Connections are evenly distributed either side of the 1775 war - most adapted, a few were exiled
1914 - 1918 A great tragedy - the first generation of New Zealand & Australian born men taken from the land to fight a war on the other side of the world, just as their parents were reaching retirement and looking forward to passing on their hard won farms.
Simply more entertaining than crosswords or jigsaw puzzles
Deep Anglo Irish roots have made me what I am
New Zealand is a beautiful place made great by people who punch well above their weight
I love untangling parallel uploads & locating pre-1500 sources
Setting a profile in its own unique historic context brings that person alive
Each profiled individual watches over my shoulder to see how much I know about them - and whether I'm getting it right.
Have an interest in connecting families in the American colonies, West & East Indies & Great Britain
Following US history is armchair travelling

Hello again Valerie,

I had to laugh at your NZ tag line - New Zealand is a beautiful place made great by people who punch well above their weight. :) Anyway thanks again for helping me with James Howie, and of course for your stunning Whangamomona page! I thought I recognised your name, I've just uploaded a picture to Hubert Unwin's profile, and realised you originally created the profile... so I think of certain members of my Family, and I think of Whangamomona ... and I think of the Illustrious Elsie Hood, who was married to my Great Uncle Hubert Howie (Hubert Unwin's namesake). Do you know of Elsie Hood/ Elsie Howie buried at Taumarunui by chance? Or is it just a coincidence :o) Elsie Hood lived at Whangamomona around 1916.

Hi Valerie!

Welcome, and thanks for joining the Magna Carta project!

Give me or David a holler if you have any questions, or you can post in G2G (Magna_Carta) or to the Google Group (that group is tied to WikiTree-36, the project account).

Project affiliates are encouraged to join the Google Group - from that page, send a request to join with your WikiTree ID (so we know who it is).

Cheers, Liz

Thanks for your edits to Myler Fitz Henry but can you please make sure that direct quotes from publications or websites have quotation marks around them? Not only is this to avoid basic plagiarism or copyright concerns but also it is very difficult for later editors to know where exactly to put the quote marks without doing a lot of work. Secondly, because detailed descriptions of appearances are extremely rare in this period, and normally come from modern books of a less serious nature, this is especially important to source well, in order to avoid someone assuming the worst and deleting it.

Hi! The Name Field Guidelines page is a collection of existing project pages/discussions. Has Irish Roots Project published name field guidelines? If so, let me know the URL. I could also post a link to "in progress" discussion in G2G. Let me know. Cheers, Liz
