Dear WikiTree friends: I am about a month behind on answering emails. For every email I answer, another 5 pour in. I am trying very hard to keep up with email requests while clearing old project tasks in order to work on the new--while at the same time prepping my team for the Source-A-Thon. If you have not heard from me, I am not ignoring you! Feel free to message me twice if you feel I have not responded in a timely manner. Thank you for your understanding. (September 18, 2017)
I am a professional genealogist and author. I have been researching my own family since I was 12 years old, long before the presence of the internet (if that doesn't date me, I don't know what would!). Most recently I have caught the DNA bug and am currently learning all I can in the area of genetic genealogy. I love the fact that my family tree has a deeper meaning as I meet new DNA cousins and place them in my tree.
Although a native of northern California who has lived in a few other places, I now live with my two awesome sons in the Seattle area of Washington. What do I do in my spare time? More genealogy and writing--or I read a little and spend time with friends and family.
I can't keep track anymore so here is my list :-)
Digital Afterlife Instructions : this is my permission that upon my demise, for my family firstly, then secondly, the Wikitree staff, to manage the profiles where I act as PM and One Name Studies in any way they see fit, as long as this is in line with the Honour Code and preserves the privacy of living people.

Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Family Tree DNA.

Thanks for all of your work on the Data Doctors project. As with so many things in life, no good deed goes unpunished (per recent G2G rants...I mean discussions).

If you go to my "family tree" 'Scheepers-407' and then to my wife's Adriaantje 'family tree and tools' on father's side to the first 2 members, you will find that:- the second profile that of an Maartens (de Velde Harsenhorst) de Velde Haersenhorst was originaly the same as the 1st profile witch was a error from my side. I then try to 'Merge' them but my system hang up on me witch resulted in a reboot. When I try to 'merge' again it would not, something to do with 'dates', I then try to delete the 1st profile witch I added last by deleting everything on that profile of wich you see the results. For the life of me, I can not see why I can not just wipe a wrong profile on "MY" tree while I can see "I" am busy making a mistake, and then even as "WikiTree" telling me under a big red banner that a father can not be born within so many years of his son' I can not delete or cancel the wrong profile. WHY NOT ??? a wrong profile is wrong, and is no help to anybody, it can only led to confusion ! About a month later I found my great-grand father on the Schoeman side of my mother's family, and as I try to add his profile I found the 2 de Velde Harsenhorst (right name) entries there, I was so disgusted that I closed my page and did not open it till I found that my Email is cluttered with about 40 unopened messages from "WikiTree" I see that Emma MacBeat has already deleted the wrong entries on the Schoeman line. I thank you and her for seeing my problem and rectify it for me. Callie.
