Thanks for the translation help on Antonio Botto! The handwriting also made it difficult to decipher for me. :) These new resources and your help have opened up new paths to find my own Portuguese ancestors! Thanks again!
Thank you Mindy! Things are going great with me. I'm doing research on some of my ancestors right now so I can get the sources to clean up some of the incorrect info I've found on here (or to see if the info I have is incorrect!).
WikiTree is very easy to use and if I don' know something there is always a source to explain it.
Hi Mindy, I'm trying to merge M-41994 to her father M-42110, as the daughter is showing up as "step" to her siblings. But the merge won't work. What am I doing wrong or do I need to correct something? Thanks
I acquired a new computer about five years ago. I had out my family tree on a flash drive and placed it on the new computer. I though it had been deleted. Recently, I began to restore my Family Tree. I had old prints to start.
The computer located most of my old records.
In a few weeks, I think that I will be able to offer the /Family Tree. to Wiki.
My question -How do I this and what kind of forms do I use?
Thank you, Mindy, for reaching out and offering your assistance. I am enjoying WikiTree very much and learning quite a bit, as I go along. I will certainly let you know when I run into something that I might need some help with; but so far, I have been able to muddle my way through my questions.
When I first started with WikiTree, I created a Gedcom; but as I worked through some matches, I quickly realized I did not want to mess with it (or create duplicates) so I ended up not using it. As I have gotten more familiar with WikiTree, I am so thankful I made that decision. Inputting my own profiles and working my way up my tree and connecting to existing profiles has made the process so much easier and more enjoyable.
Hi Mindy!! Thanks for checking in! I really love this community. :-D I don't have any questions at the moment, but I'll be sure to let you know if I do! :-)
Thanks so much, and you have a pretty awesome bio yourself!! I love the way you listed out your brick walls in another page. I might have to think about doing that. I haven't finished entering all my people yet, but I'm taking it slow to find as many sources as I can for each person before entering them on WikiTree.
Thankyou for your offer of help mindy but am just having a wee break because i have found this quite emotional. I expect i will continue in due time as i am finding it all extremely interesting. Thanks again for the offer i will keep it in mind.
