Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!
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.

You've been a member of WikiTree for about a week now so I thought I would check in to see how it's going. We have New Member How-Tos to help you get started. Are they helpful or just leave you with questions?
We want to help! Click my name above, then ask in the comment section of my page.

PS Sometimes links don't work in emails. If that's happened to you, check the public comments on your profile. The links will work from there.

Did you have fun learning your way around WikiTree yesterday?

Thanks for volunteering! You are now a full member of the WikiTree community, and you can start adding your family. Once you sign the Honor Code, you'll be able to fully participate and edit Open profiles, as well.
Since WikiTree is different from other genealogy sites, we have a guided tour to help new members learn their way around. The first stop is How-To #1: How to Start Climbing Our Tree. The How-To's are intended to be visited about once a week, but feel free to work through them at your own pace.
To meet other WikiTreers, check out our G2G forum, including the G2G Question of the Week.

Welcome to WikiTree! The initial email from us has helpful 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!!
What brings you to us? Do you have research you’d like to share? When you confirm your email address, you’ll have an opportunity to volunteer and tell us about your genealogical interests with your tags.
If your not sure about tags, add one for a surname your interested in and then maybe a country or state. Tell us why the tags you chose are important to you. Don't forget to click on the "volunteer" button.
Once you volunteer, one of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way!
Dorothy, Wikitree Greeter.
