Historical Order (approximately)

  • Born at St. Mary's Hospital in Manhattan, Kansas 1947
  • Graduated from Manhattan High School 1965
  • Freshman year at Ottawa University in Ottawa, Kansas
  • Remaining years, and graduated, from Kansas State University in my home town (Manhattan, Kansas) in 1969 with a BS in Science - focus on Chemistry
  • Graduated from Colgate-Rochester Divinity School in Rochester, New York 1971 with an MA in Religious Studies - focus on Old Testament and Philosophy
  • Worked as a gasoline station attendant, then part owner, in and near Grand Canyon, Arizona for a year and a half
  • Teaching assistant for chemistry labs at Kansas State University for a year
  • Moved to Seattle, Washington and obtained an MS in Chemistry from the University of Washington
  • Graduated with a PhD in Inorganic Chemistry from the UW in 1980
  • Married in 1978 in Seattle, Washington - still happily married to same (and only) wonderful woman
  • After about 10 years of marriage we decided we wanted a family - so from 1990 to 1998 we adopted 7 children (4 boys and 3 girls = "we were not bored")
  • My work history is in my Bio on LinkedIn


  • Started doing genealogy in High School, but was not very good about getting sources other than "as told to me by my grandmother", etc. but I collected several photos and Bible pages from relatives (primarily Grandmothers).
  • Between then and now there were many gaps in my pursuit of my family lines, but it was never totally forgotten. A more serious approach to sources happened after graduation from UW - especially since a US Archive is located in Seattle fairly close to my first 'home' - which led to spending a lot of time reading microfilm records.
  • A major gap in my pursuit of genealogy was during the child-rearing years of 1990 - 2016 --> child rearing is a full time job, even for only 1 or 2 children
  • I am now retired and trying to dig through old info to get back on track. WikiTree has been a great motivator to freely share all the information I have collected over the years. (I would hate to have it all just disappear by going into a trash bin when I die. Even quasi-disappearing into a local library is almost as bad.)


  • First-hand information entered by David Sloat - based on birth certificate, school records, known job history and other clear memories
  • My SLOAT/SLOTE/SLOT/etc. GEDCOM database is on RootsWeb db=desloat (this link goes to my Pedigree page). For the original SLOAT/SLOT/... ancestor see my entry for Jan Piertersen Slot on RootsWeb (this is the same as Jan Pietersz Slodt on WikiTree) but I have not linked to him yet - even though my Y-DNA links to him I still need to break through my brick wall to extend my pedigree to him).

  • David Sloat: Family Tree DNA Y-DNA Test 67 markers, haplogroup I-M253, FTDNA kit #483404
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • David Sloat: Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test Full Sequence, haplogroup H1ae3a, FTDNA kit #483404
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with David:
