I have two graduate degrees, have lived in several states and held several jobs. I have worked at every level of government and taught school, including being an adjunct professor in political science. However, I've been known to drop everything to stay with my sick mother or live near my daughter to help with grandchildren.

I hope that there is such a thing as reincarnation because there are so many wonderful things to do that you just can't do them all in one lifetime.

I like to work on the family genealogy, grow flowers for bees and butterflies and share things with my granddaughters. I enjoy scifi/fantasy novels and historical fiction. Over the years I've enjoyed doing and learning new things via the web and computers. I've been working on Kathryn's Retro Historical Nature Pretty Backgrounds and Hopewell, Virginia, Images.

My GEDMatch

I recently did DNA testing with 23andme. I understand that 23andme has recently changed some testing or reporting protocol, so the typical GEDMatch site will not work to compare my kit. My kit (and others like it created from newer 23andme files) can be compared at genesis.gedmatch.com.

Note from Kathryn

I think of working on a public family tree as a gift to my family, close and far away in both space and time.

And I am grateful for the work of many extended family members and our friends and neighbors who have done such careful research to properly connect us on various other sites, such as ancestry.com and findagrave.com. I appreciate all of you.

I believe that imagining the lives of our ancestors can make us better people in the present time. We have to consider that their lifestyle and choices were different from ours. And then we can more deeply understand that the lifestyle and choices of others in our present time is also different. And maybe we can become more tolerant.

Perhaps we can also learn from things that we believe were good about the past and apply that to our present.

It seems that I am descended from Earls and Barons (and other titles.) Personally, I do not have these kinds of achievements. But, even in times of financial embarrassment or poor health, I believe that I have maintained dignity, integrity, and humor. And that's important. Yes, I believe it is important to be connected by dignity and integrity and humor. And that is what makes a family a family for the ages.

Thanks for the note. I have a hard copy document based on US censuses back to 1790 showing Hollands starting in Virginia and progressing to other states over the generations. If I can ever transcribe that I hope to link to records during the colonial period, maybe even earlier. Can't help but wonder, had the family been in the Virginia for 100 or more years? Were they recent arrivals? No way of knowing as yet.

Kathryn: Thanks for your inquiry. I have several Huguenot lines, but the most likely connection is my ancestor John Pierre Bondurant, of Henrico/Goochland Counties, Virginia. My Barnes family is through William b. Isle of Wight Co., Virginia, died Prince William Co., VA. Their descendants moved to North Carolina, then Tennessee, and finally Indiana. You can see more about that line in my Ancestry.com line under user name: margkerns, and Kepner Family Tree. It is my working file, and has a name index of all the cousins I have entered. I work on making more entries from my computer files, which are easier to move to WikiTree, but have an index to just my family names on Ancestry.com.

Kathryn, Thanks for the message regarding Brunswick County, Virginia. My Stone family is from Brunswick County, Virginia. My Daniels family came from England in 1842 and settled in Washington County Indiana.

Awesome! My mom has a lot of info on our Boyte lineage. Her maternal great grandparents were Boytes. They are from the Springfield, TN, Robertson County, Cheatham County Tennessee locations. You are probably a GEDmatch with her too.


Edit: We also have Morse on a paternal line (Harris) from Pasquotank County, N.C. There is a possibility that is where the shared DNA comes from if it is not the Boytes.
