Please accept my apology in advance. Currently it may take me awhile to respond to private messages or merge requests. While I love history, I also love the present. I try to respond to everyone though.
Many genealogies posted online and in books are unsourced and may be incorrect. These are my attempts at finding sources. While DNA testing can be useful, connections are usually based on paper trail family trees. If everyone has the same unsourced family tree, the common shared ancestors may be incorrect.
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Ancestry DNA.

Thank you for joining WikiTree. As a WikiTree Mentor I am available to answer any questions or help solve any issues you may be having.
I hope you're enjoying our site. Our primary vision is to build a collaborative tree with just one profile per person, so please make sure to look for duplicates on WikiTree before adding a profile. Having dates and locations attached to every person assists in our mission as well!
Feel free to check out How To Use WikiTree. It's a great step-by-step guide to get you started.
And of course I'm here to help, just ask!

You are now a member of the WikiTree Community. Please note we are trying to build one Collaborative Tree which means one profile per person. It is important to ensure no duplicates are entered as you add any Profiles to WikiTree.
Everything on WikiTree is a collaborative work in progress so don’t forget to read and sign our Honor Code. This is what keeps WikiTree a friendly and helpful community. Please feel free to ask if you have any questions.

We're growing a FREE worldwide family tree, striving for ONE collaborative profile for every person.
A couple suggestions to get you started:
Our Honor Code is a very important part of why our community is such a friendly place to grow your family tree so please take some time to read it.
Feel free to ask a question at our G2G forum, found in the upper right of the screen, under the My WikiTree tab.
Our help pages, also top right, have all sorts of useful information.
If you would like to contribute by adding information, click the volunteer button and leave a comment here on your profile to let our greeters know.
You should include a little bit about how you plan to contribute to the tree.
