Hi Josephine,

Would you mind setting the last name of Mary (Unknown-517533) the wife of George Knight to Bridger as per the marriage record sourced on her profile? Or you could accept my Trusted List request and I'd be happy to do it for you.

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz, Josephine!

Pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, coordinating with others is essential.

The Australia Project seems appropriate based on your family tree. Leaders are Irene Dillon, Paul Bech.

Or use the Pre-1700 Projects list to review other possibilities. This is also to be seen at the top of your page, 4th topic, under<Find> and <Projects>.

Have questions? Just ask on my page.

Hope you enjoy WikiTree as much as I have. You never know when you will find a lost family member or ancestor. Or maybe find a hidden family secret about an ancestor. Genealogy to me is like being a detective looking for clues into the past.
