VACATION ALERT

I will be away July 24 to Aug 13 with no internet and will respond to questions and review suggestions when I return.

Project Plan

After a bit of too many things on the list so genealogy fell off it, I'm finding I'm enjoying working on profiles again but changing some of the direction of things I was working on and how I do it based on what aspects I enjoy. So focusing primarily on 1800 and later at this current time.

I had adopted all orphan Bewley, Millhorn, Cullom and Hargis Profiles on Wikitree(including nonrelated ones), and all orphans that show in my "family", many of whom I don't have in my own personal tree. I have found now that such great intentions of adoption a lot of those profiles simply couldn't be found any evidence so I have released a fair amount of them back to find new homes that might have better luck then me.

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 now 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 4,900 profiles I manage right now and about 41 are unsourced - about 31 of those are adopted. I also have taken on several special directions to me - one is in relation to a serial killer and building out profiles for his victims to link them back to the world tree at least once.

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

Aug 20, 2019 are Roger and Linda are 11th cousins five times removed and collide at Lady Margaret Steward Drummond

As of May 28, 2020 Roger and Linda are 16th cousins and collide at Marion Crawford Houston again

Why I love wiki tree

  • Adoption angels - I have helped 3 women find their birth fathers , it's an interesting experience in humanity. I'm not certain if I want to again, as great as it is to give people closure, and we did find healthy family to connect them with, some of the stories were not pretty, but could write a book about the families.
  • 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 share.
  • 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.. But now leading towards Warfords, but the Warfords married the Bane's and the line is pointing more towards Warfords, but Family history is that Zilpha's last name was Bane.. so it is helping.

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 to 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.

Cool Things

  • I went to University at 14 and lived in both the US and Canada from the West Coast to the East Coast
  • I have traveled to Rome, Romania, France, Australia, Bahamas, Jamaica, Indonesia, Cuba with stop overs and exploring a bit of China, Taipai, 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

Kristina,

I am so sorry I did not see your request to be added to the Trusted List of George Hargase from last year.

I have corrected the mistake, and you are added.

Thank you,

Kristina, thanks for adding me as manager

Kristina, Thank you so much for your quick answer. and for adding me to Rebecca's and Isaac's trusted lists. Would it be ok for me to become manager?

Lloyd Roberts lives in this area I think as he was quoted in the town newspaper as giving a talk locally. Do you have an email for him? Thanks again. (I love to do notable women from this area-- especially the pioneers!)

Kristina, I've been working on Rebecca Tomlinson-855 (Rebecca Williams, wife

of Isaac Williams.) I think we need to establish the source(s) for the various parts of her bio which it appears to have been added by you. I've been using Hathitrust to read Hildreth's book but there are at least 2 more sources online for his book. A merge is also needed for Isaac Williams. Could we have your help here? Thanks for all you have done already.

Hi Christina!

Thanks for the message about being cousins. I looked at your Hargis line and it looks great! Your profiles look great, too! You go girl! Dola Nowell-324

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!
