Alicia Taylor Member of the Week: Alicia Taylor photographs headstones for the Cemeteries Project and adopts profiles to improve for the Profile Improvement Project. "On other sites, the whole purpose is to attach a record. Sometimes, that goes so quickly, you never really get to know your ancestor. On WikiTree, I've learned to really tell their story — where they lived, what they did, who they were."

Ludwig Kraayenbrink Last week: Ludwig Kraayenbrink has been a member for eight years. He's a Greeter, Data Doctor and Connector and participates in the Dutch Roots and Indonesia projects. His family says he's obsessed. He says "WikiTree relaxes me."   [more members & member quotes]

"It's been wonderful to experience how collaborative genealogy in WikiTree makes all of us better genealogists. Collaboration on our shared ancestors encourages us to share information and to hold each other to high standards." Ellen Smith
