Communication Preferences: I am interested in communicating private message with cousins and anyone else with an interest in genealogy. Here is my family tree. Ancestors ancestors
I love talking to people about genealogy (whether it's mine or not). My Mom is the only other person in my life who has a serious interest, so it gets kind of lonely. I don't mind helping others with research (especially for the Chippewa, Eau Claire, and Dunn Counties in Wisconsin).

Chandra has participated in 11 out of 52 weeks during the 2021 52 Weeks of Accuracy Challenge.

Born and raised in Wisconsin. I currently work as a cashier at a grocery store. I got the interest in genealogy from my Mom, Sue Dodge. I wouldn't have gotten as far as I did without all the work she and others in my family did before me.

I found Wikitree back in January of 2019. I've learned a lot from the members here, and still learn something new everyday.

I am currently a Greeter and an Ambassador with the Social Media Team. As well, I am the Coordinator for the Steies Name Study.

Research

Here are some of my research goals:

  • I'm interested in breaking down the brick wall that is my 3rd Great Grandmother, Jane (Newman) Clark (1818-1878). The only source of information I have on her is from "History of Dunn County, Wisconsin (1925)". According to the book she was born in New York State on 26 Jul 1818. She may have been from in or around the Hartwick area.
  • I've stared a Free Space Project with the goal of identifying and connecting members of the Booth/Kidd family that immigrated from County Londonderry, Ireland to Blackstone, Massachusetts.
  • I'd really like to find out what happened to my 2nd Great Grand Uncle, Lorenzo Dodge (1854-abt.1891). According to family lore he left Wisconsin and went "out west" where he disappeared. Through collaberation here on WikiTree, it was found that the last mention of him was a foreclosure notice in 1891 in North Dakota.

Other Interests

My interests outside of genealogy are reading (a lot of fantasy and historical fiction), playing Nancy Drew Mystery PC games and anything Doctor Who. I'm also a bit of an artist, although I don't work on my art as much as I used to.


Advance Directive

In the event of my death (preferably in 90 years or so.......), in order to ensure that my work is not lost I would like:

  • My personal profile to be set to either open or public as is appropriate.
  • My personal profile and any open profiles that I manage to be turned over to any WikiTree Leader willing to manage them.
  • My private profiles turned over to any Wikitree Leader willing to manage them, and opened as is appropriate.

Note: If my Mom, Sue Dodge, is still living, I would like all of the profiles I manage (including my personal profile) to be transfered to her.

Chandra,

As always I check the connections with the EPOW (example person of the week) and imagine my shock to find that you are related to the chef Julia Childs!! (McWilliams-675) She is your 7th cousin 3 times moved - or 7C3R for short. And I discovered this because Julia's connection to me (18 degrees) came via the Beeman family and of course we both know that you are descended from the Beeman Family.

Ciao

Your 6th cousin

Hi Chandra!!! Pleased to meet you!! We’re cousins! How cool is that??? My Mum’s side are Wheeler’s!

Hi, Chandra,

We are 8th cousins once removed through John Kingsley (Kingsley-131). First relation i've found on Wikitree. I'm a!so from Wisconsin but have been in Illinois for 40 plus years. Still working on getting my tree completely connected here. Like you I'm obsessed with genealogy. The search of 30 generations said we have 439 common ancestors! I guess what surprised me .org is now far back we can get. View also been having fun using the relationship quick links...I guess you were surprised to find how many of them we're related to because our ancestry leads back to the early New England settlers.

Good Morning Chandra, It appears through Relationship Finder that you and I are 10th cousins once removed through my Ruggles/Smith line. The connecting link is Christina (Penn) Billington, my 9th great grandmother and you 10th. This is a line that I had not previously heard of so am grateful for that information. Please feel free to look over all branches of my family line which might give you some leads to other parts of yours.

Hi Chandra

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Pre-1700 ancestors can be shared by many descendants, so collaboration is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.

The United States Project may fit your research focus. If not, use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find other possibilities. Review the project page to learn about resources and guidelines as well as how to collaborate with the project members.

The relationship finder says that you and I are 6th cousins!! Am glad you found your way to Wikitree!!

I wonder if I mentioned it when we were chatting about the Stephens last year?

Hi distant cousin!! Good to see you here.

Hope you enjoy WikiTree as much as I have. You never know when you will find a lost family member or ancestor. Or maybe find a hidden family secret about an ancestor. Genealogy to me is like being a detective looking for clues into the past.
