We've made a change in how the tutorials are sent to new members. Instead of weekly messages you can now work at your own pace.
How is it going so far? Have the How-Tos been helpful or left you with questions?
We want to help! Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.

PS Sometimes links don't work in emails. You can always find a link that works in the public comments on your profile.

You have been here for a while now! We hope your profiles are starting to come together and that you've enjoyed getting to know all of us a little better.
You're probably getting a good feel for the collaborative nature of WikiTree by now. We know that 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.

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!
As always, your questions are welcome! 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.

Our next stop will give you some pointers on how to make your profiles stand out: How to Make the Most of a Profile.

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: Are you related to a Magna Carta Surety Baron?

Welcome to the WikiTree family!
WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person. The Honor Code allows us to work together on one BIG tree.
By now, you should have received an email with links to get you started. When you confirm your email address, you'll have the option to volunteer to add information to WikiTree. Volunteers begin by adding tags for their own profiles; tags allow them to keep up with new information on surnames, locations, concepts, etc.
If you would like to volunteer, a greeter can confirm your membership, and then you'll be on your way!
P.S. I'm always happy to answer questions.
