Miranda (Hollenbeck) Cartier is participating with Nor'Easters during the 2019 Clean-a-Thon, correcting 217 suggestions.

I was raised in north central South Dakota on a cattle ranch, where my parents still live. I technically classify myself as part of "Generation X" however I was born on the "cusp" of the generation and am one of those rare gems that can be considered a "Xennial."

From March 1997 until December 2002, I served in the South Dakota National Guard. I graduated from the University of South Dakota, Vermillion in December 2002 with a double major (German and Political Science) and double minor (Spanish and Military Science). While obtaining my undergraduate I was able to travel to Jena, Thüringia, Deutschland and participate in an immersion study program during the year 2000.

After graduation, I spent several years on Active Duty with the United States Army in El Paso, Texas after which time I transitioned into the civilian sector. First at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico and then after our department was laid off I made the move to the Northeast where I live with my husband and children today.

I've been doing genealogical research on my Hollenbeck family line for about 14 years since about 2008 on Ancestry.com and discovered Wikitree in 2018.

I'm a part of the Hollenbeck One-Name Study and am working on several collateral family lines as I am working on a huge undertaking to write a family genealogy book.

My German and Spanish is a bit rusty and I can read much better than I can speak it these days. Please reach out if you need any assistance.

Hi, Miranda. Could you please document your reasoning for concluding that Vrooman-206 and Vrooman-496 do not represent the same person? The profiles sure look like the same person!

I've been perplexed and frustrated by the Huycks of the first half of the 1700s. I believe there has been some major confusion/conflation of different people. The Andries Huyck-12 is one of several Huyck profiles that I adopted because it needed a manager; I know it is connected to at least one child and a wife with peculiarly erroneous name spellings (Catyrna, Cormelia). I am not familiar with the Alice Burridge Hobart book that you mention; it sounds like it might have some good clues to disentangling the Huycks. Records are elusive.

My elusive Huyck is Marritje/Maria Huyck-127, married 1774 as spinster of Albany County; supposedly born in 1753. I suppose Johannes Huyck b. 1731 could be a candidate for her father.

Thanks so much for your contributions to the Civil War Project!! You may not be aware that we have a Civil War Photo Page and also have categories for most medals.

The flags page typically is for the flags that go into the image section of the sticker. There is no problem with an image of a medal being there but I am just wanting to let you know of other options. Thanks again!!

I merged your James Pine with mine, but on further review, I have some doubts that they are the samesince there are census results showing James Pine in Annapolis and in Wisconsin (1860). Do you have some research showing the parents of Wisconsin James? I'll leave them merged until we get some definitive proof.

Yes! If you like, please add your 1812 ancestor to the page!

Hi Miranda and thanks for your post on the clan tartan page. The Scottish Register of Tartans does not seem to have a Donaldson Tartan. https://www.tartanregister.gov.uk/index Donaldson is normally a sept of Clan MacDonald - here's a link to our page of some of the MacDonald tartans https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:MacDonald_Tartans

Can you let me have a link to your tartan image please.
