Hello Cousin Martha,

I notice you haven't really been active and am hoping to entice you to help grow the Lanier Tree here on wikitree. I have never before known about the Lanier connection to my Seal Family out of Washington Parish, Louisiana and was excited to say the least to make that connection. I have a lot of research to do but with cousins like you helping out....well wow.......just think what we can get done. Anyway, wanted to re-invite you to wiki-tree and also to encourage you to research and add those elusive ancestors we all have. It's great being a genealogist now days....even if amateur like me. huh?

Hi Martha,

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. Berry Henderson ~ WikiTree Mentor

Hi Martha,

Thanks for joining WikiTree!

As a mentor I'm here to help. If you have questions or problems with WikiTree, post a comment on my profile page or send me a private message.

  • Remember to include locations and sources in new profiles whenever possible.
  • Our vision is to build a collaborative tree with just one profile per person, so make sure to look for duplicates!
  • If you have royal ancestors, contact the EuroAristo Project to see about connecting to pre-existing lines.

Hello Martha,

I hope that through building your Family Tree here on Wikitree that you are able to find out who all those people in those pictures are! It certainly is exciting isn't it?

When you have some free time, please read through Getting Started. It will help make navigating the site easier.

Good luck and I look forward to seeing what you discover!

I live outside of Memphis, TN. I have been playing around with for several years and love it. I recently found the last living male of shared great great grandparents who did a DNA test to help us go back to the French Hugenots! I can spend hours looking for relatives and reading their stories. I have a box of photos from the late 1800's/early 1900's of relatives with NO names on the back - so frustrating. Somebody out there knows who they are. I found a relative on a visit to tiny Pounding Mill, VA and when I pulled out an 8x10 picture from the 1800s, she had the SAME picture upstairs!!!!! Still gives me chills.
