New member introducing myself

No real problem at this time.  I am working on father and mother's trees.  Mothers maiden name was parsons and is linked to William Parsons Sr. an immigrant from England to Maryland.  Birthdate 1709.  There seems to be a lot of confusion within the trees distinguishing between William Sr. and William Jr.  I am cleaning and pruning that side of the tree.

Welcome to WikiTree, Dewey. You have come to what I think is the best place on the internet to work together to form one large tree. Be sure to let your Greeter know if you have any questions about how to upgrade.

I'm going to edit your post to add Parsons and the locations to get the attention of others interested in the family from those areas.

I look forward to seeing your twig grow within the branches of WikiTree.

Hi Dewey and welcome to Wikitree!

If you are ready to add your family branches, you will want to upgrade to family member. Just answer the questions about your communication preferences and click on upgrade. The greeter on duty will send you information to get you started.

Then you should check out the resources of the England project.

Good luck and have fun!

Dewey: Welcome to WikiTree. There seems to be a lot of confusion online. On WikiTree, there is a William Parsons Junior born in 1709 who died in Virginia. Here is a link to his profile: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Parsons-1554. He may or may not be the person you are looking for. Take a look at his children to see if he is the correct William Parsons. He is the father of William Parsons as well and so that might explain the confusing Juniors and Seniors. I wish you the best of luck in your journey. Anne
