I'm Debbie, and I'm a somewhat experienced genealogist, having been at it for about 5 years.

My genealogy is a mixture of northern European, being mostly English, Irish, Swedish, and German. I have been able to trace back my Swedish roots for many generations, with many thanks to a distant relative in Sweden. My Irish roots can be traced back to my 3x great-parents, Ann Jane Fitzgerald and Thomas Wellington Humphries (a cooper), who arrived in Canada, from Ireland, in the first half of the 19th century. I'm up against a very thick brick wall with them.

Various branches of my English roots can be traced back quite far, while others cannot. Another brick wall involves Jackson Monroe (2x great-grandfather) who was either born in England, or on the ship over to America in late March of 1842. I can find no trace of his parents, as can other relatives who have been researching this same family.

I hope to make some new inroads at this site!

Debbie in Canada
