Genealogy Research

I have been researching my family history since 2010 when an commercial caught my attention. It all started with a free trial and then I was hooked. It wasn't about collecting names for my tree but finding out the stories that went with the names. Genealogy has become a passion of mine and I can usually be found in my office in front of the computer with my Legacy database open and lots of tabs open on the other monitor looking for the stories of my ancestors.

Most of my ancestors are from Pennsylvania and concentrated in Columbia, Montour, and Luzerne counties.

Some of my surnames include Seigfreid (Siegfried), Thomas, Killian, Hunter, Houseknecht, Minnich, Halderman, Hartman, Welsh, Allabach, McHenry, Rutan, Lewis, Masteller, and Shellhammer.

I blog about my family and Legacy family tree at Our Life Picture by Picture.

You can email me at sthomas51004 with any questions or if you think we might be related.

Have fun growing your family tree!!

Hello Shannon,

We wrote to you about the check-in for Profile Improvement Project (PIP) a couple of weeks ago. Would you like to continue in Biography Team Level 1 where we have placed you? That's the Team that works on improving profiles from both your own watchlist and projects you are involved with to Level 1 of the PIP Profile Standards.

We would like to hear from you with any ideas or suggestions. If you do not wish to participate in the Project, please let us know. If we don’t hear from you within 7 days we will remove you from the Project, but we will welcome you back at any time.

Dear Shannon,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing its first annual check-in with our project members. Please review the following and let us know if you are content where we have placed you or would like to be more involved.

We are in the process of transitioning to a team structure. There will be three participant PIP Teams to start -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. There is also the Voyage Team who guide new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team. You're currently identified as a member of the Biography Team Level 1, working on profiles from your own watchlist and whatever else you find. Biography Teams Levels 2 and 3 will work on designated profiles for notables (Level 3) and everyday people (Level 2). Please let us know if you would like to help with another Team.

You joined the Project before the Voyage started in late 2018. We would like to invite you to consider a "fast track" Voyage, especially if you would like to work at a higher level on the Biography Team. If you’re interested, choose a profile ‘’’from your own watchlist’’’ that you have completed to the best of your ability and compare it to the Voyage Biography Standards. If your profile is at Level 2 or better, include a link to the profile in your response to this check-in for a “fast track” review.

We would also like to invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. (When you request to join our GoogleGroup, please be sure to include your Wiki ID). Neither is required; we also use Profile_Improvement in G2G for Project announcements. You will find more information on the GoogleGroup.

We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project and WikiTree. The Project’s mission is to:

Make profiles beautiful! We clean up messy biography sections and sources, and try to set standards for attractive, useful, and well-written biographies, starting with those we manage.

We know you’re working on profiles *smile* We would like to hear about successes you’ve had toward the Project’s goals. We would also appreciate any feedback you might have to help us improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or privately via private message to either of us.

Hi Shannon, I don't know if you saw the post about thanking those who sign the Honor Code, but this task is already covered by members of the Greeter's Project and we don't want to over do the messages. I'm going to remove this task for non-Greeters. Thanks! Emma
Hello Shannon,

Thank you Shannon, your kind comments on my page not only bring a smile, they also urge me forward.
Hi Shannon, thanks for your comments on my profile page, I was not aware there was appreciation team either, but it is good to know and I value the feedback.

I planned to do a lot more this month but time has been limited. Regards Mike

It's a good feeling to feel appreciated. I can't spend as much time as I would like on genealogy, but everything I add is well researched and backed by sources I trust.

Thank You Rosemary

Thanks Shannon for posting the thank you note on my contributions to wikitree. It does make one feel good that someone thinks enough of his work to thank him for it.
