I'm a professor of classics who studies connections between video games and classical literature, and uses those connections to foment the cause of game-based learning. I also became interested over summer 2011 in my family history, and quickly became addicted to what I think of as the genealogy game.

If you're interested in my scholarly work, have a look at my blog, Living Epic, at my posts at "Play the Past", and at the LLC I founded with some of my wonderful students!

Hi Roger,

It looks like you may have some outstanding merges that need attention. You can find them by following the link at the top of this page under >My Wikitree>Watchlist, then hit the button that says Pending Merges. If you need help, just ask. Thanks for helping with Wikitree

Hello Roger,

As part of preparations to make the profiles and existing living descendants of Princes Charles, Andrew, Edward and Princess Anne visible, under the new Wikitree guidance I will be removing from the TL anyone who is more distant than a second cousin, or who is not a member of the England Project and actively working on the profiles.

I hope you understand and please contact me if you have any queries about this.

Best wishes

Lizzie England Leader

Hi Roger, got your message about Roger Preston. I'll move forward and update his profile according to Anderson's Great Migration.

No need for me to be on the TL or PM; I'm not a descendant just doing this work for PGM Project. Thanks though, I appreciate the offer.

Roger, could you please approve the merge for Bethia Adams? Also, it would be good to remove Lisa Fisher from that trusted list as Lisa is still learning how NOT to create duplicates.

Hi, Roger:

Can you help me with this? I am looking for the children of Daniel White born in 1766, son of Daniel White Jr and Submit White. Can you help? Thanks!

Your profile of Amelia Jones,, needs to have her husband removed as her father.

Just let me know if you're not sure how to do this.

Cheers Mark

Please check the house of Normany and correct according to offical sources. [Detlev Schwennicke, Europäische Stammtafeln: Stammtafeln zur Geschichte der Europäischen Staaten, Neue Folge, Band II (Marburg, Germany: J. A. Stargardt, 1984), Tafel 75],_Duke_of_Normandy#cite_note-13

My concern is Alice who married Renaud de Burgundy is incorrectly listed here. Alo see Otto William of Burgundy married Ermengard de Roucy

Hi Roger we do have 3.4cm Shared DNA (they set it at 7) if you have shared matches see below (then try lowering the cm...on a one - one compare )

will often show some DNA ...but as 5 generations ago its too weak to show at 7cm) we have 3 shared DNA matches its 5 generations ago ...our ancestors might tie in (thats proably why no match for us ...too weak) this gedmatch application is handy! People who match both kits, or 1 of 2 kits Kit 1: A477132 (*Jackie) Kit 2: M143222 (Roger Travis)

Hello 8th cousin once removed via Ed Walker, how are you? I see you are profile manager for Great Grandma Thankful Walker, or was it Experience. Have you applied or proved your line for The Mayflower Society? Thanks, Renee
