Current Priorities and Projects on WikiTree
My general research focus is colonial Maryland families, with a focus, of course, on the ones I descend from. My ideal is to develop detailed, well-sourced profiles.
I'm also a sucker for any potential lines back to Charlemagne. I've now disproved more than 3 lines back to Charlemagne.
Magna Carta Project. I value the rigor of the Magna Carta project and appreciate the chance to document early English nobility.
Welsh Ancestry reaching back from Sampson Waring of Shrewsbury, Shropshire.
Bealls of Maryland, focusing at the moment on Alexander Beall, b. 1621 and Margaret Ramsey.
Warings of Shrewsbury, focusing at the moment on Richard Waryng, b. 1547
Widmerpoles of Windmerpool, Nottinghamshire, England.
As a lifelong genealogist, I've developed "databases" of a pre-1800 information on a number of Maryland families. These databases are in MS Word files. They arrange bits and groups of bits of information according to the actual or guessed birth date of an individual, so that contemporaries are grouped together. There are footnotes giving source wherever possible. These databases aren't perfect, of course, but they often contain more information than one can find elsewhere in one place. I'm glad to share these databases with anyone who agrees not to post them intact on the internet -- they contain some coding (such as G in front of a date to indicate it's an educated guess) that would not make sense out of context! But I'd be delighted if anything I've done contributes to enhancing the profiles you work on for WikiTree. So just send me a note! Here are the family names for which I have databases. The focus is on Maryland families before 1800.
My father's family came from upper Montgomery County, Maryland, and many trace back to colonial Maryland. My mother's family came from upper New York State and trace back to New England. My sister is a member of the DAR and other lineage societies. I have joined First Families of Maryland.
Dennis Barton is my fourth cousin, with Peter Beyer, born 1760 in the Duchy of Wurttemburg, Holy Roman Empire, as our common ancestor. Peter Beyer migrated to Browningsville, Maryland, where the farm he started is still owned by his Walker descendants.

Special interest in Proprietary Maryland -- 1634-1689.
Jack Day's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Jack or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Jack:

Jack - the magna carta trail Chetwood-1 to Malet-18 is badged, but the profiles I'm seeing on the trail all need work. Wodhull-49 has a message from you on it that makes it seem you reviewed/approved the trail. Did you?
I’m Susie the new leader of the England Project. We are contacting all existing members of the project to find out how you are currently involved, and how you would like to be involved moving forward. Please have a look at the England Project page for more information, and then contact either myself or Gillian to let us know what you’d like to do, or if you have any questions. We can then list your interests, help you join the team in the Google group forum for England, and give you any help you might need to get going. If we don’t hear back from you we’ll assume you no longer want to be a part of the England Project at this time.
Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you,
This early Maryland couple, Roberty Hardisty and his wife Ann "Nancy" Hopkins, left on the Old Wagon road through Pennsylvania into Ohio.
I have been working to gather information on them and have placed every scrap into their wikitree profiles.
I see that you have quite a lot of experience with Maryland. I would appreciate if you could take a look at these profiles and let me know if you have any ideas for researching this couple. I am actually thinking about hiring a professional genealogist.
As an addendum to the comment below, we're also worried about cemeteries. In particular, how do we integrate "normal" French cemeteries - names in French - and War cemeteries? The naming of War cemeteries categories in France doesn't seem right.
We are starting a French Roots project with Emma McBeath and Greg Lavoie and trying to look into Categorization - namely, sub-categories of France and France (en). I think we're about OK with current regional categories, but that's about it. How do we deal with the two languages? Do you have any advice/examples for structuring history categories? Is it OK to use existing military / decorations categories (Légion d'Honneur) and thus crowd them with people who have the distinction, but nothing else in common with the American soldiers who were in the categories first? We did contact the lady who is in charge of France categories, but no return so far. We ARE willing to do the categorization ourselves, but want to do it right.
Thank you !
