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.

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

Kristina - I have just received an email stating that you had completed a merge of John Edward (Edward-152) and John Edwards (Edwards-8011).

The newly merged record gives John's surname as Edwards. This is inaccurate - John's surname ( and that of his father) was Edward with no 'S'. This is easily verifiable from official records at

John used the surname Edward with no 'S' all his life. The family only adopted the name Edwards with the 'S' after john had died.

I am now listed as the owner of an inaccurate profile. Your response mightl be that I can edit the merged record back to the correct details, but why should I need to? It was accurate to begin with?

If you are going to go around merging records, please ensure that you do not remove accurate details!

Thanks for the comment and apology-----No, you did not cause me distress-just discomfort.

It's just I prefer to work on the profiles I create by myself-without assistance. Sometimes, I stop in the middle of a task because I had surgery in the not so distant past to remove bones in my hands and I can only work in short spurts. But, I do that because every single profile that I have put here do have multiple sources, and rather than hurry through them, I enjoy going through my records and sources, as I upload them, so that I can figure out how I wish to write the biography sections and figure out who else is listed on that same record. It reminded me of the first painting I painted. I was painting a living room and some girl walked by and snuck in some clouds, the sun and a sky in my livingroom when my back was turned. LOL

When you edited my ancestor's profile, you wrote down that it was unsourced AFTER I uploaded the sources in my ancestor's profile. Please be more careful editing profiles in the future. Thank you.

The sources are in the images folder, as they are scanned documents of original sources. If you click on that folder, you can see the documents.

Thank you, once again, for correcting my spelling. I think that I'll stick to abbreviations from here on in.

Thanks for sharing the link to William Warford. It is both interesting and sad. I just recently discovered the Warford branch of my family, so I know little about them.

Thank you so much for correcting my misspellings (plural - how embarrassing) of Massachusetts in my families profiles. You'd think that I had it down, after going to college there, but sadly, I didn't. MUCH appreciated!
