hi Sue,

Saw you have one of my Liard family marrying among yours, you're the first one in WikiTree that actually has made such a connection.  :-D Corrected his given name at birth and put the source on his profile. Also added him to my name study. Another variation, lol, it gets mangled even in French.

Dear Cousin Sue,

Thank you for the "work as a blacksmith sticker". I did not know it exists (I do now). I have been fascinate by the number of blacksmiths in my background. My interest in Mr Booth is that I believe that my great-grandfather Cicero Ledbetter (who has just acquired his own "I was a blacksmith" sticker) was an apprentice with Mr Booth and eventually bought Mr Booth out when he retired. Do you know if records of who was apprenticed to who exist? Charlie Jaffe

Welcome to the 1776 Project (, a subproject of the Military and War Project:

There are category links to add to your ancestor's profiles and research links to learn more about your family. The Project is a good way to consolidate the WikiTree ancestors with historic connections to the years of 1773 (Boston Tea Party) to 1789 (ratification of the U.S. Constitution.) All patriot, loyalist, Hessians, French, Native Americans or any other profiles with a connection to these years should be linked to an appropriate category in the Project.

If you haven’t already, please set your preferences for your Tags Followed to include 1776 Project and any other tag terms that you wish to follow:

Some categories have a template (SAR) to add at the top of a biography. If not, add a category link by putting the category name such as
Sue Pombrio participated in the American Revolution

for those who bore arms in the Revolution. Thank you.
