Thanks for acknowledging me as a member of the Broadwell Name Study. I hope it will help both of us as well as the tree at large. I have been on WikiTree longer than you, but that doesn't mean I know much. There is so much to learn that I only count myself a little better than a complete newby! I will send you my email by private message...

Wish you a Happy New Year. May 2018 bring you all you need to be happy.
Congratulation for adding your contributions in December. Whatever the quantity of your contributions, they all count. As I always say "Quality is better than quantity" to make a great family tree.
Thank you for being a Wikitreer,

Thank you for self-certifying for the Pre-1700 badge! Participation in a project is strongly encouraged for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles.
It looks like German Roots Project would be a good fit with the tag you entered. Adding the tag German_Roots will help you get updates about activity for that project.
Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Do you have some historically-significant ancestors? Look at the list of active projects to see if one fits your needs.
Do you have any questions? Let me know. I'm happy to help! :-)

I am descended from the Broadwell, married into the Lindsley family. If you are, as well, we must be cousins :) Welcome to WikiTree!

A warm welcome to WikiTree. You are now a full member and can add your family to the big tree!
Click here to start with our New Member How-To pages. They will save you time, energy and frustration as you add your family profiles.
Hope you enjoy WikiTree as much as I have. You never know when you will find a lost family member or ancestor. Or maybe find a hidden family secret about an ancestor. Genealogy to me is like being a detective looking for clues into the past.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I'm always happy to help!
