Member of the Week: French WikiTreer Isabelle Huth.
"WikiTree taught me to cite my sources correctly, to be more rigorous, and to share with other WikiTreers. WikiTree also helped me to find cousins around the world, among the descendants of glassmakers for example."
Last week: Pam Smith is an Adoption Angel and helps the Unknowns Team track down missing last names.
"I love trying to solve the puzzles. Most of these profiles are for women; I find that many researchers don't follow their maternal lines with the same diligence as they do their paternal lines. Records are sometimes scarce, but it breaks my heart that a woman could marry, not even be listed by name on the marriage license or the children's birth records, and then be buried as Mrs. [insert husband's name here]. I want to learn who she was, who her family was, and try to re-connect her to her family and her roots."

"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
