Hello Debra,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working with members of the projects which coordinate them is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.

Sources are very important here on Wikitree, especially on Pre-1700 profiles. It is how we show where we got the info and help others find it too. Find out more about sources here and more detailed info here.

Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus. Review the project pages for special guidelines and to learn how to collaborate with the project members.

If you have any questions, click reply below this message and I will get back to you.

Hi Debra,

Welcome to WikiTree! I've just proposed a number of merges for duplicate profiles you created. Many of those were for people who were already on WikiTree. But in at least one case, you yourself created two profiles for the same person. On WikiTree it's extremely important that there is only one profile for each person. Before you create any more profiles, please look around a bit on WikiTree and make sure there isn't already a profile here. If your information has slightly different birth/death dates/locations, please work with the current profile manager to figure out which is correct instead of just creating a whole new profile for the person. In many of these cases you had rejected a merge with the duplicate profile, so it appears that you were aware there was already a profile for the person. Please let me know if you don't understand or if you have any questions. Thanks for your cooperation!

Hi! I wonder if we are related from my mothers side Kangas. 🤔
posted by Mika Lodewijks
Was your mother's last name Perakorpi? You would most likely be related to my wife. Her mother was the son of Victor Maki (originally Meijer, but due to a family feud, Victor changed it to Maki). Victor's wife was Helmi Kangas, daughter of Mattie Oliver Kangas from Lapau, Vassa Lanni, Finland. Matti's father was Heikki Ojutkangas who was married to Kaisa Perakorpi. Most Finlanders came to the US and settled near the mines in eastern Michigan or settled in Minnesota.
