Categories: Smith Researchers.
Retired big-city public librarian & certified archivist with a specialty in history & genealogy. Active family researcher since c.1960, intermittent teacher of adult-ed genealogy courses, past editor for ten years of the Louisiana Genealogical Register, official journal of the Louisiana Genealogical Society. I was also part of the team that created The Master Genealogist in the early 1990s (behind the scenes at CompuServe, where I was an Asst. Sysop). And I've been one of the volunteer managers at WeRelate.org since its establishment.
I was an Army brat, so I grew up everywhere. Born in Toledo (not my fault), spent all my working life in north Texas. Now retired and living in south Louisiana.
Among other projects, I've spent 40+ years researching in detail the history and settlers of Old Red River County, Texas, which was a spin-off of my M.A. thesis.

Also you don't have any sources listed on your profile. We are required to have sources. I'm sure you have many you could cite according to your bio and dna. Feel free to message me.

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.
Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.
If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.
Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.
