Karen (Rollet) Lorenz is participating with Anywherers during the 2018 Clean-a-Thon.


Karen was born May 9, 1958 to John Rollet and Carol Schei in Detroit, Michigan.

She married Jeff Lorenz on July 19, 1986. They have two children.

Personal geneology notes:

My grandmother came from Sweden when she was two. I am trying to add what I know about her side of the family from a tree that was handed down to me from one of her relatives in Sweden. It goes back to 1600's. I just need to add everybody and verify all the dates with sources. BIG JOB.

I work full time so I don't have as much time to spend with my own tree as I should be. I enjoy being a data doctor, arborist, and participating in the challenges.

Thank you for the follow up on the Proposed Merge of Unknow-62831 and Klein-2864.

Klein-2864 is of my line. Wife of Adam Walcher. Residence in Mecklenburg Co, now Cabarrus Co. N.C. The last name started to go over to Walker around 1830. We still have the family with Walcher or Walker as last names. Was thinking the Merge had been done in Dec. 2017. 4 Dec. Susan McNamee had reviewed the MatchBot-proposed merge of Klein-2864 and unknown-95223 & confirmed they're duplicates. 10 Jan 2018 Isabella Rassinot wrote. Please confirm that the last name at birth is Klein before merging. Christina Walcher formerly Klein (2864) was from Germany. Died in N.C. Anna Christina Dewin formerly DeGanck was from Belgium. Died in Belgium. Thanks for the help with this merging stuff. Walchers of N.C. to Walkers

Winborne-28 and Winborne-38 are not ready to be merged because: There have been a lot of drastic changes to Winborne-28, profile without any viable sources to back why they were made. Only that Winborne-28 profile was changed so that it could mirrof Winborne-38. Why were these changesmade, and have we lost an individual in the process? Original Winborne-28 was borne in 1662 Virginia.

My 7th Great Grandfather was John Winborne 1676 14 years later in Mass. Pm of Winborne -28 never responded to why the changes were made to mirror Winborne-38. Until it can be verified that we have not erased a profile for another John Winborne, this merge should not take place. Best Regards, Cheryl Stone Caudill

Hi Karen, you found a FamilySearch record for the Christening of Anna Sondell a while ago. Unfortunately it was a transcription with a gender bias. I looked up the image of the original record at Riksarkivet SVAR and added the link.
