Hi! I’m Eowyn, the WikiTree Forest Elf.

I have a few different responsibilities here. As my job description says:

"Calling her a Forest Elf enables us to be vague about her responsibilities. This is important because she does so ... darn ... much ... including an overall responsibility to make sure that things that need to get done by the team get done. If we wanted to be more professional-sounding we could call her a team manager or general manager.

We've stopped trying to track everything she does. It's a fool's errand for a mortal."

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.

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, 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

Hi Eowyn

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.?

Hi Mary! There isn't a separate badge for 9-11. She would just get the Disasters badge. Thanks!
Hi, I donated a prize of some digital pics for the source a thon. I’m still hoping to do them but my computer kinda fried out on me. I still plan on doing them because I’m getting one, as soon as I find one that my kid aproves of. (Computer guy) I just wanted to let you know that there may be a slim chance that they will get them a little late
Hello. I'm a new member who has been working on my tree through the Ancestry.com site with occasional dips into other sources. I just tried to upload my GEDCOM file but it was rejected because it was too large (37.3 MB) and contains 48,442 people at present and it isn't done yet. What is file size limit and is there any way for me to post it to WikiTree?

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.

Hi Eowyn,

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

posted by Jill Perry
Hi Jill!

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!

Hi Eowyn (grin),

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.

Have fun!

Hello: I just need help, a friend put my information into WikiTree last July. I didn’t realize that and she has totally forgotten, so no password. I just found out when I tried to get started with the name “Totton “ and she comes up as site manager. I then tried another name “Craig” and I am the only one . I am on Familysearch , Ancestry and My Heritage. Is there a way to bring over to WikiTree. I see my cousins son had a lot on WikiTree. I am in my 70’s and not very good at this. Thank you very much.

Eowyn - about them Mormons -- we need another classification. How about a sub-project for LDS pioneers who converted to Mormonism in Europe and Wales, and immigrated to Utah Territory. Many immigrants came from England and Wales by ship. The LDS project box triggers an error, and they are too late for LDS Pioneers or Mormon Battalion.

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?

Eowyn, I know you lead the Holocaust project and wondered if you are familiar with the twitter account of the Auschwitz Museum: https://twitter.com/AuschwitzMuseum -- They of course also have a website in both Polish and English: http://auschwitz.org/en/ The Twitter account is fascinating because it provides several brief bios every day with pictures and usually birth and death dates. I wonder if it could be used as a resource for those working on Holocaust profiles. Thank you for all you do on WikiTree!
Hi, Eowyn,

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!

Regards, Amy Utting

Hi, Eowyn, checking in on the 5 star profiles. The Acadian project has completed their edits on all 367 profiles we had. One is cleaned but pending a final review on some Metis questions. We are going back to the edits on our PPP profies now.

Wow!! That's awesome! Great work as a project.
I hate to be a bother Eowyn, but I just noticed that the 2019 Source-a-Thon badge had oddly disappeared from my profile. I was registered as #369 with the MID-ATLANTIC team.

I've never seen a Badge dissappear before and am hoping you could place it back in.

Thank you very much for your time and understanding with this. :-)

An older G2G thread suggested that you were the person to contact regarding missing monthly contribution badges. My name is on the November 100 list, but I don't have the badge on my page. I know it's not much (and not what I used to do) but I'd still like to see it there :) Could you (or someone else) fix it for me, please?


Hey hun,

I am wondering if you can remove my religion project badge for now. I am still fighting personal life stuff and just am not getting to things like I really should. I plan to get back to it later but think it best to be off of it for now.

Thanks, Lisa

Thanks Eowyn for your speedy reply. You've even answered before I deleted the message LOL. It appears to have been my browser that caused the problem. A quick switch from IE to Firefox solved it for me. Thanks again.

Thanks, Eowyn, for mentioning the Belgium project in last week's news post!

Hi Eowyn!

Project Belgium is really taking off, with about 30 enthousiastic members waiting for your input on how to continue from here! Whenever you have time to have a look at the messages I've been sending you about this (last one an email 2 days ago), could you let us know something?

Thanks a lot! Filip

Hello, Eowyn.

I found an old G2G post about obtaining a Society Member badge, and commented on it. https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/281835/would-you-like-a-society-member-badge I'm wondering if the badge is still available.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Eowyn,

Just following up on the (personal) message that I've sent you recently, about starting a "Belgium" sub-project: I've now updated the free-space project page (see link). It's still work in progress, but it should give you a better idea on what the project would be about. It also includes a list of people that were or are interested in joining such a project.


Best regards, Filip
