Hi! Name is C. Horton Jaques and I am new to this site.  Not sure what I am to as volunteer so any info greatly appreciated!

My 9th great-grandfather was BARNABAS HORTON, married Ann Smith and Mary Langton. Came to American 1640 on the "Swallow", which from what I have found cannot be proven as it reported on another site the ship had wrecked. BUT my family history search continues on!

You need to be confirmed as a Family Member. Then you'll be able to start adding your family tree. In the confirmation message you will get a link to some New Member How-to Pages which will answer a lot of your questions. I see that there is not a greeter on duty at the present time, so I'll get you confirmed.

 Chris, so glad you joined us!!

Sometimes when you find a roadblock in your research, it is recommended that you make a comment on the person's profile similar to what you added here, and then continue on, as you mentioned. Sometimes 4 or 5 months later (for example) you may find a connection or source to verify what you needed to be verified. You can update your question or post a brand new one at any time.
