My advice to new genealogists is to take it slow. Start with yourself and work backwards, adding your family members one at a time and connecting to existing lines when you find them. Put in what you know and ask questions when you get stuck. We have a community and lots of resources to help!
Need help using WikiTree? Just ask!
Above all, have FUN! :)

Feel very welcome to WikiTree! I hope you will like it here as much as I do. 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! Feel free to explore WikiTree, and we hope you will help us to grow our BIG three!]
When you confirm your email address, you’ll have an opportunity to volunteer and tell us about your genealogical interests at the tags (green boxes). 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.
