Communication Preferences: I am interested in communicating private message with cousins and anyone else with an interest in genealogy. Here is my family tree.
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).

Born and raised in Wisconsin. I used to 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. I'm also an Ambassador with the Social Media Team and a member of the Wisconsin Project. As well, I am the Coordinator for the Steies Name Study and the Fregin Name Study.

Are You My Cousin?


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 started 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.

Census is usually done building by building, in a district. It is not done in one day but over a period of days. See if you can find at the top of the census return page the date this page was enumerated.
From 1790 to 1820, the censuses were conducted as of the first Monday in August (August 2, 1790; August 4, 1800; August 6, 1810; August 7, 1820); the 1830-1880
1900 censuses were as of June 1;
the 1890 census was as of June 2;
April 15 was Census Day in 1910;
the 1920 census was as of January 1.
Since 1930, Census Day has been April 1.
Fast Facts

Since the woman came over with her two sisters and was counted in the household of each in the same census, it indicates she lived with each one of her sisters during that 12 months the census was counting

Q: who was living in this domicile in the past 12 months

Not everyone listed was actually living there during those 12 months in every household listed, but they had lived there during those 12 months prior to the official date of the census

OK Chandra, I found another connection for you.

Sarah Cole (nee Aslett) was one of the Salem witches. You are 11 degrees from her. You are actually the 8th great grandniece of Sarah Cole - which means you are a direct descendent of Sarah's sister Mary Aslett. And as always I found this when checking out the EPOW, discovering my own connection (17 degrees) which happens to go through the Dodge and Stephens family, I always think of you when it comes to the Dodge Family. LOL

Your Kiwi 6th Cousin in Canada!!

Thanks for the info, Robynne! I really appreciate it!

Thank you so much for the merge. I had both spellings in my files Graw and Kroh. Eva Goeken

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.

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.

Nice to read about you Chandra on Meet Our Members. We are 9th cousins through your Clark and Lawton family lines.

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.
