I was born and raised in California. My parents both came from Ohio, my father's family brought him to California when he was 3 and my mother moved to California as a young career woman during World War II.
My interest in genealogy started with some family dead ends and lots of rumors. Most of the rumors were great leads, but untrue. And the dead end is in the Becker family (my mother's family). We can go back to her great grandfather John J. Becker.... he was killed in an accident when his son, John Frederick (her grandfather) was 2 and the mother, Mary, either died shortly before or after along with another son, George. I found a beautiful grave marker with all the names and dates. None of this information was ever passed along in the family, so we have no idea where John Frederick grew up, nor where his parents came from, etc....my original dead end is still the one have not been able to break through. I hope with my work in Wikitree, I will eventually find my answers.
Then there are my Patriots...Isaac Lee is my NSDAR Patriot Ancestor. My next challenges are proving my connections to:
My mother's maternal line, part of another brickwall. It appears that they may have been Wallis from France
Robin Lee's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Robin or other
carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA.
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test HVR1 and HVR2, haplogroup V2b, Mitosearch 3CE78, FTDNA kit #604374
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Robin:

Hello! I finished editing my contibutions from 1500-1700. I could not work with some that had their range of dates revised (some fallen into pre-1500). If I pass the first thing will be reformat those according the recommended wikitree style . I am aware that if I do not work well the badge could be taken anytime. Thanks.
Hi Robin, sorry to be a pain but I cannot seem toget the right person connected to my family because, of a project protected person, went to the G2G and did not see anything that helped. I have Connected the wrong parents and cannot change them?
Robin, I believe that when Noah was first created he was not considered a duplicate because McManus-151 showed the middle initial W which has no documentation at all. Mr. Speed who originally did the "second" one seems to have gone inactive as has Vickix. I am McManus researcher and would like to adopt this profile and clean it up. I have a good deal of information on this family but as a newbie let myself get overloaded at the beginning. Still working on cleaning up and catching up. The wife has no sources either. Might I adopt or be a trusted manager so that I can improve it after it is merged? Thank you, Barbara Roesch (Breece-42)
