I have been doing genealogy and Family History for over 17 years now. What I really like about the Family Search Wiki is being able to help others. The greatest strenth of the Wiki is that everybody can add in their two cents to make it better. But that also means things can begin to look a little haphazard.

What I want to do more than anything else is to organize the information to make it clear and useful.  If information is wrong or misleading, I remove it. And I eliminate duplicated information. Otherwise, I keep previously added enteries. I add my own information if I can. Then I format it, I particularly like bullet points. If anyone else has a better way to format the information, then go for it. Just make it clear and useful.

I hope no one is offended by my editing of their efforts. I always try to keep in mind what I would have wanted to see when I was just starting out in genealogy. I do this editing for those who are new and don't know where to look. This wiki can be a great resource for them.

I am indebted to many previous genealogists in my family. I did not start from a blank form, I knew who my ancestors were, in some cases back to the 1600s. The problem I found was, there was little or no documentation, so that is what I started doing.

I quickly realized what I really wanted was a Family History, the story of my ancestors. To do that, I needed to document every reference I could find on my ancestor. Mostly I have researched my Sabin line. But I am now researching my Tietjen and Sandoval lines as well. Some of the surnames I am researching are the following -

Spouse = Sandoval, Madrano
Mother = Tietjen, Cluff, Hatch, Kruger
Father = Sabin, Shumway, Smith, Dorwart

Will gladly share my histories for the following families. Just let me know -

Parley Pratt Sabin
   Eliza Jane Sabin
   Octavia Gecosa Sims
   Sarah Cecilia Smith

David Sabin
   Elizabeth Dorwart
   Anna Magdalena Baer

   Elizabeth Nichols
   Lydia Cady

   Mary Wright
   Martha Allen
