I was named Judith Ann Quinn when born, have since changed to Judy Quinn Cardwell. I was the oldest of six children, my father a medical doctor and my mother a housewife, raised in Hollister California, a rural farming community. I went to UCDavis, married a Butterfield, had three sons and moved east, eventually to North Carolina. I worked as a critical care nurse at UNC Hospitals from which I’ve now retired. It is here that I met my now husband, a native of rural Rockingham County, North Carolina. Our dna testing led to a new awareness of our family relationships and their histories. My parents were from southeastern Idaho where their geneaologies are well documented in LDS records. Reading stories of the families of my father, the Quinns, my mother, the Hunts, and now my husband’s father the Cardwells and my husband’s mother the McBrydes, I find that all were early settlers in America and reportedly all were in North Carolina in its earliest days. I’m interested in learning what I can about these family members in North Carolina.

You have been a member about a week. How is it going so far? Was the first page of the How-Tos helpful or did it leave you with questions? It has confused the best of us at times!
Did you know that if you click the green tags on your profile page, you can see if other members are following that tag. Add your interests, surnames, or locations to your profile. The more tags you add the more links to community & research options.
Any problems or queries just click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page or send me a private message.

Thanks for volunteering! You are now a full member of the WikiTree community, and can start adding your family. Let me know if you have any questions.
Since WikiTree is different from other genealogy sites, we have a guided tour for new members at New Member How-To. Feel free to work through the How-Tos at your own pace.
Once you add profiles to WikiTree they become searchable and in my experience persons interested in these profiles will contact you and may provide further information to expand your family tree.
Great to have you on board, enjoy, and good luck growing your branches.
