"Welcome to WikiTree Series: An Introduction to WikiTree" on YouTube.
We know. WikiTree is a bit complicated!
After you spend some time here you'll probably appreciate our special community and the wide array of powerful features that are all free. But they're overwhelming when you're new.
The most important thing to know: WikiTree is all about genealogy collaboration.
All member levels are free. WikiTree is paid for with advertisements.
Do you have an account?
If you just arrived, create a Guest account.
These accounts are for everyone with an interest in family history. There's no obligation to do anything and you can delete your account at any time.
Do you want to communicate with cousins?
If you're interested in family history or genealogy and you want to communicate with others about it here on WikiTree, upgrade to the Family Member level.
Do you want to collaborate on WikiTree?
Here's the big question. To answer it, you have to read our Honor Code. These nine points are the basic rules that enable our collaboration to be fun and productive.
Do you have a GEDCOM?
This is the fastest way to see if any of your ancestors are already on WikiTree. You'll get a GEDCompare report with likely matches.
