Thanks for the welcome message and offer of assistance, David. It's not been fun for me learning WikiTree's arcane UI and work flow - tedious and time-consuming. I can see that one must dedicate oneself to it.

I doubt I'll stay with WikiTree much longer - its clunky UI and impossible work flow are killing me - yet I love the wiki collaboration concept. WikiTree might consider tinyMCE wysiwyg on text area entries and (re)offer a useful gedcom upload/download + matching facility. BTW, text is impossible to read on my 11" Chromebook. - Greg

Hello David,

Thanks for the warm welcome. At this point i am focussing on getting my 600+ ancestors into WikiTree. After that i will surely enroll in a project!

I have some ancestors moving to the U.S. and also to Australia. Further more some strains originate in the Duchy of Oldenburg in germany and came to te peat colonies in Groningen and Dranthe. I would love to learn more about those migrations, since i am stuck in the 1700s. Brick Wall so to say.

But as said: first give my ancestors that I allreeady identified the attention they deserve. Greetings Sanne

Thank you I am new and am a little lost searching for the father of someone born in India I would say he was in the English army there prior to 1855 when his son was born. Not sure where to start.

Thank you for enquiring David. Yes, fun as well as a little frustration as I tackle an unfamiliar system, but I enjoy the challenges it throws up and it's great to know that help is so readily available. Haven't been completely stuck yet but I know you're there if I need it.
