Member of the Week: Palatine Migration Project member Michael Schell. Michael likens WikiTree to a collaborative jigsaw puzzle where the pieces you're putting together eventually connect with the pieces others have put together. "That process of hooking up is the funnest part about jigsaw puzzles and also the funnest part about WikiTree."
Last week: David Urquhart volunteers as an Arborist, Connector, Ranger, and Sourcerer. "I have found WikiTree to be extremely addictive and move about whereever the distraction takes me. I enjoy being involved in projects because of the interaction and collaboration."
Previously: Paula Franklin is active in the Global Cemeteries, Categorization, and Data Doctors projects. Her advice to new members: ask questions in G2G. "Remember, it is not your tree or my tree, but our tree, and each and every one of us has a vested interest in improving and sourcing it. We will be happy to help you."

"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
