Admittedly it gets confusing with M.. Margaret McGillivray. One is d/o Duncan & Catherine McGillis; the other is d/o John D. McGillivray & Hannah McDonald.

The d/o Duncan McGillivray & Catherine McGillis married Ranald "the vagabond"McDonald in 1890. Ranald is s/o Alexander s/o Ranald Mor McDonald my great great grandfather who emigrated in 1817 from Ireland.

I agree. This Margaret McGillis is already a bit vague with Janet McMaster her half sister married to another John McGillis.

We now know the Ranald McGillis of the Old Donald line went to Georgia and his wife is Hannah. The other Ranald McGillis as uncle of Fr. John of the Diary is well and reliably documented and belongs to the Donald of Donald of Donald of Andrew line DDDA. Curious for me is that this Ranald and his brother John are the separate grandparents of Donald and Annie, my great grandparents who were 2nd cousins.

Hello --

We've made a change in how the tutorials are sent to new members. Instead of weekly messages you can now work at your own pace.

How is it going so far? Have the How-Tos been helpful or left you with questions?

We want to help! Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.

Hi John

It's time for your next stop on the guided tour. This week, we'd like to show you How to Join in the Community. Plenty of opportunities to get involved through social media, our forum, and projects.

Be sure to check out the One Name Studies Project to see if anyone has started a project for one of the surnames in your family. Don't see one? Follow the instructions for starting your own!I

For your family research you might like to explore active projects to find a project to aid your research.

Please let me know if you have questions. :-)

Hi again John!

We hope you enjoyed your first stop on your guided tour of WikiTree and were able to make good use of the things you learned.

Our next stop will give you some pointers on how to make your profiles stand out: How to Edit a Profile.

As always, your questions are welcome.

Hi John,

Congratulations on being Pre-1700 certified! With the certification comes a strong recommendation to choose a project which best fits the pre-1700 profiles you'll be working on. Since you've joined recently, you'll be getting tour stops introducing you to all kinds of WikiTree wonderfulness for the next several weeks. I'd recommend waiting for the Week 2 tour stop which includes information about projects.

In the meantime, be thinking about the particular time periods, locations, and topics in which you're interested. Do you have some historically-significant ancestors? Take a look at the list of [active projects] for ideas.

Have questions? Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.

You are now a confirmed member, and you can get started adding your family members. As we've said, WikiTree is quite different from other genealogy sites. So, we've put together a guided tour to help you learn how to use it. Your first stop is How to Start Climbing Our Tree.

Tomorrow, you'll hear from a Mentor who will check in to see how you're doing and answer any questions you might have.

Next week, you'll get another message with your next stop on the guided tour.

You can also meet some of our members by joining in the fun with our Question of the Week in the G2G forum: [

Were any of your ancestors involved in the American Indian Wars?

Hello John,

Welcome to WikiTree! The email we just sent has helpful links to get you started.

WikiTree is different than other genealogy websites because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we share ancestors and work together as a BIG collaborative team!

What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree?

When you confirm your email address, you’ll be given an opportunity to volunteer to help document our collective family history. Use the Tags and comments to tell us about your genealogical interests.

When you volunteer, one of our Greeters will confirm your membership. Then you'll be able to add your family to the tree!

We're really glad you're here!

Gilly - Greeeter
