That is awesome! So every little bit does matter doesn't it. This is encouraging. some times I feel like I am spinning my wheels.
If everyone just keeps adding stuff....

I am entering a new tree that I got from one of the Stetson Cousins - for a branch of the family that isn't all that well documented, and zap! here comes a whole bunch more family that we didn't have connected.

Well, I personally joined back when the help pages didn't and had no clue what G2G meant. Nobody told me, I just had to eventually find it on my own. Since then I exploded into a few projects, doing Data Doctoring, and maintaining a spreadsheet/livechat to help further the big boost Ales is giving us with WikiTree+. I'm sure I will get to Astronaut eventually unless someone else has to take over and wrap up my profile. (humorous death angle)

Let's keep up the good work and hope to see you all on the sheet, in the chat, here in G2G, and combing through all those profiles. WoOt!!!
