Why hello there! First of all, I am VERY sorry for how bad I am at keeping this up! I have health issues and was able to do a lot of work around it, but I got to a point where I just wasn't able to keep up anymore. I had been working on a grand plan/project to make a profile for everyone in the 1850 census in Knox County and actually got pretty far if I do say so myself, but then not being able to keep up turned into a sort of mess and going forward I'm going to be more selective with adopting profiles and might remove myself as manager from a lot of these profiles that I am not directly connected to.
I'm not sure how much time I'll be able to spend working on here and after what happened, I'm hesitant to commit to much. I've been having some emails get lost in my spam folder or I forget to reply to them, so I apologize if I missed you and thank you in advance for your patience! I'll try to do better with merges and hopefully being more selective with being a manager will cut back with me needing to do that.
Please note that if I make a profile, that doesn't mean that I know a lot (or anything) about that person and am a lot of the time making a place for a person with more information to be able to fill it out. I want to "populate" Wiki Tree so when ancestors or more closely related people find it, they have it set up already and maybe I'll have found something they didn't already have? I remember when I first started here and I plugged in a few people I had on my family tree and what a blessing it was to find all the other connections I had and was able to find how I was related to other people I wouldn't have known about. I LOVE how Wiki Tree works!
I recently had my DNA tested for fun and entered that into Wiki Tree's system. I don't know too much about what I found and am still playing around with it, but if you know more and there's something you would like to know more about, please do let me know :) I have been working on my Knox County connections since that part of the family has more brick walls than my other lines. When I thought about getting back to work here, I have thought about branching out more and working on other lines. Again, I don't know how reliable I can be so I'm sorry again if I'm not able to keep up! Also, I'm not an expert and I am so sorry that I probably don't have answers to your questions! I'm learning along with you all :)
