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 25,000 individuals, which includes extended family members because I was attempting to do what WikiTree does, which is create one single family tree.

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 I am always reminding family that these books are a 'work in progress' because they change constantly and are usually outdated by the end of the reunion.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 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.

Hi Denise, I"ve noticed some of your find a grave templates have some errors. It should be double squiggly brackets {{ }} with FindAGrave|123456 inside. Find A Grave has to be all capitalized and smooshed together. Thanks! Emma
Just Joined this Site am also doing Much on DNA Ancestry! Just Connected with Denise Jarrett !

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:

Hi Denise, Welcome to WikiTree. It's always good to see people from my home state of Louisiana volunteer. We have a Louisiana Project which works to improve our Louisiana Profiles. You might give us a look when you have had a chance to get familiar with the way WikiTree works.
