Cynthia Denise Griffin has English ancestors.


I compiled my first family tree as a 5th grade elementary school project. I am fortunate that both sides of my family had historians interested in our family tree and had researched our ancestors before me. This has allowed me to verify family lines and increase our family tree branches.

I am interested in early US History and settlers. My direct family lines have been the US for 7 to 11 generations and settled in the Colonies of CT, MD, NC, NJ, NY, PA and VA. All lines of my tree had immigrated into the Colonies in the 1600 and 1700s.

I have many direct great-grandfathers, uncles and cousins who fought in the US Civil War, Confederacy, with many uncles and cousins as well, serving in NC and VA. Some KIA and others who were POWs who died at Point Lookout in the Union POW Camp and buried in a mass grave on the location.

Another interest is European history. Tracing my lines from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, into France, Spain, Germania, Scandanavia, Russia. Royal lineages and intermarriages of these families have spread my tree into many countries during the medieval period and prior.

I have a couple of great grandfathers who were sent to the US Colonies as indentured servants during a time when England was trying to populate the colonies.

Here are the twisted roots of my tree...

Welcome to the 1776 Project (, a subproject of the Military and War Project:

There are category links to add to your ancestor's profiles and research links to learn more about your family. The Project is a good way to consolidate the WikiTree ancestors with historic connections to the years of 1773 (Boston Tea Party) to 1789 (ratification of the U.S. Constitution.) All patriot, loyalist, Hessians, French, Native Americans or any other profiles with a connection to these years should be linked to an appropriate category in the Project.

If you haven’t already, please set your preferences for your Tags Followed to include 1776 Project and any other tag terms that you wish to follow:

Some categories have a template (SAR) to add at the top of a biography. If not, add a category link by putting the category name such as
Cynthia Denise Griffin participated in the American Revolution

for those who bore arms in the Revolution. Thank you.

This is something you might want to try for keeping track of your family. Since I am interested in the affect of the Civil War on families, some of these are not my direct ancestors. This is Rev War but is only direct ancestors (and one uncle I think). This is a space page of ancestors from various wars under one family name. For units, look here and here and here

I would be glad to review your Civil War profiles! See the project page for the templates. There is one that goes above the bio which is a project box and the template with the places for info goes below the bio. It won't work otherwise. It will be translated into the project box.

Our family's genealogist documented our ancestry back to the 1500s (and further), maybe ten thousand names, mostly German. Some of your ancestors just might be included.

From your list, he's published data on: Drechsler; Eller (if spelled Eichler, Eilers, Ellner); Getchy (if Gautzsch, Gentsch, Geschke, Getzsch, Goedecke, Goetze, Gotzsche, Koeltzsch, Koitzsch); Hamm (if Hahme, Hammer); Huels (if Hulst); and Kesler (if Gossler, Kaussler, Kessler).

See WikiTree's Drechsler page (, if you haven't already. About forty of them are from our genealogist's work (from the early 1600s to the late 1800s) - they're one of our eight main ancestral lines.

Let me know if you'd like further info or details; happy climbing!

Hi Cynthia,

Welcome to WikiTree! The email we just sent has helpful links to get you started.

WikiTree is different than other genealogy websites because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we share ancestors and work together as a BIG collaborative team!

What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree?

When you confirm your email address, you’ll be given an opportunity to volunteer to help document our collective family history. Use the Tags and comments to tell us about your genealogical interests.

When you volunteer, one of our Greeters will confirm your membership. Then you'll be able to add your family to the tree!

We’re really glad you’re here.
