educated in Los Angeles public schools; B. A., UCLA, 1976; M. A., Syracuse University, 1978; Ph.D., UCLA, 1988

My interest in genealogy began with annual trips to Oregon to visit grandparents, aunts and uncles. The stories told around my uncles' fireside in Eugene, Oregon, with my great-grandfather's mantel clock ticking away the minutes, were heard over and over until I began to check them out for myself. Once it was discovered that I had an interest in family history, I was given an incredible legacy of heirlooms and photos.

In graduate school I used research skills to track down ancestors on microfilm and in rare books.

Hi, Margaret

The Ambassadors project has been reorganizing and is looking for those who have a membership at a genealogical society, to help in spreading the word about WikiTree.

We're working on ways to improve how WikiTree connects and interacts with genealogical and local history societies. This is the kind of thing we want to do:

  • Liaise with societies: set up your local society with a free-space page and some WikiTree materials as part of a package.
  • Use social media to promote what societies are offering on WikiTree.
  • Encourage bloggers to blog about societies and the resources available to them on WikiTree.

Are you interested in participating in some way? Do you have some ideas to share?

Azure, my local society has not met since January and I could share a link on a free-space page. The volunteer staff no longer have the time to keep the society's web page updated; however, they are gathering material for an update as soon as time becomes available. I have written some research articles that will appear on the web page when that happens.

I suppose I could put the Sno-Isle Genealogical Society link on the Snohomish County page on Wikitree. We'll see what happens.

Azure, I have been trying to put the link to the Sno-Isle Genealogical Society <> on the Snohomish County Project page and I keep getting a 404 error. I get a 404 error too when I click on the link to the Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society. There's something in the address coding that I don't understand.
Hello, Margaret my favorite quilter!

Hello. My name is Ivania J. Townsend/Morrill. I want to thank you for finding the degrees from you, Fredrerick Douglass and Henry VIII of England. It is astonishing to find that on my mothers side, that the Christensen that marrried Julia Osborne, also goes back to Henry VIII of England and his second wife. So now, the person that would be the 27th degrees, would be my brother Derald D. Townsend. Ivan's son. Thank you again. I can't wait to share this with my brother.
posted by Ivania Townsend Closer than what I typically see in the connections sent out weekly. Thought you might find it of interest!

Margaret, I don't have info on Dennis MT Brassfield's death. Sorry. I'm pleased to see you added Susan but I don't think she is Aunt Susie, right? Regards, Steve.

Thank you for the note. I will try to find my documentation on the Carmichael family and verify the birth location of John. I do know his brother James was born in Scotland but need to doublecheck when the family actually migrated to the U.S.

Regarding your comment about Betsey Woodard on the page for John Woodard. Betsey is short for Elizabeth, and there is, in fact, an Elizabeth Woodard listed on the 1850 Census.
