Hello Ruth,

While visiting your profile, I noticed you have been a member of Wikitree for over a month, received messages from Greeters and Mentors.

I also noticed the small amount of contributions to your family tree.

Did you experiment navigation problems or ancestors search difficulties ? Do you need help ?

Would be glad to help in any way .

Wish you a great journey on Wikitree.

Hi ,

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.

How are you? I'm Guy, a WikiTree Mentor. Hope you're enjoying our site.

How To Use WikiTree is a good starting point, and the Help Index is an important place to find out how to do most tasks.

If you have pre-1700's ancestors to add please read our Pre-1700 profiles info. Do you have Royal Ancestors? Rather than create duplicate profiles for them, please contact the EuroAristo Project to discuss connecting your family line to their profiles.

And I'm here to help too, just ask!

Hi Ruth, You are now a member of the WikiTree Community - We are building One Collaborative Tree, with just one profile per person, so it is important to ensure no duplicates are entered as you add Profiles to WikiTree.

If you have pre-1700's ancestors to add, please read our Pre-1700 profiles info. Please, be sure to include a list of the sources used, on each profile you add.

If you need any help getting started check out the Help Index or the G2G forum - Good luck growing your branches, Patt

Hi, found this from a link on one of the Facebook genealogy groups I follow and decided to have a look. sounds like a wonderful project and I can't wait t organise myself to upload my GEDCOM and DNA test. I am also on Ancestry and recently did my DNA through them.

I have read your mission and the nine simple rules and absolutely agree with them and to abide by them. They encapsulate my own beliefs anyway, and I hope to be able to contribute in a positive and meaningful way to this community. I am happy to share my knowledge and family history in the hope of discovering connections and helping to find new and interesting paths to follow. sincerely, Ruth
