I am a lecturer in early modern literature and material culture at the University of Stirling (you can find more about my academic work here).
I am a Scot, but my immediate ancestors are American, Russian, and Baltic-German, and I have research interests in all four areas. Since joining Wikitree I have been particularly focused on growing the site's coverage of the Russian and Baltic-German nobilities in the early modern and modern periods.At present, I am Team Leader of the Baltic-German Team and am always delighted to hear from fellow researchers!

Thank you for posting newly discovered information about my grandmother, Hanorah Roman, and her family. It was all new to me! I did not know their family name had been Romanovsky. I always suspected it had been shortened, probably at the time they came to America. I have since discovered that some or all of this information is on familysearch.com. Are you aware of other sources? Regards, David Martin

I'm working on some of the Glasenapp - Roth connection and I noticed that you seem to systematically miss to set current last name of the women to the last name of their husband! Happy genealogizing! Ronald

I see you recently added a succession box and categories for Estonian Governers on some Swedish profiles.
You have, however, not added any sources to support these facts and since they are pre-1700 it is even more important to add sources to the profiles.
