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.
Abby's Tools My free-space page for photos to use as backgrounds. Feel free to use; add yourself to any of the photos to use on your own profiles.
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 Bug Tracker and Tech Tester, as well as working on various miscellaneous administrative tasks. She tries to fit in actual genealogy time where she can, as she also has a small farm and homeschools her four amazing children.

I am in receipt of your comment concerning unlinking actions on https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Barnes-13236 done by you which has resulted in many DNA connections which are in error. Several of us are concerned about the issue. Our role in Wikitree is adding good genealogical data. We are not familiar with fixing this problem. Since it was created by your actions, would you be so kind as to fix it.

" Could you explain and correct your action on April 30 on profile Barnes-13236. " ID 55570571. (restoring anonymized profile) ]" It apparently resulted in my and other DNA being linked incorrectly to the profile. I would like to see that removed immediately as would Don Barnes who left a comment on the profile. If the situation is cleared up soon, I will not alert other effect TRUE relatives. If you examine my and Bud Barnes trees you will clearly see we in NO WAY LINK TO THIS PROFILE.

Thanks for reaching out about the Arkansas Young line. Which Young was your aunt’s Grandfather? Would this have been a son of Eli Young Sr. and brother of James Mason Young’s? Or the next generation? I have not heard of Genesis and do not have a test there. I took the Ancestry DNA test and have matched with and been assigned to DNA Circles for James Berry Young (1760-1845), his son Eli Young Sr. (1782-1856) Eli’s wife, Rachel Sailors (1791), and their son James Mason Young (1818-1879). Mahulda “Hulda” Young is my 3rd great grandmother. Feel free to send me a private message or email to see what we can figure out and also about Genesis! Thanks, Laura
