Just checking in with a few quick tips:
Looking to make more connections or find more information about an ancestor but not sure how to do that? Try categorizing your profiles.
If you come across an unresponsive manager, we have a process for those unfortunate situations.
If you have any questions, please ask!!

I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in?
Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Let me know.
I can help you figure out if there's a project and introduce you to the project leaders.

Welcome to WikiTree! This initial email from us has helpful links that will get you started on WikiTree, which is not like any genealogy site you’ve ever used.
WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all work together as a BIG collaborative team!
What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree? When you confirm your email address, you’ll see a Volunteer option on your profile page. Click that and leave us a short message about your genealogical interests. A Greeters Project volunteer will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way!
Welcome to the family! We’re really glad you’re here.
