Biography

These days I spend most of my time doing genetic genealogy, blogging, speaking, and helping people with their DNA results. I come to this from a programming background.

I have my own web development business, Open Sky Web Design, http://www.openskywebdesign.com/ which I founded in 2001 shortly after retiring early from corporate life in NYC. I now live in the San Diego area and have avocado trees and citrus and a view. I have been doing genealogy since 1997 - see my family history site - and genetic genealogy since 2012 - see my blog

My biography to date is posted on my genealogy blog as well as on my Bridge Teaching site.

Just stopping by to say hello!

Relationship finder believes we are 22nd cousins 4x removed through Olaf I (Guðrøðarson) Gudrødsen.

Hi Kitty,

I checked the relationship finder and we're 26th cousins:) We are both descended from Arpadhazi-5 Thanks for all your research! I hope to get DNA testing soon.

Hello Kitty

It looks like we may be 20th cousins 5 times removed through Olaf II (Guðrøðarson) [Gudrodsson-3] who probably didn’t exist or so his profile biography said. Seems like an pretty uncertain relationship to me. It seems to me that I have a lot of uncertain relationships with an amazing variety of people. Otherwise 25 degrees of separation.

Kitty Cooper is 29 Degrees from Maggie N, by coincidence through early some New York State Munsons!

Hi Cousin!

We're 23 Degrees apart, but we're also 24th cousins once removed ... through Henry 1, King of England! He's a new-to-me ancestor & (ashamed to say it), a new-to-me historical person too.* But I do love what I learn from WikiTree. Loved your interview too, especially the pictures!

Cheers, Liz

* nope, not quite new to me... just didn't recognize him out of context (4th son of William, father of Matilda - as a Brother Cadfael fan, I certainly know all about King Stephen and Empress Maud! I'm going to have fun exploring that connection :)

Hi Kitty

I love your Blog. Thanks for everything you do. I was wondering if you can tell me how you have so many DNA matches on this page. Were they just the ones you entered yourself or could you add a link to cousins you know you match dna with on here somehow?

Hi! I invite you to tag any Tryon records you maintain so they may be listed in the Tryon Name Study.

We actually have three categories - one for the Americas, one for England, and one catch-all.

You can find these linked from my profile.

If you have any questions - don't hesitate to ask!

I think Johh H. Thompson father was Hans Branvig. Hans came from Jugleroen, Norway in the spring of 1871. His wife name was Sonneva and she passed away a few weeks after arriving in Illinois. She is buried at the West Lisbon Luthern Cemetary in Lisbon, Illinois. One of his daughters married a Johnson and their son John A. Johnson is my Great, Great Grandfather.
