New member introducing myself - I found records

Hi, so I just found my mom's maternal family tree. It's a whole book charting it back to about 1754. I'll probably be working on scanning all the pages and will upload it. Hopefully it'll be useful to someone.  I may need help figuring out how to enter the info properly here.

"Geneology of John and Rebecca Gass of Macomb County, Mich. Together With A Short Account of Three Preceding Generations Traced Back By the Author form Records Found In Scotland

Also A Diagram Showing Three Generations of the McGregor Family"

Incidentally, that genealogy of the Gass family has been microfilmed by the LDS and is available online at https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSS3-33V5-P?i=4 (free, but registration required).

Ooh, that's excellent. I'll still do some scans but maybe I can limit it to the parts my grandma put in hand written notes. In pencil so that'll be fun to get the resolution high enough.

But hopefully that solves my sourced/unsourced problem when entering data. I wasn't sure if this bound but unpublished book would count as a source or not.

Hi Lillian, welcome to the WikiTree community! I suggest you upgrade to family member then you can start adding your family and ancestors.

Welcome Lillian!

As David said, you might want to consider upgrading to a Family Member.

Although I haven't looked closely, I found a couple of histories that you might find interesting.
