Every time you do something on WikiTree it is logged. Even if you are just correcting a typo or merging profiles.

To find all of your contributions go up to the drop down menus top right of the page, click on My WikiTree, then scroll down to Contributions. You will see everything you have ever done on WikiTree (another link to contributions is also on your profile page, left side, under your name).

To see what changes have been done to a specific profile, while on the profile page click the Changes tab at the top of the page. You will see everything that has been done to that profile since it was originally created.

Have fun and WikiTree on you wonderful WikiTreers!

Loving the Mentor Tips! (I know, a little late to the show)

One thing I've learned with working with new users is that they often don't understand hyperlinks and how to recognize/use them. Therefore a HUGE part of the WikiTree experience is left completely in the dark for them.

For that reason, I've found it important to point out that when looking at the "Changes" log, you can click on the "underlined action phrase" to see an actual before and after of the specific change that was made...

I plan to start using these Mentor Tips to help explain concepts to newbies, so I wanted to include a follow up on how much more useful the "Changes" log is when you realize, in WikiTree, if it's underlined - it's a link to more info concerning the underlined subject. Click it, use it, then click "Back" to get back to what you were.

Sometimes, as we're pontificating about advanced literature and beautiful poetry, we forget what it was like to learn "what sound does an A make". Therefore a communications barrier opens up between the teacher and the student.
 
Thank You Mags! These Mentor Tips are awesomeness all over!
