In 1989 he graduated from Fitchburg High School and started at Lyndon State College in the beautiful Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. After two years in the small business program at Lyndon he transferred to New York University. He graduated from NYU with a degree in economics in 1993.
After college he stayed in New York City and worked as the managing editor of a small mail order book catalog named Laissez Faire Books. Before Amazon.com this was the only source for many unusual books on libertarian philosophy and free-market economics. In 1994, he started experimenting with the Internet to sell books for Laissez Faire. The e-mail list he created there was one of the first of its kind.
In 1995 Chris left his job to create a libertarian community and networking site called Free-Market.Net: The Freedom Network (FMN). This site has been called "the mother of all libertarian websites" for its early work in promoting usage of the Internet among free-market organizations and individuals.
In 1997 he created a non-profit organization in Chicago called The Henry Hazlitt Foundation to be a home for FMN and its sister sites including libertarian.org, ifeminists.com and Bureaucrash. The foundation grew to employ five people full-time and more than a dozen people part-time.
In 2000 Chris met Megan McClellan who was finishing her math degree at the University of Chicago.
The next year, Chris left his non-profit work to be more entrepreneurial again. And to pay off his student loans. This led to the creation of FAQ Farm in 2002, which later became WikiAnswers and then Answers.com. WikiAnswers is a collaborative question and answer site where users can ask a question about anything and other users help answer them. The Q&As become permanent resources so that the same question never has to be asked twice.
In 2004 Chris and Megan moved back from Chicago to New York City. The next year, in 2005, Megan was offered a job in London and they took that opportunity to see Europe.
In 2006 Chris and Megan returned from England. They bought a home in northern Westchester County, NY.
Late that year Chris sold his WikiAnswers business. During 2007 he worked with Answers.com to integrate the site into their company. In both 2007 and 2008 WikiAnswers was the fastest growing site among the largest US websites. It became a top 25 US website with millions of visitors per day.
In 2008 Chris began work on this site, WikiTree, and has been working on it full-time ever since.

Chris is a Wiki Genealogist following these tags:
- I feel strongly that DNA testing is a key component of our single family tree project. If you have suggestions for improving DNA integration on WikiTree please post in G2G.
- My mother's maiden name. The current brick wall is Richard Howes b. ca. 1816 in Ireland.
- Some members use this tag in G2G to suggest improvements; it's not official.
- Legge is my great grand-grandmother's name. The family is from Nova Scotia. I'd be interested in participating in a one name study if anyone starts one.
- Oldford is my maternal grandmother's name. Her parents were from Newfoundland. I'd be interested in participating in a one name study if anyone starts one. Let me know!
- Storrs is my great grand-grandmother's name. The family is from Connecticut. I'd be interested in participating in a one name study if anyone starts one.
- My Whitten ancestors are from Maine. I think most New England Whittens are related, but southern Whittens may not be.
- I do like to hear the nice things people say. :-)
- If you're a programmer please join our apps project. I believe that empowering independent developers is essential to the future growth of WikiTree.

You can use the One-to-One Compare tool to compare two people on Gedmatch. You'll get a screen where you put in your GedMatch kit # and the other person's kit #. The only other thing I change on that form is to click "Yes" to show the graph. The rest of it you can ignore and just click "Submit". If you ran the graph option, the final result will be at the bottom of the page.

Want to thank you so very much for the Family List you compiled on WiKiTree; It is phenomenal! It appears (uncertain) that we are 20th cousins. However, I have traced many other ancestors to Thomas Davenport and others we share in the Relationship Finder. Also, my mtDNA Haplogroup is U6a7. I have no doubt that we are connected. I also come up as being the 20th cousin of Queen Elizabeth II. My DNA shows that I have English ancestors. I know I have French, Spanish, Italian, etc. (royal) ancestry; confirmed with Ancestry and 23andMe testing. I intend to peruse your list to see what I can come up with. This is great fun for me. Sincerely, Jeannette

I noticed the Category: Orders, decorations, and medals is now under Category: Military. Not all Orders are awarded for military service. For example, Australian Honours are awarded to many people for community service. The Order of the British Empire recognises distinguished service to the arts and sciences, public services outside the Civil Service and work with charitable and welfare organisations of all kinds.
Is it possible to find another home for the top category, (which, to be pedantic, should use capitlisation for each noun as in Orders, Decorations, and Medals) please?

Please, please, adapt the input phrase 'First-hand information as remembered by...' It is clearly wrong for me to say this when I have researched it from a Parish Record, copied it from a Marriage Certificate, etc. etc. I have changed over 300 in the past month, and it bugs me each time. I KNOW I can overwrite it. I KNOW it forces me to think. I change it to 'entered by...'. This means anyone can check with me if they want to. I have followed the definitive rule DWWA!

If you ever went out in B-town we likely met in person. I would have been the small clean-cut guy that all the big burly guys listened to... at least the 2nd time :)

I was having difficulty when I first starting greeting with my messages running past the dotted line box perimeter. You had mentioned that a space at the beginning was a code not to break the line. Evidently, we were talking about different lines. Anyway, thanks again. I do have another question...how do I provide a link for the people I greet to things like G2G or Honor Code, to cite two examples. (Did I give myself away that I have ZERO computer skills?)
