Probably boring for 99% of the people out there, so....:)

I've been chasing family tree stuff for 4 or 5 years now, ever since an extremely boring job left me with a tonne of time online and nothing to do. I've gone backwards 4 - 8 generations in various trees, but I actually got more interested in joining families up across Victoria - finding the spots where large families joined up, sometimes multiple times.

Anyway, being on holidays, i went to the state library during the week and finally managed to find info on what happened to a great*3grandmother... that made me happy, because it looked like she'd disappeared to me. Pesky. So, now in celebration, I bore you all ;) and put the (genetic(*)) ancestor tree that I have up here.

(*) genetic as opposed to actually raised-by family style of thing. Thus some of the random surname switches.

George Frederick Augustus Archibald Stanley Barber

Thats quite a name.
9th-Feb-2006 04:11 am (UTC)
Yeah, not sure what was going on... maybe parents had a lot of names to unload on him. I don't know if he had any siblings...
9th-Feb-2006 04:27 am (UTC)
If my surname started with a "D" I'd be tempted to name my child such that their initials spelled "GETF*CKED"
9th-Feb-2006 04:29 am (UTC)
You're easily amused :)
9th-Feb-2006 05:15 am (UTC)
Would give me at least 18 years of laughs.
9th-Feb-2006 11:56 am (UTC)
Well, you could name your kid with the initials F*CKUP instead...
9th-Feb-2006 10:43 pm (UTC)
Thats a little cruel on the kid.

BTW - Found the bag containing your shorts and tupperware box. Will pass to paradigmshifty via arienmir.
9th-Feb-2006 11:51 pm (UTC)
Thank you. I knew they would turn up eventually.
9th-Feb-2006 11:54 pm (UTC)
.... nope, no filthy minds here.
10th-Feb-2006 12:15 am (UTC)
Of course not...

Look, over there! It's a distraction!

Define inbreeding? In various locations there are married couples who are cousins... I found that I'm (indirectly) related to Kylie, and even more remotely to Liz :) (3 different ways)

To my casual eye, I think there was a lot of people moving out from, say, Scotland from the same area at about the same time, and settling in approximately the same area in Victoria. In the process, they lose contact with family details. Their children, growing up in Australia, meet the nice single young people from the same town, unaware of the family connection at the time....

No, no children here. Unless they're hiding under the dog.

Mmm. No, thanks.
9th-Feb-2006 10:53 pm (UTC)
Woot. Cool. :)

This reminds me that I want to get around to doing one of these myself some day. Someone's already done my Mum's side I think, but I have no idea about my Dad's side of the family.
9th-Feb-2006 11:44 pm (UTC)
Isn't he from Canadia? Local resources are a bit sparse, but the interweb has an enormous amount of stuff from the US....
10th-Feb-2006 01:07 am (UTC)
*G* From America. I come from three sources. ;) I'm assuming that his reasonably common surname could be a bit of a bugger to start with? (although at least it's got one 't' instead of 2, which is less common)
10th-Feb-2006 01:12 am (UTC)
The other being "barbeque".

Um, its not 'Smith', but Mathews has probably changed spellings 400 times. It could be problematic without some other info. Might be interesting though. I'm not sure what the semi-historical sources are like for the US - I've only worried about Australia and some in the UK.
10th-Feb-2006 01:19 am (UTC)
*Groan* *WHAP* (It must say something for the kind of week I've had that it took me a few moments to get that :P )

It'll be interesting to see how difficult or easy it is. For all I know, my Dad's got access to a family tree already...
10th-Feb-2006 02:31 am (UTC)
:)

Well, if you know any ancestors from around the turn of the century, you can check online in a couple of sites...

I have a James McMaster ancestor, but it's not this one. Have seen Hugh McMaster somewhere, so keep searching, something has to turn up for you.
What I have found is 3 different James McMaster's who came to this continent in the early part of the 18th century. One into New York, mine into PA, and another into South Carolina.
Happy Hunting,
Kay

Anonymous
Some of these are my ancestors.

My grandmother: Martha Isabella Eileen Shaw (b.1899-12-20, d.1992-12-02)
I think her second name was Isobel rather than Isabella.

My grandfather: Frederick John Healey (b.1893-05-22, d.1978-02-20)
Was married twice. His first wife was Ethel Jensen who passed away.

There were two children from the first marriage and six from the second marriage.

hi :) you & my mum must be cousins. Happy to chat further :) Feel free to comment more or email me at aeduna@gmail.com

Eileen's birth certificate says "Isabella", and I think she was named after her grandmother, who is listed the same... she was 'gran' to me :)

You match both my mother and I on our DNA thru gedmatch..We are in the US..not seeing any familiar surnames..although Ward seems to show up on some of my matches..were they from Scotland?
13th-Sep-2013 11:22 pm (UTC) - Re: DNA Match
Please feel free to email me at aeduna@gmail.com - I'd love to compare notes

Yes, the Ward folks came from around Lockerbie.

Not sure where you got your info from on this chap - I dont think he is the son of Thomas Matthew & Christian Tod. They did have a son called John,. but he was born on 26 Oct 1822 in Markinch in Scotland and nowhere on any of the documents that I have do they state that his second name was Engels or Inglis or any derivative of such a name. Do you have any original documents showing that his parents are who you say they are? If so could you scan and email them to me please?
Regards,
Nicky

Hi Nicky, I don't have any way to contact you, but please feel free to email me at aeduna@gmail.com and I'll be happy to see how we go - the short version is that - as far as I can recall - it was information given to me about 10 years ago b another researcher when I was starting off. If it turns out to not be true, I'd love to amend my records accordingly.
