Welcome, and thanks for joining the Magna Carta project! Check out the project page for info on how we work & go to Magna Carta Base Camp to get started.

Give me a holler if you have any questions, or you can post in G2G (Magna_Carta).

There is also a Google Group for the project that is tied to WikiTree-36 (the project account). I can send you an invitation to the group if you'll send me a private message (that will give me your e-mail address, which I need in order to send the invite).

Cheers, Liz

Christopher, I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Participation in a project is strongly encouraged for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles. You appear to have several interests. Why don't you stop by the Project List ( to see how you can participate? Let me know if you need help with anything. We are glad to have you on board!

How's everything going?

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.

Thanks for volunteering, Christopher! You are now a confirmed member of the WikiTree community.

As you add family profiles, you can use the green tabs near the top of each profile to find out what info will be visible to others - just toggle between private and public views.

If you need help, ask a question in our G2G forum: Most WikiTree members are eager to offer guidance to a fellow genealogist. If you need additional help using WikiTree, our Mentors Project is a great group of volunteers who will be glad to assist you.

Hi Christopher,

Welcome to the WikiTree family! The initial email from us has useful links that will get you started.

WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all work together as one collaborative team. (It still amazes me to create a profile, include what little I know about an ancestor, then get a message that a new cousin has added details that I never had a clue about!)

When you confirm your email address, you have an option to volunteer to add information to WikiTree. If you do, you'll be asked to add tags to your profile. (Tags are surnames, locations, concepts, etc. that you'd like to track.)

A greeter will then confirm your membership, and you'll be on your way!


P.S. I'm always happy to answer questions.

Queen Victoria Alexander is 25 degrees from Robin Helstrom, 23 degrees from Katy Jurado and 22 degrees from Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
