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.

Please do not hesitate to ask questions! If the above link does not work from your email, please go to your profile in the public comments and it will work from there.

Thanks, WikiMesssenger Cindy


Thank you for self-certifying for the Pre-1700 badge! Participation in a project is strongly encouraged for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles. It looks like the South African Roots Project would be a good fit with the tag you entered.

Do you have any questions? Let me know. I'm happy to help! :-)

Hi Antoinette, me again. You are doing excellent sourcing, only I have asked someone from the South African Roots project to guide you with the adding and editing of information. Specific facts must be supported by specific sources; there is a methodology to both editing already existing profiles in this project as well adding them. Validation is a proces. See this link for information on that. As you see not all of the profiles are equally well developed or even brought under the umbrella of the COGH project.

I'll leave you now in the capable hands of others. Thanks for joining and especially thanks for you energetic enthousiasm!

Hi Antoinette, I removed the info you added to the profile of Van_Tonderen-6 because merely adding masses of information does not validate a profile.

Hi Antoinette, a warm welcome to WikiTree. I see that you have been busy already working away in WikiTree with creating profiles. I merged your duplicate of Els-32. Before you proceed any further into the 18th century profiles, be aware that many of our communal ancestor profiles have already been created.

First of all a few handy links to get you started:

  1. Getting Started
  2. Adding to WikiTree.
  3. Pre-1700 Quiz (self-certifying in order to understand better how to de pre-1700 genealogical work on WikiTree)
  4. What are duplicates? Why should and how can they be avoided?
  5. G2G Help - for any questions you may have ....

Perhaps you would like to join the South African Roots Project first to learn a bit how everything works here at WikiTree? We are working on help pages for everyone can learn more about WikiTree and how everything works around here.

Hi there!

You may have been hard at work getting connected to family members who are already here and adding those who were missing. You probably have at least a few profiles that you manage now. There's a fast and easy way to access those profiles using the Watchlist. So, this week we're going to look at How to Manage Your Watchlist. Please let one of us know if you have questions! Just click my name above the comment, then ask in the comment section of my page. We want to help!

Antoinette --

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 all of 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.

As always, your questions are welcome!


Hi Antoinette,

Welcome to WikiTree

It's time for your next stop on the guided tour!

This week, we'd like to show you How to Join in the Community. There's no shortage of opportunities to get involved through social media, our forum, and projects.

Be sure to check out the One Name Studies Project to see if anyone has started a project for one of the surnames in your family. Don't see one? Follow the instructions for starting your own!

Look at the list of active projects to see if one fits your interests or research needs.

Please let me know if you have questions. :-)
