Absence Alert

Will respond back as soon as I can to anything, but having to pay attention to the living people first.

Anticipate having more time come middle of May, however won't be able to fully work on profiles in depth as I was likely until October. But will still monitor edited profiles that I manage, make minor changes and watch for merges etc to ensure basic housekeeping is kept up

Interesting Find

As of last weekend, I completed a very important journey in helping 3 people locate their birth fathers. It was a lesson in humanity, sociology and truly understanding genealogy at a different level.

Project Plan

I have adopted all orphan Bewley, Millhorn, Cullom and Hargis Profiles on Wikitree(including non related ones), and all orphans that show in my "family", many of whom I don't have in my own personal tree. These get immediately reviewed then put in either the unsourced/unconnected ques, or my updating ques. I also have created profiles for some interesting people I find in the news articles I have read such as the boy who trained a Squirrel at 9, or have other reason such as creating profiles for the family from Finland that I'm trying to get a box of Memorabilia back to from about 1900.

I know have settled in on a que format of updating and that I work off my watch list and update profiles as they come up as "last updated" and it's making for a very fun time on wiki tree.. As I delve deeper and deeper on the ones who I created when I first got here, I'm finding sources I never imagined before and adding them .. I try to spend at least 10-15 minutes updating each profile if not longer, and if I can't find new sources I make note of where I looked and what routes i explored.

I also will dedicate a few hours here and there specifically to connect my unconnected or unsourced profiles. Once I find at least once "source" the profile then falls into the que mentioned above. I think I have about 2,200 profiles I manage right now and about 90 are unsourced - about 85 of those are adopted and if I truly in the end can not support the person or know it's a "bad" profile I merging it away or reusing it.

My final fun and Goal is to start expanding into transcription of Wills, Clips of Newspaper articles, and many of the other thousands of documents and records I have for each person. As I create people though if there is a photograph that does not require transcription I am uploading it immediately.

Parents Collide

My parents first collided in their ancestry at: William Hoo right now.. will be interesting to see overtime if it becomes closer then that and if under evidence that link holds up. This makes William the 19th great grandfather of Linda. This makes William the 18th great grandfather of Roger. Roger and Linda are 19th cousins once removed which means that if any one of those (8,388,607+4,194,303=)12,582,910 people had chosen a different person or died before they made my ancestor I wouldn't be here.

As of the 31st of January that has changed and is now they are 18th cousins twice removed at Roger Lewknor

As of Feb 15th it is now Marion Crawford Houston Roger and Linda are 16th cousins

Why I love wiki tree

  • Adoption angels - I have helped 3 women find their birth fathers and currently now working with a 4th, it's an interesting experience in humanity
  • We get to tell a story about a human not a list of details and charts
  • There is ways to help others
  • If I find a cool story in a newspaper, or obituary or anything that deserves to be told about someone I can - we come across the coolest stuff when researching. As I make my way through my documents in files I can sh
  • I like working on the database errors and focus on Orphan profiles. Usually I do these if I only have a few minutes. As I gain comfort I'm doing more things on profiles not mine like fixing their find a Graves. Orphans need love too! Not sure how to generate a report of orphan profiles with errors on its own yet so just go through the others.
  • By adopting profiles not ours, but same last names and linking them back, we may find links and hints for our own families that we missed.

My DNA confusion

I have one line of DNA showing up that I am a close match too - Cullom - I have no idea where they fit in, but is confirmed likely tied to my Roberts line. It may perhaps be related to either James Henry's size or Malvina - however may in fact be Matlock's wife Zilphas family..

How am I ever going to be able to use proven by DNA, still confuses me to much on here and the notation? maybe one day, but in the interim I'm happy let others set it up - I currently have at least 18 common ancestors going back to 3rd and 4th great grandparents I know my DNA Matches along with other lines.

List of Resources online

Cool Things

  • I went to University at 14
  • I have traveled to Rome, Romania, France, Australia, Bahamas, Jamaica with stop overs and exploring a bit of China and Germany
  • I have lived in California, Washington, Oregon, North Carolina, British Columbia and 2 years as a gypsy as a child exploring the Southern States
  • I have had some of my writing published, and hope in time after details are loaded that I will be able to bring my writing to the profiles and tell a story

My genealogy beliefs

  • I heard from a cousin - We don't own our ancestors - my view in a nutsell
  • It's easy to build a large database of a facts and figures, but genealogy is about who they are and the fact they paid $5 for rent is more important then wether they died March 5 or March 25
  • I know accuracy is important but you will not see me get emotional over "the 5th of march of the 25th of March" - We are talking about several hundred years ago - maybe the 2 records had people who thought it was different days - not like they had computers to track things.
  • I strongly believe in proof and circumstantial evidence if it's supported
  • I want to be proven I'm wrong in my information, only if something can't be proven wrong is it still correct.
  • much like Rome.. it is not Nero or Ceaser we appreciate when standing upon the ruins - it is the work of those that built it
  • It is not great names, nor famous for one act - but it is the small people with their dedication to their lives, communities -
  • Yes I believe even our black sheep that created our world as we know it
  • Our Ancestors secrets deserve to be told, then we will all see we are the same

Research History

  • I've been tracing the family tree off and on for about 27 years now.. just picked it up again after a few years of having it sit on the shelf.
  • I just took everything out of the attic last night - there is a large steamer trunk of genealogy stuff..
  • In looking at that stuff I realized it's going to take me a lifetime to build and that one day I will be at 5,000 - but this is not about the numbers, but those documents in the binders, and copies of letters and wills deserve the time
  • I have 34,000 people in my personal file, most well documented, but even with that as I've reproofed them to enter here I'm fixing my own errors . that makes me happy

Thanks for catching the duplication. I’m relatively new to Wikitree. I knew there was a duplication, and had tried to merge the two, but somehow messed it up completely. Thanks!

Kristina,

Regarding Allie Posey Smith, you added or changed the place of death but listed no source. It would be considerate to contact the manager of an "Active" profile before making changes. Thanks, Bettie

Hi Kristina

Thank you for the work you are doing to reduce the suggestions. Can I ask you to ensure you make a note in the status when you correct the profiles as this saves time for others when they check the profile.

The list is update once a week so the suggestion remains on the list until Monday evenings.

Many Thanks

Hi Kristina,

Thank you for the postings, however it just gets me anxious to link these two orphans with my ancestors. Sometime in the late 1700's, Joseph Bowker (Bowker-47) left Scituate, Mass and settled in Phippsburg, Sagadahoc County, Maine and proceeded to have about 12 children, the first in 1762. I'm wondering if any of them travelled further downeast to settle in Washington County. I'm going to have to do some digging. What are your sources for the data you posted?

Kristina, data posted by unlisted on William Spencer son of Samuel and Sybil Tisdasle Spencer has no merit, Anthony Jones has the data correct.

Appreciate your interest in the Spencer Ancestry of Anson, North Carolina: history documents this branch as Rebels in the Civil War, as proven by the deaths of several Spencers from the North and South.

My husband's brother is buried in Arlington National Cemetery, he served in Korea, went to college when he left the Navy, worked on the communications system at the Naval Academy in Annapolis. Birth of the Naval Academy in the 1840s is a very interesting subject matter. JMJ wife of family historian.

Revolutionary War was the birth of the US Navy, two Row Galleys were built in Rhode Island 1. Spitfire, 2. George Washington (financed by the Commander in Chief). Serving on the "Spitfire" was a distant relative Uriah Stone, hit by a cannon ball from a British Frigate, removing his left arm. The Commander in Chief ordered the Rhode Island General Assembly to grant Uriah a yearly pension. This, was the birth of the US Navy. FMJ family historian
