My oldest son
I have been interested in Genealogy since I was 14 and was lucky to ask my Grandmother about the family. In addition, we had a family member very involved with documenting the family as well. In 1985, James S Fisher wrote a book on my family called the Legacy of Adam Fisher and I recently acquired a copy of the book. It is my goal to translate the entire book into my family tree with corrections as I find them.

Congratulations on being Pre-1700 certified! Based on your pre-1700 ancestors, it looks like your going to be working on profiles that fall under the Irish Roots Project and the US Southern Colonies Project.
Project participation is strongly encouraged, so check out the project and add the Irish_Roots and Southern_Colonies tags to your profile. That way you'll see all of their discussions in your G2G Feed and any changes to related pages.

You've been a member of WikiTree for about a week now so I thought I would check in to see how it's going. Have the How-Tos been helpful or left you with questions?
If you do have questions, I'm pretty good at finding answer or at least finding someone who knows the answer. Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page. I'll get back to you by the end of the day.

You are now a confirmed member, and you can get started adding your family members.
As we've said, WikiTree is quite different from other genealogy sites. So, we've put together a guided tour to help you learn how to use it. Your first stop is How to Start Climbing Our Tree.
Tomorrow, you'll hear from a Mentor who will check in to see how you're doing and answer any questions you might have.
Next week, you'll get another message with your next stop on the guided tour.
You can also meet some of our members by joining in the fun with our Question of the Week in the G2G forum: Have you attended a family reunion this summer?

Welcome to WikiTree! The email we just sent has helpful links to get you started.
WikiTree is different than other genealogy websites because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we share ancestors and work together as a BIG collaborative team!
What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree?
When you confirm your email address, you’ll be given an opportunity to volunteer to help document our collective family history. Use the Tags and comments to tell us about your genealogical interests.
When you volunteer, one of our Greeters will confirm your membership. Then you'll be able to add your family to the tree!
We’re really glad you’re here.
