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.
So I can follow the prompts in G2G
A sub-project of the United States 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).

Hi Lucy -- It's entirely possible that Jacob Staub was born before 1815 and that that record's for him. I don't have much information on him beyond that he married Katherine Cronise, they had three children in Ohio in the 1840s, and she eventually divorced him.

Thank you for your suggestion on my 811 Examples page. I think it's a great idea to add how to convert old Ancestry links on the page. I will hunt down the G2G post and get the information added.

Hi Lucy,

I just wanted to let you know that a new Military Challenge will be starting up tonight and will run until December 10. This one will be a lot simpler and use the Challenge Tracker, so no more messy points system :) Here's the free space page: If you're interested in participating, you might want to go look back at the profiles you worked on in the last challenge and see if any of them still need a Military Service section in the Biography. Here's the old G2G thread:
