I have been doing genealogy research for close to 50 years, ever since my grandfather gifted me a box of family materials that his mother had collected. From then on, I was hooked. I've spent many (happy!) vacation days travelling to sites where my ancestors lived, visiting libraries, court houses and cemeteries to gain information.
I'm really enjoying WikiTree and the chance to present family information and share it with other genealogists.
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Ancestry DNA.

PS To find reliable sources for your profiles, go to the Family Tree & Tools tab; select Genealogy Research and scroll down near the bottom of that list and select Research with RootsSearch. There are over 20 websites to access from there.

Since Pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, coordinating with others is essential.
I see you have chosen the same project as I would: US_history. With that I assume you will work on Maryland. Thank you for joining.
If needed here is the Pre-1700 Projects list, located at the top of your page, 4th topic on right, under <Find> and <Projects>.
For questions, just ask on my page.
