Communication Preferences: I am interested in communicating private message with anyone who shares the same ancestors. Here is my family tree. Ancestors ancestors
Shortly after the death of our mother, my sister suggested that we begin doing some genealogical research on our mother's family. We knew most of our aunts, but knew little about our uncles or our maternal grandparents.

As one trail led to another, and as the internet made finding records easier, here I am with a full-time hobby. I have connected with so many new family members that a Facebook group was created so that we could share information and stories.

Feel free to contact me anytime. I'm always here.

We Are the Chosen

Profile Improvement Voyager
Candyce has completed the Profile Improvement Project's Voyage
Candyce spends way too much time on WikiTree.
"In each family there is one who seems called to find the Ancestors;

To put flesh on their bones and make them seem alive again;
To tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and would approve.

"Doing Genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but instead a breathing of life into all who have gone before.
"We are the storytellers of the tribe."


My mother told me that she named me "Candyce" as a tribute to Candice Bergen, the young daughter of a person she admired - Edgar Bergen.

It is quite possible that my Paternal line could be followed back to the Wrights of Kelvedon, or Kelvedon Hatch in England, stemming from the son known as "John the Middle".
My Maternal line can only be followed back to early to mid 19th century Virginia. My great-great-grandfather, Jeremiah Jackson, was an emancipated slave.

Early Years

Candyce (Wright) Fulford is a New Hampshirite.
I was born in Claremont, New Hampshire in 1951 and lived with both of my parents in various New Hampshire towns until the age of 18 when I was married.
My first school was a two-room schoolhouse in Temple, New Hampshire. Grades 1 through 4 were in one room and grades 5 through 8 were in another. I clearly remember enjoying my time in first grade as I sang my very first solo and acted in several scenes in one of our school's performances.

My WikiTree Directive

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 and public profiles I'm presently managing to be transferred community members on my trusted list or to the Leadership Team to be farmed out to any interested party or parties.

Candyce, Thanks so much for being part of the Toddlin' Tortoises Team for the 2nd 2022 Connect-a-Thon back in April. Every well-constructed profile added helps to grow a healthier Tree!

Hi! The default text/parameters for the New Hampshire Sticker were recently changed. See Template: New Hampshire Sticker for current information. No need to do anything if you're ok with the sticker's new default text "... a New Hampshirite."

Cheers, Liz

edit - the perils of cut & paste... default text is "a New Hampshirite." (not "an")

Hello Candyce,

We wrote to you about the changes in the Profile Improvement Project (PIP) a couple of weeks ago. If you would like to continue with the Project, we can place you in the Biography Team, Level 1 where you can work on improving profiles from your own watchlist to Level 1 of the Profile Standards.

We would like to hear from you with any ideas or suggestions. If you do not wish to participate in the Project, please let us know. If we don’t hear from you within 7 days we will remove you from the Project, but we will welcome you back at any time.

Hi Debi & Robin:

I would be very happy to be added to the Biography Team, Level 1 team.

Thanks Candyce! You're added.

Dear Candyce,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing its first annual check-in with our project members. We are in the process of transitioning to a team structure. There will be three participant PIP Teams to start -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. There is also the Voyage Team who guide new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team. Please let us know which team(s) you would like to participate in.

For those of you who joined the Project before the Voyage started in late 2018, we would like to invite you to consider a "fast track" Voyage, especially if you plan to join the Biography Team. If you’re interested, choose a profile that you have completed to the best of your ability and compare it to the Voyage Biography Standards. If you’re at Level 2 or better, include a link to the profile in your response to this check-in for a “fast track” review.

We would also like to invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. (When you request to join our GoogleGroup, please be sure to include your Wiki ID). You will find more information on the GoogleGroup.

We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project and WikiTree. The Project’s mission is to:

Make profiles beautiful! We clean up messy biography sections and sources, and try to set standards for attractive, useful, and well-written biographies, starting with those we manage.

We know you’re working on profiles *smile* We would like to hear about successes you’ve had toward the Project’s goals. We would also appreciate any feedback you might have to help us improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or privately via private message to either of us.

Thank you for again contributing to the Sourcerers Challenge in January! As you know, every source added to an unsourced profile improves our One Tree. Thank you for taking time from your own family history to help others.

Hello Candyce!

I’m conducting the 6-month check in for the US Black Heritage Project. Because we are growing so fast, it’s not always possible for me to see what everyone’s working on.

I’d love to hear what you’ve been working on and if you are still happy being a part of the Profile Improvement and Slavery teams. Members can change teams at any time. If you need something to work on, we now have a master task list here:

We now have a project badge! Hooray! As soon as I hear back from you that you’d like to continue with the project, I will add the badge to your profile.

I look forward to hearing from you,


I am busy filling in my maternal ancestors' information. They are all descended from slaves freed by the Emancipation Proclamation. I will take a look at the teams to see which may better fit what I am doing.
Adding to your own family is also a great way to help the project. I don't know if you would want to expand outwards from them. For an example, if you add your great grandfather, you would add all his children, then the spouses of those children and so on. It expands the network of connected family. And since you're connected to the Global tree, every new person related to you add will also be connected.
That’s exactly what I am doing, Emma. It’s been most exciting. I’ve even found two new first cousins because of the research. Our world tree is growing but so is my family!
Perfect! This is what our USBH Connecting Challenge is all about, so we can grow the tree and connect more family. Yay for new cousins!
Hi, Candyce! I saw in the video chat that you were having trouble finding the Discord help page. Here you go:

Hope that helps! :-)


Candyce,Congratulations. By writing and improving 10 biographies in the Biography Builders Challenge, you are qualified to display our Achievement Sticker. Just add

The Global Cemeteries Project is currently undergoing our member check-in and wanted to verify that you are still active and interested in being a member of the project.

I would be delighted to help you get setup in one or more of our collaborative teams!

We use Google Groups for internal project collaboration, so if you are not yet setup for access feel free to submit a join request and we will get that approved as quick as possible. We also ask that members check their follwed tags to make sure you are following the correct project tag (CEMETERIES) so you don't miss any disucssions in G2G.

Hi Candyce,

Thank you for self-certifying for the Pre-1700 badge! Collaboration with Pre-1700 Project members is essential for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles because those ancestors are usually shared by many descendants.

It looks like the United States Project would be a good fit based your recent contributions to WikiTree. Review the project page to learn about resources and guidelines as well as how to collaborate with the project members.

Do you have any questions? Let me know. I'm happy to help! :-)
