DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Tommy or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Tommy:

Thank you Tommy for the welcome to the tree, I have so much to learn as it is different from the other trees I have been using. I think I will have trouble with the sources. I will try to add people and hopefully I will get the hang of it.

Hello Tommy, I took my own advice and have been looking into Mary Frances Buch. She's an illusive one. Have you found what you were looking for yet or is she still missing birth and death dates?
Good evening Jocelyn. I’m am still looking for a source document that confirms her birth and death dates and places. Also, I am trying to find where she is buried.

Im going to poke around a little tonight. Wish me luck!
Good luck!!! I hope you can find a record for her.

Hi Tommy, thank you for fixing Rosanna Nadeau profile. It was getting late and my mind went to sleep before my body did. I felt like a warped record, a cassette tape starting to unravel, there you go. Anyway, much appreciated. Ill get the hang of it.

Sincerely, Jocelynn~~ [email address removed]

Hi, Tommy!

Thank you for your participation in October 2020’s Source-a-thon. Your contributions helped us to clear over 57,000 profiles that needed sourcing. This makes our Shared Tree all that much better.

Keep up the great work!

Hi Tommy,

Thanks self-certifying for the Pre-1700 badge! Collaboration with Pre-1700 Project members is essential for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles. Collaboration is essential because those ancestors are usually shared by many descendants.

It looks like the United States Project would be a good fit based on your branch of WikiTree. Review the project page to learn about resources and guidelines as well as how to collaborate with the project members.

Do you have any questions? Let me know. I'm happy to help! :-)

Hi Tommy,

This is a courtesy e-mail to see how things are going. Are you enjoying WikiTree so far?

Have the tips in the New Member How-Tos been helpful? Most of us still have some questions after reviewing them, so don't hesitate to let me know.

Thanks for adopting the Orphaned Profiles. This After Adopting Orphans FAQ explains the special attention those profiles need. Let me know if you have questions on how to find and record sources, merge duplicates, clean up gedcom biographies, or interpret the Suggestions report.

I'm here to help! You can reply to this comment or send me a private message.

I am enjoying WikiTree.

I made it thru the How to #1, but with all the “rabbit trail” links, I keep getting lost and side tracked.

I started on #2, but didn’t get to far with it yet.

I love orphans. 😀 Thanks for the link to the orphan FAQ.

I did stumble across the template of the different sections that make up the written profile area. That was good to know.

Yesterday (Sunday), I downloaded my Ancestry DNA data and uploaded it to I got my kit # and entered it in WikiTree. Today, GEDmatch was thru processing my uploaded DNA data, and I was able to make publicly available the WikiTree link. My question now is what do I do with the information it provides or how do I make use of the information on WikiTree?

I have got to get my printer inked up again so I can have a printed copy to work from for these profile edits.

What I like most about WikiTree is the status indicators. I wish Ancestry had that, but they did just recently roll out tree tags which allows me to basically create status indicators of my choice.

I was able to connect to Henry the VIII by filling in one of my lines (without sources right now), and I just happened to stumble across another WikiTree user, whose picture I recognized as one of my Ancestry DNA matches, who also is connected to Henry the VIII. He is 19 degrees and I am 25 degrees. I didn’t see any close common ancestor, so I don’t know yet how we match via DNA.

This is pretty much my two week update.

Sounds like you are doing great and, trust me, I know all about the rabbit holes *grin* I recommend tying a rope around your waist first and leaving non-edible trail markers along the way.

Your DNA test information will populate in the right column of any ancestors profile within about 24 hours. It will also show up in the same place on any descendant of those ancestors. Use the My WikiTree > DNA Confirmations to see who else has tested and might be good matching candidates. There are more FAQ links on that page which explain how to set DNA as verified. If you have any questions about DNA, I recommend asking questions in the G2G Forum (Help > Forum "G2G") and using the tags DNA and Mentor.

From hard learned experience, I'd suggest getting those sources on the profiles you have already created. It's no fun having to go back to work on old profiles when I would rather be exploring and making new discoveries.

Hi Tommy,

Thanks for volunteering! You are now a confirmed member of the WikiTree community, and can start adding your family. Let me know if you have any questions.

Since WikiTree is different from other genealogy sites, we have a guided tour for new members at New Member How-To. Feel free to work through the How-Tos at your own pace.

Once you add profiles to WikiTree they become searchable and in my experience persons interested in these profiles will contact you and may provide further information to expand your family tree.

Great to have you on board, enjoy, and good luck growing your branches.

Ludwig :)
