Family History

My interest in finding out my family history started in Mrs. Odom's class at Harlem Middle School. The assignment was find out the origin of your surname and recreate your coat of arms. I found a Shockey in the English origins but could never find a coat of arms. So I created a shield with a lightning bolt hitting a key - "Shoc-key". *wink* It wasn't until years later in 2003 that I really started my family database to find out that Shockey was the Americanized version of my surname.
I now enjoy meeting all my cousins no matter how distant. I've started three groups on Facebook one for my Shockey cousins, one for my Sperry's, and another for just my maternal side. I've also attended 5 Shockey Family Reunions (as of 2016) and looking forward to many more. I'll be helping with the Shockey Family Fellowship Inc. website and hoping to one day be on the board. I'm also helping with the Dyess Family website and starting an incorporation for that family group. Attended my first Dyess Reunion on 29 Oct 2016.

Digital Afterlife

13 Feb 2017
In the event of my untimely demise I want to be sure that none of my hard work on WikiTree ends up having to be deleted. While I fully intend to be around to manage all my profiles for the next 50 years or so, in the event of my sudden death I hereby give permission for all of my private profiles to be transferred to any of my family members or to any of the other wonderful WikiTreers who have collaborated with me. My own personal profile will be left to an active family member and/or Emma, Misty, or Kaite to tend and weed. I'll also have an obituary set up on an unlisted "free-space" to be updated, made public and linked to my profile after my passing. Charlotte Shockey's Obituary

Thank you! Glad to be here! Your message to me was quite timely - I was literally just then trying to figure out how to join/follow/tag the Brewer ONS.

I don’t know if we share any relation or not yet. I received my DNA kit today, so we’ll know more in 6-8 weeks!

Hi Charlotte,

Thank you for your message. Im fairly new to this and have had a very hard time finding my grandfather, Very little is known about him as my grandmother didn't speak much about him. She said he was killed in the war, although I have never seen the marriage certificate, other family members said that the had. But the document is lost now and those relatives are deceased. My mother was born in Kokomo Ind April 22, 1943. My grandmother never remarried and wore her wedding ring until she passed away in 1976. It seemed talking about him was too painful for her. Any assistance I can get with this would be much appreciated! Even more then you'll ever know. If there is any kind of information I can provide, I'm willing to do so. But as I said little is known about him.

Hi Charlotte,

I've recently started updating on my Tree and I had to get permission which I did. My problem is I need to send some documents to WikiTree and I don't have any idea how. I've been at this quite a bit today and still haven't been able to figure it out. It is probably something simple and as usual I make it more difficult than it should. Any pointers would be much appreciated>

Thank you, Edward

Hi, Charlotte! Nice to meet you. I am still very new to this, but I tested my DNA on GEDmatch Genesis and got two shared segments when I compared it with your father's DNA test kit. I was a little shocked it wasn't the Brewer side; my grandmother's grandmother's surname was Brewer.

I will go over your message and add what you suggested this afternoon.

Hello Charlotte,

I am hoping you can assist me adopting an orphaned profile of one of my ancestors. I have tried clicking the "adopt this profile" but when I do, it states "the profile is not public so it cannot be adopted". Can you help with this issue? TIA

Just wanted to follow up on your welcome note to me, and my response. I did join the Brewer Study Project. I have also searched my files and I find no evidence of any Shockey connection., Sorry.

Hello Charlotte

Thanks for the message. Thanks for the information. I think that WikiTree is pretty much straightforward. Unfortunately, we still don't have too much genealogists in Brazil. I have been talking with some relatives in order to build our tree further. All the best! Marcelo

Hi Charlotte. For some reason you added me as manager for Sarah Gardiner-218. I know nothing about this person except that she probably didn't exist. This unsourced and orphaned profile should be repurposed for another Gardiner profile. The only source given in the original uploaded gedcom was from Ancestry, was incorrect, and is no longer active. You might mention this in the Gardiner ONP. Best, Angela
