My grandfather instilled in me the love for family history. He always said it was important to know where we came from because like the saying, Without the Past, There is No Future.

My family is one of the oldest families on the Gulf Coast. They came in 1699 from Canada with D'Iberville. We have a rich and fantastic heritage here on the Coast. One worth remembering and sharing.

I have dedicated well over 25 years in researching the families of the Coast including, Saucier, Ladner, Morin/Moran, Cuevas, Nicaise/Necaise, Dedeaux, Dubuisson, and many others.

Hi Michelle, I appreciate your checking in. I'm really looking forward to digging deeper on this site but I need to carve out some time for that! I'm sure I'll have some questions for you then. Thanks!

Hi Michelle,

Hi Michelle, thanks for checking. I actually started my family tree in www.myheritage.com. i have since learned about wikitree and want to have a presence there as well. Is there a way to download from MyHeritage to Wiki? Your years of experience in finding history is impressive. I hope to be as successful in my own family facts. Best of days to you, Wanda Mauldin Zuege.

Thank you, Michelle, for your offer of assistance. I am glad to have someone of whom I can ask questions. This is an unfamiliar format, but I like the fact that a source is required in order to add people to the WikiTree. It requires more effort, but is a really good thing. It is interesting, though, that I have seen a couple of instances where the source was bypassed - don't know how that happens. I actually added sources to one of those. Anyway, I will keep you in mind as I continue to learn.

Thanks Michelle for your kind offer of help - I am slowly but surely getting used to the WikiTree format - I intend only to put my direct ancestors on leaving the extended tree on Ancestry. I am finding it a good exercise in making sure I have all the correct source citations! Best regards - Roger

Thanks, Michele. It is a little overwhelming. I have to learn (again) how to download my GEDCOM from Ancestry. Do you have help on that? I ask, because I only want to download the part that is relevant to the Peters, Golden, Venable, and Gorham members in it. I don't want to put other people on the Wiki site. How do I do that, do you know? Thanks, Libby [Peters-9092]

Thank you so much for the email Michelle. I should have gotten back to you sooner, but this has been a busy week. It was very generous of you to reach out to me and I greatly appreciate it. This site is so amazing and a bit overwhelming at the same time. I have things to do and things to read and sometimes I don't know which to do first. It's nice to know I have someone I can reach out to. Gary Essary and Charlotte Shockey have also reached out. It's so appreciated from all of you.
