The book I use as my main source was self-published in 2002 and mailed to various relatives in 2002 also. The author, my great-uncle, compiled his research by going through many records in libraries, court houses, archives, historical societies, cemeteries and by gleaning information from relatives who had compiled much information on their families. One of his major sources was his aunt Mattie (Powell) Hall (Hall-17097), who was the last living member of her generation of the family. It took Uncle Ernest more than three years to compile the information, and was greatly helped by his family. With this book being self-published, it is unlikely to be found in any bookstores or in any Ancestry.com database. What I have seen through other sources while compiling the family tree here on Wikitree has proven to me that his sources were correct. It may take me quiet a while, but I hope to use his book to compile the family tree compiled herein on Wikitree, and hopefully be of help to others from the same tree who are searching for their roots.
Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!
Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.
Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one or more which best fit your research focus. Review the project pages for special guidelines and to learn how to collaborate with the project members.

You need to have at least one source for each profile you create, so I would look at your source to see if it gives you any clues. Birth and death dates can be marked as estimated/uncertain, before this date or after this date. For example, if all you have is a birth record for a Joe Smith stating he was born in 1800 and his father is listed as John Smith, you know your John Smith was born before 1800. If all you have is a name with no other information, you might want to post in the G2G forum to see if anyone else is working on that person and is able to provide you with more information.

Perhaps you have noticed at the top of your pages on wikitree, your surname followed by a number. This is your profile id. To fix the problem with your brother showing as your half-brother, you will need the profile id's of the two profiles for your mother. Then working from the profile you want to keep, you are going to scroll down to the bottom of the screen on the profile you want to keep. At the bottom left, look for pending merges. Under this category, click on the link for initiate a merge. On this next screen, you will enter the profile id of the other profile for your mother. For reason for the merge, you would put that they are duplicates for the same person. As you created both profiles, you should be able to approve the merge on each of the profiles.

Thank you for your email. I am indeed enjoying WikiTree. Things are going very well. I have not had much time for research as of late and am getting back to filling in my family tree. I have not yet seen the New Member How-Tos page, but I look forward to checking it out as soon as is possible. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
I am sorry you can't have 2 emails associated with your account, as your email serves as your login. However, you can change the email:

Also note that your e-mail address is your WikiTree login. The next time you come to the site you will need to use your new e-mail address.
