Wow Jack, you just passed me.  Wait up.  All kidding aside, I took up the computer at 75 and have pretty much self taught myself for the last five years.  My fourth grade granddaughter can do computer cart wheels around me.  There are many, including me, who have very few computer skills, arthritic fingers and poor eyesight, just to name a few.  Everyone will put their all in to help others when it is asked for.  Welcome aboard.
Jack, you were born only 1 year before I was, but I refuse to be old!  I have a retirement business as a professional web developer and donate my services to a local organization that receives donations of old/broken computers, which I repair/rebuild, after which they are donated to charitable organizations and people in need of a computer.  On the other hand, I'm new to genealogy and drive everyone here nuts with questions about very basic things.  There are a few other things I'm good at and far more things I'm totally ignorant of.

I'm sure you have many areas of expertise of which I am in abject awe, even if you are not fast at internet activities.  Isn't that just what makes us all unique??????

Anyhow, welcome to WikiTree and if you have any questions about anything - genealogy, using WikiTree, something you want to know about computers, or - in fact - anything else ... just start a topic about it here in G2G and there will be loads of people thrilled to answer questions or just discuss anything you're interested in.  You'll find a great community here ... after all, we're all family <wink>

Hello Jack, I hope you have fun on Wikitree. It looks as though you have made a good start to developing your branches. Don't forget to add sources to your profiles as you go along. That will make it much easier for you to check back on your work later and for others to help you.
