Just checking in with a few quick tips:
Free Space pages are wiki pages for supplementing your family history. They can be used to profile anything of significance such as a special pet, a meaningful event, a school you attended, a family heirloom .... They're "anything pages".
Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.
If you have any questions, please ask!

I manage Mary E Hutchison's profile, not because of any expertise, but simply because I added her to WikiTree. I only know of her from the recollections of my father & grandmother who knew about her. I have added you to her trusted list.
When I joined WikiTree, I made the decision to add any people not already represented here, even when what I added lacked documentation. It was (and is) my hope that others, knowing more than I, and coming across these profiles, would improve them.
To me, that is the beauty of this site — nobody owns a profile; but trusted members can improve a profile.
You bring a lot of knowledge and expertise, and WikiTree will gain from that -- so too will I.
Again, welcome, and thank you for making contact,

I see a new GEDCOM badge. Here's a link to a great step-by-step of the process including screenshots that you might find helpful.
Help pages give lots of info about the process, best to start with 'Before you import a GEDCOM'.
If you have brick walls, collaboration might help bust through. WikiTree has one profile for each person, so the further back you go in your ancestry, the more likely cousins will find you and help out. ANY Wiki Genealogist can edit "Open" profiles (over 200 years old).

How are you doing? Hope you're enjoying our site.
Our primary vision is to build a collaborative tree so please make sure to look for duplicates on WikiTree before adding a profile. Having dates and locations attached to every person assists in our mission as well.
Feel free to check out How To Use WikiTree. It's a great step-by-step guide.
And of course, I'm here to help in any way I’m able. Just ask!
