Thank you for volunteering. You are now a full member of WikiTree.

Start with the New Member How-To Pages - they are really useful as you add profiles and learn your way around: 

Let me know if you require assistance. I am happy to help. After adding my own family and ancestors I have found many cousins and distant ancestors here on WikiTree.

Hi Smitty, Thank you for the message!

It is best to add your family and ancestors starting with you, spouse, children, siblings, your parents, grandparents and so on. I recommend you source each profile using the style and standard set by WikiTree as you add each profile. It is very hard to go back and source a lot of profiles if added at once. You will find the Help Index under the drop-down menu at the right top of all profiles.

Thank you, David ~ WikiTree Greeter
