I started working on my family tree in the 1990's and have never stopped working on it. My ancestors are a mishmash - Mayflower passengers, slaveholders, a dozen or so Filles du Roi, a family who fled from Scotland after a scandal, a free man of color who fought with Francis "The Swamp Fox" Marion, survivors of the Deerfield Massacre, and lots and lots and lots of farmers.
These days, I'm far more interested in other people's branches. Almost all of my time is spent working for WikiTree's US Black Heritage Project; I'm a Project Coordinator of the USBH Notables project, and a USBH PATH Guide.
When I'm not puzzling over genealogy, I'm working with my husband to restore our 250-year-old house to its pre-Constitution-era glory. Oh, and, working on the genealogy of the Scots-Irish family who first "owned" the property we now live on.
When I shuffle off this mortal coil, I would like all of the profiles that are of direct ancestors and their descendants to be entrusted to the care of the WikiTree Team and/or my husband Nathan Schmidt, and/or my cousin Ginny Winslett, if she wants any of the Weathers-related profiles. Any non-family profiles with a privacy level of OPEN can be orphaned.
