I do speak and read French, though it has been some time. That said, if someone needs help with French, I'm more than willing to try. I'm getting better at reading Elizabethan English, I'm quite good with Middle English, I know no Latin... I'm quite good at reading different forms/styles of Cursive writing (well penmanship styles do change from one era to the next!).
At present, I'm trying to do wikitree community work while also putting up new profiles of all of my ancestors, and I'm doing this profile by profile rather than uploading some file, for I wish to review all of the information so I'm less likely to replicate mistakes I may have made months ago. I understand a great deal more about the research process now than I first did, particularly when you have little to go on, which with certain ancestors is--alas--very much true.
I've lived in various parts of the US, in England, France, and in North Africa, West Africa, and the Middle East. I've travelled in Canada, Belgium, Italy, etc.
I have never been to Scotland, and I would love to go there, for I'm part Scottish!
I speak no German, but I have German ancestry, and this is proving to be a challenge, though I just joined the German group, and on the 5th of Feb. of 2020, I discovered that a profile that needed some sourcing actually is the profile of my third great-uncle! It was only when I looked through the notes I've taken that I realized the connection. It's amazing how all of this works.
I live in DC. I love Paris.
Cheers and all that!
