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 gifted some WikiTree kindness during the 2018 Secret Santa Swap!

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.
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.

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:
We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.
Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.
Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.
I sent my team free space page for Team Tennessee Volunteers to Eowyn but she has not added the team to the team list. I am Linda Barnett the leader of the team and of Barnett-3517. So if you can contact her to look at the free space page and add my team name to the team list I would be happy.
Hello Abby, I would like to join the German Roots Project.
I'm from Germany and my maternal grandmothers branch of the Harbeck family goes back to about 1690. Some of them came to the US in late 19th century and there are also some in Australia and Denmark.
Thank you and kind regards,
Hi Abby and other members. Not sure how I( join this group. My ancestors came to America in 1600's from Northern Ireland. Mildenhall is the name of brothers that first came. They settled in Pennsylvania.
