Born in Oklahoma, raised in Kansas and still live there. I have worked in several different fields over the years, including 20 odd years in radio broadcasting as both a disc jockey and news anchor/reporter. I also worked over 20 years in residential construction and remodeling.

I started researching my family tree in 2001 but did not get serious about it until 2008. Since then I have learned a great deal about my family and genealogy in general and really enjoy the detective work it takes to overcome the challenges it brings.

You've probably been hard at work adding family members and getting connected to those that are already here. You should have at least a few profiles that you manage now. You've covered a lot of ground the past few weeks. So, this week we're going to look at how to work with your Watchlist: How to Manage Your Watchlist

We are also going to give you just a few more tools that can take you even deeper into the WikiTree forest without getting lost: How to Dig a Little Deeper

As always, your questions are welcome!

Hey Jerry,

Keep on digging and networking! I have so many irons in the fire right now, I can't seem to focus on anything. I'll drop back in one of these times.

You've been here for three weeks now! We hope you're profiles are starting to come together and that you've enjoyed getting to know all of us a little better. You're probably getting a good feel for the collaborative nature of WikiTree by now. We know that collaboration isn't always easy. So, we've put together a few pointers that can make working in this type of environment a little easier: How to be a Successful WikiTreer. As always, your questions are welcome!

Hey Jerry. What an interesting live you have! I have been in construction with my family most of my life , I like listening to the radio and I have bunches of ancestry mysteries to figure out.

I just did a one to one gedmatch and had a few segment matches. my gedmatch # is A921207. I look forward to some correspondence!

Welcome! We are glad you are here!  Please let Kitty Smith know if you are interested in joining our DNA Project or our FTDNA Project.

If you have not done so, set your Followed preferences to include DNA.

It's not hard to add DNA test information to profiles on WikiTree, just make sure you add the tests to the actual test participant's profile & set the Privacy to ‘private w/ public biography & family tree’ to show the tester's part of our tree. For help see  How to DNA on WikiTree

We also encourage you to join our Google+ Community for DNA discussions, questions & new information.

You are now a confirmed member, and you can get started adding your family members. As we've said, WikiTree is quite different from other genealogy sites. So, we've put together a guided tour to help you learn how to use it. Your first stop is How to Start Climbing Our Tree.

Tomorrow, you'll hear from a Mentor who will check in to see how you're doing and answer any questions you might have.

Next week, you'll get another message with your next stop on the guided tour.

You can also meet some of our members by joining in the fun with our Question of the Week in the G2G forum:  Have you found any unusual occupations in your family tree?
