  • In 1976, 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, Ancestry and, more recently, FTDNA. 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. Cousins as avid about genealogy as I, led to a genealogy road trip to MA and VT in 2016.
  • Meanwhile, I turned to FTDNA to have full sequence mtDNA (from me) and Y DNA (Y67 to Y111 to Big Y500 from my brother) done, set up a tree 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.
  • My early origins are mid-Western. 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. I am 'semi' retired (40 hours a week instead of 70) and am trying add to WikiTree. Connecting with genealogists, adding to family, and life-long learning are important to me.

Carol - so sorry for the delayed response to your kind offer to correct the Coat of Arms displayed on FitzAlan-29. Yes, please! If you would correct the image showing, that would be great!

Thanks so much, Liz
