Attention Cousins

If anybody wants to be added to the Trusted List and/or be made Profile Manager of any of my profiles, just message me. I have made a lot of profiles on here, and our ancestors belong to all of us!  :)

Also FYI: a lot of the really interesting stuff is in My Free Space Profiles

Genealogical Interests

"The past isn't dead. It isn't even past." -- William Faulkner

Genealogy is an interesting blend of interests to me. There are those folks who are interested in going as far back in time as they can, and building their family tree with names and dates. I tend to be a bit more into the family history side of it (especially since I have two previous genealogists in my family tree who already did extensive work tracing the lineage back, so my main tree is fairly well built already). Of course, I love the thrill of "discovery" when I am rooting around in a box of old photos or hear a family story from an older relative - but I think it's equally satisfying (and important!) to organize those old photos and stories in a way that they can be shared with those who come after us and are looking to rediscover the past. (That is why I am on Wikitree!) In other words, I am more interested in going "deep" than "broad," so to speak.

Every part of my family line has been a part of the American South for a very long time. I have in my lineage people from all walks of life -- veterans, farmers, judges, landowners, adventurers, businessmen. And, slaveholders. I don't believe in whitewashing or romanticizing the past, and that's part of the past. As of this writing I have uncovered 8 slaveholders who owned around 80 slaves. In the future I hope to tell more of this part of the story.

“Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world...would do this, it would change the earth.” ― William Faulkner

Hi Crispin

It has been a couple of weeks since we contacted you about your participation in the Louisiana Families Project and as we haven't heard from you, we are following up to make sure you wish to remain a member.

We understand that interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to the branches they are currently building. If this is the case for you, please let us know.

If we do not hear back from you within the week, we will assume you have moved on to other things for the moment and remove you from the project. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.

Karen ~ Volunteer Coordinator

Hi Crispin

On behalf of the Louisiana Families Project, we are doing a periodic check-in with members. Please review the project page [1], and if you feel you are able and would like to contribute to the project in the upcoming months, please let me know by commenting on my profile or sending a private message. If you have other obligations or interests at the moment and would like to be removed from the project at this time, you will always be welcome to rejoin if you find yourself with more time and interest later.

All of us at WikiTree would like to thank you for your contributions and hope that you are enjoying exploring your roots.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi Cousin Crispin,

Just wanted so share a fascinating hidden feature on WikiTree. You can get a report for all your known ancestors within 2,000 years by typing this in your URL: (Just replace Cruz-788 with your WIkiTree ID)

I found a 69th generation ancestor. He is listed as King Prasutagus of the Iceni, born 0010 in Icenia, Britannia. (WikiId: Iceni-3).

Iceni were a British Celtic tribe of eastern Britian during the Iron Age and early Roman Era. His history offers a fascinating story about how his wife, Boudici, after her husbands death about 50 A.D., led an uprising against the occupying Roman Empire, and gave the Roman's such hell that she later became a British folk hero.

There are many others to explore

Hi Cousin Crispin,

I just wanted to say hello! And to share that we are 24th cousins. Our common ancestor is Jaime I de Aragon. King James I of France (1208-1271). He is your 23rd g-grandfather and mine.

I don't know if you are aware that we also share 26 other ancestors before him up to 30 generations, who are monarchs and nobles of France, Spain, England, Germany, Hungary, etc.

Beyond that, the older ancestral trail gets even more interesting to explore! Did you know that your deep roots were in Monarchy of Europe? There are ancestors in your family tree, who you'd likely be astonished to discover!

Just wanted to share this information, and to say Hi. Isn't Wikitree fun!

Hi Crispin,

I just saw your message on my 2nd cousin, Josh A Varnado's wall, My Mom was a graduate of Franklinton High School in about 1948. I took a gander at the picture you loaded and saw David Bullock and Margaret Bullock that we are definitely related to. Thanks for posting that.
