I have been researching my genealogy on and off for over 20 years. I am very excited to utilize Wikitree and share my information with other family members who are connected to our ancestry. If you are a researcher and have stumbled across a mutual relative by internet search, I would love to encourage you to register for this fantastic site and add your information as well. I am also more than happy to relinquish managing a profile of your ancestor if you would like to take over, and add you as a profile manager to common direct ancestors. One tree - many collaborators; focus on quality profiles - not quantity.
Current Wikitree "project": [Cieplice, Jaroslaw, Galicia, Austria] . I am transcribing records from the village where my Rusyn/Ruthenian and Polish ancestors lived.
I've been able to convince cousins to join Wikitree and add their information. I know the following can help any user and it is just my advice on formatting (there is so much more out there): Space:Sonczalla-Driggs_Wikitree_Formatting
On occasion I have helped adoptees or those who do not know a parent find their relatives through DNA application to genealogy. So far I have assisted several people in making their connections, and I have to say that it is such a blessing to be a part of the experience! I also would like to state that DNA doesn't lie, and these people who have been forced to keep secrets should never be burdened with something that was never their fault to begin with. I have quite a bit of compassion for them and their plight in knowing their genetic genealogy.
Aside from my genealogy hobby, I was formerly a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) for 8 years. I also am an artist and am training in mixed martial arts. If you have come across any records I have transcribed for Paulding County, Georgia UsGenWeb (or anywhere else on the internet); you have my full permission to use them at your discretion. Transcriptions were done to solely to help other genealogists searching for the information, never for personal gain.
"I am bound to them, though I cannot look into their eyes, or hear their voices. I honor their history. I cherish their lives. I will tell their story. I will remember them."
"In history only some people are important. In genealogy everyone is important."
