Vic's To-Do List



Vic Watt is a descendant of Mayflower Passenger William Brewster

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 more than 30 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. The wives I refered to was Mary Ellen Smith 174423 and Rosine Weil 671.

Also, how many generations can I put in? I have a lot of questions about putting in the stockwell side. I found several have been added before by someone else and a lot of the info doesnt match.

Hi Vic. I have but another question on the Hildreth's. Mary Jane Manville has been entered by another person and I have some information that needs to go on it. Do I go ahead and enter the information ? Did you go ahead and Merge Lafayette 1399 and 299?

Thanks for the help on the Stewart/Elliot file. It does appear my client has passed on to me some erroneous information from another unreliable source. The information that you supplied gets us back on track.

thank you vic. this has erased 4 ties so hope to get it finished. how do i connect the other hildreth to mye line without having to merge? can i use a ged file for my tree or do I just enter everything

I had seen the first one you mentioned, where there was Mary Carrier as a servant. Had not seen the second one. Yikes, and the family seems to have said she died young!!! At least that's the info I had when I started. :-D

Hmm...still married in 1860 but remarried to someone else by 1864. No sign of the other guy, eh?

On 28 Oct 2018 at 03:02 GMT PE Rosner wrote:

Wow, that doesn't sound good! On my end, it shows Mary died at the age of 29, in 1851. Then Horatio remarried an Anne M. Thompson (Balch) and had 5 more kids with her. But maybe Mary ran off in 1851 instead of dying?
