New member introducing myself

I am glad I found this site. I do hit brick walls and I do need help on some items. My interests center around my paternal side (Henriksen) in Charleston SC and Riley and Turner around the Orangeburg/Barnwell/ Bamberg SC area (actually the ancestors didn't move, the designations of location changed). I belogn to the Orangeburg German-Swiss Genealogical Society, the Orangeburg County Historical Society and have had DNA done at ftDNA, Ancestry and 23andme.

Welcome Gene. My maternal ancestors were Charlestonians. I'd love to help you with your genealogy.
Hello Gene! Welcome to WikiTree! Although some of my family and a lot of my husband's family originated in South Carolina, none of the surnames you mentioned are in my database but you never know, we may link up somewhere along the way. Best wishes with all you hope to accomplish here on WikiTree!

Welcome Gene,

Looking forward to seeing your branch with sourced profiles here on Wikitree. I'm sure there must be some connections. Don't hesitate to ask for help, Wikitree is a bit different (better we hope) than other websites.

Good luck with contributions to WikiTree. I have a Riley ancestor from New York, Mercy Nancy Riley born 1801 (Gr Grandmother). She has an active line of descendants but her in-laws are listed as her parents. I hope you enjoy persuing your family ties.
