The Rules of Genealogy Thou Shalt
My name is Terry I live in Brisbane Q.L.D Australia, have four children and nine grandchildren ,this is the main reason I joined Wikitree. To find information so my Children, and grandchildren know were they came from.
I love old photos its a great to see what Grandmother Mary or Grandfather Joe looked like ,it is frustrating if you are left a lot of these lovely vintage photos, (usually in a old tin) with no names on the back to identify who is in the photo. And when you ask a Great Aunt or Grandmother, they usually say I think that is! That could be ! or my very personal favouriteThat looks Like!. Because by the time most of us are interested in researching our families, most of the relatives that could give us first hand knowledge has either died, or is too old to remember. Its a shame we don't show a interest, or ask questions earlier, so ask your questions while you can!
My main interests are in convicts, I have a number of ancestors that were Convicts Joseph Wright, who came to Australia on the First Fleet for stealing 218 lb of lead.He was transported for seven years, (Heaven knows how he carried that). Eleanor Gott who he married, came to Australia on the second fleet, for stealing sundry items(not really sure what sundry items were) .She was transported for three years, and many others these poor convicts didn't have to do much, to be sent to a far away land, never to see their country family or friends again. Captain Thunderbolt aka Frederick Ward was a Australian Bushranger also a descendant, he was known in the Uralla area of New South Wales. I do seem to have a lot of shall we say Misunderstood Ancestors in my family.I am also very interested in our Anzacs, I have many descendants that fought in different wars. Boer War, WW1, WW2, my son served in Timor and Solomon's, he recently returned from Afghanistan, my GG uncle Ernest Smith fought in WW1 and died and is buried in France.
Iwould like to think by the time the Cat gets me, (as my Daughter use to say referring to when I died) that I would of found a wealth of information to leave for my Children or Grandchildren. All my research will be here for them on WikiTree, or most of it at least.One thing I do know about Family Research, is that it is never ending but that's the fun of searching. WikiTree is a great way to find other family members, the community is really friendly, and very helpful with any question you might have. Its a really great way to research your family history, you never know what or who you might find ..............

It's been a little while since last we talked. Since that time, I've offered to help volunteer with the Wright FTDNA project here:
And, here's their older site: http://www.wright-dna.org
I've been spending the last couple months documenting pedigrees that correspond with Y-DNA kits here:
It's my hope that we can push these pedigrees into our WikiTree Wright surname project this year.
One question I had for you ... have you done any DNA testing of any kind?
Also, another thing to consider -- joining our new Wright Genealogy Facebook group here:
