Once upon a time I was a research chemist, then I ended up as a technology manager for a major chemicals company.

Now I'm retired, I work just about full time on genealogy research, mostly on other people's trees because of the one-name studies.

WikiTree Advanced Directive

It may seem morbid, but in the event of my untimely demise I want to be sure that none of my hard work on WikiTree ends up being deleted. While I fully intend on being around to manage all my profiles for a very long time, in the event of my incapacitation or death I hereby give permission for all of my private profiles to be transferred to Fritha Watson, whether or not she is currently on their Trusted Lists.

Sources

  1. Indebted to Sharon Wilson for this idea

Only the Trusted List can access the following:
  • Derrick's formal name
  • full middle name (J.)
  • e-mail address
  • exact birthdate

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Derrick or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
  • Derrick Watson: Y-Chromosome Test 43 markers, haplogroup E-V13-BY5505
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • Derrick Watson: Mitochondrial DNA Test Full Sequence, haplogroup J2a1a1a3
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Derrick:

Only too pleased to help if I can. As you can see from the above, the subroutine that protects people's privacy has stripped your direct e-mail from your post.

If you send me a private message (link next to my name near the top of this page where it says "Profile Manager") that will put us in direct contact and we can take it from there.

Hi Derrick

Thank you for joining the Mighty Oaks for the Connect-a-Thon. The 65 members who joined our teams were awesome. Our two teams added 12,905 profiles over the weekend. The Branches Team came second and the Roots Team came forth in the overall scores. Both teams were also in the top ten in the normalised scores. I hope you enjoyed it and will be joining us in April when we do it all over again.

Joan, Maddy, Janet & Fran.

Hi Derrik,

I have a Lilian Bradshaw in my tree and thought yours was mine - alas not to be. But I gathered this as part of working things out. Hopefully will help you discover/decide which is yours. Love to know how you go!

Thanks for this Susie, what an excellent piece of work you've done. I've taken some of the pieces from the space page and added it to their profiles and also added a link to your page. Given the locations, the Lilian from Preston is marginally more likely, but not really enough difference to make it certain.

Re: Richard Halfyard. Ina comment you have the statmen that land of Nicholas Churchill had lain idle for many years in 1723? Should this be 1823?

Robert

Could you give me the wikitree ID please. Only too pleased to have a look but it's not a name that is ringing any bells.

posted by Derrick Watson
I've found which Richard you meant by checking your contributions page.

The comment including the 1723 date was not added by me but by Susan Squires-2652 on 18 Dec.

I agree with you that it is most likely a typo, but I'd check with her.

My only involvement in this profile was in correcting a minor citation error.

I think if you actually look at her profile you'll find she is still married to Robert Parker (profile manger=you), just not to the second Robert Parker who died in 1734, before she was born. The parish register for Colkirk with Oxwick states that the Robert who was buried there 17 May 1734 was the son of Nicholas and Lydia - exactly as stated on the profile of Parker-4480, on which profile you yourself added a note stating that he was not the one who married Ann Meck.

And yes, I do do research before I make changes.

If you check the changes I made, they were to move the children from the impossible Robert Parker (infant death) to the possible one, and to disconnect the impossible one from the obviously impossible marriage.

I don't think that gedcoms can prove you wrong. Some extra sourcing might do so, but a gedcom import is just someone elses' opinion unless properly sourced.

I don't assert that Parker-47247 is the "correct" father. The word I used above was "possible", as opposed to to the impossibility of Parker-44880 (the infant death) being father of these children which was YOUR assertion.

The lack of a child named Nicholas is only possibly relevant if I were asserting that Parker-4480 was the father of these children - he's the one from whom I moved them.

I cannot remove your name from these profiles, that is not in my gift, only you can do that.

Dear Derrick, Thanks for updating the profile of Robert Pallant, my great-grandfather, I've had autosomal and mtchondrial DNA tests, so if you are also related to Robert we should have a DNA match. I don't see a match to me on your profile; not sure how it works. My father was George Evelyn Pallant Sidaway, He added "Evelyn" himself after an uncle who died quite young, I think - George Evelyn Pallant. My father's mother's maiden name was Sarah Edith Pallant. Her married name was Sidaway, Sarah's father was Robert Pallant who moved to Stockton and became a blacksmith. My father and his three siblings all had Pallant in their names and it was also passed on to me and my siblings. I wonder if you know about the generations before Robert Pallant. I think possibly his father was from Aldborough and was a seafarer (from Family Search) but I'm not sure if this was my ancestor or not. Anyway, maybe we are distant cousins!

Best wishes, Judith Christine Pallant Brooksbank (born Sidaway)

Judith,

Not related I'm sorry to say. The update was purely in response to a minor error that the system had picked up.

Hi Derrick, I received your email about the pending merge for Benjamin Yates and agree with you. The person who created the new Benjamin Yates has also created a new mother Susannah Gibbs (with differently spelled surname) and also a new Jane (Carrickson) Yates. So there are at least 3 duplicates created by Arthur Bushell and could be more.

Could you please help me sort through them? I haven't got a lot of experience with merges in WikiTree and I guess I am feeling inexperienced with the links between profiles. Some are correct, some are linked to duplicates. Also, does Arthur need to be contacted about making duplicates? Thanks, Anita Beavan
