Biography

I compiled my first family tree as a 5th grade elementary school project. I am fortunate that both sides of my family had historians interested in our family tree and had researched our ancestors before me. This has allowed me to verify family lines and increase our family tree branches.

I am interested in early US History and settlers. My direct family lines have been the US for 7 to 11 generations and settled in the Colonies of CT, MD, NC, NJ, NY, PA and VA. All lines of my tree had immigrated into the Colonies in the 1600 and 1700s.

I have many direct great-grandfathers, uncles and cousins who fought in the US Civil War, Confederacy, with many uncles and cousins as well, serving in NC and VA. Some KIA and others who were POWs who died at Point Lookout in the Union POW Camp and buried in a mass grave on the location.

Another interest is European history. Tracing my lines from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, into France, Spain, Germania, Scandanavia, Russia. Royal lineages and intermarriages of these families have spread my tree into many countries during the medieval period and prior.

I have a couple of great grandfathers who were sent to the US Colonies as indentured servants during a time when England was trying to populate the colonies.

Here are the twisted roots of my tree...

Hi Cynthia

I sent you a check-in message ten days ago about the 1776 Project to ask you about your past and continued involvement but have not yet heard back from you. Do you still want to be in the project?

If I don’t hear from you by the same time next week I’ll assume that you’ve moved on to other things but you’re most welcome to re-join the project at any time.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Best wishes,

Mary~ Project Coordinator, 1776 Project

Hi again,

I sent you a message a couple of weeks ago on behalf of the Germany Project and have not yet heard back from you. I hope you are well!

If I don’t hear back from you by the end of April, I will assume you no longer wish to be a member of the Germany Project and I’ll go ahead and remove you from our member roster. You are, of course, welcome to rejoin at any time via our G2G sign-up post.

Best wishes,

Hi,

The Germany Project Leaders are doing their semi-annual check-in with all project members and we want to verify that you’re still interested in being a member of the Project. Please respond by private message and let me know.

REMINDERS: (1) We use Google Groups for project collaboration and you aren’t yet a member of the group, please submit a join request here (make sure to add your name/WikiTree ID to the request). (2) I see you've added German_Roots (our old project name) to your G2G tags, you should also add GERMANY to your followed G2G tags so you don't miss any discussions in G2G (see: Help:Tags#How_to_follow_tags Help:Tags).

Hello,

I don't want to take up much space but am "covering all bases" so to speak. I have been trying to add important information about my great grandparents on here for quite a while and you are the only profile manager and have their settings as private. I was close with both and not only feel they would want everyone to see their family as they were so loving but more importantly the world needs to know how amazing they were beyond simple birth and death dates. I have photographs, letters, documents and more of several generations and am not asking for any credit publishing accurate info- I simply want it published. I have sent two requests, posted twice publicly on their pages, emailed privately and now leaving this memo in case the others were overlooked. I am sure you are very busy and I admire your contributions to this site and thank you for your time. I hope this message finds you and your family in good health and spirits- Cheers!

You sent me a message 2 years ago following a merge. You and my wife, Nancy Ann Titus, b. 1940, are 8th cousins once removed. You should be able to see this also on wikitree. I just added the line on my Milligan tree on ancestry.com. Cheers, Dick Gates, b 197

Hi Cynthia Denise,

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,

Susie

Leader, Global Cemeteries
