On 17 Dec 2018 My one year anniversary on Wikitree I'm only a day late in celebrating!
Today is Monday, 16 Dec 2019. Two Years on WikiTree today. When I first started here on WikiTree I would not have believed that I would make it to two years. It was really rough going in the beginning. But have to love the G2G feed and all those who have helped make the journey get easier every day. So thank you WikiTree I'm so glad I found you!
I am a "family genealogist". I work on both my husbands family and my family. I keep saying I have 12,000 profiles to add and the number never seems to go down because every time I research to enter another profile here on WikiTree I continually add more people to my Ancestry.com account. Briefly some of the names are; Halpin, Kornbau, Eisensmith, Parthemore, Salvatore, Del Carlino, Diodata, Guida, Hunt, West, Ulrich, Scarborough......
Upon my husbands retirement (Gregory Halpin), then Mayor Kim Bracey, named him as Chief Historian for the Department of Fire and Rescue Services. We had an opportunity this past August to collaborate on Rev. Samuel Henry Stein legacy to our city's fire department and our state Pennsylvania State Fireman's Association and his profile here on WikiTree. I am looking forward to be able to collaborate with him on more profiles here on WikiTree.
I am currently part of three projects on WikiTree;
Challenges I participate in are the "Saturday Sourcing Sprints" and the Sourcerers' Challenge, a monthly challenge. I do not participate to win but to help improve our shared "WikiTree Family"! And then there is the yearly Source-A-Thon and I am on the Mid-Atlantic team.
I consider what I do in the projects and challenges part of "paying it forward" for so many here on WikiTree have been a tremendous help to me!
