The search box works for first and last names not for ID Number

If you want to put in an ID# use the url. http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/xxxxx-#. Replace the xxx's etc with the ID.

I can't remember the url so I just open my profile (from the drop down box above) and change the ID to the one I'm trying to get to.

Hi Patricia,

Try going to any profile page and backspace through the Name-ID in the "address bar" and replace it with the Name-ID you are searching for.

Happy Searching!
