How is it going so far, were the Member How-Tos pages helpful or did they leave you with questions?
Clicking your green tags shows members who follow that tag. Add tags other family surnames, for locations add a tag for US_HISTORY links to all States. The more tags you add the more links to community & research options Information on tags is on page one of the How To pages.
We want to help you learn about the site and the community, hopefully you found the pages and links useful.
Questions click my name & ask in the comment box on my page or post in the G2G Forum (see Help top right of your Profile

Thanks for volunteering! You are now a full member of the WikiTree community, and can start adding your family. Let me know if you have any questions.
Since WikiTree is different from other genealogy sites, we have a guided tour for new members at New Member How-To. Feel free to work through the How-Tos at your own pace.
Once you add profiles to WikiTree they become searchable and in my experience persons interested in these profiles will contact you and may provide further information to expand your family tree.
Great to have you on board, enjoy, and good luck growing your branches.

To Volunteer just add any surnames of interest into Tags so that you have one tag for each surname and location. By doing that, when you are confirmed as a full member you can then click on those tags, and you'll be taken to a page where you'll see other genealogists who are also following those surnames and locations. I really encourage you to explore the connections it helps you make. :-)
Don't forget to Check the Volunteer Box
Also Note There is a button to click at the bottom of the page that says Add tags and Volunteer. It is rectangular.
When you have done that one of our Greeters will confirm you as a full member so that you can Edit your Profile and enter information into WikiTree.
