"I am a guide on the Tartan Trail for the Scotland Project. I hope that I can encourage others to gain skills and knowledge in genealogy and at the same time become better myself. ... Come join the trail and gain some insight into Scottish records and practice your profile writing skills."
Last week: Betsy Ko.
"Aside from WikiTree's commitment to accuracy, the other thing that I find to be exceptional about our community is that I've really been able to genuinely connect with others. ... Seeing the amazing things that other WikiTreers are accomplishing is a continual inspiration to me. I also value being part of a community where kindness, helpfulness, and humor are to be found in abundance."
Earlier: Michelle Detwiler.
"I spend most of my time sourcing and creating plantations and profiles for those who were enslaved, working with the US Black Heritage Project (USBH). We're always looking for volunteers. USBH has a small skill-building training called PATH. This training helps volunteers learn to properly record African-American profiles and those who were enslaved. ... We have hundreds of enslaved persons who need profiles created."

"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
