Is there anyone researching the name Smart as far back as 1590 when my direct descendant was born in England.

John Smart was born c.1590.  He was my direct ancestor.  He married Sara (Sarah) Vercolje in St Mary's Church, Spitalfields, London.  I am attempting to find a family link with him, but his DOB and marriage date are all I have to go on.  Any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks so much Lynda for those links.  Going back that far can be satisfying, but also frustrating. Considering the fact that John supposedly had his job in London, and met his wife there is encouraging. I think the 1591 link may be the one.

Hi Carolyn,

The best way to find your connection to any ancestor is to research and build from the bottom up. I see that you have added your parents and carried one line back a couple of generations. So you already know how to research, add and connect profiles.

Continue on the way you have started. As you add more ancestors you may run in to a profile already on WikiTree. When you connect that one to your known ancestors you gain all the ancestors from that profile. In that way, which is pretty simple, you may find the link you need to John Smart.

Have fun researching and adding names and come back here (G2G) whenever you have more questions.
