Vic is the child of Robert Watt and Catherine Viles. [1]


I was born and raised in Seattle, Washington, USA, and I still live in the Northwest.

Genealogy Hobby

I started genealogy 25 years ago. My father's family had been traced back to the Mayflower, and my mother wanted to get on too! Never did get her there, just to 1630.

My brother and sister, their children and in-laws have all been subjects of my genealogy hobby, so it ranges all over the United States and Europe.


I received an MA in German from the University of Washington and completed the coursework for an MA in French from New York University in Paris. After studying Law at the University of Puget Sound, I practiced as an attorney for 27 years before retiring.


Of course, genealogy is my all-the-time, every day, hobby. Sailing my primary summer hobby. Dad was a competitive sailor, and I grew up on boats. I race a Starboat and sail on a bigger boat. When I'm not sailing, I play classical guitar and spend 10-12 hours a day on WikiTree, to which I am addicted.

Interesting and unique names catch my interest. I am currently working on a number of One Name Studies:

Hi Vic:

My what a busy man you are! Thank you for all you do here.

Many of my ancestors were part of the Puritan Great Migration and I would like to help out with this project as I can. I am fairly new to Wikitree, but I understand sources (also a former lawyer) and I'm starting to get the hang of citation style. I recently worked back from Jane Rowell (Rowell-1062) to Thomas Rowell (Rowell-15) and landed in the Great Migration project. I reviewed your preferred citation style and went back to Jane Rowell to begin revising my work to conform to that style. If you have a chance, I would appreciate it if you could take a look at Rowell-1062 and let me know if there is anything you think should be done differently before I revise her father, grandfather, etc.

Hi Vic,

That proposed merge on the Bernie Lombards was my doing as I was bouncing through the DB errors, and they just caught my eye as a possible dupe without having done any research. Do with it what you will ;) As for PPP'ing the Bernard Lombard who is a PGM, I'd say yes, it's a good idea.

Hi Vic,

I notice you are in the PGM project, and we need a Leader for two of the profiles.

Ann (Howard) Kinney

Ann (Putnam) Kinney

You will see on the Comments for Putnam-116, that her LNAB should be Unknown. They need to be merged together in one profile with a surname of Unknown, but since Putnam-116 is PPP, we need a Leader to remove the PPP and merge them and replace the PPP on the final profile.

All of the PMs have now approved this, but we are 'stuck'.

Can you do this? If you can, I will do the clean up after the merge. Thank you very much, (and missing my super powers)

Go ahead with you cleanup and merger of the Stephan Farrs - its obvious, after reading the sourse stuff, that the old family history about Thomas was wrong., although I need to dig it up and see where it came from.

Thanks for your efforts on getting this straight, it give my family tree another link to England, and a reason to go snooping there.

What is your tie to Scotland? Did your family every run into a Lamberton or Lambroughton (or any of the Lamber-variations) ?

The Farrs were long lived, but 105 is probably a typo.

I'll go back to my source stuff and see if I can fix it as well.

Thank you for editing the biography of Mattie Lee Brown. I noticed that she was also listed as a sibling , so I have merged the two, and put in her preferred name.

She was my Great aunt. Gigi Raygor

There were quite a few Greens in Indiana. They must have been tripping over each other, even in the Floyd County area. I go with censuses that show Charles' proper siblings. My maternal grandmother called him Pennsylvania Ditch, probably referring to his mother who was born in PA. Charles' father was William Green without a final "e".
