My early origins are mid-Western.[1]I did undergraduate work in nursing, communication, and family studies. I did my Master's in communication with a minor in family counseling at Marquette University. Most of my work in nursing is in hospice and palliative care, which reinforced my interest in family systems, connections and history. I moved to Arizona in 1984 for my doctoral work and fell in love with our southwestern desert. I have a doctorate in psychology with minors in family counseling and speech & hearing sciences from the University of Arizona, and bachelor's & master's degrees in community health nursing from the University of Phoenix. I taught psychology, counseling, nursing, business 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. I have made corrections to errors noted in the NEHGS Register that have been recorded/corrected electronically on American Ancestors. A semester-long course in genetic genealogy offered through the Pima County Genealogical Society (PCGS), and DNA seminar with Blaine Bettinger, PhD, JD have helped to understand the uses of DNA in genealogical research. I am a long-time member of the NEHGS and PCGS.


  • 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.

Sourcerers' Challenge Wise Owl Red Hot Effort Milestone for 100 sourced profiles
Carol Baldwin PhD RN reached the Red Hot Effort milestone by sourcing 100 profiles in the June 2024 Sourcerers Project Sourcerers' Challenge.
Hello Cousin Carol! You came through on my Wiki feed this morning as I am following the Baldwins. You are a 9th cousin to my husband Bob and a 7th cousin 2x removed to me. I completed a three year research on my husbands 2nd Great Grandfather John Baldwin which resulted in a FIRST FAMILY OF FULTON COUNTY, OHIO induction for my sister-in-law Nancy Peters Hagerman. I am currently trying to prove to other family members that John's father is not Samuel. Maybe by joining the Baldwin name study that would give me some hints. I am fairly new to Wiki Tree, so I need some advice.
