Biography

I've studied my family history since I was a teenager and my grandmother entertained me with stories of captains, 49ers, wagon trains, pioneer women and flu epidemics. I have spent many a Saturday in the offices of the National Archives and Records Administration when that was the only way to access records.

I have been a Reunion software user since the first release (unless I am mistaken!) and I am still in the lengthy process of scanning personally held information from paper files.

From 1998-2005 I was the clinical director of a nationwide program, Improving Chronic Illness Care and visited many archives and libraries whenever work coincided with family history. I have been fortunate to do research at the NARA in Washington DC and at the Library of Congress, as well as other depositories including historical societies, universities and public libraries. In 1999 I completed the Certificate in Genealogy and Family History program at the University of Washington. As part of the 3 semester-long program, I completed a comprehensive project on my great-great grandfather, Rev. Thomas Oliver Ellis, MD using family letters of the Civil War years in California.

From 2005-2012, I hiked from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail with my youngest son (read our Trail Journal here) and immigrated to Canada. In 2012, I founded a non-profit with a group of other like-minded colleagues, CCMI. Family history took a back seat during these years. The advent of genetic genealogy and the addition of grandchildren brought me full circle back to the avid genealogist I was nearly 20 years ago. Because of my background in health care, genetic genealogy has been a natural extension of my interest in family history and making connections to my past.

I have an extensive working database of over 7000 individuals and I am slowly putting my best documented work here on WikiTree. I am happy to be part of WikiTree.

In the summer of 2018 I started to prepare for certification through BCG.

Hi Steve, I'm just getting started. Today I obtained a copy of a booklet about the Hope (British Columbia, Canada) Pioneer Cemetery which will be very helpful as I work on documenting the markers. The booklet also has information about unmarked graves.

Hi Connie

It has been a couple of weeks since we contacted you about your participation in the Canada and as we haven't heard from you, we are following up to make sure you wish to remain a member.

We understand that interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to the branches they are currently building. If this is the case for you, please let us know.

If we do not hear back from you within the week, we will assume you have moved on to other things for the moment and remove you from the project. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.

Hi Connie, Welcome to Wikitree.

We are Distant Cousins, both Descended from John Throckmorton MP. I believe he is your 18th Great Grandfather and my 15th. Will going through the names that connect us, according to the Relationship Finder, I noticed you have an Ancestor with the Davies last name along with Davis. My 2nd Great-Grandmother, Emma Rose , born about 1840 in New York, married a man by the last name of Davies. They had at least one Child named Charles, born about 1858. Emma later married my 2nd Great Grandfather, George Washington Couch. I was wondering if you might have any information on Emma's 1st husband. Any possible connections would be greatly appreciated as I have not been able to find any info on her first marriage. Thank You in Advance.

You are one of the most awesome, We finished in 10th place with 657!!! That is great in its own but there is more. I have a very huge lot going on in my own personal live and family.. Due to such an amazing team, We were able to not only finish 1 image but we blew away 657. You are one of the best ever teams ever. Thank you so much for being on this team and making the tree more healthy, happy and wonderful. I truly hope to have you back with the team for the next thon. Then I will be blessed again to be part of this team.

Thank you from me and the tree!
