It was Christmas day and I was 30 years old. My Mother asked me why I did not go by my name. "WHAT?? I go by my name daily." Then came the punch line......"I named you CaryAnn." No duh? Cary is my first name and Ann is my middle name or so I thought. Mom then tells me she named me CaryAnn, one word. I knew she always called me Cary Ann but I thought she was always mad at me. But no, she actually named me CaryAnn and always called me that. When I told my brother he thought like me that Ann was my middle name. What a shock. So look at your birth certificates because you may not be who you think you are.

Just some trivia about me

  • First and foremost I am a Christian.
  • I am a wife, mother and grandmother.
  • Love dogs allergic to cats
  • I am dyslexic
  • I can't type. It takes me forever to type in my genealogical information and with dyslexia I do many misspellings. Spell check is my BFF
  • I've been doing this for over 40 years
  • I love history
  • DNA Paternal & Maternal relationship is confirmed by Family Tree DNA

*DNA Paternal & Maternal relationship is confirmed by Ancestry DNA

  • DNA Paternal & Maternal relationship is confirmed by 23 &Me DNA
  • DNA Paternal & Maternal relationship is confirmed by My Heritage DNA
  • DNA Paternal & Maternal relationship is confirmed by Genesis (GED Match)

I do my best to make my tree is as correct as possible. But, as all genealogist know, mistakes happen. If you find any please let me know and provide the sources to show me where I went wrong.

I took the Ancestry DNA test and the results were a BIG surprise. It seems my 2nd GGM had three children with her married lover not whom we thought was our GGGF. Now I am on the hunt for this new family line.

Once I figure out how to use this site I will change this with information as Wiki Tree requests. Happy Hunting, C


  • First-hand I am alive and well and have all my papers proving who I am.

Hi CaryAnn,

Please don't use 'now of the USA' in location names after you've removed 'USA' for pre-1776 dates. Just remove the 'USA'. Thanks!

Hi CaryAnn,

A warm welcome to the WikiTree family! The initial email from us has helpful links that will get you started on WikiTree, which is not like any genealogy site you’ve ever used and it is FREE. WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all work together as a BIG collaborative team!

What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree? When you confirm your email address, you’ll have an opportunity to volunteer and tell us about your genealogical interests.

Once you volunteer, one of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way!

We’re really glad you’re here. More importantly, have fun growing your family tree and connecting to persons with the same interest.

Ludwig :)
