Chris is the founder of this website, WikiTree. Previous to this he created WikiAnswers (aka "FAQ Farm", now Answers.com, 2001-2007) and Free-Market.Net (1995-2001).

Biography

Chris grew up in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, with his mother Donna and brother Ted. His father Ted and step-mother Vicki were in the nearby town of Ashby.

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 there he transferred to New York University to study economics. He graduated from NYU in 1993.

After college he stayed in New York City and worked as the managing editor of a mail order book catalog called 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 update 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 newer 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.

In 2001 Chris retired from 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 moved back from Chicago to New York City. Megan was offered a job on Wall Street. 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 and take advantage of the new economies of scale. In both 2007 and 2008 WikiAnswers was the fastest growing site among the largest US websites. It is now a top 25 US website and gets millions of visitors per day.

In 2008 Chris began work on this site, WikiTree.

Hi Chris, I just wanted to say thank you for the "Current" information on the bugs fixes and a more in depth explanation of how the database functions. I appreciate the opportunity to contribute to the WikiTree and understanding the complexities of building this Tree.

Hi Chris, While I support completely the need for one tree, I am rather frustrated with the need to be a trusted contributor for my grandfather. I have been trying to add him and his ancestors but have not received permission. What happens when the administrator is traveling, sick or dead? I am about to decide my time is better spent on other sites, but I don' want to give up, yet.- Bonnie

Hi Chris, our mutual cousins Alison and Matt have (more or less unintentionally) led me to the discovery that you and I are 11th cousins 4 times removed. We are both descendants of John Harrington, who was my 10th great-grandfather and your 14th. ~Pamela

P.S. I really like the new relationship finder and the way it shows our many joint ancestors!

Hi Chris,

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

Thanks Chris, The concept here on Wikitree is that which I have used to create various trees during those slow periods which we all encounter. The duplications on the IGI are quite frustrating as a person can have many birth dates, for example sometimes 100 years apart! I have been merging folks in these trees for years. I should enjoy being part of this project.

Hi CHris
 I know this is off the subject but:   Do you know what it means when someone states    He is your cousin once removed?  What does once or twice removed mean.  I should probably look on wikianswers but I somehow ended up on this site this am.  That is because in the past you have tried to help me with my missing Bagley ancestor which we have never found.

Hi Chris! Thanks for writing to me! I have been doing family research for a few years on ancestry, but thought I'd try this as well. So far, I have traced the Whitten name back to Richard Whitten who was born in 1654. I will be adding more information over the next few weeks, so maybe we'll find out that we are related!! My dad, Robert David Whitten, passed away in September of last year, and it renewed my interest in this research as his family was not close at all. I also recently found out that his sister Barbara (Whitten) Tibbetts passed away as well.. there aren't many of us left.

When I add deceased grandparents or step parents to my tree, the system switches them from white to yellow privacy levels. Now I can not add myself as a PM or do anything else for that matter. In fact, no one can. I tried to totally disassociate myself and now Crow-968 is totally locked with no way of changing anything on that profile. Help!

DNA page is very cool. I especially like the links to the tesing company page.

For the mtDNA, You could ask for comments like the mtDNA haplogroup, HVR1 mutations and/or HVR2 mutations. Other testees will be able to see if they have any matches to your codes.

Thank you Chris. My profile is a bit empty right now. I am a bit shy about putting so much personal information out on the web. I predate most of the online genealogy having started my research in the 1990s. When the advent of online sites began I was thrilled to see archival material appear online and to have other researchers with which to discuss things. Sadly online genealogy has become a hot mess filled with sloppy research, no documentation, and "name collectors" who pay a pretty penny to well advertized genealogy sites to pick up a questionably researched family tree. I am really looking forward to sharing data and bouncing around a hypothesis or two with real researchers who have rolled their sleeves up and who have actually visited an archival library.

I received a series of emails that ended with this: "06:50: Roger Travis edited the Biography for Charlotte MacKrell." He and another person "decided" that Charlotte isn't related to Henry Squire. I have info found on Ancestry to that says otherwise, not from family trees. I sent an email last night to him saying what I have seen about Charlotte but I guess he didn't see it and so deleted all info about her except the fact of her birth. I am very upset in that two people can "think" someone should be taken out of a family and does it "just like that". What about those of us who don't go along with their idea?

Do I contact their caretakers and ask for the profile to be cleaned up/sourced or what? At this point a merge would end up with more problems than solutions. The marriage of James to Mary (Guild) [McNutt] [Lynds] Whidden is shown as 1740 but I have after 1768, making her either the second or third marriage. Prescott records show a James Whidden m.

I did not like to be called Maria OR Mercedes although I have come to accept this some. When I married I became Maria Coppinger. That represented a complete loss of identity to me. To make things worse, my mother-in-law was Marie and our birthdays were very close. Our legal and medical records got mixed up and this lasted almost a decade after she died.

Hi Chris,

I sent an email with summer discounts by FTDNA, share it with anyone you think might like to take advantage of 25% off DNA testing.

I've added my DNA info & will include linkes to FTDNA Whitten project charts. I don't think you should duplicate the likes of y-search.org and mitosearch.org; we should be encouraging others to make use of their info.

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.

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.

Hi Chris,

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.

Are there any special WikiTree instructions or limitations that speak to split families?
