Hi, Cousin! One of the things I love most about genealogy is discovering my connections to family members I've never met, and reconnecting with family members I haven't seen for a while.
I also love the opportunity to help expand the global family tree, so every once in a while, as time allows and the mood hits me, I create profiles for notables who haven't yet been connected. The most recent such profile I created was for Octavia Butler. Butler was a fabulous science fiction author. The first African American woman to gain prominence as a science fiction writer, she won multiple Hugo and Nebula awards for her work. She was also a recipient of a McArthur Fellowship, an award that the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation provides as an investment in the work of particularly promising creative people; she was the first science fiction author to receive such an award. All in all, she was an amazing woman. If you think you can help to extend her genealogy, please let me know, so I can add you to the trusted list for her and her ancestors.
Lloyd, Rote, Herrington, Craun, Higgins, Boykin, Ward, Beck
For more, see my Surnames page.
I've been DNA tested, using the autosomal "Family Finder" test from Family Tree DNA (FTDNA). Check the cool DNA tools on WikiTree, or look for me among your matches on FTDNA, GEDmatch, or DNA.land.
I've created a Free Space To-Do list, Pamela Lloyd's To-Do List, using the new To-Do list creator. This was my first Free Space page.
P.S. I'm connected!
Almost all my connections to random people (that is, people with any fame or notoriety) are through my father (Lloyd, Herrington, & Boykin, mostly). I simply haven't got enough information about my mother's family, although I'm working on that. More records are being made available through the internet every day, which is helping.
Check out your connections!

My name is Robert/ Bob Loyd & new to genealogy .
I am researching the Lloyd (Loyd) line of my family. Especially Timothy Lloyd (Loyd) senior (abt 1690-1774 lived in Monmouth, NJ) . Need info on Timothy Lloyd senior: birth, youth, father, mother, brothers, sisters, & extended family.
My line goes goes through/appears to go through Timothy senior, Timothy junior, John, Thomas, Nicholas, James A, Jacob B, Silas, Perry A, and Earl Lavon (father).
I have taken my DNA tests and awaiting results. Will share when available (Feb). I will join the Lloyd Project. I am willing to share any information that I have and to contact others doing similar research.
My other three lines go through the Mayflower.

I would be thrilled to be their profiles managers. But I would also be happy with being put on the Trusted list. I have Mildred Loving's father, but it will not let me attach him to her because of the project protection.

Thank you for the invitation to join the Lloyd One Name Study with adding Thomas. I must admit that I am wondering how my ancestor, Gwenillian Thomas, could be his daughter. That is what the records show on Ancestry.com. Sandra

If you have not done so, set your Followed preferences to include DNA.
It's not hard to add DNA test information to profiles on WikiTree, just make sure you add the tests to the actual test participant's profile & set the Privacy to ‘private w/ public biography & family tree’ to show the tester's part of our tree. For help see How to DNA on WikiTree
We also encourage you to join our Google+ Community for DNA discussions, questions & new information.
