  • First-hand information. Entered by David Mitchell at registration.

My name is David Henry Mitchell b 15 Nov 1938 Los Angeles Los Angeles Co CA USA. My father and mother were born in TN USA. My grandparents' birth surnames were Mitchell, Chadbourne, Massingale and Nicholson. So far, the best information I have found traces my Mitchell line to Robert Mitchell b c1721 PA USA, my Chadbourne line to Robert Chadbourne b c1530 England, my Massingale line to Daniel Marsingell c1623 England and my Nicholson line to Isaac Nicholson b 1757 SC USA. I want to prove or disprove the family information I have, and I want to find additional family information.

Beyond the Basics of WikiTree is a guide on some of our more advanced features such as Projects, Categories, Merging, Templates and Volunteer Opportunities!

We're very active on our social sites and we have an excellent blog where you'll find our monthly newsletter as well as tips, interviews with our members and guest posts from others in the genealogy community.

Try our Relationship Finder! It searches 20 generations. If you find a duplicate profile, the other managers are probably related. You can use this to find out how!

Just checking in with a few quick tips:

Free Space pages are wiki pages for supplementing your family history. They can be used to profile anything of significance such as a special pet, a meaningful event, a school you attended, a family heirloom .... They're "anything pages".

Not sure what to include in a profile? Check out our Biography Ideas and Styles and Standards help pages.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

Do you have any questions I can help with?

Hi again David!

I’m glad you found us. I just confirmed you as a member (once you sign the Honor Code, you’ll be a full member – aka a Wiki Genealogist). I've found the best way to research my family in WikiTree is to post what I know and connect to existing profiles when I find them.

An important aspect of WikiTree is providing sources for information (even if it’s just “Aunt Louisa told me in 1984...”) – my profile page has a link to Sources Resources, where I’ve tried to provide an overview of source information.

Give G2G or me a holler if you get stuck on anything, and thank you for joining our collaborative tree. Remember that our mission is to build a global tree with just one profile per person, so please look for duplicates before adding a profile.
