Be wary! As you go adding American ancestors born back before 1776 or earlier, chances are strong that any individual already has a profile in WikiTree (perhaps with a variant spelling or with a birthdate over 10 years different). When my gen-feed shows action on an early American Brinck or Brink (for instance) with an extremely high ID number, I know it's time to look for possible matches to merge.
