Lockhart Name Study This is just new, and I will be working on categorizing Lockhart's by location to hopefully assist in locating familial relationships for others who are interested in this surname.

As a very private person there isn't a lot of information that I share about myself, but here goes.
Graduate of Youngstown State University, Youngstown, Mahoning County, Ohio. Also attended Kent State University, Trumbull Branch, Warren, Trumbull County, Ohio until I transferred to YSU.
Worn many hats professionally, and personally.
Genealogy has been in my blood forever. I've always loved history (BS major in History), and I've just returned to it this past year, 2013, after a thirty year hiatus because of the opportunity of time available. The internet is a wonderful thing, as opposed to the old way of doing a road trip and sifting through microfiche and old books, but I have found that unless you actually see the record (which if I can get an image, I upload it) that you have to really be cautious.
I love Wikitree, after experimenting with a couple of other online programs. Why, you may ask? Because it gives one autonomy over when and where you research, the ability to assist others (which I have a tendency to do to my own detriment :), and to collaborate with others where so many great ideas, that never would have popped into my analytical mind in a million years, and avenues of research, and, and, and......
Additionally, when creating a profile, I try and add as much information as I can which includes siblings of my direct line, their spouses and children, etc. Why? You can not imagine, by doing this, how many lines I have linked up with that had additional information, and lineage that is already done. It is so exciting! And then, when you break through that wall that has been sitting there for thirty years, it is indescribable. I literally, get up and walk away. It takes me thirty minutes to sit back down and actually create the profile, all because of the collaboration of the great people here and the way that Wikitree is set up. Ah, but I ramble.
One last thing though. A huge thank you to all of the participants on Wikitree! I hope that it lasts, as is, but with improvements over time, a long, long time.
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Ancestry DNA.

I am sure it is an accident, but you are listed as fighting in the US Civil War... probably from using a template as an example without the <nowiki></nowiki> tags around it
