Profile pages for people are the essential building blocks of WikiTree. There are also Free-Space Profiles for describing places, events, pets, and things that have been important to you or your ancestors. Click here for more on the difference between the two types of profiles.
Profiles of People
Every person on our growing worldwide family tree has a profile page. Here's an example.
At the top of the left column is the person's full formal name and dates. This is followed by their spouse, siblings, and children. Clicking any of these names will take you to that other person's profile.
You can add or change any information by clicking the Edit tab.
Beneath the narrative is a section for Memories about the person.
In the right column is space for Photos. There is also a Comments section for you to post messages for other people working on this person's family history.

Advanced Note: Passive vs. Active Profiles
Advanced WikiTreers may be interested in the following.
All the person profiles on our worldwide wiki family tree look essentially the same, but the person may be Passive, Pending, or Active.
Technically, a profile without an e-mail address is Passive. When you invite someone to join by adding an e-mail address to their profile it is considered Pending. When the person accepts the invitation and creates their own password they "take possession" of the person profile and it becomes Active.
