Howdy!

My name is Rhiannon and I have just started researching my ancestry/genealogy and since I have hit a wall on FindAGrave, I figured it was time to explore more websites!

I currently live in Texas, I do modeling and acting in my free time, and I work at a circus school doing front desk things. I am incredibly new to all of this, so I have a lot to learn! According to my dad, his fathers side is easy to trace, but not so much his mothers. I havent even begun to look in to my moms side yet!

I hope to meet some distant family perhaps but mostly I want to connect with my families roots. I know we are mostly Scottish/Irish, but I have only found as far back as a man born in 1730 in Virginia.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Welcome to WikiTree!

I'd say you're not doing too bad if you can get back to 1730 so soon.

Welcome!

A good place to start looking for documents is https://www.familysearch.org. The website has scanned copies of the United States Census from 1790-1940 among other items. Registration is free.
