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 ..............

Hi Terry. I just postponed a merge for St_Lawerance-3. It had just been approved after 30 days. Postponed it becaue it looks as though LNAB should be St Lawrence, not St Lawerance.

Hi Terry and Paula,

I will try not trouble you for a while. Lindley-113 has long been with much controversy recognized as the spouse of PPP Barnes-1145 which is undergoing a major overhaul. This is largely due to parent-child relationships. Paula questioned this union base on no marriage record some time ago. John LaRue has been added to the TL and has analyzed the situation differently. See change tab. Should we add this to our mission? I can add details be space here doe not permit. I do not know Michael and Billie Walsh's position. Paula - Do you remain in the loop. Just asking so I know how to proceed.

Hi Terry,

I have not had the pleasure of working with you. I want to keep you in the loop on activities regarding the PPP Barnes-1145. Do you automatically see them or do I need to take special action? Paula will tell you I have a strong knowledge of good sourcing. I keeping up with wit proper form for tags and refs etc. I will fall down and need guidance. I hope we can source 3 sons using court case beginning in a few weeks. I want to do this in G2G.

Hi Terry I am currently connecting orphaned profiles. I'm working on Ricketts-426 at the moment. His page looks fantastic, you did a wonderful job. I have created his parents and wondered if you could please connect them. His father is Alfred Clarence Ricketts, Ricketts-1438 and his mother is Susan Jones, Jones-70672. I also have his birth and death dates and sources if you want them. Thank you

Hi, I've been using the Category:World War_II_Civilian_Casualties as I've completed the Cardiff Civilians: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Cardiff_Blitz but on the WWII civilians you only have World War II Canadian Casualties

World War II English Civilian Casualties World War II German Casualties World War II Scottish Civilian Casualties World War II United States Civilian Casualties and nothing for Wales?

Before I continue adding to this category I thought I'd better check with you.
