Member of the Week: Jan Hellier, a member of the Gloucestershire, Somerset and Dorset teams in the England Project.
"The county teams are always looking for others to join them and help make every profile well sourced, with a meaningful biography. It is very rewarding when you can give a profile a life story."
Last week: Alan Radecki, a member of the US Southern Colonies and Black Heritage projects. His advice to new members:
"JOIN A PROJECT! Sure, if you want to just add your folks to the tree and go home, you can do that, but you're missing out on so much that this community has to offer. And you're missing out on resources that can really add valuable content to your own tree."

"Before WikiTree, I was skeptical and discouraged about big one-single-trees because there were (are) so many errors, but WikiTree is different because it's collaborative, genial and there are people available to help resolve any issues." — Roberta Estes, blogger
