Thank you for editing Columbia Co AR. I was hoping that the also defunct Brown Township of Union Co might have been in an area where it could have moved Columbia when the county was formed. But not to be. Union wasn't part of the parenting of Columbia. Oh Well, back to the drawing board! THANK YOU, again. Lynette

Hello Hans, I see you are right about Hans Gerwitz. Unfortunately I don't know how to delete him. I haven't been on wiki tree for quite a while. I also had my dna done, on ancestry.com I would love to compare our findings.

Hello Hans,

I hope you're enjoying WikiTree.

Our vision is to build a collaborative tree. Be sure to look for Duplicates before adding a profile, and always include Sources for your information.

The Help Index covers topics you may have questions about.

Our G2G Forum is where many of our generous members help each other out.

Visit our "Weekend Chat". Say hello, introduce yourself and see what other members are up to right now! http://www.wikitree.com/g2g/173964/weekend-chat-all-members-are-invited-21-22-aug-2015

Of course, I'm here to help in any way I’m able.

Hello Hans, I am confirming you as a member of the WikiTree Community. Please note we are trying to build one Collaborative Tree which means one profile per person. It is important to ensure no duplicates are entered as you add any Profiles to WikiTree.

If you need any help getting started check out the help section from the menu, top left, or head over to the G2G forum and take a minute to introduce yourself in the Tree House, you might also want to check out the introductory WikiTree video that a member created.

Our Mentor Team are a friendly bunch of volunteers who will be glad to help you with specific problems if you have any.

Welcome! Marshall

I'm excited to find this well-governed project!

I've been maintaining my own records at http://www.gerwitz.com/genealogy/

Too many of my records are (relatively) unsourced, based on hearsay. I hope to merge my direct ancestry into the "big tree" for more solid connections.

I noticed you uploaded a GEDCOM. Here's a link to great instructions on adding a GEDCOM to WikiTree that you might find helpful.

If you have any brick walls, collaboration might help bust through. Because WikiTree has only one profile for each person, the further back you go in your ancestry, the more likely cousins will find you and help out. ANY Wiki Genealogist can edit "Open" profiles (over 200 years old = open). There's also a brickwall tag in the G2G forum: brickwall

The help pages give lots of information about the process, best to start with 'Before you import a GEDCOM'.

Hans, do you already have a profile on WikiTree ?

I noticed you plan to or already uploaded a GEDCOM. Here's a link to instructions on the step-by-step gedcom import at WikiTree , including screenshots that you might find helpful. You might also want to check out our gedom instructions

Please keep in mind that our vision is to build a collaborative tree with just one profile per person. Thank you for taking the time to go through your gedmatches at WikiTree when you upload your gecom.

TIP: if your ancestor was born over two hundred years ago, there's a very good chance she/he already has a profile on wikitree.
