Barbara, when one of the profiles that you create matches a profile that already exists on WikiTree, then a merge of the two profiles is required. We are attempting to build one connected tree, not individual family trees. After the merge, you will see that you are still a profile manager, and the person who built the original profile (in the case of Jacobus Crankheyt, that would be me) is still a profile manager, as well.

It is preferable to try to see if your ancestor already exists on WikiTree and, if so, link your family members to that profile. In that way, we all become connected. I hope that answers your question. If not, feel free to contact me again at any time.

"Barbara and Ellen are 6th cousins twice removed. Barbara Houtenbrink and Ellen Smith are both descendants of Theunis Teerpenning." We also have some other common ancestors in earlier generations.

There's only a small chance of a DNA match, but I'm curious... Have you put your data on Gedmatch, where we could compare your AncestryDNA data with my 23andMe data?

Hello Barbara!

Welcome to the New Netherland Settlers Project. Please visit our FAQ and feel free to ask any questions you may have. If you're looking for your ancestors that might already be on Wikitree, check out our Immigrants and Progenitors page, though it is not quite complete and does not reflect all of the profiles that already exist.

Cheers! Carrie

I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Participation in a project is strongly encouraged for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles. Be sure to also check out our Volunteer Hub to see our projects that really need new members!

Let me know, and I can help you figure out if there's a project that might interest you. Welcome aboard, we are glad to have you!

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.

Hi B!

You are now a confirmed member of WikiTree! Thank you for volunteering. Make sure to add more TAGS to follow as you grow the family tree.

Wow!!! You're the First Houtenbrink profile on Wikitree! I bet your 'cousins' on Wikitree will benefit greatly once you add your insightful collaboration and sourced research.

Have fun and make sure to join in the Question of the Week: How many different spellings of your surname have you found and have any helped break down a wall? and share your answer!

If you need additional help, our Mentors Project is a friendly group of volunteers who are glad to assist you with WikiTree-specific problems.

See you in the branches---

Hi B,

Welcome to the WikiTree family! The initial email from us has useful links that will get you started.

WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all work together as one collaborative team. (It still amazes me to create a profile, include what little I know about an ancestor, then get a message that a new cousin has added details that I never had a clue about!)

When you confirm your email address, you have an option to volunteer to add information to WikiTree. If you do, you'll be asked to add tags to your profile. (Tags are surnames, locations, concepts, etc. that you'd like to track.)

A greeter will then confirm your membership, and you'll be on your way!


P.S. I'm always happy to answer questions.

Barbara is 16 degrees from Thomas Edison, 29 degrees from Nikola Tesla and 16 degrees from George Westinghouse on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
