Hi,

I'm pretty new to WikiTree myself & am a bit confused by anonymous users questions, which there seem to be thousands of.

From my view I can't see anything other than your question (i.e. When was Christina Dixon born? Is she from Durham 1844?), which I can't answer without more info.

I'm guessing that you uploaded a GEDCOM family tree, but the profile of Christina Margaret Dixon, Dixon-1820 from my point of view is totally private, I can't see the tree, and you yourself are anonymous

Could you explain what you're trying to do & we can maybe raise it with more senior members, unless it's just beginners errors?

p.s. Sorry if my answer appeared to be to be discourteous, or to appear to apportion blame on you, it wasn't meant that way. I'm figuring that the problem is more likely to be with WikiTree's default setup for anonymous users and if that's the case I'd like to help them improve it.
 
I'd really appreciate it, to help you & WikiTree, if you could give me some feedback (the more feedback & honesty the better!) including:

Firstly, do you get an email when an answer to your question is posted? I've signed up & I get one, but maybe you haven't given them your e-mail address.

I don't know if your intention was

1) to quickly try WikiTree to see what info they had on your family and then not use it any more
2) trying out WikiTree, maybe with the intention of using WikiTree if it is any good
3) really would like to use WikiTree, in which case we should try to figure out what's going on & get it sorted

Whichever it is, feedback would be appreciated. Once that's done we can maybe get back to answering your original question re: Christina Dixon.

Thanks

Hello,

Sorry it took so long to respond. I guess being anonymous has its disadvantages! I don't think I saw any emails back to me stating I had a response.

I am asking the question because I have a needlework sampler made by a Christina Dixon, aged 12, finished on Christmas day, 1856. I was just trying to find out more about her.

Searching the web, I only found one Christina Dixon that was born in 1844, and that was in Durham, England. So, maybe this is an English sampler.

I'll keep looking. In the mean time, the Antique's Road Show is coming to town in July so if I can get a ticket, I may take it there to see what they say about it.

Thanks,

Kelly
