Hey Ruth,

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page. Mags, WikiTree Mentor

Hi Ruth,

Happy to meet a cousin and another descendant of pioneers! Six of my ancestors came over the Oregon Trail in 1852/1860.

We have several projects going on here with early Colonial pioneers: Mayflower, Gateway Ancestors, and the Puritan Great Migration, plus other specialties such as Huguenots and New Netherlands.

I wish you well in discovering and connecting to many in your tree.

I noticed you uploaded a GEDCOM. Here's a link to a great step-by-step of the process including screenshots that you might find helpful.

The help pages give lots of information about the process, best to start with 'Before you import a GEDCOM'.

Also, I see where you have uploaded your DNA for comparison. Did you know we have a Project for DNA where a lot of great new things are happening? It has information listed that might be of interest to you, and feel free to contact any of the members if you would like additional details.

Hi Ruth,

You are now a member of the WikiTree Community. Please note we are trying to build one Collaborative Tree which means one profile per person. It is important to ensure no duplicates are entered as you add any Profiles to WikiTree.

If you need any help, see the help section from the menu, top left, or visit the G2G forum, you might want to check out the introductory WikiTree video that a member created.

Our Mentor Team are a friendly bunch of volunteers who will be glad to help you with specific problems if you have any.

Good luck growing your branches, and thanks for offering to help with our shared tree :)
