Tell us a bit about your genealogy/family history journey

When I was a child, my grandmother frequently told me stories about her family, and my aunt, Eleanor was interested in genealogy. We spent quite a bit of time at cemeteries. However, my father never talked about his family. After his death, I began researching my paternal ancestors and that evolved into a massive collection of information on the Faulkners. In 2019, I completed the Boston University Genealogical Principals class and then the Certificate in Genealogical Research program. Since that time, in addition to helping others with their genealogy research, I have been testing how I wanted to “permanently” record my own family history, which will primarily be on my website.

Favorite food or beverage

Surnames of interest

Faulkner, Phillis, Swafford, Hooper, Mills, Brack, Thomas, Clifford, Gray, Miller, Seagraves, Felts, Ewing, Savage, Huffman, Irwin, Burton, Howard, Gorden, Decker, Kuykendall, Littell, Moffit, Boyce, Ader.

If you could meet one person from your family tree that died before you were born, who would it be and why?

My third great-grandmother, Phenaty Gray Miller. She was murdered in 1833. Her husband, my third great-grandfather, John Miller, was tried and one of the ones convicted but escaped. He died in Tahoma County, California.

Genealogy pet peeve

People who don’t source. The sources don’t have to be Dr. Thomas W. Jones worthy – just tell us why you think someone was born on that date, and if there is no document attached to support it, where that document may be located. And, “because I know,” for someone who died 100 years ago is highly improbable.

Favorite place where you’ve traveled

From a genealogy/family history research perspective, what would you have done differently?

I have thousands of “detached’ people in my main Ancestry tree, which is now private, where I tested theories or where I deleted a branch too close, and all the people on the end became floating. Several years ago, I created a separate private theory tree, but it was too late for my main tree. I’m considering starting over with a new fully-sourced clean tree but the old tree has thousands of photos and documents I’ve uploaded. It’s a conundrum. For MyHeritage, I deleted the old tree and have started over, creating it as I publish profiles on my own website.

What are you currently working on and what’s next?

 I am currently publishing many of my ancestors’ profiles on my website and will begin publishing a great deal of my research and continuing on my Phillis One-Name Study. I may even write a blog article or two. 🙂
