David was born and lived for two years in Colorado, then 8 years in Iowa, before moving to Texas in 1988. David is a common name in my family, shared among many men including my great uncle David Meppen who had a passion for genealogy research.
Among the interesting things I have discovered about my ancestry:
My wife's family has extended roots in Menard County, Texas, population 2,200. The rich history of this area was documented through a large community effort in 1982, resulting in the book "Menard County History -- An Anthology", 1982. I'm transcribing biographies and posting family photographs to Wikitree that were contributed by those families who wished to honor and preserve the heritage of their ancestors, who settled the western frontier.
I'm interested in discussing any genealogy related topics and can be reached by private message or email at: firstname.lastname@example.org

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. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.
Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or special event. Read the goals and tasks of the project and join if it is a good fit.
Let me know if you have trouble finding projects which fit your focus. Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.
