My father was born in east Tennessee, and many of my ancestors lived in the colonial South. All of my ancestors immigrated to the US before 1800 from England, Germany, France, Scotland, and Ireland.

Concerning the father, for my own genealogy I normally don't put in people where I have no birth or death date. It is a rule based on the way wikitree is set up and I like to be biased towards pushing people to find more.
Hello Karen, Thank you for your welcoming comments. I am not researching my own family. I am actually a writer of historical fiction based on fact, and as I research different people I often end up here. I find, apart from useful things like d.o.b etc., that I often know more than the entry, yet I am unable to edit and add what I know. Is there any way of doing this without becoming too involved, as I do not have the time for more, yet I am willing to add what I have discovered. Evelyn Tidman
I could add one profile I guess but I don't normally do that for a profile I don't really have a source for myself. I'd need to put in some dates etc. Do you have a handy link to a source online for example? BUT OTOH why not get yourself pre-1500 certified if you are working on this type of period?
There is so much information to digest in one sitting, I feel like my eyes are glazed over. I've been seeking info on my family and in particular, I've had problems locating any on two particular relatives. I had hoped to find something here but do not know where to begin. I hope this will be a place to start. Thanks for your help.
