- Eowyn Langholf's Profile
- Family Tree & Genealogy Tools
Hi! I’m Eowyn, the WikiTree Forest Elf.
I have a few different responsibilities here. I review all the GEDCOMs that are submitted for import. (If you have a GEDCOM-related question please ask!) I also manage the social media for WikiTree and our group of volunteers who help share the WikiTree Love, the Ambassadors.
For fun, I'm a Greeter and a Mentor, and lead a few projects including The Titanic Project, the LDS Pioneers Project, Descendants of Pocahontas and the Integrators. You might also see me popping up often in our G2G Forum.
And I love dead people. I know…weird right? (Well maybe not so weird here on WikiTree, eh? :D )
They fascinate me. I love learning their stories about who they were and where they came from.
For me, every time I find an ancestor it’s like finding a little piece of my own puzzle. I was adopted when I was a baby but about 8 years ago I found my biological mother. I’ve been so blessed to be able to learn about both my biological and adoptive ancestors. It’s helped me understand that I’m a part of something so much bigger and more beautiful than just myself.
I'm happy to assist anyone in their own research in any way I can so feel free to shoot me a message. Besides, I love making new friends.
Through family history we discover the most beautiful tree in the forest of creation—our family tree. ~J. Richard Clarke
I was born 10 May 1978 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.
My father joined the military when I was about 2, making her an Air Force brat. When he left the service 12 years later, I was still a brat. And yeah, even now - still a brat.
I was fortunate to have lived in many places including New Mexico, Utah, Korea, Maryland, England and California. I learned to speak Korean fluently while we lived there, but alas, when we moved to Maryland, there was not much need for a 7 year old to speak the language and now I only remember a few words. Even after she left home at 18, I couldn't stop wandering and have spent time in Arizona, Ohio and Michigan as well.
I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. 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, cemetery hopping, anything military related. I do love making new friends and getting to know people so don't be shy.

I don't know whether she should have an LDS pioneer template. (confused a bit by the criteria) She left England in 1849 arriving in New Orleans, She lived and married in St Louis and then with her husband travelled to Salt Lake city in 1852.
