- Abby (Brown) Glann's Profile
- Family Tree & Genealogy Tools
Weekends are family time at our house, so if you try to contact me from Friday evening until lunch-time-ish Monday (US Central Daylight Savings time), I most likely won't get back to you until Monday afternoon, unless it sounds like an emergency. Thanks for understanding!
I have actually been a member since early August 2011. A merge with a profile a cousin created for me changed out the dates.
Abby's Tools My free-space page for photos to use as backgrounds, as well as miscellaneous family photos that I have yet to identify. Feel free to use; add yourself to any of the photos to use on your own profiles for backgrounds!
Abby grew up on a small acreage in the Midwest. After high school she attended Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa, majoring in Religion and English (poetry focus). It was here that she took a genealogy class and an obsession was born. She also met her husband while in school there, and their union only worsened the obsession, as his grandparents were all very practiced genealogists. Abby took on the role of family historian for both her own families, and her husband's, and has been trying to maintain and continue research.
Abby is able to work on family history in the evenings, running a small farm that focuses on producing wool and angora fleece during the day, spinning and dyeing the fleece, and making products from the yarn, as well as making and selling gourmet, small-batch locally sourced honey caramels for market. She home schools her four young children.
Recently internet got a little better out here in rural Iowa, so she has no excuse, other than keeping a slew of fluffy animals and crazy kids alive, to be on Wikitree, a community she has grown to love, all the time. The spirit of collaboration is something she had waited for for quite sometime while the internet grew as a source for genealogy work. She trickles through lines, going back over old work to perform merges, clean up profiles, and re-examine research she did when she first started having an interest in genealogy, to verify shady sources, add new ones, and always hope to find new connections and lines.

Please add the format Categorization Project Member badge to my profile. I am a member of the Dutch Roots project and we want to, among others, place links to the Dutch categories in a central location (Nederlands Portaal/Dutch portal) to be accessible in a tree structure. In addition, we want to reorganize these categories. Thanks in advance. Joop.

Thank you, I just noticed that be is entered as 0981. I assume it should be 1981. Do you have direct knowledge? Do you have a connection? Thanks again, Len Suelter

I would like to become a part of the Categorization project. I have been working on Birth, death, and marriage categories lately. But hopefully, I will greatly expand my efforts. I proposed for AutoWikiBrowser to be enabled for WikiTree, and that could really be a breakthrough for the whole effort. ~~~~

I've noticed the changes you made to those unconnected profiles of mine that were previously under Category:Global_Family_Reunion_Unconnected
Thank you for that. Now my question is what is the proposed structure, I saw you put one profile under Germany (which is pretty broad and high level) and all my profiles from Asiago under the Province of Vicenza (where they are together with two other profiles under the Italy category.
If there was an announcement on this maybe you can just link me to the G2G, otherwise you might want to consider a G2G announcement so that more people will work on this.
