I got started researching genealogy when I was 20, thanks to a college Geography project and my mom's encouragement. It has been a wonderful experience, allowing me to learn about my family's struggles and triumphs, make personal connections to historic events, and meet wonderful people. I discovered much of what the family "knew" wasn't quite true, but was able to replace those stories with facts. I've becoming very intrigued with Genetic Genealogy and have tested myself and family members at Family Tree DNA, 23andMe and AncestryDNA. I am a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and enjoy helping ladies with their applications.

Hello Valerie!

I am working with the DNA Project. I Noticed you have something a bit amiss in your GEDmatch number listed for your FTDNA test. Would you verify it please? Since you have tested with FTDNA, your GEDmatch number should begin with the letter T.

Your GEDmatch number for your 23andMe test also comes up invalid on GEDmatch.

Once you find the right number you can update your GEDmatch ID number by clicking on the My WikiTree Menu at the top right of your profile page, then click on DNA confirmation. Thanks! Emma :-)

My uncle, David Leaphart, did some serious research on the Leaphart family tree. I'll tap into his knowledge and records to try and backfill to Franklin and Julia. Thanks!

Dear Ms Craft:

I am writing articles about the Bouchillons, for which I need information. Would you be willing for me to ask questions of you? If so, please contact me off-line.

I would also like permission to publish the photograph you posted of Ethel Bouchillon. Would you be willing to grant it?

Thank you.
