When I started, I focused on my family only, but hit some brick walls. Now I'm doing an area study for Pennsylvania. I figure that the more profiles that are accurately created and connected, the more chances that I'll break through those walls. Both quantity and quality matter.
Note: if you would like to take over as profile manager for any profiles I manage, just send me a note.
Convert all the historical persons mentioned in these sources to wikitree profiles:
Jordan, John W. Genealogical and Personal History of Western Pennsylvania (Lewis Historical Pub. Co., New York, 1915) UPDATE: COMPLETED!
Cushing, Thomas. History of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania (A. Warner & Co., Chicago, 1889)
