I am new to this website so I can't do much. All of my work is on the Ancestry Account. My hope is that this site will help me fill in the blanks on that site and confirm or deny info that I have listed on that site. User name on that site is Hefswife. Happy Searching.
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Family Tree DNA.

We’re on week five and 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.
Feel free to message me if you have questions,
Susie - Wikitree Messenger :-)

You may have been hard at work adding family members and getting connected to those that are already here. You probably have at least a few profiles that you manage now.
So, this week we're going to look at how to work with your Watchlist: How to Manage Your Watchlist.
If you haven't signed the Honor Code yet, please stop by to check it out. It's the core of how WikiTree works, and members have more editing privileges after signing it.
As always, your questions are welcome!

You have been here for a while 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.
Have questions? We want to help! Click the name above any of your comments, then ask in the comment section of that volunteer's page.

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!
Please let me know if you have 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, WikiMessenger Cindy

I'm a member of the Mentor project, and I just wanted to check in and see how things are going. Do you have any questions I can help you with?

You are now a confirmed member, and you can get started adding your family members. As we've said, WikiTree is quite different from other genealogy sites. So, we've put together a guided tour to help you learn how to use it. Your first stop is How to Start Climbing Our Tree.
Tomorrow, you'll hear from a Mentor who will check in to see how you're doing and answer any questions you might have.
Next week, you'll get another message with your next stop on the guided tour.
You can also meet some of our members by joining in the fun with our Question of the Week in the G2G forum: Have you found any ancestors who participated in the American Revolution?
See you, Cindy

The email we just sent has helpful links to get you started.
WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we share ancestors and work together as a BIG collaborative team!
What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree?
When you confirm your email address, you’ll be given an opportunity to volunteer to help document our collective family history. Use the Tags and comments to tell us about your genealogical interests.
When you volunteer, one of our Greeters will confirm your membership. Then you'll be able to add your family to the tree!
We're really glad you're here!
