I just found a connection to the Elliott family's tragic shipwreck in the Faithful Steward and am eager to add a few generations to that family's tree!

Family tradition says that my mother's surname, Osborne, had been changed in the past from Asboe but I have found evidence that Peter J Osborne (who emigrated from Denmark to the United States) had married Anna Asboe. The similarities of the names, and misunderstanding the genealogical notation of a woman's maiden name likely gave rise to the family story. I would love to collaborate with others connected to this family.
My maiden name is Shane and I am stuck on my 5X Great Grandfather James Shane (1745-1804) and am not sure if it's possible to get further back than him because it seems that his father was pressed into service aboard a British Man of War in New York and he was never heard from again. In all of the family histories that I have found, no one even knows James's parents' names. I would love to collaborate with anyone else connected to this family.

Hi Susan. Thank you for your note. If our Crawfords are related, I'm not certain of the connection as I've only been able to go back to William Wyld Crawford b. 8.July.1827 in Scotland. His last known address in Scotland was somewhere in Glasgow. His father, John Crawford, a fish monger, had passed away by the time William entered his apprenticeship at the age of 16. The indenture was fulfilled by 1848 and William Wyld clame to America shortly thereafter.

We've made a change in how the tutorials are sent to new members. Instead of weekly messages you can now work at your own pace.

How is it going so far? Have the How-Tos been helpful or left you with questions?

We want to help! Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.

Hi Susan,

You have been here for a while now! We hope your profiles are starting to come together and that you've enjoyed getting to know all of us a little better.

You're probably getting a good feel for the collaborative nature of WikiTree by now. We know that collaboration isn't always easy. So, we've put together a few pointers that can make working in this type of environment a little easier: How to be a Successful WikiTreer.

It's time for your next stop on the guided tour! This week, we'd like to show you How to Join in the Community. There's no shortage of opportunities to get involved through social media, our forum, and projects.

Be sure to check out the One Name Studies Project to see if anyone has started a project for one of the surnames in your family. Don't see one? Follow the instructions for starting your own!

Hi. My mother was an Elliott who's line goes back to the Faithful Steward shipwreck. If you do DNA testing, you can be confirmed as related. I have DNA tested 2 of my Elliott first cousins and am waiting the results through Family Tree DNA. I will post them on here. Welcome!

You are now a confirmed member, and you can get started adding your family members. As we've said, WikiTree is quite different from other genealogy sites. So, we've put together a guided tour to help you learn how to use it. Your first stop is How to Start Climbing Our Tree.

Tomorrow, you'll hear from a Mentor who will check in to see how you're doing and answer any questions you might have.

Next week, you'll get another message with your next stop on the guided tour.

You can also meet some of our members by joining in the fun with our Question of the Week in the G2G forum: Are you related to a Magna Carta Surety Baron?
