Hi, my name is Julie Waters and I started researching my family tree in March of 2012.
I became interested in genealogy after watching so many episodes of “Who Do You Think You Are?” on tv over the past few years. A lot of what I find is through piecing together bits of information from various websites as most of my oldest relatives that would be great in helping me have already passed away.
I created a family tree blog/website so that I can update family with how my research is going, what new information I have found, etc. I also created a gallery with family photos and official forms like census pages and military registration cards. familytree.elementfx.com
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Family Tree DNA.

Please review the recommended way to deal with merging multiple duplicates, which should always be directly into the final profile. http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Merging#Merging_multiple_duplicates. Thank you.

To make DNA connections with your cousins, WikiTree needs to see your FamilyTree. You should use the pale yellow Privacy setting on any profiles in your DNA family line so that WikiTree can see the Family Tree tab. (Please set all living children to the Unlisted privacy level.)
As you add your family lines and connect to the big WikiTree, you may find you are related to people you never expected. Use the Relationship calculator to see if you are related to me, Cooper-1 with http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:Relationship
Please let me know if you need any assistance.

Thank you for joining WikiTree. As a WikiTree Mentor I am available to answer any questions or help solve any issues you may be having. How is your experience with Wikitree going? If you have questions regarding Gedcoms, here's the link to the GEDCOM help category: GEDCOMS
Do you have Royal Ancestors? They are already here on Wikitree! Rather than create duplicate profiles for them, please contact the EuroAristo Project to discuss connecting your family line to their profiles. The Help Index is also an important place to find how to do most tasks.
Feel free to ask me via my profile page if you have any questions.

You are now a member of the WikiTree Community. Please note we are trying to build one Collaborative Tree which means one profile per person. It is important to ensure no duplicates are entered as you add any Profiles to WikiTree.
Our Mentor Team are a friendly bunch of volunteers who will be glad to help you with specific problems if you have any.
Good luck growing your branches, and thanks for offering to help with our shared tree :)
