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.

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.
My third great grandfather, John Gregory, was charged with murder in Thomas County, Georgia, in 1835. To escape prosecution, he fled the US with his younger brother, Richard, and they settled in the newly formed Republic of Texas.
Maiden name of my maternal grandmother. Her extended family moved from Perry County, Alabama, to Smith County, Texas, in 1879. I'd be interested in a one-name study.
Maiden name of my maternal great-grandmother. Her grandfather, Cyrus Scott Crone, moved from Ohio to Smith County, Texas, in the mid to late 1800s.

Replacing tag I deleted by accident!
My husband's surname. His family came from Broome County, New York. I'd be interested in participating in a one-name study. 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.
May be able to help some people having trouble joining WikiTree.
I'm a co-leader of the Greeter Project.

My surname.
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.
So I can pitch in to help.
Always interesting.

Hi Carol,

I have been overwhelmed with emails from WikiTree offering help since I first signed up. I've been slow on genealogy as I prepare for family events over the holidays. I just created a GEDCOM from my Ancestry tree and uploaded it to WikiTree - awaiting the emailed notice of acceptance. Also added DNA test info and my parents' names to my profile. Like, everyone, I have some Brick Walls in my tree which should be evident by the sudden stop on some of my branches. I'm eager to hear from or about any connections - "surprises" included. Thank you for your offer of help. Phyllis

Thank you for reaching out. Have a lot to learn. Probably picked a bad time to join as I'm in the middle of reorganizing my genealogy so don't have the time to learn wikitree... right now. Still have to add all my husband's side but learned a lesson there, will only do it in small amounts.. thanks again.
