Biography

At first I thought I would use Wikitree to organize my information, and then walk away. In the process I learned the meaning of one world tree, and discovered how deep are my Atlantic Canada roots!

I've joined the Canada project, and have been working on the settlers who came to New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and PEI before the American Revolution: some are my ancestors, others were their friends and neighbours.

This means I may contribute to profiles managed by other WikiTree members. To the extent possible, I'm using sources that are available to anyone, without a fee, but its not always possible. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to let me know!

Je suis bilingue aussi. I'm fluent in French and in English, and I'm happy to help other researchers figure out what that darned record actually says.

Laurie, thanks for your merge request. I just merged Emerson-379 into Emerson-9 and did a sloppy job in merging the text section, so if you want to play with it, feel free. I adopted 379 and a couple of other orphan Emersons a few years ago and had done nothing with any of them since. Bad me. BTW, we are 9th cousins!

Hi Laurie, I've approved the merge between Pitman-10 and Pittman-1269. Neither of these Pitmans is related to the Thomas Pitman-1252 in my family tree. I took over Pitman-1269 so it wouldn't be confused with my Thomas, who WAS actually born in Monmouth, Wales in 1614. I am happy to turn over Pitman-1269 to the person managing the Pitman-10 branch of the family tree if they are active.
