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.

Hi Shirley: I have multiple 15 generation pedigree charts which I am reviewing with all the new technology available. I am willing to share. My mother's side goes back to several Mayflower along with early Dutch, German Families. Father's side, mostly Irish - Ancestor came off the boat, served 3 years in Civil War and became a citizen. No info before that!

Hi Shirley: getting back into my genealogy following up on dead ends. Had a huge computer based genealogy which became corrupted so I can't just link and give all my info. I am waiting for my DNA to also verify my earlier results.

Hi Shirley, thank you so much for your message and welcome! I'm sure I will have questions but a little too new to WikiTree to even know what to ask. After I've gotten a little more acquainted with how things work and how I can fit in with volunteering, I'll seek your counsel!

Hi Shirley,

Thanks for the message. I'm currently going through my family history book, immortalising it on Wikitree. It'll be great for everyone to see our interactive family tree once I'm done! I've found one likely positive link on the site so far which is just brilliant :-)

Cheers Mikey
