Member of the Week: Gill Whitehouse helps new members in the England Project's Orphan Trail training program.
"The Orphan Trail is such a great way to learn, even if like me you don't think there's much left to learn, you soon find out that there's so much more and places that you never thought of looking."
Last week: David Hamilton co-leads the South Carolina Team for the US Black Heritage Project.
"We could use more volunteers for any of the state team pages, or for researching specific types of slavery-related records: black cemeteries, free persons of color, black notables, plantations, etc."

"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
"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
