Which Are You?

1. Genealogist

If nobody has thanked you for it lately, let us. Thank you. You rock. You've honored the memory of those who have come before you and done a service for those who will come after you.

"I've used other services including Ancestry.com, Footnote.com, etc. but none were as easy and accessible for sharing and collaboration."— Jay Byrne

WikiTree is a way for you to leverage the work you've done and share it with others.

You can keep copyrights, get the credit you deserve for your research, and maintain the privacy you need for your family.

If your tree is already digital — on another website or in family tree software — you can export a GEDCOM and upload it here for matching.

If your tree isn't digital yet ... well, you've known for years that this day was coming. WikiTree makes it easy to enter it all one step at a time.

For you, WikiTree is cake.

"We had a very enjoyable Sunday morning here in Dublin with my brother & his family & our Mum & Dad going through all the family tree, memories, photos etc. The snow & ice were left behind outside as we all got warm & fuzzy inside!" — Jane from Ireland

If you ...

We don't expect everyone in our families to become active genealogists. Part of the enjoyment of family history is just knowing that our family members can access and appreciate it. As you browse WikiTree, it would be great if you help fill in blanks you see, correct any errors, and maybe post an occasional personal memory or photograph to enrich our family members' profiles.

See our Help section for more information or post a message in our friendly genealogist-to-genealogist (G2G) forum.
