I caught the genealogy bug in 1990 at a Jordan family reunion. The reunion brought together cousins who had not seen each other in years (my father and his generation), as well as the later generations who had never met (my generation and younger), and a few of the remaining older generation. We took pictures spanning four generations that weekend!

WikiTree Activities


2018 Source-a-Thon

I signed up earlier this year, so I have a much lower bib # for the 2018 Source-a-Thon, #279!  :) I'm back with my original team captain, but she is leading Team Merry Moppers this year.


2017 Source-a-Thon

I'm back on Team Tennessee with race #422 for the 2017 Source-a-Thon!


2016 Source-a-Thon

I've been assigned to Team Tennessee with race #413 for the 2016 Source-a-Thon to kick off Family History Month!


Current Research


I have had the most luck researching my Swedish lines, as Swedish church records are excellently awesome! So far my only known famous relative is my 5th cousin 2x removed, astronaut Buzz Aldrin. I am continuing to work with my Swedish relatives on the Sweden Project.

Italy - Omignano

With access to the 1866-1929 Civil Registrations image collection on Family Search for my great-grandfather's hometown of Omignano in Salerno, I have been able to make some progress on my Italian ancestry. Since the town is rather small, and a lot of intermarrying occurred, I have been working on something of a One Place Study on the town of Omignano, manually indexing the records into a spreadsheet. So far I have completed the deaths from 1875 (start of the printed forms) through 1929. Now I need to update my Italian profiles for the Italian Roots Project.

Kim's WikiTree to-do list


I am also very excited about using DNA for genealogy, and have had myself and my parents tested. DNA has confirmed that I am the daughter of Joseph Jordan[1] and Janet Jurgens[2]. Now I am working through my match lists to find new relatives.


  1. Paternal relationship is confirmed by a 3581.5 cM autosomal and 196.1 cM X GEDmatch match between Kim Jordan GEDmatch M220754 and father Joseph Jordan GEDmatch A875805.
  2. Maternal relationship is confirmed by a 3581.5 cM autosomal and 196.1 cM X GEDmatch match between Kim Jordan GEDmatch M220754 and mother Janet Jurgens GEDmatch A502599.

Thanks Kim I didn't know that. Thanks for kind of pitching in for me some on Friday night and yesterday till I started I knew about my brother and sister in law for a week but the night before Friday my sister called and said that she was coming down. Then while I was walking with my sister in law my second cousin called and said he was stopping by on the way back to Florida so that was a surprise to me and my dad. How am I doing as a leader of the team with all the interpretations that I have had?
