My forefathers were extremely plain people, poor and humble, but I have received one very precious heritage from them. They have never given me a famous name, nor money, nor property, nor lovely heirlooms. I know almost nothing of them beyond my grandparents. Not even my childhood memories are very happy ones. And certainly no one has bequeathed me a handsome face. What, then, is my legacy? Many years before I was born, my ancestors came to America and made their home in this beautiful land. That is my great heritage- just the chance to live here, and to bring up my children here, free men and women, where we still have a chance at life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is my greatest blessing, worth much more than gold or castles, and I am deep- ly grateful to my forefathers.

Hi Thomas I never met a Pickenpaugh/Teter I did not like. I don't now if I ever met one though? Whatcha talking about post yDNA? I started this project over fifty years ago. Am I left behind? My way of communication was to stand on the front porch in West Virginia and hollow to the neighbors to the North or south and send a message by relay for several miles. It did not take very long to get a message across country. Keep up the good fight cuz, Bob

yDNA is the male side of the genetic code.. I had my done several years ago by Family Tree, cost about $99, and found my haplotype was G2a2b2a1, you can see on my Wiki Profile Teters-24. Helps those in the future connect. Just cuz, TomT Have a Happy New Year, if you can.

Hello, Robert,

On behalf of the Military and War Project Leaders, we are doing a six-month check-in with members.

First, we want to thank you for your past participation in the Military and War Project. We appreciate your desire to honor your ancestors for their service to their countries, or even for your service, wherever in the world. We hope that your membership has enhanced your WikiTree experience.

Please let me know, by commenting on my profile or sending a private message, if you are still active in the project, and if so, in which ways you have contributed to the main project or a sub-project within the last two months.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi Bob,

Here is your project. I will link it to the Civil War Project Page.

The way I found it was to go to your watchlist and click space pages. It is there. Others cannot see your watchlist but as a leader, I can. M

Thanks for the New Mexico Project!

Hi Robert,

Can you please take a look at the research notes I left on Peter Reidenbach? He's attached as the son to two profiles you manage. Let me know what you think. Thanks, Cindy

Hi Robert, Thank you for the note!

I proposed a merge of Leonard Author Tiffner (Tiffner-88) and Redd Tiffner (Tiffner-119) your cousin. Since you each manage one of the profiles you and he will need to approve and complete the merge. Click here for Merging Help. The new profile will need to be cleaned up after the merge by removing the second biography and source section.

Wish you a Happy New Year. May 2018 bring you all you need to be happy.

Congratulation for adding your contributions in December. Whatever the quantity of your contributions, they all count. As I always say "Quality is better than quantity" to make a great family tree.

Hi Robert, Thank you for the note and question!

WikiTree does not use your DNA test results only the GEDMacth ID you received when you registered your test.

I see you show to have entered your DNA GEDMatch ID and have added family/ancestors. The short answer is, the DNA information will automatically filter through eight generations of your family in the tree.

As I stated in our previous conversation I have not taken any of the DNA test and suggest if you still have questions on DNA contact one of the DNA mentors after you have read the DNA Help Pages.

DNA Mentors: Veronica Williams or Emma MacBeath
