Charlotte is also still close friends with Da Cru from Harlem High School. As well as several of her 1st and distant cousins, dance friends, and Sarah Tracy (her wine partner).
Charlotte also has been doing photography since she was very young first using her mother's Kodak Instamatic on trips. She taught herself what she knows through books and the few classes she had. She enjoys creating interesting images through composite which she found through doing a 365 Day Self Portraiture project that she feel short on but enjoyed none the less. She also used her photography skills in several productions of TV Shows that never were shown on TV. She received the 34th Annual Telly Award - Bronze Entertainment for "Georgia Boy's Grits N Glory" teaser as Art Director, Graphic Design, and Still Photography. The other shows she worked on were "Honky Tonkin USA" and "Kingz of Swing".

Charlotte has many creative outlets from creating jewelry, to painting, to graphic designs.
Charlotte enjoys wine. She loves trying new wines and rating them on Vivino. At the end of 2014 she started brewing her own wines at home hoping to eventually start her own vineyard in the Winchester, Virginia area (if she can win the lotto).

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 Eowyn and Julie 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

Did I say thank you for the Adoption Angels note? Did I say I do want to be involved with this group? If I did, excuse me because my poor brain can't keep up with everything I'm doing. If not, hello, and yes, count me in.

Hello Charlotte,

Thank you for your kind welcome! I am very interested in your project that links FamilyTreeDNA and wikitree. I visited the link but can't find the information on how to link my FamilyTreeDNA genealogy information to wikitree. Can you tell me more? I have a lot of my tree on FTDNA and can't get it off, but if there's a route that wikitree and FTDNA are collaborating, I'm excited to hear about it!

Thank you! --Katherine
