Thanks for upgrading, Gary. You are all set to collaborate with our members now. I hope you discover as much about your family as I have about mine over the last several years.

Check out the How-to Guide for some quick tips on working with both the Wiki pages and our other members. There is some great information in those pages.

One of our mentors created a tutorial for the GEDCOMpare process that I found very helpful. I hope that you will too.

Thank you for adding your DNA Test to your profile on WikiTree. Getting Started with DNA will tell you more about how DNA kits are used on WikiTree.

DNA at WikiTree provides a visual way for you to find others who have tested and have the potential of having common ancestors. To get the best results, you need to start with yourself and add sourced profiles for your ancestors until you can connect to existing profiles in WikiTree. 24 hours later, your test will have populated on the profiles of your ancestors and their descendants, where others with potential matches may also appear.

If you have questions about how WikiTree works, let me know. You can use the "reply" link under this comment or click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.
