Re: Smith-130395 and Smith-76853 appear to represent the same person because: do you think these are the same man???

I wouldn't have much of a problem with it, until I read the biography...regarding Mary on the first profile listed? What do you think? But with Smiths, who knows. My dad said that at one time everyone was a smith but got sick of it and changed their name. I agreed, isn't Adam Smith just the proof we need? :)

You might want to set your Privacy to Private with Public Family Tree. The WikiTree programming needs to see your Family Tree tab to make DNA and other cousin connections for you. If you want to use the Confirmed with DNA notation, you should use the Public Biography AND Family Tree so that the explanation of your triangulation method is publicly displayed.

Please take a look at my profile where I use Private with Public Biography AND Family Tree to see a list of some of my WikiTree cousin connections and my list of U.S. Presidential cousins.

Welcome to the DNA Project:

Please make sure each bit of DNA test information is added to the actual test participant's profile, not someone else's like your own. To make cousin connections, WikiTree needs to see the FamilyTree tab. Check that your Privacy on your profile is set to "Private with Public Family Tree" as a minimum. (Living minors should have an Unlisted privacy level.)

If you have not already done so, please set your preferences for your Tags Followed to include DNA and other terms of interest to you:

As you add your family lines and connect to the big WikiTree, you may find new cousins. Use the Relationship calculator to see if you are related to me, Cooper-1 with

Welcome! We are glad you are here!  Please let Kitty Smith know if you are interested in joining our DNA Project or our FTDNA Project.

If you have not done so, set your Followed preferences to include DNA.

It's not hard to add DNA test information to profiles on WikiTree, just make sure you add the tests to the actual test participant's profile & set the Privacy to ‘private w/ public biography & family tree’ to show the tester's part of our tree. For help see  How to DNA on WikiTree

We also encourage you to join our Google+ Community for DNA discussions, questions & new information.

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.

Hi Beryl

I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great!

Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors?

You may want to add some tags on your page indicating a family name for one tag and a specific location like England or a state in the United States for another tag and then add other surnames or locations as tags as desired. That way you will be connected to others with the same interest.

Click on to add or remove tags. Be sure to add comments explaining why you're following the tags. Those appear on your profile too.

Dorothy, Volunteer Coordinator
