Site shows Hannah Hunter Handy Mosher with 1 child,  she had 2.  Why aren't  her daughter Lucretia's descendants listed?  I am a descendant of Lucretia Handy Barnhart.

Why because you haven't listed them Merrie. That's why we call it a collaborative tree. Everyone has the fun of adding family and friends and acquaintances etc. Welcome!!!!

Welcome, Merrie!  I'm so glad you volunteered to add Lucretia, her children, her cousins,  aunts and uncles and great-grandparents.  I guess your cousin wasn't interested in your line.  You may be the only person alive who is interested in saving their history!

It appears you have not yet volunteered and signed the honor code to become a full member and add to our tree.

I don't know how to list the ancestry.   It is found in most genealogy sites.   Lucretia Handy married David Barnhart.  Their son Henry David Barnhart married Lydia Davis.  Their daughter Roxana M. Barnhart married David Milroy Fuller (descendant of Ensign Thomas Fuller of Dedham, MA).   They had a son,  Melroy Albert Fuller,  who married Elizabeth Jane Taylor.  They had 1 son and 5 daughters:  Frederick, Nellie, Mabel,  Hattie, Elizabeth Jr., and Ethel.  Nellie married Dan Carey,   Mabel married Emory Knotts,  Frederick married Nellie Ursula Rice,  they had 1 son and 3 daughters:   Fred Jr.,  Maye,  Helen, and Dorothy.   Can't say more,  Fred Jr. was my father and most of the descendants of Fred, Maye, Helen, and Dorothy are still living.
I just found this site.   I haven't had a chance to register or figure out how to do much yet.

This is a different kind of site.  We don't "list" people (or shouldn't).  The goal is to have one accurate family tree for all humanity (lofty goal).

Complete the registration process and then we can help you to research and add members to your tree.

Each person added needs to be documented with sources (references) shown to prove relationships (husband to wife, parent to child).  If you say someone was born on (date), there should be reference to the birth or baptismal or death record that shows that date.  Many of these documents are available online.

We can help you learn how to find references and build out your tree, but it will require patience on your part.  This site is free (and free of advertising) because it is comprised of volunteers.

In addition to sources, each person profiled deserves a biography, a memorial to the individual who helped to shape us.  Just listing David Barnhart beget Henry David Barnhart, who beget Melroy Albert Fuller, etc. is very boring and tells us little.

Take a look at this profile . . . a nice example of what we are trying to do here:

Anna Cordelia Magrath

This is one like what you could do for your more contemporary father:

Lawrence Moore, Jr.

I was curious about the incompletion of your info,  that was all.    I have no interest in going through the long 'prove it' process.   I already have with the Mayflower Fuller Society with documents and dna  (yes,  they accepted my info).  Your group sounds a bit unpleasant,  rude comments when they were uncalled for.  Not interested.
