I've been addicted to building out my family tree. I think it satisfies the hunter/trapper in my DNA. There are 6500+ people currently in my extended tree (I feel that having siblings and cousins pegged helps avoid confusion), but here have only been able to upload direct ancestors. I've been plugging away at this on my own since about 2002, but only recently have had the opportunity and the time to put nearly every waking free hour into it. I'm becoming especially good at finding unnamed parents by casting about with estimated dates, places, naming conventions (see the old Dutch ways) and the like.

I also volunteer for Find-A-Grave, having taken thousands of photos over the last couple of years.

I received a link from a public health professional some time back, to a document which reviews a lot of the epidemics which swept New England from the 1600s on, and if I can find it I will post the link for you all.

Alycia is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
From Ontario, Canada
Specifically, Nancy Ann DeWitt, wife of John Adam Mildeberger (1775) daughter of...uncertain. I had her as the daughter of Hannah Dean and Henry Dewitt in Connecticut, but it is more probable she is the daughter of Willem DeWitt and Esther Dyckman in New York.
Looking for Hester/Esther Dyckman's people. She was the mother of Nancy Ann DeWitt. I can find very little information regarding her.
I've a large group of minor aristocrats who are supposedly direct ancestors hailing from France and the Netherlands, and possibly Greater Germany before Germany was Germany. I want to learn what is and what is not a good source for this sort of thing, and which sources have been discredited over the years. For instance, the story that Anneke Webber Jans was the daughter of William the Silent - now not true.
Foerster, Förster, Forsterin. Luthera n Susanna Forster seems to have married Catholic Johann Peter Goebel back in 1775. Is this possible?
Catholic family from Bavaria.
Brick wall: Other brick wall James Timothy Keating poss from Kerry, Ireland, poss from Franklin Mass, b. about 1856, supposedly to Margaret Bernard and John Keating, a Tailor. Mother born either in Norfolk Co, MA or Ireland, father b in Ireland. He was a liar and a scoundrel!
Catholics from Knoydart, Nova Scotia.
I have John Joseph McCrea (1859-1912), less sure of his father Andrew, b. Ireland abt 1821, married 1848 to Margaret Cullen, possibly son of James McCrea (abt 1800) and Mary Margaret Kerr. Unknown what part of Ireland, as most of my information comes from Canadian Census Data. John Joseph came to the US, married Josephine Bridget Downey in Somerville MA in 1896.
Brick Wall: Ludwig Mildeberger b. in Germany b. abt. 1685-1700 poss Mannheim. Son was Johann Adam Mildeberger b. 1717. Alternate spellings: Mildenberger, Milderberger, Mildenburger, Mildeburger, etc.
From Mannheim, Germany area. Also Mildeberger, Milteberger, etc.
From Tullow, County Carlow. Also spelled "Nowlan."
From Tullow area, County Carlow, Ireland
Puritan Great Migration: in New England prior to 1640, born in Old World.
May have been corrupted to Tibbal or Tibbals in the Northeast US, may be a German name. I have Caroline, daughter of Philip Tabele and Mary Brouwer, Philip being the son of Jackob Tabele from Germany and Hannah Pettinger. There it ends.

Hi Alycia,

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 :)

Thanks for your note re Ann (Unknown), marrying Matthew Lume. I have no doubt she married a Lume, but there are no sources I have found to show her spouse's first name, birth info, including him as father of her children. What sources show his name, birth and marriage info?

This is the profile in question. It should be referenced on the email you receive when someone leaves a comment on it.

Hi Alycia,

You updated Lydia Pingree-5's death date. What is your source for the revised date? There is a source in the profile that shows the 1689 date. I'd like to add the source to my records. Thank you.

Alycia, on Hardy-57, you posted the following. What are your sources for the various claims? We'd like to pursue this possibility, but need sources:

"There is a Robert Hardy who baptised a son Thomas Hardy at Bradford St Peter, West Riding of Yorkshire, England in 1600. [citation needed] Since that church seems to have been the spiritual center of the folks who emigrated to the New World [citation needed], wouldn't it make sense that Robert, rather than Thomas, is Thomas's father? .... And Bradford was the name of the town he supposedly settled in....what say you?"
