I manage quite a few profiles. I find that I have a bad habit of trying to gather too much information about a person and will often get sidetracked. Should you come across a profile for which I am the manager that has a “WIP” tag that is more than a week old, or if it looks like I was in the middle of editing it and stopped, or if it is incomplete and the last edit was by me more than a week ago, please, please send me a private message. All you need to include is the Wiki id (i.e. Toups-373).
I am a native of Metairie, Louisiana and a direct descendant of Gaspard "Caspar" Dubs - commonly referred to as the "Progenitor of the Toups family". Most of my more recent ancestors lived in and around Lafourche, Terrebonne, Orleans, St. Charles, and St. Bernard Parishes in Louisiana, and Hancock and Harrison Counties in Southern Mississippi. My parents moved to Bay St. Louis, Mississippi in May 1975 so I grew up in Hancock County. I currently reside in Harrison County.
I joined Ancestry.com after my daughter and I sent our Ancestry DNA kits in for analysis. I discovered WikiTree by following a link in a profile hint on Ancestry and I was hooked!
I am in the process of manually creating WikiTree profiles from my existing Ancestry tree rather than importing a GEDCOM file. For me, this method, although slow and painstaking, is both more thorough and more accurate because each detail and source has to be scrutinized and entered. I have found and corrected many mistakes in the information I gathered via Ancestry.
I have started the Toups Name Study project. If you are a descendent of, related to, or interested in the Toups or Dubs surnames, feel free to join me. You can learn about the study on the Project Page or peruse the profiles of those who have already been added to the study on the Companion Page. To add a Toups or Dubs profile to the study, copy and paste one of the following above the Biography section of the profile you want to add (either option will add it to the Category):
I added the Toups Clan subcategory to the Toups Name Study. The intent is to add the subcategory to the profiles of those who are part of the Toups Clan book
