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).

Hi Paul, I was hoping you'd be able to give me the cemeteries badge. I'm currently working on New Zealand cemeteries- I'm already part of the Google+ Group.

Hello, I have noticed that the only person helping with Russian translations doesn't have an account anymore. I am able to translate short Russian texts and printed documents and would like to help. However, I can not decipher Russian handwriting in most cases.

Hi Paul.

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.
