Notes to visitors

If you ended up here from a

  1. profile I manage, let's talk about people!
  2. Greeter or Messenger comment/email, Welcome to WikiTree again! *grin*
  3. Thank You notice, it may be because you explained a change you made to a profile. I love seeing those!

I started gathering names, dates, and places around 1982 as a way to deal with the grief of a child's death. "Serious" genealogy research began in the early 1990s when the internet and computers introduced me to research partners who taught better habits and shared resources. A ten year break from 2005-2015 was full of other fun things but I found that I missed the joys and challenges of research.

I came back to genealogy only to discover that two of my mentors / research collaborators had died. One's research is in the possession of an interested but non-active descendant and not accessible; the whereabouts of the other's research is unknown. I needed a place to share, collaborate, learn, and assure that my research would never suffer such a fate. I went looking and found WikiTree.

When I joined and uploaded my (*sigh* too large) GEDCOM, it became obvious that a "Genealogy Do-Over"[1] was in order. All records are being reviewed; profiles and source citations are being updated. Things have changed but ... the more they change, the more they stay the same; there are always more questions than answers.

Biography[2]

Debi was born in Jacksonville, FL, just as her father, Charles McGee, returned to military service with the United States Air Force (USAF). As soon as her mother, Rachel Helms McGee, was released by the physician, the family moved to McDill Air Force Base in Tampa FL where her father was stationed. The USAF played a large role in Debi's growing years, sending her family to live all over the world including places like Denver Colorado, Japan, southern California, Germany, England, Okinawa, and finally back to Florida in 1973.

Finishing High School in 1976, Debi went to work for a local governmental agency where she had positions in the Finance and IT departments. She retired in 2007, having completed 30 years service. She has been married twice, first to Ray Cundiff, and currently to Daniel Hoag. These days she is busy with a small bookkeeping business, a local genealogical society, and WikiTree. She's still working on that *sigh* too large GEDCOM and has recently started working with another one because, obviously, she has lost her mind.

She's also planning for a future that will include extended research trips with a mobile work-space and a small camper.

Wiki-Will for Digital Afterlife

In the event of my death or incapacity for more than 90 days, the following shall serve as my unspoken permission:

  • I would like all of the profiles for people not living, and which I alone manage, to be changed to Open. This is up to and including my own profile.
  • Space pages which I have created for projects should be assigned to the leaders of those projects
  • Other space pages can all be changed to Open with the exception of the DAM_Collection.
  • If I missed anything (and for the DAM Collection space page and any Red/still living profiles on my Watchlist), I ask that they be managed in keeping with the Honor Code and preserving the privacy of living people:
    • by any of my extended family members (including my former spouse and his family), whether or not they are on the Trusted Lists.
    • Should these profiles / pages not be accessed within 180 days from my demise, the Wikitree staff shall have full and total access to manage said space and profiles in any way they see fit, up to and including assigning them to any willing Profile Manger, orphaning them, or deleting them.

Thank you for reaching out to me Debi. I am finding my way around. Some things take longer to understand than others. I am not sure if I am doing sources right, but at the moment if I can get down what info I have, I can edit things down the line.

It is a bit scary because most of my people don’t have any connections yet. So it is like sending the information into the ether and hoping it lands in a place in such a way to connect or be useful in the future! Thanks again. Sandy

Hi there, Debi, Greeter par ex!

H Debi: Since you were one of the greeters upon my initial joining, I will ask a question I have...

I have created a profile for my mother, using just her initials. Since she is living and not a member, it had to be Private. I have a profile for her at 23andme, and since her profile here at Wikitree is private, the link I shared at 23andme to her Dynamic Tree here can't be accessed by the public. ...How can I most easily make her a limited member here--I think I read it is called a Family Member level account--so that the public can view her tree? ...She is not interested in participating, but is okay with me using her profile in a limited capacity. It's really about access to the ancestral tree that I am interested in.

Thanks. K Longinetti

Hi K,

You mother will need to at least be willing to accept the invitation to WikiTree. She can immediately make you the profile manager of her profile. We have a FAQ which explains how to get that all done:

Hi Debi,

My grandparents on my mother's side were both born in Sweden and came to America as youngsters with their respective parents. I have a fairly comprehensive understanding of my family tree on my father's side going back to the 1600s in the Massachusetts colonies. However, on my mother's side I find it more difficult to go back very far because of the way the Swedish names change from generation to generation. Do you have any suggestions on where I could learn more about the conventions used in Sweden when a name is given to a child ? (for instance, when CARL Swenson had a child, his son was named Axel CARLSON. And when Axel Carlson had a son he became Olaf Axelson) Also to add to the confusion if the child was a female, her last name ended with dotter ???? Don Prouty

posted by Donald Prouty
Hi Donald,

The Sweden Project has a resource page set up to explain aspects of Swedish names. I would start there.

If it doesn't answer your questions, probably the best way to find more information is in the G2G forum. There you could create a new post to introduce yourself and ask for help. Down at the bottom where it says "Surnames and project tags," add the tag like Sweden and Mentor to get the attention of others who share the same interests.

See you in the branches,

posted by Gail (Rochette) Keefe
Thanks for your note. The link that I included in your welcome message provides some tips on how to get started but you may already be beyond what is provided.

I took a look at the profiles you are managing and you've made a great start adding profiles. The locations are really appreciated because it makes collaboration so much easier. The next step would be to add some information about the sources you have gathered during your research. Our Sources FAQ has some examples of the kind of information that is needed. If the source that you used isn't covered, let me know and we'll work together on it.

To upload pictures, you'll want to be on the profile of a person who is in it. Then click the Images tab at the top and follow the instructions on the page. Most questions that we have been asked about how to do things with pictures have been answered in the Photos FAQ. I'll be here to help in case your question hadn't been asked before or the answer doesn't make sense.

Thank you, Debi, for the latest info about not using "unlisted". I was feeling a bit overwhelmed as a newbie and not knowing what I was doing, so thought that would be a "safe" choice for me. Also, thank you so much for the other links that should help me on my way to figure all of this out. I've used Ancestry a bit, however, I will have to get used to this format and way of doing things. I would like to transfer some of my info to this tree, however, I may have gotten to carried away and branched out to not very close relations. I'm not sure I will include all of them as it tends to get very confusing to me. Thank you again! I appreciate the guidance. ~Sandra

Thanks for your note, Herman,

It's good to have you with us. I hope you are successful in your research and that you find known and unknown cousins on here.

I took a quick look at the profiles you have created. The first thing I suggest is include some kind of location information for the births, deaths, and marriages. Even the suspected country can help sort things out. There are status buttons under the location fields that you can set so that other WikiGenealogists will know how certain you are about the information.

We have a research tool that makes finding reliable sources easier. I use it all the time and it helps me remember different places to check. To give it a try, go to the Family Tree & Tools tab; select Genealogy Research, scroll down near the bottom of that list, and select Research with RootsSearch (use your WikiTree email & password). There are over 20 websites to access from there. You can read more about the tool in the RootsSearch FAQ. I used the tool to find a marriage record for your Martin/Borden grandparents. Take a look at your grandmother Borden's profile for an example of what I was suggesting for the locations.

Anytime you need help, please let me know by replying to this comment using the link. You can also reply to the comment I left on your profile or send a private message from my profile page.

Probably not cousins. The Hoag family that I research was actually Hogg until about 1912. They were in Ontario and immigrated in to New York. The 1912 New Jersey birth record of my husband's grandfather is the first document we have which includes the name spelled Hoag.

Would you be able to explain to me how to do the Gedcom clean up? Would you be able to explain to me how to tell if a record is right before attaching the source to someone?

Also I don't understand how to do the adoptee profile stuff, could you explain that to me?

How do you add information to a post by a member?
posted by Rebecca (Crowder) Cole
Hi Rebecca,

I'm not sure I understand exactly what you are asking, so I'm going to respond with several things. If one of them doesn't answer your question, please give me a little more detail and I'll try again.

1. If the post by a member is in a comment at the foot of a profile, click the "reply" link below the comment. That will open a box where you can add information.

2. If the post is in the biography portion of a profile, check the upper right corner to see if it is has Open privacy (white lock). If so, click the Edit tab and add your information in the edit box. If the additional information is significantly different, it is recommended to communicate with the any interested parties (last contributor and/or the profile manager(s)). You can read more about that in the Communication before Editing FAQ.

3. If the profile in question does not have Open Privacy (white lock), scroll to the foot of the profile and add a comment. Anyone on the Trusted List of the profile will be alerted and can respond.

4. If the post is in the G2G Forum, click the "comment" or "answer" link below the post.

I hope one of these answers your question. As I said, if I missed the mark, please let me know.

Hi Debi,

Thanks so much for all the help. I’ve found this page and you are a very interesting person! I, too, graduated H.S. in1976. Was your Dad in Nam? Just curious. If you’d ever like to visit New Orleans, let me know. I live on my farm south of Baton Rouge, but bought a “camp” there after Katrina. I hope you kept access to my e-mail. You were really helpful to me and I greatly appreciate it. Best, Juliette

Thanks, Juliette. My Dad was in Thailand at an Air Force base that supported the jets that flew in to Nam. I'll keep that invitation in mind as I love to travel and have been through that area many times. Louisiana Renaissance Faire in Hammond is on my agenda for next fall so, who knows, maybe we can have a meal together. I have kept your email address. Pop me a comment or private message any time you have questions. Debi
