Two paternal lines: Evans and Crowe to Counties Kerry and Clare in Ireland. Two maternal lines: Woodbury and Head to the 1620's and the original settlers of Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

I was born in Massachusetts, and lived there for 30 years. I then lived in the Denver, Colorado area for 6 years, in New Orleans for 1 year, in New Hampshire for 10 years, and retired to Maine.

My introduction to genealogy happened in 2010. A cousin I never knew existed sent a document to another cousin-in-law, and the document eventually arrived in my email. I didn't realize it, but I was looking at an Ahnentafel printout. I'm glad I worked my way through the many pages, because my mother was listed at the end of the report. My sister and I decided we had to figure out who all these people were. Both our parents had died by this time, so we were starting with a blank page. We learned that the markers in Beverly, Massachusetts, and the street names in Rockport, Massachusetts were for our ancestors. Genealogy has become my passion.

Since I started with genealogy just as records were becoming more widely available online, that's how I learned to do research. I am not a paper person, so I never created notebooks for family lines. WikiTree is the perfect solution for me.

I am a Daughter of the American Revolution, working on my 16th Patriot. Here are my proven Patriots, in order of verification:

Dear Kathy,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing a check-in with project members. Please review the following and respond to let us know that you are content with your current team or if you would like to be more involved.

The Project operates in a team structure. There are currently three participant PIP Teams -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. There is also the Voyage Team which guides new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team.

There are currently three different Biography Teams - The Biography Team, the Abandoned Team, and the Popular Team.

You're currently identified as a member of the Biography Team. The Biography Team works on profiles from their watchlist and other profiles that interest them.

Are you happy with the Team you are on? If you are interested in working with a different Team, please let us know.

If you have not already done so, we invite you to join the email GoogleGroup. We use the WikiTree Discord server #profile-improvement channel for our project. Neither is required; we also use the Profile_Improvement tag in G2G for Project announcements.

We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project meet its goals. We would like to hear about the successes you’ve had and would also appreciate any feedback you have to help improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or via private message to one of us.

Hi Kathy,

It is once again time for our annual Ireland Project check-in. Please respond within the next three weeks to let us know:

  1. If you would like to continue as an Ireland Project member. If your answer is yes, please tell us if you are happy with your current team, or if you would prefer to join a different one. If you are currently participating in more than one team we would appreciate you ranking them in their order of importance to you, from highest priority to lowest. This information will be helpful as we consider possible future changes to our team structure.
  2. In the past, the project has had a very minimal membership requirement (one contribution per year) for badged members to meet. Do you believe this is adequate, or should this requirement be increased? What do you believe would be a reasonable commitment to expect from all project members?
  3. How active have you been in the Ireland Project over the past year? Please choose one of the following options: a) I normally spend 1-5 hours per month helping achieve my team’s goals. b) I normally spend 6-10 hours per month helping achieve my team’s goals. c) I spend over 10 hours per month helping achieve my team’s goals. d) I am not able to contribute every month but have spent approximately ________ hours during the past year improving Irish profiles.
  4. Please provide feedback on any things you’d like to see the project do more of in the future.

You can respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. If we don’t hear from you within the next three weeks we’ll assume your interests have changed or you no longer are able to participate in the Ireland Project at this time, and your badge will be removed. If your circumstances change later you will be welcome to reapply for membership.

Many thanks for all that so many of you have contributed to the project in the past year, and very special thanks to those who answered the project’s call and gave generously of their time to be part of Team Seanchaithe during the most recent connect-a-thon. We are looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi Cheri,

Ooh, it's been a steep learning curve for me. But I finally got the hang of it. As you can tell, I'm working on Massachusetts cemeteries and right now it's Barnstable County.

Thank you for adding the parents of Almira Jane (York) Daniels. Last week I visited the Swan Point Cemetery and took grave site photos of the Marius Daniels and Almira memorials, as well as the Eva (Daniels) Humphrey memorial. I will post my photos soon (maybe next week) on Find A Grave. Marius was brother to my 2nd great-grandfather Moses Aldrich Daniels. Thanks to Kate Johnson, I have located the Daniels Homestead. It was moved from Blackstone to Sherborn in 1983 by Patricia and Richard Bates and is now located at 148 Farm Road. I have a photo of the homestead, but Kate had both articles and videos that she shared with me.

Kathy, I found you after realizing you built the tables showing the family members on Charles Marble Adams Sr. (1817-1892). Also like the bold of purpose in the sources you did. Where did you get the notes on how to do the table style?
posted by Curt Danforth III
Hi Curt, I'm glad you like the tables. There are two ways to create tables. The method I used on Charles was from this page https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Mindy%27s_Working_Space_4

However, there is a new browser extension called WikiTree Sourcer [1] https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:WikiTree_Sourcer With this extension, when you are on a census record, you just go to the menu and it creates a table for you. Let me know if you need more help, I'll be glad to go into detail.

Congratulations Kathy! According to the relationship finder, it says you and I are 16th cousins three times removed (Uncertain). My goal is to find all the orphaned profiles of people whom I know are definitely my family and clean up their profiles and get them into "CERTAIN" status. Then, hopefully begin to connect to other family members managed by others. I am glad your name showed up in my feed! Happy WikiTreeing! :)

Hi Greg! According to the relationship finder Kathy and I are 16th cousins three times removed (Uncertain). And, you and I are 24th cousins three times removed (Uncertain). I joined WikiTree not that long ago and I'm just now understanding how to adopt profiles that I know for sure are my relatives. My goal is to clean up their profiles to get them into "CERTAIN" status, so I can get a 100% sure family tree connection. This project is getting less overwhelming as time goes by, but in the beginning I was lost! Ugh. :) I'm glad Kathy's name showed up on my feed, I wouldn't have found either of you.

Hi Kathy, nice job on James Lincoln, b 1715. I am correcting to add son James, who is mentioned in the will, although not among the first three sons who got the real estate. I am stuck on his wife Desire Gray or Gary. If you have any thoughts, please do your magic. I am going to attempt to merge two Desires.

It's great to meet another Lane descendant here! My line comes from Josiah and Abigail's son Isaac, who actually isn't on here yet. I'm in grad school and I don't really have the time to manage this account, I just couldn't bear to see it without a manager. Let me know if you would like to take over management or co-manage it.

Thanks so much for reaching out, Lauren-Kate! The Lane's are an interesting clan, that's for sure. One of my Lane lines comes from Josiah's sister Ruth, who married Paul Morgan. From John Lane [Lane-868] and Dorcas, I have three lines of descent: Hepzibah, Joseph and Job.

I would be glad to be co-manager of Josiah.

I'm still working on my GEDCompare report, only about 1/4 through it. Once I've worked through that report I will be adding many more Lanes to the WikiTree! ~Kathy

Hi Kathy,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are usually shared by many descendants, collaborating with members of the projects which coordinate them is essential.

Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or topic. Review the project pages to learn about resources and guidelines as well as how to collaborate with the project members.

Can't find what you're looking for? Let me know, and I can make some suggestions! :-)

Remember to cite reliable sources in pre-1700 profiles you manage, or edit. (See:https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Pre-1700_Profiles#Cite_reliable_sources).

Hi, K!

Congratulations on becoming a Family Member of WikiTree! I'm a volunteer greeter, here to answer any questions you may have about WikiTree.

Our New Member How-To pages can help you get started adding profiles or just learning your way around.

Welcome to the community! I hope your WikiTree journey will be as fruitful and enjoyable as mine has been.

Hi, K!

Thank you for adding your DNA Test information to your profile on WikiTree. Your information will be propagated to the profiles of your parents and your ancestors within about 24 hours of being added. It will also propagate to the profiles of the descendants of your ancestors, so they may see your information under the heading "DNA Connections" just as you can see theirs.

Getting started with DNA outlines how to proceed to use your DNA test information on WikiTree and DNA is a link to a collection of links about WikiTree's many features involving DNA.

The DNA Connections list on your profile will provide a visual way for you to find potential relatives on WikiTree who have also added their DNA test information. Using DNA tools at sites like GEDMatch.com, if you find a relative that matches your DNA sufficiently and you have genealogical sources for the intermediate relationships, you can mark the specific parental relationships back to the most recent ancestor that you both share as "confirmed with DNA." For details, guidance, and examples of how to properly document DNA confirmations, see DNA confirmation.

To be able to add profiles, you will need to upgrade (there is no cost). You can do this from your Upgrade page. Just answer the five questions, e.g. who you want to communicate with, if others can see your family tree, what surnames, locations, or topics interest you, etc, and click on the green box that says "Upgrade”.

Upgrading just means you will become a Family Member with the ability to work on your immediate ancestors to help us achieve our goal of joining all individual family trees into one global family tree.

I hope this helps! If you have any problems, let me know.

Take care!
