There is nothing I enjoy more than hunting down more members of my family tree, except, perhaps, helping others hunt down their own mysteries.
I was a fairly early user of WikiTree and have enjoyed the journey. Chris Whitten, the owner/operator of WikiTree has created a wonderful tool and made it free for all who share the journey. WikiTree is about sharing! We are all part of one great big family tree, but many wish to focus a little more narrowly (it can get quite overwhelming).
If you enjoy the journey and also like helping others, there are many ways you can do it on WikiTree. First, you must love sharing information (subject to any privacy concerns). You must also agree to WikiTree's Honour code. This is mainly about collaboration and respect for others.
There are also many projects by WikiTree members on various subjects. Some of these members give selflessly of themselves in an constant attempt to improve the quality of information that is on WikiTree. Volunteering is a way of life for many! If you like helping people, look into the various projects and see if one matches an interest of yours.
Project Co-ordinator, that is, as a long trusted member of the WikiTree community I have been given additional powers to help others. This in mainly in the area of opening the Privacy levels of profiles which are over 200 years old to the most open level, which is what is required for such profiles on WikiTree.
I can also be of assistance in helping with merges where a profile manager may be un-responsive. Every avenue must be exhausted before this occurs.
If I can be of assistance to any WikiTreer, drop me a line.
My personal interests include: Photography, astronomy, walking, bushwalking, cycle touring, ten pin bowling, arts and crafts, movies and cinema, theatre, science fiction, history, genealogy, technology, environment, social issues.
My main family tree interests are: Oxley (from Kent, England 1839 to Australia), Standen (from Kent, England, 1841), Hayes, Wall, Bech (from Korsor, Denmark).
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Family Tree DNA.

I am joining the cemeteries group. I have an interest in the Central West of NSW, and have already photographed several. Two of those (Trunkey and Tuena) I have transcribed and are almost ready for publication. Only need to go back and check out a few things that weren't clear in the photos, which I should do next Thursday. I have a number of others on my "to do" list including a couple of small graveyards on private property. I would also appreciate you organising the Cemeterist badge onto my profile.

I have tried unsuccesfully to contact the project co-ordinator of New Zealand Cemeteries Project on several occasions. I am the profile manager of 18 cemeteries, and would like to be provided a cemeterist badge for the work so far. I did have an initial contact and was referred to Maria Maxwell, who got me started with some project basics some months ago. Do I need to do something else to qualify for the badge that I have not completed?
