Feel very welcome to WikiTree! I hope you will like it here as much as I do.
The initial email from us has helpful links that will get you started on WikiTree, which is not like any other genealogy site.
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!
Feel free to explore. We hope you will help us to grow our BIG tree by volunteering to add your own branches.
When you confirm your email address, you’ll have an opportunity to volunteer and tell us about your genealogical interests. Just fill in the Tags and comments and click the "Save Tag(s) and Volunteer" button. Then one of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership.
