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.

It wasn't that the projects were added, it was that we had been removed with no discussion ...
Thanks for asking.

many thanks for removing the match. As I was unaware that the person had even proposed a match (2 yrs ago!-sorry!) I looked at the intended profile just now and could see no information on it due to the privacy level. So I would not have been able to compare the 2 profiles. Kindest regards, Annemaria

Just wondering if you know why I/We would be removed as PM's and "replaced" with Magna Carta &/or EuroAristo Project's? ie: FitzGerold-13 and several other of the FitzGerold line, Many of which I created in an ongoing effort to complete these lines. I've seen these projects "added" as PM's in the past, but don't understand being removed from same, especially with no discussion or conversation whatsoever.
Thanks for any help you may be able to suggest.

I tried to join WikiTree's Pre-1500 Volunteers group, and the reply was ,,, "You are using a different account than the intended recipient of the invitation. Please sign in to the correct account."
I don't use my google email address. I use my WikiTree email address, and would like to continue using it for this group.
I am also in the Magna Carta google group account and get their emails fine.
Thank you Eowyn, appreciate all you do for WikiTree!

I was wondering if you could provide any assistance on this question?
I asked one of the greeters who sent me your way.

Yes, I have received personal threats of physical harm. They appeared in my mailbox from a member. Considering the geographic distant and considering how it might impact the status of my account until it is resolved in the interim, I prefer to do nothing at this time since I have Wikitree affairs that need to be attended to. In addition to Brinsley, Robin Lee has got me working with some Teague folks. I am trying to get some new info out of an Archive and a few other incidentals. I am more than willing to wait for Paula to return and give her good guidance. Thank you for your concern.
