This week we have your last stop on the guided tour. Hopefully, you're feeling like a WikiTree pro! If not, you can always revisit the tour stops via the comment boxes on the right side of your profile.
You've covered a lot of ground the past few weeks. Today, we want to give you just a few more tools that can take you even deeper into the WikiTree forest without getting lost: How to Dig a Little Deeper.
Please do not hesitate to ask questions! If the above link does not work from your email, please go to your profile in the public comments and it will work from there.
Thanks, WikiMesssenger Cindy

You may have been hard at work getting connected to family members who are already here and adding those who were missing. You probably have at least a few profiles that you manage now.
There's a fast and easy way to access those profiles using the Watchlist. So, this week we're going to look at How to Manage Your Watchlist.
Questions? Just ask me in the comment section of my page. We want to help!

You've been here for several weeks now! We hope your profiles are starting to come together and that you've enjoyed getting to know us a little better.
You're probably getting a good feel for the collaborative nature of WikiTree by now. We know that collaboration isn't always easy. So, we've put together a few pointers that can make working in this type of environment a little easier: How to be a Successful WikiTreer.
Don’t hesitate to ask questions as that is the only way we gain knowledge!
Thanks, WikiMessenger Cindy
PS Good work so far! Have you noticed on your ancestor profiles on the bottom right is "Research" where you can get sources and more information? Give it a try sometime!

It's time for your next stop on the guided tour!
This week, we'd like to show you How to Join in the Community. There's no shortage of opportunities to get involved through social media, our forum, and projects.
Be sure to check out the One Name Studies Project to see if anyone has started a project for one of the surnames in your family. Don't see one? Follow the instructions for starting your own!
Please let me know if you have questions. :-)

Since WikiTree is different from other sites, we have a guided tour to help members learn their way around. The first stop is How to Start Climbing Our Tree.
I'm happy to answer questions. Tomorrow, another mentor will check by to see if you need help, and we'll post weekly messages after that.
To meet other WikiTreers, check out our G2G forum and this week's Question of the Week: Have you proven noble connections from your family lore?

Welcome to the WikiTree family!
WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person. The Honor Code allows us to work together on one BIG tree.
By now, you should have received an email with links to get you started. When you confirm your email address, you'll have the option to volunteer to add information to WikiTree. Volunteers begin by adding tags for their own profiles; tags allow them to keep up with new information on surnames, locations, concepts, etc.
If you would like to volunteer, a greeter can confirm your membership, and then you'll be on your way!
P.S. I'm always happy to answer questions.
