The drill is you her sign up, Have her tell the folks that read these things that she wants to volunteer, that her Grandpa has told her all about her family, that she's read the Honor Code and pledges to abide by it. and could she please help with her ancestors?

Or some such.

actually, family don't even have to agree to the honour code, though they can if they want:

"Family and friends of Wiki Genealogists don't need to volunteer and sign the Honor Code.
Family Members aren't expected to contribute any serious genealogy. They get to enjoy the fruits of the tree without really helping to grow it.

Family Members are encouraged to participate on the profiles of close family members and flesh out the details of modern family history. They can help fill in the blanks, contribute to biographies, add personal memories, upload photos, etc.

Family Members need to be on the Trusted List to edit a profile. (Wiki Genealogists can edit any Open profile.)"

I can find no rule on age limitations; and as long as she understands the Honor Code, and has her own email address, I can't see any reason she should not be afforded the benefit of learning history, in a rich & meaningful manner.

Thanks everyone! Now the next time she comes over I will see how she feels about joining. I would like someone in the family to be interested.
