I am interested in genetic genealogy and family history narratives. Please visit my genealogy blog, RootsAndAll for samples of my family history narratives.
My areas of interest/expertise:
I am also very active in genetic genealogy research, including helping adoptees find their birth parents. I'm always happy to answer any questions about genetic genealogy and will help anyone with understanding their results.
I am a genealogy addict, and if there's nothing compelling to research in my own tree I often find myself doing other people's genealogy just for fun, researching the trees of my friends, my coworkers, people in the news, etc. Discovering links in a person's tree is like solving a fun and challenging puzzle, and I'm always hungry for more puzzles to solve.
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Family Tree DNA.

Since you are a member of the 1776 project I was wondering if you would be interested in participating in the US Southern Colonies project that is just now getting started? We are setting up sub projects of it, and each of those will need a leader which as a member you can volunteer to do. If there is an area where you have interest or knowledge we sure could use the help! Please see the project page at: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:US_Southern_Colonies#Scottish or if you would just like to participate in shaping this new project, you can join the google forum at: https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=en#!forum/wikitree-us-southern-colonies
Thanks for your consideration!

Free Space pages are wiki pages for supplementing your family history. They can be used to profile anything of significance such as a special pet, a meaningful event, a school you attended, a family heirloom .... They're "anything pages". Not sure what to include in a profile? Check out our Biography Ideas and Styles and Standards help pages. Make sure you remember to add your sources and search for duplicates. If you have any questions, please ask! Robin ~ WikiTree Mentor

There are category links to add to your ancestor's profiles and research links to learn more about your family. The Project is a good way to consolidate the WikiTree ancestors with historic connections to the years of 1773 (Boston Tea Party) to 1789 (ratification of the U.S. Constitution.) All patriot, loyalist, Hessians, French, Native Americans or any other profiles with a connection to these years should be linked to an appropriate category in the Project.Some categories have a template (SAR) to add at the top of a biography. If not, add a category link by putting the category name such as

To make DNA connections with your cousins, WikiTree needs to see your FamilyTree. You should use the pale yellow Privacy setting on any profiles in your DNA family line so that WikiTree can see the Family Tree tab. (Please set all living children to the Unlisted privacy level.)
As you add your family lines and connect to the big WikiTree, you may find you are related to people you never expected. Use the Relationship calculator to see if you are related to me, Cooper-1 with http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:Relationship
Please let me know if you need any assistance.
