I have been interested in genealogy since childhood because my grandparents, great-aunts and great-uncles were wonderful family storytellers. The problem was that I didn't know which stories were true, and which were either family legends or bedtime stories never intended to be taken as actual family history.

I became more serious about genealogy from 2006 to 2007, but gave it up after coming across so many wacky online family trees. In 2013, my brother asked a question about Henry Frank Smith, our great-great-grandfather. A quick Google search showed that there were now multitudes of free internet resources, including newspaper images, cemetery records, passenger lists, and some vital records going back to the 1600s. I caught the genealogy bug again.

I discovered WikiTree in September 2013, and have been using it extensively. I'm volunteering as a Greeter/Mentor, and an Arborist, focusing on merging and cleaning up Puritan Great Migration profiles.

Relatives (I know of) who are active on WikiTree

... which brings me to this.

Following this tag may decrease how often I embarrass myself.
I want to chime in with congratulations whenever a member of the Greeters Project gets a thank you.
Arborists propose merges and clean up messy profiles. If you're patient and detail-oriented, this job's for you!
I'm trying to distinguish between 2 or 3 Daniel Bedells to identify my third great-grandfather. He was born about 1800 in Dutchess County, New York, and moved to Rensselaer County as a child or young adult.
I'm hoping to learn something about my 4th ggm, Jane Boyer of St. George's, Bermuda. She was born in 1782, and married Henshall Stubbs on Grand Turk Island in 1803.
My maternal grandmother was Nora Gertrude Crews. Her extended family moved from Perry County, Alabama, to Smith County, Texas, in 1879.
My maternal great-grandmother was Laura Jane Crone. Her grandfather, Cyrus Scott Crone, moved from Ohio to Smith County, Texas, in the mid to late 1800s.
Cynthia Frisbie was my 3rd ggm. She was born about 1818 in Mississippi and came to Texas. She married William Sturrock of Angus, Scotland.
I'm a Co-Leader of the Greeters Project... Hi!
My husband's surname. His family came from Broome County, New York. Although the word hake can refer to a kind of fish, the surname Hakes probably refers to a bill hook (or "bill"), a nasty weapon used in medieval warfare.
Co-Leader of the Greeters Project.
Following this tag because I'm part of the Mentors Project.
I'm a descendent of John Partridge of Medfield, Massachusetts.
Puritan Great Migration - many of my ancestors and those of my husband were part of the wave of people, Puritan and otherwise, who came to America between 1621 and 1640.
Nancy Pumphrey was my 3rd ggm. She was born in 1810 in Pitt County, North Carolina. She married John Gregory in Georgia about 1830. They moved to the Republic of Texas after he was charged with murder in the US.
Serena Savell was my 3rd ggm. She was born about 1820 in Mississippi, and married Stephen Allen. She died in 1879 in Rusk County, Texas.
Mary Sider, sister of Joseph, was my 3rd ggm. She was born 1825 in Pennsylvania. She married Cyrus Scott Crone in Champaign County, Ohio in 1850. They settled in Smith County in East Texas, where Cyrus worked as a cabinet maker. Mary died in Texas in 1916.
Following this tag as part of Arborist and Mentor roles.
I think that Anstress Wainright was my husband's 2nd ggm. She was born about 1824 in New York, and married Reuben Sanders. They lived near Binghamton, Broome, New York.

Hi Carole, Thanks for the message. I'm actually doing pretty well (I think) at the moment, but I have found a profile already on the system that has a mistake with the last name at birth. It should be Wilmans (with an 'i', not a 'e'). Is there anyway to change this, or should I create a new profile for this user with the correct information? The user in question is Welmans-2

Yes, thank you for the email. I totally failed at putting in the sources for my family tree entries. I understand completely the need for sources, but I don't think I did it correctly on the one I attempted. Thanks, Becky

Hi Carole, I have a question regarding a profile without a manager. I have information on the subject person and am willing to become the profile manager. Could you look at the subject person - Meriwether-140 and let me know if I need to keep all the information under the Sources, Footnotes and Acknowledgments? It appears that the original profile manager has closed their account. I'm not sure as to the protocol of how to handle the non-information information (haha!) that is written there. I have actual sources etc. Thanks for your guidance.

Hi Carole, Thank you for your message. I am doing family research and most of the births were in England. I found some information on WikiTree and I am really hoping the information is correct? I am struggling with Ancestry and People Search.

Thank You, Joannie Fierro

Hi Carole! Thank you for your message and offer of help. I'm just getting started on this site, so I'm trying to learn the rules before I do much. I'm interested in being more involved as a genealogist and indexer, so I don't want to mess anything up. LOL

Carole, Hi, a quick question. I have a suggestion on one of the profiles I manage. It says the first name is wrong. I have the first name as Baby as that is what was written on the child's death certificate (stillborn). Should I still change this to unknown even though the record states something different?
