I became interested in the family search when I was in High School and have spent many years researching the family. I still have a few that I'm not able to connect with but with the DNA technology I am still hopeful to find my way back. My biggest goal however is to ensure my tree is correct and strive for that. I love being able to help others break through there obstacles, and it excites me to find new information on my family! Especially pictures! Oh how I love old pictures. I tend to work more on the profiles of those that I do not know than I do the ones already discovered. I'm an addict and will be the first to admit it. It's nothing for me to pull an all nighter when I believe to be on the trail.
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Ancestry DNA.

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.
