I can't remember when I wasn't interested in my ancestors. My grandmother, Florence Burdge Stuewe, would tell me I was related to President Hays, Daniel Boone, and others. She also said that our Burdge family were Pilgrims (which I interpreted as Mayflower). My other grandmother, Sallie Dodson Armstrong, said one of her uncles (or great-uncles) did soft-shoe for the Queen of England (meaning Queen Victoria). My grandpa, Donald Armstrong said his relatives were from Scotland and snuck into the country because they were wanted men for being horse-thieves. If you're shaking your head, you know that as with many family tales, these were all pretty much untrue (although there may be some truth to the horse thieves part.)

I decided this year that I should put my research somewhere besides my database. And, I also decided to recreate (rather than make a .gedcom and have to re-source everything. I was able to attach to an ancestor on here a few weeks ago (May, 2016) and was I ever excited! Slowly I'm adding and linking to people on Wikitree. This also fits my goal of starting over, looking at every piece of information I have.

Currently on Wikitree, I'm working on my Burdge family going back to the 1600's in this country.

Thank you for your help, Kathy! I didn't know how to cite FInd a Grave other than posting a link. From your example, now I know. :D

Hi Kathy, The Gemmell profiles I'm working on from Paisley, Renfrewhaire are in my granddaughter's paternal line. There are quite a few trees on Ancestry for them. Just trying to find more concrete sources as I move them here !! Do you have any names for the Gemmells in your line and I'll see if I can find them from my end !!

Hi Kathy. Thanks for the Shaw suggestions. I marked the 1880 census as possible, too, because I am just not sure.

Thanks again! Don't forget to add Richards-2257 to your list in the https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/344916/february-2017-sourcerers-challenge ... I forget if you can add profiles that didn't have {Unsourced} but Mary had no sources till I copied the marriage info you found for her husband to her profile. If it's allowed, you should count Tate-810 too!

Cheers, Liz

Thank you very much for your suggestion about Alice Willis. This reminded me that I had more recent information to enter on her profile, which has now been done.

Thank you for all of your contributions to my family. I do know that my great grandfather's mother was Native American. He always said he was born in a cave. His mother did visit when my mother was young. What tribe, I don't know. He did have a brother/half brother in Ohio. Grandpa also spent time in reform school in Ohio. The document stated he had no parents. Have lost or misplaced that document.

Thank you for your help in reformatting John Miles Duncan's biography. He is my husband's 3x great grandfather, and I just adopted him a few weeks ago. a lot of the Duncans, Maples, and McCorkhills that I adopted had other infomation on them from before they had been abandoned. It is going to take awhile for me to get them all straightened around. Thank you for your help!
