Hello WikiTree cousins and friends!
I am involved in the US Black Heritage Project, Cemeteries Project, and chip in on the weekly Challenges for 2021.
I am a project leader for USBH's new Heritage Exchange program, see this page for more information. I'm always glad to help and answer questions! US Black Heritage Exchange Portal I am also a guide for the USBH's Path program, a short help & intro course.
My family is primarily from the American South, as well as a bit of New York and Vermont. Roots extend back to England, Scotland, and other nearby countries, according to DNA, and some paper trails which I’m slowly working on. I’m on AncestryDNA as emartzen, check to see if we're kin there, too!
I do some of my work in honor of Dave Ebaugh, a truly Wonderful WikiTreer and person. I hope to complete his to-do lists for the US Black Heritage Project, of which he was an early member.
