Lin is the third daughter and third of six children of Calvin Wright and Betty Heath.

The family genealogist, Lin earned an A.A. in Pre-professional studies from Bristol County Community College in Fall River Massachusetts; a B.S. in Biochemistry with a minor in History and a concentration in Microbiology from the University of New Hampshire; and a M.A. in American and New England Studies from the University from the University of Southern Maine (USM-one of the few such programs, ANES was a wonderful program which was recently discontinued. She successfully completed the genealogy certificate through Boston University.

Recently retired as administrative specialist at USM, she is actively serving as historian for her local church, teaches genealogy as part of the Senior College at USM's Lewiston-Auburn College and sometimes for Lewiston Adult Education, is Registrar of the Mary Dillingham-Burnt Meadow Chapter of the DAR, and served on the Board of Directors of the Androscoggin Historical Society. She is currentlyPresident of the Asbury Grove Historical Society.

Lin has presented talks including: "'Death to him was sudden': David Green of Minot, ME, and the 1840 Lexington steamboat disaster" and "A few bad days in Lisbon Falls: April 6-8, 1901."

Lin will teach four workshops for Senior College via Zoom through USM's Lewiston-Auburn campus during Winter 2022: Familysearch, WikiTree, RootsMagic 8, and Newspaper research. In the Spring, she will do a more in depth course on WikiTree as well as her popular genealogy lab. Her tentative plan for Fall 2022 is to teach an intermediate level genealogy course and a second class where she will present some of her genealogial/historial projects: both previous projects and ones she is currently working on.

My WikiTree Philosophy

Now that I have been on here long enough to know what I am doing my plan is to enter all my known ancestors. On the profile for at least one parent I intend to list all known children rather than creating a profile for each child (which is what I did when I first started). I am working to add sources (I still have a few unsourced profiles, but the number is dropping).

The next step after entering ancestors, listing their children, and sourcing profiles will be to add census details for my ancestors.

I will add anyone who asks onto the trusted list for any profile I manage, add you as a manager or, if it isn't my direct ancestor, transfer a profile to you upon request. Send me a message and it would be good to include how you are related to the person whose profile it is.

2022 Year of Connections

Since this is the year to learn about and honor our connections on Wikitree, I have created a space page where I have highlighted some of my WikiTree connections.

Hello,

I am checking in on behalf of the 1776 Project to announce the new project membership requirements and to verify that you are still interested in being a member of the project. All project members are being asked to join one of the project teams and also to make at least one project contribution every 6 months. We are also asking all project members to join the project's Google Group for project communications.

If you are interested in remaining with the Project, please reply to this comment or send me a message, request to join the Google Group, and let us know what team you would like to participate on.

We really appreciate your contributions on WikiTree, and thank you for all your hard work. If you have any questions, please ask. We would also love to hear any feedback you may have for the project.

If we don't hear back from you we will assume that you no longer wish to participate in the project and if so, you could rejoin at any time as is convenient for you.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Hello! Our DNA tests show that we are 1st cousins 4x removed! I'm currently working on digging through the Aldrich genealogies when I discovered this.

Hello Lin,

I believe we may be 6th cousins once removed on your father's side. I would love to exchange research on our common ancestors. Your 3rd great-grandfather George Wright married Martha Shipstone, and one of her uncles on her mother's side is my 5th great-grandfather; Robert Longthorp.

Hope to hear from you, Kind regards,

Katherine Longthorp

Hi Lin- We're 7th cousins through our Holbrook lines... not what I expected! I have a lot of Haskells and Harrises who were in Androscoggin County. I think Barron Harris was the first baby born in Lewiston

Hello Lin,

I have discovered that we are 10th cousins once removed. Edmond Hobart and Margaret Dewey are your ninth, my tenth great grandparents.

I loved reading your profile. I have long admired intelligent, educated women. I am very pleased to meet another cousin.

Sincerely,

Sharon

Thanks for submitting the pre-1700 form.

I'm the Coordinator of WikiTree's Massachusetts Project inside of which some of your research falls.

It looks like the sources you are using are good ones. If you'd like to learn more about the project, visit:

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Massachusetts

There's information there, too, about the types of sources we use (and what we avoid). A good source of Massachusetts information is ma-vitalrecords.org

Consider yourself having communicated with a project-- you don't need to fill out the form again for Massachusetts-related profiles you're working on.
