My name is Regan Chambers, a retired intelligence officer. I have been puttering around genealogy since the 1980s, fortunate to have a cousin who was president of the Tennessee Genealogy Society and gave me the bug when I was a preteen. While I’m no where near a professional like many of you, I am a very avid amateur, and love connecting the dots and putting meat on the bones. Did I say I like cemeteries?

My families wander around the eastern half of the country since the 1600/1700s. The Chambers into Virginia, then North Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. Railroad Irish Quinnellys, also in the South, to Georgia, maybe Maryland before, then across to Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Ruperts/Rupards into Pennsylvania, then some down to North Carolina, Tennessee. Kentucky, Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas.    

My lines besides Chambers, Quinnelly and Rupard/Rupert, include Derby, Ayres, Avent, Mask, Lytle, Crouse/Krause, Boerner, Gronle, Schmidt, Seibert, Boone, Lawson, and Gratiot.

I look forward to being an active, contributing member of WikiTree. Thank you for your time.

Glad you are here! This is a wonderful place. Not everyone is a “professional” genealogist here. I’m a complete amateur and I stumble around a lot! Welcome!

Welcome, Regan!

It looks like you are off to a great start.

I see you list Boone (I have some Boone) and when I looked at your ancestors I see Missouri a couple of times (I have several Missouri ancestors) .  I checked the "Relationship to Me" link and the "Connection to Me" link, but do not see a relationship between us yet.  Please continue building your tree, so I can see how we connect!

Connecting to others is fun because you learn about cousins and maybe communicate with them. I have exchanged email with 2nd cousins I met here, that I would never have found without WikiTree.  It is also really a good way to build your tree because you find connections and hints so often.

Always come back to G2G with any questions, there are so many people here to help - you will never be frustrated if you ask!
