On https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:Home you should see a form to fill in to "Volunteer" and become a member.

In case you don't manage to do this on your own, I'm adding the tag "greeters" to your comment to alert the WikiTree Greeters who help folks like you get set up as members.

PS - If the Dirck Terwilliger you are referring to is Terwilliger-153, please know that before you start editing profiles like his, you should plan to spend some time getting acquainted with WikiTree (and helping the rest of us get to know you!) by adding some of your recent ancestry.

It's probably best to start with a profile for yourself and work upwards rather than diving straight in to an ancestor's profile.
I wouldn't do that  I need to fill the blanks in between first  I have  the minisink historical society  helping me with the decker's  I live just miles from everything Kingston is just a hour drive  and i'm helping restore gumaer cemetery  finding forgotton lost stones  and some just have their marks on them the earliest stone so far is 1713 I wish there was a cross reference for   owners marks

Glad to see that you're set up, Joe. smiley  You also should plan on signing the Honor Code so that you will be fully qualified WikiTreer.

Once you get settled in more, I hope you will consider joining us in the New Netherland Settlers Project.  It will be great to have an additional "on the ground" researcher interested in -- and familiar with -- the Minisink area. The historical geography is very confusing to people had ancestors there, but don't live anywhere nearby.

Judy Testa kind of jumpstarted our coverage of the Gumaer Cemetery (see https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Gumaer_Cemetery and the associated category), but I imagine you could add more content to the informational page, and document more individuals who were buried there.

she is the one i'm working with and that's were I was referring to last fall my son found a new stone and they dug up two more  i'm going back in the spring with my metal detector to see what can be found  I have my sons helping I have five sons and three girls
Wow! While most cemetery volunteers merely photograph gravestones, you're digging them up! That's great!

I added a couple more tags to your post...
