A work in progress although Jim is likely into his last chapter, and if not the last certainly the penultimate chapter.
The information above is based 100% on the memory of Jim who spends much of his time walking about trying to recall why he is walking about.

Here are the two free space profiles you created for Pickering Genealogy;
Here is the page to use to merge the two free space profiles you created for Pickering Genealogy. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:MergeSpace
Option 2. Send a message to info@wikitree explaining what happened and ask them to merge the two profiles into one for Pickering Genealogy. Be sure to include the two links to both profiles in your message. Free space profiles do not have an option at the bottom for merging like a personal profile does.

You may have been hard at work getting connected to family members who are already here and adding those who were missing. You probably have at least a few profiles that you manage now.
There's a fast and easy way to access those profiles using the Watchlist. So, this week we're going to look at How to Manage Your Watchlist.
Please let one of us know if you have questions! Just click my name above the comment, then ask in the comment section of my page. We want to help!
Thanks, WikiMessenger Cindy
PS Good work so far! Have you noticed on your ancestor profiles on the bottom right is "Research" where you can get sources and more information? Give it a try sometime!

If you have not done so, set your Followed preferences to include DNA.
It's not hard to add DNA test information to profiles on WikiTree, just make sure you add the tests to the actual test participant's profile & set the Privacy to ‘private w/ public biography & family tree’ to show the tester's part of our tree. For help see How to DNA on WikiTree
We also encourage you to join our Google+ Community for DNA discussions, questions & new information.
