Biography

US Black Heritage Project
Denise (Harden) Jarrett is a part of US Black heritage.
Africa Project
Denise (Harden) Jarrett has African ancestry.
Denise was featured in a Meet Our Members Post on the G2G Forum!
Denise (Harden) Jarrett was born in Cleveland, Ohio.

I began documenting our family history in 1990 when my father, Walter Harden, began aging. I would write down the names of family members he found as a result of his search. His father passed away when he was a young boy, so after his mother passed away in 1964, he began searching for relatives from his father's side of the family with a passion.

Today, I use Family Tree Maker and Ancestry.com to maintain over 35 trees, one major tree has over 30, 000 individuals, which includes extended family members in one tree and I manage about 15 others.

I have shared my research results at family reunions in the form of family history books. I am always reminding family that these books are a 'work in progress' because they change constantly and are usually outdated by the end of the reunion.

I have helped many to make a connection and I have personally connected with family lines lost. I look forward to helping other WikiTreers as well.

Family

I married James Phillip Jarrett on June 8, 1991 in Columbus, Ohio. We have two lovely daughters: Jalisa and Mariah. My husband passed away Sep 2019 and I retired from work a year later.

Hi Denise-

About a month ago, I sent you a private message with the subject line "Austin-14098's profile on WikiTree". Did you get that? I haven't heard back from you and I have a feeling it may have gone to your junk folder.

Hi Christy,

No sorry, I have not seen any messages from you. I'm assuming you want to be added to the trusted list for these profiles. Give me a few minutes and I will add you to the trusted list for these profiles.

Thanks Debi, but I do believe I added more than 50 profiles in February. Can you double check the stats please.
According to Emma's spreadsheet, you added 77 profiles in February so you didn't make the 100 count sticker. I'll check with Emma on the wording for the stickers because it is misleading.

Hi Denise,

Congratulations on certifying to work on pre-1700 profiles!

It’s very important to read and understand the Help:Pre-1700 Profiles page. These profiles for deep ancestors are shared by many, and collaborating on them works best if we all follow the guidelines in the certification quiz.

Primary sources should always be added to pre-1700 profiles at the time they are created. If you don't have a source for a pre-1700 profile, it would be best to ask for help in the G2G forum before creating the profile.

Hi Denise, you've been placing a template on profiles (slavery) that doesn't exist. Was there something you were trying to do with this template? Maybe you were thinking of adding categories? Emma :-)
Yes, I thought I was adding a slavery category to those who were born slaves. Was that not correct?
Anything inside double wavy brackets is a template--usually for a sticker or a link. This is never a category. We are going to work on our slavery categories soon, but for now they are here: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Slavery%2C_United_States_of_America All categories go above the Biography heading and have double brackets [[. ]] We can start a post in the group about how to categorize profiles.
Hi Denise, I was brought to your profile by your African American tag and couldn't help looking at your family's profiles (pictures always draw me in). I see what an amazing job you are doing on your family's history! I would love if you could join us at the African American Project to help us reach our project's goals. Our join post is here:
