I'm a retired public librarian from San Francisco Public Library who was hired immediately after finishing an MLIS at UCBerkeley in 1986. (I had thought to be a law librarian and have always been grateful that fate and a recruiter intervened.) Public librarians have the best job in the world…people, books, research, and respect after retirement.
Along the way, with a very supportive and extensive family, I've acquired a B.A. and M.A. from San Francisco State University in Political Science and an LLB in law from Lincoln University. My research focus has been upon political theory as well as American history.
I have five children, three grandchildren, one great-grandchild with a second one in progress... not to mention a Irish/Bostonian spouse. More about them later...
Much of my family tree has been well documented, but some areas contain completely mysterious gaps. Looking forward to closing some of them.
Adventure is out there! 73 years and counting...
This is my permission (upon my demise): my adult children should have first priority to assume the upkeep of this tree; if they decline the responsibility the Wikitree staff should manage the profiles where I act as profile manager in any way they see fit as long as this is in line with the Honor Code and preserves the privacy of living people. 11/16/2015, updated 12/17/2017.

Thank you for adding the Magna Carta tag to your profile and following Magna Carta posts in G2G, We appreciate your interest in Magna Carta heritage and genealogy, You are probably aware that there is a Magna Carta Project in Wikitree ? The purpose of this project is to develop and maintain Magna Carta related profiles, identify and develop relationship trails from recognized Gateway Ancestors to their Magna Carta Surety Baron ancestor, and perform other important tasks, such as profile improvement, error correction and doing quality reviews of existing trails and profiles.
I am guessing that you may have found a potential direct relationship trail to a Magna Carta Baron, or perhaps you just enjoy the challenge of researching and proving Pre-1700 and Pre-1500 profiles ? This field of research can present its own challenges, but it is very rewarding to those who take up the challenge.
If you think you might enjoy the Magna Carta Project, you can join the project at one of two levels; Full Membership or Affiliate Membership. At either level you choose, we would welcome your participation and collaboration. For more information please see :
If you have a question or comment in regards to this message or would like additional information please contact David Douglas, Co-Leader, Project Coordinator (Membership)

The Taliferro surname explains the 1% Italian that came up on my DNA results! When I saw the Italian I was stumped, because I didn't think that was possible from what I already knew of my heritage. When I found the connection, of course, then it made sense.
So, hi cousin Dorothy!

Going to do some research for her, as there seem to be some errors with this FAG memorial, that don't make sense. A random act of genealogy, to get her properly recognized on WikiTree and FAG.
