I live in Adelaide, South Australia; monitor quality management in the haematology department of a large, multi-site medical pathology laboratory; am crazy about all things canine; and have been researching my family history for over three decades. I am very interested in the social context of my ancestors' lives and, surprisingly, thirty two years of reading doctors' handwriting has proved to be a useful prerequisite for reading Gothic Swedish handwriting.

Genealogy is a good fit with my love of puzzles and mysteries, sometimes a little too good! DNA, however, has helped to break down some of my brick walls. I have tested a number of close family members and have Y-DNA tested my brother (Ford line), a 1C1R (Lane line) and a 1C2R (Parker line). I manage kits at Ancestry, Family Tree DNA and My Heritage, am willing to help others where I can, and have some experience at solving adoption cases.

Although I opened my Wikitree account a few years ago, and created some records for family members at the time, I have only recently (December 2019) become more active. As I have no children, no younger family members who want to continue my work, and have been gifted with the research of other family members, I have chosen Wikitree as the vehicle to share my work freely, so that others may continue to add to my contribution now and after I have dropped off the twig.

Digital Afterlife

In the event of my passing, or that I have become unable through physical or mental illness, to continue my work here, I place the profiles I manage into the caring hands of the Wikitree Admin. If any member(s) of my family have the desire to continue what I have started, I ask that they be allowed to manage those profiles and have the guidance to continue in an appropriate manner. Any locked profiles that I manage I believe to contain only information that can be found on the internet, so they may be dealt with as privacy would allow.

Hi Leandra,

I noticed your note about ideas to efficiently create profiles. WikiTree member Greg Slade created an app that uses existing information on profiles to create a basic biography with links and places for inline citations. You can find it here: https://apps.wikitree.com/apps/shipley1223/Bio.html

The England Project (through their Orphan Trail) and the Profile Improvement Project (through their Watchlist Flow) both offer suggestions on how to generate the best profiles.

Hope this helps,

Thank you so much, Debi. That is awesome. I've actually been considering joining the England Project as I have performed extensive research on my UK ancestors, and would like to learn about more resources that I haven't used yet. The Profile Improvement Project caught my eye too.
