2016: 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 .ged com) and 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.


1. A side family -- the Hall family (William Schrader Hall) in Rush County, Indiana.

2. 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. 3. Working on my son-in-law's family, Gaskins, from south Georgia and back into North Carolina. 4. Data doctoring and trying to get suggestions for all my grandparents clean through 10 generations.

  • 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.

  • August 2018 update, 1 year later: Wiki-ing away. Driving. And, I am now able to read books!!! That means, I can cook/bake/think about food. I can read late at night. I can read the newspaper. Woo-hoo! Not 100% but definitely on the road to wellness.

Hi Kathy! Happy New Year to you, as well!! I have one benign result and still waiting to meet with surgeons to find out what to do about my liver. I don't have a confirmation, yet, on whether those tumors are benign. I was told that the surgeons may wish to take all of the tissue, benign, or not, and my primary doctor is of the opinion that removal is a good plan. I have some corrections to get to here on Wikitree!! Thank you for your kindness and for your sweet email many months ago. I'm so happy to read your August update and that you are doing so well. Best wishes for what's in store for the year ahead of us!!
