Just checking in with a few quick tips:
Free Space pages are wiki pages for supplementing your family history. They can be used to profile anything of significance such as a special pet, a meaningful event, a school you attended, a family heirloom… They’re “anything pages.”
Lastly, sometimes you’ll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.
If you have any questions, please ask!

You are now a confirmed member of WikiTree! Thank you for volunteering.
There are great digital sources out there that are of no cost to verify any information in your family heritage. One I use is called familysearch.org.
Have fun and ask for help if you need it! WikiTree members are always eager to offer guidance to a fellow genealogist.
If you need additional help, our Mentors Project is a friendly bunch of volunteers who will be glad to assist you with WikiTree-specific problems.
See you in the branches and Welcome to WikiTree!!

Welcome to WikiTree! The initial email from us has helpful links that will get you started on WikiTree, which is not like any genealogy site you’ve ever used.
WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all work together as a BIG collaborative team!
What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree? When you confirm your email address, you’ll see a Volunteer option on your profile page. Click that and leave us a short message here on your profile about your genealogical interests. A Greeters Project volunteer will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way!
Welcome to the family! We’re really glad you’re here.
