Family members:

Hi (Insert Name),

We are so happy you decided to upgrade to the Family Member level.

Please visit our tutorial pages to learn how to use WikiTree: How To Use WikiTree. They will save you time, energy, and frustration as you add your family profiles.

Exploring the site is the best way to learn. One way to do that is to check out the drop-down menus on the top right side of your profile page. Finding a known ancestor and collaborating with the profile manager is another great way to start.

Questions? You can always use the G2G link in the Help Menu to find answers.

Congratulations on certifying to work on pre-1700 profiles! It’s very important to read and understand https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Pre-1700_Profiles. These profiles for deep ancestors are shared by many, and collaborating on them works best if we all follow the guidelines laid out on that page.

Kind regards,

Stephen Davies – WikiTree Greeter

Hi (name) Message for profiles with private information on living persons

At WikiTree, we aim to protect the privacy of all living individuals for their protection and in line with data protection legislation.

WikiTree has excellent privacy controls, but that won’t protect you and your family if you publish your personal information, or the information of your living family members, in your biography, Communications section, or on the profiles of others.

Since WikiTree is a public website, I suggest you remove references to dates, locations, or living individuals from your biography.

For further information, see Privacy and Data Protection.

Many thanks

Hilary ~ WikiTree Greeter

We DO check for underage members. If their age appears as in the 2000s, send a message to the Google Group for an age check. An age check should be titled LEADER: Age check (URL) Include the URL in the body of the message, too.

We also look for spam. If not sure, send a message through the Google Group. If you are sure of it: ­­­When sending a request for a Block & Delete, please send to wikimediators@googlegroups.com and copy wikigreeters@googlegroups.com. In both cases, the Subject line should be "TEAM (Surname or Block & Delete) URL." Anything else could cause the team's email sort routines to not work correctly.

I'll show you how to do this if necessary. If there is ANYTHING that you are not sure of, send it to the Google Group.
