I'm a retiree who joined WikiTree and began doing genealogy research in early 2012. I'm the Profile Manager (or a co-manager) for profiles in the Barton-Kefauver-Masters-Flook portion of the worldwide family tree. Other surnames that are represented in this portion of the tree include Boyer/Beyer, Buhrman/Poorman, Cline, Coblentz, Ferguson, Fogle, Gladhill, House, Jacobs, McClain, Meister, Mumma, and Renn. In the time I have been here, my ancestral lines have intersected in multiple places with those of other researchers, and I have discovered some new cousins. So some of these profiles are shared with other site members and with other families.

The Barton surname is of English origin, [1] [2] but there are several branches in my family ancestry with German roots as well. My autosomal DNA test results say that my ethnicity is 99% European, consisting of 67% West and Central Europe, 27% British Isles, and 5% Southeast Europe, with a trace of Asia Minor. In the United States, the geographic area with the greatest concentration of ancestors encompasses the counties of Franklin and Adams in Pennsylvania and the counties of Washington and Frederick in Maryland. Many of my more recent ancestors and collateral relatives lived most or all of their lives in those counties.

[For any relatives who may have looked at these DNA test results earlier, note that the Family Tree DNA analysis tool was updated, and the ethnic and geographic breakdown was modified, in early 2017.]

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have comments or questions, or if you have photos or additional information that would fit here. And if you find any errors, or encounter any broken links, please be sure to bring those to my attention. Just use the [send private message] link on the orange stripe next to my name on any profile I manage.

Dennis, I think you just emailed me. I know my profile doesn't show any children that is what I was trying to enter & it kept making a profile pg. for her dtr. it did not add to her page. I didn't mean to do 2 unlisted profiles". Can you tell me what privacy settings I should use? I think I would like to delete everything to do with Fedigan all of them and maybe start again. Can I do that? It is so confusing. Thank You Elizabeth
