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.
Shirley Dalton's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Shirley or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA.
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
Shirley (Strutton) Dalton:
Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test HVR1 and HVR2, haplogroup H, FTDNA kit #426397
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Shirley:

Hi Shirley I started my tree in 2016 and in October we lost our daughter, and January 2017 my husband had a stroke. We both ended up in the hospital then rehab me for 4 months and he 6 months, seems life has a way of interrupting things. Paul is now in long term care because I could not care for him. I am hopefully able to get back to my genealogy. I am going to review the tutorials. My question is How to upload ged- com? I uploaded to Heritage and it duplicated my entries making my file so large I had to pay instead of using the free account, now I cannot afford the account, so my tree is for everyone except me. I don't want to make that mistake again. If you can give me tips on the how to, I would very much appreciate it. I will be working on how to enter my sources for now. Thanks
Thank-you Shirley for adding me as a full member. Once I have got my bearings and worked out how to navigate my way around the site, I hope to be able to offer others details they may be looking for. X
Hi Shirley. Thanks for your message. What I'd like to change is the de_la_Rosa-91 username in Wikitree. When I go to Edit profile I don't see the field to enter a new username like "jjbdlr" which is what I use on Ancestry , GENi.com, and MyHeritage.com
Thank you for letting me come on board. Yes, it is possible that we are related. I have uploaded a gedcom file but it may take a while to come online. I have followed the Stone and Cantrell lines back to the 1600s so have a look at those two families.
Hi Shirley, thanks for the welcome message. I was wondering what the confidentiality controls are for information shared on wikitree? That is, how can I control whether specific info is shared, and with whom?
Hi Shirley, Thank you for the Welcome message. I still however, cannot edit any of my information. Do you know how long it takes to get confirmation so that I can begin editing? Also, I have uploaded a current family tree but the information is not presenting itself. I really don't want to have to type in all of my family information again. Any suggestions? Thanks, Shannon Hayes.
