Would anyone like to have a go at adding Karen Anderson, neé June Millichamp Kruse, author and wife of Poul Anderson? I don’t think that Poul has his own profile either.

I added Poul - working on creating a stub for Karen now.

I got as far as her paternal g-grandfather and there's some conflicting information on him that will need to be resolved. He's a gateway ancestor from Germany immigrating to the US between 1865 and 1870. Some sources show his birth date as 1845 and others 1855, so I'll probably stop with him before things get too messy and fill in other parts of her tree. There are strong ties to the Millichamp family as well, but unfortunately neither the Kruse line nor the Millichamp line in WikiTree has a strong showing, so very likely no easy connections there. Her mother has the Payne and Turley lines, which do have a stronger profile base on WikiTree, so it's more likely we'll get a connection to the global tree that way. Either way we'll do what we can to fill in her tree. If others want to participate - please do! The profiles are open and I've indicated who the next link in the line should be. Feel free to correct me if I've got one of them wrong. Thanks.
Wonderful, thanks for your work Scott. :)
OK - got a long distance connection through her Millichamp family - it was funny, as I had created the previous Millichamp family on another Notable.

So at the moment (after the links update tonight), the link will run through the same line as Greer Garson's. There's probably better and shorter connections, but at least this will be a good initial one.

Current connection looks like:

Karen is 21 degrees from Amelia Earhart48 degrees from Stephen Hawking22 degrees from Jamie Nelson and 24 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II Windsor on our single family tree. Check your connections or find your genealogical relationship with Karen.

I just connected her Payne line - we'll see if there are any closer connections after the links update tonight.

Karen is 21 degrees from Amelia Earhart47 degrees from Stephen Hawking22 degrees from Jamie Nelson and 19 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II Windsor on our single family tree. Check your connections or find your genealogical relationship with Karen.

Hmm - slightly closer to the Queen and one step closer to Hawking. Didn't affect a whole lot, but nice to see it had at least a little impact.

Looking at Poul now - there's apparently a fairly significant amount of research done on his family in Denmark, so I'm verifying it now before bringing it over.
