In 1989 he graduated from Fitchburg High School and started at Lyndon State College in the beautiful Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. After two years in the small business program at Lyndon he transferred to New York University. He graduated from NYU with a degree in economics in 1993.
After college he stayed in New York City and worked as the managing editor of a small mail order book catalog named Laissez Faire Books. Before Amazon.com this was the only source for many unusual books on libertarian philosophy and free-market economics. In 1994, he started experimenting with the Internet to sell books for Laissez Faire. The e-mail list he created there was one of the first of its kind.
In 1995 Chris left his job to create a libertarian community and networking site called Free-Market.Net: The Freedom Network (FMN). This site has been called "the mother of all libertarian websites" for its early work in promoting usage of the Internet among free-market organizations and individuals.
In 1997 he created a non-profit organization in Chicago called The Henry Hazlitt Foundation to be a home for FMN and its sister sites including libertarian.org, ifeminists.com and Bureaucrash. The foundation grew to employ five people full-time and more than a dozen people part-time.
In 2000 Chris met Megan McClellan who was finishing her math degree at the University of Chicago.
The next year, Chris left his non-profit work to be more entrepreneurial again. And to pay off his student loans. This led to the creation of FAQ Farm in 2002, which later became WikiAnswers and then Answers.com. WikiAnswers is a collaborative question and answer site where users can ask a question about anything and other users help answer them. The Q&As become permanent resources so that the same question never has to be asked twice.
In 2004 Chris and Megan moved back from Chicago to New York City. The next year, in 2005, Megan was offered a job in London and they took that opportunity to see Europe.
In 2006 Chris and Megan returned from England. They bought a home in northern Westchester County, NY.
Late that year Chris sold his WikiAnswers business. During 2007 he worked with Answers.com to integrate the site into their company. In both 2007 and 2008 WikiAnswers was the fastest growing site among the largest US websites. It became a top 25 US website with millions of visitors per day.
In 2008 Chris began work on this site, WikiTree, and has been working on it full-time ever since.

Thanks for the heads up. I went back and tightened up all my messages, then checked to make sure they were not running "outside the box" when I posted the comment. I think I misunderstood you before. I was having difficulty when I first starting greeting with my messages running past the dotted line box perimeter. You had mentioned that a space at the beginning was a code not to break the line. Evidently, we were talking about different lines. Anyway, thanks again. I do have another question...how do I provide a link for the people I greet to things like G2G or Honor Code, to cite two examples. (Did I give myself away that I have ZERO computer skills?) Thanks Chris...any and all help is greatly appreciated. Fred

Also, I notice the discussion of propagating DNA info up/down family trees, agree it ok to propagate up but propagating down generate a false sense of what the DNA shows which could only correctly be represented by the results of someone at the bottom being tested and propagating that up as appropriate.

I am working on a book for my 25 years of research on my family, and needed a place that several of us can colaborate on the book. I immediately thought wiki and went searching and found your site. It is exactly what I was looking for and some. All of our seperate data is on Ancestry, but here we can work together and join the seperate pieces of the same tree that we have been working on. Our branches have been connected using Y-DNA testing. Do you have any suggestions on how to include the testing results for the line of men the test connects? It would be nice to have a field to check on the males form "DNA test" and them a star would light up on every man affected by the test.

Thanks for the welcome message. I don't just like WikiTree... I love love love it! My two favorite things about it are the different security levels on every single page and item and the "Encyclopedia of You"! Great concepts that make me want to keep adding information! The only thing I see as being a challenge for me is adding source information in my biography. The tags are going to take some getting used to and they don't seem as amazingly user friendly as the rest of the site. Great help section too by the way. Very clear and easy to understand. Alright, I'm done rambling! :) Oops I forgot about the embeddable trees... that will be great on my blog page!

I messaged you late last year about a possible Whitten connection. I am related to Fred Whitten (possibly Frederick?) and I found out a few things about him. We know that he was born around the 1860's or so. We also know that he had a brother named Henry, and his occupation on his son's birth certificate was listed as a jeweler. I am wondering if you know anything about Fred, or if you think that we could possibly be related. I wish I knew more, but it has been extremely difficult to trace. When I was searching Fred Whittens born about 1860, I found the same family that you have (Samuel and Lydia.) The reason I think we may be related is that this was the only family I found that had both a Fred and a Henry.

These files were uploaded to test the capacity of WikiTree to recognize split families and to merge new profiles with existing profiles without rejection or duplication of valid profiles.
Are there any special WikiTree instructions or limitations that speak to split families?
