Biography

I live in beautiful Sonoma County, California with my husband. Our two grown daughters and grandchildren reside in a neighboring state. My husband and I accepted early retirement when our employers downsized. My prior work experience doing data research and analysis has helped me tremendously while doing genealogy research.

In the mid 1970's my mother handed me paperwork that covered her family and my father's family back to my 3rd great grandfather on each side. This included sisters, brothers, dates, places, letters, family stories and photos. I started verifying what she had collected at the Genealogy Library of Virginia in Richmond. After moving to California I was able to continue at a local Family History Library and during trips back to Virginia.

During the past twenty years I have continued my quest to discover where the branches of my family were from prior to America. I am very fortunate that both sides of my family arrived in Virginia and remained there, with a few exceptions of jumping over a border for a generation of two and then returning to Virginia. Most of my ancestors can be traced back to mid 1600's to mid 1700's, but they are still in America and records are slim to none.

My work is well documented and I am slowly adding family and documentation to Wiki Tree to help others looking for family. I can't express how disgusted I am with the errors on Ancestry trees. Simple errors that if people took the time to look at what they are copying they would see the error.

During the past 15 years I have managed a Yahoo group for the Tucker surname. We have records, photos and over 800 members. When Family Tree YDNA testing first started my father volunteered to do the testing for Tucker. I was very surprised at how many unrelated Tucker families there were living in America during the 1600 and 1700's.

Hi Rebecca - After a busy 2-weeks at work I'm circling back to the conversation we had a few weeks ago. However, I accidently deleted the email thread that included the discussion about the information you discovered about Clement Lawson.  :-( I also lost your contact information. My email address is dougpilant@msn.com

Hope to hear from you.

Hi . I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Let me know. I can help you figure out if there's a project and introduce you to the project leaders.

Welcome Rebecca!

You are now a member of the WikiTree Community. We are building one Collaborative Tree which means one profile per person.

It is important to check for duplicates as you add any Profiles to WikiTree. Instead of making another profile of the same person, we add our sources to profiles which match ours and are already on WikiTree.

See How to Use WikiTree to be quickly oriented.

Our list of Projects offers unique ways to participate in WikiTree.

Visit our G2G Forum for answers to questions like this one: How do you find sources?

Thank you for joining us in building our shared tree.
