Researching ancestry of Jacob Boozer, who married Christiana Foster on Jan. 7, 1781, at Pennepack Baptist Church in Philadelphia. They were both residents of Bensalem,PA.

You reached out to me a few years ago saying that we are cousins. Wikitree has the full line between us and we are 6th cousins once removed via my paternal line with Thomas Hall , b 1763, the most recent common ancestor. I hope you see that also on wikitree. Cheers, Dick Gates, b1937

Hi Thomas,

We’re on week five and 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.

Feel free to message me if you have questions,

Susie - Wikitree Messenger :-)

Thomas --

You may have been hard at work adding family members and getting connected to those that are already here. You probably have at least a few profiles that you manage now. So, this week we're going to look at how to work with your Watchlist: How to Manage Your Watchlist.

As always, your questions are welcome!

Hi Again!

You have been here for a while now! We hope your profiles are starting to come together and that you've enjoyed getting to know all of 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.

Hi Thomas,

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 us know if you have questions! Just click my name above the comment, then ask in the comment section of my page. We want to help!

Hi! --

You've been here a week now, and we hope you enjoyed your first stop on your guided tour of WikiTree and were able to make good use of the things you learned.

Our next stop will give you some pointers on how to make your profiles stand out: How to Edit a Profile.

As always, your questions are welcome!


Hi –

I'm a member of the Mentor project, and I just wanted to check in and see how things are going. Do you have any questions I can help you with?


Thanks again for your post on Thomas Hall. My home file is in full agreement with your post. We must be cousins because my line goes to Sarah Church Hall, sister of your ancestor, Samuel Scotten Hall. Thomas Hall is my 4th great grandfather on my paternal side.

I hope you will share your line with me at

Thank you for volunteering! I am pleased to confirm your membership to WikiTree.

As we've said, WikiTree is quite different from other genealogy sites. So, we've put together a guided tour to help you learn how to use it. Your first stop is How to Start Climbing Our Tree. Next week, you'll get another message with your next stop on the guided tour.

You can also meet some of us in the G2G forum. Feel free to jump in, introduce yourself, and answer our Question Of The Week: What traditions does your family observe for Father’s Day?

Tomorrow, you'll hear from a Mentor who will check in to see how you're doing and answer any questions you might have.
