I have been interested in family history since my mother was sharing her family with me and a friend at church led a genealogy interest group. It became something I enjoyed working on with my mother. Since so much had been done on her side, I've worked more on my father's side of the tree. Since they have both now passed away, it helps me to feel close to them to learn more about family they knew or family who came before them.
I hope my two sons will eventually be interested in family history also!

You don't have to do anything with the GEDCOM if you don't wish to. It'll delete after 60 days. :-)

WikiTree is quite different from other genealogy sites. So, we've put together a guided tour to help you learn how to make your way around more easily.
Next week you'll hear from a Member who will check in to see how you're doing and answer any questions you might have.
