(self written)

Jessica was born and raised in Janesville, Wisconsin. When she was 2 years old, her parents bought a house at 216 Riverside Street that was built by her 2nd great grandfather, William J Hilt, in 1908.

Jessica attended public schools in Janesville and graduated from Craig High School in 1998. In October of 1999 she obtained her Certified Nursing Assistant license from Blackhawk Technical College.

She became interested in genealogy at a young age thanks to her paternal grandfather. He would tell her stories of his life growing up and tell stories of his relatives. He had lots of pictures to share and even had a family crest. His pride in his roots is now shared with Jessica. She loves solving a good genealogy mystery!

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Jessica or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Jessica:

Hi Jessica,

I just saw your post. My paternal 3rd great grandfather, Owen Cassidy, was born Drimmennin, Donegal, County Donegal about 1795. He died in 1866 in Syracuse, Onondaga County, New York.

I looked at the connect option and saw that Permelia Ann Farrar Reed daughter of Andrew Farrar is the brother of my 2nd great grandmother, Caroline Cornelia Farrar Tucker.

Hi Jessica

Just a note to say how much the work you are doing in relation to the Cassidy surname, it is appreciated, thank you.

You may be interested in adding your Cassidy profiles to the Cassidy One Name Study, There is a category you can add to these profiles, See how to add categories to your Cassidy profiles  these links can just be copied and pasted into profiles

This is a link to the space page for the Cassidy One Name Study -  

My Paternal Great Grandmother was a Cassidy of Irish origin.

If I can be of any help let me know

Thanks for the info, Janet! I would love to add my Cassidy family to the Cassidy Name Study, however neither of the links you shared work. The first one says "this page does not exist," and the second link "page not found."

Hi Jessica

I refreshed the links before I left the message, so it is strange they are not working correctly.

Just clear the junk at the end the %C2%A0 & the %C2%A0%C2%A0 links should work fine then

That did the trick Janet!

Thanks! Jessica

Also, Thank You for adding your DNA Test information to your profile on WikiTree. Your information will be propagated to the profiles of your parents and your ancestors within about 24 hours of being added. It will also propagate to the profiles of the descendants of your ancestors, so they may see your information under the heading "DNA Connections" just as you can see theirs.

Getting started with DNA outlines how to proceed to use your DNA test information on WikiTree and DNA is a link to a collection of links about WikiTree's many features involving DNA.

The DNA Connections list on your profile will provide a visual way for you to find potential relatives on WikiTree who have also added their DNA test information. Using DNA tools at sites like, if you find a relative that matches your DNA sufficiently and you have genealogical sources for the intermediate relationships, you can mark the specific parental relationships back to the most recent ancestor that you both share as "confirmed with DNA." For details, guidance, and examples of how to properly document DNA confirmations, see DNA confirmation.

To get the best results, begin adding sourced profiles for your ancestors until you can connect to ancestors already in WikiTree. If you have exhausted what you know on one line, it can sometimes help to add what you know on another line. The more branches you are able to add the greater the likelihood of finding potential cousins to match with. The process of identifying which branch elements of DNA relate to will better enable you to find matches that relate to the particular branches you are researching.
