My WikiTree workload at 8/1/2020:

My family tree on has sourced, detailed biographies for about 6,000 family members. I discovered WikiTree in about 2013 and used it to research and improve profiles on my private tree. More recently (about 2017), I started sharing my information on WikiTree and have been creating new profiles and/or improving existing profiles with information and sources from my private tree. Today, I use WikiTree exclusively to maintain my family tree.

I regularly work to improve the collective family tree with:

Names I Follow

Thiessen, Miell, Crawford, Musel, Rayman, Junge, Perkins, Hind/Hinds, Leatherman, Crandall, Bradley, Konicek, Chihak, Kloppenburg. In my husband's tree, all with German roots, are: Mosblech, Kalt, Kettenbach, and Elker.

Personal stuff

I grew up in Chicago. I graduated from DePaul University in Chicago and spent 20+ years working at leading Chicago and St. Louis law firms in the Private Client/Trust, Estates and Tax departments. In 2004, I left my career to be a full-time mom and in 2005, we moved east.

My Immigrant Ancestors

"Recent" Migrating Ancestors (after 1840), from England, Germany and what was then known as Bohemia.
The rest, in my Perkins and Crandall branches, came to America much earlier, in the 1600s and 1700s.

Thrilled to bits to see my 14th GGF Richard Chamberlayne has been recognised with a Magna Carta Project badge. Thank you so much for your work!

His son, William, by the way, according to 'Magna Carta Ancestry', was a Friar at Greenwich. Until I get pre-1500 verification, I can't add this, but perhaps you can. I have a screenshot from MCA showing the information, if that is acceptable.

Richard's great grandson, Richard, btw, married Elizabeth Harcourt (I took the liberty of adding this a couple of days ago), which means that that whole Harcourt line connects with Charlemagne. There is no line going up there as yet, but I'd be delighted to add it if and when I get the go-ahead for pre-15OO profiles.

Best wishes, Frances Piercy-Reins

Thanks Frances! No need to send a screenshot, I have all the Richardson books. I added MCA as a source on William's profile. I also proposed some merges on a few profiles you added (there were already existing profiles for Richard Chamberlain, his mother and her 1st husband on WikiTree). Appreciate the help!

Hello, I see you manage the Wyatt (Francis) tree, Magna Carta. I am a descendant on my mother's side. I have the standard pedigree tree and a descendant of each. It goes back to 1080. I'm new so I don't know much about connecting profiles yet. I have noticed that some info like wives and dates on a couple I can match are missing. I believe I can help with some of those missing names. I also have a letter from my great aunt with my great grandfather/mothers names. let me know if i can help. thank you

Traci - I've lost access to my e-mail. Could you let Michael & Jen know? (I think I hit enter when I shouldn't have and changed the password... which I've long since forgotten.)
posted by Liz (Noland) Shifflett
Thanks for letting us know ... I was getting messages that my emails to you were undeliverable. Michael said his weren't bouncing back.

What we are all able to/ wish to contribute on Wikitree has changed. Please let me know if you are happy with your current role and team choice or if you wish to do something additional or different. Thank you again on behalf of all the project leaders for everything you do.

Hi Traci,

On behalf of the England Leaders, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your contributions towards the project in the past six months as a Team Member for Managed Profiles, Sourcerers, Data Doctors, Connectors and Arborists. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.

Please respond to this message via e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,
