Hi Tanya,

Just wanted to check in and make sure you had the link to your source-a-thon team's thread. Here we are: Team Tennessee Thread. To get started, all you need to do is post an *answer* (not comment) to the original post, and then keep a running numbered list of the profiles you are sourcing. You can edit that same comment again and again, adding to it each time. If you need help, check out our tutorial here, which has screen shots and step-by-step instructions.

Have fun, and let me know if you need any help. As your team Captain, I'm here for whatever you need! Hope to see you posting soon! Have a great day! - Summer

Hi Tanya,

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.

Hello Tanya,

You are now a confirmed member of WikiTree! Thank you for volunteering.

Have fun and ask for help if you need it! WikiTree members are always eager to offer guidance to a fellow genealogist.

Hi, Tanya

Welcome to WikiTree! The initial email from us has helpful links that will get you started on WikiTree, which is not like any genealogy site you’ve ever used.

WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all 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 have an opportunity to volunteer and tell us about your genealogical interests.

Once you volunteer, one of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way!

Welcome to the family! We’re really glad you’re here. Marshall
