Join The Free Family Tree, growing since 2008.
  1. We are a community of genealogists working together to grow an accurate single family tree using DNA and traditional genealogical sources.
  2. Modern family history is private. As you go back in time the privacy controls open up.
  3. Everything on WikiTree is free including many benefits for genealogists who embrace our 9-Point Honor Code.
Our shared tree includes 15,442,872 profiles (3,176,761 with DNA test connections) edited by 461,860 genealogists from around the world.

A member's poem for WikiTree: One tree, two tree ....

"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
