Karen's current to-do list Arborist merges contacted by Karen

Karen (Rollet) Lorenz participated with "Team Tennessee" during the 2018 Source-a-Thon, adding some sources to profiles.



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.

Thanks Karen for merging this person for us. More research on this family in different types records need to be done. I believe they are Native American family. Do to Walter Pleckner and people like him that bible inscription maybe only prof of it. But family oral Traditions and photos still lives in Descendants. I know Virginia has been trying to reclaim Native American Families. Hopefully we can rebuild this one.

Thanks for pointing out my mistake. Got a little to tired the other night.

"The merge of Love Coffin and Love Daggett is now partially approved and can be completed when the remaining manager(s) approve it."

I've been working the manager of the John D Ross profile and had proposed a potential merge before reaching out to her, but there are too many uncertainties in the records at this point.

For example: all records I've found about John Ross who was married to Charlotte Natcher never refer to him with a middle initial. Even his will and his military service records only say "John Ross".

I just heard from the manager of the John D. Ross profile and she is uncertain that his wife is Charlotte Natcher.

There are notes on both profiles with some info about this.

Onward to do more research! Thanks again for reaching out!

Best, S

I became Profile Manager for Maria Freer (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Freer-159) because it was orphaned. I agree that she is unlikely to be the daughter for Petrus and Marietje. Would you like to become the profile manager?

A merge was completed where the mother and father were removed. Then the father and son were merged together. The birth dates are clearly different. Albert Alphius Behunin (1770-1835) removed as the child of Alphus Behunin (1713-1789). See Behunin-11

RE: proposed merge of Sherrod Harris (Harris-9129) and Sherrod Harris (Harris-2630)

One of the profiles is not well-documented (only Ancestry.com) and the difference in parents is not the only factor. From the present to the past there is a documented line (professional genealogists). The mother's name ("Hudson" vs "Hudspeth") etc. are within the margin of error on the poorly-documented profile/line. Please reconsider your rejection.

I'm curious, did you see why I rejected that match before?
