Followed Tags
Dan is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
1776
I have many ancestors who fought on the American side for our freedom. All American participants are worthy of rememberance and honor.
DUTCH_ROOTS
The Dutch probably surpass the Germans in the meticulousness of their early records. The project staff are very helpful and knowlegable.
ENGLAND
Mostly from the 18th century or before. Many of mine came from there to what was to become the USA as colonists.
GERMAN_ROOTS
I believe that this category applies to all profiles having German ethnic roots, now and before. This would entail a linguistic question, rather than a national one.
GUIWITS
All variants of this German name: Geywitz, Gaiwitz, Giwitts, Givitt, ect. now have my own one name study under this name, to deal with the riot of variations caused by various spellings of one German name.
HOPKINS
I am looking for Leah Hopkins, who married a Howard in 1700's Rhode Island.
HOWARD
My line came from London to western Rhode Island in the early 1700's. Its members in the USA are fully documented by a book up until 1900.
HOWK
is a German name meaning "Hawk." Spelling variations include Houck. My ancestors arrived in N. America around 1850 and lived first in Kentucky, and later in Indiana.
HUGUENOT
Have several of these in Virginia and New York colonies as ancestors.
IRISH_ROOTS
See Larkin, below.
LARKIN
An Irish brickwall, stuck in mid-19th century Kentucky, USA. Name means "Fierce" in Irish.
MICHAELSON
My line came from Norway, first appears in Minnesota around 1860. A brickwall. I am convinced that someone needs to start a "Norweigian Roots" project, as Norweigians present huge problems for genealogists who do not speak Norweigian.
NEW_NETHERLAND
New York, mostly! Well-documented in colonial times, when researching, one must deal with Dutch, English, French, and German spelling variations of names, which can be surprising if one does not know these languages.
NORTH_CAROLINA
I have created this new sub-project with the assistance of the US History Project Leader, Paula J. As leader of this sub-project, I invite anyone interested in the history of North Carolina to participate in the sub-project and create a place for all wikitreers interested in North Carolina's history and people to learn more about them.
OUTLAWS
I added Horn-3826. Being outlawed myself, I am interested in the topic.
PGM
Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut and what eventually became Maine. Samuel Gorton is my favorite, a very early precourser of what would become "American" thought.
SOUTHERN_COLONIES
Earliest beginnings in Virginia. Most of my Southern lines came through there, most heading south and west after a few generations.
SPARKMAN
Immigrated very early from England to VA, but most US Sparkmans trace back to NC ancestors who probably came via VA. Now with its own One Name Study.
VIRGINIA
I have many European ancestors who immigrated to Virginia in the early to mid-1600's, one of whom qualifies me to be a member of the Jamestown Society.
WITCH_TRIALS
Direct descendant of Thomas Putnam, prominent accuser at the Salem, Massacusetts colony Witch Trials of the 1690's.

Hi, Dan. Like you, I have Teerpenning ancestry in my distant past, and I've been perplexed by the notion that the first known Teerpenning adopted a different name from his siblings. The article I cited is online at https://www.americanancestors.org/databases/new-netherland-connections/image?rId=143191192&volumeId=12601&pageName=11 (probably members only). The task of describing it in the WikiTree profile(s) has been on my to-do list ever since I discovered it late one night. It is a convincing analysis.

Dan, when you detect an obvious typo, as you did at Le_Roy-589, please don't think that the PPP status of the profile means you need to notify all of the profile managers (the effect of a profile message) to request a correction. Just fix it -- and explain the change in your edit summary.

Hi Dan!

Please feel free to join our DRP challenge next weekend! It is our special Annual Liberty Challenge. Here the invitation:

Hey Hello!

How do you pass on freedom?

The DRP organizes our Annual Liberation Day Challenge again. Please join us!

Challenges are mainly meant to get to know each other better and to have fun with each other.

Again this year, we try again to give great resistance heroes a nice profile on WT, because they deserve it, also to provide them with ancestors and we also try to connect them to "our" WT.

Would you like to help? You are very welcome !

Hi, Dan. I appreciate the sense of humor you displayed on your profile and your followed-tags list, and I see it carried through in the absence of pretension I observe in some of the profiles you've created.

PS - We're allegedly 9th cousins...
