Hi Chris,

There is no connection.

I started thinking about a wiki tree while I was still working on WikiAnswers, so I registered the domain name WikiTree.com.

A year later, while I was still focused on WikiAnswers, someone registered the domain name WikiTree.org and got started on the same basic "wiki tree" idea.

WikiTree.org hasn't been active for years.
