I was born in New York and currently reside in Nevada. I began researching my family history in 1993. In 2003 I became an avid quilter. Both hobbies keep me busy and quite broke.
There was a non paternal event in my father’s line that changed the focus of my research in 2017. Currently I am working through a similar brick wall using DNA on my maternal line.
My long-neglected (but not forgotten!) blog is My Family History Files where I share about using OneNote to aid in your family history research.
About my name... My LNAB is not the surname that represents the family line I belong to. DNA shows a non-paternal event two generations back. I consider myself a Schraven.
My WikiTree projects include:
Orphaned profiles I have adopted that need more research... Can you help?
“To aid WikiTree in the administration of my account should I be incapacitated, or in the event of my death, I hereby give permission for all private profiles I'm managing to be transferred to the following WikiTreers, whether or not they are currently on the Trusted Lists: Klein-2634, Klein-2635, Klein-2636 or Klein-2637.”
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Ancestry DNA.

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!
Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.
Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or special event. Read the goals and tasks of the project and join if it is a good fit.
Let me know if you have trouble finding projects which fit your focus. Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.
