New member introducing myself

Hello , my name is Pat.  Although I have had a tree on Ancestory for years, I am new to WikiTree.  I have hit a brick wall with my  Donovan family in Ireland.  I have had much better luck with my Rhoads line.  The Rhoads/Rhodes family immigrated from England to Mass Bay Colony to Rhode Island---and my line to Ulster Co NY.  We all know how hard it is to keep families, and members who have the same name, straight.  

I know we can all help each there.
