Hi Evelyn welcome into the G2G Feed :)

I had to venture here (G2G) to find out things, still learning the ropes and now and again tripping up.  Thankfully we can ask/answer questions.

Hello Evelyn, it's a little overdue, but welcome anyway. What's different about WikiTree is that you are not on your own. People here are very keen to help, all you need to do is ask. There are also people who mentor new people, you probably already have one (that person would have posted a message on your profile soon after you joined). Sure, there are style guidelines and recommended ways of doing things, but you can pick those things up as you go along. In the end nothing is, or is expected to be, perfect. Mistakes get made, I've rewritten some of my profiles several times as I find that I had wrong information. The most important thing is that you try to live by the WikiCode that we all signed up to. Good luck with your researching, it can be a lot of fun - in between the periods of absolute frustration ;)

Hi Evelyn and Welcome! I am so glad you found the G2G and decided to let us know you are here. I understand how things might seem complicated and a little overwhelming, I felt exactly the same when I joined last year.

There are many ways to find help here, you have found the first one already. The rest is all documented within the icons on the top right of the page. Everything you need to know is within those drop down lists. The end one - help has an abundance of files just waiting give you the help you need. There are also mentors as Chris mentioned and of course our hub of communication G2G.

Please don't feel you are alone, if you get stuck and need help or just don't understand something please ask, that's why G2G is here. Someone will jump in to help you.

Have fun researching and enjoy the pleasures when you find another long lost ancestor.

Please don't take this as a criticism. but shouldn't that be "our" project. You are as much a part as the rest of us.
