I was born in San Antonio, Texas. Due to my father's job, my family moved on average every 3-4 years while I was growing up. When I was 16, we settled back in Texas. I have a bachelor's degree in Business Administration (Accounting) from Texas A&M University at Kingsville. Immediately after graduation, I went to Australia, got married, and never went home. We live in the Northern Territory and have two children.

I have always been interested in my family history, but didn't get really serious until about August 2015. Since then, I've discovered a whole lot and met a whole lot of wonderful distant cousins! Please don't hesitate to contact me if you recognise any of the people in the profiles I've created! I would love to chat with distant cousins and compare notes.

I am a member of the Bahá'í Faith and one of the founding members of the Bahá'í Faith project, which aims to create and improve the profiles of Bahá'ís on WikiTree. Of particular interest to me are the early Bahá'ís of Australia and the Northern Territory.

I am also the curator of the Freeth Name Study.

Bear in mind that what you see here on WikiTree may only be the tip of the iceberg. I've worked hard combing vital records, census lists, newspaper articles, as well as private family collections. I might have more data that you'd be interested to see. So again, please contact me!

Dear Vicky,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing its first annual check-in with our project members. Please review the following and let us know if you are content where we have placed you or would like to be more involved.

We are in the process of transitioning to a team structure. There will be three participant PIP Teams to start -- 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.

You're currently identified as a member of the Biography Team Level 1, working on profiles from your own watchlist, from projects in which you are involved, and whatever else you find. Biography Teams Levels 2 and 3 will work on designated profiles for notables (Level 3) and everyday people (Level 2). Please let us know if you would like to help with a higher-level Bio Team or one of the other Teams.

You joined the Project before the Voyage started in late 2018. We would like to invite you to consider a "fast track" Voyage, especially if you would like to work at a higher level on the Biography Team. If you’re interested, choose a profile from your own watchlist that you have completed to the best of your ability and compare it to the Voyage Biography Standards. If your profile is at Level 2 or better, include a link to the profile in your response to this check-in for a “fast track” review.

We would also like to invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. If you request to join our GoogleGroup, please be sure to include your Wiki ID. 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 and WikiTree. The Project’s mission is to:

Make profiles beautiful! We clean up messy biography sections and sources, and try to set standards for attractive, useful, and well-written biographies, starting with those we manage.

We know you’re working on profiles *smile* We would like to hear about successes you’ve had toward the Project’s goals. We would also appreciate any feedback you might have to help us improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or privately via private message to either of us.

Sincerely,

Debi Hoag and Robin Shaules Co-Leaders, Profile Improvement Project

Hi Debi and Robin!

Thanks for checking in!

To be honest, I'm not sure how active I can be at the moment. I'm happy to stay on the Biography Team Level 1 for now. As I'm able to be more active here on WikiTree, I'll be in touch re: the fast-tracked voyage.

Thanks so much!

Kind regards,

Vicky Majewski

Thanks for getting back to us, Vicky. Let us know if you have any suggestions or questions, Debi

  • I'm quite happy to continue working on the Tipperary sub-team.  :)
  • TBH I haven't been too active lately due to ongoing health issues, but I'd be happy to help out in any way I can!

Happy Sunday!!

Sandy and I have been getting ready for take off!!! She set us up a Discord Channel so we can communicate with each other about our Project and I have been trying to recruit more people and updating our page.

I added a link to a spreadsheet that we can use to track our progress. I am also going to add a shareable one for those who want to make it a joint effort.

Here is the link to our Discord channel https://discord.gg/5yUSzTD8

Let me know if you want added to the group spreadsheet.

Blessed Be!!!

Hello Vicky,

The Australia Project leadership team are carrying out our annual check-in to see how you are going in the project. We'd really like to give you a huge thank you for all your work on Australian profiles over the past year! We've made great progress in 2020/21 with your assistance.

Please could you reply to this message, to let us know if you would like to stay on in the project and if you are happy with your current role and team involvement.

If you would like to do something additional or different, take a look on the Australia Project page to see what other opportunities there are.

It would also be great to get any feedback or suggestions that you have to improve the project.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Gillian! Apologies for the delay in replying to your message.

I'm more than happy to stay on the project and continue developing profiles and resources for the Northern Territory. I really appreciate all the work the leaders & other members have done in putting together pages with different tips and tricks on Australian research. Thank you all so much!

Kind regards,

Vicky

Thank you, Vicky!! It's marvellous having some attention on the Northern Terrritory. Gillian

Hi

Thanks for the welcome and thanks for any help. I am trying to type in my tree. I already have a tree on Ancestry and I am wondering if there is a way to send the from Ancestry to here. I am a terrible typer. No big deal, just being lazy. Thanks again.

ps I just saw that we can add DNA tests? I have one from Ancestry, how can I download it? Wow!

Hello and thank you. After a short break in which I made a couple new humans, I'm here again to build our tree. :)

I have a question, I have DNA results for my son. I'd like to add them to my profile somehow (or one for him) so that the information can be included in both my line and his father's line (of which a few have already requested this as soon as we have it available because of the specific value for that specific paternal line, it seems).

I'm not sure whether to just add his results to my profile or if there's a better option?

Thanks!

posted by Angie (Boyer) Nixon
Hello Angie! Apologies for the delay in replying. Congrats on the new additions to your family!

Unfortunately, WikiTree only allows us to add our own DNA tests; we are no longer allowed to add tests on behalf of others. If your son has his own WikiTree account (i.e. age 13 yrs or older), then he can add his own test and, as long as you and his father are attached as his parents (and all of your personal profiles are set to the yellow-lock privacy level), it will flow through both of your lines.

This page explains a bit more about how WikiTree attaches and uses DNA test information: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Connecting_DNA_Test_Results_to_WikiTree_Profiles

Hope this helps a little!

Kind regards,

Vicky Majewski

Vicky,

Thank you for you very well explained answer to my question. I found it immediately. You're the best for willingly helping a stranger. Scott Jensen

No worries! Glad I could help!  :)
Hello, I'm very new to this format. I have found my uncle's profile in need of an owner, so I figured out how to adopt it. Now, I am trying to link my grandfather [profile already exists] to my uncle, but I'm needing to find the WIKI ID______. I can't find the ID for my grandfather. I created his profile page, but can't find his WIKI ID anywhere. Can you help please?

Scott Jensen

posted by Scott Jensen
Hello Scott, thanks for your message. You can find the WikiTree ID of any profile by looking up at the right-hand corner of the profile page, on the top menu next to "My WikiTree". It's also located at the very end of the profile's link and in the form of "surname+number". So, for example, my ID is Freeth-52 and yours is Jensen-12427 . On your family tree, I can see you've got two grandfathers listed, one is Kleis-12 and the other is Jensen-12436.  :)

Hope this helps! Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Hi, Vicky!

Thank you for your participation in October 2020’s Source-a-thon. Your contributions helped us to clear over 57,000 profiles that needed sourcing. This makes our Shared Tree all that much better.

Keep up the great work!

Hello, Vicky!

Thanks for all the work you accomplished during our Connect-A-Thon 2020. It is amazing how many more profiles were created and added to our Shared Tree. You have every right to be pleased with your efforts!

Hi Vicky,

I am new to Wikitree so this may be a silly question, but I will ask it anyway. I recently uploaded a gedcom file from Ancestry.com. I have gone through all the suggested comparisons and matched all those that are currently on Wikitree. Now I wonder, can I add new profiles of my ancestors by moving them one at a time from the gedcom file, so I move all the sources with them, or must I add them manually one at a time? Thank you for your help. Eva Bailey (Bailey-20015)

Hiya,

I'm learning my way around here, very early days. I was wondering if it was possible to tag entries like for Thornton Chase? I'm a bit lost.

Can you help me correct an entry on my WiKi Tree? I put in a wrong spouse and do not know how to correct,

Thank you , Deborah Tennant Crouch

Hello Deborah! Thanks for your message, and apologies for the delay in replying.

To remove an incorrect spouse, just go to the person's profile and click on the "Edit" tab. In the edit window, look to the right-hand side at the various relationships, and where it says "Spouse", click on the "Add/Remove Spouse" link. This will take you to a new page... scroll all the way down to where it says "Remove So-And-So as spouse", and click on the big green button.

If that doesn't work, let me know and I'll try to walk you through it.

Hope this helps!

Kind regards,

Vicky Majewski

Hi Vicky;

The Ireland Project (previously the Irish Roots Project) has now changed its structure into Teams. We require everyone with the Ireland Badge to be a member of at least one Team or Sub-Team and our google group.

See https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Ireland for details.

The Teams are :-

1 Categories Team
2 Counties Team
3 Managed Profiles Team
4 Membership Team
5 Profile Improvement Team
6 Topics Team
7 Diaspora

Can you let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project and which team(s) you’d like to join. Please also let me know your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group or confirm you are already a member of the google group.

Many thanks,

Hi Vicky! After a long period of dormancy, we've figured out how to move forward with the Volunteer Coordinators project!

Please visit the project page and let me know if you are still interested in participating with these new changes: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Volunteer_Coordinators

Or if you have any questions.

Thanks! Eowyn

Hi Vicky, You had asked if I had any questions and I do have one. When I go to wiki tree, I never see a place to sign in and it takes me awhile to finally get to my profile. Is this the way you are supposed to do it? I am still learning about wiki tree but have not had a lot of time to experiment or read up on directions. Thanks. Nancy
posted by Nancy Hulbert
Hi Vicky,

I’m working with Eowyn to check-in with everyone holding the Project Coordinator badge to make sure we have the most up-to-date information. As a Project Coordinator badge holder, please can you let me know which project(s) you are currently coordinating and if you have a specific role as coordinator in those projects?

Many thanks,

Susie
