Karen was born in December 1964  at 7.45 pm, at home she was 2 weeks overdue, which set the tone for her life as she is nearly always late for everything.
Karen has not done any DNA testing, nor does she have any plans to do so, as a personal opinion only, she does not trust them to be completely accurate and thinks they are a waste of time and money and with certain sites selling the information and passing them on without permission, although she does appreciate that they are necessary for some people.
Her ancestry is English, Irish and Scottish (when those elusive Finnertys can be found supposed to be from by Loch Lomand)
Karen has been told she suffers from Dyspraxia, which why she is so clumsy and uncoordinated, and why asking obvious questions does not occur to her - she can also be a bit OTT. She has a good sense of humour, some would say weird, which not everyone appreciates.
Karen describes herself an "unique", there is no-one like her, which she quite likes,
Karen will die at some point in time, but she plans on living forever, just to annoy everyone :-)
Karens no1 rule in life is never to take offence at anything - now if that isn't a challenge, I don't know what is :-) - it wastes too much time and energy
I also suffer with Metathesiophobia
We have all made mistakes when we started out genealoging, some of us still do (guilty). Mistakes happen, they can be fixed, and whatever mistake you make you are not the fisrt or the last to make it. I have probably made every mistake that can be made. "We want examples" I hear you ask, well, I made someone a father when he was 10, I married someone when she was 7, and I added someone as the wife and daughter of her dad
Karen is obsessed with genealogy, she also likes crosswords, reading, knitting, she also likes music, opera, rock,classical, punk, blues and soul. Her favourite music is from the 60s-80s. Her favourite singer was Klaus Nomi
