Hi Wendy,

The New Member thing said it had 10 recommendations but I only saw 6 so I have been going along them Where are the other four? So far I think have gotten four major branches of the family linked into the world tree that goes back pre 1500, recommended and approved some merges, Emailing profile mangers with research requests and information challenges. Tring to add at least two new profile entries with citations a day. 382 contribution to date. I have my first Club 100 badge, Pre 1700 cirt , Gedcom Eqip, DNA, Honer Code, Mayflower Project, and Volunteer Badges ... guess I am plugging right along. Now working toward becoming one of those Data Witch Doctor, and getting Pre 1500 cirt. I should start working on one of the Mayflower projects soon, waiting on my Silver Book. Do I have any questions? That is a loaded question ... yea only about a million! But Lucky for you, I am working on them and so far everyone up here on Wikitree and been great with lots of people like you are helping me along. All in all, I would have to say everything is going Great. Thanks for asking, Jeff M

Hi Jeff

As you have been a member of WikiTree for a few weeks now, I thought I would check in to see how you are getting on with the site.

Has the New Member How-To been helpful, or left you with any questions?

I am here to help with any problems or queries you may have. To contact me, be sure to use the "reply" link below this comment so that I will be notified. You can also click my name to send a private message, or post a comment, on my profile page.

Sometimes links don't work in emails.  If that's happened to you, check the public comments on your profile. The links will work from there.

PS Have you noticed that WikiTree adds a link to you and your DNA tests on the profiles of your ancestors and their descendants? It normally takes 24 hours. For more information on DNA, see Getting Started with DNA FAQ.

Hi Jay!

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz.

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working with members of the projects which coordinate them is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.

Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus. Review the project pages for special guidelines and to learn how to collaborate with the project members.

Let me know if you have trouble finding projects which fit your focus. Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.

Robert Ingalls, Born abt 1563, about 15105 of his Descendants


Please see if it includes your Ingalls Ancestry and is correct. It does not include living people.

User must verify all info. Please delete any info that might allow ID Theft before sharing. Thanks to the many who have provided info directly and through Rootsweb, the IGI,,, and many other sources over the years.

We would appreciate any additions or corrections as a gedcom file. There are errors in this data due to software glitches, our errors, and the unintentional errors of many people and many sources.

This data is the result of many thousands of hours of research by my wife and myself and many people. Do add your data to for free so anyone can access it now or hopefully for hundreds of years for free.

Our time for research is about gone. If you contact me I will try to provide sources and notes, pedigree charts, descendant and ancestor pdf file books, etc., for many of the people in this file, as time permits.

Hello Jay,

I do have a Robert A. Ingalls (1568) in my Ancestry Tree My Ancestry tree is Public and feel free to grab whatever information you see that is correct, Unfortunately I think there is a lot that is incorrect. He is 9 or 10 Generations back and I have not had a chance to verify a lot of the information in that line. At least not to Wikitree standards. anyway, I will go through that line and update the hints but I have been rejecting more than I have been accepting.

I went back and had a look at some of my Sources for the Ingalls Line. My primary source is: Genealogy and History of the Ingalls Family in America Living descendants of Edmund Ingalls who settled in Lynn Mass. in 1629 Compiled By Charles Burleigh, MD Malden Mass here is the link

One of our mentors created a tutorial for the GEDCOMpare process that I found very helpful. I hope that you will too.
