Hi Nancy. Regarding, you could reuse it for another person whose surname is Howland or, since you're the PM, change the surname to that of someone else for whom you wish to create a profile.

Hi Nancy "Congratulations" on receiving the Red "Generous Genealogist" Badge recently. It is great to see others helping with members' brick walls. That would take some collaboration!! Nice job, Way to Go.

On the Eldridge-1340 page, you had this comment about the merge:

Mayflower Families though Five Gen., Volume Two, p. 215. I cannot find a date for the marriage but the births of the children of James and Ruth are listed in Mayflower Births and Deaths, Volume 1 & 2, Chatham MD 17:88. The only children who are mentioned are Zephaniah, Rebecca, Abner and James. The death date and father for James is found in MD 17:89.

You missed that child Ruth Eldredge b. 16 Feb 1737 was also listed.

Nancy, You have obviously accomplished a tremendous amount of work on Kendrick-1110 compared to what I have done on Kendrick-400. It appears we must both be direct descendants of Edward Kendrick. Since Kendrick-400 was the first profile created all other profiles would be merged into it (Kenderick-423, and Kendrick 1110). However, I feel it appropriate to offer you the opportunity to be the Profile Manager of Kenderick-400. Taylor

Nancy, I have adopted so many profiles that are related to mine over the past couple of years. I rec'd an email from another member that basically addressed what you had written on Edward Kendrick's profile for me! Guess it's time to address this mess! Sorry I was in Graduate School and finally finished. Thanks for all your valuable info. Taylor

HI Nancy, when you have time, could you see if there is a source in your records for the parents of Robert Edred/Eldredge? There is a merge pending on him, but the two profiles have differing parents. I don't find anything in the NEHGR or in the Great Migration project on him, at least nothing that provides parents. Thanks! Bobbie

I see that you did some work on pre-1700 profiles recently. That's great!

WikiTree has several projects for pre-1700 profiles. Let me know if you'd like me to help you find the right project and introduce you to the project leaders.

Also, an important aspect of WikiTree is providing sources for information, so don't forget to include your sources when you add a profile or edit an existing profile. For details on how to add, edit and find sources, see Sources and the Sources Style Guide. To get you started, you can also check this collection of sources for some ideas on where to search for information about your ancestors.

Cheers, Liz ~ WikiTree Mentor

Hi ,

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.
