My Mitchell family came to Texas in 1850 from Alabama through Arkansas and settled in Limestone and Coryell counties but later moved to the Bayside/Aransas pass area. My maternal Newman side were part of Austin's 300 and original settlers in Texas. I myself grew up in the Houston and surrounding areas but have now lived in many states and would love to see where my family fits into the world tree of the past and find current family I know nothing about.

I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Also noticed you made 774 contributions to Wikitree, thank you! Here at WikiTree we like to have our members involved with others; collaboration is key!
Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Here is a list of our WikiTree projects you might like to check out: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Projects
Why don't you also stop by the One Name Studies project, to see if there's already a name study for (surname) going on? The current leaders for that are Doug Lockwood and Alison Andrus. They would be happy to get you started.
Dorothy, Volunteer Coordinator.

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.

Welcome to WikiTree! The initial email from us has helpful links that will get you started on WikiTree.
WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all work together as a BIG collaborative team!
Are you, like myself, interested in how your family fits into the big tree? Do you have research you’d like to share? When you confirm your email address, you’ll have an opportunity to volunteer (To add your OWN family information), then one of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way!
When site is busy please be patient waiting for Greeter
NOTE- adding Info is limited until you Volunteer and become a FULL member.
Welcome to the family! Glad you joined.
