Member of the Week: Elaine Weatherall is a Cemeterist and leads the US Black Heritage Project's Heritage Exchange, a group dedicated to building family trees that connect enslaved ancestors with their descendants.
"I also participate in many of the WikiTree Challenge weeks. I've learned so much about new sources in the US and elsewhere, and appreciate the camaraderie."
Last 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."

"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
