I see you have an interest in Virginia (I saw your Virginia tag) & I'm recruiting for Team Virginia for the Source-a-Thon Oct. 1-3. You haven't heard of it? Go get your race bib here, details about the Source-a-Thon are here, and you can join Team Virginia by posting an Answer (not a comment or reply) to this G2G post - see also the Team Virginia page for helpful hints and links to Virginia sources.

Even if you find a solid source for just one Unsourced profile Oct. 1-3, you'll be helping! There are door prizes too!

Come join the fun :D

Cheers, Liz

You might want to set your Privacy to Private with Public Family Tree. The WikiTree programming needs to see your Family Tree tab to make DNA and other cousin connections for you. Please take a look at my profile where I use Private with Public Biography AND Family Tree to see a list of some of my WikiTree cousin connections and my list of U.S. Presidential cousins.

Hi Greg, I see that you've uploaded a large gedcom to WikiTree, with a lot of people who may already be here ("Suggested Matches"). I recommend that you add your parents manually, then your grandparents, etc., all by hand, not using a gedcom. Then you might add some of their siblings. This would give you an opportunity to work a bit in WikiTree before you have 1,000 or more profiles to work on from your gedcom. When you add a gedcom and some of your people are already here, and you correctly skip them, you end up having to go back and manually reconnect parents and children. If you don't skip them, then you have duplicates that have to be merged. In the long run it's often best to enter people manually. If you're still set on using a gedcom I suggest you limit it to 50 or fewer people.

HI Greg,

A warm welcome to WikiTree, a genealogy site different than any other! You should have received an email from us with helpful links to get started.

Our goal is to have one single profile per person so that we have ONE big family tree and we collaborate together to make that happen.

Each volunteer at WikiTree adds to the collaborative tree at their own pace, there are no minimum requirements for time or entry.

When you volunteer, you indicate your interests by adding tags and comments and then one of our Greeters will confirm your membership.

Please check out our question of the week: What do you think it is, that keeps you hooked into this hobby / obsession?

Welcome to the family!
