"We live as long as we are remembered."

Often cited as an old Russian proverb, this line is one of the most quoted amongst genealogists when asked why they do what they do. They believe they have a responsibility to honor the memories of their ancestors so that they will not be forgotten.

Another way of explaining this feeling among genealogists is that we are called to be the "storytellers" of our families. If you have an interest in genealogy, please take time to read Della M. Cummings Wright's description ( of why genealogists are the "chosen ones" of each generation.

Hi Bob!

You sent me this message: I agree that Baker-12904 and Becker-4533 are the same individual, however the merge "direction" should be the former merged into the latter because the correct LAST NAME AT BIRTH is the German "Becker". So I propose that the merge "direction" be Baker-12904 as ID 1 and Becker-4533 as ID 2. If okay with you, I will initiate that merge.

I've been busy so I have no idea if I ever answered you, if not, I apologize profusely. Absolutely yes, do the merge as it should be, based on the sources at hand. Thanks for the message! Debi

Hey Bob,

I saw the comment you posted on Susannah Hite's profile. The manager of that profile, Jon Cunnyngham hasn't made any contributions to WikiTree since 16 October 2014.

As Susannah's profile has a privacy level of open, you may disconnect her from an incorrect parent providing you document your actions on the profiles stating your reasons.

Sometimes WikiTreers post a question in the G2G before they do this to see if others have sources. See the G2G discussions tagged disconnect.

Happy WikiTreeing


Hi Bob

I see a new GEDCOM badge. Here's a link to a great step-by-step of the process including screenshots that you might find helpful.

Help pages give lots of info about the process, best to start with 'Before you import a GEDCOM'.

If you have brick walls, collaboration might help bust through. WikiTree has one profile for each person, so the further back you go in your ancestry, the more likely cousins will find you and help out. ANY Wiki Genealogist can edit "Open" profiles (over 200 years old).

Discussions tagged as GEDCOM in the G2G forum and brickwall.

Researching my family history is not just a hobby, but more so a way for me to honor those the memories of those who came before me.

I agree with the mission and the nine simple rules of WikiTree.
