Hello Kat! In the original email you received upon registration, there is a place to add your TAGS (people, places, events, etc. that interest you in your family history quest) and brief comments regarding those TAGS. Once that is completed, click on the box that reads ENTER TAG(s) AND VOLUNTEER.
I am watching the new guest activity page and when I see your Tags and volunteer message, I will be extremely please to confirm your full membership.
