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,

Thanks for checking on me. I need to go back to the intro, which I did not do. I need to do so. Let me do that and I will get back to you with any questions. Thanks again for your offer. Holly

OK, that's great. Shirley. Will do. Thanks again. Elayne

Thank you for your very prompt reply Shirley. I tried it and it worked perfectly. At some point I will have a question about DNA. I had stated that I was aware of a DNA connection but I received a message that this was taken down as I hadn't proved it. It gave some 'how to' links but I could not get them to work. I have written a family history and it took me a full footnote to explain the connection. I think for now I will just concentrate on making new entries. Thank you. Elayne

Thank you for your follow-up Shirley. It's been very slow and somewhat confusing as I don't have a lot of time to keep working on it all. A cousin of mine had already added a lot of information but I am trying to add more details. I made a mistake in entering a marriage date (just the month) and now I can't find a way to edit that part of the entry. If you can advise that would be great. Thank you. Elayne

Hi Shirley. It's been a slow go on this site since I've had to enter all of the info myself from other sites. I joined with the hope of completing my father's side of the family tree. I got stuck at my 4th gen great grandfather. But other then that I guess it's going peachy.

Shirley, thanks for contacting me. I have no clue how this all works and I guess I signed up hoping to get some info. I know very little about my family and I don't know where to begin.
