Effective immediately
I'll be back in 10...
(but I'm not promising minutes)
Sorry, but it might be a while until I can get back to you.

Presently unable to spend as much time as I would like on WikiTree. Will do my best to keep up with email and messages. Please add "urgent" or similar to anything time sensitive. Thanks!

Some people have never read the entire speech, given in regards to the Great Depression. A few lines: From Franklin Delano Roosevelt:

This great Nation will endure as it has endured, will revive and will prosper. So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.[1]

My background is medicine, but I am an artist at heart. Genealogy is just plain fun, and I find it fascinating. It's like a treasure hunt, mystery solving, and living history all at once, I don't know whether I would pursue it without WikiTree though. Rabidly anti-commercialism and anti-media/propaganda, I love the idea that this is our tree and we own it. I love the spirit of generosity and comradery here. After all, it is our tree, not my tree. That's the truth. Oh yes, and also important is the principle of accuracy and documentation. That's the scientist in me, evidence based and all that jazz. So ... Hello everyone. I am so happy to be part of this WikiTree. Thank you!

Some of the names I've found in my limbs and twigs:

Matthews
Frost
Youmans
Washington
Strother
Wells
Welsh
Mead
Carter
Dale
Genon
Reid
Finkbone
Gorsuch
Cain
Billups
Cooper
Greene
Lilly

I have no idea who John Garnett's father was so I removed him as the son of Thomas Garnett. Thanks for the heads up.

I have removed myself from the discussion of Edmund Scarborough-57 's wife's name by removing myself from his profile. There is a footnote on pg 16 of Kith and Kin regarding the question of her name.

Hi! The maiden name of Edmund Scarburgh's wife is known; it was Smith. The only evidence supporting "Butler" is Edmund Scarburgh the younger claiming a Robert Butler as headright. I have a copy of the will of Edmund Smith, father of Hannah Smith; he names "my daughter Anna Scarbrughe alias Smith" (also named, grandson Charles Scarbrughe, with a bequest of four marks.)

Hi Cynthia,

Wondering if you received an answer from a post 2 years ago asking why a profile was disconnected from the parents. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Scarborough-56 I believe the disconnect is a mistake. See http://espl-genealogy.org/MilesFiles/site/p201.htm#i20094

The Scarborough/Scarburgh line is becoming quite a mess due to the different name spelling. Any help is appreciated. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Scarburgh-41 Thanks, ~Pam
