I rarely do pre-1850 research. If you need research help, g2g is the best place to ask. Members from all over the world are ready to help you.
I create a lot of Black heritage profiles in order to grow the Tree. If I manage one of your family member profiles, I would love to add you as the profile manager. Please ask.
I agree with genealogist Donya Williams who says genealogy can heal the world.
Due to the large amount of messages I receive, it could take me a week to answer comments and private messages. I also answer messages for different projects on different days. If you need an immediate reply, please put "Urgent" in the subject line of a private message. If you feel I forgot about you, I am never offended by a second message. Emails sometimes go astray. I don't answer emails on Sundays and Thursdays.
I am a genetic genealogist who finds birth parents for those who are searching and connects enslaved ancestors to their descendants. My goal is to reconnect all 10+ million enslaved ancestors. I am also a Young Adult and Middle Grade fiction author. I have been researching my own family since I was 12 years old, long before the presence of the internet, but really fell in love when DNA testing became an everyday thing. You can find me at Emmaline Rose Books and Missing Link DNA. I write under the pen name Emmaline Rose.
Although a native of northern California who has lived in a few other places, I now live with my two awesome sons in Washington. What do I do in my spare time? More genealogy and writing--or I read a lot and spend time with friends and family.

I'm an ENFP with a D on the DISC which means I'm very creative and extroverted with a drive to get things done! If you know anything about ENFPs, you know we don't like to spend our time dotting our I's and crossing our T's. I use the outside-in method of research. That means I work with clusters of families that I learn about in a general sense so I can find the patterns in their information. This leads me to more sources and correct connections. I then build a bare-bones profile for them at WikiTree (outside) to later be built out with biographies and exact details (in).
Connecting families is my strength because of my ability to find those patterns. I create a great deal of bare-bones profiles because my time is better spent on my strengths. I can research and create 100 profiles in the time it takes me to build one thorough biography! (Not exaggerating). I believe we should all play to our strengths and contribute those strengths to WikiTree. If we all work together in this way, we will have amazing and accurate profiles.
Our time in this world is limited. I want to create as many accurately connected profiles that are free and publicly available for the Black community while I can. The work the USBH Project is doing is long overdue and will serve descendants for generations to come. I'm proud of that.

Digital Afterlife Instructions : this is my permission that upon my death, for my family firstly, then secondly Charlotte Shockey, thirdly the WikiTree staff, to manage the profiles and space pages where I act as PM in any way they see fit, as long as this is in line with the Honour Code and preserves the privacy of living people.
