Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz.
Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.
Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or special event. Read the goals and tasks of the project and join if it is a good fit.
Let me know if you have trouble finding projects which fit your focus. Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page. Natalie ~ Pre-1700 Greeter

PS Good work so far! Have you noticed on your ancestor profiles on bottom right is "Research" where you can get sources and more information? Give it a try! For profiles for living people, just go to this link. RootsSearch

I do relate to Henry Adams (b.1583) of Braintree, but not through my Adamses who arrived in the USA around 1900 from England via Canada to do Salvation Army work.
I relate to Henry Adams via his Son Capt. Samuel Adams whose daughter Rebecca married Edward Waldo in 1706. My grandmother was Florence (Waldo) Babcock (b.1889).
Much tree work has been done on the Braintree line and close to half my Waldo line is accounted for , so that is really wonderful! The other Waldo half, is clear from the Lincoln Waldo Genealogy book.
I am "Thankful" for the work that has been done to record things and have really enjoyed the names that have fallen out of fashion. I see we must rely on the "Charity" of others and apply "Patience" to not duplicate.
"Peace" to all.

Our primary vision is to build a collaborative tree with just one profile per person, so please make sure to look for duplicates on WikiTree before adding a profile. Having dates and locations attached to every person assists in our mission as well.
"We cite sources. Without sources, we can't objectively resolve conflicting information." A source provides a way to find out more about the person. Showing sources reduces confusion and duplicates.
Here is what our Sources help page says. It has lots of ideas: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Sources
The Sources Style Guide shows how to enter sources in the biography.
A free and very good website to find sources for your family/ancestors is Family Search.
We also have a Help Index with links to topics you may have questions on.
Thank you, David – WikiTree Greeter, Mentor

Hope you enjoy WikiTree as much as I have. You never know when you will find a lost family member or ancestor. Or maybe find a hidden family secret about an ancestor. Genealogy to me is like being a detective looking for clues into the past.
Sometimes links don't work in emails. If that's happened to you, check the public comments on your profile as the links will work from there.
Please let me know if you have any questions. I'm always happy to help!
