Hey rhonda! I saw that your a descendant of Elizabeth Anne Morgan - there may be a connection to South Wales through tredeger house, I am based in ireland, I have German connections from bavaria, regensberg, and rhineland, my nanny was an only child her mother died tradgically and her mother's sister was suppose to bring her up, or her nanny, whom was Dutch from utercht, my closest ancestor of the Morgan's was Edward Morgan. Just thought I would sent you a little note, possibly there could - be a connection but not all Morgan's are related, but most English are traced back to a morgan,, nice talking to you xxx dawn

Hi Rhonda, thank you very much for the welcome, and particularly for giving me a direction to start. This is all a little overwhelming at first. I am much more active in my genealogy during the winter months.

Rhonda, thanks for your advice and offer of help.

However, I will first wade through the GEDCOMpare report, and see what I can make out of it - if anything  :-) Again, thanks. Pat

Thanks, Rhonda! I've become fascinated by this and there are clearly some holes in my understanding once things get beyond the 10 generation mark!

As part of an annual check-in of the WikiTree US Presidents Project we are asking members if they are planning to continue their contributions to the project. We are establishing a page where everyone can identify the President or Vice President that they wish to manage. Just respond to this message to let me know 1) Are you planning to continue with the Project and 2) do you have a specific President or Vice President that you are interested in.

Hi Robin. Yes I would like to continue with the US Presidents Project. I don't have as much time as I had since I started back to work full time last fall but am planning to continue contributing. Grant and Cleveland were the two I was working on.
Rhonda,

I just saw this post. My great-grandfather was killed in action during the Korean War. I am thankful for your father's service. I have created a Korean War sticker for him, if you're still interested. I have included the dates of his service in the sticker. I tested it, and it worked for me. Just add the same open bracket to the beginning { and the same closed bracket at the end }, so there are two at the beginning and end. If I paste is correctly, the sticker will appear and you my not be able to see the code. Enjoy!

{Korean War|branch=United States Army|startdate=8 Feb 1951|enddate=17 Feb 1954}

The sticker will look like this, with his name:
Rhonda (Tucker) Zimmerman served in the United States Army in the Korean War
Service started: 8 Feb 1951
Unit(s):
Service ended: 17 Feb 1954
