This week we have your last stop on the guided tour. Hopefully, you're feeling like a WikiTree pro! If not, you can always revisit the tour stops via the comment boxes on the right side of your profile.
You've covered a lot of ground the past few weeks. Today, we want to give you just a few more tools that can take you even deeper into the WikiTree forest without getting lost: How to Dig a Little Deeper.
Please do not hesitate to ask questions! If the above link does not work from your email, please go to your profile in the public comments and it will work from there.
Thanks, WikiMesssenger Cindy

You may have been hard at work adding family members and getting connected to those that are already here. You probably have at least a few profiles that you manage. This week we want to show you How to Manage Your Watchlist.

You're getting a good feel for the collaborative nature of WikiTree by now and collaboration isn't always easy. So, we've put together a few pointers that can make working in this type of environment a little easier: How to be a Successful WikiTreer.

PS-Good work so far! Have you noticed on ancestor profiles on bottom right is "Research" where you can get sources and more information? Give it a try!

It's time for your next stop on the guided tour! This week, we'd like to show you How to Join in the Community. There's no shortage of opportunities to get involved through social media, our forum, and projects.
Be sure to check out the One Name Studies Project to see if anyone has started a project for one of the surnames in your family. Don't see one? Follow the instructions for starting your own!
Please ask me if you have questions. :-)

You've been here a week now, and we hope you enjoyed your first stop on your guided tour of WikiTree and were able to make good use of the things you learned.
Our next stop will give you some pointers on how to make your profiles stand out: How to Make the Most of a Profile.
As always, your questions are welcome! Check out our g2g forum at: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/

Thank you for self-certifying for the Pre-1700 badge! Participation in a project is strongly encouraged for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles.
It looks like United Kingdom Project would be a good fit with the tag you entered. Having the tag United_Kingdom will help you get updates about activity for that project.
Do you have any questions? Let me know. I'm happy to help! :-)

Welcome to this wonderful site ! I'm a member of the Mentor project, and I just wanted to check in and see how things are going. Hope you had lots of fun reading "How to Start Climbing Our Tree". I would be happy to answer any relevant questions you have, please feel free to ask!

You may be interested in our WikiTree Adoption Angels Project.
You can also use the Help menu in the upper right corner of every page to get to the G2G Forum to ask questions about how to use WikiTree in your adoption search, or find some basic adoption search help here.
By adding your branches to our shared tree, there may be an opportunity for someone to find you, AND adding your branches and working to source and confirm that information will get you closer to the end of your search.

You are now a confirmed member, and you can get started adding your family members. As we've said, WikiTree is quite different from other genealogy sites. So, we've put together a guided tour to help you learn how to use it. Your first stop is How to Start Climbing Our Tree.
Tomorrow, you'll hear from a Mentor who will check in to see how you're doing and answer any questions you might have.
Next week, you'll get another message with your next stop on the guided tour.
You can also meet some of our members by joining in the fun with our Question of the Week in the G2G forum: Have you found any ancestors who participated in the American Revolution?
See you, Cindy

Welcome to WikiTree! Our goal is one big tree. We all work as a team to make this happen.
It doesn't matter if you have a lot of ancestors to add or just a few, getting started is easy! Add your personal tags, family surnames or topics that might interest you with a short description below them. Tags are very important and will help you connect with others about people, projects, etc. Then click the volunteer button below, and that's all you need to do.
Once you volunteer, one of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way! I am looking forward to seeing you on Wiki Tree. I hope we have some tags in common.
Welcome to the family! We’re really glad you’re here.
