I am trying to establish a collaborative tree for my family. Can WikiTree do this?

+5 votes
I am trying to establish an online collaborative tree for my family and relatives. The idea is that everyone can log in, view the tree and carry out additions/corrections with change time stamps or approvals by me as the administrator of the tree. Further, I would like to invite certain members to fulfil or correct certain parts of the tree. They can simply login from anywhere and correct the details entered.

As a prequel to this, I have generated a tree in MacFamily Tree already and can export to gedcom. Can I use the gedcom as a skeleton starting tree for the above collaborative effort? If so, could you please advise how this could be done?


Thank you.

Yes and no.

You can't have a separate collaborative tree on Wikitree. There is only one shared tree.

You can be the manager of profiles in the tree. You can restrict editing of profiles you manage that are less than 200 years old to a list of trusted individuals. All individuals over 200 years old can be edited by anyone on Wikitree. All edits are tracked with a timestamp and who made the change. Changes can be reversed. If a profile is already in the tree, you need to work with the manager of that profile instead of creating a duplicate that you control.
