Jodi (Trogstad) Brennan participated with Team Virginia' during the 2018 Source-a-Thon, adding ' sources to profiles.
Jodi is a participant of the Integrators Challenges

Family and Friends passed on



Many of the individuals name, for more than seven generations back, was given to me by my mother, Donna Rae (Burns) Trogstad and father, Marvin Edward Trogstad. They have spent their lives on a journey to give to us as much information, regarding our past, and predecessors as they could. They have done this since I was child.

When adding persons to the tree, I have discovered on many websites, the complete family profile, which confirm dates of 'most' every person my mother and father have provided and those my father, just couldn't quite 'reckon'! And those that were virtually inaccessible to us until the advent of technology, and sites such as Wikitree.

Additionally, there is a family, of my mother's lineage, whom migrated to Iowa from the east coast, that has a complete volume of historical information.

All three of Donna and Marvin Trogstad's daughters were given this volume. Mine was stolen from a storage unit in 2014, when I lived in Willmar Minnesota. It is a scary thing to know that personal information is out there. It is reported to law enforcement.

Also, family's migrated to Ohio, Indiana, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, California, Louisiana, Texas, Texarkana, and Arkansas and many other places to numerous to mention.

When I was a child, my father's Aunt Laura Mosely and my mother's brother Calvin Burns, provided me with information after I sent them tearful letters bemoaning my mothers strife at not having much family information. I'm certain that was the beginning of our families journey.

As life was lived, both parents became instrumental in the size of this tree that is presented to you by me.

This is a family tree for Marvin and Donna Trogstads family, created for the future generations.That said, it only follows, there is only one path to their family's predecessors, of which many of us share a common bond. We are happly engaged in our future and want to be a part of your family as we share our family's strong heritages and past with you.

Thank you for coming to learn about us. We are a strong, loving family. We are hard working people. Enjoy spreading kindness, and understanding, We are open to learning.

Many of our familys have fought in wars for the life we live in America. We are loyal.

We are enthusiastically looking to our past, look to be welcomed as a part of the family's who are currently living and loving their families, in the countries our predecssors left behind when they were seeking a 'better' or 'new' way of life in America.

As we continue to move and shake the atmosphere with enthusiasm of life, we carry this as a committment to encourage our future generations to enjoy their lives respectfully to live those lives to the fullest.

"To the future!" Jodi Rae (Trogstad) Brennan

Jodi - I don't think you need to be put on a trusted list to be able to edit a person as long ago as Mary Drake. You just need to be pre-1700 certified.

The surety barons are the men mentioned in Magna Carta as presenting the barons in any disputes in the future. They formed a sort of senior committee of men to represent the rest of the country when there was a disagreement with the King. The Magna Carta project on Wikitree traces lines from these people down to people who migrated to America.

Stop me if I am wrong, but as it turns out, I am being held to a standard. My Uncle Roland and Aunt Evelyn fostered many children in the State of Minnesota and my parents offered to help the Dunlap children. A series of unfortunate events caused the situation to be considered a social service issue. What? She was standing up on a piece of playground equipment and it injured her in her female gentile. This is no reason to accuse my father of sexual molestation through the futuristic technology. I am the person who was asked what happened. Sheila Dunlap stated it correctly. My father did not sexually molest her. Thank you to Sheila Dunlap. Northwood Iowa police officers needs to discuss our family concerns in public. They cannot hold me hostage to this issue any longer.

Thanks for the message. Whether or not you ever find the link, I think studying these early periods can give another perspective. You can often see relatives on two sides of a conflict for example, and also I think you can question what a relative really is when you get this far back. Slowly as you go back further, genealogy becomes a detailed study of history.

Re:Comment on Ann (Unknown) Wood. Ann and Wood are pretty common names. The way to make a connection to anyone, is one step at a time (starting at whatever ancestor is closest to you, that you're sure of), then using proper genealogical research and sourcing prove your next generation back, and then back one more etc.

Hi Jodi! First - could you share the URL for the Illinois book you mentioned? I have ancestors from there.

Second - whenever you're participating in a Challenge and edit a profile that is eligible for the Challenge, yup, you should click the Challenge Tracker after you save & select the Challenge that applies.

That answer's a bit wordy, but it's trying to convey that not every edit you do will qualify. For example, I added sources to quite a few profiles during the source-a-thon, but I did not click the Challenge Tracker to add them to my list because they were already sourced - I was just adding another source, not sourcing an unsourced profile.

Hope that makes sense! I'm supposed to be writing reports for a non-WikiTree deadline right now :D

Hi Jodi,

In reply to your question regarding Obediah Barnes, I can tell you only two things. He does not descend from Brinsley (Barnes-1145) nor Solomon, Sr. (Barnes-368). Further, I NEVER consider Find A Grave a reliable source for anything except possible birth and death date and only then if there is a visible marker. I see that you have asked to join the Barnes Genealogy Group on Facebook. You will be approved in minutes. I doubt that you will find immediate help but check back in a month. I am taking actions that hopeful will add other who can answer questions. There are 15 different lines of Barnes throughout the world. I am semi-knowledgable on two of them. We have two other people on FB who are semi-knowledgeable on two other lines but they do not sound like yours.

links in the e-mail copy you receive of comments posted to your profile won't always work because they either include the coding needed to make text "clickable" in a posted comment on your profile page or the link was internal to WikiTree - for example, the full URL for my profile page is - and it should work from the e-mail copy you received. But if i code the full URL - coded - clicking the link will get you to a page not found, or Google, because it has the opening bracket attached to it. If I use the internal to WikiTree coding - Noland-165 or Noland-165 (they look the same in the comment, but you'll see a difference in the e-mail copy)... well, neither will work from the e-mail.

Hope that helps!

Hi Jodi,

I saw your comment on the profile of Obadiah Holmes. He does have a descendant, through a daughter who married a Brown, to a woman who married a Barnes:

But you will note that she was born in Rhode Island in 1746, whereas your Barnes ancestor was born in Georgia in 1782.

Not likely that there is any connection there.

Obadiah is a name from the Bible, and was in popular use across the colonies in the 17th and 18th centuries.

I love being on Wikitree. It has allowed me to develop a better understanding of historical aspects of the development of our country.

If you've a question or concern, or have ideas about the profiles I have currently adopted, please do not be shy to communicate with me about them. I hope to see them through to the greater good of the single family tree with their true persons represented.

I just discovered yesterday that I may be a direct descendant of Sarah (Davis) Bowen, or rather appear to be specifically a direct descendant of a black woman who lived in Cumberland, New Jersey area.

I have been violently treated and aggressed on, since the separation of my husband in 2005, and yet, for more of twenty years. I've made statement(s) to law enforcement wondering why people, since I was a child, came at me aggressively.

I believe my former company York International Corporation knew this and through human resource used it for profit and gain.

This is my stand. No more!

I may have a predecessor that was black, and I feel my company's that I have been trying to work for, have been attempting to buy and sell me on the 'black' market, for more then the last ten years.

I believe I was racially profiled and have been electronically micro-chipped, and when it goes bad there is a lot of snickering about who gets there turn at the black swing! don't tell her she doesn't know. Then we can keep doing it!

Hi guest,

Thank you for self-certifying for the Pre-1700 badge! Participation in a Pre-1700 Project is strongly encouraged for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles. Collaboration is essential because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants.

It looks like Norway would be a good fit with the tag you entered. Adding the tag Norway will help you get updates about activity for that project.

Do you have any questions? Let me know. I'm happy to help! :-)

Hello ,

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.

How are you? I'm Shirley, a WikiTree Mentor. Hope you're enjoying our site.

How To Use WikiTree is a good starting point, and the Help Index is an important place to find out how to do most tasks.

If you have pre-1700's ancestors to add please read our Pre-1700 profiles info. Do you have Royal Ancestors? Rather than create duplicate profiles for them, please contact the EuroAristo Project to discuss connecting your family line to their profiles.

And I'm here to help too, just ask!

Thanks, Jodi. You are now a member of the WikiTree community. Welcome!

Options for getting started:

Key Concepts:

1. Sourcing makes the difference between genealogy and mythology.

2. In order to build one collaborative tree, each person must have only ONE profile.

Let me or another Mentor Team member know if you have questions.
