On WikiTree, U's goals are to:

Profile portfolio

U has a list of profiles and spaces that he has added or contributed to on Wikitree that are his favorite. These profiles and spaces display his research skills, usually including images, many sources, ample biographies, and connections to other profiles. Many are also related to LGBT history.

Here are his current favorite profiles and spaces not related to his current personal project:

Current project: transgender men in US history

U's personal project focuses on transgender men in the United States from 1866 to 1966 (or from the beginning of Reconstruction to the end of the post World War II era). While there is no record of a genealogical project that focuses on trans men, similar social historical projects include Jen Manion's Female Husbands: A Trans History (2020), Louis Sullivan's From Female To Male: The Life of Jack Bee Garland (1990), and Emily Skidmore's True Sex: The Lives of Trans Men at the Turn of the Twentieth Century (2018).

"Transgender men" refers to men, or people seen as men in their day-to-day lives, who were not assigned male at birth. In genealogical research, this means looking for people who have been marked as both "male" and "female" in records at various points in their lives as well as seeking out stories (journal entries, news articles, etc.) that tie these men to family members and birth names. A genealogical perspective is useful for seeing trends in how trans men chose their new names, what occupations they went into during this period, and what locations they were drawn to in order for us to begin to see the connections between trans men and US history.

The following profiles, added and contributed to by U, are part of this personal project.

  • Joseph Lobdell (1829-1912), notable hunter and vagrant woodsman
  • Murray H. Hall (1840-1901), notable New York City bail bondsman and Tammany Hall politician
  • Edgar Burnham (1840-1918), a drugstore assistant who lived most of his life in Iowa
  • Charles Winslow Hall (1860-1901), a dilettante who traveled around Europe
  • Jack Bee "Beebe Beam" Garland (1869-1936), notable nurse, social worker, journalist, and unofficial veteran of the Philippine-American war
  • Nicolai de Raylan (1873-1906), personal secretary to the Russian consul in Chicago 1892-1906
  • Neil Garess (1886-1958), a medical lab technician for four decades
  • Dr. Alan L Hart (1890-1962), notable Tuberculosis researcher and medical fiction author
  • Jim McHarris (1924-aft. 1955), a mechanic who was outed in the early 1950s and made to serve on a prison farm for "cross dressing."

Other profiles not contributed to by U are also part of his personal project. If you are interested in learning about those profiles or LGBT history, feel free to email U or check out the LGBT category on Wikitree.

Hertyl and Spertyl Slowsky Tortoises face each other, with the WikiTree globe superimposed over the words "Wonderful WikiTree" between them.  Beneath the Tortoises are the words "We're all winners in the end".

P.S. you still haven't told me why rocks.  :)
