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

I want to help get this new project off the ground.
ANNOUNCEMENTS
So I won't miss G2G announcements of new features or changes in policy.
CATEGORIZATION
Categorization of profiles is an important topic.
CONNECTORS
I find myself searching G2G for this tag sometimes, so I'd better follow it.
DATA_DOCTORS
Following activity on robot-detected data issues.
DNA
A 23andMe DNA test got me hooked into tracking more ancestors than I ever thought I'd care to know about.
DUTCH_ROOTS
I've enjoyed discovering the Netherlands roots of some of my New Netherland ancestors
G2G
As a G2G moderator, I need to follow the tag.
GEDCOMPARE

GERMAN_ROOTS
I have German roots (Palatine immigrants) and I read German.
IMPROVEMENTS
Who doesn't like to see improvements?
LEADERS
Need to be aware of posts tagged for Leaders.
MERGES
Merging of duplicate profiles -- and protecting profiles that look alike but aren't duplicates -- is an important topic for discussion in G2G.
NEW_NETHERLAND
Nearly 1/4 of my ancestry derives from New Netherland. I've learned a lot from other Wikitreers about the history & genealogy of this unique place and time. I'm serving as a Project Coordinator.
PALATINE_MIGRATION
I have Palatine immigrant ancestors in New York and Pennsylvania.
PGM
A wee bit more than half of my ancestral lines trace through colonial New England, and many of the "immigrant ancestors" arrived in the Puritan Great Migration from 1621 to 1640. I'm an NEHGS member and I've enjoyed researching this population.
PRE-1500
I can help fix errors or resolve other problems with early profiles.
PRE-1700
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.


DNA Tested
Ellen Smith's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Ellen or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA. Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • Ellen Smith: Mitochondrial DNA Test Other, haplogroup H1e
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Ellen:
  • Ellen Smith: 23andMe, GEDmatch M162952 + Autosomal DNA Test, GEDmatch EP9026105

I like your Honor Tucker style edits, Ellen! Hopefully someday we will get to the point where all our PGM profiles are sufficiently sourced out and complete that we can focus on improving their drafting.
