Hello J,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential.

Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or topic. Read the goals and tasks of the project and join if it is a good fit.

Add the project tag to your Following list to be kept up to date on any activity that occurs for that project.

Can't find what you're looking for? Let me know, and I can make some suggestions! :-)

Yes! I knew Helmut would be a good person to ask about the Kurrentschrift and I see you're getting multiple responses. Hooray!

J, I am speaking on Sunday morning about Elizabeth Neumann's journal. It's just about three paragraphs in handwritten Hungarian. Do you have time to take a look?

Okay, J. It's all yours now to work on. The WikiTree staff is changing all "Glossary" pages to Free Spaces so people can work on them (-:

I know that it looks like there are TWO Hungary Glossaries but the old category one will dissapear soon.

Hello Again,

You've been a member of WikiTree for about a week now so I thought I would check in to see how it's going. Have the How-Tos been helpful or left you with questions?

I want to help! Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page or send me a private message. Sometimes links don't work in emails. If that's happened to you, check the public comments on your profile. The links will work from there.

Okay J, I will find out why from the Technical team. I will probably get back to you next week on this but I am guessing that it's page only leaders can amend.
