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.

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.
