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.

Hello and thank you for your welcome. I am very excited to get started on my tree. I have done some tags, I don’t know very much, and I have volunteered (again I don’t know much) Would you be the one that confirms me? I may have missed the confirmation email?

Thanks, Shirley. I got a little bit lost on the tags and comments. I thought I had done it correctly, but it wouldn't let me continue.

Hi Shirley, I'm new to this site, but have been researching my birthfather's line on a different site. I have hit a roadblock and could sure use some assistance if you're able. My 5th great-grandfather is Alexander B. McGregor, born 1755, in Aberfoyle, Perthshire, Scotland. I can get no further other than his father might be George McGregor, born 1730.

Hi Shirley,

Thank you for all of your help. I will hopefully find my way around here without too much trouble. This is a really amazing thing that is going on here, did someone start this as an individual or was it like a group effort to get it going? Thanks again, Martha
