Hi Chris, Thanks for your comment on Hannah Gilbert. Only one child listed was born after Hannah's death and that child does not belong to Ebenezer and Hannah. The child was born in Virginia. Have removed that child from Ebenezer and Hannah. Thanks, Janis

Your assistance before we joined WikiTree has been very valuable. Especially the steering part pointing out paths to follow.

WikiTree requires a unique email address for each member. Once that mysterious road block was passed, all issues disappeared.

Hi Chris

Thank you for your welcome and sorry I haven't responded before. My computer broke down bigstyle and my husband has had it in bits all week. My next challenge is to enter the names of my ancestors as I haven't found out how to do that yet! Most of my ancestors on the Gilbert and Gregory side are from North Petherwin which is now in Devon and Warbstow. Looking forward to seeing what happens next. kind regards Ann

Hi Chris,

Welcome to WikiTree! The initial email from us has helpful links that will get you started on WikiTree, which is not like any genealogy site you’ve ever used. WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all 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 see a Volunteer option on your profile page. Click that and leave us a short message here on your profile about your genealogical interests. A Greeters Project volunteer will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way!

Welcome to the family! We’re really glad you’re here.

Have fun!
