HI David, thanks for checking in with me. I've found the site works like other Wikis, Twikis, and Swikis, so I'm in familiar territory. Thanks for checking up on me.

Thanks for your comment David. I have had a look at the England project and I might also join one or two others later. I have been doing genealogy for several years on Ancestry but have only just found Wikitree. At the moment I am busy uploading my tree (about 1/8th done after 6 weeks) once I have finished that and tidied up then I'll look around for some projects to grow things further.

Cousin David,

Just wanted so share a fascinating hidden feather on WikiTree. You can get a report for all yourknown ancestors within 2,000 years by typing this in your URL: http://wikitree.sdms.si/function/WTWebAncestors/errors.htm?WikiTreeID=Cruz-788 (Just replace Cruz-788 with your WIkiTree ID)

I found a 69th generation ancestor. He is listed as King Prasutagus of the Iceni, born 0010 in Icenia, Britannia. (WikiId: Iceni-3).

Iceni were a British Celtic tribe of eastern Britian during the Iron Age and early Roman Era. His history offers a fascinating story about how his wife, Boudici, after her husbands death about 50 A.D., led an uprising against the occupying Roman Empire, and gave the Roman's such hell that she later became a British folk hero.

There are many others to explore too!

Dear David

The first time I worked on my GEDcompare, I did not manage to compare all the suggested matches, and since then I did not find a way to get once again into my 1300 peon GEDcompoare report. DEGcompare does not appear in the list of what I can do. Nearly all of my date on dates, which I transfered through GEDcom upload do not appear in the GEDcompare report. Thanks for any help Abraham

Hi there! Thanks for showing me the example of what constitutes 'source'. I have originals and certified copies for the main thrust. It's become a thrill to find the records ... On the hunt! And yes I will now make sure that I note the source and update where I can
