Hi Edward, I see that you just volunteered and signed our honor code. That's great! Here at WikiTree we like to have our members involved with others; collaboration is key! Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Why don't you stop by the England Project, (currently led/coordinated by Maria Maxwell to see how you can participate? I'll let the leaders know you are interested!

Let me know if you need help with anything. We are glad to have you on board!

How's everything going?

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.

I was born in Flint, Michigan in 1948 to Jay D. Wise and Mary C. Wise nee Gates. I married young and I have three children from that marriage that are grown. I won the Draft lottery in December of 1969 and was inducted into the Army in late February 1970. I retired from the Army in November 1991. I now reside in Missouri with my wife Gwendolyn.

My father was born in Michigan in 1903. His father Joseph was born in Michigan in 1860 or 1861. My great grandfather was born in New York in 1818-1820. My great, great grandfather was born in Pennsylvania in 1790 or 1791. Then I hit a stone wall.

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 have an opportunity to volunteer and tell us about your genealogical interests.

Once you volunteer, one of our Greeters 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.
