Member of the Week profile image Member of the Week: Jim Angelo. "I did an extensive search to find what I thought was the right combination of an online, free-to-all, comprehensive genealogical database; sufficient but unobtrusive governance; and a collegial, congenial, cooperative atmosphere in support of mutually-shared objectives. WikiTree was the clear winner."
