I have always had an interest in my heritage, and wish that I would have acted on it long ago, before my parents (Burnell and Frieda (Morris) Davis, aunts, uncles, etc. had passed. It would really be nice to collaborate with them, sharing some of the information I have found, and asking them for guidance in other areas. I was raised in Southern Illinois, worked in St Louis, MO for 15 years, and then at SIUe for another 26 years, prior to retiring in 2011. I'm married to Gerald Ahrens, have two daughters, Monica and Krista, and five grandchildren.

I have gotten a lot of information on my dad's side, including Isaac Harris through a website: I have also found many graves through, and have found some information at There is a lot more to find, I'm sure.

Hi Beverly, thanks for your note.

The second link takes you to a list of all the Saturday Sourcing Sprints posts. Right now we are doing one post every week. The next post will be created on Friday at noon.

If you would like me to include your sourced profiles from this past Saturday, click the top post and read the rules. If it still sounds like fun, add an answer to that post and I'll get you set up.

Keep an eye out for next week's post on Friday and chime in with an answer. It can be anything really, such as which records or family you plan to work on, or what your goal is (mine's usually at least one sourced profile). Some of our Sprinters have great ideas on where to look for unsourced profiles or sources for certain locations.

I'm glad you are considering joining us.

Hi Beverly,

I noticed that you clicked the Saturday Sourcing Sprint check box on the Challenge Tracker this weekend. I keep a yearly total for those who register for the Sprints. You can find the Year to Date totals on the Sprint Tracking Sheet.

If you would like to be included in the tracking sheet, add an answer (not a comment) to the current Saturday Sourcing Sprint G2G thread, Membership in a team is not required to participate.

No pressure, every profile with a source makes our WikiTree better. If you don't register, we will include your total in the Unregistered entry at the bottom.

Your work is appreciated. Thanks for sourcing!
