DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Karen or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA. Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • Karen Lowe: Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test HVR1 and HVR2, haplogroup U5a1a2b, FTDNA kit #248358, MitoYDNA ID T11992 [compare]
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Karen:

Hi Karen,

I saw that line of Whittens you added. Great -- perfect -- profiles (not that I'm surprised, since it's you).

Hi Karen,

I have not yet found anything on this profile. I will continue to work on it and will post anything new on the G2G post and in a message box on the profile for collaboration. Thanks for working to hard on this profile!!!

Hi Karen,

I have not been able to find anything new on the profile you are working on here. During the pandemic, I have had much longer work hours, plus my research partner now been out sick. He is much better at tracking down these old records from unindexed images. We will work on this more but I wanted to let you know I haven’t forgotten about it. You have a great deal of research posted. I can tell you that we solve these mysteries usually by looking at collateral lines. Court documents where the person has been a witness also are helpful. I will keep working on this. I posted this in our requests for help on the SC project page.

Hi Karen, I appreciate any and all additional contributions you can make to honor our ancestors. I have posted many new profiles from the Wurttemberg area of Germany hoping that others will add to them and possibly find a family member. Thank you. Pete.

Hi Karen,

I just approved your proposed merge of Галицкая-1 and Romanovna-3. If/when the other PM approves this we'll need to make sure the mythical given name of 'Maria' doesn't work its way back into this profile.

All the best, Kelsey

Hi Karen

Thank You! for adding to my Hitchman line !

Jo-Anne

You're welcome! I saw them on a line from, hmm, someone to someone (I forgot!) and saw an empty spot in the ancestor chart.

Hi Karen,

Thanks for adding estimated dates for profiles like Goerd Holthausen (abt.1660-).

When you do so, please add a = = Research Notes = = entry explaining the basis for the estimate so we have a record of your thought process.

Good reminder, William! I added a note for Goerd.

Hello Karen,

The Appreciation Team Leaders are completing the six-month check in with all team members. Thank you for all your work thanking and appreciating WikiTree members.

I see you are signed up for: Surnames https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Appreciation_Team:_List_of_Tasks

Please let me know if you are happy with your current task, if you wish to do something additional or different, or if the Appreciation Team is no longer something you can keep up with. Thank you again on behalf of all the Project Leaders for everything you do.

Emma :-)

Hi, Karen.

Just a note to say hello.

I"m rather new to WikiTree (but have worked on my family's genealogy for decades), and was working on my mother's side for a bit today. Looks like we are connecting through the Thompson line. (I linked my great-great-great-grandmother Nancy Duncan Thompson Allen to her first husband Andrew Thompson, which is one of the profiles you've created). (Very interesting to see his father listed as "Clairborn" Harmon Thompson; I only previously had him in my data as Harmon Thompson).

I ran a one-to-one comparison of your GEDmatch kit number against mine and it's showing we have a 17.9 cM match on chromosome 10. Anyway, it's always nice to "meet" a new cousin online!

Take care,

John C. Carter - [email address removed]

why did you remove the proposed match of Sims' 2589 and 3645. They are the same person.

Jim Sims

posted by James Sims
Jim, because they are the same person I wanted us to merge them and not just match them. Thanks!
posted by Karen Lowe
I am somewhat confused. Both words start with a "m" and have five letters and the difference in meaning must be very subtle and that difference eludes me. I agree they should forever be as one.

Hello and Happy New Year!

Thank you for all you've done here. I believe Gimbel-28 is David Gimbel, twin of Peter. David died on 7 Jul 1957 from cancer at the age of 29. Here is an obituary for him:

Hello Karen,

I want to know exactly what adding someone to the "Trusted List" means regarding the following questions:

1) Will they be able to make changes ONLY to the profile I add them under, or does It mean they will be able to change any profile that I am managing for Wikitree?

2) If it means they're only able to manage the profile I've added them under, will they also be able to add any unknown spouses and children, that would be descendants of that profile as well.

To put it into a different (and more personal) perspective: Can I make certain of my relatives co-managers of their own profiles (and of any children they may wish to add), without any concerns of them possibly making changes to other profiles I am managing which aren't even their relatives? "Family badges"?

Laurel Groove Cemetery was in use and Moses and his last wife are buried there but not Rosie Jane Duncan. I have searched other states . Everything about burial takes you to the other Rosa Jane.
posted by [Living Lowe]
I have searched for hours and I can’t find the correct burial information on Rosie Braden Duncan, first wife of Moses Smith Duncan. Ellen Duncan Webb’s mother.
posted by [Living Lowe]
Moses was my great grandfather and his name is Moses Smith Duncan, my information is correct as I grew up with these people and know them and their history well. There was a merge done with Larry Maggart and the connection to Florida may have crossed over with his information. Corrections on his end had to be done before it could merge as he had the wrong names for the parents and only one wife.

Hi Karen, thanks for the welcome! Happy to be on wikitree.

Hi Karen,

I wanted to ask you about naming conventions for Hispanic last names (in my case Mexican). From what I'm seeing in the public comments here https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Spanish_Naming_conventions#LAST_NAME_AT_BIRTH and the small tests I've made so far, the convention breaks the search functionality, e.g. searching for <first name> <paternal last name> only doesn't work right. Is this still the recommended way of adding Hispanic last names in 2019?

This seems like it would be more likely someone won't find my ancestor unless they include both last names just like I entered them. I've found a couple of discussions in G2G but a bit old, so I thought I'd ask to see if this is still the right way to do it.

Thank you!
