Annie Blanchard was born in El Paso Texas, where she lived for a whole month before moving on. Her dad was in the Air Force and the family moved a lot for the first years of her life. When he left the Air Force as a Captain when she was eight, he became a helicopter tech rep for Sikorsky - the family still traveled. As a child, Annie lived in many US states, plus Okinawa and Germany. She's traveled often as an adult to Istanbul and England, where one of her sons and daughter-in-laws reside.

Annie's led an interesting life. Ever since she was a small child, her passion was reading. She was fortunate enough to work for many years as a bookstore manager, and then as a book accessories sales rep and eventually vice-president for Antioch Publishing Company, allowing her to travel and call on major customers all over the US and in Canada. Her degree from Antioch was in management, but her retirement years have been spent creating and designing items of interest for booklovers.

Annie was born a Unitarian, but became a Quaker by choice. She has three wonderful sons, two beautiful daughter-in-laws, and four grandchildren. She's helping them get their DNA tests done (she already arranged for her 88 year old mother's tests!)

After retiring, she opened a small business, Friendly Spirit, which she ran for 15 years. She recently has retired from her semi-retirement, and has been spending her time learning about genealogy, when she's not out protesting on social justice concerns.

She's currently researching her mother's side exploring the Moberly/Street/Gladding roots in Belmont Ohio and trying to contribute to the considerable work her sister has done to the family tree their mother gave them, and in tracing their father's family heritage back to the Mayflower. She's always looking for more information about her father's mother's clan, the MacQuarries, trying to find when they came to Canada and from exactly what part of Scotland.

Stories, comments and rants about genealogy, ancestor stories, etc. can be found on her blog, Digging Genealogy '

Followed Tags
Annie is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
My grandmother's maiden name. From Nova Scotia.
Just got my acceptance from the General Society of Mayflower Descendants for John Alden. That line also leads directly to Governor Bradford, the Brewsters, Richard Warren and of course, John Alden's wife Priscilla Mullins. With a little more paperwork, we can also prove a relationship to Thomas Rogers. More work is required for the line to Myles Standish, George Soule, Francis Cooke and Edward Doty, but I may leave that to future generations. Time and money!
Our Moberlys are only sure back as far as 1811 in Belmont, Ohio. They came from either Virginia or Maryland (or both). John and Lucinda, children Rezin and William. More came later. Searching for them before, so many Mobberley's so little time
Quaker ancestor out of Pennsylvania, ending in Virginia now West Virginia.
Ties in with my interest in Mayflower.
I became a convinced Friend over 20 years ago - while researching I found Quakers in my ancestry!
MacQuarrie is my paternal grandmother's maiden name, from Nova Scotia.
This is the line that takes us to the Mayflower Passengers. Huldah Wadsworth - father was Joseph Wadsworth, son of Wait Wadsworth, son of Elisha. They take us to the Aldens, Mullins, Brewsters, Bradford and Warren .

Hello Annie, I have Wm Bradford and repeaters in my line as well. I come from Asay line. I’d like to see if we have more to share. I’m not new to genealogy just a bit confused at all the errors on the other sites. I’d like to communicate with you on your lines. Thank you!

Hi Annie, Just approved the merge for Edwin Hunt. It's all done and waiting for you. I removed myself as a Profile Manager so it will need a bio clean-up but it's not messy so should be a breeze. Thanks! Janis

Sorry, Annie. I had no idea that so many members of that Mayflower family have project-protected profiles!

Hi, Ellen, thanks for your words on how to edit on Holland-1128. Unfortunately, none of that could be done (or I would have done it!) because the children were part of a Projected Project. You can't edit those unless you're a member of that - I had to go to G2G and post for help so someone who was qualified could do it.

Annie, if the children connected to the Holland-2118 profile are not her children, you should go to each child's profile, open the "Edit" tab, and choose "edit mother" on the right side of the screen.

Insert the WikiTree ID for the correct mother in the space provided at the top of the page. Review the page to make sure that the "married to the father?" item at the bottom of the page is correct, then save.

Hi Annie, Regarding Mary Cullis there has been some discussion on G2G. The link is on the top right of the profile page.

Thank you for your contribution, something definitely needs to be done!

Holmes-189 and Holmes-190, the statement about father should be over 6 years old, was computer generated by wiki and refer to any one of the many children. Hope this helps.

I saw your note about 'other' people changing profiles. I am one of those people, but NEVER important information. I keep learning the wikitree style guide (such as using 'current last name' for last name used, usually the married name) and I DO add it to other people's profiles because it helps others and the goal is that we are all one family. Yes, if someone actually changed important info without a real source, that would be very bad. I have never seen that happen. I love your bios! Mine are very boring.
