Biography

I am a former journalist and communications brand manager. An empty nester, I've raised four children, now aged 22 to 32. I used to spend way too much of my free time falling into black holes of genealogical research, sometimes until the wee hours. So I'm now a professional genealogical researcher and producer of family history materials.

You'll find me at the Family History Detectives™ / FHD Media, LLC.

Hi & thanks for your note. I'm not as active as I was with the Virginia Project and have left off working on the Richard Taylor problems. Sorry!

Hello Allison,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz! Pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, thus coordinating with others is essential.

The US Southern Colonies seems to fit your research interests. Click the link to read how to join. Or use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find an alternate project.

Please refer to the new recommended sources for citing Pre-1700’s sources. when working on profiles of that time period.

For questions, just ask.

Hi Allison. I will gladly give you access to William Peacock. All i ask is that you run any info you would like to add to this profile past me first and I will share it with Chad Olivet who has done some great work on the Peacocks. As you mostly likely know there is alot of misinformation on the Peacock line. My interest is on Katherine Hunicutt Peacock. My great grand mother on my father's side. And a great grand mother of Jimmy Carter. There is a study page for her. Please feel free to peruse the desendant list. We are aware of inacurate info. If you can help please feel free to contact me. Believe me help is welcome. Sources are welcome. I have MS and do not do much on wikitree anymore. Jeremiah Moore is my nephew and is also new. So welcome.

The reliable sources pages are still a work in progress, having only been officially started about 2 months ago. Virginia falls under the US History Project's list. Many of the links point back to sub-project pages, so it can be a bit tricky to find things.

I recommend making a post in the the G2G forum. There you could create a new post to introduce yourself. Down at the bottom where it says "Surnames and project tags," add tags like you did on your profile. Definitely add a tag for Virginia. If there is a specific ancestor you want to work on, include that profile URL too. That will get the attention of interested parties.

Thanks for your note, Allison.

Since you are interested in specific ancestors, I would put their surnames in the Tag boxes. Tags become clickable links to a list of other members who are interested in that surname and links to other resources. For the Comments that go with those tags, I would include the name of the specific ancestors as well as a time period and general location. You can see an example on my profile (click my name to go there).

Your sources sound interesting. Do you think they would be good candidates for lists of reliable pre-1700 sources?
