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.

Biography

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.

Researching

  • Glann-origin of the name; hope to start a Y-DNA study once I get my hubby to take a test. We recently found some Glanns in Australia that I'd like to see about connecting
  • Stevens in Scotland in the early 1800s
  • Browns of Nova Scotia, Canada and Yorkshire and Lambeth, England; I guess it's time to start a Yorkshire Browns ONS to pursue this wall
  • Brickwall-Thomas McQuiston and Elizabeth Thomas
  • Recently broke down a family brick wall and am learning about research in old Bohemian lines-Kleinhampl, Zeithaml, Westerovsky. Slowly flipping through parish records to find my third great grandfather.
  • Origins of my grandmother's family from Poland/Prussia/Austria, the Brocks/Brooks and the Popkes
  • Helping out with merging, connecting, sourcing, and clean up throughout Wikitree
  • Adding the family of some of my closest friends and in-laws and helping them research

Abby, I think I figured it out and understand now why you use two browsers. I downloaded a new Firefox, used that to access the Texas google, to signed the code, and took pre 1700 exam... I think I have done all...

Hi Abby, thanks for your concern.

Sorry that I was busy doing other things but today I have tried on another operation system and have got it done just now with success. I was using explorer now using mozilla. I noted other functions been improved as the pop up of already written names, surnames.

By the way, I was trying also to add a pre-1500 person and the system is asking me to get the badge, seems that I have the qualifications but need to be promoted can I get your kind help on this? Thanks a lot!
