I have ancestors from Acadia and Quebec with British Isles heritage. Have you done any y-dna testing? I would be interest to know if we share the same y-dna haplogroup. Let me know if you are interested in testing. I am also a member of the Holmes One Name study here on Wiki.
Thanks, Ryan Holmes

I noticed you have changed privacy settings for some of your ancestors. Please read the Privacy Help Page. Ancestors from even just a couple generations back will be shared by potentially hundreds of descendants. So, they should be set to a Privacy level that allows for collaboration.

I see you are working on merges. Please review our Matching and Merging FAQ to understand your responsibilities in doing merges.
During a merge, the text from the merged-away profile is appended to the end of the text of the merged-into profile. After a merge, you will need to clean up the text by removing duplicate information and consolidating what is left leaving the profile with a single Biography section and a single Sources section.
The Help page on Biographies has a lot of great information on what to include and what to omit in a Biography.
Please also review all other family members for potential duplicates and review any conflicts in parents.
If you have any questions, just let me know.

Welcome to WikiTree. By now you should have received an email with helpful links to get you started on adding your family to ours. WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person and that means we share ancestors and 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 be given an opportunity to volunteer to help document our collective family history. Use the Tags and comments to tell us about your genealogical interests. When you volunteer, one of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership.
Enjoy the experience,
