New member introducing myself

Hi everyone.

I did sign up here a few years ago, played around a bit, and wondered off (apologies for that). But now I know more about the mission, and I'm really excited for more collaboration and connections. I have been working on my tree for a couple of decades now, and have made a few tentative (some unhappy) attempts at sharing info, but have mostly been working solo. I'm looking forward to learning from others and really testing my old assumptions as I contribute.

My family has mostly been based in Nova Scotia (Weir/Wier) and New England (back to Philip Sherman of Rhode Island), Prince Edward Island (Sneeston/Sneaston of Yorkshire, Dewars of Scotland), Newfoundland (oh so many Pikes but also Billard/Villard in France). I'm really obsessed with those Sneestons at the moment.

Anyway, nice to meet you all - Katherine

Thanks Peggy. This place is HUGE! I've already found a few places I'm excited to contribute. Although so far I'm just getting my brain wrapped around having sources show up (three checkin fails before I noticed the Preview) so I've got to get a little farther up the learning curve first, maybe.

There's a lot to learn at first but take it one step at a time and I am sure you will be up to speed in no time!
