I am a retired commercial carpenter in Indiana, PA and have been interested in genealogical work my entire life. My family pioneered in this area in the 1700's. Both of my parents were involved in collection of family pages at family reunions, and gave me a good start to continue the legacy. My research families include: Cribbs; Duncan; George; Stewart; Henry; Marshall; Mack; Robertson; Ling; Caldwell; Lowman; Blakley... I also contribute information to ourfamtree.org, familysearch.org and findagrave.com.

I want to help! Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page or send me a private message. Sometimes links don't work in emails. If that's happened to you, check the public comments on your profile. The links will work from there.

PS Good work so far! Have you noticed on ancestor profiles on bottom right is "Research" where you can get sources and more information? Give it a try!

You are now a confirmed member, and you can get started adding your family members.
WikiTree is quite different from other genealogy sites. So, we've put together a guided tour to help you learn how to make your way around more easily.
Next week you'll hear from a Member who will check in to see how you're doing and answer any questions you might have.
I hope you love the collaboration here as much as I do!
