I live in the United States.
I like breaking through brick walls, especially when I rescue a woman from obscurity.
Wikitree works best for extroverts. I am an introvert.
I stick around Wikitree in spite of being reminded, every few months, that Wikitree isn't for everyone--in other words, they're saying, Wikitree is probably not for you. I am certain that Wikitree is not for me, and yet I will hang around until the day I am evicted. I like the idea of having just one profile for a person. I like sources.
Through a quirk of fate, we discovered our cousins in Mexico, descendants of a Wurts relative with wanderlust. Thus I am what a frenemy called a "gringa mexicana"--a person with a profound love for Mexico, Spanish, and the Mexican people while still being, according to Ancestry, a WASP.
If you met me, you would not like me. Fortunately, since I spend 95% of my time in one small room, you are not likely to meet me.

My DNA tests

A Family Tree DNA test shows my mtDNA is J1c2c2. My most distant known maternal ancestor is Nancy Tanner, born 1797 in Delaware. Knowing my maternal haplogroup has done nothing for me, although it's mildly interesting that it's almost like Richard III's, except it isn't. His is J1c2c3.
Other than that, the main information I've gleaned from DNA tests is that there are no unexpected parental events in my heritage.
I have tested at 23andMe, Ancestry, FamilyTreeDNA (for mtDNA test; 23andMe autosomal also uploaded there), and my DNA is on GEDMatch. I also use DNA Painter. The purpose of all those tests was to find my great-grandmother, and with a heck of a lot of work, I found her.
My mother, still living, has been DNA tested, and this test confirms that she is my mother. The way Ancestry puts it: "You and [name redacted because she's living] share 3,456 centimorgans across 56 DNA segments....people sharing 3,456 cM have the following relationship: 100% Parent/Child."
