I just wanted to introduce myself as I'm new here. I found this site by accident but see such great value in it. I'm happy I did.

I'm Sherry (Hollingsworth). Researching surnames of Hollingsworth, Wittig, Hyder, Worley, Cagle, Holland, Hamilton and Kinsey.

Please share your personal tips and tricks for research. I use ancestry. I have been DNA tested (72% european west - I've found MANY germans). I'm on gedmatch.com already too.

Thanks and happy connecting.
