Genealogy has been a passion since 1992. I love to connect with relatives and help others with their research.

More recently, I have developed an avid interest in utilizing DNA as a tool to prove familial relationships. I strongly encourage others who have tested to upload to GEDmatch as I have done (T498657).

Please feel free to message me if you believe we share ancestors or feel I might be able to help your research in some way.

I see that we are 14th cousins (Uncertain). If you have the time, I could use some help understanding how to utilize my Family Tree & DNA test results. Thanks

Thank you. Christiana was a great grandmother. I have removed Wright from my Ancestry family tree. I am still learning about sources.

Welcome to the County Kerry Sub-Project!

As you may have heard, WikiTree is having a source-a-thon Oct 4 - Oct 7. Whether or not you decide to participate in it is up to you. If you want to help the county Kerry project, it would be great if you could put the unsourced Kerry category on any Kerry profiles you come across that need sources. Thank you!

? Can you let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project and which team(s) you’d like to join. Please also let me know your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group or confirm you are already a member of the google group.

Many thanks,

Thanks for the comment Jana. I used the supplied defaults to clean up the Great Britain entries. Ellen has said it best below.

Thanks for your note, Jana.

No argument that that United States didn't exist before 1776! However, that doesn't make Pennsylvania part of Great Britain before 1776.

The Province of Pennsylvania was a colony of Great Britain, but it was not part of Great Britain, which is an island that includes England, Wales, and Scotland. The place names in Wikitree are supposed to the be the place names that were recognized/used at the time of the events we are describing. In the case of pre-1776 Pennsylvania, the highest-level geopolitical entity to be identified in the place name fields would be "Province of Pennsylvania" (or a variant such as "Pennsylvania Colony" or "Pennsylvania" -- usage seems to vary).

Thank you for your contributions on the Trump family. I managed to locate the indexed record from your source page. the sources have been updated with the indexed records and the link you added is marked as "image of record".

It's so nice to collaborate with other WikiTreers. The index records were transcribed with FRUMP as the surname. Good work finding that record which may not have showed up doing a search for Trump.

Jana, do you happen to speak any other languages? Would you check out our languages template and add it to your biography? For example you might add

{{ Languages | en | ro-2 | he-1 }}

to the top of your biography if you speak English natively, intermediate Rumanian and basic Hebrew, or you could use de-4 to specify near-native German or ru-2 for intermediate Russian, and so forth up to ten languages.

It really helps to know who speaks all the different languages used on WikiTree! If there is a language you speak that is missing from our categories, I would be happy to add it. If you only speak English, you're very welcome to use this text to make that clear:

{{ Languages | en }}
