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 20 years in researching the families of the Coast including, Saucier, Ladner, Morin/Moran, Cuevas, Nicaise/Necaise, Dedeaux, Dubuisson, and many others.

HI Michelle, thanks for your welcome note. I do have a few questions before I can start my profile. I was adopted and I have done my Ancestry DNA test. I do know my birth name and my birth mother's name. I am not really sure if I should be using my birth name, my adopted name? I read the section on adoption here and I see I should be using my biological family tree and should only make one profile. Any other advice? I don't have my birth father's name but have all my non-identifying information. Thanks for your help!

Hi Michelle, Thanks for the warm welcome and offer to help. I do have a question regarding my GEDCOM and DNA. I attached both to my profile on Thursday, but neither have made any changes whatsoever (that I can tell). I know that the DNA is updated daily, but I have trouble believing that I have no matches to anyone on Wikitree.

How long will it be until the GEDCOM data will be available to me here? Have I done anything wrong? Thanks in advance!

Hi Michelle, many thanks for asking how I'm doing. I'm adding profiles of family members at the moment and paying attention to sources to confirm the facts. Enjoying learning my way round the site and going through the help pages, doing OK so far.

So far I have simply added people profiles. I cite my self recollection for much of the data. Should I be using public record sources instead?

Hi Michelle,

Thanks for checking in on how I'm doing. I'm doing OK, I think! There's lots to take in and sort through. It seems like I can get going down lots of different " rabbit trails". But it is very interesting! Thanks!

Thanks Michelle. I'm a bit worried about how I'm going to enter all my family data with the preferred format for source citations. I have always added my sources at the end of each event rather than having pages of endnotes. I have a lot of collateral family research to help me find connections and I can't imagine reentering all of it. I would love any advice.

Thanks Michelle. At least I see from the posts that I am on the same track as others suggested so it isn't incompetence that is keeping me from moving forward:-) I will just keep looking. I really think we go to the Yorkshire area before London but we will see. I know this because I found a 4 step separated person in Yorkshire with a tree to another Place surname fellow in California who matches me 110/111. Can't get much closer.

Thank you for asking. I was wondering if there is an easy way to go from myself to where I add a family member. Right now I use the lick that I received in an email.
