Biography

Status of Ancestry Information

The table (table format at Space:Table of Known Ancestors) below summarizes the extent of the information on my ancestry that is included in Wikitree. For the ten generations previous to mine, it shows the number of possible ancestors, the number of these ancestors who are currently identified/documented included in WikiTree, and the percentage of the possible ancestors who are identified here. Cumulative (overall) totals are also provided. Generations 9 and 10 are not up to date.

"Identified" ancestors include some with unknown last names at birth. It also includes some questionable identifications and people that I have not researched.

*There are several duplicates (people who appear on multiple branches of the tree) in these generations (see "Endogamy" section below for a list). These people are counted more than once in the numbers for both possible ancestors and identified ancestors. Cumulative numbers of distinct individuals in my WikiTree-documented ancestry are: 340 at generation 8, 560 at generation 9, and 914 at generation 10.

Endogamy

Autosomal DNA matching with me may be complicated by the number of ancestors who are represented in my lineage more than once. These distant ancestors' DNA may be somewhat amplified in my DNA. Also, if the same ancestor appears on different branches of my family tree, that may reduce the chance of triangulating a particular DNA segment to a particular common ancestor.

Identified ancestors appearing in multiple lines of my ancestry include (this list is not yet complete):

Generation 8

Maternal
Paternal

Generation 9

Maternal
Paternal

Generation 10

Maternal
Paternal

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 Occurs once in Generation 8 and once in Generation 9
  2. 2.0 2.1 2.2 2.3 2.4 2.5 2.6 2.7 Occurs once in Generation 9 and once in Generation 10

Research on early ancestors can be both richly rewarding and severely challenging.
US_HISTORY
Almost everything I do here is in the scope of the US History project, and I'm currently Project Leader.

  • Ellen Smith: Mitochondrial DNA Test Other, haplogroup H1e
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Ellen:

Ellen,

Lilly was my grandmother. She actually died in Cookeville, Tennessee while visiting my Aunt Margaret. My folks had her remains shipped to Hillvale Church in Anderson County, Tennessee. At the time of her death she was living in Heiskell, Knox County, Tennessee. She was interned in Hillvale Chemetery located in Andersonville, Anderson County, Tennessee. I hope this helps.

Regarding https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Bean-2428

Could you please enter a "Researcher's Notes" describing how you determined that the profile may be effected by fraud? Thankyou.

Nevermind Ellen. I see I referenced it in my Notes but not in my sources. I won't remove the tag but the sources are NOT from media research they are vital records and census records. Thanks for letting me know about this potential problem.

Hi Ellen.

Thanks for the edits on David Knox's profile. I have no problem with the added category but I would like to know your source for linking David Knox to this. I have searched the internet and the only hit I get is the Wikitree category itself. Nothing shows up for David Knox and the Media Research Bureau, Washington, DC. Could you please provide me a link? Thanks, Caryl
