Maggie has participated in 6 out of 52 weeks during the 2019 52 Ancestors Challenge.


The WikiTree community welcomes you  !


I think most peoples' interests in family genealogy usually begin at family gatherings, like a funeral or reunion. I know that was the case for me while a teenager because in three consecutive years, I lost a beloved grandparent. Each time the trek to the graveyards during the funerals brought me to headstones surrounding the newly deceased grandparent and each time, most everyone did not know how they were related. I put the family jigsaw puzzle together by identifying everyone through the records office, church records and obituaries.

My genealogical forays were furthered not only by photographing the gravestones of my family but also the Early American gravestones of rural Vermont and New York (I studied art history with an emphasis on early American folk arts). Later, I was lucky to finish a certificate program at Brigham Young in the early 80's and began to help other people with their genealogical queries on the side.

My roots are not very "American"; my earliest immigrant settler sailed down the Erie Canal from France in 1827. I spent years reading French microfilms for my own Alsatian ancestry. My mother is largely Eastern European so I branched out in microfilms from Hungary, Slovakia and Russia Poland. My children's roots have taken me through American records, specifically colonial New Jersey and old Philadelphia. Recently, I tackled my impossible Irish ancestors in county Kerry with slow but steady research in their government records.


I lead the Polish Roots Poland Project as well as the Slavic Roots project.

I co-lead the The Holocaust Project which was started by the amazing Gaile.

I lead the Irish Roots sub-project for county Kerry while I break bricks walls on my impossible Irish roots.

I am also an interim leader for the William Penn project while the phenomenal project coordinator SJ Baty keeps it up for WikiTree.

Although I have no family connections, you will find me cleaning up certain Virginia profiles for the U.S. History project as well as any Quaker settlers in New Jersey.

I occasionally lend a hand in the Magyarország, Slovensko and other Slavic category projects at WikiTree. I can also help read Hungarian (Magyar) records or any records written in Latin if you need assistance. If you have a profile of a Hungarian ancestor here at WikiTree, let me know if you need sources. If you have found naturalization records or passenger records but can not understand/read the village for your immigrant Hungarian ancestor because of historical boundary changes, I will help pinpoint location.

I used to co-administer, with genealogist Nick Gombash, the Hungary Exchange genealogy group at Facebook if you need help doing research in Hungary. I also have a rare Hungarian One Name Study registered with the One Name Guild. The Study is hosted by the Guild at their website Stermenszky One Name Study.

My back-up files ( upload 2016 ) are on RootsWeb. Stermenszky Files. I am still in process of moving them all to WikiTree.

My Hungary surnames are:

Nagy, Stermenszky, Sebő, Rakai, Lorintz, Adam, Simon, Rozgany, Zsebik/Sebik, Farkas, Petö, Danko, Gyerus, Haluska, Vladikovsky/Hladikovsky, Polgaŕ, Söss/Sass, Plachetka, Chudi/Chudy, Kovacs, Mész, Szabo, Soka/Zsoka, Fabriczky, Istvanek/Istvanyik/Stephanik, Gothard, Skolnik, Pal, Gaal, Gäll, Császár, Svab.

Locations in Hungary (and some now in Slovakia):

Abaúj-Torna: Vendégi, Bódva-Vendégi (Hostovice), Jablonca (Silická Jablonica), Szin, Bódvaszilas, Szögliget, Varbóc, Hidvégardó, Derenk (extinct), Zubogy, Szádalmás/Almás (Jablonov nad Turňou), Körtvélyes (Hrušov). Borsod: Szendrő. Gömör: Krasznahorkaváralja (Krásnohorské Podhradie), Borzova (Silická Brezová), Rozsnyó (Rožňava), Végtelke (Slavec). Pozsony: Szekula (Sekule), Malaczka (Malacky).


Tree of Life

If you are lucky enough to be a genealogist, you are lucky enough. – Ruth Padilla ________________________________________________________________

"Genealogy is not about genes, it is about reconstructing family relationships, which are not necessarily genetic relationships. The 16th century heralds were doing genealogy long before Mendel discovered genetics." ~ A One-Name Researcher

Hi Maggie, I bought the book called "The West Family Register" inside the book it has 3 family trees not just the one I see on my West tree Someone has posted 4 consecutive Nathaniel's and no where in these, three trees, are there 4 consecutive Nathaniel's. In the book, the name Nathaniel is mentioned 16 times. So I think there is a big mistake. On my personal tree, I have traced to a Robert that leads to the Gov. John West tree, not all these Nathaniel's. The other two trees start from Anthony West 1652 and Joseph West abt. 1670. I posted in each of their names a copy of the trees. None of which show 4 consecutive Nathaniel's. Anyway, it looks to me that there is a lot that is messed up and I think showing those trees will help clear things up.

Looking through the kids, I'll switch US Southern Colonies to Virginia for the ones with that project box, since Southern Colonies is dormant & add Agnes, Stith and Drury to be managed by Virginia also. Bolling-17 could use some attention... I'm inclined to leave him alone, but I probably should add him also (same for Bolling-16).

Probably the only child that needs to be project-protected already is... John Bolling-10. But he doesn't have a project as manager... Does Pocahontas Project have a project account? If not, I can add Virginia to his profile too (but notables project box would need to become a sticker).

I think that covers everybody.

On 23 Dec 2018 at 20:24 GMT Liz (Noland) Shifflett wrote:

was just rereading everything... Abby said to be prepared for possibly increased traffic for Bolling-34. Do you think we need to extend project protection to any of his immediate/extended family to prevent that extra attention from spilling over and resulting in inappropriate changes to their profiles?

His wives are protected, and you're a profile manager for the profiles of his parents & siblings, but I notice his grandmother Anne Clarke-297 recently acquired parents & I don't see any source to support that they are her parents. (It also looks like Elizabeth m Kennon is back as their daughter... you'd removed her in October.)

... to be continued...

Thanks for your help.

Part 2 According to my mother, both parents had been married before, so there were several children. During WW2 , there was still family over there, maybe a brother and a couple of sisters. Before the war, Grandma still wrote to some one there and they would take the letters to the local and have them translated, then do the same when they got a reply. Sorry, I've gone on and on, this is what I remember. If you can help I would be forever grateful. Thanks for listening.

Maggie I am not sure what I need or where from. I have heard Dresden and Darmstadt. I am not at all familiar with Germany. and haven't looked at maps. My grandfather came over when he was 16 . I think somewhere I have a copy of his naturalization papers . I would like a cop of a birth certificate or family papers. His name was Charles ( Carl ?) Gottfried Gerbig. He came on the ship Koln,I think in 1882 .,I believe to Baltimore. I know not all family stories are true. There was a story he was in school with the Kaiser's son ( grandpa's family were high, class? Anyway the boys got into a fight and grandpa left a mark on the other face. So his family sent him away. I am pretty sure his mother's maiden name was Waldeck.

I appreciate all of your suggestions and links! It seems like St. Francis' Church in Blocton was indeed a Catholic church; in fact, it may have been an Italian church. However, it seems like it was demolished sometime after 1970 (as said in the second paragraph of the History section of the below web link).

Apparently, there are at least death records that were at some point transferred over from St. Francis' to St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church in Montevallo (Blocton is no longer a town), according to the Find A Grave page of my great-great-grandma [1].

I will most definitely be getting into contact with that church sometime soon!

Thank you so much for adding me to the Slavic Roots project! I would sincerely appreciate it if you (or really anyone) would help me attempt to find vital records of my Slavic ancestor, or even to help me accurately identify him (e.g., his ethnicity).

It may be slightly wrong, but his name on his immigration record was indexed on FamilySearch as Mathias Schustsishwitz, which is obviously an incredibly rare surname. The record says his last residence was "Rudolfsuertz" (Novo Mesto in Slovene), and he was a German speaker with a (clearly) Germanized name. He also shows up in, so categorizing him is quite the challenge! However, as 23andMe says that I am 5.7% Slovene, he may have been at least mostly ethnically Slovene.

Shawnee Heritage III

Shawnee Heritage III has a complete, updated information from families with surnames A - L.‬ page 94. This information show’s Edward’s Marrage to an unknown woman and the Marrage license of Susannah Ann (Bolling) Arrington (abt. 1767 - abt. 1822)show’s Edward as her father. This should be evidence enough that they were related. There is evidence to show that she was the daughter of Edward. Not being named in a will does not mean you are not related. I was not mentioned in my father’s will but that doesn’t mean that I was not his daughter. Also I do not think the “will” that you mentioned is complete and is only your version of the will. It should be transcribed word for word. To ignore evidence is saying nothing at all except your keeping the norm. The goal is to prove the point via evidence as I have done. Lastly I give evidence of my DNA showing Native American Indian and many matches to the Bolling Family members on AncestryDNA and 23 you and me. Surly they both can’t be wrong. But detaching the “child” from the “parent” will not remove their relation of father and daughter.

Hi Maggie,

Greg Lavoie, Dave Rutherford and I have put a lot of work into restructuring the Canada Project. Have a look at the new project page.

You'll see that we've changed the project name to the Canada Project and the badge will be changed shortly. We've done this in order to provide lots of ways for people to contribute to Canadian Profiles. We've also moved towards a team approach with top level teams being lead by Project Coordinators and sub-teams being lead by Team Leaders.

Would you like to continue in the Canada Project, and if so, which team(s) would you like to be on?

Let me know if you have any questions. Once I hear back from you I'll add you to the Google group and get you set up in your team(s).

I found out on an Italian website listing victims of the Shoah that he died in Milan, Italy in 1943 (I believe it was around the time when they started deporting Jews in that part of Italy) but did not die in a camp or a ghetto, from what I can understand. What Holocaust Victim category would I use in his profile, or would I just use the template only?

Hi Maggie!


I tackled some of this yesterday. The LNAB was about evenly split between what appeared to be three GEDCOM merges from long ago. Loftin, Lofton, and even Loflin was there. Many duplicate profiles, most of which had no managers. So I adopted and merged what I could. There is still much to be done. For example there was the wife Eleanor Williams, Eleanor Unknown, and Eleanor Hellenor. Yeah. I have not sourced the Williams yet or I would know which direction to go with that. As far as Lofton or Loftin, the sources are equally split with both spellings. Later generations adopted one variant over the other so with those it was easier. Does that help?

I don't know if you have received it because every time I post an answer or query I see the message, That is not the right answer! Even though there was no question or answer needed. I don't know if it is because I am not on a persons trusted list or not. Also Bridget' Shelleys branch and the Michelgroves are an adopted branch which because I have not yet got the pre 1500 badge I cannot update or correct. Wish I hadn't adopted that one yet, as I am getting several messages telling me that a child cannot be born !00 years after or before it's parents death.

Kind regards, Carole

Hi Maggie, our DNA link is either through the O Mahony family of Blennerville, or a Sullivan/Groves/ O'Connor connection in Ballydwyer, Ballymacelligot, Tralee. Happy New Year to you.

Thank you Maggie for your helpful advice. I thought I had completed my volunteer tag page but I am still identified as a guest. Shall I fill the form in again? I am not at all confident about any of the processes, but can't wait to start!

Cheers, Ruth

Thank you. I did some research on Marie Galway and realized what an amazing lady she was. To be honest, I think she had a more positive impact than her husband on the State, particularly the women, and had some incredible Awards. I got a real thill adding her medals to her Bio. I have actually made a category for Sth Aust Governor's Spouses because I think they deserve equal recognition.

Thanks for that Maggie. I'll add the Gallwey parents and sister later. Are you related to the Galway's? I'm not, but I seem to wander all over Wiki and when I find something interesting that I can do, I can't help myself, and "South Australian Governors" is an interesting subject and close to home. Thanks again. :)

Hi Maggie,

Thank-you for sending me a link to the Holocaust project. I was not aware of this project. I have a lot of interest in this subject, both on a scholarly level and a personal level. I may or may not have had members of my family who perished in the holocaust. My undergraduate work focused on Cleveland newspapers and the Holocaust; specifically how the different newspapers reported on events taking place that pertain to the persecution of Jewish people. Thank-you again. Tracy
