Welcome to the Runion Name Study which is a part of the One Name Study Project. Congratulations on your Y-DNA results linking you to Benjamin Runyon. I am eager to hear more of what you discover! Let me know if you need any help.

A Y DNA test came through this morning from a 6xg grandson of Benjamin Runions. The Y DNA test verifies our line does descend from Vincent Rongnion and therefore we are related to all of the Runyan/Runyon's of New Jersey and those that migrated south.

Hello, Dee,

Thank you so much for responding to our check-in for the Miltary and War Project.

Welcome to the 1776 project.

I have also awarded you the Military and War project badge as it is the umbrella project for all the wars.

Hi, just a few things to pass along about categories....

When you name an AncestryDNA circle category, please add a space after the comma. I have renamed two of the categories already. See the red ones on this page? Also, after naming these categories, they are "red" because they are not categories yet. They need a parent category. Please add Category:AncestryDNA Circles as the parent category to your AncestryDNA circle categories.

Just one more thing: the category AncestryDNA circles is a top level category and should be removed from this profile.

Thank you for all you do at WikiTree. Natalie, Categorization

Hello Dee,

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! :-)

Hi Dee

Great start, were the Member How-Tos pages helpful or did they leave you with questions?

Clicking your green tags shows members who follow that tag. Add tags other family surnames, for locations - US_HISTORY for all states and Interests. The more tags you add the more links to community & research options Information on tags is on page one of the How To pages.

We want to help you learn about the site and the community, hopefully you found the pages and links useful. I have page one bookmarked for reference page

Questions click my name and ask in the comment box on my page

Janet ~ Wikitree Messenger - Happy New Year

P.S. If links do not work in an email from WikiTree try from the comment section of your profile

Hi Dee

Thank you for volunteering, we are glad that you joined us. You are now a full member of the WikiTree community, and can now start adding your family.

For helpful tips to get you on your way, please start with our New Member How-To pages.

I first started out as a rookie, just working on my immediate family members. But as I found more connections I got better at working on my tree. I think you will enjoy the experience once you get comfortable being here. I know I have!

Dorothy, WikiTree Greeter

Note: If the link doesn't work in your email, you can find them in the public comments on your profile page. Feel free to work through the How-Tos at your own pace.
