Member of the Week: Susie Officer helps coordinate the England Project's Orphan Trail.
"The Orphan Trail helped me no end when I was getting started. Being in Australia, I would not have had a clue where or how to find digital records about my family in England — or how to cite them or organise my findings."
Last week: Joan Hollander, a coordinator for our Netherlands Project. She loves that WikiTreers "are so friendly and willing to help. We all are here with the same goal. To grow and improve our tree." Her advice to new members:
"Check if there is a project for the area you are interested in. They can help you get started and provide you with the correct guidelines."
