Followed Tags
Lucy is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
There is a 1776 project that honors people who were involved in the early history of the United States of America, from the Boston Tea Party through the War for Independence to the ratification of the United States Constitution. You may want to read more about this on the 1776 Project page. It tells you how to add one of the 1776 templates to the profile to indicate if the person was a military veteran or provided other patriotic service.
A sub-project of the History Project.
Following for the African-American Project.
Angela Catania was my paternal grandmother. She emigrated from Sicily with her widowed father and two sisters.
Connectors work on those unconnected families and profiles and research to source and connect them so we're all one tree, rather than many separate ones. If you like making connections and helping others with their family research, the Connectors project is the place for you.
Keeping the tree healthy by fixing database errors. Members work together to use tools that seek out errors on our site.
This is in beta test. If you use GEDmatch you can drag and drop to map out your DNA matches.
Marianna Ingrassia was my great-grandmother from Sicily.
El Latin American Roots Project está abierto a cualquier persona que tenga un interés en la historia o genealogía de las 20 naciones de América Latina. The Latin American Roots project is the place for anyone who has an interest in the history or genealogy of the 20 Latin American nations.
The Puritan Great Migration project is one of the big projects on Wikitree. Like most projects, there are qualifications for inclusion in the PGM project. A profile qualifies for the PGM project tag/template if the person: was born in England (mostly; we have some from Holland, Ireland and Scotland) emigrated to New England between 1620 and 1640.
My g-great-grandmother was Clara Ream. She was born in Reading, PA in 1850. Her father was Andrew J. Ream, but I cannot connect him to other Reams. Major brick wall.
This is my Last Name at Birth (LNAB).

Great find RE: Abram Foot. Does the NY state census specifically clarify that he's an adopted son? Thanks!

RE: Charles Mitchell (interested, since I live in Washington!) Was there another source that linked him with the 54th? Nothing is mentioned of the regiment in the article, so I wasn't sure.

Re: Holland-6157 - Thank you for your input. I still have information and numerous sources concerning the life story of Spearman "Kemp" Holland which I had planned to add to his profile. May I continue with my planned bio using in-line sourcing, or must I now use the type just added?

RE: Barcus-139 / Ezekiel Barens. There's a ton of surname issues in Emilio - including ubiquitous literacy issues during the Civil War - so definitely possible. I double-checked the roster and there's no Ezekiel Barens so there's a very good chance it's the right man! Would love to see the source data if you have a chance to share :) Thank you, Lucy!

If Skipper is her married name, then she was married twice. Charles Benjamin Jordan is definitely her husband.

you sound interested in the Native American profiles and able to find and use sources related to them. Want to join the project? We could use more folks like you.

Thanks for your offer to help with the Salem Witchcraft project. I've been told such a group already exists - although I couldn't find it until it I was given a link to it. So, I will delete the space I made when I figure out how to.

I think I'm pretty well set with all the tangled up family ties, although they do get confusing. I'm a descendant of Ann Foster, as well as Phebe (Wildes) Day. I'm also descended from John Proctor's sister Sarah (Proctor) Dodge.

I'll be interested in reading what's been posted to the site already up and running. I' have and have read numerous books on the subject, although there seem to be new ones being published frequently. I haven't kept up with those.
