The initial email from Wiki Tree has helpful links that will get you started on WikiTree, 

First however, you have to complete the process (stated in the very first email.) You have to "volunteer" , sign the Honor code, and select some tags you want to follow, like last names of ancestors or locations of where they live or lived. All that is in the inital email. 

If you are still having problems with that please read the following: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Registration_Problems

Once membership confirmed,,this is a good starting point, "How To Use WikiTree": http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/How_to_use_WikiTree " .Check this page out as well:  Getting Started: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Getting_Started_With_Genealogy .

On  your profile, enter all the known facts about your father and mother, including their other children.

Then do the same for them, enter their parents, Keep going, as far as you can.

Eventually you will encounter a match for some. Don't enter them write the profile manager and ask to be put on their Trusted List so you can add them as your ancestors.

Howdy Peter :), Become an Honor Code signatory:http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:Honor_Code Then start with your parents, then your grand parents etc... And yes we make a page / profile for each person.

This link still helps me, being new it should also help you:http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Jillaine's_Dream_Source_Help_Page
