Welcome to Wikitree, Rachel!
If you add tags to your profile, you will connect with fellow researchers interested in the same topics as you. You might even meet some new cousins! You can add up to twenty tags for surnames, locations, etc. To add tags, use the add drop down menu and choose followed tags. Tags also effect the email updates from Wikitree.
Come back here to the forum if you have any questions along the way.
Enjoy your journey into the past!
