Hi William,

Took me a while to actually go back to my emails. I am still on Rangers, so will go back before your start time....

It doesn't seem there used to be that huge batch of open hours on Saturday AM Thanks Mary

Hi, William!

Thank you for your participation in October 2020’s Source-a-thon. Your contributions helped us to clear over 57,000 profiles that needed sourcing. This makes our Shared Tree all that much better.

Keep up the great work!

Hi William in reply to your comment. Sorry about the deletion, I must be getting tired, done for today.

No problem, just wanted to be sure you were aware as the wikitree markup can be tricky. I know I've made my share of mistakes.

By the way, a new feature was added to wikitree not too long ago permitting you to reply to comments in place and give notification to the person you are replying too (like I've done here to your message). This helps keep conversations together instead of split across profiles.

Virginia Pre-1776 or Post-1776 or both?

Both I have them in many areas. I added few weavers I found out Virginia stickers on already.


I sent a private message requesting your email.

Hi! I just replaced Magna Carta Project with Virginia Project as manager of George Wyatt & removed PPP & Magna Carta Project as manager of his brother Edward. Posting here in case you wanted to add Virginia Project as manager of Edward too (or remove it from George).

Cheers, Liz

I am not sure about father of Moses Tharp but it was NOT Solomon of MD/DE. Is this what you were asking me?

Am a descendant of many earlier West Virginia settlers who came during the time of the creation of the state--late 1700's to 1863. This creates problems because of the way it was create from part of Virginia, then it was broken down into counties overtime. What this did had settlers who lived in the same area but birth/death/married/events as location changed across creation time of the state until 1863. Catherine Hardman-881 is and example. Is there a way we could created a subcategory to help folks in research since the West Virginia records are kept in the final location of the person. Here are sources with the date of county formation after the breakup of the District of West Augusta in 1784 which became Monongalia, Ohio and Youghany which was the parent counties https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_counties_in_West_Virginia.
