Hi Mary,

Thanks for checking up on me. Things are going ok so far, I think. Progress is slow but I don't have a lot of time to devote to it at this stage of my life. I am having fun though, so that's what counts! Your page is amazing! I shall strive to have a profile this detailed someday! I see you have some Scottish lineage? Mine is McCallum. :) Nice to meet you and I know questions will come up sooner or later so nice to know you are here to help.

Hi Mary! So far, WikiTree has been an excellent experience. I really just started clicking links and figuring thins out on my own. The "How-To's" were helpful when I got stuck or couldn't figure something out.

One struggle is the formatting aspect. Not a show stopper, just slows me down for when I want to add content to my page. Nothing that I can't figure out with all the helpful links throughout WikiTree.

Thank you for your message and if I truly get stuck, a question might come your way.

Hello Mary. My experience with Wikitree is going well so far. I am still relatively new to all the electronic media related to genealogy. I did my research over the years since 1980 the old fashion way. When I had the time I spent many hours searching through books and records in the library. I made several trips to regional Federal Archives branches. I made many visits to cemeteries and county courthouses.

I am slowly getting familiar with WIkitree. I do want to give all my sources but I am totally unfamiliar with doing so in the format presented. I do my best until I learn more about how to do it as others are. If you can help with this I will appreciate it. For example how to document a specific page on a census. How do I do it?
