My name is Marion Rego Lutchmaya. Was born in India. I have been married for 40 years and have five children. The family tree has always fascinated me. Some years ago I attempted to do my husband"s family tree and with help from a few relatives it was accomplished. Though a family tree is never really complete because babies are being born, others are passing away and so the cycle of life goes on and so does the tree. This time I hope many will collaborate and we can take great joy in pooling in our resources and all can appreciate the joint effort.

Now that you have had a little time to try our site, there are a few more features you may find useful:
For instance, ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards; including some tips on writing biographies
Also a friendly reminder about adding sources and references to your profile. Sources are critically important for genealogy and you will be helping future genealogists by listing where the information you've added came from. This page describes different kinds of sources: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Sources
If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

A warm welcome to the WikiTree family! 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 and it is FREE. 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!
We’re really glad you’re here. More importantly, have fun growing your family tree and connecting to persons with the same interest.
