I have started a Hauri surname project and a Luce surname project, please join me!


I am a retired attorney, currently working a few days a week at my husband's bookstore, Shining Lotus in Denver, Colorado.

I am an ethnic Mormon from an old Wyoming ranching family. My immediate ancestors were pioneers of the American West. My distant ancestry is mostly colonial American with a bit of Native American and a chunk of Swedish.

I have been doing genealogy since about 1968 and have been a professional genealogist since 1983. I have an undergraduate degree in History and did graduate work in Medieval Studies. My research specialty is genealogical invention and fakes in the Middle Ages. I'm a curator at Geni.com. I also serve on the board of several genealogical societies and volunteer as a project administrator at Family Tree DNA.

Hello, Justin,

Thank You So Much for responding to my message. Genealogy is not only a Fascinating Journey into our Past, it connects us to Our Present and Our Future as well. It's Amazing to discover the number of Direct Ancestors we Share, as well as the multitude of Extended Family Members.. I've Always been Fascinated with Scotland and Ireland to actually find " Roots" that connect me, even in small ways is Wonderful.

Have a Awesome Day,

Hello Justin.

According to the Relationship Finder we are 20th Cousins as we share the same 19th Great-Grandfather. The relationship is a distant one yet we are Still Cousins. I think that's Awesome.

Good Morning Justin ~ You are all set for Luce Name Study as well. You can see the "button" for the Luce Project listed for anyone looking at Luces:


Just curious if you also want to use the Name Study template ? Some people prefer just using the Name Study category ( I use the just the category myself).

Here is an example of a profile with the template:


My best, Maggie

Hi Justin ~ You didn't do anything wrong. Everything you did from your end was perfect. It's just that there some re-directing of the Name Study space that can only be done by a Leader or tech person at WikiTree. Let me know when you are ready for the Luce Name Study...Good Night, Maggie
