Writing my own biography does not come natural to someone like me (I like my privacy), but I thought I would go against my nature and share some things with the community I wouldn't normally do.

When I grew up this whole Internet thing was kind of new, in the 90's basically every Swedish family had their own PC. I was in 6th grade when we started having computer class and boy has things advanced since! I was hooked pretty much instantly especially after visiting my mom's cousin Anna-Karina, who had her own computer and a game called King's Quest 7: The Princeless Bride. There was nothing I wanted more than my very own computer. After mentioning to my mother about 586 times how it would be really good to have our own computer at home, for schoolwork of course she finally caved and we went to the electronic store to buy a PC which we set up on the hallway side table. Amazing!

Fast forward 13 years and I find myself in the library looking up my father's grandparents in a census database and get completely obsessed with finding out more. I have always been one of those people who wants to understand how things works and where we come from. No wonder genealogy became something of an obsession! After inheriting some of the more basic information from my aunt who had started some research earlier, I started working on the Härstedt side as I was interested to find out where the name came from; the only "craftsman-name" in the family. My father read the local newspaper "Ystads Allehanda" every day sent me a copy of an article about a Härstedt reunion with a whole bunch of Härstedt people we never heard of. Apart from one, the social democrat politician Kent Härstedt; one of the people arranging the reunion substantial enough to end up in the newspaper. Curious to see if we were related I sent Kent an email describing the Härstedts I had in my tree, asking if he recognized any of them. I didn't expect a response back, thinking he was a busy politician. To my surprise I did find an answer in my inbox a few weeks later which resulted in a meeting at my dads kitchen table in Ystad. I showed him my research printed out neatly from a genealogy program I was using at the time. Kent had done genealogy the good old fashioned way for the previous 40 years and had all his research on paper. He asked if I could organize his research into digital form and I was more than happy to. He handed over the whole pile of papers while my dad stated "Ja där har du ditt livs arbete!" ("Yep, that's your life's challenge right there!") and turns out he was right about that. Once I started realizing the vastness of a family tree with all these cousins in combination with an insatiable need to organize all the branches and find out where all these cousins lived, worked and loved, there was simply no way back.

I chose to put the research on a website where others could access the research. MyHeritage was the first site I went to, but the tree quickly grew to be too big for the free version. After paying for a larger subscription for a while I decided that I was going to need something that was easier on the wallet, especially since the cousins once interested in the cause started to show less and less interest in participating. So I moved the tree to Ancestry. Without limitations on the size of your tree it grew to be over 7000 people strong. I tried to make a spreadsheet of which families was researched and which ones remained to try and find some sort of organizing and focusing my research. That way I could efficiently go branch by branch and complete at least some families. A part from the extra administration of up-keeping the spreadsheets, this worked fine for a while.

After starting my own family time got scarce and I started to wonder what would happen with all the research I painstakingly collected over the last years. Sure cousins with a subscription on Ancestry would once in a while come across it and hopefully find some joy in it. But I wanted to put my research somewhere anyone could find it free of charge and hopefully help add to the research. That's the story of how I ended up here, me and my extra family member, the Tree.

Hi Antonia,

I see that you've marked the relationship of many of your ancestors to their parents 'confirmed with DNA'. There's a statement required to be entered in each child's biography explaining how you used DNA to confirm the parental relationship(s). It's all explained here: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/DNA_Confirmation Please add a statement for each child whose parents you have marked 'confirmed with DNA'. Thanks! Please let me know if I can help. Kay Wilson

Hoi Antonia,

You mean if all Unsourced Dutch profiles get the:

  • Unsourced|Netherlands (between {{}} and
  • Dutch Roots|Needs=Birth between {{}}

templates I assume ? Yes all Unsourced Dutch Profiles you come across if they are possibly or probably born in or lived in the Netherlands, or if their parents were, and if there's not a different Project working on them already, or more appropriate, you can add those templates to.

Thanks for asking and great you're working on adding them and preparing them for the Source-a-Thon and the Project !

Greets and have a wonderful day,

Bea :)

Hi and you're welcome Antonia,

A geni link might count for some or sometimes as a source, but for these early profiles it depends on if they also include info from and cite primary or good and reliable secondary or other sources, if we consider them 'source' or not.

In this case we don't, so we will add the needs template combined with the Unsourced Netherlands template, and not to make the profile look bad, but it will increase the chance someone finds them and will come along and add perhaps more info and some primary or reliable secondary sources to them.

Normally I would not add a profile like that without better sources, but well I understand your frustration and I'm already looking for some sources for them, so I created him for you now.

Greets from the Netherlands and thanks for understanding and being such a sport !

Antonia, where did you get the 1 Jan birthdate for Samuel Peterson? Looks like a copy/paste from Wikidata. I'm not convinced of its reliability for New Sweden genealogy, are there sources to this--or the marriage date? I love solid sources.

Thanks for the bio updates for Nicoli Petersen & his wife Anna Svensen ... were these part of the recent "spring cleanup" effort? Or do you have a connection to this couple? They are a big brick wall in my husband's ancestry. In either case, we appreciate the help.
