Thought I would drop in and see how things are going with you. Looks like you have been busy which is great to see.

With all this work you should consider joining the Data Doctor project and ask to be added to the Australia team.

There is also the and its sub projects one of which is the Australian Date Doctor error report.

Thank you for your contribution. I look at every possible Reid relationship. A connection between a Reid in your family and mine is remote, but if you need me to look into Reid's from Virginia, let me know.

Hi Kevin,

You have done an amazing amount of work for the community in a very short time, you are putting in some serious hours to this. However you are making mistakes in the editing you are doing. Please respond to my email as we need to discuss the editing you are doing on other families profiles. The DB Project lead checked a number of your edits so we can assist you in developing your knowledge of editing. Some of these errors are simple - not using commas, not extending the information where possible by adding a County or Country.

There are pages and projects that can help with counties past and present The UK gov in 1965 and again in 1974 change county boundaries. The term United Kingdom came into use in January 1801.

We are here to talk and help each other Janet Data Doctor

This week we have your last stop on the guided tour. Hopefully, you're feeling like a WikiTree pro! If not, you can always revisit the tour stops via the comment boxes on the right side of your profile.

You've covered a lot of ground the past few weeks. Today, we want to give you just a few more tools that can take you even deeper into the WikiTree forest without getting lost: How to Dig a Little Deeper.

As always, your questions are welcome!

Hello Kevin,

You've probably been hard at work adding family members and getting connected to those that are already here. You should have at least a few profiles that you manage now. So, this week we're going to look at how to work with your Watchlist: How to Manage Your Watchlist.

As always, your questions are welcome!

Hi Kevin

I see that you recently did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Also noticed you made 1947 contributions to Wikitree, thank you! Here at WikiTree we like to have our members involved with others; collaboration is key!

I see by your tag you have family in Australia. You may be interested in our Australia project, check it out here: . Here is a list of our other WikiTree projects you might like to check out:

Why don't you also stop by the One Name Studies project, to see if there's already a name study for (surname) going on? The current leaders for that are Doug Lockwood and Alison Andrus.

Hey Again,

You've been here for three weeks now! We hope your profiles are starting to come together and that you've enjoyed getting to know us a little better.

You're probably getting a good feel for the collaborative nature of WikiTree by now. We know that collaboration isn't always easy. So, we've put together a few pointers that can make working in this type of environment a little easier: How to be a Successful WikiTreer.

Don’t hesitate to ask questions as that is the only way we gain knowledge!

Hi Thanks for joining us!

I'm a member of the Mentor project, and I just wanted to check in and see how things are going. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have, after working through How to Start Climbing Our Tree

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for completing the tags indicating you wish to research/document your family history. You are now a confirmed member, and you can get started adding your family members.

As we've said, WikiTree is quite different from other genealogy sites. So, we've put together a guided tour to help you learn how to use it. Your first stop is How to Start Climbing Our Tree.

Tomorrow, you'll hear from a Mentor who will check in to see how you're doing and answer any questions you might have.

Next week, you'll get another message with your next stop on the guided tour.

You can also meet some of our members by joining in the fun with our Question of the Week in the G2G forum: Do you have a favorite photo of an ancestor?

Great to have you on board and good luck growing your branches.

Hi Kevin,

A warm welcome to the WikiTree family! The initial email from us has helpful links that will get you started on WikiTree, which is not like any genealogy site you’ve ever used and it is FREE. WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all work together as a BIG collaborative team!

What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree? When you confirm your email address, you’ll have an opportunity to volunteer and tell us about your genealogical interests.

Once you volunteer, one of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way!

We’re really glad you’re here. More importantly, have fun growing your family tree and connecting to persons with the same interest.

Ludwig :)
