My family tree on has sourced, detailed biographies for about 6,000 family members. I discovered WikiTree in about 2013 and used it to research and improve profiles on my private tree. More recently, I started sharing my information on WikiTree and have been creating new profiles and/or improving existing profiles with information and sources from my private tree. Today, I use WikiTree almost exclusively.

I regularly work to improve the collective family tree with:

I'm involved with several projects but am currently focusing my efforts on the Magna Carta Project along with the European Aristocrats Project and also the Puritan Great Migration Project.

Along with learning about my ancestry, every day I learn something new about using WikiTree. I'm sure that I've make plenty of mistakes. If you run across any of them, please let me know and I'll fix the errors on that profile, along with any other profiles connected to it.

Hello, Traci,

Thank you so much for responding to our check-in for the Miltary and War Project.

The project is sorry to lose you, but we understand that interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to the branches they are currently building. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.
