I think most peoples' interests in family genealogy usually begins 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 when I took a course and studied under Dorothy Dehn, a DAR genealogist. 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 was from France and sailed down the Erie Canal from New York 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 new Hungary Project. I also lead the Polish Roots Poland Project as well as the Slavic Roots project.

I am also the leader of the Slovak Roots project.

I feel privileged to help out with the The Holocaust Project with the lovely and brilliant Eowyn. It was created by the amazingly gifted project coordinator Gaile.

I lead the Irish Roots sub-project for county Kerry while I break bricks walls on my impossible Irish roots as well as my own One Name Study for the Delahunty Name Study and the Trant Name Study.

I am also co-leader of the Donauschwaben Project and the Volhynia project.

My kids have Quaker ancestors. If you have Early Penn ancestors, check out the William Penn project William Penn project which the phenomenal leader, SJ Baty, keeps it in motion for WikiTree.

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

My Personal Projects

My brickwalls are my Abrahams in Russia; my one "Italian" ancestor in 1800's Florsheim, Germany; one of my Irish Mahony ancestral lines; Plus, I have two great-great-grandmothers who were both named Ellen Sullivan, both born in Kerry, and both buried in the same cemetery! I did make great progress with my Palatinate Stumpfs recently as well as one of my other Mahony lines so I am thankful for little breakthroughs.


My Hungarian Ancestry

I occasionally lend a hand in the Magyarország, Slovensko and other Slavic category projects at WikiTree. I can also help read Hungarian 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. 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).

My Ancestors Research Statistics

Genealogy is not a race; statistics in genealogy is not necessary but creating a chart of your progress does make one work harder. After 40 + years of research, I know what records I need to continue onward in this crazy journey back on ancestors. It ALL depends on records. For example, with my Irish line, they will never go back very far because the records for a few of them simply do not exist. For my one Polish ancestor Wawrzyniec Kosakowski, I know I will be able to confirm to his parents and grandparents once I get through reading the Russian language in those records.

DNA Statements

So who are those DNA matches on my profile? Joe & Cynthia are two cousins from different lines on my Mother's side who convinced me to get tested. I was hesitant but what an adventure it has been.

Maternal relationship is confirmed by a DNA test match between Maggie N GEDmatch T322601 and Cynthia GEDmatch YT6343520 who are 3rd cousins. Their MRCAs are their great-great-grandparents Karol Stermenszky and Susanna Haluska.

Maternal relationship is confirmed by a DNA test match between Maggie N GEDmatch T322601and Joe Grusczynski GEDmatch A006381 who are 3rd cousins. Their MRCAs are their great-great-grandparents, August Zimmer and Cycelia (Putkowski) Zimmer.

On my Dad's side:

Paternal relationship is confirmed by a DNA test match between Maggie N and Kathleen Mahony who are 2nd cousins. Their MRCAs are their great-grandparents, Daniel Mahony and Anna Jones.

Since you were the greeter for Laura Eagleboy (some time ago now), I thought that I would seek you out to help me upgrade Laura's account from "Guest" to "Member" (is that the right term for someone with full rights?). I had created a page, when I was working on Hochunk genealogy, for one of her ancestors, Frank Tebo, I think it was. She wrote me wanting to add further information to the profile, but we didn't know how to go about it. I have her email and I have put her on the Trusted List, but her status remains the same.

Also, I want to sponsor a person who has most of her tree on, but which is quite small compared to mine. She is related to me through my paternal GG-grandfather, and so would only need to connect to him to get the Wikitree benefits. So how do I go about getting her established?

Laura Eagleboy has to move herself from guest to member by herself. Is she still using the same email address for her WikiTree account? [email address removed] may be able to help her, Richard.

Hi Maggie, perhaps you missed my requests to be added to as active manager of the profile Van_der_Merwe-2703. I'm researching the van der Merwe-genealogy (with other WikiTree members), using In Search of Notability - the Antecedents of Dawid van der Merwe of the Koue Bokkeveld by Susan Newton-King - See Appendix 2. as research tool (see the comment box of the uploaded document). If you follow the comments on this profile, you'll see that there are several Death Notices involved where facts became blurred, already in the 19th century.

It is important for me to be an active manager on this profile, and not only on the trusted list.

Kind regards, Philip van der Walt

Maggie: I saw a comment you made to Ellen Ward. I don't know what kind of connection you have with her, but she made changes to my Wikitree on Christopher Calvert and Elinor Odait that are untrue, and she made them without bothering to consult me. My 7th GG Christopher Calvert is NOT related to Leonard Calvert or any other Calvert's connected to Leonard. Leonard's family were Catholics. My Christopher was a Quaker. I have taken y-DNA-111, haplogroup R-Z16502, atDNA, and mtDNA tests from Ancestry, Family Tree, and Living DNA, and I DO NOT MATCH Leonard Calvert's family in any way, shape, or form. I am a member of Calvert Genealogy which has several hundred members. Among those members are TRUE descendants of Leonard Calvert. My DNA does not match their DNA at all. If Ellen Ward had bothered to do any research on my family or Leonard Calvert's family, she would have known that. I have told Ellen Ward to change my Wikitree. If she does not change it, I want her removed from the Wikitree family.

Hi Richard, it may take me till next week (because of holidays) but I will look into this Christopher Calvert and Elinor Odait situation, plus Ellen's changes.

Thanks for alerting us!

Maggie: I may have been hasty in contacting you. Changes were made, but I don't know if she is the one who made the changes regarding Leonard Calvert. It may have been someone else. I noticed several changes, and the last known change was made by Ellen. But I can't swear she's the one who made the change I'm upset about.

If I'm wrong, I take responsibility. I don't want Ellen to get in trouble if she didn't make the Leonard Calvert change.

Sarah Wilson Ryals, only have birth and death on her, CRI Genetics, said there was no Jewish DNA, but her husband told my dad she was Jewish. CRI said that my Slavic/Bulgarian roots were no relation to Jews there.
posted by Timothy Ryals
I took a DNA test and found Slavic Roots, is it possible that they are Jewish? My paternal great grandmother claimed to be Jewish, but nothing showed up in the DNA test for Jew.
posted by Timothy Ryals
Where did you take the test, Timothy? Did her grandson or any of your Uncles/Aunts or even your siblings test? She may still be Jewish. A great-grandparent is 1/8th of your DNA heritage. With DNA inheritance being so random, maybe you didn't get much of it. Is her profile on here? I can research her for you if her family's profile is on WikiTree.

Hi Maggie,

I'm not a member of your project, but I do have a question. My maiden name is Andrews, and in tracing my lineage I came across a claim that my ancestor Robert d'Audrieu (1046-1076) was the illegitimate son of Andrew I Arpad, King of Hungary and Adelais d'Audrieu during the time of King Andrew's wandering exile in Bohemia, Poland, and Russia. Adelais was from Normandy. I have been told emphatically that Andrew had no children before his marriage to the daughter of Yaroslav, the Wise. However, since he was a pagan at that time, it does not seem reasonable that he would be celibate in his relationships with women. Do you think this connection is possible?

Maggie, I don't know whether you get notified if I reply to your comment on my profile, so I'll copy my note here. (This is regarding the Hungary project member page and its translation.)

I'm fluent in all forms of Hungarian, but the English part of the page is a bit confusing to me, so I'm not sure if the translation is correct or not. (Either the English is saying the same thing multiple times, or I'm missing a distinction somewhere.) Also, is the stuff in curly brackets supposed to be translated ("member" -> "tag")?

In the interest of avoiding repeated effort, is there a well-formatted and clearly-written project member page from a different project that we could copy? Once the English is as clear & clean as we can get it, I'll be happy to translate it all.

It's my honor to help out with the Holocaust project. Thank you for adding me.
posted by Alan Pendleton
Maggie, How would any of us know if we have Holocaust ancestors? I have a whole line of my father's German relatives that is empty and another that is partly full. But in either one, I could have a Holocaust ancestor.

My father, who stated his birth as in Frankfurt, DE, didn't know who his father was. I sense that he was left off his German mother's instructions at dad's birth, in 1905-7. That line of Germans and possible Jews is the blank line. How do I research it?

So sorry I did not reply to your inquiry about German Ancestors. Mine come from the Odessa region, so I am assuming the Black Sea Germans, not the ones you were referencing. Thanks!
