P.S. Just wondering - is your original last name "Barnes" or "Baby Barnes"?

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 Lisa,

Welcome to Wikitree. If you will get into GEDMatch, I have 9 Barnes Kits that I can match you against. All descend from Brinsley (Barnes-1145) who died in NC in 1794 and left many descendants. There are two other DNA tested Barnes lines that originate in NC.

Hi Lisa, Welcome to WikiTree!

Are you using other peoples' trees you've found on Ancestry as your sources or documents you found on Ancestry, such as birth, marriage, death, or census records? '' itself isn't considered a source. If you find information on someone's Ancestry tree you should consider that a helpful hint. You should then find actual sources to document what you've found, and enter information about those documents as your sources on a WikiTree profile. Thanks!

Hey Lisa, have you taken a look at GEDMatch? Upload there and publish your GEDMatch ID, and I'll compare all my relatives with you just in case! I wish you lots of luck!
