Hi Michael!  We are so glad you joined us!

Start on your own profile Edit tab by adding your parents. Then from each of their profile Edit tabs, enter their parents.  

It shouldn't take too long before you can add a set of parents that are already on your Watchlist.  To connect profiles already on WikiTree, enter the profile ID number for that person in the text box that says: 

A.) If you know that this mother already has a WikiTree profile enter their WikiTree ID here:   

Entering the WikiTree ID will make the family connection and you will not create a duplicate.  It is always best to use a profile ID number if one already exists.

I hope this helps!
