Linda, You come highly recommended as a mentor. My name is David Reynolds. Here is my Wiki profile: I'm a beginner on Wikitree. I registered as a Guest Member, and I want to build my family tree. I contacted Laura and Ron someone, and Laura told me to volunteer and sign the Honor Code, but no matter how much I try, I cannot get beyond my Guest Member status. Would you please give me step-by-step instructions on how to proceed? I need a kind of "Beginning Wiki for Dummies"! It would be great if you could email me at with simple instructions. Thanks much! -David

Thank you, so much Linda, for your assistance with integrating a merge - for taking the time to help and for the changes you made.

For whatever reason, I can not always find answers to the questions I have in the Sources and Style Guide. So your guidance answered several questions I have had.

Your assistance is a real blessing. Thank you, again.

Mary, you are very welcome. Let me know if you need help with another one or have other questions.
Thanks for merging William Hale. However, his obit said he was born in Ireland, moving to Scotland when married.
