincolnshire and maybe even Yorkshire, although I'm not actually a team member of the latter, but it is an ancestral home).

I don't use Google Groups that much - Discord sometimes, but not as often as I used to as I find I get distracted and as I already mentioned...there's heaps to do. Discord is wonderful for instant interaction, feedback and help. The people on there are very friendly and I always feel bad when I feel like I'm 'not there' - but I'm like a squirrel with a short attention span and this year, more so than ever.

I have no clue who in my county team is actively working in Middlesex. But I know there's someone/s, because some weeks I don't do much and the stat updates reflect someone or some folk is/are busy beaver/s. I also know that it's often just team effort all over Wikitree and for that, thank you to all our members, inside and outside the England Project.

I hope you all are well.

Raewyn.

Hi Raewyn,

Your England Leaders are completing the six monthly check in with all team members. I wanted to thank you for your work on English Profiles and particularly your work in your various England Teams.

These are unprecedented and difficult times, and we understand as Project Leaders that your situation may have changed somewhat in the last few months. What we are all able to/ wish to contribute on Wikitree has changed. Please let me know if you are happy with your current role and team choice or if you wish to do something additional or different. Thank you again on behalf of all the project leaders for everything you do.

Joan

Hi Joan,

Lovely to hear from you. Sorry I've been noticeably absent in real time, but I have been picking up on Unknowns this week, mainly in Middlesex / Greater London area). So yes, please keep me active in Greater London/ Middlesex and Lincolnshire when I've deciphered some of the unknowns in Middlesex.

Thank YOU for everything you do.

Kind rgards, Raewyn.

Hi Raewyn,

As you will have seen, we have been doing some restructuring in the Wales Project and are now organising ourselves into different teams. Please have a look at the new project pages, and let me know which team(s) you would like to be in.

Please can you also send me your e-mail address? I can then make sure you are introduced to your Team Leaders, are in the Google Group, and receive an invitation to join our Discord server.

Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the Wales Project that you respond to these check-ins.

Many thanks,

Susie, Wales Project Co-Leader

Hi Susie,

I trust this email finds you and your family healthy and well.

I think for the time being you can remove me from the Wales group. Maybe I'll join back at a future date, but for now I've been focusing more on living family and other things and don't want to be more dead weight  :)

Kind regards, Raewyn.

Thanks, Raewen, for your comments on Waudby-65|Hannah Hardbattle]], born Waudby or perhaps Maudby.

As we build trees it is surprising how often we find people with several possible names. This is partly a problem of calligraphy, and partly the lack of standardisation of names as we go further into the past. I do not think Hannah was a Maudby - the name is at best very rare in East Yorkshire: But Waudby is also often spelt Waldby, or Wardby

Hi Raewyn, in your process for creating the weekly stats table for Norfolk, do you have the ability to create a report breaking down the suggestions numbers by time period (i.e. in the same way that the suggestions list is broken out)?
