The WikiTree community welcomes you  !


I used to lead the Historic Photographs project at WikiTree and one can still find some amazing images and vote for them at Photo of the Week or you can LIKE one at Facebook.

Speaking of historic photography, I have a couple friends who set up a collection of incredible photographs.

The other is collection developed by Louis Takacs from an underutilized genealogy resource - passports: Passport Research

The other one is at WikiTree by Rod Dubois : : Historic Photography Cabinet

We have a new project that is pretty exciting for people with Polish Roots created by the talented Summer Binkley called the Poland Project. I lead the The Holocaust Project which was started by the amazing Gaile.

I also lead the Irish Roots sub-project for county Kerry. I occasionally lend a hand in the Magyarország, Slovensko and other category projects at WikiTree. I can also help read Hungarian (Magyar) records or any records written in Latin if you need assistance. If you have a profile of a Hungarian ancestor here at WikiTree, let me know if you need sources. If you have found naturalization records or passenger records but can not understand/read the village for your immigrant Hungarian ancestor because of historical boundary changes, I will help pinpoint location.

I admin, with Nick, at the Hungary Exchange genealogy group at Facebook if you need help doing research in Hungary.

My Hungary surnames are:

Nagy, Stermenszky, Sebő, Rakai, Lorintz, Adam, Simon, Rozgany, Zsebik/Sebik, Farkas, Petö, Danko, Gyerus, Haluska, Vladikovsky/Hladikovsky, Polgaŕ, Söss/Sass, Plachetka, Chudi/Chudy, Kovacs, Mész, Szabo, Soka/Zsoka, Fabriczky, Istvanek/Istvanyik/Stephanik, Gothard, Skolnik, Pal, Gaal, Gäll, Császár, Svab.

Locations in Hungary (and some now in Slovakia):

Abaúj-Torna: Vendégi, Bódva-Vendégi (Hostovice), Jablonca (Silická Jablonica), Szin, Bódvaszilas, Szögliget, Varbóc, Hidvégardó, Derenk (extinct), Zubogy, Szádalmás/Almás (Jablonov nad Turňou), Körtvélyes (Hrušov). Borsod: Szendrő. Gömör: Krasznahorkaváralja (Krásnohorské Podhradie), Borzova (Silická Brezová), Rozsnyó (Rožňava), Végtelke (Slavec). Pozsony: Szekula (Sekule), Malaczka (Malacky).


Tree of Life

If you are lucky enough to be a genealogist, you are lucky enough. – Ruth Padilla ________________________________________________________________

"Genealogy is not about genes, it is about reconstructing family relationships, which are not necessarily genetic relationships. The 16th century heralds were doing genealogy long before Mendel discovered genetics." ~ A One-Name Researcher

"History remembers only the celebrated, genealogy remembers them all.” ~ Laurence Overmire


Magda does Franche-Comté, France & Eastern European heritage research as well as some American research. Her Canadian roots are in Hamilton, Ontario. She is a historical records searcher interested in specific northeastern Hungarian villages, especially where she has a registered One Place study. [1]

I've officially been here for one year!!!!! What a year it has been! Thanks for being there and working with me. Can't wait for another wiki-year!!

Hi, Maggie --

To me, it looks like the higher-numbered Merriam-321 has the most information; I thought the general preference was the use the lower number-317. I don't know of any personal family connection with George Merriam-321--although the name IS within my family and heritage. I would prefer to let someone ELSE do the merge (is that possible if I am the manager?)

Hi Maggie,

I wonder if you could help. I registered my email and uploaded my DNA volunteered and signed the Honour codea few weeks ago, but am still registered anly as a guest member and can't even edit my own family. Is this normal or have I made a mistake somewhere?

Many Thanks,

HI Maggie, I added you to my Slovakian profiles. I have been experimenting with categories. Please feel free to correct anything. I am trying to figure out if I need Slovakia, Slovensko or both for places like Vel'ky' Lipnik. I am copying the names with the diacritical marks from familysearch and wikipedia because I am not sure how to type them otherwise. Thanks for your help! :) Sharon

Hi hun,

I am not finding a relationship tracked for us yet but am eager to see how we are connected when there is one.

I wanted to tell you thank you for helping me with my G2G post. I can not believe i did not tag anything. It was great to have the help. I appreciate it.

The Kerry Space and Kerry Project seem to mimic one another (except that I recently updated the former not that latter).

What's the story on that? It would be sub-optimal to keep them manually synchronized.

FYI: I moved a Kerry resource from the Ireland page to the Kerry page and replaced it with *County Kerry Resources. I also added a reference to on the Kerry page, then saw there was a reference to a page on that site and merged them into one entry retaining both references.
