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.

my name is Joop van Belzen and I would like to participate in the Language_volunteers Project. I am a member of the Dutch_roots team and Project Coordinator of the "Dutch Portal/Nederlands Portaal" subproject. (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Nederlands_Portaal) The Dutch Portal is a link between the Netherlands and the rest of the Wikitree world visa versa. We have made extensive information in Dutch about WikiTree for beginners and advanced. We also translated the WikiTree Introduction to Dutch.
Currently I keep the Dutch Portal pages up to date and add information if needed.
I'm native Dutch speaker and second languages Englisch and German
Greetings from the Netherlands

Please could you add me to the convicts and early settlers project. My interest is primarily bounty and assisted immigrants. Would it be in the spirit of the project to start adding in categories for the specific boats that people arrived on, similar to the convict boat categories? Thanks so much. Gillian

About a year ago I created a group for Australian Prime Ministers at relativefinder.org. I linked those already in FamilySearch tree and added the rest with my sources. I just did it for fun, but it may help your subproject. The group contains the names of all the deceased Prime Ministers and is available here - https://www.relativefinder.org/#/groups/46698
