Thanks, Mindy, for reaching out recently. There's a lot going on here at wikitree! I have my families tree that I've been working on stored at ancestry.com and slowly trying to translate it here. I started with a gedcom upload and comparison but found that very cumbersome. I never realized this before but ancestry.com is very focused on fast, large chunks of tree addition. They don't seem all that interested in sources which makes it easy to expand without stopping to think things through! Wikitree is much more focused on sources and so, it seems to take a serious effort to be sure everything fits appropriately (which is a good thing!)

I don't have any particular questions yet but I'd love to get into the forums, I'm just not sure where to start there! Any suggestions? Thanks!
