DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with LaMyra or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with LaMyra:

Thank you for participating!

Thank you LaMyra for participating in the US Civil War Challenge. You completed 307 profiles during the January Connect-a-Thon. There were 27 of us who signed up for the Challenge, completing 6,480 profiles.

The US Civil War February Challenge will be to create profiles for those soldiers who died during the Battle of Shiloh on the 7th and 8th of April 1862. If you're interested in joining another challenge, check out the US Civil War Challenge Page on February 1st.

Thank you again. Pam

Hi LaMyra, I hope you've been doing well this year. I've posted a new Challenge for the January 13th to 16th Connect-a-Thon. The Challenge is for members to work on US Civil War Soldiers again. If your interested here is a link to the Challenge Page:

Here's the link to the G2G question:

I Hope you'll join the fun.

Thank you for participating!

We had eight+ members who participated in connecting 45 Generals, only three of the Generals still show they didn't connect beyond the 1st level of family. Norman Jones won the first Project Challenge Badge, his choice for the October challenge is connecting more Generals. Thank you again LaMyra for joining the September Challenge, I hope to see you in the October Challenge. Pam Kreutzer, US Civil War Project Leader

Hi LaMyra, you sent the category Category: Saint Paul Evangelical Cemetery, Columbia, Missouri to be renamed, however you haven't set up the new category (see the link is red not green on the category page), so Editbot won't be able to complete the re-naming, until that is set up.

Thanks for your help, regards, Margaret, Categorization project volunteer.

I cannot thank you enough LaMyra!!!🙂🙂 Now I need to find the connection, lol. Have a marvelous day

Hello LaMyra,

It is time for the semi-annual check in for June, 2022 with members of the US Southern Colonies Project. Have you been active during the last six months? Note that it is a requirement to respond to the US Southern Colonies Check-ins. Please respond to this message by clicking the reply button below this message, to post your answer. I look forward to hearing from you..

Many thanks,

Mary~ Project Coordinator, Membership, US Southern Colonies

I'm still active. Is there anything in particular the project needs me to be doing?
posted by LaMyra Morton
Thank you for replying to the US Southern Colonies June 2022 check in, LaMyra. I have marked you as active.

Since you asked what you could do for the project, I looked at your contributions. Profile such as this need the Southern Colonies sticker on the biography. You post the sticker below the Biography header, then SAVE. Here is the page for stickers

You might also check the unsourced profiles for Southern Colonies, to research and add sources to any profile.

Hello LaMyra,

umm, silly question I'm not good yet at the profile numbers and don't even know mine. SAD, lol Could you tell me where i can print the numbers with the names to have for reference??? Thank you, Jackie Brumble Mills

Your watchlist in the menu bar at the top will give you a list of profiles you've created or adopted with the #'s, but I don't think that is what you are wanting exactly.

It's not very printer-friendly, but the only way I can think of is to use Wikitree Plus to generate a report. Wikitree + is different from Wikitree and it is what people use for getting reports for Data-doctoring, error suggestions and the marathon events. But you can use it for personal reports too.

So, try this:

Then you can edit the parameters on the left to change the starting person, the # of generations you are looking at or limit it to just direct ancestors. You are Brumble-81. There's not a lot of Brumbles.

Hi LaMyra,

Thanks for taking responsibility for Orphaned Profiles. It looks like you are already doing the things recommended by the After Adopting Orphans FAQ. We really appreciate you becoming the caretaker of profiles!

Good evening fellow Team Missouri teammate!    

Since Eowyn provided the major links in her email, I'm dropping by with the other main one you'll need. This will take you to the state links for the suggestions that need to be fixed.  Click on the state you want to work on and it will bring up a huge chart of suggestions. If you have any question about how things work or if there's any issues, drop a note in the Team chat or PM me.     And the most important thing is...have fun!

Go Team MO!!

Hi, I noticed you made an edit on Parker-19064 and changed the estimated date but the reference still says:

Prudence Parker was born in 1606 in Plymouth, England. <ref>This year of birth is just a guess to assist in differentiating him from others of different eras. The place is a guess as well based on the fact that William was in Plymouth for his adulthood.</ref>

Was there a source you were going to add to confirm the 1606 year and location? If not it should say "about" as it did.

Sorry, yes I have the source. I am working back and between the children and their father and I guess I left without getting hers done. I'll go back and take care of it.

The Westward Ho/Trails and Wagon Trains Project needs your help!

Regarding profiles for Mary Lovina Baker (1850-1857) et al. Please visit this G2G page to support creating a Westward Ho/Trails and Wagon Trains sticker.

Thanks, your consideration of this request is appreciated!

Hi LaMyra, Thank you for your additions on Denton-3627. I got lost and sidetracked of what I was doing. Actually I was dancing on the ceiling over finding out what happened to Lucinda Wood. It also gives me a closer time frame on when her mother would have died. Putting tht Copeland, Denton and Wood together was mindbending.


posted by Lynette Jester
There was a gentleman I was working with many years ago that was trying so hard to connect Lucinda Arnold Denton to my Arnolds. We never could get it to work. Looks like no else has made much progress with her over the years. I imagine that man has died without knowing. His old emails would be on a computer I never use anymore, but I do remember her.

My name is Sarah and I’m the new Project Leader for The Native Americans Project. This is your project check-in letter. I would love to hear back from you about your current Native American research interests and project related activity.

Thank you,

Sarah Mason, NA Project Leader

posted by Sarah Mason
I am a Cherokee citizen well versed in my native heritage. I work on Native American projects on an ongoing basis. I continue to monitor, add sources, expand bios, etc for all my family members including the Cherokees. I also occasionally take on other NA projects as well... just because.

I currently am adding profiles for the passed signers of the Cherokee Speakers Roll and other notable Cherokees as I see them announced and do try to trace them back as far as I can, but I do hope that other descendants, relatives or project members will recognize where they belong and help. I also add other NAs I find interesting when their death makes the news. I have worked on Brian Moss, killed in 9/11 and Agnes Pilgrim, co-founder of the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. There was a gg-grandaunt that married a Wyandotte, so I've done a fair amount of work on them too.

A while back, I started going through the Principle Chief free space page with the goal of making sure they all had linked profiles. I left a few of the oldest ones undone as I thought they may already have profiles under some strange version of their name that I couldn't recognize, so Kathie may want to review that page. I think there are still two or three that need profiles or linked. The page itself could stand a review, I think. I'm not sure that everyone there belongs there. There may need to be some other pages created for deputy chiefs, old settler chiefs, military 'chiefs', etc. Wikitree gets a bit too unwieldy for me with all its categories, projects, pages, and stickers. Anyway, as a result of this, Chief Thompson has become a pet interest.

Hi, LaMyra!

Thank you for your participation in October’s 2020 Source-a-thon. Your contributions helped us to clear over 57,000 profiles that needed sourcing. This makes our Shared Tree all that much better.

Hi LaMyra,

I see that you have a number of Blythe profiles with the Trail of Tears category connected. There has been a recent update to that category making it a "High Level" category and creating a Cherokee Trail of Tears subcategory. Please consider updating these profiles by replacing Category:Trail_of_Tears with Category:Cherokee_Trail_of_Tears.

LaMyra, Zacariah Ary, according to the records here in Rowan County, N.C. was the brother of John and Abraham Ary (Aery) and various other spellings. They (the three of them) and a sister Mary Cathren were the children of Petter Ihrig of Mosbach, West Germany.
posted by Steven Arey
Thank you LaMyra for that entry. Very little is known about Zacariah Ary in the history that I have. My 4th Great Grandfather was John Ary, Zacariahs brother. We have listed here Zachariah's brothers John and Abraham, his wife Suxanna, hs sons, Jacob and Henry; and his daughters, Margaret, Rosena, and Maryan.. The 1800 Census listed there were seven persons rresiding in the household of Zachariah Eary." In 1810 there were five persons and Zacariah was listed as 45 years old. There is a copy of his will here. This reference is a book titled "Palatine Progeny" The Arey Family of Rowan Countyy, North Carolina and Related Families, 1749-1983, written by Harriett Arey Davidson.
