New member introducing myself

I found my grandfather James Porter quite by accident when on Google.  I was able to identify him because I knew his mother's maiden name was Birch.  I was able to contact a distant relative via Wikitree and received a reply giving me information about his family.  Porter is my maiden name, I am married and my married name is Green.

A warm welcome to you, Margaret!  Wikitree can be a lot of fun, great people on here.  And so much to learn it can be a bit overwhelming, so if you have questions bring them to someone in the chat and they will point you in a direction or supply an answer. Good luck with your genealogy searching!
