Followed Tags

There is a 1776 project that honors people who were involved in the early history of the United States of America, from the Boston Tea Party through the War for Independence to the ratification of the United States Constitution. You may want to read more about this on the 1776 Project page. It tells you how to add one of the 1776 templates to the profile to indicate if the person was a military veteran or provided other patriotic service.
A sub-project of the History Project.
Angela Catania was my paternal grandmother. She emigrated from Sicily with her widowed father and two sisters.
Connectors work on those unconnected families and profiles and research to source and connect them so we're all one tree, rather than many separate ones. If you like making connections and helping others with their family research, the Connectors project is the place for you.

The Puritan Great Migration project is one of the big projects on Wikitree. Like most projects, there are qualifications for inclusion in the PGM project. A profile qualifies for the PGM project tag/template if the person: was born in England (mostly; we have some from Holland, Ireland and Scotland) emigrated to New England between 1620 and 1640.
My g-great-grandmother was Clara Ream. She was born in Reading, PA in 1850. Her father was Andrew J. Ream, but I cannot connect him to other Reams. Major brick wall.

Hi Lucy,

Just trying to "confirm" I am on this team. Someone replied to my question that I wasn't logged on, registered. I have rec the "Scan-A-Thon" badge and two emails, one stating I would be hearing from a team captain. Can you confirm, please? Thank you, Linda

Thanks for your post on The Medal of Honor space page. This is an on going project for members and when they decide to post their ancestors on this space page is when their name appears. Some members have chosen not to have their ancestor added. We respect the decision of the family in these decisions. As for the comment about Country and flag - this could be changed to reflect the branch of service.. thanks for the suggestion. I'm sorry that you found nothing positive to say about the recognition we tried to provide, but do respect and appreciate your visit to the page.

I haven't made a lot of progress with the Droescher name. I have yet to find where in Germany my branch is from. Hopefully I can figure it out.
