Interesting thought today

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

Project Plan

Currently I believe I have finished up the direct ancestor with basic proofs, a few of them I have found a few conflicts, such as the Haffa's and will be working on sorting them out.

I have adopted all orphan Bewley, Millhorn 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. I will be expanding these as soon as possible. I have several "adopted ones" who are now sitting as unsourced, unconnected that I need to research to see if they even actually exist.

My current goal now is to clean up the Roberts profiles I imported, and "reproof" them and identify discrepancies.

My 2nd Goal is to start expanding on all siblings of my ancestors, and then follow one child for each generation down to the 1940 census.

My 3rd 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.

Why I love wiki tree

  • Adoption angels - I am currently helping 2 people find their fathers, they are related, and it is rewarding, but much harder then I thought.
  • 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.

My Free Spaces to keep me organized

Here is my todo list: To Do List

Here is my work in progress Confirmed DNA Ancestors, list of Last Names and their status, Those who fought in 1776 and those here before 1700.

Cool Things

  • I am actually direct blood line Cousins with Kevin Bacon
  • 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 31,000 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

Really enjoyed reading your article. Loved the story of your 1980s trip to Tennessee!

We're 17th cousins once removed, by way of William Sidney Esq. (born 1395)... two things I love about WikiTree - discovering distant cousins & discovering new-to-me ancestors that someone has added to WikiTree!

Cheers, Liz

Oh Great! Now you have the proof! William Campbell is the son of Levi Noah Sheaffer. :) Happy to have helped. Yes, my mother's cousin and I have been picking at our John Jacob Shaffer married to Anna Maria Reichenbach both circa 1760, for 26 YEARS! lol 3 of the last, of which I have been steady at it. When I find the DNA connection to Valentin and Balthasar, I will have broken our Shaffer wall! Any how, use the info as you will. You can find a lot of your line on Familysearch. I found more there than else where.

You can search for Find A Grave memorials by going to the FIND page. In section 4 "ANY TEXT" enter just the digits of the Find A Grave memorial. If the memorial is in a profile it will find it.
