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.

Thanks for reaching out Carole. I seem to be doing fine and the various WikiTree guides make all the difference. I've only had to merge one record I entered without paying attention. The big thing at the moment is learning to read the abbreviations and handwriting on the 1851 England & Wales census. I'm accessing this through a paid subscription site that provided basic transcriptions, but not so much on the occupation column. I think my farmer relatives are being described as having 55 and 150 acres apiece... I've been reading the 1851 census abbreviation guides and other info I can find online, but finding that basically it comes down to puzzling it out in some cases. So back to the best advice I've been given so far - take your time and learn the ropes!

Thank you for checking in Carole - and for the tip about the links in the email! When I clicked on it in your first message, I got a 'page not found' message which led me to think wiki-tree wasn't being kept up to date! It took me a while to figure out where your comment would appear on the site (on my profile page) - but when I found it and clicked on the link from there, I found the New Member page! So it's a bit of a learning curve but I am very pleased to be a part of such a fabulous project. I had been wondering for a long time how I can save all my family research in a place that will be available for future generations, and I'm sure wiki-tree is the answer! Thank you for your support and guidance!

Thank you for your support Carole. I have limited time for my new family tree Wiki, but at some point I will engage more deeply. I like the concept but I have trees set up in at least 4 other databases. Each has it's quirks. Appreciation your reaching out. I will definitely keep your offer in mind.

OH I have been busy making a copy of what I found on my site first then I did try some thing but it said it may stick forever so I didn't again?....?

Thank you Carole for the greeting. I am new to this whole thing and I am noticing with different sites and sources I'm getting different info on the same person. How do you know which is correct? Also what is the best way to get started accurately without having to keep correcting your information? Thank you for any advice. BTW I had a DNA kit done with MyHeritage and have started the tree there.

Thank you - all fine so far. I had one question which was quickly answered. Most annoying is that I cannot simply upload my complete database (well, yes, I can upload it and I did but I have to add every person to the tree manually).

Hello, Carole

Thank you for your message. I am still finding my way and learning as I go. The How-To info. is helpful and I have printed out some of it. My main reason for joining WikiTree was because I have hit a 'brick wall' with my research into my direct paternal branch of the Burnett's. I am hopeful someone among the other members might have some info. Thanks again for checking, Peggy

Hi Carole. I'm sorry for taking so long to respond. So far, the how-to's have been fairly helpful. That being said, I've been super busy and I haven't had too much time to do much here. If I need help, I'll let you know.
