I stumbled across wikitree and began to read about how the site came into being and about their philosophy on genealogy. It seemed like just what I was looking for and to be very much in line with my own ideas for documenting and sharing genealogy. For this reason I decided to create my own profile and begin to enter my family tree one person at a time. Now I am here trying to learn the ins and outs of wikitree so that I can contribute to the world wide database and to try and connect to other family trees. Hopefully this will lead to new discoveries and further my research.

Over the past several months I have discovered that wikitree has so many facets to explore. There are numerous ongoing projects designed to connect profiles to significant historical events. The DNA project is amazing and has come so far since I began on wikitree. There are so many tools designed to connect profiles and improve your research methods. I have found it is perfect to use in concert with my own genealogy websites by linking to the profile pages of my ancestors. It is also a great way to connect on social media by using the facebook, google+ and twitter links. Not to mention the badges you receive for all your hard work. No other genealogy website recognizes you for your contributions.

I have recently volunteered as a Mentor so that I can take my experience to the next level by helping new users explore their own interests. This will give me the opportunity to help new users at all levels of genealogy expertise to learn the benefits of using wikitree as we grow our One World Tree.

Hello George,

It's Carl Moss. Need you to confirm my volunteering so I can add vital info that all John Moss, born 1796 in Bedford, PA., family members , have been searching for for years! John and his siblings were left in America with no known parents names available. I have those names!!! Thanks!

My Berry linage came to MO abt 1900 from Barboursville, KY, TN & VA, possibly from David Berry, b 1560, Dublin, Ireland.

Would like to investigate mutual linage.

I have saved the GEDCOM file from Ancestry. I want to move it to here so I can continue to work on it. Will it be public? don't want to share anything that I have not confirmed. I have ancestors back to 900's AD. I will be glad to share with others but I want to choose what to share and those to share with.

Hi Berry,

Thanks for your offer of help. I am tied up this week but hope to get stuck in to this site soon and may need some guidance then. Feels like a welcoming and useful community so far. David

I do not know how to upload a GEDCOM from Legacy Family Tree on here. If it is not too hard to do as I am not computer savy, I would be glad to post it here.

Hi Berry,

I'm adopted. Since I'm using genetic information, I will be searching my biological family. Should I be using my birthname? I haven't used that since I was a baby. Also, is there a way to have two trees to search both biological and adoptive?

Hi Berry,

Thanks for your post. Yes I do have Royal ancestors but was concentrating on getting a simple Gedcom of recent ancestors uploaded as a start. I prepared a gedcom of 69 ancestors but have noted the comments about tidying up Gedcom files which has given me pause for thought. I use Ancestry.com but have not uploaded my tree there. I was considering doing so and then using their facility to easily attach citations to e.g. census returns (which saves a lot of typing). I could then export that as a Gedcom and upload it. Will be a big saving in time and much better quality of information uploaded. I'm not sure whether omitting to identify recent ancestors now will stop me getting potential DNA matches on the DNA test I have submitted.
