Hello Lori... I just answered on the US History question. I hope to be able to move forward with the requirements for the pre-1700 certification and badge soon. Pretty new to WikiTree, but have added some information on Ornate Conquistadors to the NM page, and been on the G2G for genealogy page requesting genealogy help. Learning to navigate around the website. Midy Silva helping a mentor. Let me know if there is anything else I need to do to be able to 'pre-1700' so that I can add my ancestors who came in 1598 with Ornate. Have a great week.

Good luck with the Cemeteries project. Mary ~ Volunteer Coordinator
