I have been thinking about my over two years on WikiTree. I often tell people that in 18 years of doing Genealogy, I met a handful of cousins through that work - none of them really wanted to collaborate. Then I stumbled into WikiTree and I can't even count the number of cousins who have found me!
I also started thinking about my knowledge base in Genealogy. I have a BA degree, but certainly not in Genealogy. The time I spent working in my College's library may suffice as one of the corner stones in my Genealogical education for sure, but the time on WikiTree in the last two years has expanded my Genealogical knowledge base exponentially.
You will expand yours as well, here are some tips to forward your education:
- Check in on new questions in G2G once a day
- Answer simple help questions in G2G daily
- Read through more involved G2G questions daily
- Participate in the more involved discussion on G2G
- Join a project
- Work on Categories for your profiles
- Become a Mentor
Have anything you would like to add to the list?
