Dr. Moore has been working on family genealogy since 1979, back when you had to go to the National Archives in Washington, D.C. in person to research census and military pension records. He is adept at using a microfiche reader and pencil and paper. Since about 2003, he has been using wiki's both professionally and as a hobby.
Please e-mail me if you are interested in collaborations. I only include information that comes from authoritative and accurate sources and information that comes from close family members that can be verified in public records. I do not include information about living people in WikiTree.
G. Moore's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with G. or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA.
Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
Family Tree DNA Y-DNA Test 67 markers, haplogroup R-M269, Ysearch 53WKC, FTDNA kit #643448
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test HVR1 and HVR2, haplogroup H, FTDNA kit #643448
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with G.:
I appreciate your effort to correct the entry for Marquis (Marcus) de LaFayette Erwin. Marcus Erwin's grave marker indicates he was the son of William W Erwin of Burke Co., NC. I'm not aware of any other William W Ewin's living in Burke County North Carolina during this time frame.
Hi Garry. I sent a reply to your email regarding Union Lutheran Church in Rowan, NC. I was just looking over your profile page, and I love the links and the way you have things formatted, as well as the Digital Afterlife section. I have not seen that on anyone's profile before, but would love to include it on my own, if you have no objections.
I am always bouncing between multiple Word docs, my Ancestry trees and other documents, etc., and noticed you had your templates and such listed on your profile page. How handy! Why have I not thought of that...
Please let me know what assistance I can be for Union under the One Name Studies.
Hi, thank you for pointing that out. I certainly strive to transcribe information accurately, but we are all human. The profile is open so that changes and additions can be made or so errors may be corrected. Please feel free to improve his profile and biography. Much appreciated. It's great that WikiTree is collaborative. Hope you have a nice day.
Hi Dr Moore ! I just wanted to say "Congratulations" on becoming one of the newest Blue Badged "Generous Genealogist", Your dedication to those ancestors who served in the military has been noticed and appreciated by others. Also thank you for your service as well!!
There's no proof that I'm aware of that Randol, Randall, Randolph Shoemaker was related to Tarlton or John. However, he is listed in some family files as a son of John, Jr.(Born 1757 Died 1844). Married to Margaret Peggy Locke in 1784 in Iredell County, NC.
Randolph is listed on a Revolutionary Veteran pension list in 1830 as being a private in the NC Militia.
