Ideas for you to help with:

1/1/21  See Mary Leona Smith's son Wally's DNA.  Click here.

1/1/21  Learn how to research using DNA.  Watch videos or read tutorials to figure out how to use DNA to research ancestors.  

1/1/21  Is Ann Woolstenholme the right person?  FamilySearch ID MQD2-L2G 

1/1/21  Dilks, Dilke, Smith.  Just so you know... Charles W Dilks (Smith) was born 9 years before the civil marriage of his mother and father.  His legal name on all English civil records (birth and marriage certificates) is DILKS. He used the surname SMITH throughout his life, adopting the name, Charles Dilke* Smith, which he used on all L.D.S. Church records (in both England and U.S.A.) as well as legal documents in the U.S.A. Because his name was legally Dilks** in England, all of his children born in England are listed as Dilks** on their birth certificates; however all of them used the surname Smith throughout their lives.  Charles Sr never joined the church. His parents Charles Smith and Ann Dilks separated when Ann came to UT. 

1/1/21  Charles W Dilks Smith & Mary Ann Dawkins.  We need to find some histories to add to FamilySearch.  We have a little information on them from their son, Hyrum J Dilks Smith.  I got a bunch of histories from my grandpa Wally Thorup that I'll go through in time.   

Charles KWJW-2T4  Mary Ann KWJW-2TW

1/1/21  When was Elizabeth Smith baptized?  Hyrum J Dilks Smith's history says she was baptized in 1854, but it would be nice to find further documentation on that.  We need to find her history too.  She's got to have a neat story if she was really baptized in 1854, and the rest of her family didn't wasn't until around 1870.   • LCQS-RPM

1/1/21  Who is William Dawkins mother?  KCVG-CSB

11/13/22  GET A DNA TEST!  Better yet... make sure the oldest living family members you have are tested.  If you don't understand why, research why... or just trust me, and get it done before they pass away.  

11/13/22  If you have an AncestryDNA test done, will you let me be a viewer?  My username is AprilThorupOaks, and my email is Click here to learn how! 

TIP:  Do you know how to search by ID number on FamilySearch?  At the top of FamilySearch, click on search, then there will be a drop down where you can click on Family Tree.  On that page need to find where you click to search by ID number.  Can't find it... click here.
