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).

Thank you, Paul, for correcting or adding Status Indicators for my Maternal Great Grandparents, Ida (Chapman) Quick and Hiram Quick. Going forward, it would be useful for me to see how I documented the references. If you retained "before" and "after" snapshots, I would appreciate being able to compare them.

Hi, Paul. I am interested in joining the Australian Convicts project, but when I click on the link on the project page for the G2G feed, it tells me the page isn't found. How do I go about joining? My husband is a direct descendant of several of the first convict families.

Paul, I notice that you are listed as the leader on the German Glossary. I have worked with church records from southern Germany (mostly after 1650) and have a number of (archaic) terms to contribute, if interested.
