A New Hampshire native, I was born and raised on the West Side of Manchester. I moved away for a time during my college years, first attending and graduating from University of Rochester with a Bachelor of Arts in Financial Economics and Political Science. I then attended the McCombs Schools of Business at The University of Texas at Austin, where I earned a Master in Professional Accounting degree. I am currently a licensed Certified Public Accountant and work in the accounting/finance sector.
I've had an interest in my family tree for many years. My family had constructed a rudimentary tree when I was young that included most of my great-great grandparents. I began researching more earnestly in June 2015, shortly after my grandmother, Irene (Labrecque) Cuvellier, passed away.
A review of my ancestors during the past several centuries demonstrates that most of my direct ancestors were commoners. One has to go back to the 17th century in order to find nobility among my direct ancestors, and further still to the 13th century to find purported royal ancestors. Results from Y chromosomal testing confirm my lineage genetically along the direct paternal line going back to the early 17th century.
The table below provides information on my progress in identifying my direct ancestors. The oldest generation comprising a full set of my direct ancestors is my 4th great-grandparents, which I completed in May 2017.

I also have been blocked from viewing the orphaned profiles lists, but I don't really care about that, as long as I can adopt or propose merges on individual profiles which are more meaningful to me.

I would welcome a pointer to an official wikitree method for citing references such as this. A URL obtained under a paid membership will not work unless logged into a paid-up account. With an unpaid membership you get only the VR of the marriage which is quoted already. If you paste the string I placed in the references into a search engine, you get several more complete descriptions of the well-known Mayflower society references, but nothing specific for this profile. Your criticism would apply more strongly to other profiles which require paying a fee to see the source. Quoting a URL requiring payment isn't much better than the multitude of profiles containing dead URL links which only rarely get an unsourced tag added. Is there is a wikitree policy supporting toll sources?

I copied the message I sent her back now when I saw she removed me from the project.
"Susie, I replied back! And I replied that I would like to continue to be in the project. In the Source-A-Thon I sourced Canadian profiles. I will copy this message now also to Greg. I want to stay in the project!"
Thanks for solving that Jelena

Did you remove yourself from G. Simenon's trusted list? I can't remember having done such a thing (if I did, it was an error). I have set the profile to Public. He was a notable, after all. Isabelle
