Cousins Found on Wikitree



My Name is Amy McAndrews. My father was John Kendrick Bumgardner, my mother was Etta Kathryn Harris. I have three siblings, Jim Bumgardner, Larry Bumgardner, and Kathryn Ellsworth.

I was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana at Baton Rouge General Hospital. Schools I attended: East Brookstown Elementary School, Prescott Junior High School, Livonia High School, and Cotton Valley High School. There was also a school in Lafayette, Louisiana, but I don't remember the name.

I graduated from the LPN program at Baton Rouge Vocational-Technical School in 1977 and I have worked as a nurse ever since (37 years and counting).

In my nursing career I worked for 1 year in the Well Baby Nursery, 5 years in Neonatal Intensive Care, 16 years in Home Health, and 13 years in Long Term Care. I have been working with Alzheimer's patients for the last 3 years.

I have three wonderful sons, and five awesome grandchildren. We are a Louisiana family, although I am now living in New Mexico, my heart is in Louisiana.


As a young child I was fascinated by the old family stories. I would sit and grill my mother about my Grandparents, their children, and so forth, writing everyone down with their birthdays, children, etc. I would read my Grandmother's family Bible with wonder. Who were they, where did they come from? On family trips, usually to a funeral, my father would be telling all the old stories about the family. Why didn't I write it down? My Aunt Bill and Uncle Tom would take their family vacations every year to a different area where our ancestors had lived and go through dusty old files. How much could they have done with a site like this? All the old story tellers are gone now. I feel it is up to me to pass this rich history on to my children and grandchildren. Personally, I gain strength from knowing my ancestors and the contributions they made to their country and their communities.

I love this project, and yes, I am a Wikitree addict. Through my research I have found connections that I never knew existed, and I can't wait to see what I can discover in the future.

Hi Amy!

The category: Autosomal DNA is a top level category not meant for personal profiles. Can you take it off of your profile? If you need a different DNA category for your profile, let me know and I will see what we can come up with.

Thanks so much! Emma--Project Coordinator DNA Project

Hi cousin, I just ran the relationship finder tool and we are 13th cousins once removed with George Throckmorton as the MRCA. I also compared our gedmatch kits and we match on chromosome 18 from 25,006,929 to 33,967,801 with 7.3 cMs and 2,035 SNPs (gedmatch says we should be 7.5 generations away). I have just started on WikiTree so my tree is small but I look forward to discovering a closer connection as it grows. Kathleen (Heath-3392)

Thank you Amy, I love to do history in geneology. But I have for years wished to find my biological grandfathers and grandmothers history. Since my grandfather was adopted. This has been a challenge to say the least.
