I live in Wombwell, Yorkshire. I am married with grown up daughter and two sons. I also have two grandchildren. I am a retired nurse and enjoying retirement which gives lots of time to continue with the family history research that I started shortly after my fathers death in 1993. At that time I was concerned that information that I knew about our family would be lost for future generations. Retirement gives plenty of time to work on WikiTree, where I hope my research will be preserved for future generations.


The names in my family that I am interested in include Williams, James, Shephard, Orwin, Count, Gyte, and Nuttall. In my husbands family they include Whitaker, Keeling, Towning, Corbett, Sokell, Palmer, Winder, Hargate Truelove and Birks.

I have only a few people on my tree that do not live in England. Among the places that interest me are Wombwell and Darfield in South Yorkshire, Youlgreave and Chelmorton in Derbyshire and Tipton and West Bromwich in Staffordshire. The counties where I have interest include Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Durham, Staffordshire and Suffolk.

Digital Afterlife

In the event of my passing into the next phase of lifes' journey, or that I have become unable through physical or mental illness, to continue my labour of love on my branches, I place the profiles I manage into the caring hands of the Wikitree Admin and ask that any English profiles, including my own, first be offered to the Leadership and Members of my dearly beloved England Project. If any member(s) of my family have the desire to continue what I have started, I ask that they be allowed to manage those profiles and have the guidance to continue in the proper manner. Any locked profiles that I manage I believe to contain only information that can be found on the internet, so they may be dealt with as privacy would allow. There is also a full biography hidden on my profile that can be made public at an appropriate time.

posted by Philip Morrice
Hi Philip,

You cannot delete profiles, you have to merge them. I have just proposed a merge of Nancy and Agnes. I hope that I have chosen the right profiles and that it helps. If I have selected the wrong profiles just reject the merge. If I am right you can just complete the merge. If I can be of further help let me know. Regards Joan

Hi Dorothy,

Sorry, I did not mean to join the Integrators Challenge. I ticked the wrong box by mistake whilst I was sourcing some profiles yesterday. Having done that, the tracker does not allow you cancel something to correct a mistake. Thank you for helping with the Integrators Challenge and I am sorry if I caused you extra work. Regards Joan

Hi Joan

Happy New Year 

We appreciate your being part of the England Data Doctor Team and all the work you have done during 2019.

With the New Year starting I am writing to ask if you wish to remain on the England DD Team for 2020. If you could let me know as I am updating the page DD Page]

If you wish too, you can adopt a suggestion or two and a county to work on this year.

Hi Janet,

Happy new year. I would like to remain in int DD team please. I must admit that I am not doing as much on the DD front as I was. Other things on wikitree are taking up my time, especially the new demands that the Leadership role is imposing, but I will still do work on the errors when I have time. I have a personal target, that I will source at least 10 Yorkshire profiles and correct at least 10 Yorkshire suggestions each week, and do more when I can. Unfortunately I do not have time to adopt a suggestion. Regards Joan

  

Hi Joan, 

Wondered as the Windsor Warriors are not participating if you would like to join the Sandringham Strollers for the Scan-A-Thon on the January 10, at 8 AM (ET) and runs until Monday, January 13, 2020

If you would like to join us please register Here 

Look forward to working with you during this fun event.

Congratulations Joan on leadership badge.

Welcome to the Worldwide Disaster project. I will be sending you a list of items I have been trying to do alone after I type it sufficiently on a private message which has more space. Then we can all get together.

Dear Joan, Some months back I started to input collected data on the Jephson family, data on about 1,600 individuals going back to the 1500's. I was approached by Carol Keeling who helped enormously with linking data for the Notts Jephsons and who put me in touch with Stephen Heathcote who similarly did sterling work on the Derbyshire Jephsons. I wondered if there might be anyone in the Yorkshire team whom I might be able to work with on the links with the Yorkshire Jephsons? I can prepare a specific .docx file on them if that would be of help? best regards. Chris Jephson

Welcome to what I know you'll find to be some of the most fun-hard work you'll have at WikiTree!

Thank you Joan for adding the 1939 Register for Annie Keeling. The date 1880 is for Florence Ellen Binder (nee Walls) (John Binder's first wife) but in pencil above is written 1888, which is Annie's birth year.
