Hello! Happy to see other Ohnesorge (n) folks here! If ever you have questions about my place in the tree, it is from your Carl Wilhelm's sister, Bertha. I will try to get the line uploaded ASAP. (Wiki source rangers come if you aren't fast!)

How's everything going?

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.

Hi Matthew, I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! This certification requires participation in a project related to the profiles you wish to edit. I see you are interested in Pennsylvania. Why don't you stop by the William Penn and Early Pennsylvania Settlers project, (currently led/coordinated by Kitty Smith), and theOne Place Studies project (currently led/coordinated by Carrie Quackenbush), to see how you can participate? I'll let the leaders know you are newly certified! Let me know if you need help with anything. We are glad to have you on board! David-Volunteer Coordinator
