Hi Malcolm, Thanks for your patience on the Ontario categories. I'm the Ontario Project coordinator and just recently joined the Categorization Project. You could ask Natalie, that project's leader, about U.S. categories. Cheers, Laurie

Hi! I saw your comment on Space:Flags. The image that you provided the link for is already available. It's the one marked Hong Kong (1876-1910) on this page. (The url for the image you posted had 1941 and 1945 in the name.)

Cheers, Liz

Hi,

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, here 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 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 will 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.

You are now a member of the WikiTree Community. Please note we are trying to build one Collaborative Tree which means one profile per person. It is important to ensure no duplicates are entered as you add Profiles to WikiTree - if you have pre-1700's ancestors to add please read our Pre-1700 profiles info.

If you need any help getting started check out the help section from the menu, top right, or head over to the G2G forum and take a minute to introduce yourself in the Tree House. You might also want to check out the introductory WikiTree video that a member created.

We also have Mentors to help too.

I was born in Hull, Yorkshire, England in 1958. Currently I live in Hong Kong and am studying spoken Cantonese at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Early attempts to trace ancestry led to my great-grandfather William Cowan, born on 28 August 1858 in Airdrie, Lanarkshire, Scotland. His father was Adam Cowan, date of birth unknown. I wish to explore this part of the family tree.
