Hi Deborah,

1. Categories Team
2. Counties Team
3. Managed Profiles Team
4. Membership Team
5. Profile Improvement Team
6. Topics Team
7. Diaspora

? Can you let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project and which team(s) you’d like to join. Please also let me know your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group or confirm you are already a member of the google group.

Many thanks,

Hi Deborah. You were a valuable member of the Nor'Easters Source-a-Thon team last year. Are you signed up for this year yet? Thursday (tomorrow) is the last day for registration. If you decide to register, say in your post if you want to be on the Nor'Easters Team. We could use your help! Chris

Welcome to the 1776 Project (, a subproject of the Military and War Project:

There are category links to add to your ancestor's profiles and research links to learn more about your family. The Project is a good way to consolidate the WikiTree ancestors with historic connections to the years of 1773 (Boston Tea Party) to 1789 (ratification of the U.S. Constitution.) All patriot, loyalist, Hessians, French, Native Americans or any other profiles with a connection to these years should be linked to an appropriate category in the Project.

If you haven’t already, please set your preferences for your Tags Followed to include 1776 Project and any other tag terms that you wish to follow:

Some categories have a template (SAR) to add at the top of a biography. If not, add a category link by putting the category name such as
Deborah Barber participated in the American Revolution
for those who bore arms in the Revolution and
Deborah Barber served during the American Revolution
Service started:
Service ended:
for those who contributed patriotic or civil service. Thank you.

Hi, Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, here are a few more features you may find useful

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you will run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page. Sandy ~ WikiTree Mentor

Hello Deborah

Thank you for joining WikiTree. As a WikiTree Mentor I am available to answer any questions or help solve any issues you may be having.

How To Use WikiTree is a good starting point, and the Help Index is an important place to find out how to do most tasks. Don't forget our G2G Forum where many of our generous members help each other out.

Please make sure to look for duplicates on WikiTree before adding a profile. Having dates and locations attached to every person assists in our mission as well.

Esmé ~ WikiTree Mentor

Deborah --

You are now a member of the WikiTree Community. Please note we are trying to build one Collaborative Tree which means one profile per person. It is important to ensure no duplicates are entered as you add Profiles to WikiTree - if you have pre-1700's ancestors to add please read our Pre-1700 profiles info.

Some ideas to help you get started:

  • Explore the Help Menu on the top right.
  • Check out our introductory WikiTree video.
  • Visit the G2G forum where you can ask questions and get answers.
  • If you need more help, contact a member of our top-notch Mentor Team.



Before I confirm your membership, here's a link to great information about GEDCompare, the process of adding a GEDCOM to WikiTree. I hope you find it helpful.

The help pages give lots of information about the process. Start with 'Before you import a GEDCOM'.

If you have any brick walls, collaboration might help bust through. Because WikiTree has only ‘’’one profile for each person’’’, the further back you go in your ancestry, the more likely cousins will find you and help out. ANY Wiki Genealogist can edit "Open" profiles (over 200 years old = open). There's also a brickwall tag in the G2G forum: brickwall


Deborah is 22 degrees from Danielle Liard, 17 degrees from Jack London and 18 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
