I've had an interest in genealogy since the first time I laid eyes on a family tree that my older Sister made for a History project. I think I was about 7 or 8 years old at that time. No idea why that memory sticks in my head, it's just one of those things!

I started taking the job of family genealogist seriously in about 2017. I am one of the lucky ones, as all 4 of my Grandparents are still living and able to contribute valuable information to my research. With the family genealogy relatively complete I dove in and really started doing genealogy on all kinds of profiles around Nova Scotia, Canada.

Although I'm not registered yet, I hope to soon apply for my certification in Nova Scotia as a Genealogical Records Searcher. This is the first step on the road to Certified Genealogist in the province and the country in general.


  • Working with the Acadian Project, although my research has been focused entirely on the North East Margaree area.. there happened to be a transcribed Parish register at this location and it seemed a shame no one had organized it online
  • My major project at this time is a "Carto-genealogy" project which is a linking of Crown Land Index sheets for the province with Wikitree profiles
  • Also trying to digitize the Mabou Pioneers genealogy text written by my Great Grand Uncle, Father AD MacDonald Mabou Pioneers Project Space

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Keenan by comparing test results with other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage (beta) of DNA with Keenan:

I believe I have connections to the Macdonell tree

Hi Grace, I'd be glad to help out connecting up some profiles if you let me know which ones!
posted by Keenan Sutherland
thank you so much! I can see that you've added Alexander Macdonell (son of Margaret Beaton and John Macdonell) on the Macdonell tree. He is my great great grandfather. let me know if you need any more info, I am still adding to my tree!

Hi Keenan,

Thanks for having a big heart and adopting the Orphaned Profiles. This After Adopting Orphans FAQ explains the special attention that adopted profiles will sometimes need.

Let me know if you have any questions on how to find and record sources, merge duplicates, clean up gedcom biographies, and interpret the Suggestions report. I'm here to help!

Hey Debi!

Shouldn't be a problem for me. I adopted these because I have access to the appropriate resources for these Nova Scotia settlers. Already started sorting about the duplicates and unsourced profiles.

Congratulations on being awarded a Wonderful WikiTreer. It is good to see your diligence recognised by others whom you have helped.
Thank you for your work on the MacLellan pages. I do have more family info, but I haven't had time to work on it yet. I look forward to working on the family tree with you.

Congratulations on being awarded the Family Star badge.
Thank you so much! Your help is greatly appreciated.
Keenan, I see you are a Nova Scotian. Sutherland families in NS are very well documented with their roots back in Scotland. Feel free to contact me.

Hi again,

I just wanted to suggest that you edit the sources you are adding to the profiles created. They seem to have insufficient data, for example "1881 census" with no identifiers is not adequate. It does not tell anyone where the census was taken a is recorded.

For more information see Sources.


Hi Keenan –

We are happy to have you as a member of WikiTree. I hope you’re enjoying being here.

I'm a member of the Mentor project, and I just wanted to check in and see how things are going. Do you have any questions I can help you with?

Hello Again,

You've been a member of WikiTree for about a week now so I thought I would check in to see how it's going. Have the How-Tos been helpful or left you with questions?

I want to help! Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page or send me a private message. Sometimes links don't work in emails. If that's happened to you, check the public comments on your profile. The links will work from there.
