Kathy (Stuewe) Zipperer is participating with Southern Super Sweepers during the 2018 Clean-a-Thon, correcting Georgia 603 suggestions.

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, I'm working on a side family -- the Hall family (William Schrader Hall) in Rush County, Indiana. Slowly, very slowly. I am also going through my watchlist starting at A, making sure that everyone has sources, a biography, and stickers, if appropriate. I'm thinking it will take me about 3 years to do everyone, especially as side-tracked as I get.

  • August 2017: I will be out of commission (seriously out of commission) from the 21st of August until probably through December 2017 sometime. Please don't think I'm uninterested. This is my passion and I'm very interested just completely unavailable. I hope to be back asap.
  • November 2017 update: Three surgeries later (yup-3), I'm starting to read in a line, and able to stay awake about 3 hours per time. Brain surgery is no joke. At this point, it might be January before I start genealogy again, but I am tumorless (completely benign, the size of a baseball) and on the up and up, although it's a slow road.
  • February 2018 update: Still out of the loop in terms of doing much work via computer. Still can't read for long stretches. I am definitely frustrated and very glad I feel well enough to be frustrated. Staying awake all day, which is huge!!!
  • April 2018 update: I can sit at the computer and work in long stretches (2-3 hours). Reading is still a little iffy. I'm starting to drive again!!! Just short trips (a couple of miles.) I still have to sleep waaaaay too long (like 10-12 hours), but when I think that just a few months ago I couldn't walk or take a shower or dress myself -- this is serious progress. And, my hair has all grown back.

Still a slow road.
