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 Mags to tend and weed and... (I plan to haunt the WikiTree servers once my body has left it's earthly bonds).
I was born and grew up in an inland suburb (read boring) of San Diego, California; it is called La Mesa and the neighbouring area is El Cajon ;). I taught myself to play the piano and read music at a young age. I played piano almost every day until I left my mother's house, I also sang; and for a while played violin. I left La Mesa with the very first opportunity that presented itself and moved to Los Angeles; ca. 1985 which was high time for goth clubs, which I enjoyed thoroughly. I then moved to San Francisco; two weeks before the big quake of 1989. Luckily, I was staying with friends on high ground. Whilst there, I learnt massage (shiatsu and swedish). It was whilst studying shiatsu that I realised I had a natural feeling for yin/yang and the five elements. I wanted to study traditional Chinese medicine, so set out to learn Mandarin with traditional characters. This pursuit took me to Santa Cruz, California; Eugene, Oregon; and London (SOAS). I wasn't rich enough to carry on my studies in London so had to drop the course. I also realised that to study TCM, one really needed to go to either Vietnam or Korea as the Cultural Revolution purged anyone out of China who had these skills. Also, to become certified in the USA (or at least in California) one had to convert all these concepts into science (which has nothing to do with TCM). So, I gave it up and fell back on my computer knowledge which also came naturally. I ended up being an IT Manager in advertising agencies; specialised in print workflow. I am now retired due to health issues which is why I have so much time for genealogy, which I am passionate about. I currently reside in Eutin, Ostholstein, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

I saw your change Olofsdotter-1379 of surname I have a feeling that surnames in Sweden 1800 was not so fixed. I have heard about Swedish people coming to school 1910 and the teacher asked what is your surname and the child didnt know so then the teacher called her Olofsdotter because father was Olof....
My feeling is that its a moving target and if you find a document signed by a person then use that ..... I guess we will never know ;-(
