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.

I shake my head a lot thinking about how bad it must have been for all of them. All you have to do is Google Deerfield Massacre and read about it and suddenly your life is not so bad! LOL Daniel Belding was my 7th? grand and Hester my 6th. Hester went on to marry a Clark then to Wheeler. I think about the pure hell that went on. Elizabeth 7th grand butchered and the children, What the ones left alive had to see and endure marching to Canada in the snow. If you couldn't keep up they just killed you where you stood. And Daniel lost 2 wives the same way in different years. We think we have it bad if the electric goes out in the dead of winter. I don't know but I do thank God for the ones that survived or I would not be her
