Biography

I am singer, writer, guitarist and storyteller from northern Virginia's Blue Ridge. Have a listen or read my blog - some of which relates to my AnceStories - at http://andrewmcknight.net

We use Ancestry.com and Family Tree Maker. My parents have taken the Ancestry DNA test, and Dad the y-67 at FTDNA. Descendant of McKnights, Robinsons and Millikens of Ulster and Ayrshire, and Warners, Culvers and several other colonial families (mostly of CT, and some MA). Maternal side is Bagleys and Bakers from New Brunswick, Canada (some Loyalists, some UK immigrants), and Irish - Ryans (Co. Carlow), Murrays & Hennesseys (Co. Cork). I've researched my Civil War ancestors at the National Archives, and have done a fair amount of webinars and other intensive study of Irish genealogy, DNA analysis and other really useful tools for teasing our family's story's out of the mist of history.

If we share a family DNA match, please get in touch - I'd love to know more and share what I know!

Congratulations!

This week we have your last stop on the guided tour. Hopefully, you're feeling like a WikiTree pro! If not, you can always revisit the tour stops via the comment boxes on the right side of your profile.

You've covered a lot of ground the past few weeks. Today, we want to give you just a few more tools that can take you even deeper into the WikiTree forest without getting lost: How to Dig a Little Deeper.

Please do not hesitate to ask questions! If the above link does not work from your email, please go to your profile in the public comments and it will work from there.

Thanks, WikiMesssenger Cindy

Hi there!

You may have been hard at work getting connected to family members who are already here and adding those who were missing. You probably have at least a few profiles that you manage now. There's a fast and easy way to access those profiles using the Watchlist. So, this week we're going to look at How to Manage Your Watchlist. Please let one of us know if you have questions! Just click my name above the comment, then ask in the comment section of my page. We want to help!

Andrew --

You've been here for several weeks now! We hope your profiles are starting to come together and that you've enjoyed getting to know all of us a little better.

You're probably getting a good feel for the collaborative nature of WikiTree by now. We know that collaboration isn't always easy. So, we've put together a few pointers that can make working in this type of environment a little easier: How to be a Successful WikiTreer.

As always, your questions are welcome!

Hi Andrew

Welcome to WikiTree

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. There's no shortage 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!

Look at the list of active projects to see if one fits your interests or research needs.

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

Andrew,

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: Do you have any inventors in your family tree?

Welcome!

Andrew, the best way to make DNA connections on WikiTree is to upload your DNA information at gedmatch, then enter your kit number here for others to compare with. If you need more information about gedmatch, please let me know.

Andrew,

Welcome to WikiTree! The initial email from us has helpful links that will get you started on WikiTree, which is unlike any genealogy site you’ve ever used.

WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, so we all work together as one 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 have an opportunity to tell us about your genealogical interests as you join.

Once you volunteer to help build our global tree, our greeters will confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way!

Welcome to the family! We’re really glad you’re here.
