Hello, My name is Gloria Potter(GSSD-B7N) wife of Michael Roy Potter(G76R-227) born in Linthwaite, Huddersfield, Yorkshire, 18 Oct 1946, his Father was Frank Potter (G76R-12K) born Yorkshire, 10 June 1920. Died in Qld, Australia 1 Dec 1998. He was the 2nd Husband of Dorothy May Potter formerly Macdonald, born Hart.(G76R-1P4) Her Father was William Theodore Hart(G7X1-Q49) who died in 1960. We have searched high & low and can find no other information about him except that we think he was a Sargent in the Police Force, in or near London. We have absolutely no information on his wife. Can you help please?
Hi the connection finder says iam 37 degrees from you what dose that actually mean ? I carnt seam to understand certain things about dna
posted by Kayleigh Walker
Hi Kayleigh, The connection finder is not really about DNA. On WikiTree we aim to connect everyone to just 1 tree, rather than loads of individual trees, that mesh here and there. If you click on the connection link, it will show you the route through individual families, either through birth or marriage or siblings, how we are connected. It does not mean we are actually related, just that we are connected. It can be quite interesting to follow the route. Our connection goes all the way to Utah in America, and back again to the UK.

I hope this helps Dave

Hi Dave

Thank you for joining the Mighty Oaks for the Clean-A-Thon and congratulations on your work during the CAT what an amazing result for the Mighty Oaks we added 32,841 . Altogether the teams fixed a grand total of 233,558 profiles suggestions. We hope you had fun while cleaning the tree.

See you later in the year for the Connect-A-Thon

Co-Leaders for the Mighty Oaks

Hi Dave,

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

England Project Leaders

Thanks for completing the merge I proposed. I think I may be able to add more to his profile as he married and was in an Asylum.

Hi Dave,

Your England Leaders are completing the six monthly check in with all team members. I wanted to thank you for your work on English Profiles and particularly your work in the Yorkshire Team.

These are unprecedented and difficult times, and we understand as Project Leaders that your situation may have changed somewhat in the last few months. What we are all able to/ wish to contribute on Wikitree has changed. Please let me know if you are happy with your current role and team choice or if you wish to do something additional or different. Thank you again on behalf of all the project leaders for everything you do.


Hi there, Dave!

Thanks so very much for your participation in the spring Clean-a-thon! Every suggestion you cleared (over 600!) made our Tree that much better. The WikiTree community appreciates YOU!

Hi Dave

I am a Welburn descendant of Joseph Welburn 1834/1916 via I hate to say this his Mistress Sarah Peacock Sollitt. Sarah was born 1847 in Bugthorpe and died 1916 Guisborough. Sarah married a William Sollitt and they also lived at Fridaythorpe though I think Sarah may have met Joseph much younger, one of her aunts or uncles married a Welburn and they may have met at family dos. So Sarah and William had 7 children William, Elizabeth Hannah Maria, Margaret and Mary Ann , William the husband died in 1875 so Sarah ended up having children with Joseph, Harriet 1878 and Louisa 1880. Though I think Sarah ran off and ended up in the work house, Joseph went after her and took her out and helped Sarah start a business in taking people's washing in. The other three children were Ernest 1883, Ada 1887, and Herbert 1890. DNA supports this with my father on My heritage and ancestry, I was told by a family member in Yorkshire but at that time we had no proof until a few days ago. So you have a new branch, I'm not too sure if you want to know the other part because of the fact we're from an affair. Look forward to hearing from you. My father is on ancestry Ivanstebbings92

Hi Dave,

I have more Welburns to enter. My Stepfather is Keith G Welburn a descendant of Thomas Welburn who had 3 sons that married 3 Darlison daughters. They have a Welburn/Darlison reunion every year and my mother has a notebook where they kept track of all the births and deaths that had taken place in the previous years. They also had a handwritten story about the journey that Thomas had made to get to Michigan after he came to America. He had apparently worked on the Erie Canal as it was being dug. I'll have to ask about it again. Keith turned 90 this year and is always interested in what I find about the Welburn family
