Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.
Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or special event. Read the goals and tasks of the project and join if it is a good fit.
Let me know if you have trouble finding projects which fit your focus. Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.

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.

Have fun and ask for help if you need it! WikiTree members are always eager to offer guidance to a fellow genealogist.
If you need additional help, our Mentors Project is a friendly bunch of volunteers who will be glad to assist you with WikiTree-specific problems.
Check out our Question of the Week: We've all got one - who's YOUR favorite ancestor and why?
See you in the branches

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.
