What is it, Who we are, and Why we do it
The WILDER Research Group is a group of researcher's who are researching the WILDER Surname. The Group was created in September 1998 and consists of all past, current and future subscribers to any of our WILDER RootsWeb Mailing Lists. Currently, there are over 100 subscribers to our Mailing Lists who have contributed both their records and their research via our WILDER RootsWeb Mailing Lists and/or our WILDER GenConnect Boards, and ultimately to our WILDER Connections Web Site.
The Primary Goal and Mission of our WILDER Research Group is to document our WILDER Ancestors and our WILDER-Associated Lines by donating and sharing freely both our records and our research.
Our WILDER RootsWeb Mailing Lists are the primary vehicles for conducting our research for the following reasons: (1) They are primarily "Research and Discussion Lists" rather than "Query Lists," and (2) we actively welcome all researchers of not only WILDER Lines, but also WILDER-Associated Lines to join us.
Ultimately, records and research posted to our WILDER RootsWeb Mailing Lists and our WILDER GenConnect Boards will be published to our WILDER Connections Web Site. It is impossible, however, to keep pace with the postings. As a result, the WILDER Connections Web Site is almost always "Under Construction."
Also note that the information published on the WILDER Connections Web Site includes Copyright Restrictions designed specifically to (a) protect the WILDER Research Group's research efforts from abuse or misuse; and (b) protect the copyright protections of individual Researchers and published Authors who have provided material for our use.
Copyright Information and Restrictions: The Research, Records, Photographs, Documents, and other information contained on the WILDER Connections Web Site has been provided for the free use of those engaged in non-commercial genealogical research by our WILDER Research Group.

IMPORTANT! Your Help is Desperately Needed. If, after reading more about us, you decide that our WILDER Research Group is not for you (i.e. too time consuming, you're more interested in a Query list, etc.), we would still appreciate you posting your WILDER Records and Information (deeds, census records, biographies, bible records, marriages, pensions, etc.) to any of our WILDER RootsWeb Mailing Lists and/or our WILDER GenConnect Boards. We would love for you to join us, but if that's not feasible or desirable, please Lend Us Your WILDER Records and Information to help us continue our mission in Documenting our WILDER's.
