Hey, everybody,

I'm honored to be the new host of the forum. Genealogy is one of the reasons I got interested in the Civil War, and all the helpful folks on this forum have helped me immensely with my own family research.

I'm looking forward to reading everyone's questions and findings. I'm also hoping to start some more discussion-based threads about our Civil War ancestors on the forum.

Please let me know if there are any regular features you'd like to see or if you have any other suggestions for the forum.

Respectfully, Your Most Obedient Servant, :smile:

Nice to have you Zella. Thanks for taking this on.

Maybe we could start some threads on various "how to" things that seem to come up a lot. Then those could maybe be pegged to show up at the top. Folks could add techniques they've used to solve various mysteries or just to do relatively simple things like getting things from the Archives. That way, when the newby signs on to ask "how can I determine ..." there'd be some ready resources. Just a thought.

Your even more obedient and humble servant,

John

Oh that's a wonderful idea, John! Thank you!

Welcome aboard as a HOST @Zella

I am so pleased that you are doing this! And @John Winn 's suggestions are excellent. You know you can always call on me to help - although usually, I am asking others for help. :giggle: Anyway, there are a bunch of really great people on the Forum who are always willing to help with ancestry questions so you should have plenty of resources to call upon.

You are going to be amazing in this role!
Cheers
Laura

Well, since we're piling on the praise for our new host, @Zella, I might as well put in my two cents. @Zella is going to be an awesome host!!! I'm looking forward to getting some tips from this forum as I seriously ponder beginning some ancestry research. @John Winn, I haven't forgotten your kind offer to talk with me about this. I'm just dragging my feet getting started. :smile:
