Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.
Not sure what to include in a profile? Check out our Biography Ideas and Styles and Standards help pages.
Looking for a specific person? Try under find and enter the name you are looking for (with dates if you have them).
It is very important to you (and to others) that you include as much bio info about each individual as possible & dont forget the need for sources. You will come to appreciate the need for this background info and sources as you continue with WikiTree.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask. John Beeson WikiTree Mentor
You are now a member of the WikiTree Community. Please note we are trying to build one Collaborative Tree which means one profile per person. It is important to ensure no duplicates are entered as you add any Profiles to WikiTree.
If you need any help getting started check out the Help section,or head over to the G2G forum, you might want to check out the introductory WikiTree video that a member created.
Our Mentor Team are a friendly bunch of volunteers who will be glad to help you with specific problems if you have any.
Good luck growing your branches, and thanks for offering to help with our shared tree :)

TIP: if your ancestor was born over two hundred years ago, there's a very good chance she/he already has a profile on wikitree. Before creating a new profile, use the "search function" up on top to see if your ancestor is already here.
If you are just looking for family or other researchers working on the same names as yours, use the surname search function at the top of the profile page or ask at G2G.
If you would like to enjoy the benefits of being a full member, leave us a message here letting us know that you read Volunteers at WikiTree
