Thank you and Good Luck!! Dorothy, Integrators Project Coordinator.

I have been active on Wikitree, trying to clean up my family files and get everyone entered in. I have not specifically done anything for the Military & War Project, that I can remember except to add some specific info to profiles of family vets.

Catherine Keim/Abraham Angstadt had a son Benjamin K Angstadt, (1807-1879) who married Catherine Yoder (1813-1875), the daughter of Jacob Yoder and Anna Barto. This youngest couple had the same grandparents!
It's no wonder my brain is soooo tired after I spend an afternoon or evening trying to figure out who is who!

You certainly added more than 8 profiles. You added 111 profiles which put you in 8th position on the Mid-Atlantic Team. For the Connectathon, you don't need to use the challenge tracker, as long as the profile was connected to another existing profile on Wikitree. One source was all that was required for the challenge.

I appreciate your sharing the information about Edward and Mary Jane Lookingbill. Unfortunately I have no information to add. My Luckenbill family tree is pretty much concentrated in Berks County Pennsylvania from 1730 on. Occasionally the name is spelled differently "Luckenbiehl, Lookingbill etc) but I have not found any links to Maryland, at least not yet. One branch, most likely the son of one of the two original immigrants aboard the Thistle in 1730 was named John and he did migrate to North Carolina in the late 1700s I believe. Sorry I can't be of more help on this. If I find anything about Noah or Mary Edward and their children I'll quickly share. Thanks for contacting me. Judy Luckenbill Brett

If you would care to assist me or help manage any of the Luckenbill profiles, I will be very grateful. Many of these were orphaned profiles that I adopted and I was trying to untangle the messes. I don't know much about this branch of my ancestry but always love to learn. Thanks!
It's great to have you on board. Enjoy your time here, and good luck growing your branches. To contact me, log in to WikiTree and go to your profile.

P.S. To find reliable sources for your profiles, go to the Family Tree & Tools tab; select Genealogy Research and scroll down near the bottom of that list and select Research with RootsSearch. There are over 20 websites to access from there.
Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz
As Pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects coordinating them is essential. Please ensure there is a location and that the location data matches dates of profiles, avoid abbreviations, add citations & links for sources to support the data, please review these pages Reliable Pre-1700 Sources and Help Sources for Pre-1700
The United States Project and its subprojects for each state, would be of interest. Adding the tag UNITED_STATES will connect you Follow this link for your tags I would recommend you add other surname tags such as:
Explore Pre-1700 Projects list to find one that fits your research focus.

Thank you for adding your DNA Test information to your profile on WikiTree. Your information will be propagated to the profiles of your parents and your ancestors within about 24 hours of being added. It will also propagate to the profiles of the descendants of your ancestors, so they may see your information under the heading "DNA Connections" just as you can see theirs.
Getting started with DNA outlines how to proceed to use your DNA test information on WikiTree and DNA is a link to a collection of links about WikiTree's many features involving DNA.
The DNA Connections list on your profile will provide a visual way for you to find potential relatives on WikiTree who have also added their DNA test information. Using DNA tools at sites like GEDMatch.com, if you find a relative that matches your DNA sufficiently and you have genealogical sources for the intermediate relationships, you can mark the specific parental relationships back to the most recent ancestor that you both share as "confirmed with DNA." For details, guidance, and examples of how to properly document DNA confirmations, see DNA confirmation.
To get the best results, begin adding sourced profiles for your ancestors until you can connect to ancestors already in WikiTree. If you have exhausted what you know on one line, it can sometimes help to add what you know on another line. The more branches you are able to add the greater the likelihood of finding potential cousins to match with. The process of identifying which branch elements of DNA relate to will better enable you to find matches that relate to the particular branches you are researching.
Let me know if you have any questions and have fun!

The GEDCOM will not automatically populate your tree, it generates a GEDCOMpare report which you work through either accepting or rejecting suggested matches. Once you have done this the data from your file will be filled in on the add profile screen so that you can review and make adjustments before saving.
One of our mentors created a tutorial for the GEDCOMpare process that I found very helpful. I hope that you will too.

I am happy to congratulate you for upgrading, you are all set to be able to add and edit profiles now! To help save you time, energy and frustration, please start with our New Member How-To pages.
We do not download DNA Data on WikiTree. We do enter our DNA testing information and it is very easy to do. On the top right of most pages there is an active button "ADD." If you hover over that button there is a drop-down box and the first item is DNA. Click on that and follow the instructions. You can enter your testing company and the type of test such as Y-DNA, mtDNA or Autosomal (Family Finder): Ancestry, FTDNA, My Heritage, and GedMatch are examples of the companies. You will also add your identifying information such as the kit # for FTDNA.
If you have already entered ancestors, it will take about 24 hours for your test information to populate those profiles. As you add more profiles the information will continue to show up on all the appropriate ancestors' profiles.
Here are some helpful links DNA Features on Wikitree, GEDMatch.com, and Getting Started with DNA FAQ.
