It's a crying shame and disgrace!
by: CLAUDETTE

It's a shame that a simple thing like trying to know who your family is has turned into a dramatic performance.
Most normal families are proud of their heritage but this hot mess I do not understand. But none the less, for what ever reason my family has decided to remain insane, paranoid, thieving, and crooked. I still love you dearly.
But I thank God that he has not disowned me, For the record no matter what you want to hide and steal. you are my blood as retarded as you may be and I love you dearly. Be blessed with common sense.

A CRYING SHAME
by: CLAUDETTE

It is a disgrace that this family was not civil enough to come together for a simple thing like family history. Which normal families always engage in without fear of being recognized as a family member. For what ever insane reason.
But none the same we are family! And as wacky thieving and paranoid as some of you may be. I love you dearly.
And no matter how retarded folks decide to act, they cannot erase a blood line that has such a strong and confusing almost hilarious legacy. Lol!

Greetings Family! Merry Christmas!

To to last (anonymous) poster--

I have not had the time recently to investigate the sources you have provided. I have been busy with our daughter's school activities and working. These are busy busy days!

I will let you know what I find, when I find it, if you'd like to give me your email address. I won't post that info here cause it tends to tick some people off. You may send your name and contact info to my email address listed in a previous posting below. Be sure to refer to your posted comment so I know which 'anonymous' you are.

Thanks,

Kim

To 'Anonymous'

I have checked out all the links you've supplied. Some further investigation will have to be done once I have the time.
As for the book, no, I have not seen it before. I might consider buying it. The page count seems small and I wonder how many of those pages might be photos or illustrations to 'bulk up' the content. Hopefully, its not just a sham to make money.

Thanks for share the information you have found.

every thing can not be free
by: Anonymous

there is no big secret, but you just have to pay a professional organisation, and maybe not all your family wants there business to be all out in the public. as the research you have done is it easily accessible. face it in life you can not always get the answers you want. and many of the people you are asking may never had known, the great interest in family tree, as only be possible due to the internet, cheapness get cheapness. what have you paid for to find this information

Fed Up
by: Kim

Well, I am coming to the conclusion that there must be some BIG FAMILY SECRET out there and some people in the know are afraid of it getting out.

The last entry made a somewhat valid point. But, and this is a BIG BUT, I made my name and contact information available and has anyone bothered to contact me? No. Especially the two biggest whiners, they haven't bothered to email or pick up the phone. Well let me tell you. I am a VERY curious person and I know how to use the internet. And I WILL PAY the few dollars to find information at those websites, if no one wants to assist me. This could have been handled personally, if anyone had bothered. This family inquiry could have been ended long time ago, if any one had bothered. But instead, my 'family' prefers to whine.

Yes, once your information is out there, it's there. But wouldn't you rather have your information submitted correctly instead of what someone else thinks they know? The page where I am working on my family tree is password protected, so it is not 'out there' for everyone to see. I even have the option of restricting how much can be seen by those linking their tree to mine.

BTW, sometimes its a matter of forgetting to put a name in the space provided, but I think it cowardly to submit an anonymous post. Like you said, you can use initials.

Well, that's all I have to say for now. If you don't like it, don't post here.

Reasons to be considerate.
by: Anonymous

I too have a close connection to the Phillpott's of Spanish Town, and I to understand and have the desire to find and keep a record of my ancestry.

What I believe everyone needs to realize is that once something is out onto the Internet you almost always cannot erase that information completely.

This information does not only offend peoples sensitivities but there is very real danger of identity theft (Google the term) and related mischief.

Just search your name on http://www.123people.com and yes the most detailed info requires payment but its scary how much information is publicly available that we do not need to add to it by posting peoples full names and their familial links without their express permission to an open forum such as this.

I realize the sophistication level of everyone as regards the Internet is not the same so I would urge all who have done this to attempt to edit their posts to remove full names and possibly use initials etc for references.

The suggestion to take this to a password moderated site where access can be limited via customizable levels (family trees) and edited as needed would be quite wise.

Regards

The Real meaning of Family
by: Claudette Phillpotts

I have personally been blessed by knowing my family history. It is a blessing to know where you come from because it gives you a foundation, pride, and great appreciation of where you are going. I am proud of the fact that my aunt Doris Phillpotts Sealy raised me.

She was a very loving kind and giving christian woman. Who i miss dearly and loved so greatly. It is a shame that others are offended about us knowing our legacy.


Legacy is a treasure that passes from generation to generation. For those who are truly interested in knowing who their family is,I commend you for continuing the search.

It is so sad that for whatever reasons we have to sift through wheat to find out who we are related to. But when we do we will fill all the pieces of the puzzle. That has been scattered through the years gone by. So as we Learn of our family Let us be proud that we come from a very gifted intelligent multi-talented family.

by: Imogen

Hi Kim, Sorry about my message appearing three times not sure what happen there. Just a correction HUBERT PHILLPOTTS was my great grandfather not great great grandfather. Sorry about that, getting all confused looking for too many relatives at once. with regards Imogen

Phillpotts
by: Imogen

Hi Kim, I was wondering if my family of Phillpotts fits in anywhere. My great great grandfather was a Hubert Phillpotts he was born 1874 in Glamorgan Wales. He obviously moved to Burnley Lancashire where he lived the remainder of his days. My gandmother was a Marian Phillotts my father's mother. My father always said they were related to Eden Phillpotts 1862-1960. My sister and have become curious about our relatives since the recent death of my mother and my father now in the throws of dementia. It made us realise just how little we knew and so have decided to investigate our family tree. Let's see what we find! with regards

in response to my imaginary death!
by: claudette

whoever posted the lie of my suppose to be untimely death must be truly suffering from some serious psychological issues. for the record, I HAVE NOT NOR AM I IN DANGER OF LOOSING MY LIFE. Even though some wicked anonymous close relative who has spent time in a mental institution desires it to be so. I know who you are! and you better hope you remain alive and well!
I bind up every lie, and rebuke every generational word curse in the mighty name of Jesus Christ of nazareth!
I hope and pray you get the necessary mental and physical help that you need. Since you continually desire to live and operate in such a debilitating capacity.

April 8 from (no name listed)
Thanks for the cousinconnect website. No, I am not on there yet.

April 11 from Anthony
Just looking for any family history---names, dates, locations, interesting stories.
I am not using a professional service. I am using Geni.com for my main site to compile my information and some others more in a reference sense.
As for folks getting upset---I have no clue. Perhaps I opened a can of worms and didn?t know it.
I am searching for family wherever the clues lead me.

April 11 from Anonymous
I have not done a mass mailing using Facebook although, there seems to be many
Relatives on Facebook. Thanks for the suggestion.

Janice---thanks for joining our postings. I will look for you on Facebook soon. I am not
sure where Scoop comes into the picture. Or Allan. I do have an uncle named Alan.

May 1 from Anonymous
The family info being collected by both Claudette and myself is being posted on Geni.com. If you go there a begin a family tree of your own, the program will recognize any common ancestors and ask if we wish to ?merge? trees. Starting a tree of your own gives you an element of privacy (various settings are available), your own password access, and allows you to work your tree independant of ours for the time being. You can email me at ozarkat ?a t? mac ?d o t? com (replace words in quotations with appropriate symbol. This hopefully prevents webcrawlers from collecting my email address and spamming me to death!) We can share info.

May 1 from Janice
Yes, I remember Rupert being mentioned to me. I believe he is my grandfather?s half-brother. I have yet to fill in down his line. I will make note of your information. If you also begin a tree at www.Geni.com, our trees will eventually ?match? our common relative and we can merge. Below shows how you and I relate:
Thomas Chas. P (GGF)-->John Chester P (GF)-->John A, O?s Phillpotts (F)--> Kim (me)
Thomas Chas. P (GGF)-->Rupert P. (GF)-->Winston P (F)-->Janice (you)

PART 2

May 2 from Anonymous

Not sure why you think the comments of family linking up not making sense. Can I somehow help it make sense?
Naming of parents, grandparents, etc will not do any good here unless you know how they relate to one another. (One person?s brother may be another?s grandfather). Once again, I invite you to start a tree at www.Geni.com It?s very easy.
How far back has the family been traced? With help from Claudette, the family tree goes back to John Piper Phillpotts (1744-1814) and his wife, Sybella Phillpotts. We currently have 7 generations on our family tree.
Also, to help everyone here, posting as ?Anonymous? doesn?t help anyone link to you. We don?t know who ?Anonymous? is or how you relate to us. Of course, I suspect some don?t want to be linked (?).

May 2 from (no name listed)
A question of privacy. I would think if you had an issue about something being private, it would have been told in confidence and you need to specifically ask that person not to share a private piece of information. As for the Geni.com website, if you begin your own tree, you have a password protected account; trees will not automatically merge unless you give your ?okay?; you may select your level of privacy for various options. For instance, my privacy setting for my ?family? allows 2nd cousins and closer (for me and my husband?s family) to view our tree. Also allowed are in-laws of our first cousins.

May 2 from Pauline
Hi Pauline, I don?t think I have made your acquaintance. I do not yet have you listed in my tree. How are we related? I am not sure what information posted here has offended you. You mentioned, in the past year I have not found the information I am seeking. Probably because I have a life other than on the internet that I must attend to. This is sort of a hobby for me in my spare time. Also, there was a generational mistake made in our family tree during a merging. This problem had to be resolved before continuing. Schedule conflicts and interuptions of internet access delayed this repair. It is done and and I will try to carry on.
As for agreeing with Myrna?s April posting, I assume you mean the speaking on the phone instead of posting online. Well, I am now answering all these postings at 2am in the morning. I don?t suppose anyone would appreciate me calling at 2am. Thankfully, I don?t work on Fridays normally. I have covered this subject before and invited anyone to contact me directly.

Yes, it seems Janice and I are cousins. We have the same Great grandfather, Thomas Charles Phillpotts. I suppose once I get in contact with Janice she will have a lot to share with me.

May 2 from Anonymous
Regarding online tree and passwords. I think I have covered that elsewhere sufficiently.
If it is too much work to start your own tree, feel free to contact me and we can share info.

May 2 from Pauline
You are not happy with your cousins? names beling listed. How do they feel? They haven?t said anything to me. As for the older family members...if they are deceased, I doubt they care.
Sometimes in life you cannot get answers, sometimes you can?t have it your way either. Surely there is a compromise.

May 2 from Anonymous
Family photos. Somewhere I have some photos, but they don?t go back too far as we misplaced a box sometime when I was just a kid. The Geni.com website also provides for placing photos, short videos, and links to other websites.

May 2 from Pauline
I still do not understand why a name, date or relationship is offensive to anyone. I agree that ?anonymous? postings should come with a name attached.

CLAUDETTE is ALIVE and Well and....
by: Anonymous

Someone mistakenly reported here in this forum that
CLAUDETTE CHRISTINE PHILLPOTTS, is dead.

I can assure you, SHE IS NOT DEAD. She is ALIVE and kicking and pretty darn mad that someone would post such information. She has a good idea who posted it, and hun, you better watch your back. She's mad, mad, mad.


Now, on to other subjects.

Family, friends and contacts. I'm sorry I have been away from the message board for quite sometime. Life has kept me hopping. At the end of June, my beloved mother-in-law passed away. We are still dealing with everything that entails. I see there are so many postings here I need to reply to. Please be patient and I will do what I can as soon as I can.

Thanks,

Kim Phillpotts Tinsley

Kim, this has really taking off. Sorry I didn't have much to add to your data base, as I told you before the info I had that Aunt Helen and Dad had given me was stolen when I was living with Dad on 6th St. in Montara...it was contained in what I refered to as my "zebra box". If anyone out there reading this is the one who lifted it and still has the documents, you can see from the following messages that the information was quite dear to me and my sister. If you wish to return the documents, mail it to me at:

Response to April 5th postings (part 1)
by: Kim Phillpotts Tinsley

(I am posting this in two sections because I have exceeded the posting limitations. I hope I get this right and the first half is followed by the second half.)

Greetings to the Phillpotts family members.

Sometime ago, I began posting on this webpage to find information about the Phillpotts family. As my dad began his descent into Alzheimer's/dementia/senility whatever you choose to call it, I realized I was losing an opportunity to find out about my family. Dad passed away last April and as his remaining siblings have been dwindling in number, I knew I needed to act on this quest.

I was born in the U.S. and although some of my father's family are in this country, they are spread far and wide. I have not had much of an opportunity to obtain family information first hand (by telephone or face to face as suggested by Myrna) from anyone except my Aunt Ruth (in Idaho) or Uncle Joshua (in Canada). I last saw Aunt Ruth about 5 years ago and Uncle Joshua back in 1996 when my mother died. I didn't really get to know my grandmother very well and Granddad died before I was born. Just in the last few months, through this message board, I became acquainted with Claudette and she has been trying to help me fit together pieces of our family tree.

Now, please let me address the recent comments on this page. I was rather taken aback when I first read them, to say the least.
Myrna: I have no clue who you are, but thanks for writing. I would be more than happy to be in touch with family in a way that would allow us to speak on the phone or face to face. When will you next be coming to Arkansas? Or, how about your phone number? I will post my email address below and you can write me personally. You have insinuated I am trying to dig up old stories. Wow, I had no clue there was something scandalous to be digging into! Surely no one is harbouring guilty feelings or skeletons in a closet? As for the privacy issue, I am not writing a book to be published, I am seeking out family and family history.

Response to April 5th postings (part 2)
by: Kim Phillpotts Tinsley

?Anonymous?: Okay, the Clarke?s are in the UK. Fram what Claudette had said, I got that drift. I do not know any of their names or where to even begin looking. Uncle Howard? I believe he is a first cousin, once removed. I do not know him or his contact information---care to share?
Bryl Gilpin: Thanks for including a first and last name, it may assist in finding family. Thanks also for mentioning the National Records in Spanish Town. I had no clue of what office/agency I should contact. Can anyone provide contact info for a family member in Jamaica that might be able to help me get this information?
?Anonymous?: Gosh, I hate going about this the long way. Do you have Howard?s contact info and can you give me names of his family members and contact info as well?
Finally, I see Claudette has added a more recent comment. It has always been in the back of my mind that our family does not seem to keep in close contact or dare I say, get along. I do not know why that is. Sounds like Claudette knows a lot more than I do.
But seriously, whatever anyone?s hang-ups are, I don?t care. If you are at odds with another family member, I don?t care, that?s your business. Just tell me about you. Tell me about your immediate family?.do you have interesting stories about your parents or do you have children or grandchildren you are proud of? Tell me about them. It?s not necessary to dig up the dirt. But it is interesting to know some of the details that have helped make our family who it is. Please consider sharing!

old skeletons
by: claudette

why is it that people have to get so nasty about other family members trying to find out who they are related to.
we call ourselves christians and being mean spirited and scandalous is definately not representing the love of God.
my first cousin and my aunt ought to be ashamed of themselves! I don't care how many hundred year skeletons are trying to fly out of the closet. Get over the nonsense and scandalous lies. we are all related so get over it.
It has been a pleasure talking to you kimberly and i am honoured to have you as my cousin.
and i am honoured to have done the family tree with you. every phillpotts who wants to know their heritage should not be denied the pleasure of knowing that we all come from a very interesting and unique family.

Might I ask who you are, oh anonymous one? You didn't leave your name. Are you another relative of ours?

To ANDREA
by: Kim Phillpotts Tinsley

Andrea,

Happy holidays! I hope the season and weather is treating you well.

I hadn't heard back from you, so I thought I'd send another message.

I spoke to Claudette tonight and she mentioned to me, if you gave us your grandfather's and great-grandfather's name, we'd have more of an idea how the Phillpotts families connect with the Phillpotts in England.

As an unfortunate side note, Claudette will be travelling to England in the next couple of weeks as her mother passed away yesterday (12/7/09). While there, she will try to gather what family information she can. If you get those names to me, she may find leads for you as well.

Please reply to my yahoo address, with PHILLPOTTS FAMILY in the subject line. ozarkat@yahoo.com

Sincerely,

Kim

Andrea, Hello!

The answer to your question is...YES!

Fortunately, I was recently contacted by Claudette Phillpotts, her grandfather and my grandfather are brothers. She has many relatives in England. I would suggest you contact her as well at: speak2mi@hotmail.com
My 'public' email address is ozarkat@yahoo.com, you can write me there for additional information. Drop me a line!

Both Claudette and I are on Facebook---are you?

I look forward to hearing from you. By the way---I believe Claudette said she will be temporarily offline till after the holidays...please don't feel ignored if you don't get an immediate response.

Phillpotts family and Clarke famils or Lazarus-Clarke family
by: Kim (Phillpotts) Tinsley

Update---

Claudette Phillpotts is my second cousin....our grandfathers are brothers!

We have made contact and have joined efforts in combining family trees.

Claudette is a wealth of family information and I am most pleased to make her acquaintance! To date, she has contributed another 69 family members to the tree I have been working on.

As for the "Watson" question.....apparently, Watson is my grandmother's brother.

And to clear up another quasi-mystery, her father (my maternal great grand father) was Lazarus Clarke who married Mary Emily Louise (last name?) Clarke. Due to a mix-up in town, another "Mary Clarke's" purchases were being charged to the family's accounts, therefore it's said, they then became known as the Lazarus-Clarke family to avoid further confusion.

If any one has information of the Clarke or Lazarus-Clarke family, I would appreciate being contacted.

Family members include:
Lazarus Clarke (my Great-grandfather)
Mary Emily Louise Clarke or Lazarus-Clarke (G-grandmother) their (that I know of) children Lena Louise and Watson

Thanks again!

Kim
