Eowyn Langholf was adopted.
Adopted Father: Dever Langholf
Adopted Mother: Joan Langholf
Agency: LDS Family Services
Date: 16 May 1978
Location: Albuquerque/Espanola, New Mexico
Biological Father: Carlos Ramos
Biological Mother: Laura Kim Thacker

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

Thank you for the badge, Eowyn. I didn't do much though, I kind of got lost in what I was doing. I also didn't quite understand how to answer back about the teams so I'm not even sure which team I ended up on because two people said I was on their team.

Such a beautiful thing...a boat with your name! Eowyn! It's a GREAT name! Meaning the joy of horses. My grandfather raced horses back in the 40's in Southern California. His favorite was named 'Joy's Delight'! He could have easily just called her 'Eowyn'! Scott

sorry for my very, very belated answer! I just forgot about looking into wikitree for the last 4 years :-S To answer your question (from 2014): No, I've never been to New Mexico nor other places in the "New World" at all. My furthest voyages were all still in the borders of Europe. Hope that helps and have a great new year 2019! :-)

Best regards Kai

P.S. Will be trying to look more often into wikitree this year :-)

Hi Eowyn, (love Vincent btw)

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,


Leader, Global Cemeteries
