I'm new to Wikitree and was wondering how you go about putting your family tree up here to start building it ?  

Thanks,

Hi Misty

We appreciate that you want to join us and hope that you will enjoy the experience.

First though, please finish the process of filling out your tags and clicking on Volunteer button as explained in the initial email. Once you do that you will be confirmed by one of our friendly greeters!!

Here's how to do the Tags: 

You may want to add some tags on your page indicating a family name for one tag and a specific location like a country, state etc you are interested in, for another tag and then add other surnames or locations as tags as desired. That way you will be connected to others with the same interest.

Click on http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:Following to add or remove tags. Be sure to add comments explaining why you're following the tags. Those appear on your profile too.

To find out if we have some of your ancestors, Just go to the top of your page by the WikiTree logo and fill in the search bars next to the magnifying glass icon. You will be surprised how many people we have with that surname!!
