Hello Cousin,

I just learned about you because of the proposed merge which I am going to approve. I hope you will do the same. We are cousins on both my Barnes and Oxford lines. My mother was an Oxford and that branch carries me away from you. We get back together via the marriage of James Oxford and Hannah Barnes. Hannah is buried 5 miles from my home she was the daughter of Handsome Jim Barnes and granddaughter of our Irish immigrant Brinsley. Brinsley is my maternal 4th great grandfather and my paternal 5th great grandfather. Learn more about our family at my Barnes-Oxford website ( Be sure to complete the contact form to receive our newsletter remind me that you are both a Barnes and an Oxford. We have two newsletters.

Hello -

You may have been hard at work getting connected to family members who are already here and adding those who were missing. You probably have at least a few profiles that you manage now.

There's a fast and easy way to access those profiles using the Watchlist. So, this week we're going to look at How to Manage Your Watchlist.

Questions! Just ask me. We want to help!
