In my younger years (approx. 7-14 yrs old), with my mother and one brother, we showed, bred, and sold guinea pigs; winning trophies and ribbons within Ontario, Canada.

I have a degree in Interior Design and in the process of getting a MA in Management.

Officially/seriously started ancestry and genealogy research--for my family and others--in mid to late December 2016, with the interest in doing so for about 10 years prior at minimum.

Majority of my work goes into WikiTree, Ancestry (not paying), Family Search, Find A Grave, and BillionGraves.

Project starter on WikiTree for Canadian Corps Cyclist Battalion on 10 Feb 2017. Co-managed with Casey Anderson who originally started the project outside this website. (Credit goes to Terry Wright for creating the free space profile!)

Project starter for the Tuck Name Study on March 29, 2017.

Canadian Corps Cyclist Battalion


The Canadian government may be honouring the Canadian Corps Cyclist Battalion unit from WWI in 2018, and we're trying to find as many descendants of those men as possible, as they would likely be interested to learn about these honours.

We currently have a few Canadian Expeditionary Force Divisional Cyclist documents from 1915 that list those who were apart of the Battalion.

1) Divisional Cyclist Company[1] 2) 2nd Divisional Cyclist Corps[2] 3) Divisional Cyclists 1st, 2nd and 3rd Reinforcing Drafts[3]

We are using them as part of the foundation for our research to add them to this site and to be able to also locate their living family members. These family members can contact any of the project managers, our Facebook group (Canadian Corps Cyclist Battalion Descendants' Reunion), or can send an email ( to connect with other descendants, etc.

We'll add who we currently know and as many as possible along the way, and hope we can get some help from the community as well for our project. Thank you!

Hi Emily!

I see you've been editing some New Netherland Settlers project profiles. Thank you.

You'll need to join the project to make significant changes to profiles, and changing dates is pretty significant on these older profiles.

FindAGrave usually isn't very accurate when it comes to the New Netherland Settlers as the majority of the settlers don't have gravestones. You're welcome to add sources, like the FindAGrave links, but please leave comments on a New Netherland profile if you see something that needs to be changed.

Thank you! Carrie

Hi Emily,

Welcome to WikiTree! The email we just sent has helpful links to get you started.

WikiTree is different than other genealogy websites because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we share ancestors and work together as a BIG collaborative team!

What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree?

When you confirm your email address, you’ll be given an opportunity to volunteer to help document our collective family history. Use the Tags and comments to tell us about your genealogical interests.

When you volunteer, one of our Greeters will confirm your membership. Then you'll be able to add your family to the tree!

We're really glad you're here!
