I live in Anchorage, Alaska, happily retired, and fill the long dark winter days working on genealogy. (OK, sometimes I fill some of the summer days with genealogy too.)

During the late 1970s through the early 1990s my mother and her sister did vigorous genealogy work -- writing people, joining genealogy groups, visiting graveyards, visiting newly found relatives -- collecting documentation. I inherited 5 boxes of files which I have entered in WikiTree with the supplemental help from and Find A Grave (and yes, sometimes I have found that all three sources have been a little off). I only wish that my mother and my aunt were here today to see what I have discovered...

Acting as proxy for family and friends: Butts-1431, Tingley-992, Purl-34, and Hickok-457

When not building onto our trees, I enjoy sourcing un-sourced orphans (the ones with my family names, incase one is mine), merging them with another existing profile if I find one, and connecting them to existing profiles of their families if I can find them. Makes the days go by fast.

Hi Denise,

Congratulations on being Pre-1700 certified!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, coordination is essential. Thanks for joining the Jewish Roots Project.
