Member of the Week: Dave Rutherford helps defend our shared tree as a Ranger and volunteers with the Canadian and UK projects. "I have been astonished at the number of folks who have contacted me over the years [because of WikiTree]. And not just distant cousins. I've heard from historians, museum curators, professors and old friends of people who I've profiled .... I have heard from people on every continent (except Antarctica of course). I've worked with folks from Chengdu, China to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Every day is a new adventure. I don't know who I will hear from when I turn on my computer!"

"It's been wonderful to experience how collaborative genealogy in WikiTree makes all of us better genealogists. Collaboration on our shared ancestors encourages us to share information and to hold each other to high standards." — Ellen Smith
