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.

April 2017 update: Currently, I'm working on a side family -- the Hall family (William Schrader Hall) in Rush County, Indiana.

Thank you for finally putting my branch of the family in context to where other people will hopefully fill in the blanks. I am grateful for this.

Kathy, I appreciate all your help on all my long-neglected profiles! I am going through them slowly, trying to do as many as I can every day to whittle down the messy GEDCOM aftermath from when I first start, but it's slow going. Chugging along, slowly but surely!

Thank you, and Happy Hunting, Debi

Good morning. I've added the Census returns for Alfred Gemmell. Quite confident. Not sure who his mother was. I think it was Janet Wilson. Have a look and tell me what you think. There's a lot more about the family but won't add it yet. Regards C

Hi. I believe I have census returns in Scotland for Alfred Gemmell. I nearly just wrote them up and added them to his page, but I thought I'd ask first as you've done such a good job on the bio. He trained as a House joiner and was living with the McMillan family before his marriage. I have been unable to connect your Paisley Gemmels to my Paisley Gemmels though have tried and will keep trying. Regards, C

I have added my essential family tree information into WikiTree, and I feel like I am at a logical stopping point for now. I am available to answer questions, and I will try to check my watchlist from time to time, in an effort to prevent duplicates. If anyone wants to add more relatives, or more details to the existing relatives, I will be there to help review. I typically check my email once a week.

Haven't used Wiki for a few years. I will figure how to unprivatize any people on my trees.
