Hi Dagmar,

Greetings from beautiful British Columbia :-)

Apparently we are cousins.

Dagmar and Michael are fifth cousins once removed

Dagmar Thorisdottir and Michael Chopek are both descendants of Guðmundur Jónsson (abt.1747-1811).

We also have 12 ancestors we share.

Small world we live in.

Hello Micheal

Nice hearing from you. That's typically Icelandic. We are all cousins, multiple times. :-) But not a lot of them on Wiki Tree. Do ask if there is anything I can help with, regarding Icelandic genealogy. There are great sources available, but you have to know where to look. Hilsen, Dagmar

Hi Dagmar,

Thanks for getting back to me. I am starting to see that what you said about... 'We are all cousins, multiple times' is very true.... Wiki makes it easy to see ones cousins.

Thanks for the offer of help, I do appreciate it. Take care.

Hilsen, Michael

Hi there. According to Wikitree, we are 27th cousins twice removed and we share 47 common ancestors.

Hello Ms. Thorisdottir,

I just went thru the WikiTree News feature of a few weeks ago. Supposedly we are very distant cousins with Harald Hardrade Sigurdsson (1015-1066) through some of my father's ancestors (Ogle) and with a "connection" of 29 degrees through some of my mother's ancestors (Stoner). To be honest, i find this a bit unlikely. Is there anyway i can prove or disprove this, even just a bit? I do know the Ogle branch of my tree is very old and distinguished. But it is English and i have never seen any names from the Scandinavian countries. it would be cool if true but i just doubt the relationship. I have my GEDmatch number and use a number of different genealogical websites. I am sure you get a lot of requests for assistance and i am not in a hurry, but if you would be so kind as to let me know how i can possibly prove/disprove our relationship. Thank you so much for your time and consideration. Janet Malloy (Wyland-105)

Hi Dagmar I’m new to wikitree but I’ve also done my DNA through family tree dna plus I’m a member of Icelandic roots. On Icelandic roots I found that we are 7th cousins a minimum of 4 different ancestors. I’m interested in the Iceland project takk

Hej Dagmar,

Igår fikk jeg se den tavlen hvordan vi er i familie gjennom 31 trinn. Jeg så en artikkel i Genealogen, medlemsbladet an Norsk Slektshistorisk Forening i Norge om Wikitree og hvor spennende det virker, så jeg tastet inn en del av slektstavlen: mor er norsk, far er tysk jeg var genealog og arkivar 1985 til 2017. Nå leder jeg Arbeitsgemeinschaft fuer Mitteldeutsche Familienforschung og tar meg av kirkearkivene i nærmere omkrets av hjembyen min. Jeg håper du forstår nok av norsken min, dansk kan jeg lese men ikke snakke, og oldvestnorsdisk (vikingspråket) tok jeg noen lekser 1975 - 1980 i Muenster/Vestfalen, det er ikke så mye jeg husker.

Skulle være morsjomt å brevveksle med deg.

Ha det bra

Hello Dagmar! My name is Anji & I am a writer & creator. I am currently doing research for a new project. My research has lead me to you. I am trying to find out as much information as possible regarding Fanny Horatia (Serle) Twiss Bacon Delane. She was the only wife of famed editor John Thadeus Delane of The Times (London), and according to wikitree, your distant relative. To my knowledge you are her only living relative. I am curious if you might know anything about her, or if there are any artifacts/belongings of hers that may still exist.

Any information you might be able to share with me will be most gratefully cherished!

posted by Angela Promo
Hello Anji. I am 32 degrees removed Fanny Horatia Serle (Twiss) Delane (1818-1874) and hardly the only one.

I have no knowledge of Fanny or her husband. You would have better luck asking for help in the G2G.

Hello, Dagmar. How wonderful to learn that I am related to you (as a very distant cousin), particularly since I am currently going through the literary catalogue of Ragnar Jonasson!
Does anyone know exactly how the gedmatch “ people who match both kits, or 1of 2 kits. I know there is some connection.or is there a better tool on wikitree.I like to check the wiki email list of relatives-degrees. Interesting and fun.

Example: a list of people matches both kits ( Dagmar Thorisdottir and others on this profile) I know most of these are distant connections but it’s mostly how I was able to build a family tree is with the help of distant and some close relatives.

Wiki tree is more difficult for me to navigate but also building a tree isn’t as easy as say the large one I have on ancestry.

Wikitree has no DNA-matching features. What they do have is a way for you to link your test to your profile and mark the Ancestors that you have confirmed through DNA.

But this also gives you the possibility to utilice all the DNA-testing-sites. Getmatch "people who match both kits, or 1of 2 kits" simply lists all the common matches between two kits. They also list kits that only match one or the other. This is the same as 'Shared matches' on Ancestry or 'In common with' on FTDNA. The difference is the list that only matches one or the other kit. This is a very strong tool to help find the unknown matches that might help you to confirm a branch.

Hi Dagmar,

Great to "meet you" through your Member of the Week interview! Your answers are great. I love this:

"Genealogy used to be a very solitary hobby. Now I seem to be working with somebody on just about all my projects. I have gotten to know some nice genealogists that have the same idea that this isn't my tree but our tree. And I love helping people find their ancestors. I've actually broken down a few walls for other people."

By the way, I visited Iceland once many years ago and loved it. I have many fond memories of the people I met.

Hi Dagmar,

We are not using Category:Recycle_Unknowns anymore. Would you do please change the category on Thurid Thorida Eyvindsdatter (0500-) to just Category:Unknowns? I cannot do it because I do not have the pre-1500 badge.

Thank you!

Hi, Dagmar,

I thought you'd like an explanation about Halldor Laxness. I recently posed a question about matrilineal lines. Knowing that Icelandic genealogy goes back to the Vikings, I wondered if I could find a Wikitree profile for someone from Iceland. When I Googled "famous people from Iceland", I found him. I expected a Nobel prize winner to have a profile, but I was surprised to find that he had no parents. I was also surprised that his last name was Laxness and not father's-son. Had you ever heard of him? Anyhow, thanks for filling out his profile, just in case anyone ever looks at it.

posted by Joyce Vander Bogart
Halldór was born Gíslason, but took the name Laxness and later adde Kiljan as well.

Everybody knows him ;-) We had to read at least one of his books in school. He was a colorful person and choose to make up his own spelling rules, so his books are difficult to read. The translations have the accepted spelling and are actually easier to read. He spoke with lots of 'pauses' so it took for ever to finish a sentence. His books are great. When I finish Halldór, I think I'll look for some of the other world famous Icelanders, at least in Iceland and see of they need some work.

posted by Dagmar Thorisdottir
I looked at the editing history on his profile. It was started in 2014, and mostly consists of being moved in and out of various categories. But in a few days, you have added his family tree. Your story makes him come alive, so I hope you add that. Maybe an Iceland sticker. Thanks again.

Hi Dagmar

How is it going so far, were the Member How-Tos pages helpful or did they leave you with questions?

Clicking your green tags shows members who follow that tag. Add tags other family surnames, for locations and Interests. The more tags you add the more links to community & research options Information on tags is on page one of the How To pages.

We want to help you learn about the site and the community, hopefully you found the pages and links useful.

Questions click my name & ask in the comment box on my page or post in the G2G Forum (see Help top right of your Profile

Hi Dagnar,

Thanks for volunteering! You are now a full member of the WikiTree community, and can start adding your family. Let me know if you have any questions.

Since WikiTree is different from other genealogy sites, we have a guided tour for new members at New Member How-To. Feel free to work through the How-Tos at your own pace.

Once you add profiles to WikiTree they become searchable and in my experience persons interested in these profiles will contact you and may provide further information to expand your family tree.

Great to have you on board, enjoy, and good luck growing your branches.

Ludwig :)
