Welcome to WikiTree, my yDNA at 67 markers matches 3 members of the Munroe/Monroe family of early Virginia mid 1600's onwards. The Hore family plantation was next to Andrew and William Monroe's plantation, in Stafford County, Virginia. We are now trying to find out the connection with these two names in our group.

Thank you for the message!
Be sure and check out the link on How to Use WikiTree in your confirmation comment below. It is a great way to learn about Wiki and getting started.
I noticed you have a GEDCOM, you will find answers and help here: GEDCOM Help
It is strongly recommended by many volunteers here that you get to know Wikitree by adding a number of profiles manually. And many of us equally recommend against gedcom uploads because of the time it takes afterwards to clean up the resulting profiles. What many of us do is focus on our immediate and direct line ancestors first.

Welcome to WikiTree! The email we just sent has helpful links to get you started.
WikiTree is different than other genealogy websites because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we share ancestors and work together as a BIG 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 be given an opportunity to volunteer to help document our collective family history. Use the Tags and comments to tell us about your genealogical interests.
When you volunteer, one of our Greeters will confirm your membership. Then you'll be able to add your family to the tree!
We're really glad you're here!
