You posted a couple of comments on Welles-29. If you could cite your sources for the information, we could add that info to the profile narrative. Thanks!

Hi Christine,

No I don't believe we are related at-least closely, I stumbled upon a few of the Zackry profiles while sourcing profiles for the source-a-thon

Have a great day

Hi! I just saw your comment on Kemp-215 - asking if he qualified for Great Migration notation. I'm not a member of that project, so I'm not for sure, but since he immigrated to Virginia, I don't think so.

You might want to post the question to G2G from his profile page. Tag it pgm & Kempe at least.

Cheers, Liz

Your exactly like me on here. But they wont prove a line. Unless it disputes one that is excepted. We have the line, but now the work starts. Because the lines must be proved now. Most line's beyond 4 generations are really looking to source the line to the first sourced Baron. Some lines my have been sourced sooner. They are all supposed to be sourced when added. I can source anything I add.

I find mine comes from 1607 on. And all linked in here as magna carta immigrants. All cousins from the wars of the roses days. Its what I find?

All related to key people's like Beauchamp. Beaufort, Beaumont . Because these familys married everyone in what we call the peerage.. For politcal reasons or whatever. Added: ps Even being unproved I know we are related. I am in the Beauchamp circle. You should run my gedmatch number's. The numbers in my profile. I think your a key.

I cant access that account. I switched emails. And havent fixed it.

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
1776 Liberty Bell
Event years 1773-1789.
Join: 1776 Project
Discuss: 1776
for those who bore arms in the Revolution. Thank you.

Re: Unknown-336709 (or any other profile): please use great caution when using Findagrave or any other user-contributed site. They can offer clues, but should rarely if ever be relied upon as a sole source for vital stats (including maiden names) for a profile. It's okay to note the information in the profile's narrative, but I would never change a maiden name based on a claim made on a FAG profile alone. Happy to discuss further.
