- (Work in progress)
- This list is for profiles (whether of relation or not) which use lots of citations, great narrative, and/or impressive technical style.
- (Work in progress)
- A Haviland profile might be identified as "unconnected" by the WikiTree engine for one or more overlapping reasons:
- It might be a duped profile bearing the Haviland name, often imported from a GEDCOM for another family, that needs to be merged into one of our profiles or we have not yet built a "ladder" or profiles to connect it one of our known families.
- It might be an unknown Haviland! WikiTree is truly the best chance these unknown Havilands have of being "found." The more people who use WIkiTree the greater the chances of solving mysteries, so recruit!
- There may be other technical reasons why it's not connected. I have noticed that it takes a day or two for new profiles to index themselves into the "connected" status, so if it appears to be connected (has the right father) but it's still appearing in this list, wait for a week and see if it still appears.
- Here is where you can find the current lists of unconnected Havilands and de Havillands, accounting for variant spellings of the surname:
- Unconnected Open Haviland Profiles on WikiTree
- Unconnected Open de Havilland Profiles on WikiTree
- Unconnected Open de Haviland Profiles on WikiTree Note: This is an uncommon and usually incorrect spelling of the surname - it's usually "de Havilland." When spelled like "de Haviland" it is less likely spelled that way in the source record and more likely a transcription error on the part of the researcher. We should try to standardize this in WikiTree.)

Points have to do with the G2G Forum, wherein you get rewarded based on your dialogs with other people, and answering helpful questions.

- Person Profile Merging Tool: This is for merging Person Profiles.
- Free-Space Profile Merging Tool: This is for merging Free Space Profiles (not Person profiles).
- Project Index: Join an official project!
- Free-Space Projects: Create your own custom project! (The difference between creating a Free-Space Profile for your project and creating a Free-Space Project do not seem substantial.)

- How to Use WikiTree
- Biographies: Styling the biography is important. It needs to be organized in such a way as to make it readable, with as many supporting citations as can be found. This help page describes how the WikiTree styling codes work. Since different people style profiles in different ways (some great, some not), you will not find that the style you love to use is going to be well received by everyone who has interest in a profile. While everyone with the right permissions is allowed to make bio changes to any public profile, be mindful of who the profile manager is and consider letting them take the lead, or else if they are only a profile manager because of a GEDCOM import but the profile is in your direct ancestry, try to be friendly and suggestive with changes by opening a respectful dialog with them. (Also see Recommended Tags, Editing Tips, Advanced Formatting, and Quotations.)
- Name Fields: How to use the Name Fields properly. (Also see Name Fields for European Aristocrats, such as nobility.)
- Photos FAQ
- Ownership and Control: A little about Profile Managers and their permissions.
- Categorization: Categories create automatic indexes of profiles. Whenever a profile uses the right code, it creates a link from the profile to the index, and the index automatically creates a link back to that profile. It's pretty cool!
- DNA Confirmation
- HTML Color Codes
- Unresponsive Profile Managers: There are some functions you cannot perform on certain profiles without the help of its Profile Manager. If you reach out and the Profile Manager doesn't respond to you, this page describes next steps.
- Communication: This page is about WikiTree's recommendations in interacting with other individuals when collaborating on a profile. My personal recommendation is to be bold about fixing obvious problems, be thorough in explaining why a profile's original facts are probably wrong (use citations as much as possible to back yourself up, and where that is lacking, use logic such as "so-and-so can't have a grandfather who is 20 years old," and be gentle and perhaps proactively communicating when simply making stylistic (presentation) changes that aren't really changing the facts, especially if it's already looking fine but you are trying to give it continuity with the rest of your lineage of profiles. And if you get upset at the person, Don't WikiTree While Angry! (Also see Courtesy.)
- Certainty: Here's a great page about how to create or edit profiles with uncertain "facts."
- Collaborative Profile of the Week
- Leaders are users who are promoted into the highest position on WikiTree, able to conduct activities that impact WikiTree functions, permissions and rules.
