About Me

I am a Generation Veneration Geek. Researching my family tree started as a hobby, now; it is an obsession. I dedicate my research to the memories of our ancestors, who flow like tributaries into the collective unconsciousness of humanity. I believe that our ancestor, our elders, are our teachers, our taproots to traditions, values, language and history. Researching family history, in my heart, is to respect their legacies, and, to honor their memory; as they are our guides to our future. Through the legacies of our ancestors, we can learn to reconnect our living generations, and our generations to come.
Looking forward to collaborating



Brick Walls

I have been researching my genealogy for several years now, but still have a lot of holes in my tree on my dad's side. Bare bones in terms of information, I have been working at filling in the blanks with my African American Ancestors and lost family branches.

The surnames I am researching on my dad's side are Smith( from Missouri, Tennessee), McLeod & Monroe (Ohio, Georgia, Virginia?), Ewing(Kentucky), Mayfield(Louisiana) and Dahl(Sweden).

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Elisa or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA. Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • Elisa Mayfield: Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test HVR1 and HVR2, haplogroup j1c3a1, FTDNA kit #B8957, MitoYDNA ID T10891 [compare]
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage (beta) of DNA with Elisa:

Hope all is well and want to reach out to you... You may be able to help me with this... https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Hill-40211 I don't have access to Ancestry and I believe any information on Alice would be there!

Elisa we are 10th cousins once removed from Jamaica through Strickland-125, I have no idea how that works, but check it out and see what you think.

Hi David  :-) I will take a look at our connection. Thank you for reaching out.

Good luck with your search prior to 1850 for the African ancestors... If you can verify slave records from the 1850s you may need to take a trip to the last known place of your ancestors... Not sure if you have access to the family BIBLE, or any other Church records maybe the best way to put the whole story together!

I have that same problem... I've been back to 1832 and cannot crack that wall...

As part of a re-vitalization of the WikiTree US Presidents Project we are asking members if they are planning to continue their contributions to the project. We are establishing a page where everyone can identify the President or Vice President that they wish to manage. Just respond to this message to let me know 1) Are you planning to continue with the Project and 2) do you have a specific President or Vice President that you are interested in.

Re:Sorrells, Not a problem. I was looking at his tree at FST and neither WT or FST makes sense at all.

Elisa, so we both have ancestors that came from Virginia; mine by way of Kentucky to Missouri, too.

Did you want to add the parents to the profile of Major John Lee Lee-13847? I posted a message on his profile with the correct father and mother. There was a different John Lee attached to them, but he has been removed.
