My great-great-grandmother Emily Burdalow / Bordeleau was 100% French-American. Her ancestors migrated in the 1700s from Québec to the areas in Indiana and Illinois around Vincennes.
Karen Tobo's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Karen or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA.

Susie referred me to you. I have a lot of ancestor profiles of people who came from Spain to the new Spain. Many were GEDCOM transfers to wikitree from a different website, and their profiles appear pretty sketchy. Do you know of a subgroup I could join so that I could collaborate with others when I run into problems with these profiles? Many thanks.
I'm afraid, I dont know anybody who can read "Kurrentschrift" perfectly.
I struggle myself to read it, only when the handwriting is very clear and I am able to do so.
I checked the document and wouldn't have been able to read respectively translate it.
It's a small world, as they say at the Magic Kingdom.
Your family and mine are from DIFFERENT Lowe families, but our paths have often crossed.
I have never met you, except by reputation as an excellent example of a WikiTree professional.
Your late brother Ray Lowe worked at WDW Magic Kingdom, like me, but not at the same time.
He apparently lived within a mile of me in Denver, but we never met.
You and I worked at the same employer years ago, although not at the same time.
I vaguely remember meeting a Lowe about your brother's age who told me his family came from Tennessee, although I cannot recall where or when.
My mother's neighbor, yet another Charles Lowe, may be distantly related to you.
My partner's grandfather came from Alsace, the origin of your Lowe/Lau family.
Because of your expertise, I would like to make you the beneficiary of my WikiTree profiles in the event of my death.
