My early origins are mid-Western.[1]I did undergraduate work in nursing, communication, and family studies. I did graduate work in communication with a minor in family counseling. Most of my work in nursing was in hospice and palliative care, which reinforced my interest in family systems, connections and history. I moved to Arizona in 1984 for my graduate work and fell in love with our southwestern desert. I have a doctorate in psychology with a minor in family counseling and a master's degree in nursing. I taught psychology, counseling, nursing and communication courses in Arizona, Montana and East Asia (Korea and Okinawa for the US Military with the University of Maryland). I have done guest lectures in Mexico, Central and South America, Ireland and England. I have traveled to England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France, Germany, Poland and Austria for work and genealogy side trips. Whenever I travel, I try to pursue more 'original' sources, particularly in Great Britain.

Connecting with genealogists, adding to family, and life-long learning are important to me:

  • I was, perhaps 6-years-old when my interest in family history began. I still have the little piece of note paper on which my maternal grandmother wrote her parents and grandparents names, birth and death years and my maternal grandfather's parents and grandparents names, birth and death years.
  • In the early 1970's, I started making queries about my dad's family using paper, pen, envelopes, stamps and landlines (remember those?) to contact record's offices, and so forth in MN, NY, and VT. In 1994, I was introduced to the computer, which made searches better (fast, less costly and time-consuming, almost instant gratification) and worse (incorrect information, numerous Baldwins, no documentation).
  • I joined MyHeritage and Ancestry circa 2010. My brother and mother provided samples for 23andme and Ancestry. As I gathered more 'evidence' (birth, marriage, death, census records, deeds), I built trees on Ancestry and FTDNA. Cousins as avid about genealogy as I, led to a genealogy road trip to MA and VT in 2016.
  • I turned to FTDNA circa 2016 to have full sequence mtDNA (from myself) and Y DNA (Y67 to Y111 to Big Y700 for my brother) done through on FTDNA, and joined the 1) EIJGB England, Scotland, Wales Group, 2) European Royalty and American Patriots Group, 3) R R1b All Subclades, and 4) Baldwin, Green, Barber and Munson surname groups. These genetic genealogists located throughout the UK and the U.S. are extremely helpful in clarifying which Baldwins are linked genetically when primary and secondary resources are sometimes nebulous.
  • Formal education in genealogy includes the online course offered through Boston University, semester long online classes in 1) mastering genealogical proofs and 2) mastering genealogical documentation, and a semester-long course in genetic genealogy offered through the Pima County Genealogical Society. I am also a long-time member of the NEHGS.


  • Paternal and maternal relationships are confirmed by a GEDmatch test match between Carol Baldwin and her brother. Their MRCAs are their parents Leverett Frederick Baldwin and Carolyn May George. Estimated number of generations to MRCA = 1.2, based on sharing 2761 cM across 43 segments.
  • Full sequence Mitochondiral (mt)DNA for Carol Baldwin confirms maternal haplogroup as H102, FTDNA kit #N142216.
