(I'm putting this here because Ancestry does not make it easy to leave a note for those who view my profile there.)

My areas of interest and research include, but are not limited to, surnames Langdon, Wightman, Smith, Porter, Bradbury, Barbe, Faulk, Davis, Wood, Tinker, Cunningham, Kemp, Bristol, Reuterberg, Wells, Chamberlain, Daley, Hofferbert, Landeen, Stücklin, and Westfall.

My tree is private, but will show up in Ancestry searches, including AncestryDNA. If there's something that interests you, please contact me. I'm happy to share ideas and sources with those who ask. The tree itself is a work in progress. It is as accurate and as well documented as I have been able to make it thus far, but that doesn't make it right. Again, please contact me for sources and draw your own conclusions.

I have sources for just about every person and fact in my tree. My work is done primarily in RootsMagic, which I sync as well as I can with my Ancestry tree. Unfortunately, Ancestry makes a mess of the sources, so I don't upload them, if I can avoid it (I can't always). Ancestry also hides the general notes I have for people in my RootsMagic tree, and that's where I put a lot of information—another reason to contact me about specific people.

Argh. I have seen other people that have a narrative similar to this on their profile, however I have been unable to figure out where you would enter one.

I'll have to see if I can find one of those people and figure it out from there.

Okay, I think I found how people do it. Not sure if there is a character limit.

If you go into your profile and hit the "Edit name and location" button, you will be brought to a screen that allows you to change your name and location and also add information about yourself. This will appear at the very top of your profile page.

Obviously, you could add your areas of interest, but you may want to enter those under the research interests part of your profile. If they limit characters in the "about you" section, you may just want to use this to talk about your tree being private. Hope this helps!

PERFECT. Exactly what I was looking for but couldn't find. Knowing it was there, I finally found the button, and if there's a character limit, I didn't reach it. Thank you.
