Grandparents names - Smith, William; O'Brien, Flavia. Ruano, Manuel; Peck, Cleo My father's family was broken up after Flavia's death. I have only met my father's siblings. Recently, I located Flavia's gravesite and found Minnie and Walter O'Brien. This was all I needed after 20 years of questioning where my family came from... and just how Irish am I? LOL... I was lucky to have 4 years with my grandfather, Manuel, before he passed in 1982. My grandmother, Cleo, passed before I was born, I believe around 1972. I super excited to see what new information I can find : ) The name Smith had made finding clues in the past a little difficult, but any bit I can learn about my ancestors and family is truly exciting.

P.S. Consider editing your tags so they can be more useful to you. For example, try replacing PECK_RUANO with two separate tags, PECK and RUANO. Good luck!

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!
Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.
Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or special event. Read the goals and tasks of the project and join if it is a good fit.
Let me know if you have trouble finding projects which fit your focus. Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.

Let me know if you require assistance. I am happy to help. After adding my own family and ancestors I have found many cousins and distant ancestors here on WikiTree.
