I have been interested in family history since I was a teenager. My mother whose maiden name is Bastian was born in Perth, Western Australia and her heritage is Irish, English and Welsh. My father was born in London, England and he has Irish, Scottish, English and German ancestry.
I always try to add as much source material as possible to each one of my profiles that I managing on Wikitree to avoid confusion and mistakes being made. Without source material you are running blind. This is especially true for profiles before 1800, if possible I will always try to add a baptism, marriage or burial record, even better if you can find a Will for one of your ancestors, as this adds more clarity.
As with all family trees, there are profiles that are works in progress and more records are being added to as I go along.
I have added various links as below to free websites that I have found to be very useful in doing research and assisting me in adding source material to profiles.
"Pedigree Resource Files" at FamilySearch are not official records. These consist of user generated family trees submitted by individuals and rarely have sources. Please use caution when relying on them.
