Hello Brian

We are third cousins once removed. Our common starting is John Sherwood Herring. I learned a year and half ago that my father was a herring. Talk about WOW, I was raised as a Gonzales fro 70+ years. What a wonderful thing DNA is.

Brian and Rebecca are 8th cousins once removed

Relationships are based on shared ancestry. The first common ancestor we found for Brian Almond and Rebecca Walker is Anthony Herring.

Hello Brian!

Welcome to the New Netherland Settlers Project. Please visit our FAQ and feel free to ask any questions you may have. If you're looking for your ancestors that might already be on Wikitree, check out our Immigrants and Progenitors page, though it is not quite complete and does not reflect all of the profiles that already exist.

Cheers! Carrie

Thank you for your very complete answer to my question on the DNA tests. I am excited to take the next step armed with the knowledge of where I am traveling! Thank you as well for the information on the Ridenhour "way back" history and God bless those who compiled and shared. I have spent most of the afternoon actively reading it and digesting-a gift that keeps on giving.

Thank you for the information and the merge! One of my goals when I started family research was to find an ancestor name in a modern day person and find the relationship. I was successful when meeting a Ridenhour living about 10 miles from me-who had also researched the family. I do not have his records-however-our common ancestor was a Nicholas Ridenhour living in the 1600's.

How's everything going?

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.

Hi Brian, I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Participation in a project is strongly encouraged for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles. I see you have tags for Quaker Ancestry. Why don't you stop by the Quakers project to see how you can participate?

If you are interested in joining, follow the "How to Join" instructions on the project page.

Let me know if you need help with anything. We are glad to have you on board!
