I am an architect living with wife and son in San Francisco, My interest in genealogy stems from my general interest in history, the lack of history regarding my surname, (grandfather never spoke of it much) as well as my recent research on my gg grandfather, the 19th century painter Thomas Satterwhite Noble, and ggggg grandfather 18th century Revolutionary War prisoner Ebenezer Smith Platt
Borron family, of Manchester and Warrington England, who immigrated to Missouri

Holtermann family who immigrated to New York, settled in Staten Island and ran Holtermann's Bakery (still exists) from Germany in mid 19th century

I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Also that you made 528 contributions to Wikitree, thank you! Here at WikiTree we like to have our members involved with others; collaboration is key!
Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Here are some projects you might like: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Projects
Also stop by the One Name Studies project, to see if there's already a name study for (surname)? The current leaders for that are Doug Lockwood and Alison Andrus. They would be happy to get you started.
Thanks again for volunteering to work on Pre-1700 profiles!

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there 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 some 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'll 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.

Thank you for joining WikiTree. You might want to edit your TAGS. They are used to find other people searching for the same surnames. It is best to list a single surname per TAG and then some info about the person(s) you are interested in. Happy Hunting, Jess

Welcome to WikiTree! The initial email you’ll receive has helpful links to help get you started.
