Followed Tags
Richard is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
My fifth great grandmother on my Hollenbeck branch was Debora Decker of New Netherland.
Debora descends from Jan Gerritsen Decker.
My Y-DNA haplogroup, confirmed with a 111 marker test and a SNP Pack, is R-S19342. My GEDmatch kit number is M434974.
My wife, who is not currently active in genealogy, descends from the first peoples of Mexico. My interest in the "first peoples" project is for her.
I am interested in encouraging my fellow GEDmatches to join up at WikiTree and my fellow DNA-tested cousins to sign-up at GEDmatch. GEDCOM ID: 3765535; GEDmatch kit #M434974
Many of my ancestors, such as Maria (Egelkraut) Neidhardt, were from Germany.
Hulda (Hunsaker) Hollenbeck is my second great grandmother from Adair County, Missouri. She descends from Hartman Hunsaker of Switzerland.
23andMe tells me I am 39.4% British and Irish. says I'm 23% Irish. My most recent fully Irish ancestor is William Francis McCarty whose parents came from Youghal, County Cork, Ireland in the early 19th century. Most of my more distant Irish ancestors are Scots-Irish in Northern Ireland.
Being US-born with northwestern European ancestry, I am not trying to call myself "Latin American." My wife is nearly 100% indigenous Mexican and my daughter scores 47% Native American at AncestryDNA (she didn't get it from me). I suppose I could categorize myself as an "honorary Latin American."
From time to time I find I am either related to somebody who is notable or I would like to honor somebody I know is notable. Since I use the "notables" tag in these profiles, I thought I ought to join the project.
Many of my ancestors were Palatine Immigrants.
Many of my paternal grandmother's ancestors were Quakers from Pennsylvania --> North Carolina. Some migrated west into Indiana.
My fourth paternal great grandmother, Rachel (Van Wormer) Hallenbeck, descended from the Quick family of New Netherland
I descend from Peter J. Stice (1787 - 1877) born in Rutherford County, North Carolina and migrated to Washougal, Clarke County, Washington, USA.
My 4th geat grandmother was Rachel Van Wormer Hallenbeck

Hi Richard. I'll have to put my DNA test on here, it appears we're probably related thru the Germans in Hebron/Glen Ullin ND. My gr-grandmother was Bertha Hoerauf.

Hi Richard,

We have been working on setting up the Portal World-the Netherlands Project so now it's official.

On that page, we have a member sticker and category that you can add to your own profile and a tag for following us on G2G.

Here are the Portal pages we need some help with. We would ask that you send a Trusted List request for the portals you wish to work on or are interested in.

Thanks for joining and hope to see or hear from you soon :-)

Greets from Portal World the Netherlands,

Hi Richard,

I was wondering if perhaps you would be interested to work on the Portal World-The Netherlands with Melissa and Bill and hopefully more members ? I was thinking maybe we can make it a sub Project of the Dutch Roots Project, where you all can add or work on more specific things related to the Netherlands you would like to see added there or work on.

If you are interested just add your name to the list and let me know, or you can of course contact Melissa or Bill directly.

Greets from the Netherlands,

Bea :)

Hi Richard, I am willing to help you try to figure out John Cole and John Cole. However, I really am a beginner so I would probably be better with direction.

Hi Richard,

Did you know there's a new Source-a-Thon 2017 (first register here) organized for 30 September -2 October 2017 ? A huge event, to keep things organized we are going to work with teams again, since you're a member of our Project, perhaps you would like to join our Team Flying Dutchmen Team to help and source and improve Unsourced Netherlands profiles ?

We sure can use some help and you can win prizes, but the best thing of course is we are going to work on this together get as many as possible Unsourced profiles Sourced and improved and have a lot a fun ! :)

Thanks Richard. I'm excited. I have the feeling I was prepared for this a long time ago. Since I was a boy I was introduced to our family genealogy by my father. Even though I'm already the 6th generation in Argentina, after several in the US, I think this is what Scotts do to guarantee the lineage is told. My daughter is 9 and she is already asking!! What's different now in Technology and the possibility of exchange and to check with others. Happy to be here!!
