Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1976; with a mix of Nova Scotian and Newfoundlander ancestry that goes back a number of generations. A 23andMe test indicates my ancestry is primarily western European---British, German, and French, with a little bit of Native American and African. Grew up, mostly, in Hants County. Spent several years in Japan, and then in Melbourne, and Brisbane, Australia. Now living in Los Angeles, California.

I'm wondering if you can help me link a profile you manage to my husband's tree through a large number of orphaned profiles? I've already adopted a few but I'm wary of straying into a minefield of gedcom paths I can't follow but in the simplest terms you are my next link through the weekly profile steps of separation?
I can see you manage profile Pynn-1, Virtuous Maria Pynn? my husband is linked to the wider tree through her marriage to simmons-2038 and all their descendants! Both them and the wider tree need adopting and cleaning up from gedcom; I'm wondering if maybe you could help me a little please, if you have an interest?

For your info, Thomas Frick is in my wife's genealogical line. She, and I, were both born in Newberry County, SC. Her lines have been traced back to a number of the early German settlers in the Dutch Fork (Lexington and Newberry Counties) area. In addition to the Fricks this includes Epting, Fulmer, Shealy, Mayer, Wertz and Dominick. As you may know, the term Dutch Fork has nothing to do with people from The Netherlands. It originally referred to the Germans who settled there as the Deutsche Volk, meaning German people. Over the years Deutsche Volk become the Dutch Fork. In the 1731-1765 time period the area was known as Saxe-Gotha, due to the number of German settlers.
