We're 12th cousins, but not on the family side that I assumed! haha! My mom's maiden name was Wells, but you and I are actually connected through my dad's side. Maybe as I enter more of my Wells relatives I will find that we are related on two sides. :)

"Mike and Ron are 10th cousins three times removed -- Mike Wells and Ron Campbell (Campbell-25710) are both descendants of Matthew Marvin."
Good catch on the merge for Parkhurst/Whitney. If you're interested in being the profile manager for Whitney-3551, let me know.
THanks for being so fast. :-)
The best place to look for answers about DNA questions is in the G2G forum. There you could create a new post to ask for help. Down at the bottom, add the URL for John's profile and where it says "Surnames and project tags," add the tags add DNA and Mentor so that members who specialize in DNA will be notified.
I'll keep a look out for the question because I'm interested to know what's going on too.
You've been a member of WikiTree for about a week so I am checking in to see how it is going. The New Member How-Tos are for you to work at your own pace. If you had time to look, were they helpful?
I'm here to help with questions about how WikiTree works. Just click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page. I'll get back to you by the end of the day.

PS If you get a "Page Not Found" error when clicking WikiTree email links, you can often find a working version in the public comments on your profile.
PPS Did you discover that the tags on your profile are clickable links? Each takes you to a page of other people who have that tag and WikiTree links which might be helpful.
You are putting your new pre-1700 badge to use a adding new pre-1700 profiles. This is great! But please do not forget to come back to the earlier profiles you created to add sources. When you added new profiles a few days ago, you pledged to add sources by the next day. It is time to come back to these and add sources. Thank you ! Isabelle
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.

Would you please check to see if the Ancestry links you have as sources on the profiles you're creating actually link to a source on Ancestry. The ones I've checked haven't worked. If they don't link to a source, please add your sources manually. Thanks!
I am pleased to confirm you as a full member. Now you can start adding your family members.
WikiTree is quite different from other genealogy sites. So, we've put together a guided tour to help you learn how to make your way around more easily.
New Member Pages
Next week you'll hear from a Member who will check in to see how you're doing and answer any questions you might have.
Thank you for entering your DNA information. This can take 24 hours for it to fully show on your profile. Happy searching!
