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

I was wondering if you are opposed to some additional information on Cole Younger and his involvement in the battle of Lone Jack. His actions there played a significant role in his parole many years later after his last failed bank robbery.-kevin

Hi, back in 2015 you locked Stewart-13887. That profile is missing both parents, a spouse, and two children, and is not managed by a project and has no project template. Can you please unlock this profile as it does not meet current criteria for project protection and the profile manager cannot unlock it himself, so that this profile can be connected and completed?

Thank you.

Hi Terry,

We're sad to inform you that the Black Sheep Project is being dissolved. All BSP's subprojects will be moved in pieces under the Notables Project as categories and perhaps as Teams, depending on interest. Witch Trials will become a subproject of Notables.

Your BSP project member badge will soon be removed. If you'd like to join the Notables project, please let one of us know and we'll get you a Notables badge.

Please email either of us if you have any questions and if you'd like to join the Notables project.

Thanks, Susan McNamee & Traci Thiessen ~Co-leaders, Black Sheep Project

Hello Terry

The Australia Project leadership team are carrying out a check-in to see how you are going in the project and especially to thank you for all your work on Australian profiles on WikiTree. We really value your participation.

Please could you get back to me by private message to let me know if you are happy with your current role and team involvement within the project or if you would like to do something additional or different. Currently we have you down as a Team Leader for the Explorers and Bushrangers teams. If you would like a change, you can check on the Australia Project page to see what other options there are.

It would also be great to hear any feedback and any suggestions that you have to improve the project. On a practical note, if you are a member of the google group, are you receiving messages ok?

I look forward to hearing from you.

I found this person in my Links I have 2 to 3 ways I connect to him so far. Per findagrave he was World war 2 veteran that all I know. I like to see if the world war 2 project can find out more. Or help with his profile I put basic tag on his profile since I don’t know much.




We haven’t heard back from you concerning the Scottish Clans Transition. If you are still interested and we haven’t received a response from you by 27 March 2020, you will be welcome to rejoin by answering the current g2g thread for joining the Scotland Project.

Hi Terry,

It has been a few weeks since we contacted you about your participation in the Disasters Project and as we haven't heard from you, we are following up to make sure you wish to remain a member.

We understand that interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to the branches they are currently building. If this is the case for you, please let us know.

If we do not hear back from you within the week, we will assume you have moved on to other things for the moment and remove you from the project. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.

Regards Joan


My name is Amy and I’m a co-Leader of the Scotland Project. As you may have heard, we have merged the Scottish Clans project into the Scotland Project. I am contacting you today to find out if you are interested in continuing with us under this new format. I see you have been an active member and are a Mentor for several Clans. With the new structure, we are moving to a Team Leader rather than a mentor. If you choose to remain with us under the new structure, could let me know which Clans you wish to continue with, please?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely, Amy Gilpin, Scotland Project Co-Leader

Hi Terry.

On behalf of the Disasters Project Leaders we are carrying out a check-in to see how all the members are doing and taking the opportunity to thank you for all your hard work in the past.

We have recently made a lot of changes. We are changing the focus of the project to include more about people involved in disasters and the effect it had on them and their families. We have divided the project into teams. Please have a look https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Disasters

Please let me know, by comment on my profile or a private message, whether you are still active in the project, and which team(s) you would like to work with. What are you enjoying most about being in the project? What would you like to see improved or changed?

We're looking forward to hearing back from you,

Joan and Lizzie

Wishing you a Happy New Year for 2020

Hey hun,

I am wondering if you can remove my scottish project badges for now. I am still fighting personal life stuff and just am not getting to things like I really should. I plan to get back to it later but think it best to be off of it for now.

Thanks, Lisa

Hi Terry,

I’m checking in with all Titanic Project Members to introduce myself and see how you are and what you are working on. I’m Lizzie and I’m honoured to be looking after the project in the role of coordinator. Please let me know what you are working on and if you need anything from me.

Looking forward to moving the project forward with you


Hi Terry

I see that a few years ago you suggested that a possible topic for the Australia Project was Australian Artists. Assuming that you might have some interest in that area, could I ask your assistance in trying to connect one of them that I have been working-on a bit over the past year?

Please let me know if you are happy to have a look at it.

Hi Terry,

On behalf of the Australia Project leadership team, we're carrying out a Project Members Check-in to see if you are still interested in being involved as an active member of the project. We have you listed as Team Leader for a couple of topic teams, so just a checkin to confirm you are still active in those teams.

A list of teams is on the Australia Project page. Please respond by private message.

We really appreciate your enthusiasm in working on Australian profiles on WikiTree, and thank you for all the work you have been doing. We look forward to hearing back from you and that you will decide to be part of the project as we move forward with the new teams for the project.

Kind Regards

Hi Terry, since you're a leader of the WWII project, I just wanted to point out an apparent error in the Sticker section of the WWII project page. The description shows the parameter Branch=, but it should be lower case branch=. When I tried to use it as shown it didn't work correctly. Thanks!
Hi Terry,

I haven’t heard back from you about the United Kingdom Project breaking up into the individual country-level projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. I hope all is well with you. I assume you don’t wish to join any of them at present, and will go ahead and remove the United Kingdom badge. If you wish to join England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland in the future, you would be most welcome to do so via the respective G2G sign-up post.

Many thanks for all your contributions,

Hi Terry,

I am doing a six-month check-in with members to see if you were active in the last six months in Disasters Project. Please let me know, by comment on my profile or a private message, whether you are still active in the project.

How have you contributed to the Worldwide Disasters main project? (a contribution may be a space page for a disaster, disaster source, an edit for the space page, or profiles of people in disasters). (I know the answer, as your name is all over the pages.)

Have you any thoughts for other disaster space pages?

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
