Biography

England Orphan Trailblazer
Steven Whitfield is an England Orphan Trailblazer
England Orphan Team
Steven Whitfield has completed the England Project's Post 1700 Orphan Trail I.
England Orphan Team
Steven Whitfield has completed the England Project's Pre-1700 Orphan Trail II.
Steven Whitfield participated with The Mighty Oaks during the 2022 Connect-a-Thon, and added 1608 connections.

I was born in Warrington, Cheshire, went to school in Manchester, studied law in Birmingham and Chester and went on to qualify as a solicitor in Warrington.

After a few months in practice, I decided that another 40 years of conveyancing, divorces and litigation weren't what I wanted out of life and I left my job to work for Eurocamp, a tour operator, on a campsite in France. I ended up working for Eurocamp in various roles for the next 30 years until we were taken over; and I retired.

One of the hobbies I took up on finishing work was researching our family history, which I have found fascinating. Wikitree's Orphan Trail introduced me to a range of resources that I never knew existed and disciplines that will help me to record my findings for cousins and future generations. Thanks to Wikitree's collaborative approach, I am able to carry on developing my knowledge and pass on some of my experience to others.

Thanks for the edit info on my grandmother Eva Wood (Tant). I am especially interested in tracing her father Henry Sewell Wood. He was apparently a botanist working in India and died of malaria and was buried at sea on his way back to England, but so far there appears to be no trace of him. All the family members that might have had some info are now all deceased.. I have been a member of this group for a few years now but still find it confusing. I will check out the links you included to try to follow up further. I am also trying to to trace the parents of Edward Kenny and Margaret Dwyer, my father's parents who lived in Golborne. She was either born or emigrated from Ireland in the 1870s, to Newfoundland, but apart from finding their marriage certificate in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1902, I can find no link to her. Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Hello Stephen,

You have updated the file on my Great Grandfather John George William Westfallen. Is he in your family tree? Kind regards, Lorraine

Hi Lorraine

Thanks for your message.

I have no personal connection to the Westfallen family. I am just making connections of other profiles to the main tree.

As part of this, I will be adding John's parents later today.

Regards Steve

I actually have the whole family tree going back to Johann Jurgen Westfallen born c1776 (Germany?) married Anastatia died 1/11/1821 Whitechapel. I also have his will. I just haven’t got around to adding the enormous amount t of members yet.

A cousin researched this many years ago. All the best, Lorraine

Sounds interesting.

I have just added John's parents. Hopefully the profiles tally with your information. Good luck with uploading your tree. With best wishes Steve

Hi Steve,

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 Steven,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working with members of the projects which coordinate them is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.

Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus. Review the project pages for special guidelines and to learn how to collaborate with the project members.

Let me know if you have trouble finding projects which fit your focus. Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.

Remember to cite reliable sources in pre-1700 profiles you manage, or edit. (See:https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Pre-1700_Profiles#Cite_reliable_sources).

Thank you for signing the Honor Code, Steven.

I see that you have had your DNA tested, congratulations! Getting Started with DNA will tell you more about how DNA kits are used on WikiTree.

DNA at WikiTree provides a visual way for you to find others who have tested and have the potential of having common ancestors. To get the best results, you need to continue adding sourced profiles for your ancestors until you can connect to existing profiles in WikiTree. If you have exhausted what you know on one line, try a different one. 24 hours after you connect to an existing profile, your test will have populated on the profiles of your ancestors and their descendants, where others with potential matches may also appear.

Let me know if you have any questions and have fun!

Wendy ~ WikiTree Greeter

Welcome Steven

We are so happy to have you here in the WikiTree community! I hope that you find many cousins on the site, and grow to like it as much as I do.
