I participate in a number of Facebook genealogy groups and have been promoting WIKI tree there..
Hi Sue! That's great! I'm going to send you a pm with more details.
I would like to help, but am mainly self-taught and don't know the ins and outs of the system. I'm more of a data maintenance kind of person, and have been entertaining myself by helping with the merging of individuals (clean data tree!  Yoohoo!), so not sure how I could help.

Due to the pandemic, I have been mentioning Wikitree on my small social media footprint as a stuck-home-what-to-do hobby, as so much is available online to work up family histories. Stir-crazy is good energy for searching online.

I also think you should raise your/our visibility since Blackstone is taking over Ancestry.com soon, and many people would not like that entity to have access to their data; Wikitree offers an alternative home for their data.
Hi CJ, we'd love to have you! I'm sending you a pm with more details.
I tried adding Ambassador as the instructions said.  Tried twice and both times got an error saying to only add one tag at a time, but that is exactly what I did.  I have been making WT presentations for several years and would like to join.  Atkinson-5584
Hi Scott, we're happy to have you join the team! Look for a private message from me.

Probably should be a member of this Project as I frequently share what we are doing on Mondays with Myrt.

I am also an admin member of Geneabloggers.

Hello. I would love to be part of the Ambassadors Team! I have been blogging since 2003 and active on Social Media since 2009. My favorite social network is Twiter and I would also love to be part of the Social Media Team.

I would be able to assist in teaching writing/blogging and social meida skills. I would like to learn more about forums.

Thank you!

I think this is a brilliant idea, I'm trying to get a local genealogical society to allow me to use the entrance and overview photos of a cemetery I'm working on and they didn't know much about wikitree. I've sent them the link to the wikitree free space page, so now I'm just waiting for their decision, and I'm the actual origional photographer -so I can say this isn't easy. It's a pity there isn't more collaboration between wikitree people and the genealogical society.
by Pam Cormac Smith G2G6 Mach 6 (60.1k points)
Hi Pam! That's wonderful! I'm going to send you a pm with more details.
Well, when you get permission to use the cemetery front photos you took  please let me know and I will give you my list.  I am a Volunteer photographer for f-a-g  and us... thank you
Sadly they declined permission, but said that I was welcome to put up new photo's on the WikiTree cemetery page and they would not be offended

The Social Media team might want to look into Reddit as well; /r/genealogy has a fair bit of activity so there are genealogists there.

Hi Matthew! We'd love to have you! I'm sending you a pm with more details.
Thanks, Azure, but I am not comfortable joining an Ambassador team. It was just a suggestion!
No problem, Matthew! Thanks for making it!

I would love to spread the word about WikiTree and join the presenters team.  I have over 25 years experience presenting and teaching to groups of all sizes and ages as well as creating presentations.  I would enjoy traveling to genealogical societies in my state and neighboring states as a presenter.

HI, I have been doing the Genealogy stuff for nearly over 20 years. Have done my share at this site recently past year.. I have commented about this site many times on Facebook to my friends and family, when I was going to do special help.. This is a great place.. Few friends are here at the site. Have helped some.. Pam from Maine

Thinking maybe the Social Media would be best, Thanks. Here in Maine, can link some obits from old newspapers.. Could do Link Building..  Thanks

I like to clean up data, but am not terribly familiar with the ins and outs of this system. I would be happy to help, if someone can give me guidance as to what to do.

Hi, all - I blog at https://mightieracorns.blogspot.com/ and I have a Facebook page, Twitter feed, and Ko-fi.

I put the WikiTree widget on my blog when I joined, and once I get my enormous book edited for publication, I plan to do more actual contributing.

In the meantime, I'm happy to share/like/retweet/etc. I'm also on MeWe, though that is a small, quiet community at the moment.

I'd love to give a hand. I'd love to start a blog and talk about my ancestors and WikiTree (which is awesome, regardless what the haters will say) ..... 

BUT... I'd need some guidance and schooling in Creative writing for Blogging

yes,  would love to help.  I already talk up wikitree. with my Sisters in DAR, DUV and LGAR... and facebook.  I sent a suggestion to Azure just a few minutes ago regarding the FREE SPACE  she mentioned, I asked months ago if WE could add a FREE SPACE to the Category: D--- A-- R--  and break it down to Chapters... right now I can not tell you how many DAR members I have met.  Thank you for the chance to  make it better.

I want to be an Ambassador. Link Building with FindAGrave would be a perfect fit for my interests and time constraints. I'm so excited about this new project that I started on my first one, my grandfather, Clyde Thomas Fuller:
