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.

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 (beta) of DNA with Derrick:

Hi Derrick,

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

Hi Derrick,

Thank you for editing George Worthe (abt.1530-1561) and removing numerals from name - reserved for Royalty. That is something I didn't know, so was good to learn about that. I am interested in the Clothier families of Wiltshire and Somerset so if you notice any other profiles I put up that you can improve on and give me advice please do. Much appreciated.

Thank you for your help Derrick!

Thank you for all of the work on the Maltby profiles. I went through all of Harry's GEDCOM during a two year span and added all of the sources I could find at that time. I was affronted to have him thrown off and we were all abandoned. I have a copy of the 1916 book my grandfather bought when he went to the reunion. My grandfather, his sister, and Uncle Kenneth attended. If I can help you by trying to look up anything let me know. The tripod is a list she accumulated in preparation of printing another book. She died before doing it.

Hi Derrick,

On behalf of the England Leaders, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your contributions towards the project in the past six months as a Team Member for Nottinghamshire. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.

Are you happy to stay in your current team and the project as a whole? Are there any other teams you'd like to join? What are we doing well, and what would you like to see us doing differently moving forwards?

Please respond to this message via e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,

Susie, England Project Leader :-)
