I first became interested in genealogy through my mother - she often spoke of her grandmother and great-grandmother's families. I was particularly interested when I realized they each married a man with the same uncommon surname, Dygert. (Yes, all has been explained.)

One day my late husband (then fiancé) and I were in a computer store. He was taking forever at what he was looking at, so I was wandering around and came upon one of the early editions of Family Tree Maker. At first I thought, no, I don't really know enough to spend money on software. And besides, where will I find the time? Which is very funny to look back on, now! As I kept waiting for Dan, I kept going back to the FTM box, and finally decided to get it. The rest, as they say, is history!

In addition to genealogy, I love to read, especially mysteries and urban fantasy. Favorite TV shows are Dr. Who, Game of Thrones, Criminal Minds, and Walking Dead (although sometimes, while going "ewww!" during the last of those, I wonder why). And we have quite the little zoo, with horses, miniature donkeys, and llamas.

Hi Nan

Thank you your request concerning the two merges for Samuel Lambert. Because of your efforts and the mention of Sam's father being Lambert (1276), my Lambert relatives will be able to trace their Lambert Ancestors from1854 to 1642 and maybe some day beyond. Keep up your great work! We will all toast your efforts at our next family reunion. Bob

Hi Nan,

It's that time of the year again: check-in time! As England Project Leaders, we like to check in with you every six months or so to see how things are progressing. Back in May, we didn't ask for a response due to the rapid emergence of Covid-19 because we understood that people's lives were changing rapidly. While we are still living in a Covid world, we do need to hear back from you this time around.

First of all, how are you doing? What are you currently working on? Are you happy with the team(s) you're in, or would you like to change things up?

Secondly, we're looking for some feedback on the Google Group and our Discord server. Do you use either or both of these? If you don't use either, why not? Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve participation and collaboration, either generally or for you personally?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Amy, Joan & Lizzie.

Recently you added a reference on the profile of Catherine Liles. This was helpful!! Although I was working on her profile and missed the change at the time I was able to confirm her husbands probable sources and will now update his profile. Again, thank you!

Hi Nan,

On behalf of the England Leaders, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your contributions towards the project in the past six months as a Team Member for Cornwall. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.

Please respond to this message via e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,

You can do what you like with county graphics. Just needed a place to park them for category box. Think it would be nice for all the county categories to have a map image
