Digital Afterlife: I want to be sure that none of my hard work on WikiTree ends up being deleted. While I fully intend on being around to manage my 1,000+ profiles for the next 20 years or so, in the event of my death I hereby give permission for all of my managed profiles to be transferred to any of the following slightly-active WikiTreer's in my family, whether or not they are currently on trusted lists:
Looking for Fry's who settled in Greene County Tennessee and Richland County Wisconsin. Also looking for descendants of Darius Frederick "Fred" Fry who lived in Whatcom and Snohomish counties in Washington State.
Looking for the descendants of J. Nicholas Jacobs and Anna Schneider Jacobs. In 1867 they traveled on the "Davey" wagon train from St. Coud Minnesota to Walla Walla Washington and beyond. They eventually settled in Uniontown Washington.
Looking for descendants of Conrad and Barbara (Nahser) Wittman. They were early pioneers (1860's) in Butte and Humboldt counties in California.
Bart Triesch's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Bart or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Bart:
Hi Bart. So, tell your wife Hello! for me, from her new-found 9th cousin twice removed. (I got a little chuckle that we bumped into each other via the German Roots Project, when our common ancestor is from the English side of my family. Such is the way of the Ever-Branching-Great-Family-Thorn-Bush (i.e., it's not just a "Tree" anymore.)
Hi Bart! Thanks for your comment on the Golden photo. It's amazing to hear that your mother remembers the Powder Mill Gulch explosion of 1930. I live near Mukilteo and am allways looking for sources on Snohomish County history.
I appreciate you and your comments here Bart too. And thank you for your service in Viet Nam, a terrible war. I watched the PBS special on it, twice, and I mourned. You all didn't get good information about the people in the states wanting so much for you to come home, and you were stuck by the presidents of the US who presided over that war with their army officers and cabinet members.
Hi Bart, I just wanted to say "Congratulations" on becoming one of the newest Blue And Red Badged "Generous Genealogist", As a G2G monitor, it is a pleasure to see the work you have done!! Your assistance to family members by adding various photos on our G2G forum has been noticed and very much appreciated. I also want to thank you for your military service!!
