Thanks Santino, yes, they are an excellent resource and are easily linked in WikiTree profiles.

You can link the other way around too.

I contacted Trove about adding WikiTree profile URL's to articles. Their advice was as long as it was not a link to a closed resource it was fine to link. Just copy and paste a URL in the comments section beside the article (perhaps with some accompanying text, such as "family tree" or "ancestral info".
Thanks Paul, what a great tip!  I had never thought of that.
What a wonderful idea!!
