Hello Velma,

I noticed you have a GEDCOM, you will find answers and help here: GEDCOM Help

It is strongly recommended by many volunteers here that you get to know Wikitree by adding a number of profiles manually. And many of us equally recommend against gedcom uploads because of the time it takes afterwards to clean up the resulting profiles. What many of us do is focus on our immediate and direct line ancestors first.

Hi Velma,

Welcome to WikiTree! The email we just sent has helpful links to get you started.

WikiTree is different than other genealogy websites because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we share ancestors and work together as a BIG collaborative team!

You’ve confirmed your e-mail address, so you'll see a form on your Navigation Home Page that invites you to volunteer to become a full member and to help document our collective family history. Use the Tags and comments to tell us about your genealogical interests.

When you volunteer, one of our Greeters will confirm your membership. Then you'll be able to add your family to the tree!

We're really glad you're here!
