New member introducing myself

Hello,

My name is Pamela Piercy. I am new here and would love to connect the dots of my family tree. I know basic info on grandparents and some great grandparents. Would love to find as much info as possible. Stumbled on this page when searching for my great grandparents info. I am form California, planning a trip to NC in two weeks and plan to visit the graves of my grandparents and even stop at my great grandpas old work. He was the editor of the Morganton NC news paper for many years, according to my dad. I am hoping to maybe see some pictures of him. Wish me luck.

I don't know how to add family to my tree, however I did find my grandparents on my dads side on here. Id like to find more family. Does anyone know how I can go about adding people?

Work up the tree from your own profile, starting with your mom and dad.  It's easiest if you have written down their birth/death dates and locations, their marriage date and a source citation first.

To avoid duplicates, first Wikitree asks you to enter name, birthdate and it will give you a list of others with that name.  If your parent isn't one of them, enter all the information you can and hit save.

Pamela, you're absolutely going to love WT. Give yourself time and patience as you learn the ropes - it takes a wee while, but you'll get the hang of it. I can promise you, you'll have a lot of fun growing your tree, especially as you connect with the wonderful genealogists here.
