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 the N.A. badge, will do what i can to help, I seem to have a knack for sources, so most likely will be my focus to just find sources, even temp ones that may lead to more pertinent sources for Native Americans

Hi Shirley, and thank you for your greeting. This WikiTree site is new to me but I am sure once I familiarize myself with it, I will be pleasantly surprised at what I discover.

Thank you again, B Paterson

Hi Shirley!

Thank you for the offer of help. I think I'm doing okay for the moment. I have my hands full already as a co-admin of the Hatcher Families Genealogy Association web site and database and of the Hatcher genealogical DNA project. My hope for wikitree is that it might facilitate that work, as well as work on my personal tree, and with my personal DNA matches.

Very best regards,

I seem to be stuck. I have tried to add some ancestors by way of GEDCOM from my Family TreeMaker file. When I added some family mambers earlier, I think I just clicked "add" on the gedcomcompare report and everyting was fine. Now, I click "add" and I'm sent to a process that I'm not sure is correct. When I tried to add, I was sent to an earlier ancestor to add as a family member. When I did that, it appears as if none of the sourcing that is a part of the gedcom file is being utilized. Do I have to add all that in individually and manually? Thanks for your help! Ray

Shirley, I am not technically inclined, I added a link on the Michigan group on the Native American Project. I do not know how to create a "title" for the link - it just came out [1], can you tell me how, thanks.
