Magazine Cover "WikiTree is a great, collaborative, global family tree site for genealogists of every level from every part of the world." —Family Tree Magazine UK, November 2023

"Before WikiTree, I was skeptical and discouraged about big one-single-trees because there were (are) so many errors, but WikiTree is different because it's collaborative, genial and there are people available to help resolve any issues." — Roberta Estes, blogger

"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, member since 2014


Karen St. Jean Member of the Week: Puritan Great Migration Project member Karen St. Jean [interview]. Her advice to new members:

"Jump in! There is a learning curve, but doesn't everything? Learn something new, and enjoy being able to tell your ancestors' stories. There are so many great genealogists working on WikiTree, take advantage of them, and ask for help."

Kaitlyn Emmett Last week: Adoption Angel and member of the England and Australia projects, Kaitlyn Emmett [interview].

"I signed up for WikiTree in 2018, but didn't get properly involved for a few years. In 2020 I was encouraged to undertake the England Project's Orphan Trail, which was a wonderful apprenticeship in the ins and outs of WikiTree ... and found myself hooked."
