Followed Tags
Cathy is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
Seemingly an unusual surname, but have also seen it spelled Altrope, Altrup and Altrip. My ancestors with this surname are congregated in Huntingdonshire, England. Anyone else looking at this surname?
My paternal grandmother's maiden name. Her father came from The Netherlands to the U.S. I would love to see sourced ancestry (I don't speak Dutch!)
2 GG and an additional 7 2GG born in England
from Huntingdonshire and Bedfordshire
from North Devon, England
I have a lot of UK DNA! I'd be happy to help with UK projects.

Hi Cathy

We sent you a message about a week ago about the England Project but have not yet heard back from you. If we don't hear from you by this time next week we'll assume you no longer wish to be in the project.

Many thanks,

Susie, Gillian, Wendy and Amy

Hi Cathy

On behalf of the England Project Leaders we're carrying out a check-in to see how all the members are doing and taking the opportunity to thank you for all your hard work over the past six months. We have been so impressed with the way everyone has rallied together and gone the extra mile to make this one of the most dedicated, productive and friendly communities on WikiTree. What are you enjoying most about being in the project? What would you like to see improved or changed? Would you like to continue in the project moving forwards?

We're looking forward to hearing back from you,

Susie, Gillian, Wendy and Amy

Hi there!

I'm a WikiTree mentor checking in to say hello.

Any issues or concerns regarding Wikitree? Confused about formatting or merges? Wondering how to do something?

If so, I can probably help. Please feel free to contact me anytime via my profile page.

You've been a member for about a week so I thought I would check in to see how it's going. Have the How-Tos been helpful or left you with questions? Most of us have questions after all that information!

I want to help! Click my name, send me a private message or ask in the comment section of my page. Sometimes links don't work in emails. If that's happened to you, check the public comments on your profile. The links will work from there.

PS To find reliable sources for your profiles, go to the Family Tree & Tools tab; select Genealogy Research and scroll down near the bottom of that list and select Research with RootsSearch. There are over 20 websites to access from there.

Hi Cathy,

Thanks for volunteering! You are now a full member of the WikiTree community, and can start adding your family. Let me know if you have any questions.

Since WikiTree is different from other genealogy sites, we have a guided tour for new members at New Member How-To. Feel free to work through the How-Tos at your own pace.

Once you add profiles to WikiTree they become searchable and in my experience persons interested in these profiles will contact you and may provide further information to expand your family tree.

Great to have you on board, enjoy, and good luck growing your branches.

Ludwig :)

Hello Cathy,

To Volunteer just add any surnames of interest into Tags so that you have one tag for each surname and location. By doing that, when you are confirmed as a full member you can then click on those tags, and you'll be taken to a page where you'll see other genealogists who are also following those surnames and locations. I really encourage you to explore the connections it helps you make. :-) Don't forget to Check the Volunteer Box. The button to click is at the bottom of the page and says Add tags and Volunteer. It is rectangular.

When you have done that one of our Greeters will confirm you as a full member so that you can Edit your Profile and enter information into WikiTree.


PS If you encounter a problem let me know so that I can help.
