I am a great-grandmother with a passion for genealogy and history. When I was young, I wanted to be an archaeologist. That went away when marriage and children arrived. Although I still keep up with what's new in the field.

By education and career, I became an accountant (retired now). Maybe that's why I still like to clean up messes in genealogy. Everything has to be fact-based and accurate. The books need to balance.

Have been working on my family history for over forty years. I was really delighted when the internet came along. The resources available now from my kitchen workspace and computer were totally out of reach for most of my life. With so much data and online documentation available for the asking, I am continually amazed that people don't make use of it. They still rely on the work of other people and pass along un-documented, often inaccurate "family trees" as if they were gospel.

I'm still trying to get all my own research added to WikiTree, but I am often sidetracked by another mess to clean up. So I will be at it for a long time (hopefully) yet.

Thanks for the note. The page was helpful. Q: How do I cite paper research in my possession that was completed by my maternal grandmother?

Shirley, I got the following reply to the match - Charles Stoddard has confirmed you as a new member of Fayette Stoddard's Trusted List.

For help see how to use WikiTree or ask a question in our genealogist-to-genealogist Q&A forum.

The navigation goes from my wife Linda->Thelma Hewitt->Clarice Mae Stoddard-> her father, Fayette J. Stoddard, who is the person I wanted linked in as well as his ancestors.

Sorry, I just don't know where to go next.

Hello, Shirley, Thank you for the info. I have accumulated binders of my family history and am still trying to find my direct paternal branch in Hanover County, VA. in the mid 1700's. I will probably be contacting you with questions-thanks again.
