Communication Preferences: I am interested in communicating private message with anyone who shares the same genealogical or historical interests. My family tree is on another website.
2021 - I have just begun to really look at my Cajun ancestry and sadly lost the chance to ask when my grandparents, great aunts and uncles, and great grandparents were alive in New Orleans, Lafayette and Breaux Bridge. My husband's family appears to go all the way back to the Mayflower but early California / Southern California is of interest.

Hi Tracy,

I appreciate that you're making an effort to include sources on the latest profiles you've created. But you need to go a step further for WikiTree-- show us the citation, don't just tell us you have it. Here's a brief discussion in G2G that explains it and includes a link for additional (official) information: AND, you can always ask! Don't be a stranger!

Hello Tracy,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Pre-1700 ancestors can be shared by many descendants, so collaboration is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.

The Acadians Project may fit your research focus. If not, use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find other possibilities. Review the project page to learn about resources and guidelines as well as how to collaborate with the project members.

Have questions? Ask in the comments section of my profile.

Remember to cite reliable sources in pre-1700 profiles you manage, or edit. (See: Pre-1700 Reliable Sources).

Hi Tracy,

I forgot to mention that you and I are 7th cousins, according to the relationship finder at the bottom of the page! So don't be a stranger! PS: if you're looking for an easy way to improve your profiles, with a free guide through WT and genealogy, sign up for the Profile Improvement Project's PIP Voyage. They will take you through building and sourcing two of your own managed profiles, with lots of how-to advice on using the many WikiTree features and apps.

Hi Tracy, and welcome to WikiTree from the Louisiana Project! One of our members noticed you're adding Louisiana families, so we wanted to let you know about some of the resources available to you. Check out our project pages,, for lots of helpful information. We have a lot of good genealogists working in this area, so be sure to check for duplicates before adding new profiles -- a lot of the work has already been done. At some point up the line I can almost promise you your Louisiana and Acadian ancestors are already here--you just need to connect up. That's important, because duplicates here are discouraged. Also, and more important, you need to add a source to prove any fact you state on a WikiTree profile. For modern profiles WT isn't as picky, but anything in the 1800s needs a specific source citation-- just like the ones we had to do on our high school term papers. Let me know if you need any help!

Hi Tracy and thank you for upgrading, 😊

I am very pleased to welcome you to the WikiTree family, your contributions will go a long way to joining the world together.

It is best to start with the New Member How-To pages, they will save you a lot of time and frustration.

I am here to answer any question you have, no matter how trivial you may think it is. There is no such thing as a silly question. Please add as much information as you can, it all helps to turn a “name” back into a person. I hope you enjoy the site as much as I do.

Happy tree climbing
