I have been researching my genealogy on and off for over 20 years. I am very excited to utilize Wikitree and share information with other researchers. One tree - many collaborators; focus on quality profiles - not quantity. If I am the profile manager of one of your ancestors, please do not hesitate to ask to be a co-manager or to email me with edits/corrections.
On occasion I have helped adoptees or those who do not know a parent find their relatives through DNA application to genealogy. Typically during genetic genealogy research, one must inspect all DNA match groupings to find the common ancestor between them. Then research all the descendants to find the marriage between groupings. When a marriage is not found, there is either an adoption or question of paternity on that tree. Mysteries unravel and relatives need to learn to accept that those who came before them were not the vision they once had of them. DNA doesn't lie.
Aside from my genealogy hobby, I was formerly a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) for 8 years, trained in MMA for several years and dabble in various mediums of art. If you have come across any records I have transcribed 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.

My current focus is on the Sączawa Surname Study, the root spelling of my maiden name "Sonczalla" and my Polish lineage. My hope to collect as much information on individuals with this surname pre-1900 and break down some brick walls of my own.
Cieplice, Jaroslaw, Galicja, Austria Resource Page: I have been working on transcribing various records from this village for the past couple years. My goal was to find all the interconnections throughout the generations and to bring as much information as I can to 1918, making it possible for others to find their relatives.
I have faced a multitude of questions from Wikitree users about their Ruthenian/Ukrainian heritage and ancestry. I felt the need to adopt the Ukrainian Resource Page so as to help others navigate Ukranian history and border changes.
