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
Currently leading the United States History project (though I'd love other co-leaders and coordinators) which covers about anything in the history of the both geographical region and nation not already covered by other fantastic projects on WikiTree
I love to see the community building each other up-and to be able to build others up, too!
Abby Glann's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Abby or other
carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Abby:

Hi Abby - Is there somewhere I should be posting connections I make, or should I be letting you know directly? I wasn't sure if that was part of the process with Connectors or not. Just let me know if there's something I should be doing. :)
Abby, further to my note below: I can find a lot of them by using the Google search from WT on Brad--will keep me busy for a while (:>). Wonder how long they will be there? Is there an easier, more stable list? thanks.
Hi Abby, Thanks for adding me as manager of Paul B. McCabe III, I added what I could for him and then adopted his father and his grandfather Paul Sr. and Jr. whom I knew.
I think these used to be profiles of Brad Williams whom I was unable to keep from leaving Wikitree. We both worked on people from Sussex Co. DE.
Anyway, the purpose of this note is to volunteer to adopt any of his former profiles. Perhaps all of them have already been made adoptable by the process of closing his account. Sorry I didn't think of this sooner. Is there any way to find his former profiles? Thanks.
The template, when suggested text is added takes me to the redirect page. I would like to click on the template and get to the free space page as well as the one name page free space page as well as the one name page. For example, from The NSSAR template 
Durbin Name page has resources listed. I tried to follow the one name study instructions for linking, but it only took me to the list of names. I wanted the resource page to be accessible from the profiles to make it easier for people working on them to find and cite sources. The project template provided doesn't work for that. Is there a way create one that would take you to the free space page as well as the one name page. Also, when I used the template it took me to a redirect page. Thanks for any help you can give. Tanya
