Categories: Rollet-41.


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 for correcting my typo. I usually try to catch them but my mistake also made a word. Does WikiTree need a better spellchecker? HAHAhaha

Hi Karen,

I noticed that you are using the Challenge Tracker for unsourced corrections in this weekend's Saturday Sourcing Sprint. If you would like to have your totals kept individually on the Sprint Tracking Sheet (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Saturday_Sourcing_Sprints#Tracking), be sure to add an answer (not a comment) to the current Saturday Sourcing Sprint G2G thread (https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/tag/sourcing_sprints). Team membership is not required.

No pressure, every profile with a source makes our WikiTree better. Your work will be included in the Unregistered total at the bottom if you do not register.

Your work is appreciated. Thanks for sourcing!

Debi - Sprint Facilitator

PS If the links don't work, you can find them in the public comment I left on your profile

For profiles you can't source, add a Research Notes section at the bottom indicating where you looked and had no luck so future researchers don't waste time down the same path.
