The WikiTree community welcomes you  !


I think most peoples' interests in family genealogy usually begin at family gatherings, like a funeral or reunion. I know that was the case for me while a teenager because in three consecutive years, I lost a beloved grandparent. Each time the trek to the graveyards during the funerals brought me to headstones surrounding the newly deceased grandparent and each time, most everyone did not know how they were related. I put the family jigsaw puzzle together by identifying everyone through the records office, church records and obituaries.

My genealogical forays were furthered not only by photographing the gravestones of my family but also the Early American gravestones of rural Vermont and New York (I studied art history with an emphasis on early American folk arts). Later, I was lucky to finish a certificate program at Brigham Young in the early 80's and began to help other people with their genealogical queries on the side.

My roots are not very "American"; my earliest immigrant settler sailed down the Erie Canal from France in 1827. I spent years reading French microfilms for my own Alsatian ancestry. My mother is largely Eastern European so I branched out in microfilms from Hungary, Slovakia and Russia Poland. My children's roots have taken me through American records, specifically colonial New Jersey and old Philadelphia. Recently, I tackled my impossible Irish ancestors in county Kerry with slow but steady research in their government records.


I lead the Polish Roots Poland Project as well as the Slavic Roots project.

I co-lead the The Holocaust Project which was started by the amazing Gaile.

I lead the Irish Roots sub-project for county Kerry while I break bricks walls on my impossible Irish roots.

I am also an interim leader for the William Penn project while the phenomenal project coordinator SJ Baty keeps it up for WikiTree.

Although I have no family connections, you will find me cleaning up certain Virginia profiles for the U.S. History project as well as any Quaker settlers in New Jersey.

I occasionally lend a hand in the Magyarország, Slovensko and other Slavic 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 used to co-administer, with genealogist Nick Gombash, the Hungary Exchange genealogy group at Facebook if you need help doing research in Hungary. I also have a rare Hungarian One Name Study registered with the One Name Guild. The Study is hosted by the Guild at their website Stermenszky One Name Study.

My back-up files ( upload 2016 ) are on RootsWeb. Stermenszky Files. I am still in process of moving them all to WikiTree.

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

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

Hi Maggie,

I noticed that you used the Challenge Tracker to track a change during last month's Sourcerers' Challenge and was really surprised to find that you don't already have the Sourcerers' Badge. Please consider officially joining us for the Sourcerers' Challenge. You can find information, including how to join, on the Sourcerers Project page.

No pressure, every profile with a source makes our WikiTree better. Your work will continue to be included on the Tracking Sheet even if you do not register.

Your work is appreciated. Thanks for sourcing!

Hi Maggie, I bought the book called "The West Family Register" inside the book it has 3 family trees not just the one I see on my West tree Someone has posted 4 consecutive Nathaniel's and no where in these, three trees, are there 4 consecutive Nathaniel's. In the book, the name Nathaniel is mentioned 16 times. So I think there is a big mistake. On my personal tree, I have traced to a Robert that leads to the Gov. John West tree, not all these Nathaniel's. The other two trees start from Anthony West 1652 and Joseph West abt. 1670. I posted in each of their names a copy of the trees. None of which show 4 consecutive Nathaniel's. Anyway, it looks to me that there is a lot that is messed up and I think showing those trees will help clear things up.

Another Bolling in need of a project (PPP) ... Bolling-278. Don't know if the 2014 PPP is what kept it safe or if it doesn't need PPP. I'm leaning toward the latter. What do you think?

Looking through the kids, I'll switch US Southern Colonies to Virginia for the ones with that project box, since Southern Colonies is dormant & add Agnes, Stith and Drury to be managed by Virginia also. Bolling-17 could use some attention... I'm inclined to leave him alone, but I probably should add him also (same for Bolling-16).

Probably the only child that needs to be project-protected already is... John Bolling-10. But he doesn't have a project as manager... Does Pocahontas Project have a project account? If not, I can add Virginia to his profile too (but notables project box would need to become a sticker).

I think that covers everybody.
