Good afternoon Jan :-) After watching a recent documentary episode on the Science channel on cable tv called Mysteries of the missing I became curious wondering if I am somehow prehaps a descendant from John White that lived from 1540 to 1593, that is 480 years ago or about 24 generations, yes that is a stretch, lol he apparently was a governor of the u.s. state of Virginia and had to do with the lost colony of Ronoake that basically from what I understand in a way has to do with both u.s. states of Virginia and North Carolina, its very interesting stuff: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_White_(colonist_and_artist) So during my research I came across a Ancestry dna match in which I share dna that has Nora Nevada Wooters that lived from 1906 to 1977 and her spouse was John Herman White that lived from 1912 to 1999. I also share dna with you Jan via Gematch:

One of the main reasons why this so called John White caught my attention from this documentary is because he seems to have a striking resemblance to my deceased Father Patrick Francis Daniel Nolan(https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Nolan-729) that also has blue eyes! :-)

What an interesting comment. In all my research on the Wooters line I've never come across anyone named Nora. All the Wooters I know about are from Delaware and Maryland. And the name White doesn't appear anywhere either. I wonder where the DNA link comes from. My dad was Albert Edmond Wooters, son of Thomas Westley Wooters and Edna Mae Reed. Thomas's parents were Thomas Wooters and Catherine (Caddie) Melissa Litz. I have worked long and hard on both of these two and reached brick walls in both of their lineage. If their names turn up on any of your trees please let me know! Nice hearing from you!

This week we have your last stop on the guided tour. Hopefully, you're feeling like a WikiTree pro! If not, you can always revisit the tour stops via the comment boxes on the right side of your profile.

You've covered a lot of ground the past few weeks. Today, we want to give you just a few more tools that can take you even deeper into the WikiTree forest without getting lost: How to Dig a Little Deeper.

Please do not hesitate to ask questions! If the above link does not work from your email, please go to your profile in the public comments and it will work from there.

Thanks, WikiMesssenger Cindy

Hi Jan

You may have been hard at work getting connected to family members who are already here and adding those who were missing. You probably have at least a few profiles that you manage now.

There's a fast and easy way to access those profiles using the Watchlist. So, this week we're going to look at How to Manage Your Watchlist.

Questions? Just ask me in the comment section of my page. We want to help!

You've been here for several weeks now! We hope your profiles are starting to come together and that you've enjoyed getting to know us a little better.

You're probably getting a good feel for the collaborative nature of WikiTree by now. We know that collaboration isn't always easy. So, we've put together a few pointers that can make working in this type of environment a little easier: How to be a Successful WikiTreer.

Don’t hesitate to ask questions as that is the only way we gain knowledge!

Thanks, WikiMessenger Cindy

PS Good work so far! Have you noticed on your ancestor profiles on the bottom right is "Research" where you can get sources and more information? Give it a try sometime!

Hi Jan,

It's time for your next stop on the guided tour!

This week, we'd like to show you How to Join in the Community. There's no shortage of opportunities to get involved through social media, our forum, and projects.

Be sure to check out the One Name Studies Project to see if anyone has started a project for one of the surnames in your family. Don't see one? Follow the instructions for starting your own!

Please let me know if you have questions. :-)

Next week, you'll get another message with your next stop on the guided tour.

You can also meet some of our members by joining in the fun with our Question of the Week in the G2G forum: Have you proven noble connections from your family lore?

See you in the branches, Cindy
