WikiTree Projects often use GoogleGroups for two separate purposes:

  • Project Discussion - for discussing the project goals and tasks
  • Profile Alerts - for alerting interested parties regarding specific profiles under the care of the Project

Project Discussion

The "How to Join the Project" instructions at the top of Project pages include a link to the GoogleGroup, if used:

  • The Project's GoogleGroup page will include a link to contact the owner
  • Some Projects provide a link to apply for membership
In either case, whether applying or contacting the owner, include your Wiki ID (Surname-#) and the email address you would like to use if different from the one you are currently using.

To be a member of a GoogleGroup, you need a Google account. If you already have a Gmail address, a Google account was created for you at the time of registration. Instructions for joining a Google group can be found here:
This page includes instructions for:

  • ​Changing your display name
  • Adjusting your email delivery settings
  • Joining without a gmail address​
Be sure to use a valid email address, not a throw away address, because you will receive an email with a confirmation link
As with WikiTree, we like to know who we are corresponding with. Please consider setting your display name to the name you use on WikiTree.
Review your Email Delivery preferences. Only use the "no mail" setting if you plan to check the Quakers Project GoogleGroup home page regularly.

Being a member of a project involves active participation. If you no longer want to read messages about the project, please contact the Project Leaders and ask to be removed from the Project.
