Salt Lake City is about to be inundated with Genealogists of all flavors.  

Of particular concern are the Orange Breasted WikiTreer's who will be laying down a wall of Orange that unsuspecting Genealogists will have to break through.  They are easily found however, as there will be much merriment, enthusiasm and persuasion emanating from their lair.

As a result, over the next week, two things may happen.  First, WikiTree will be inundated with Proselytes looking for an awesome time and in need of guidance.  Second, many of the Leaders and Staff of WikiTree will be otherwise occupied so some responses to questions may be a bit delayed.

Fortunately, we have many great Members on WikiTree who are ready to jump in and show their expertise.

Can we reach 300,000 members this week?   

How fast can we reach 12 million profiles?

Welcome to RootsTech Week!

I just added the Greeters tag to your post.

Brace yourself, Greeters!!! ;-)
Have a great time! One year I'll get there to experience it!!

We shall prepare ourselves for the new branches of our tree and check to make sure the new forest elves are behaving properly and getting their questions answered!
We missed you Abby!!
I concur with all of this - especially the part where we missed Abby AND Erin! Mags

I always get a charge out of the pictures from these events.  They remind me of my brother-in-law, the attorney, who was formerly a county public defender.  Many of the people represented by the public defender turn out to be guilty as charged and are issued prison garb, and brother-in-law used to joke about how all of his clients wear orange clothes.  So my thought, when I see a picture of a crowd of Wikitreers, ...  Oh well, never mind.
