Biography

I have been interested in genealogy since childhood because my grandparents, great-aunts and great-uncles were wonderful family storytellers. The problem was that I didn't know which stories were true, and which were either family legends or bedtime stories never intended to be taken as actual family history.

I became more serious about genealogy from 2006 to 2007, but gave it up after coming across so many wacky online family trees. In 2013, my brother asked a question about Henry Frank Smith, our great-great-grandfather. A quick Google search showed that there were now multitudes of free internet resources, including newspaper images, cemetery records, passenger lists, and some vital records going back to the 1600s. I caught the genealogy bug again.

I discovered WikiTree in September 2013, and have been using it extensively. I'm volunteering as a Greeter/Mentor, and an Arborist, focusing on merging and cleaning up Puritan Great Migration profiles.


Relatives (I know of) who are active on WikiTree

... which brings me to this.

Following this tag may decrease how often I embarrass myself.
ARBORISTS
Arborists propose merges and clean up messy profiles. If you're patient and detail-oriented, this job's for you!
BEDELL
I'm trying to distinguish between 2 or 3 Daniel Bedells to identify my third great-grandfather. He was born about 1800 in Dutchess County, New York, and moved to Rensselaer County as a child or young adult.
BLACK_SHEEP
My third great grandfather, John Gregory, was charged with murder in Thomas County, Georgia, in 1835. To escape prosecution, he fled the US with his younger brother, Richard, and they settled in the newly formed Republic of Texas.
CREWS
Maiden name of my maternal grandmother. Her extended family moved from Perry County, Alabama, to Smith County, Texas, in 1879. I'd be interested in a one-name study.
CRONE
Maiden name of my maternal great-grandmother. Her grandfather, Cyrus Scott Crone, moved from Ohio to Smith County, Texas, in the mid to late 1800s.
DUPLICATES

GREETERS
Replacing tag I deleted by accident!
HAKES
My husband's surname. His family came from Broome County, New York. I'd be interested in participating in a one-name study. Although the word hake can refer to a kind of fish, the surname Hakes probably refers to a bill hook (or "bill"), a nasty weapon used in medieval warfare.

Hello, it seems we have a common ancestor, Thomas Richardson V, we are 11th cousins, once removed. I wonder if it is in the genes to have a great inquisitiveness and care for our family histories. Happy searching and thanks for your great work.

Kindest Regards, Allison Patton Betz Patton-2882

Hi Carol, the David Crockett you have your tree, is not thee "David Crockett King of the Wild Frontier" right? Thee Alamo Davey is the son of John, nephew of Alexander. I want to make certain you have that right? Polly Finley was the wife of Alamo Davey.
