Welcome to WikiTree! Our goal is one big tree. We all work as a team to make this happen.
It doesn't matter if you have a lot of ancestors to add or just a few, getting started is easy! Add your personal tags, family surnames or topics that might interest you with a short description below them. Tags are very important and will help you connect with others about people, projects, etc. Then click the volunteer button below, and that's all you need to do.
Once you volunteer, one of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way! I am looking forward to seeing you on Wiki Tree. I hope we have some tags in common.
Welcome to the family! We’re really glad you’re here.
