My Millers are from the Colbert, Franklin and Lauderdale County, Alabama area, a few counties north of Cullman and Jefferson Counties. I don't have a Bertha Ella Miller in my database, but will let you know if I do find a connection.

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.

As always, your questions are welcome!


Hi again,

You may have been hard at work adding family members and getting connected to those that are already here. You probably have at least a few profiles that you manage now. So, this week we're going to look at how to work with your Watchlist: How to Manage Your Watchlist.

Have questions? We want to help! Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.

Hi Billy,

I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Here at WikiTree we like to have our members involved with others; collaboration is key! Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Why don't you stop by the United States History Project, (currently led/coordinated by Alison Andrus to see how you can participate? I'll let the leaders know you are interested!

You might be interested in one of the other Projects that can be found here.

Let me know if you need help with anything. We are glad to have you on board!

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!
