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 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. I add some if I can, but I try to keep all that has been added unless I know it is wrong or misleading. And I eliminate the duplicated information. 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 what I do. I always try to keep in mind what I would have wanted to see when I was just starting out in genealogy.

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 wanted was Family History, a story of my ancestors. To do that, I needed to document every reference to 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

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.

   Eliza Jane Sabin
   Octavia Gecosa Sims
   Sarah Cecilia Smith

David Sabin
   Elizabeth Dorwart
   Anna Magdalena Baer
