Biography

Vic Watt is a descendant of Mayflower Passenger William Brewster.

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

Location

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.

Education

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.

Hobbies

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,

The Global Cemeteries Project is currently undergoing our member check-in and wanted to verify that you are still active and interested in being a member of the project. Are you currently assigned to or working with one of our Cemetery Teams? If not, is there a particular Team or area you are interested in participating with? I would be delighted to help you get setup in one or more of our collaborative teams!

We use Google Groups for internal project collaboration, so if you are not yet setup for access feel free to submit a join request and we will get that approved as quick as possible. We also ask that members check their followed tags to make sure you are following the correct project tag (CEMETERIES) so you don't miss any discussions in G2G.

Last, but not least, we would like to thank you for all of your contributions to WikiTree and let you know that any ideas or suggestions for improvement you may have for the Global Cemeteries Project would greatly appreciated!

I look forward to hearing form you soon!

Steve, What with family health issues and other things going on right now, I am unable to do much on any project. I think you should remove me from the project for now, and, when things ease I, I will rejoin. Vic

Amy, Thanks for making contact. There is too much on my plate now for me to be active, so I think it best if I don't continue with the project. Thanks, Vic

Hi again Vic. Thank you for the proposal to merge Cottam-159 and Cottam-203. The subject was my mother's cousin and I remember him well. I have tried to get this fixed with no success.I really appreciate your help.

Madeleine Davidson

Thank you so much for this. I have tried unsuccessfully to get the manager of Cottam-205 to merge with Cottam-132. I manage Cottam-132 who was my great-grandfather. Other members of the family also have not been merged. I have tried to communicate with this person but he does not respond. So grateful for your assistance.
