About Me

I love quilting, genealogy, books, and solo travel. I love animals and have been a vegetarian since 2000. I'm currently an academic librarian, and my subject areas at work are history and political science.

I co-founded South Texans for Reproductive Justice with my sister. I was a clinic escort in McAllen, Texas through the passage of laws that went all the way to the Supreme Court (Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt).

I participate in BioBuilders on WikiTree and have a tendency to fall down genealogy rabbit holes, so you might come across me if your relative was my grandma's sister's first husband's brother-in-law's great-great-grandpa.

Education

  • Bachelor of Arts in English and Philosophy with minors in Music and Media Studies from Texas State University-San Marcos
  • Master of Arts in Women's History from Sarah Lawrence College
  • Master of Library and Information Science from San Jose State University

Some Jobs I've Held

  • Kennel tech at ASPCA in Manhattan
  • Developmental English instructor
  • History adjunct instructor
  • Starbucks barista
  • Lifeguard at a waterpark
  • Clarinet tutor

Melissa--

This week we have your last stop on the guided tour. Hopefully, you're feeling like a WikiTree pro!

You've covered a lot of ground the past few weeks. Today, we want to give you just a few more tools that can take you even deeper into the WikiTree forest without getting lost: How to Dig a Little Deeper.

As always, your questions are welcome!

Hi Melissa,

You've probably been hard at work adding family members and getting connected to those that are already here. You should have at least a few profiles that you manage now. So, this week we're going to look at how to work with your Watchlist: How to Manage Your Watchlist.

As always, your questions are welcome!

PS: Since you merged your profile, I suggest you take the top upper Biography and Sources sections off the page and just have your Biography and sources heading with current information below that appearing. That way your profile won't show up on our errors report for having "two" Biography and Source headings!! Thanks, Dorothy

Hi Melissa

You've been here a week now, and we hope you enjoyed your first stop on your guided tour of WikiTree and were able to make good use of the things you learned.

Our next stop will give you some pointers on how to make your profiles stand out: How to Make the Most of a Profile.

As always, your questions are welcome! Check out our g2g forum at: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/

Hi Melissa

I'm a member of the Mentor project, and I just wanted to check in and see how things are going. Do you have any questions I can answer?

Ronel

Welcome Melissa!

You are now a confirmed member, and you can get started adding your family members. As we've said, WikiTree is quite different from other genealogy sites. So, we've put together a guided tour to help you learn how to use it. Your first stop is How to Start Climbing Our Tree.

Tomorrow, you'll hear from a Mentor who will check in to see how you're doing and answer any questions you might have.

Next week, you'll get another message with your next stop on the guided tour.

You can also meet some of our members by joining in the fun with our Question of the Week in the G2G forum: If you could pick a different time period to live in, what would it be?

Thanks, Cindy
