Weekends are family time at our house, so if you try to contact me from Friday evening until lunch-time-ish Monday (US Central Daylight Savings time), I most likely won't get back to you until Monday afternoon, unless it sounds like an emergency. Thanks for understanding!

I have actually been a member since early August 2011. A merge with a profile a cousin created for me changed out the dates. See the source section for date confirmation.



aUDNA triangulation with numerous cousins have shown that Abby's connection to Jerry and Brenda are confirmed. Brenda's DNA test showed a maternal relationship, which further confirmed the connection.

Abby grew up on a small acreage in the Midwest. After high school she attended Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa, majoring in Religion and English (poetry focus). It was here that she took a genealogy class and an obsession was born. She also met her husband during that time, and their union only furthered her interest, as his grandparents were all very practiced genealogists. Abby took on the role of family historian for both her own families, and her husband's, and has been trying to maintain and continue research since then. She later attended Grand View College in Des Moines, Iowa, to pursue a degree in Social Work.

Abby is a WikiTree Team member and spends much of her time on WikiTree in her role of Leader Liaison and Project Manager, as well as working on various miscellaneous administrative tasks. She tries to fit in actual genealogy time where she can, as she also runs a small farm and homeschools her four children.


  • A lot of DNA work on her own family as well as for a few friends.
  • Glann-origin of the name; hope to start a Y-DNA study once I get my hubby to take a test. We recently found some Glanns in Australia that I'd like to see about connecting
  • Stevens in Scotland in the early 1800s
  • Browns of Nova Scotia, Canada and Yorkshire and Lambeth, England; I guess it's time to start a Yorkshire Browns ONS to pursue this wall, as well as getting a YDNA test for a brother or cousin soon.
  • Recently broke down a family brick wall and am learning about research in old Bohemian lines-Kleinhampl, Zeithaml, Westerovsky. Slowly flipping through parish records to find my third great grandfather.
  • Origins of my grandmother's family from Poland/Prussia/Austria, the Brocks/Brooks and the Popkes; recent family photo broke through one wall here and stepped us back a generation of Popkes.
  • Helping out with merging, connecting, sourcing, and clean up throughout Wikitree
  • Adding the family of some of my closest friends and in-laws and helping them research
  • Swedish research on my grandfather-in-law's family
Abby was featured in a Meet Our Members Post on the WikiTree Blog!
