Please do not make changes to a WikiTree profile, particularly something as important as linking up parents, without a solid source. This is a violation of the WikiTree Honor Code, which you signed when you joined WikiTree.

I have now twice had to remove unsourced parents you have added to the profile of Edna Towne. I do not want to have to lock this profile due to this continuing issue. If you have a solid source for the parents of Edna Towne, you are more than welcome to add this source to the profile and then add the associated parents. Otherwise you should not be linking them up.

Thanks for that merge request. Done.

I agree that John and Joseph are brothers. And that they came from Stewartstown.

But after that it gets seriously hazy. I think it's pretty clear now that the idea that these McCords were from Skye, etc -- and were part of that big battle in Scotland with a clan chief dying, etc -- is all a bunch of folklore.

Talking with all the DNA experts on McCords .. . and having visited Stewartstown and Scotland personally, I believe this family was from Ayrshire. And the lowlands. And probably moved to Stewartstown as part of the Ulster Plantation.

I've been frustrated with the fact we can't seem to find a Y-DNA tester for our side of the family. We really need one!

Hello Bill,

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.

Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or topic. Read the goals and tasks of the project and join if it is a good fit.

Add the project tag to your Following list to be kept up to date on any activity that occurs for that project.

Can't find what you're looking for? Let me know, and I can make some suggestions! :-)

Hi William,

Welcome! I'm happy to see another Weech. There are 2 Weech descendants that I know of volunteering here at wikitree. Both of us are from the Weech family that lived at The Current Settlement.

FYI: I visit the Beinecke library occasionally to read the Thistltewood-Jamacia diaries, looking for evidence that the three Weech families mentioned therein may be related to the George Weech Savannah. No luck so far….

Welcome to WikiTree! The initial email from us has helpful links that will get you started on WikiTree, which is not like any genealogy site you’ve ever used.

WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all work together as a BIG collaborative team!

What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree? When you confirm your email address, you’ll have an opportunity to volunteer and tell us about your genealogical interests.

Once you volunteer, one of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way!

Welcome to the family! We’re really glad you’re here.
