Away for a few days. Will be back on WikiTree on Wednesday, 27 June.


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.

Thank you Shirley for your message. I have only just worked out how to see it online in my profile - then to say thank you and reply. Slow start for me until I see how things work. Ha ha.

Hi Shirley. Thanks in advance for your help. When I downloaded my raw data from 23 and me this past Monday the 4th - I got an ID that begins with “H”. On the website it says my kit isn’t found. It also said 23andMe should have an M as a prefix. Also that it could be a few days before it is uploaded. It has been 4 days. Is this typical or is there something that I need to fix?

Thanks Shirley. I started a long time ago like you without internet. With the documents that can find now, it may be easier, but it goes to infinity. Have a nice day !
