I oversee a lot of the day to day operations of the site so you will see me pop up often in google groups, G2G and on our social media sites.
Please message me! I love hearing from members, even if it is just so you can tell me that you and I are 16th cousins 2x removed. :)

Hi! I’m Eowyn, the WikiTree Forest Elf.
I have a few different responsibilities here but generally speaking I oversee the day to day community operations of WikiTree.
I was born in Espanola, Rio Arriba, New Mexico. My biological parents are Carlos Ramos and Laura Kim Thacker. I was adopted on 16 May 1978 through LDS Family Services by Dever Langholf, Jr and Joan (Richards)Langholf.
NOTE: I have had my DNA tested but it is not linked to this profile because I'm linked to my adopted parents, not my biological parents. My GEDmatch ID is M075449 and my haplogroup is J1. You can see my biological profile here.
Contrary to popular belief, I do have hobbies and interests outside of genealogy but most of them tie into it in some way, like history, road-tripping, cemetery hopping, anything military related. I do love making new friends and getting to know people so don't be shy.
Through family history we discover the most beautiful tree in the forest of creation—our family tree. ~J. Richard Clarke

I am a member of the Kiwi Crew and would like to join the New Zealand Project. There is no New Zealand Project Welcome in the G2G feed.
Nga mihi nui kia koe
I'm excited you want to join the New Zealand project. We've just appointed Fiona McMichael as a project coordinator to help with membership. I've asked her to help get you set up!
Thanks, Margaret, Categorization Project volunteer.

Jake is back!
I tried to recategorize the existing Lakota categories so that they are part of the project, listed here: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Lakota_Tribe_Project
I hope it's helpful :)
I sent you a personal message recently but have not heard from you. Can you please tell me if you have read my original message? I would like to add the Genealogist Society member badge to my profile. Details of which societies I belong to is in the original message. Thank you.
Could you look at this question in G2G and tell us if the categories were set up only for Jewish victims or do they apply to anybody incarcerated in the various camps? Thanks.

Thank you for all you do on WikiTree. Here is what we're doing in the Profile Improvement Project. You're welcome to join us if you've got extra time.
The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing its first annual check-in with our project members. Please review the following and let us know if you are content where we have placed you or would like to be more involved.
We are in the process of transitioning to a team structure. There will be three participant PIP Teams to start -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. There is also the Voyage Team which guides new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team.
You're currently identified as a member of the Biography Team Level 1, working on profiles from your own watchlist and whatever else you find. Biography Teams Levels 2 and 3 will work on designated profiles for notables (Level 3) and everyday people (Level 2). Please let us know if you would like to help with a higher-level Bio Team or one of the other Teams.
You joined the Project before the Voyage started in late 2018. We would like to invite you to consider a "fast track" Voyage, especially if you would like to work at a higher level on the Biography Team. If you’re interested, choose a profile from your own watchlist that you have completed to the best of your ability and compare it to the Voyage Biography Standards. If your profile is at Level 2 or better, include a link to the profile in your response to this check-in for a “fast track” review.
We would also like to invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. If you request to join our GoogleGroup, please be sure to include your Wiki ID. Neither is required; we also use the Profile_Improvement tag in G2G for Project announcements.
We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project and WikiTree. The Project’s mission is to:
We know you’re working on profiles *smile* We would like to hear about successes you’ve had toward the Project’s goals. We would also appreciate any feedback you might have to help us improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or privately via private message to either of us.

Sincerely, Jen Hutton, on behalf of the Ireland Project
Claudia (Collette) Scarbrough and Eowyn (Langholf) Walker are both descendants of William Clarke (1477-).
And we are 20 degrees apart as your family goes into my Thomas Lindley line who were Quakers.
I sure do like WikiTree and am so appreciative of your many dazzling contributions.

Would love to see a Project for the Salem Witch Trials. What do you think?
I am fairly new to WikiTree but a long time researcher/genealogist. Glad to be here!
Like all WikiTree projects we check in with team members twice per year and it's that time again. Please respond within the next two weeks to let me know:
If you'd like to tell me about a particular project or family you're working on, I'd love to hear about that as well.
Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. I look forward to hearing from you.

Someone has done an unmerged match with Evans-10932 Any ideas today on this. Maybe complete that merge?
I have more info (siblings, wife, children); would I still be able to work on the profile after it is project-protected? If so, and if the profile meets the requirements of the project, please make it a project-protected profile. If not, I will build out the main connections and then ask for project protection.
1st attempt - not actively working on: Faculty and Students 1919 Wyoming (PA) Seminary
2nd attempt- working from this one: Faculty and Students 1919 Wyoming (PA) Seminary-1
Could you please put the flag on the 2nd one?
As you know, the Volga German Project will now operate as a Team under the Germany Project. To continue your participation in the Volga German Team, you'll need to join the Germany Project. Can I add you as a member of the Germany Project? I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Has anyone thought about using MtDna on Native American? My mothers line if correct ends in Red Paint Clan Cherokee I can trace her MT no further back. My mt dna haplogroup includes Native American so that should be correct, wondering if there others who trace their MTdna to red paint clan? As I understand it has to be mothers mothers mothers etc. at first, I thought it was all females on mothers side but only mothers mother etc. We may be 12th cousins through Thomas Marshall. Thank you, Sherry

How fun that we might be 12th cousins! I saw your last name of Holston and thought we might be connected somewhere.
You might try bringing the mtDNA idea up in G2G. I'd be curious to see what the response is.
Eowyn (Ramos) Langholf and Patty (Luker) LaPlante are both descendants of William Thacker. (8th cousins)
The Switzerland Project has been dormant for some time now. I would like to resurrect the project if possible. I have been involved in Family History for over 30 years but have been on WikiTree for just over a month. Do you think it would be too early for me to lead a project on WikiTree?
Missing quite a few requirements :), but I would like to take on a Team Leader role; my main research interest is the Werdenberg constituency in the canton of St. Gallen. This would fit in well with a regional project structure. In particular, I am interested in the stories of local Swiss mercenaries, the emigration of Werdenberg inhabitants to other parts of the world as well as the unique embroidery industry of the region.
Thank you for your support.
A member contacted me wanting to work on the 9/11 Project. Name- https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Cox-27529 I contacted Joan Whitaker of Disasters for her badge. I have 9/11 under Disasters, explosions team. Was there a badge for 9/11? . I created tables for her on the Planes of 9/11 space page.
Need your feedback, as your name is still listed on the project as well as Steve Harris.?
Not only would I love to get cross references, but I have straightened out a lot of conflicting info such as the 2 Joan Beauforts married to the 2 James Stewarts that so many people confuse. I also know that there are a bunch of bogus people that I'd like to weed out which was how I came to you through the Disproven Existence project.

Was there a new 52 ancestors in 52 weeks badge for 2019? I had participated in 2018 and received the badge the end of that year. I also participated in 2019 had sent a message the end of the year stating I had done all 52 weeks, but just realized I didn't appear to have a badge for 2019. Thanks for all you do! ]ill
There is only one 52 in 52 Ancestors badge. Since you already received it, I can't award it again but you can use the sticker on your profile to say which years you've been able to do 52 in 52 for. Thanks!
Thank you for adding your DNA Test to your profile on WikiTree. Getting Started with DNA will tell you more about how DNA kits are used on WikiTree.
DNA at WikiTree provides a visual way for you to find others who have tested and have the potential of having common ancestors. It normally takes 24 hours from adding a test, or adding a new ancestor, or ancestor’s descendant, for WikiTree to display your name and test results on your ancestors and their descendants’ profiles for potential cousins to compare results with.

My buddy, Rees-1201, contributed beautiful profiles and lots of the have the 931 error. I think they need more than just the LDS sticker.
What say you?

I don't know if I'm doing something wrong. I commented and answered on this post: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/969955/are-you-participating-the-2020-ancestors-photos-challenges?start=40#a_list_title but I haven't received the 52 Ancestors participation badge. Can you please tell me what I need to do? Thank you, Auriette
As one of the co-leaders of the European Aristocrats project, I'm messaging to inform you that we are removing the "House Assignments" from our project structure. You are absolutely still welcome to work on the profiles from the families that you chose, we are simply removing the official House Assignments as, for the most part, people choose to work on whichever profiles interest them. We're glad to have you in the project and we hope that you continue to work with us!
