I was born and raised in the Lawncrest section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 2002 I made a career move to Gloucester, Massachusetts where I met and married my husband, Bill, a (retired) Army Major who is the Director of Veteran's Services for (my 19th cousin) JFK's hometown of Brookline, Massachusetts. In 2009 we moved to beautiful New Hampshire where we purchased and are renovating our (old) new home. Together we have five great kids and, to date, four amazing grandchildren.

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Genette or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Genette:

Hi Genette,

You uploaded a gedcom in 2013 that included William Lewis Herndon Arthur-490, son of President Arthur, and a second profile (Arthur-488) for the same name, born and died in the same place, but with different birth and death years.

Is it a duplicate with alternate information, a sibling who was named the same, or a completely different person? Should a merge be initiated?

Hi Genette

I believe you are probably related to my wife by way of Woodruff-1312. Her mother is a Woodruff & her roots are in Salem & Cumberland County NJ. I'm having a difficult time finding the parents in order to make the connection.

Hi, I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Let me know. I can help you figure out if there's a project and introduce you to the project leaders.
Welcome to the DNA Project:

Please make sure each bit of DNA test information is added to the actual test participant's profile, not someone else's like your own. To make cousin connections, WikiTree needs to see the FamilyTree tab. Check that your Privacy on your profile is set to "Private with Public Family Tree" as a minimum. (Living minors should have an Unlisted privacy level.)

Please set your preferences for your Tags Followed to include DNA and other terms on the (G2G) feed:

As you add your family lines and connect to the big WikiTree, you may find new cousins. Use the Relationship calculator to see if you are related to me, Cooper-1 with
