Just want to say hi

+18 votes
Just wanted to say hi. I am a new member. I work on my family history every day. My husband's family has many records but it has been a struggle. He used to say "your ancestors were all criminals, they don't want to be found". Well, I am finding them slowly. I like finding the live and passed on cousins. This last month I saw someone had saved a document I posted on another site to their tree. When I looked at their tree I saw that they saved it to my grandfather's first wife. I had only her name previous to that. Working together with the person is helpful. My grandfather's daughter from first wife had been told he died.  Now the family knows better and are glad they have more family out there.

Good morning and welcome. Just think of everyone here as your cousin. You probably won't be far off.


Welcome to WikiTree, Jeanne! Thanks for introducing yourself.
Hi Jeanne....Welcome to the Tree!
Hi Jeanne,

Welcome to Wikitree. It is so exciting to find those connections.
Hi Jeanne!!

I'm Darlene (Bissonnette) [Bissonnette-81]. My mum's maiden name is Gillespie. She passed on in 2004. So nice to see someone with the same surname!


Hello and welcome I'm a newbie too

Jeanne, it's so nice to be able to greet you here!  I love to hear stories about connections that are made with living relatives that you never knew existed.  Maybe if I keep plugging away, I'll find some someday.

HI Jeanne,

I'm new here too so it's great to see another 'questing' person find this great site. It's wonderful to find new information about one's family. Welcome!
